Bruce Ivins: American Fall Guy?

Justin Raimondo thinks so.

Ivins the supposed mad anthrax killer, who was supposedly going to shoot up former co-workers, is actually defended by his co-workers.

From Raimondo: we sift through the reams of media coverage occasioned by this startling development in a 7-year-old case, we get quite a different story from the alleged objects of his rage: his colleagues on the job at Ft. Detrick. As the Washington Post reported:

"Colleagues and friends of the vaccine specialist remained convinced that Ivins was innocent: They contended that he had neither the motive nor the means to create the fine, lethal powder that was sent by mail to news outlets and congressional offices in the late summer and fall of 2001. Mindful of previous FBI mistakes in fingering others in the case, many are deeply skeptical that the bureau has gotten it right this time.

"'I really don't think he's the guy. I say to the FBI, "Show me your evidence,"' said Jeffrey J. Adamovicz, former director of the bacteriology division at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases, or USAMRIID, on the grounds of the sprawling Army fort in Frederick. 'A lot of the tactics they used were designed to isolate him from his support. The FBI just continued to push his buttons.'"

Another one of his co-workers, Richard O. Spertzel, pointed out that "USAMRIID doesn't deal with powdered anthrax. I don't think there's anyone there who would have the foggiest idea how to do it. You would need to have the opportunity, the capability, and the motivation, and he didn't possess any of those."

Raimondo's full detailed analysis of the story is here.

And when you finish with the Raimondo piece, move on over to The Smoking Gun, which has a copy of a petition by Jean Duley, filed in Frederick County court in connection with a protective order application. As Raimondo points out she is being identified by MSM as the psychiatrist who treated Ivins and identified him as a "homicidal sociopath", in fact she wasn't Ivins' psychiatrist, and indeed isn't a psychiatrist but a social worker. In her petition she misspells therapist. It appears she had to ask some one how to spell psychiatrist, and she uses the wrong tense for subpoena.

Further, if I was a suspicious person, I might even think she was being prepped that Ivins was a real bad guy . How did she know Ivin had been making threats since graduate school? How did she know about the psychiatrist's diagnosis of Ivins being a "homicidal sociopath"? How did she know Ivins was about to be charged with "5 capital murders"? She sure must have run into quite a talkative FBI agent, at least her knowledge of "5 capital murders" would have likely come from the FBI she references. And, she was supposed to be a witness?

Awfully talkative FBI.
