THE ANTHRAX SCARE IS UNCOVERED

   From Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, Prepared for Broadcast on "Inside
   Out," Hosted by Michael Levine on KRLA radio in Los Angeles

   December 17, 2001.

   Dear FBI Director Robert Mueller,

   We call your attention to a (Dec. 16, 2001) article in The
   Washington Post by authors Rick Weiss and Susan Schmidt entitled
   "Capitol Hill Anthrax Matches Army´s Stocks: 5 Labs Can Trace
   Spores to Ft. Detrick," in which a short list of chief suspects is
   provided? I am pleased to read these revelations, and wish to
   further facilitate your investigation toward a successful
   conclusion. As a Harvard-trained public health authority and
   independent investigator published in the field of using the FBI´s
   motivational model for investigating serial homicides involving
   infectious agents, I want you to know that on Monday December 10, I
   released a 20-page detailed report to the press, to members of
   Congress, and to your bureau chiefs, which has largely propelled
   these recent mainstream media identifications of the Battelle
   MemorialInstitute (BMI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
   as your principle suspects in the anthrax mailings mystery.

   Given this opportunity on Los Angeles radio, I would like to have
   you respond to the following facts, and question, "Why should the
   people of the United States trust you and the FBI to fulfill your
   expressed mission to solve this case when:

   1) On October 1, 2001, approximately two weeks prior to the first
   publicized anthrax mailing, I delivered information to the FBI that
   should have prompted an immediate investigation of affiliated
   military-industrial and pharmaceutical contractors that maintain
   intimate ties to BMI and the CIA--information and an investigation
   that might have prevented the mailings sent more than a week later
   from Trenton, NJ. In fact, as evidenced by Sunday´s report in the
   Washington Post, this information still appears to be actively
   suppressed, namely, the most obvious motives behind the mailed
   anthrax was to fan fears, dramatically expand pharmaceutical
   industry profits, and meet military-industrialists´ and political
   objectives grossly jeopardizing American freedoms and civil rights.
 

   2) Here are the incriminating facts Mr Mueller: The Battelle
   Memorial Institute administers and supplies the Dugway anthrax
   proving facility in Utah where the only virtually identical Ames
   strain of silica-impregnated hyper-weaponized anthrax was found.
   According to Sunday´s Washington Post, "Dugway is the only facility
   known in recent years to have processed anthrax spores into the
   powdery form that is most easily inhaled. Dugway´s military supply
   is allegedly well protected by "multiple security measures,"
   (according to Scott Shane reporting in the Baltimore Sun, Dec.12,
   2001). BMI´s security is apparently not as strict.

   3) The Battelle Memorial Institute, (according to William Broad and
   Judith Miller in the New York Times, Thursday, Dec.13) provides
   services as "a military contractor in [West Jefferson] Ohio," and
   "has experience making germs. .[T]he contractor participated in a
   secret Central Intelligence Agency program, code-named Clear Vision
   [that] began in 1997, that used [allegedly] benign substances
   similar to anthrax.

   4) BMI directs the Defense Department´s "Joint Vaccine Acquisition
   Program" worth more than $1 billion in vaccine contracts; an
   acquisition program in which Battelle, as a CIA contractor,
   partnered with Bioport for America´s sole anthrax vaccine
   production.

   Bioport-largely owned by Britain´s top secret biowarfare consortium
   Porton Down, bin Laden family associate Faud El Hibri, Admiral
   William J. Crowe, Jr., a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
   Staff, and others (including, according to some investigators, the
   multinational investment firm and defense contractor, the Carlyle
   Management Group, that managed bin Laden family millions prior to
   9-11, directed by past CIA director Frank Carlucci, James Baker,
   III, and Past President George H.W. Bush); a vaccine maker that has
   negotiated a steady stream of controversy and illegalities since
   1996, the year before the CIA contracted with Battelle to conduct a
   special study of aerosolized hyper-weaponized anthrax.

   5) Based on a September 7, 2001 Associated Press report, a "new
   strain" of extremely lethal anthrax had been under development
   before September 2001, by a U.S. biological weapons contractor,
   apparently Battelle Memorial Institute in West Jefferson, Ohio, as
   this fit the Intelligence published by the New York Times (wherein
   America´s top anthrax expert, William C. Patrick III, said "the
   American program had achieved [an unprecedented] concentration of
   one trillion spores per gram." According to the Associated Press, a
   Russian munitions expert, Alexander Gorbovsky, voiced his
   government´s concerns regarding the increased threat posed by this
   obviously active U.S. biological weapons program -- a program that
   an anonymous Pentagon official referred to as "Project Jefferson,"
   Implicating Battelle´s West Jefferson labs once again.

   6) "Project Jefferson" was ongoing around the same time American
   anthrax ace William C. Patrick III was apparently contracted by
   Battelle Memorial Institute to develop a report on the
   ramifications of mailing powdered anthrax, much the same as what
   occurred in the wake of the October anthrax mailings.

   7) According to a 1998 New Yorker article written by admitted CIA
   consultant and exposed CIA propagandist Richard Preston, William C.
   Patrick III and Russian defector Kanatjan Alibekov (alias, "Ken
   Alibek") --the world´s Two leading experts -- were very "close
   friends!" Both men held classified consulting contracts with the
   CIA and Battelle, Alibekov was on the CIA´s payroll at that time,
   according to Preston, and he was fully employed by the Battelle
   Memorial Institute (BMI).

   8) BMI, according to its website
   http://www.battelle.org/natsecurity/default.stm is a virtual
   one-stop-shopping-center for U.S. and foreign militaries, the
   Department of Energy, the national security industries, affiliated
   agencies, organizations, and institutions evaluating every major
   aspect of modern methods of population and environmental control
   and warfare. With nearly $1 billion of business volume annually,
   Battelle´s 7,500 scientists, engineers, and support specialists
   have designed and developed a wide variety of innovations from the
   uranium used in the top secret "Manhattan Project" of WWII to the
   Xerox copying process.

   In addition to their voluminous research, development, and testing
   activities, this private institute co-manages America´s most secret
   enterprises including the DoE´s Brookhaven National Laboratory,
   National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Oak Ridge Laboratory, and
   fully manages several others including the Pacific Northwest
   National Laboratory, and Dugway´s "Life Sciences" facility which is
   intimately tied to their two biological level-3 "Aerosol
   Engineering & Biological Sciences Facilities" in West Jefferson,
   Ohio. (These appear in photographs on a Federal Emergency
   Management Agency (FEMA) promotions slide at
   http://www.nrel.gov/surviving_disaster/fema2000/Cbiac/sld016.htm

   9) Battelle´s "Aerosol Engineering and Biological Defense Science"
   description relays that their "Aerosol Science and Technology
   (AS&T) group develops lab experimental and test procedures for
   point-source emissions and the transport and atmospheric fate of
   aerosols by means of modeling and field assessments for industrial
   process."

   Thus, the government "contractor" for whom anthrax expert William
   C. Patrick III wrote his mailed anthrax aerosol dispersal
   assessment could have only been Battelle for whom "Ken Alibek"
   worked; Robert Myers, Bioport´s Chief Operating Officer affiliated;
   and Jerry Hauer in New York´s emergency management helped
   facilitate tests. All of these suspects (except Alibek), played
   roles in the Department of Defense´s Joint Vaccine Acquisition
   Program that was accelerated for millions of dollars in biowarfare
   profiteering due to the anthrax mailings and national fright they
   caused.

   In summary, there are several serious indicators that the source of
   the anthrax weapon used in the mailings was the Ames, Iowa strain
   of silica-impregnated and electro-statically charged anthrax
   produced by the Battelle Memorial Institute under their classified
   Defense Department "Project Jefferson" and/or CIA project "Clear
   Vision." This hyper-weaponized germ was likely produced with the
   help (or under the direction) of Dr. Alibekov and/or Dr. Patrick.
   The fact that these Battelle agents and CIA-affiliated agencies
   gained notoriety, if not financially, as a result of the anthrax
   mailings and fright fits the parameters of organized conspiracy to
   commit military-industrial sabotage and serial homicide approaching
   economic genocide.

   FBI Director Mueller, this is my third communication to you since
   early October. "We the People" of the U.S want to know whether we
   can depend on you and your bureau officials to pay more than lip
   service to this critical investigation. We want to know whether
   your hands have been tied, or will be tied by U.S. National
   Security officials on behalf of implicated parties in the CIA and
   Bush administration--parties who have developed lucrative vaccine
   and drug contracts behind closed doors, illegally according to
   existing transparency laws, through vaccine representatives and
   profiteers in the organization known as PhRMA that directs, along
   with Bush administration officials, the Emergency Preparedness Task
   Force.

   "We the People" are tired of false assurances that "no stone is
   being left unturned" in the anthrax mailings investigation. Do you
   really have the courage and clout to pursue this investigation to
   where it obviously leads--to Battelle, Bioport, the CIA and even
   the White House? Or will you and your bureau leaders continue to
   sacrifice your integrity along with the lives, health, safety, and
   civil liberties of the American people to support this ongoing
   commercial cover-up and military-industrial conspiracy?

   Sincerely yours,
