Evidence on Anthrax Case Questioned


The New York Times today published a piece “Anthrax Evidence Called Mostly Circumstantial.”

A leading expert on anthrax, Nass knew the government scientist Bruce Ivins who died in an apparent suicide last week. She has a web page and blog.

Nass said today: “The Justice Department has failed to provide to the public any shred of evidence that really would link Ivins in any kind of definitive way to this crime. …

“I absolutely cannot come up with a motive, with access and the complicated things that would need to be done if he were a loner doing such an act. And I am struck by the fact that there appears to have been at least two previous people who were pointed to who appear to have been patsies — Steven Hatfill being one and Ayaad Assaad being another.”
