Pursuant to an aide to the former head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, the White House (particularly Cheney and his henchmen) tried to pressure the FBI into blaming the anthrax attack on al Qa’eda anterior to any investigation whatsoever. That alone is totally criminal, and it debunks the belief that the Bush administration was above blaming a terrorist attack that was, pursuant to the government itself, an inside job on some other enemy as a pretext to go to war. Was the Bush administration blaming an attack like 9/11 on a foreign enemy as a pretext to go to war? Well, they wanted to do it for the anthrax attack.
Bruce Ivins received the highest civilian award the Army has to offer almost two years after he allegedly carried out the anthrax attack. He was given the award by the Dick Cheney acolyte, former Army Brigadier General, Enron executive, Secretary of the Army, Thomas White.
You can see that the government identifies a Department of Defense scientist named Bruce Ivins as the anthrax attacker.
