Bruce Ivins Wasn’t the Anthrax Culprit

So says the former head of the biological-weapons section of Unscom:

[D]espite the seemingly powerful narrative that Ivins committed suicide because investigators were closing in, this is still far from a shut case. The FBI needs to explain why it zeroed in on Ivins, how he could have made the anthrax mailed to lawmakers and the media, and how he or anyone else could have pulled off the attacks, acting alone.

I believe this is another mistake in the investigation.

Let’s start with the anthrax in the letters to Sens. Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy. The spores could not have been produced at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, where Ivins worked, without many other people being aware of it. Furthermore, the equipment to make such a product does not exist at the institute.

Richard Spertzel was also a member of the Iraq Survey Group. In other words, he knows what he’s talking about.
