Good book on Anthrax, its specs and parameters, and so forth. Given its early publication date, it pre-dates the "official" FBI closing the case on Bruce Ivins of Ft. Detrick, who had been tasked by his employer to help out and work with BioPort, who was designated as the provider of the Anthrax vaccine (Ivins was one of Ft. Detrick's Anthrax experts). What the authors of books supporting the FBI's indictment of Ivins don't say (Willman: "Mirage Man" - - Guillemin: "American Anthrax") is that the owner of BioPort was the El-Hibri family, through offshore entities, just as the El-Hibri family was half-owner of DynPort, the other half-owner was the private military contractor, DynCorp, which would shortly be purchased by Robert McKeon's PE firm, Veritas Capital, then eventually sold to CSC, and later McKeon would also commit "suicide" by strangling himself?). DynPort was situated right by Ft. Detrick and has the ovens required for weaponizing Anthrax. Motive should be El-Hibri, yet we never hear anything about them from the FBI? (see youtube vid at
