Three leading scientists, one a world authority on the composition of Anthrax,
have produced a paper that presents evidence
that directly calls into question the FBI’s version of events surrounding the 2001 anthrax mail attacks.
The paper by Coordinator of the World Health Organization (WHO) Working Group on Anthrax Research and Control,
Martin E. Hugh-Jones, biologist Barbara Hatch Rosenberg, and chemist Stuart Jacobsen
is to be published in the peer reviewed Journal of Bioterrorism & Biodefense.
“three scientists argue that distinctive chemicals found in the dried anthrax spores
— including the unexpected presence of tin
— point to a high degree of manufacturing skill,
contrary to federal reassurances that the attack germs were unsophisticated.”
reports the New York Times.
