Senate Smells Anthrax Cover-Up

Please read The Anthrax Attacks and the AmeriKan MSM first.

The Senate KNOWS the FBI is TELLING LIES!!!

"Leahy asserts suspect in '01 anthrax attacks did not act by himself" by Lara Jakes Jordan, Associated Press | September 18, 2008

WASHINGTON - The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said yesterday that he does not believe that Dr. Bruce Ivins acted alone in the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks.

Senator Patrick Leahy was one of the targets of the lethal anthrax-laced letters that killed five and sickened 17 in fall 2001. At a hearing in front of his committee, the Vermont Democrat told FBI Director Robert Mueller that he thinks other people must have been involved.

Leahy did not say why he believed Ivins had help, and he also cast doubt that the Army scientist was the attacker in the first place. "If he is the one who sent the letter, I do not believe in any way, shape, or manner that he is the only person involved in this attack on Congress and the American people. I do not believe that at all," Leahy said.

Welcome aboard, Senator!!!!

He added: "I believe there are others involved, either as accessories before or accessories after the fact. I believe that there are others out there, I believe there are others who could be charged with murder. I just want you to know how I feel about it, as one of the people who was aimed at in the attack."

Mueller did not directly contradict Leahy, saying "I understand that concern."

Yeah, because MUELLER KNOWS it is a DAMNABLE LIE and COVER UP!

Still, Mueller maintained the Justice Department's view that Ivins was the mastermind and sole attacker.

Translation: Mueller will continue with the cover-up and lie.

Why wouldn't he? The guy and his agency are up to their necks in the 9/11 cover-up as it is!!!!

Republicans shared Leahy's doubts surrounding the case. Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the top GOP member of the panel, said he had problems with some of the evidence against Ivins that has been made public.

The review by the National Academy of Sciences will be made up of private scientists who did not assist the FBI in the investigation, and could take up to 18 months to complete. Mueller said he would consider allowing the Judiciary Committee to suggest scientists, but noted that the NAS and Justice Department probably would have to agree to it.

"What's there to consider, Director Mueller?" Specter said. "We'd like to have the authority to name some people there to be sure of its objectivity. We're not interlopers here. This is an oversight matter. What's there to consider?"

Mueller said "to the extent that the rules of the science allow that to happen, I have no objection to that request."

"Well, that's not far enough," Specter snapped.

Sitting in the front row of the audience at the Senate hearing was Dr. Steven Hatfill, another Army scientist who for years was wrongly accused of orchestrating the attacks. The Justice Department in June settled a $5.8 million lawsuit with Hatfill, who claimed his privacy rights were violated by officials speaking with reporters about the case.

Senator Charles Grassley, Republican of Iowa, a longtime skeptic of the anthrax investigation, grilled Mueller on how the FBI could have focused on Hatfill for years when investigators as early as 2002 had lab records showing Ivins was conducting late-night research in the days immediately before the deadly letters were mailed.

Oh what a deadly web we weave....

"Shouldn't the FBI apologize to Dr. Hatfill?" Grassley asked. "Please explain how chasing an innocent man for four years was not a mistake, as you said it was not a mistake."

Mueller said the FBI investigators acted appropriately throughout the case - based on the information they had at any given time.

I'm sick of that fucking lying excuse, too!!!
