Who do you think sent the Anthrax right after 9/11?
It came to powerful democrats, news media members and federal employees.

Was it sent by domestic or foreign terrorists? CIA? Neocon extremists?

Was it a warning to STFU to those who may have info of may have been critical to 9/11 and the impending investigation/reporting?

Have any conclusions been drawn as far as who mailed that stuff out?

1. I think it was sent by Stephen Hatfill
His buddies in the CIA seem to have protected him from prosecution even for obvious offenses like using a fake document, a faked Ph.D. to get a security clearance and a job where he had access to many biologicals, including Marburg and Ebola. I don't think the FBI has much doubt that he's the perpetrator but they seem to be prevented from filing charges even on the activities already proven. He should have been picked up on the perjury charge 2 years ago. From this I must conclude that very powerful people in our intelligence community or in our administration don't want him prosecuted.

The conservation movement is a breeding ground of communists
and other subversives. We intend to clean them out,
even if it means rounding up every birdwatcher in the country.
--John Mitchell, US Attorney General 1969-72

2. Hmmm...don't think too many militant Islamists have a beef
with Leahy or Dsachle....or Brokaw.


My paranoid brain still says that it was some clandestine "REALLY Dirty Tricks" arm of the BFEE.

4. I don't know who did it, but I have to tell you about an amazing
coincidence...

On the Latest page there was your thread...

"Who do you think sent the Anthrax right after 9/11?"

and right beneath it another unrelated Lounge thread...

God.

6. well considering that the first person to die
from the attack was the person responsible for the published pictures of the bush twins falling down drunk, I would have to say it was a revenge killing. The other deaths were to provide cover for the real target.

I also believe that the sniper shootings had a real target, the FBI officer shot in the parking lot of home depot. the other shootings were again just a cover for the real target

Yup, I've become that cynical and paranoid and believe the bfee will stop at nothing to get who they want, doesn't really matter if a few innocents get took out in the process.

7. The 'kill one, scare 100' theory. Works with the press, and the US Senate
too, from the look at that august body post-Wellstone.

10. Someone in the government
to engender a greater fear of biological weapons and as an "example" of what will happen if we don't fight this "war on terrorism" as agressively as possible, making the "war on terrorism" a priority in the minds of the American people
