The Mad Scientist

Posted by redsatellite on August 1, 2008

Hmmm….this actually may close the book on all those post 9/11 Anthrax attacks back in 2001. Very strange- the FBI may have found the right guy.

A top U.S. biodefense researcher apparently committed suicide just as the Justice Department was about to file criminal charges against him in the anthrax mailings that traumatized the nation in the weeks following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a published report.

The scientist, Bruce E. Ivins, 62, who worked for the past 18 years at the government’s biodefense labs at Fort Detrick, Md., had been told about the impending prosecution, the Los Angeles Times reported for Friday editions. The laboratory has been at the center of the FBI’s investigation of the anthrax attacks, which killed five people.

I don’t think I would commit suicide if I was INNOCENT. But what’s maddening is…if he was indeed- the mad scientist behind the nationwide Anthrax panic- we will never know what his motive was.

All of this reads like a creepy science fiction book.
