Chief suspect in US anthrax attacks, Bruce Ivins, found dead

A top government scientist who helped to investigate America's deadly 2001 anthrax attacks has killed himself just as he was about to be charged in the case, in an extraordinary and unexpected twist to the biggest criminal investigation in US history.

Bruce Ivins, 62, who had worked for 18 years at the US Government's biodefence research laboratory in Fort Detrick, Maryland, died from an overdose of painkillers after being told that the Justice Department was about to charge him over the attacks, which brought fresh terror to the US days after the September 11 atrocity.

The death of Dr Ivins may put an end to one of the most baffling criminal investigations of modern times: the posting of weapons-grade anthrax spores in September and October 2001 that killed five people, sickened 17, closed Capitol Hill and crippled the US Postal Service.

Yet again the good old BBC step up their propaganda effort and REFUSE to say why Bruce Ivins was being charged. This is the exact text on the BBC webpage.

"A top US scientist suspected of anthrax attacks in 2001 has apparently killed himself just as he was about to be charged, a newspaper reported"

This was an CIA job. Dr. Ivins was clearly murdered.

There coverage of the suicide death of Bruce Ivins, a microbiologist at the government's bio-defence laboratory in Maryland to avoid arrest in the notorious Anthrax case is notably dispassionate. It serves as a stark contrast with the frenzied reports by sections of the media dubbing the biological agent to be the work of some sinister men in the Iraqi deserts and Afghan mountain caves and collaborators on the shores of the Aral Sea.

Would the BBC now ask Tom Mangold to trace back his footsteps to the origin of this mischief?
