2001 anthrax letter attacks in the United States killed five people
and wounded dozens. They were widely blamed on extremist Muslims and
their backers and used to support the invasions of Afghanistan and
They were also used to justify and hasten the passage of the USA
PATRIOT Act, which was being presented to Congress just as the first
anthrax victim grew ill.
In October 2001, one of the hypotheses that gained ground was that
of the Double Perpetrator, the claim that al-Qaeda was carrying out
the attacks with the support of Iraq. Much evidence was put forth to
support this Double Perpetrator hypothesis but
independent scientists soon discovered that the anthrax spores came
from a domestic lab in the US serving the military and intelligence
communities, not from al-Qaeda or Iraq.
The FBI then quickly claimed that an individual was responsible for
the attacks and began noisily looking for this “lone wolf.” In 2008
the Bureau named Dr. Bruce Ivins of the US Army Medical Institute of
Infectious Disease as the “anthrax killer.” Although the FBI remains
committed to the Ivins hypothesis, the case has been disintegrating
for the last three years. Currently, it is justly held in contempt
not merely by scientists who worked with Ivins but by many
journalists as well as several US senators.
But this raises the question: if Ivins did not commit this crime,
This book presents evidence to support the following points:
(a) The anthrax attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators,
not by a “lone wolf.” The attacks were, therefore, the result of a
conspiracy—by definition a plan by two or more people, made in
secret and resulting in an immoral or illegal act.
(b) The group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in
part, of insiders deep within the US state apparatus.
These insiders were the same people who planned the 9/11 attacks
(d) The anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a
seizure of power by the executive branch
of government through intimidation of Congress and US civil society.
They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence to and
support for the redefinition of US foreign policy,
replacing the Cold War with
a new and aggressive global conflict framework,
the Global War on Terror.

"Professor MacQueen provides yet another piece of the puzzle
connecting the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to the
immediately following anthrax attacks of October 2001 that were
indisputably conducted by Agents of the United States government."
Francis A. Boyle, author of the U.S. domestic implementing
legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.
"Finally, a book has
come out that explodes the FBI's anthrax letters case. Not
only is there
no evidence linking Army scientist Bruce Ivins to the crime--it
turns out his famous flask of anthrax was never proven to be related
to the attack spores! MacQueen peeks behind the curtain, showing
that nothing about the anthrax letters case is as it seems."
Meryl Nass, MD, consultant on the
prevention and mitigation of bioterrorism for
the Director of National Intelligence and the World Bank
provides abundant evidence that the anthrax attacks and the 9/11
attacks, both of which scared the American people into war, were
carried out by the same people – people highly placed in the U.S.
David Ray Griffin, author of
The New Pearl Harbor Revisited
and numerous books on the 9/11 attacks
"MacQueen's book is a
combination of hard reporting and exploring implications of the
reporting. It is not a theory. It advances our factual knowledge.
It provides more erosion of the official story."
Paul Craig Roberts, Former Asst. Sect, US Treasury
The 2001 Anthrax Deception,
Dr. MacQueen uncovers the multiple ways Americans were manipulated
to believe in their aftermath that the 9-11 attacks and the anthrax
attacks were a one-two punch delivered by Muslim terrorists with
Iraqi support. Later, when the fact could not be denied that the
source of the anthrax attacks was an American military biolab, all
the elaborate claims and stories about the connections between 9-11
and anthrax disappeared. Dr. MacQueen shows that indeed 9-11 and
anthrax were connected, and that the false-flag, inside job
characteristic that inexorably became part of the official version
of the anthrax attacks must also apply to 9-11."
