Bruce Edwards Ivins, Iraq WAR and Truth
What Americans watched on TV
What it was:
BACKGROUND: Bruce Edwards Ivins (April 22, 1946 – July 29, 2008) was a microbiologist, vaccinologist, senior biodefense researcher at the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, Maryland and a key suspect in the 2001 anthrax attacks. He committed suicide prior to formal charges being filed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for an alleged criminal connection to the 2001 anthrax attacks. At a news conference at the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) on August 6, 2008, FBI and DOJ officials formally announced that the Government had concluded that Ivins was likely to have been solely responsible for “the deaths of five persons, and the injury of dozens of others, resulting from the mailings of several anonymous letters to members of Congress and members of the media in September and October, 2001, which letters contained Bacillus anthracis, commonly referred to as anthrax.” On February 19, 2010, the FBI released a 92-page summary of evidence against Ivins and announced that it had concluded its investigation. The FBI conclusions have been contested by many, including senior microbiologists and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) who was among the targets in the attack. While not outright rejecting the theory of Ivins’ involvement, Leahy has asserted that “If he is the one who sent the letter, I do not believe in any way, shape or manner that he is the only person involved in this attack on Congress and the American people. I do not believe that at all.” A panel from the National Academy of Sciences reviewed the FBI’s scientific work on the case, and “conclude[d] that the bureau overstated the strength of genetic analysis linking the mailed anthrax to a supply kept by Bruce E. Ivins.” Although investigators also stated that “The totality of the evidence incriminating Dr. Ivins is overwhelming.”
On August 1st 2008, the FBI announced that U.S. Army scientist Bruce Ivins was the culprit behind the 2001 Anthrax Attacks… but that he had killed himself before they could arrest and charge him. Many leading experts are questioning the FBI’s case against Ivins which will never have to be proven in court because the suspect is dead. The former Deputy Commander of Fort Detrick, the top secret lab where Ivins worked, says he is convinced that Ivins could not have made the anthrax powder used in the attacks at Fort Detrick. And at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September 2008 Senator Patrick Leahy, one of the targets of the anthrax laced letters sent to Congress, blasted FBI Director Robert Mueller saying he believed there were others who could be charged with MURDER!
Sandia — which used electron microscopes, unlike the FBI — reported only a tenth as much silicon in the New York Post letter as the bureau’s lab did. Sandia said it was all embedded in the spore coatings, where it wasn’t harmful.
The report said that the tests turned out to be negative but that the evidence was inconsistent, and it called for further review. Federal law enforcement officials said they thoroughly investigated the possibility of terrorist involvement in the anthrax atttacks and are certain there was none.
“For years, the FBI has claimed scientific evidence for its conclusion that anthrax spores found in the letters were linked to the anthrax bacteria found in Dr. Ivins’ lab,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). The report “shows that the science is not necessarily a slam-dunk. There are no more excuses for avoiding an independent review.”

October 26, 2001
— FTW has written little about the Anthrax scare that is being fanned, ad nauseum, by the major media. The stories that change every five minutes about the sources and nature of the infections are, to me, distractions. Bear in mind that – as pointed out be economist Walter Burien – the average American has a much greater chance of winning Powerball than contracting the disease. Another reason why we suspect that the government is being deliberately indecisive is because they are planning for major attacks on Iraq and may want the world to believe that the U.S. government isnÕt sure about the origins of the spores. This, to put Saddam Hussein at ease.
But even that possibility does not answer deeper questions or address lingering suspicions among many Americans. One of the primary questions asked by any good journalist in response to any unexplained event is, “Who benefits?”

A top U.S. government scientist, suspected of the anthrax attacks, commits suicide. ABC News knows who is responsible for false reports blaming those attacks on Iraq, but refuses to say.
On October 18, 2001, McCain appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. When asked how the war in Afghanistan was progressing, McCain volunteered that the invasion of Iraq would be the “second phase” of the War on Terror. He preyed on the public’s fear at the time by claiming that the anthrax “may have come from Iraq”:
LETTERMAN: How are things going in Afghanistan now?
MCCAIN: I think we’re doing fine …. I think we’ll do fine. The second phase — if I could just make one, very quickly — the second phase is Iraq. There is some indication, and I don’t have the conclusions, but some of this anthrax may — and I emphasize may — have come from Iraq.
LETTERMAN: Oh is that right?
MCCAIN: If that should be the case, that’s when some tough decisions are gonna have to be made.
One Month After 9/11, McCain Said Anthrax ‘May Have Come From Iraq,’
Republican Senator John McCain blasted Colin Powell, the Secretary of State under Bush, for the 2003 U.S.-led war against Iraq.
Powell “got us into Iraq,” McCain said in an interview with National Review Online.
“Colin Powell, interestingly enough, said that Obama got us out of Iraq,” McCain said, standing outside of an American Legion hall. “But it was Colin Powell, with his testimony before the U.N. Security Council that got us into Iraq.”
McCain also earlier blasted Powell for endorsing Obama for reelection. “Well, I’m just saddened because, you know, I used to be a great admirer of Colin Powell,” he said. “We were friends. I think one of the sad aspects of his career is going to the United Nations Security Council and telling them things about Iraq that were absolutely false.”
“All I can say is that Gen. Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what has clearly been the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime,” he continued. Seattle Post
Study: War blamed for 655,000 Iraqi deaths
War has wiped out about 655,000 Iraqis or more than 500 people a day since the U.S.-led invasion, a new study reports.
End of U.S. troops occasions minor reflection on war & destruction
The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq has spurred little new information on the scale of destruction in the 8 year, 8 month war. Professor Juan Cole had this to say:
The American public still for the most part has no idea what the United States did to that country, and until we Americans take responsibility for the harm we do others with our perpetual wars, we can never recover from our war sickness, which drives us to resort to violence in international affairs in a way no other democracy routinely does.
Population of Iraq: 30 million.
Percentage of Iraqis who live in slum conditions in 2011: 50
Orphans living in the streets: 600,000.
Proportion of displaced persons who have returned home since 2008: 1/8

How many miltary casualities from USA and ALLIES:
The death toll for the war extends far beyond just United States casualties. Troops from other nations have also perished in the conflict. Among civilian dead, estimates typically reach well beyond 100,000, but a precise reckoning is unlikely to ever be known.
My question is for People of States:
When we are part of family you know what happens when your kid fight out of the home to others?
This issue have to by any means come back to home even you have a family system or not. This is What a government is doing in others homes and killing people on name of Peace and waving inside home as We are the Guardians and We are the PEACE MAKER. Being silent we are not equally responsible for this bloodshed on the Name of Resources or oil. And How many more people gonna be killed around the world either that was IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, PALESTINE, PAKISTAN,SYRIA,KASMIR,BEHRAIN and as well in states. Killing one person is killing of Humanity and here are millions of People have been killed either the home USA or Allies are waging or causalities they are facing in return.
Oppression is oppression and naming different will not change the state either your land or our land.
We need to aware the people on any cost so they cant say we are under the siege of deception of all times by our media or governments.
This Message is for those 98% who are silent and who are not speaking for oppression and against government or the people who rule them. We have one thing Common that we keep on forgetting things soon like what was the reason this war was wagged even their was no grounds all stands on sand pillars. and Where are weapon of Mass Destruction and where are those biochemical or nukes or anthrax Attacks etc what next you gonna fool you Nation and Your People.
Don’t you see !
Don’t you think !
Don’t you Plan !
Wake up People of States. Nothing attacked you if someone did it was your own government by all means and controlling the media. and how long the will keep this bloodshed under the hood. and how long people will keep sleeping. There is always a light after a dark era. if you do not believe than go to history. they crossed all limits of atrocities and oppression of all times and used all possible weapons on human kind even. Oppressor have one identity and that is he do oppression same to all people either on his land or to a far land. So Speak and Raise your voice Before its too Late and Your and Our Generation have to pay.
Bruce Edwards Ivins this guy was a son and sibling and belong to a family and who killed him even raise voice for him.
Over 3,000 US troops have secretly returned to Iraq via Kuwait for missions pertaining to the recent developments in Syria and northern Iraq, Press TV reports.
According to our correspondent, the US troops have secretly entered Iraq in multiple stages and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province.
Reports say the troops include US Army officers and almost 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route.

Is it not open #terrorism Why USA Voted for Israel?
Is USA Blind or covering what? why not for his people ?
Why not people of USA raise their voice together ?

What Peace in Afghanistan/Pakistan/Iraq/Syria/ or many other place by #states #NATO #USA #EU in last 30years given to world ?
Where is independent media ?
#BBC #CNN #NYTIMES
How many thousands this time ?
The propaganda is beginning to flow in EXACTLY the same form as it did in the lead up to the Iraq invasion. Syria was identified long ago as a target for globalist elites, owing to it’s strategic location in the middle east, and it’s continued opposition to the interests of US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
