If Ivins Went Nuts, It Was the FBI Who Drove Him Crazy

One of the FBI’s pieces of “evidence” against Dr. Ivins is that he sounded nutty, and thought the FBI was out to get him.

If Ivins went nuts, it was because:

  • Ivins was barred from his long-time place of employment
  • Ivins’ colleagues have noted other abuses, and the FBI undoubtedly harassed Ivins in ways which we have not even heard about

As leading reporter Larisa Alexandrovna writes:

“The FBI alleges that Ivins lost his mind and told the counseling group he was attending that he was a target in the FBI investigation and made threats. Remember, this is AFTER the man had been stalked and threatened for several years, and his children harassed, including an attempted (allegedly) bribe of his son. Yes, he lost his mind, but was that not the point after all?”

Indeed, the FBI’s tactics in driving Ivins batty and then saying “see, he must have done it” are similar to the government’s tactics of torturing the Gitmo detainees until they were literally crazy, and then getting “confessions” from them once they were nuts.
