When something smells this funny, it isn’t funny

Have you been thinking about Bruce E. Ivins, the supposed anthrax killer who killed himself last week just before he was going to be indicted? Yeah, me too.

Do you smell something fishy here, or did someone open a can of tuna? I mean right before the presidential elections they say they finally found the anthrax killer but unfortunately he is dead. So on that note they are considering closing the case and turning out the lights. Well, that’s done. Now let’s just all forget about it, okay?

Remember the first man they were sure did it was Dr. Stephen Hatfill. What if he had “committed suicide” during the time he was under investigation? Do you think they would have closed the case at that time?

There’s just something too convenient about this story about Mr. Ivins, don’t you think?

Scary that this guy had a big time security clearance but was supposedly as crazy as a bedbug.
They just finished paying Hatfield some 3.5 million for the hassle they caused him.
Something is not kosher with the story.

I've read a few stories about this, and I have to say it's a bit strange. Could it be that this guy knew too much and was about to spill the beans on something that should not be known. According to an NYT story, the FBI evidence is circumstantial, not to mention that this investigation is seven years old.

He was the Lone Anthraxer. Nothing to see here, move along, tin foil hatters. The case is closed. God Bless America.

The first guy the FBI tried in the press was named Hatfill, not Hatfield. He got a $5.8 million dollar settlement from the Feds.

On TV, the cops are honest and brilliant, or at least the forensic people are, except on the best TV cop show ever, The Wire. In real life, it sure looks like a whole lot of C students plodding through, with the extra political ass covering thrown in just to add to the believability.

coming from a government who plants news stories in a compliant press; a government that stages photo ops; a government who lies about reasons to go to war and pretty much signs anything they want into binding law; and a government who wants to dress up americans as iranians in order to invade another sovereign nation- yep. stinks to high heaven. that man was most likely 110% innocent and murdered. shades of the dc madam come to mind- oh and that gentleman over in britain, and ......

Last night Keith Olbermann interviewed Gerald Posner about this case. It's really even more interesting and whacky than I had suspected. You can watch the interview online here.

i've been toying with the idea of printing the lyrics to wainwright's dead skunk and embedding links to the scandals and carnage of the bush administration in them. . .

got your dead cat
got your dead dog
on a moonlit night you got your dead toad frog
got your dead rabbit
and your dead raccoon
the blood and the guts
enough to make you swoon

you gotta dead skunk in the middle of the road (3X)
and it's stinking to
high
heaven

What a pleasure to visit Morning Martini straight off our baby blog, BackChannel. Thanks for participating, Patricia!

Put up some links to local stories about the Ivins case on BackChannel today.

He might be the anthrax mailer, and there might be more to this story too.

I think it's curious how these strange bits and pieces of odd info about him are now coming out. Keith Olbermann and Gerald Posner discussed it last night. Ivin's therapist seems a bit dubious.

On a completely unrelated note, it looks like Fred is now famous:

PoP, I think the Ivins affair has all the markings of another Watergate. Circumstances are quite different, of course, but the idea of following the thread back to where it started might find some interesting characters, including some in the WH.

He might have gone nuts but I am sure the Government drove the loyal quiet man there. I think some people from the dark recesses under orders from Cheney approached this guy to get some anthrax. They then sent those anthrax letters to Daschle, Leahy, and Tom Brokaw hoping it would create a panic and the atmosphere to pass The (anti)Patriot Act. It worked.

Cheney likes to spend time in the shadows. This whole thing reeks of him. Cheney's latest plan is to dress Navy Seal up like Iranians and attack U.S. targets to justify attacking Iran.
They will not relent and if stealing a third election by scumming McCain in looks in jeopardy look for any number of distasteful scenarios to occur this fall. The right will not stop this agenda no. It is too far along and the abusive power gained can not be allowed in Dem hands!
This is just one more set up in the lie we are living today and iIkeep saying it but the worst is yet to come!

Here very late... I started going to the gym in the morning this week and it has thrown my blogging off.

Good post and yes- fishy.

Hi POP, just catching up on my blog reading and have read your last several posts. First, congratulations to Fred for being registered - and brushed. Baxter sends his regards.

Second, about the anthrax guy - more and more keeps coming out about the guy and it gets curiouser and curiouser to me why he ever had access to this stuff in the first place if he was this weird. They are making him sound like the Una-Bomber. But to your point, the whole thing is fishy.
