a just-published novel raises serious questions about the FBIís failed investigation of the 2001 anthrax case.
If you read the FBIís web posting about what it calls its Amerithrax Investigation, you wonít learn much. Certainly, you will learn nothing about the flood of doubt and skepticism that followed the FBIís statement that Dr. Bruce Ivins, a government scientist at USAMRIID, was the sole perpetrator of the anthrax attacks.
The FBI obviously feels no obligation to actually convince the American people, or even the U.S. Congress, that it has solved the anthrax case. The FBI has thus far refused to answer serious questions raised by U.S. Senators and Congressmen.
Actually, it was a brilliant strategy for the FBI to charge a dead man who could not defend himself. The FBI would never have to prove its case, under oath, in a court of law. No one would ever be in a position to know whether the FBI had actually solved the case or not.
Fortunately, it may not work out the way the FBI wanted it to. It has begun to seem impossible for any reasonably informed person to believe that Dr. Ivins could have been the sole perpetrator, or even that he was involved at all.
Was the FBIís announcement regarding Ivins a smoke screen, a deliberate cover up that persists to this day?
In my new novel CASE CLOSED, I develop a fictional scenario to explain why the FBI didnít solve the case. I present the possibility that the FBI didnít solve the case because they were told not to.
Do I think my story represents what actually happened? Of course not. Itís a novel!
But many early readers, including a well placed source in the Intelligence Community, tell me that my novel is, unfortunately, all too plausible.
CASE CLOSED is available on amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle formats.
