This is from the opening para at Newsweek today:
When the FBI publicly branded the late Dr. Bruce Ivins as the anthrax killer, it unsealed court affidavits suggesting a possible motive for the mailing to one target: NBC anchor Tom Brokaw. According to the affidavits, Ivins was angry about repeated Freedom of Information Act requests from Gary Matsumoto, identified as "an investigative journalist who worked for NBC News" who was looking into Ivins's work on an anthrax vaccine. "Tell Matsumoto to kiss my ass," the affidavit says Ivins wrote in an Aug. 28, 2001, e-mail, noting that was "weeks" before the Sept. 18, 2001, anthrax mailing addressed to Brokaw. But Matsumoto told NEWSWEEK the FBI never interviewed him as part of its investigation. If it had, he says, he could have told them he'd actually left NBC News five years earlier. At the time he was bombarding Ivins's lab with FOIA requests, he was employed by ABC. "They're trying to connect dots that don't connect," he said.But of course, that's just Michael Isikoff's article. The Newsweek editorial is grandly titled:
FBI Makes a Powerful Case Against IvinsIt doesn't matter any more whether it is true or not, you see? We have entered into La La Land, where the New York Times can write a seemingly pro-Obama article with a throwaway line like this:
"Out of his hearing, Mr. McCain is called the White Tornado by some people who have worked for him over the years. "Et tu, Brute?
George Washington has been wondering for some time whether a continuity of government plan is already in effect. I tell you what, that would be a good Get Out for the Dems, wouldn't it? "Yeah, we won control of the House and Senate but we couldn't say a damn thing about why we were still powerless..."
Given that the Zionist US neocons including McCain have just launched (by proxy) another (see Israel-Hezbolla circa 2007) stupid war of aggression which is backfiring miserably as we speak, bringing us all to the (once, not long ago, unthinkable) brink of a US-Russia military showdown, we are entitled to be worried.
Meanwhile, for the first time I can remember, antiwar.com is unreachable.... Coincidence?
