Sorry if this is old news but i haven't really seen it mentioned anywhere in the research circles. Hoping someone more up to date on the Anthrax attacks might like to add these to their research if there's something to it.

These seem like intresting artciles from NYT Sept 4th 2001, kinda lost in the memory hole?
Is it relevant? Not relevant? If this wasn't how they made the Anthrax, it at least shows how easily they could of made it out of sight from the Pentagon, Congress and even the White House to frame a patsy later on.

I know the Gov says in regards to this information, that it was all above board but considering a week later 9/11 was produced....

Read the full articles from the links, i'll just post some interesting parts....




Next to Old Rec Hall, a 'Germ-Making Plant'
Published: September 4, 2001

FULL ARTICLE: query.nytimes.com...

In a nondescript mustard-colored building that was once a military recreation hall and barbershop, the Pentagon has built a germ factory that could make enough lethal microbes to wipe out entire cities.

The factory was built by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, an arm of the Pentagon that works to contain the spread of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. Officials said the project was intended to assess how hard it would be for a terrorist or rogue nation to assemble a germ factory.

Officials stressed that the plant never made anthrax or any other lethal pathogen. Rather, it produced only harmless biopesticides during two production test runs in 1999 and 2000. Dr. Davis declined to say how much was made. But if it had been anthrax germs, he said, it would have made enough to kill at least 10,000 people.

Dr. Davis and other officials said the Defense Department's lawyers had carefully reviewed the project to ensure that it did not violate the biological weapons treaty or American law. Because it was purely defensive and never made deadly germs, it was both legal and appropriate, he and others said.

But apparently few outside of the agency or even in the Pentagon's upper echelons knew much about the secret project. Dr. Davis said the White House was never briefed about it, given its small scale and low cost.


When subsequently told about the germ factory, several former White House officials said they were stunned that the agency's lawyers had approved it without having referred it to the White House or Congressional oversight committees for legal review.

Some officials said the project, with its fermentation aspect, was named for Bacchus, the Greek god of wine. But an agency spokesman said the name was an acronym for Biotechnology Activity Characterization by Unconventional Signatures.



Then a much longer article came out on the same day with more detail and history.



U.S. Germ Warfare Research Pushes Treaty Limits
Published: September 4, 2001

FULL ARTICLE: query.nytimes.com...

The projects, which have not been previously disclosed, were begun under President Clinton and have been embraced by the Bush administration, which intends to expand them.

Earlier this year, administration officials said, the Pentagon drew up plans to engineer genetically a potentially more potent variant of the bacterium that causes anthrax, a deadly disease ideal for germ warfare.

The experiment has been devised to assess whether the vaccine now being given to millions of American soldiers is effective against such a superbug, which was first created by Russian scientists. A Bush administration official said the National Security Council is expected to give the final go-ahead later this month.

Yes - I started a thread on this only a couple of months ago.

The only suspect in the case committed "suicide" last month, and the FBI have now closed the case saying there isn't anyone else involved, as the suspect killed himself.

Rather too tidy IMHO.......
