Ed Lake's Prediction about the Closing of the FBI's Amerithrax (Anthrax Attack) Investigation
One of my favorite Internet sites is Ed Lake's blog Analyzing the Anthrax Attacks. Mr. Lake is a retired computer expert who tries to separate the facts from the conspiracy theories (scroll down) about the FBI's Amerithrax investigation.
Mr. Lake believes that the FBI's Amerithrax investigation has been solved and will soon be closed. According to the FBI (8-6-08), charges were about to be brought against anthrax researcher Dr. Bruce Ivins, but he took his own life before those charges could be filed.
Ed Lake had indications that there were "plans" to close the Amerithrax investigation by the end of January; but that has not happened, so here is his comment today in the "Thoughts and Comments" section (1-31-10):
January 31, 2010 - So, we're at "the end of January" and the Amerithrax case has not yet been officially closed. While I haven't heard anything at all from any sources, I have to assume that the official closing of the Amerithrax investigation, which I said was planned for "the end of January," was delayed by the sudden scheduling of the President's State of the Union address for Wednesday in the last week of January.
The President wouldn't want the impact of his State of the Union address to be diluted or sidetracked by some unrelated announcement from the DOJ, a department his Administrative Branch of the government. After all, the State of the Union Address isn't just a speech. It's a plan, an announcement of goals, a call to action. It's followed by meetings with members of congress, by discussions pundits on the weekend talk shows and by reviews and comments in the Sunday editions and in national magazines like Time and Newsweek, which go to press on the weekend for delivery on Monday. Closing the Amerithrax case in the middle of all that would be unthinkable. The idea is to get as many people as possible focused on helping to advance and improve The State of The Union. Discussions of other matters don't help.
I don't know if The National Geographic Channel had any inside information when they rescheduled a rerun of "Hunting the Anthrax Killer" from this the last weekend in January to next weekend, the first weekend in February, but there are certainly a lot of "vibes" indicating that could be the case.
I'm keeping my ear to the ground, with my fingers crossed while I wait for something to happen - hopefully very soon.
