No doubt that Bruce Ivins committed suicide
No doubt that Bruce Ivins committed suicide. But, scientists doubt the scientific analysis that linked him to anthrax attacks.
Hey, I’ll tell you this, I am recovering from a bladder infection that is caused by e-coli bacteria getting into my system where it shouldn’t be. Cipro cures the infection and it is the same cure for Anthrax. Rests assure Cipro works.
“Breaking News Alert: Report questions scientific evidence in FBI's anthrax case
February 15, 2011 11:04:12 AM
A panel of prominent scientists is casting new doubt on scientific evidence that was a key part of the FBI's case against Bruce E. Ivins, the deceased Army scientist accused of carrying out the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks.
The National Academy of Sciences, in a report issued Tuesday by its research arm, questioned the link between a flask of anthrax bacteria in Ivins's lab at Fort Detrick, Md., and the anthrax-infested letters that killed five people and sickened 17 others.
The Justice Department has said genetic testing conclusively linked the letters to spores in the flask -- labeled RMR-1029 -- found at the laboratory, where Ivins was a longtime researcher before committing suicide in 2008. The government closed the case last year after concluding that Ivins had single-handedly prepared and mailed the deadly anthrax spores, which terrorized a nation still reeling from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
