Is Our Government The Terrorist?

Bruce Ivens is the fall guy for the 2001 anthrax attacks. How convenient that he killed himself. What I remember about the anthrax attacks was that journalists were targeted and that postal workers died. It was a long time ago, and we were told by our government that the anthrax came from Iraq. One of the first justifications for targeting Iraq was it's ability to deliver weaponized anthrax to kill Americans. All of this makes me a bit suspicious that the man who was being targeted this time as the anthrax killer was Bruce Ivens and that he acted alone. It smells like a cover-up, and possibly a conspiracy to prevent the truth from ever being known. But I was never one of those people that bought the story that Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald--the lone gunman.

J Edgar Hoover was the man in charge of the FBI at that time, and he had his reasons for wanting to get rid of Kennedy. Since those days the covert, intelligence gathering aspects of our government have grown like mushrooms in the dark. When G W Bush came into office he had his reasons for wanting to go to war with Iraq. It is no secret that "intelligence" was manufactured to scare the bejesus out of us and push the narrative that somehow Iraq was a bigger threat to us than the terrorists that came out of Saudi Arabia and took down the twin towers on 9/11.

I don't trust many news organizations anymore. But I do still have a bit of faith in NPR. This is one of their stories about the man who killed himself when he became a target in the anthrax "investigation."

In short, I wouldn't be surprised. Please refer to Speed Bumps where I found both progressive and conservative media in agreement.

Petro is on this thread. Have fun. I did...

That was a great read. Thanks Stella.

Got to admit that when I heard about the "suicide" my first thought was how convenient it was. As far back as the last secretary of defense under Clinton, who went on Meet the Press with a five pound bag of sugar saying how many people this could kill if it was anthrax, government types were harping quite a bit on the bio-warfare bogeyman.

This whole thing stinks, from the early Bush interference in finding the actual perp, to this case-closing suicide. Of course, they haven't closed it yet, and I hope they don't if there's any chance that others were involved.

I plan to indulge myself over the next few days on your blog. I feel like a vampire.

Missed you much!

Randal Graves said...

Move along, nothing to see here, the case is closed. God Bless America.

Stella said...

The on-target post that Utah wrote, the astute comments from bb and blueberry, and then—randal. You are the man.

Yes, Utah, I've always felt that this war has been terrorist vs. terrorist vs. terrorist vs. terrorist.... (~sigh~)

Time for me to take randal's advice and move along...

Its all bullshit and bravado dear woman..and they really don't give a shit if we buy it or not.

DivaJood said...

How convenient is that suicide? Really? And what Dusty said is so true. They don't care at all.

Anita said...

same thing with that DC prostitute (or madam, whatever) who just happened to hang herself a few months back. she just felt so awful that she had sinned (and kept a record of the men with whom she sinned) that she just had to go out in back and put a noose around her neck.

right.

Ingrid said...

amen I agree. First he got demonized by the media and now 'was he really innocent'?? Something stinks and it ain't my...(fill in the blanks)

We may never know what happened. But, like you, I never bought the lone gunman theory about JFK, so I am not about to believe the government now either.

E said...

yeah, it's all a bit smelly, isn't it? Like, he's a porno-addicted drunk with homicidal tendencies. And yet we never revoked his clearances to the lab! Sounds like it's all too convenient to be true.
