Department of Justice casts serious doubt on its own claims about the anthrax attack

Ever since the FBI claimed (for a second time) that it had discovered in 2008 the identity of the anthrax attacker — the recently-deceased-by-suicide Army researcher Bruce Ivins — it was glaringly obvious, as Idocumented many times, that the case against him was exceedingly weak, unpersuasive and full of gaping logicalscientific, and evidentiary holes.  So dubious are the FBI’s claims that serious doubt has been raised and independent investigations demanded not by marginalized websites devoted to questioning all government claims, but rather, by the nation’s most mainstream, establishment venues, ones that instinctively believe and defend such claims — including the editorial pages of the nation’slargest newspapersleading scientific journals, the nation’s preeminentscience officials, and key politicians from both parties (led by those whose districts, or offices, were most affected by the attacks).  To get a sense for the breadth and depth of the establishment skepticism about Ivins’ guilt, just click on some of those links.
