The FBI says that Bruce Ivins, the army scientist who committed suicide in July, emailed himself last year, bragging that he knew who the 2001 anthrax killer was:
“Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!!! I finally know who mailed the anthrax letters in the fall of 2001. I’ve pieced it together!” Ivins wrote in the e-mail dated Sept. 7, 2007, according to an FBI affidavit.
“I’m not looking forward to everybody getting dragged through the mud, but at least it will all be over,” Ivins allegedly wrote. “Finally! I should have it TOTALLY nailed down within the month. I should have been a private eye!!!!”
The e-mail did not say who Ivins thought was the anthrax killer.
Please! Does that read like something written by a 62-year-old world class microbiologist? And even if he did write that junior high level composition, why would Ivins send the email to himself?
Oh, wait, I forgot — Ivins was TOTALLY kuh-RAY-zee!!!!
