A Wax on Anthrax and 9-11 Conspiracy Theorists
Sunday, 25 April 2010 20:49
by Stephen P. Pizzo

I keep getting emails from all those conspiracy hobbyists out there who believe the Bush administration was behind the 9/11 attacks that took down the World Trade Center towers. I don’t believe that for second. But, having said that, I do believe Dick Cheney and his close circle of neocon friends were more than capable of killing Americans to further their larger world vision.

I have all kinds of reasons for believing they had very little if anything to do with the 9/11 attacks — other than appreciating them as stroke of luck for them and their plans. Instead I would point my conspiracy friends to the anthrax attacks, which followed the 9/11 attacks by almost exactly one week.

Follow my thinking here for moment.

Secretly engineering the attacks that took down the twin towers would have been so far beyond the government’s proven abilities that it boggles the mind. It would have taken dozens technicians and tens of dozens more support personnel, all with the highest clearances, to plant the explosives, choreograph - or aid and abet in — the planes, hijackers etc. Afterwards it would take an act of God to assure no one involved ever spilled the beans, even on their deathbed.

The fact of the matter is the twin towers destroyed exactly the way most of us saw it happen live on TV.

Nevertheless, as I noted above, those attacks were a godsend for the Cheney neocons. And it was a stroke of “luck” they were not to going to allow to go stale. Instead, I would contend, they decided to leverage it by engineering their own "terrorist attack” employing means and tools well within their level of competency: envelopes, mailboxes and bugs. They knew that, even in the wake of the 9/11 attacks there would still be opposition to any robust military action. So the anthrax attacks would serve as a “booster shot of fear,” for those Americans or members of congress still unconvinced that the entire Muslim Middle East had to be slapped down and slapped down hard.
 

How much more simple that would was than the massive engineering feat that would have been required to take down the towers by planting explosives on each floor, etc. Here all that was required was a little anthrax powder and few envelopes. I suspect you’ll find almost no one in Cheney’s circle of trusted neocon friends who can even start up an airplane or implode a skyscraper. But name me any government bureaucrat who isn’t completely competent with the basic white, business-sized, standard issue envelope. So easy. Also the number of accomplishes needed gets whittled down to a number that is not only easy to imagine, but also small enough to keep the secret — two, three tops. And that silence would be self-enforced since each and everyone of them would be charged with first degree murder if one talked.

So, to those of you who keep trying to prove that the Bush administration was behind the World Trade Center massacre, I have news for you — you’ve been had. Haven’t you ever wondered why the Bushies never launched a concerted campaign to discredit you and theories? They could have. After all, we know just how really good that they were.. But, why would they, since you were spending all your time and energies trying to get everyone to look in the wrong place? In short, you were doing their work for them.

You might have noticed, if you’ve followed the twists and turns in the anthrax case, that they never convicted anyone with that crime. When no foreign connection could be found the FBI — which was as much in the dark about all this as anyone — turned to domestic suspects. Who knows exactly how the FBI was fed those false leads or by whom and, of course the FBI has it’s own history of barking up wrong trees. But their first suspect, Dr. Steven Hatfill, ended up suing the government and winning a $6 million damage award. There were others (see here)

Their last suspect decided to commit suicide rather than sue, giving the FBI a perfect way to claim victory and get this albatross of a case off their books. They declared the case solved and closed it. Dead men don’t sue.

Am I accusing Cheney et al, of being behind the anthrax attacks? Well, that’s for me to know. What I am saying though is that if their was a government conspiracy afoot to get us into two wars in Middle East, the most likely of the two conspiracy theories is the anthrax attacks, not the twin towers.

Here’s more on that from today’s news:

Colleague Rebuts Idea That Suspect’s Lab Made Anthrax in Attacks

By Scott Shane

“Whoever did this is still running around out there,” Dr. Heine said. “I truly believe that.”

WASHINGTON — A former Army microbiologist who worked for years with Bruce E. Ivins, whom the F.B.I. has blamed for the anthrax letter attacks that killed five people in 2001, told a National Academy of Sciences panel on Thursday that he believed it was impossible that the deadly spores had been produced undetected in Dr. Ivins’s laboratory, as the F.B.I. asserts.

Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who committed suicide in 2008, had carried out the attacks, the microbiologist, Henry S. Heine, replied, “Absolutely not.” At the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, where Dr. Ivins and Dr. Heine worked, he said, “among the senior scientists, no one believes it.”

Dr. Heine told the 16-member panel, which is reviewing the F.B.I.’s scientific work on the investigation, that producing the quantity of spores in the letters would have taken at least a year of intensive work using the equipment at the army lab. Such an effort would not have escaped colleagues’ notice, he added later, and lab technicians who worked closely with Dr. Ivins have told him they saw no such work.

He told the panel that biological containment measures where Dr. Ivins worked were inadequate to prevent the spores from floating out of the laboratory into animal cages and offices. “You’d have had dead animals or dead people,” he said.

Many U.S. Intelligence Veterans Do Not Believe Official 9/11 Account
Many senior veterans of the U.S. Intelligence Services also do not believe the official account of 9/11.

- William Christison, Former Director of Regional and Political Analysis, CIA, "The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly did not collapse and fall to earth because hijacked aircraft hit them. A plane did not hit Building 7 of the Center, which also collapsed. All three were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11."

- Maj. Gen. Albert Stubblebine, Former Commanding General US Army Intelligence, regarding the WTC Towers, "They didn't fall down because airplanes hit them. They fell down because of explosives went off inside. Demolition."

- Terrell Arnold, Former Deputy Director of Counter-terrorism, US State Dept., "I'm not satisfied by the notion that planes hitting buildings constructed as these would have caused them to collapse. The last building to fall was not even attacked. ... The chances of two buildings of that height and structure merely collapsing in their own footprint are extremely slim."

- Ray McGovern, Former Chairman, National Intelligence Estimates, "I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 report is a joke." (NIEs are the consensus report of all US Intelligence Services and according to the CIA "are the Intelligence Community’s most authoritative written judgments on national security issues.")

Beliefs and facts
The author above writes: "Secretly engineering the attacks that took down the twin towers would have been so far beyond the government’s proven abilities that it boggles the mind." According to him the US government, which spends more than all other nations of the world together for the military, intelligence and covert operations, has not the "proven abilities" to engineer 9/11 while 19 Muslim amateurs who never flew a jet possessed the "abilities" to overwhelm the crew and passengers of four aircraft almost simultaneously, kill the pilots and co-pilots before they could say Oops and fly these large jets with pinpoint accuracy to their deadly targets. We are also asked to believe that the chap who went about in Florida in the US under the name of Mohamed Atta was the same person who studied architecture in Hamburg, did not drink alcool and was shy of women, whereas the "American Atta" was seen drunk just days before 9/11 and spent weeks living with a former stripper. We are also asked to believe that this "American Atta" made a point to tell an employee of the Department of Agriculture in May 2000 that he loved Osama bin Laden and that Al Qaeda needs American volunteers and that he wants to know what security there is at the World Trade Center. We also are asked to believe that it was sheer luck that only Atta's luggage "did not make it" to the doomed flight in Boston and when opened, the FBI found therein a whole paraphenalia of "Muslim terrorists" tools, including a Qur'an, flight manuals, pepper spray, knives and a will. It apparently was also "luck" that a passport of one of the "hijackers" was found in perfect condition in the street below the World Trade Center minutes after the alleged crash. Apparently the passport found its way through from the inner pocket of the hijacker, through the fire and down to a location where a passerby could find it. Apparently, the FBI was extremely lucky on 9/11, so lucky that the entire story of 9/11 was ready for a Congress resolution, 24 hours later. John Ashcroft actually told on 12 September 2001 that the priority of the day was not to "solve a crime" but to prevent new attacks, although Ari Fleischer, in his press conference on the same morning said that the "attack was over".

Is it wonder that people ask tough questions?

The fact is....
The fact is that the three WTC buildings were blown up. This has been established beyond a shadow of doubt. Please visit ae911truth.org and find out for yourself. It doesn't matter how incredible it might seem to the author; it happened. But I do think the author is right about the anthrax. For all practical purposes, it was personally mailed by Cheney to the offices of Tom Daschle. If you believe the Bush administration was murderous enough to mail anthrax to the Senate Majority Leader, can you doubt that they also engineered 9/11?
