Ivins is the third scientist who the government has accused of being the Anthrax killer.
First the Egyptian scientist, Dr. Ayaad Assaad, was framed.
When that frame-up fell apart, they tried to frame Stephen Hatfill.
Now, a couple of weeks after the frame-up against Hatfill unraveled, they are claiming that Ivins is the guy.
As a top anthrax expert says:
“I am struck by the fact that there appears to have been at least two previous people who were pointed to who appear to have been patsies — Steven Hatfill being one and Ayaad Assaad being another.”
No wonder the former Senate Majority leader – who was himself mailed anthrax – said “he did not know if the investigation involving Ivins ‘is just another false track and a real diversion of where they need to be. We don’t know, and they aren’t telling us.’ “
