Review: The 2001 Anthrax Deception – By Graeme MacQueen

March 8, 2015


Nearly everyone alive in 2001 remembers the attacks on 9/11, but the anthrax attacks that followed have slipped from the collective memory or were explained as an odd event unrelated to the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Nothing could be further from the truth – the anthrax attacks were planned and carried out by The Deep State as deadly theatre to help launch the war in Iraq.
In his book “The 2001 Anthrax Deception – The Case For a Domestic Conspiracy”, author Graeme MacQueen deconstructs the events and motives of the attackers, their patsies and the lone, disturbed scientist that the FBI hounded to death.
MacQueen does an excellent job of sorting out the confusion surrounding the attacks and the “strategy of tension” used by intelligence agencies from the cold war to present times. It was no accident that both Senators Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy were among the few who were targeted – they were taking a “go slow” approach to the passing of The Patriot Act which the Bush administration deemed essential to their unfolding war and surveillance plans. Beginning with these four basic possibilities; foreign individual / foreign group / domestic individual / domestic group – the scenarios and explanations for the attacks were constantly being modified. There was a significant back-story with alleged hijacker Mohammed Atta making a bold scene while attempting to obtain a loan for a cropduster that would be modified to carry a huge payload. The loan officer was Johnelle Bryant of the Agriculture Department, who listened in calm disbelief as Atta described himself as a member of Al Qaeda, demanded the loan, asked for a picture of Washington D.C. and threatened to slit Bryant’s throat. This was obviously laying the trail to “paint” Atta as part of the future biological attacks, and is reminiscent of CIA-sponsered Lee Harvey Oswald arguing with Cubans in New Orleans.
But tying the attacks to Atta proved difficult and did not fulfill the Iraq war planning, so a “double perpetrator” theory was rolled out. In this scenario, it was Iraq who had assisted Al Qaeda as Iraq had the technological ability to create weapons of mass destruction. The case for the double perpetrator theory collapsed when it was discovered that the type of anthrax was the “Ames Strain” – the exact type developed by the U.S. Military. In the course of a lawsuit by the family of Robert Stevens, the first person to die from the anthrax, it was shown that the anthrax strain was developed at USAMRIID, Dugway Proving Ground in Utah or at Battelle Memorial Institute in Ohio. After failing to link the attacks to a scientist named Steven Hatfill, who held his ground and eventually won a lawsuit against the Justice Department for $5.82 million, the FBI narrowed their investigation to the remaining (innocent) suspect, Dr. Bruce Ivins – who they hounded into suicide.
Graeme MacQueen makes a point that the administration had foreknowledge of the attacks, for instance the White House staff went on the powerful antibiotic “Cipro” a month before the attacks. Further, there were war games such as “Dark Winter” that simulated biological attacks in June of 2001 down to the letter threats, the media response and including Bin Laden as a chief suspect.
There are simply too many details to review in this brief article, but let’s take a look at MacQueen’s summary:

“What is unthinkable for many, including, it appears, members of the U.S. legislative branch, is that in the fall of 2001 elements in the executive branch of the U.S. government collaborated in the killing of innocent citizens in the U.S. and in the attempt to kill Senators. In this way, they furthered their own aims, which included curtailing the freedoms of the U.S. population and carrying out the supreme international crime of aggression against other nations.”

“The 2001 Anthrax Deception” is a book with keys that unlock the secrets behind the aircraft attacks on September 11th, the reckless drive to war, and the stripping of civil liberties. It’s a great book that reads well and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Add this one to your collection.
