Big Dan's Big News August 5, 2008

The breaking news is that a U.S. government scientist was the anthrax mailer. McCain said in this video in 2001 that Iraq had something to do with the anthrax mailings! What was John McCain referencing when he went on national television in October, 2001 and claimed "there is some indication, and I don't have the conclusions, but some of this anthrax may -- and I emphasize may -- have come from Iraq"?

One Month After 9/11, McCain Said Anthrax ‘May Have Come From Iraq,’ Warned Iraq Is ‘The Second Phase’

So, why isn't McCain addressing this or being asked about it by the media? And why isn't Obama hopping all over this to make McCain look bad? In fact WHAT POLITICIANS ARE ADDRESSING THIS ANTHRAX STORY??? McCain should be made to address his 2001 statements saying Iraq had something to do with the anthrax mailings! He's running for president, for Christ's sake! Doesn't anyone care about this?

After the Oct. 5, 2001, death from anthrax exposure of Sun photo editor Robert Stevens, Mueller was "beaten up" during President Bush's morning intelligence briefings for not producing proof the killer spores were the handiwork of terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden, according to a former aide.

"They really wanted to blame somebody in the Middle East," the retired senior FBI official told The News.

FBI was told to blame Anthrax scare on Al Qaeda by White House officials

The government is trying to bury the 2001 anthrax attack scandal (the anthrax came from a U.S. military base) by claiming that one of the key suspects - Bruce E. Ivins - was a "lone nut" who committed suicide. The government claims that the anthrax letters were an innocent mistake which was "part of an Army scientist's warped plan to test his cure for the deadly toxin". Case closed. There are just a couple of loose ends:

Ivins is the third scientist who the government has accused of being the Anthrax killer.

The Anthrax Attack Was a Classic False Flag Operation Targeting Arabs. Whether or not Bruce Ivins had a role in the anthrax attacks, trying to now blame him alone for the attacks is ignoring the elephant in the room: the anthrax attack was a classic false flag attack blamed on Arabs.

Supposed anthrax mailer, being tried in the media with only circumstantial evidence, was a registered Democrat! Remember? The anthrax letters were mailed to Democrats and media heads, and NO Republicans! So, that doesn't make sense, does it?

Exclusive: Government's Purported 'Anthrax Killer' Was a Registered Democrat. Party Affiliation of the Now-Deceased Bruce Ivins, as Confirmed by His Local County Board of Elections, Adds Yet Another Curious Question to the Increasingly Troubling Investigation into the Post-9/11 Terrorist Attacks on American Soil...

NYTimes: Evidence against supposed anthrax mailer Ivins "circumstantial".

Glenn Greenwald: "Two prominent journalism professors -- Jay Rosen of NYU and Dan Gillmor, director of the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University and a practicing journalist for 25 years -- have added their names to the list of people calling on ABC News and Brian Ross to reveal their sources for ABC's false bentonite story that was used to link the anthrax attacks to Iraq. Rosen and Gillmor both write that ABC and Ross should answer three questions which they jointly outline, and they both set forth the reasons, grounded in widely accepted principles of journalistic ethics, as to why ABC and Ross should do so."

The unresolved story of ABC News' false Saddam-anthrax reports

1. Sources who are granted confidentiality give up their rights when they lie or mislead the reporter. Were you lied to or misled by your sources when you reported several times in 2001 that anthrax found in domestic attacks came from Iraq or showed signs of Iraqi involvement?

2. It now appears that the attacks were of domestic origin and the anthrax came from within U.S. government facilities. This leads us to ask you: who were the "four well-placed and separate sources" who falsely told ABC News that tests conducted at Fort Detrick showed bentonite in the anthrax sent to Sen. Tom Daschle, causing ABC News to connect the attacks to Iraq in multiple reports over a five day period in October, 2001?

3. A substantially false story that helps make the case for war by raising fears about enemies abroad attacking the United States is released into public debate because of faulty reporting by ABC News. How that happened and who was responsible is itself a major story of public interest. What is ABC News doing to re-report these events, to figure out what went wrong and to correct the record for the American people who were misled?

Three Questions For ABC News About Its Anthrax Reporting

We're still waiting for ABC news to be subpoenaed in front of congress to disclose their sources for their false anthrax stories from 2001!

Daschle criticizes anthrax investigation, saying FBI should provide more information. WASHINGTON -- Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, whose office was a target of the anthrax attacks in 2001, said Sunday the suicide of the government's main suspect does not mean the case is over.

"I have been a close friend of Dr. Bruce Ivins for years. The FBI needed a scapegoat, especially after Stephen Hatfill, whose foot the FBI ran over, won a $5.2 M lawsuit against them.

The new FBI director needed a capture in this case. So, they took all of the Ft. Detrick anthrax researchers and put them under intense interrogation.

Bruce was a mild, meek and sensitive scientist. The FBI showed his clinically depressed daughter, who was institutionalized in a mental hospital, photos of the anthrax victims, and said "your father did this." They offered his son $2.5 M and a sportscar if he would "rat" on his father.

Bruce could not stand stand up to the constant harrasment by the FBI. So we have lost a very talented researcher, so that the FBI can close the case..."

"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.

"Therapist" Jean Duley, the quotable media darling on the Ivins/anthrax case, was a "social worker", not a "therapist", and here's all her DUI's and battery charges...quite a lot of cases, huh?


Attention Rush Limbaugh and Republican voters: Shut up about off shore drilling! Even Bush isn't backing you!

White House won't back GOP drilling protest

Billionaire Rush Limbaugh doesn't mention this to his "dittoheads" when he says that the "Republicans are fighting for you for off shore drilling"...he leaves out that the REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT isn't fighting for you???

Hey Rush! Remember when the Republicans were in charge of the House and Sensenbrenner-R shut off the lights on the Democrats? At 4 minutes into this video, Sensenbrenner bangs the gavel, walks out, shuts off the Democrats' microphones while they're speaking, and shuts down the meeting over objections of then-minority Democrats.


Be! All that you can be! Fight endless wars longer than WWII to make Bush & his "friends 'n family" rich! In the Middle East!
