Why I Think Bush Is The Anthrax Terrorist
"When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains--however
improbable--must be the truth." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I believe that George W. Bush is the anthrax terrorist, that he,
as president, ordered or approved the mailing of weaponized anthrax
produced by the CIA, Fort Detrick, Dugway or some other secret U.S.
germ warfare program, that he personally selected some or all the
targets and that he did so as a kind of Operation
Northwoods meant to justify an invasion of Iraq but also to
get the Patriot Act passed and to further implement his unconstitutional
seizure of power. I also believe his choice of targets show not
just callousness but personal vengeance and was an attack on the
constitution and on American democracy itself.
I think back to the weeks after 9/11 when there were rumors of
a bioweapons attack by terrorists. First a photo-editor who worked
for American Media got sick with anthrax then another American Media
employee as well. Then postal workers. Some lived. Some died. The
Bush White House pointed at Iraq and I bought it. Why wouldn't I?
Like almost everyone else I was still reeling in shock from 9/11
and willing to believe anything. But time went by and more and more
information came out that pointed, not to Iraq, but to the US military
establishment and the CIA, evidence that eventually, I think, came
to point back at the Bush administration and at Bush himself.
Let me run down the facts that let me to this conclusion:
- US bioweapons programs used the
Ames strain of anthrax. Iraqi weapons program used the vollum
strain. Despite this and other evidence that Iraq was not
he source of the anthrax used in the attacks, the Bush administration
tried to use the attacks as justification for war with Iraq. (See
- DNA analysis of the anthrax
used in the attacks revealed that it was not just the same general
Ames strain but was genetically identical to reference strains
from Fort Detrick or Dugway. If it had been separated from the
Detrick strain by more than 3 years, there would be genetic differences.
There were none. So it was not a strain sold to Iraq 15 or 20
years ago. It was not an old sample stolen 10 or 20 years ago.
- The anthrax was made within
2 years or less. Again, this shows it was not an old stolen sample.
- The purity of the material
was such that no person could have produced it outside a very
sophisticated lab. It could only have been grown in a Level
3 Biosafety Containment facility and weaponized in a Level 4 Biosafety
- The anthrax used in the attacks contains
the same additives used in to make weaponized anthrax in the US
bioweapons program. This was a secret, classified recipe known
only to the very few scientists who worked in the program. Few
things in the world were (or are) more secret than this formula.
- Very few people in the
world had access to the strain of Ames anthrax present in
the anthrax attacks, access to a Level 4 containment facility
and knew the secret US method for weaponizing anthrax. The number
of people who could produce it has been estimated to be as few
as four to six people and no more than 20. They have all been
investigated and their movements tracked, their homes, cars, workplaces
tested for anthrax.
- The CIA has refused to reveal,
even to the FBI, what programs they have that have grown and weaponized
anthrax spores. Everyone else has been investigated.
- The White House braced for an anthrax
attack BEFORE any anthrax attack, like they knew it was coming.
- There were attempts to set up Steven
Hatfill as a scapegoat.
- The use of the FBI and the entire mechanism of the government
to cover up this obvious conclusion
and devise, develop SOME WAY the attack did not originate with
the US bioweapans programs
- The combination of targets would
only have been chosen by George Bush.
So why do I think this all happened? I think from Day 1(and before)
of the Bush Administration, there was a plan to attack Iraq. I think
the Bush Administration had had weaponized anthrax produced and
that on 9/11 it was ready to use. They didn't choose antibiotic-resistant
anthrax. They didn't intend a lot of additional deaths and they
wanted to make sure that their butts were safe. After 9/11 they
had everyone in the White House put on Cipro and went ahead with
the plan to use the anthrax as an Operation
Northwoods, as a war pretext* to justify
invading Iraq, but they still had to decide on targets. So they
asked Bush: Who should we send it to?
"You [expletive] son of a bitch," Hunt quotes Bush
as saying. "I saw what you wrote. We're not going to forget
They say the first target of any serial murderer is always the
most personal so Bush reached into his heart and chose the first
targets, personal targets. Bush chose the photo-editor on the tabloid
that printed the "Drunk Jenna" picture and then the editor
of the tabloid that had done story after story on the Boozing Bush
Twins. Other cabal members, such as Rumsfeld and Cheney and Rove,
may have chosen subsequent targets but I have no doubt that Bush
personally chose the first two and chose them out of the malevolence
of his heart.
And you can criticize me, but don't
criticize my children and don't criticize my daughters-in-law
and don't criticize my husband, or you're dead...Barbara Bush
Is this a family trait?
Next we have Tom Brokaw doing the unthinkable: putting an interview
with Clinton on the evening news. The White House called up to rant
and object (probably Rove) but Brokaw went ahead and broadcast the
"You [expletive] son of a bitch," Hunt quotes Bush
as saying. "
. We're not going to forget this."
That evening the third anthrax laced letter entered the mail stream,
addressed to Tom Brokaw. Brokaw had not obeyed and had made them
mad. So they decided to get even with him.
I think the press knows or suspects that the Bush administration
was the source of the anthrax, saw how easily any of them could
be targeted, and so, though they have been disgustingly docile for
the last years, I cut them a little slack. Their lives could have
been in danger if they acted as real journalists. I remember the
fates of Steve Kangas and James Hatfield and I cut them a little
The next two targets require the least explanation. They were the
most obvious and in some ways the most troubling: Senate Majority
Leader Thomas Daschle and Senator Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the
Senate Judiciary Committee, the two Senators who attempted to slow
the passage of the US Patriot Act. The anthrax was postmarked October
9th, during the fiercest debate. After the anthrax was received
Daschle and Leahy accepted a more repressive version of the bill,
a bill that was passed without the members of the House even being
allowed to read it.
The atmosphere of terror in Congress was
expressed by Representative Dennis Kucinich of Ohio: ".
. . a state of siege trap[s] us in a state of fear, ill equipped
to deal with the patriot games, the mind games, the war games.
. ." He lamented the physical and psychological disruption
and disorientation of lawmakers at a time when calm objectivity
was required for wise decisions. No doubt, the terrorized senators
accepted an anti-terrorism bill more threatening to the rights
and well-being of citizens than they otherwise would have. They
granted more power to the President than they otherwise would
By the time anthrax was mailed to Daschle and Leahy on October
9th photoeditor Bob Stevens had died and many other individuals
had been infected so the cabal knew the material was deadly. This
wasn't a feint, it was a deadly attack, an attack with a Weapon
of Mass Destruction against the heart of American Democracy. Dozens
of senators and their staffs might have sickened and died. I believe
the target of this attack was not just Daschle and Leahy, not just
the Senate, but American democracy itself, that it was an attempt
to end it.
"You don't get everything you want. A dictatorship would
be a lot easier." Describing what it's like to be governor
of Texas.(Governing Magazine 7/98)
It nearly worked. The House voted to adjourn indefinitely
leaving Bush with the power of the purse. Minority Leader Lott proposed
that the Senate do the same.
"A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's
no question about it, " [Bush] said. -- Business Week,
July 30, 2001
There is a curious coincidence between
what Lott proposed and the decision by the Bush administration
after the September 11 terrorist attacks to establish a shadow
government in secret bunkers which would provide continuity in
the event of a nuclear/chemical/biological attack that destroyed
Washington DC. The shadow government was also limited to the executive
branch, making no provision for the safeguarding or reconstitution
of an elected legislature.
The political consequences of the anthrax
terrorism and the Bush administration's plans for a shadow government
dovetailed completely. Both would have shut down the legislative
branch and left the executive branch with virtually unrestricted
"I told all four that there are going to be some times
where we don't agree with each other, but that's OK. If this were
a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long
as I'm the dictator." George W. Bush -- CNN.com, December
But Daschle wouldn't play. He refused to allow the Senate to adjourn
indefinitely leaving any of its powers to the Bush Administration.
They tried to murder him and for all he knew they might try again
but he wouldn't cave. When, someday, they look back at October of
2001 and make a list of the cowardly and the complicit, Tom Daschle
will not be found to be either. If he had agreed, instead of seriously
wounded, democracy might be dead in America right now, Bush might
very well openly be dictator. Tom Daschle is my hero.
But where does this lead? I believe that sending Daschle and Leahy
anthrax proves that the Bush cabal was willing to kill them. So
they were willing to kill Senators. What Senator died in 2002? Senator
Paul Wellstone-in a plane crash. Was it sabotage? We'll probably
never know but it certainly makes it possible. It puts it in the
realm of things they would do. If they were willing to kill Senators
with the anthrax attacks, why wouldn't they be willing to kill one
in a plane crash.
Declassified CIA Assassination Manual:
For secret assassination
the contrived accident is the
most effective technique. When successfully executed, it causes
little excitement and is only casually investigated.
When they sent anthrax to Senators, when they made an overt attack
on Congress, on Democracy, they showed they were willing to bring
it down. But was that the first attack on Congress?
Here we go further into darkness.
The Germans say that their investigation of 9/11 revealed that
the target of Flight 93 was the Capitol building. If Flight 93 hadn't
sat on the runway, delayed for almost an hour, if the passengers
hadn't found out about the attacks on the WTC and tried to take
the plane black, if nothing had delayed or stopped Flight 93, would
it have plowed into the Capitol with the House and Senate in session?
Would that have been a first attempt to end democracy in the United
States? Was that what Bush was waiting for as he sat doing nothing
in a classroom in Florida? Was he waiting for the destruction of
the legislative branch of government leaving all the reins of power
and pocketbook in his hand? Did we come close to losing democracy?
Now there are plenty of websites that will lead you down the 9/11
path and show how it points back to the Bush cabal but a good starting
place is the comparatively more moderate article by Micheal Meacher:
war on terrorism is bogus". Meacher served on Tony Blair's
cabinet for 6 years.
Many of the 9/11 sites make it more complicated than I can accept,
with remote controlled planes, faked phone calls, explosives set
in the WTC towers, a missile striking the Pentagon with the real
plane crashed into the ocean.
Even though they often make good points it all gets too convoluted
for me. I have a simpler theory, one that is based on the '91 Gulf
War. If a ruler wants war and wants his country's allies and his
own people to support it, how does it he arrange it? He gets his
target to attack him or an ally. When Bush41 wanted a war with Saddam
how did he manage it? He knew that Saddam was in debt and desperate
for money. He knew Saddam was angry at Kuwait for slant drilling
into Iraqi oil fields. So he sent Ambassador April Gilespie to tell
Saddam that America didn't care if he invaded Kuwait. Then when
Saddam did, the Bush41 administration had liars go on TV and lie
about what was happening. Remember the "nurse" who testified
behind a screen about babies removed from incubators and left to
die on a concrete floor? A lie. The "nurse" was the Kuwaiti
ambassador's 16 year old daughter testifying behind a screen so
no one who knew her would give the lie away, lying about something
that never happened, lying to sway the American people.
How do you start an open-ended war that the American people will
support? You arrange a "Pearl Harbor."
According to Brzezinski, the USA is such
a "increasingly multi-cultural society" and the average
people are not inclined to support any more Vietnams, the only
thing that will motivate massive emotional support for foreign
wars is something like "the shock effect of the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor." America will likely "find it
more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues,
except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived
direct external threat."
So, if you were the Bush Cabal and you wanted a "Pearl Harbor"
attack on the United States, how would you arrange it, if you were
a traitor? First you couldn't just order it. Believe it or not I
don't think there are many people under the command of the president
who would attack the US killing thousands of Americans. You would
have to engineer the attack so the military, the government, perhaps
even the CIA didn't know what you had planned because any of them
might have blocked such an attack.
Let's start with the concept of the agent provocateur, a secret
agent who prods individual(s) into carrying out an illegal action.
Turns out there is a whole task force to do just that:
The Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group,
(P2OG), brings together CIA and military covert action, information
warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception. Among other things,
this body launches secret operations aimed at "stimulating
reactions" among terrorists and states possessing weapons
of mass destruction -- that is, for instance, prodding terrorist
cells into action and exposing themselves to "quick-response"
attacks by U.S. forces.
Al Qaeda had been making attacks on US Embassies, on the Cole,
Clinton had been responding with missiles aimed at where Bin Laden
had been just a few hours before. For them to know where to send
those missiles they had to have agents in Al Qaeda. It had been
known since 1996 that there was an Al Qaeda plan to hijack airliners
and use them as missiles but that it had not been approved. How
could they get Bin Laden to set it in motion? How about push him
and the Taleban into a corner, send "negotiators" to make
threats, to give them the "carpet of gold or carpet of bombs"
choice, with the golden choice one their religion and their hatred
of the west would not allow them to make and which Bin Laden knew
would lead to his being pushed out of Afghanistan or killed. Was
that the prod that made him authorize Mohammed Atta's plan?
Declassified CIA Assassination Manual:
In lost assassination [an assassination in which the assassin
plans to die], the assassin must be a fanatic of some sort. Politics,
religion, and revenge are about the only feasible motives. Since
a fanatic is unstable psychologically, he must be handled with
If the CIA has been manipulating fanatics into committing assassination
for 50 years, don't you think they would be able to manipulate them
into hijacking planes?
So then the Bush Cabal smoothed the way. Just for a start they
made it easier for Saudi recruits to get visas to the US, pulled
the FBI off the Bin Ladens, blocked FBI terrorism investigations
so John O'Neil resigned in protest, and ignored Dick Clarke, who
was the National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection,
and Counter-terrorism. They could do all this without their underlings
knowing how the pieces fit together. Then they had the regulations
for NORAD changed in June 30, 2001 so fighters were not allowed
to intercept hijacked planes without the authorization of the Secretary
of Defense. Already they could not be shot down with the president's
permission. So Atta's plan went forward. Did Atta even know the
path was being smoothed for him? So Bush left Washington and New
York City to their fates while he went down to Florida into the
safety of his brother's dictatorship, a state Jeb Bush quietly put
under martial law the week before. Safe in Florida he let it unfold.
Safe in the White House bunker Cheney let it unfold. Safe in his
office Rumsfeld let it unfold. Waiting for their war pretext. Waiting
for the coup de grâce on Congress. Bush sat in that
schoolroom in Florida, waiting for it all to unfold.
But something went wrong (or right from our point of view). Delayed,
Flight 93 sat on the runway instead of heading toward its target.
By the time it was airborne, by the time it was hijacked, it was
too late for a surprise hit on the Capitol. Then the passengers
started using air phones and cell phones to call home and found
out they were doomed. Some of them decided to stop what was happening,
to take control of their own fate. They got up to try to take the
plane back. The FBI had been listening in on their calls, clued
in by their families and the operators they were talking to, the
FBI reporting to the White House (do you doubt it?) so when they
got up, when they tried to take the plane back, then, only then,
did Cheney give the order to shoot down Flight 93? (Cheney has admitted
he gave the order but the Bush Administration denies it was carried
the order came only when the passengers got up to
try to take the plane back.)
Declassified CIA Assassination Manual: In
lost assassination, the assassin must be a fanatic of some sort.
Politics, religion, and revenge are about the only feasible motives.
Since a fanatic is unstable psychologically, he must be handled
with extreme care. He must not know the identities of the
other members of the organization, for although it is intended
that he die in the act, something may go wrong. While the
Assassin of Trotsky has never revealed any significant information,
it was unsound to depend on this when the act was planned.
The hijackers had to die in the act. Even if they knew little,
their interrogations might have provided information that led, step
by step, back to the cabal.
I bet the cabal was disappointed. Congress was still there. So
they tried again with the anthrax. Congress made things harder but
they finally managed to wrap it around their fingers. Killed Wellstone.
Fixed the election in Georgia to get Max Cleland out. Then, while
they didn't have perfect control, it was pretty near. They were
able to get everything they wanted.
Thus endeth my theory. I pray I am wrong. Let us all pray I am.
