Remember the postal anthrax attacks of 2001? The ones that killed 5 people. The ones that came with notes saying in broken English such things as 'DEATH TO AMERICA. DEATH TO ISRAEL. ALLAH IS GREAT'. I do. I was working in an office at the time and we were issued with gloves to open the mail, just in case Osama or Saddam or whoever was responsible sent some anthrax our way. Actually, it turns out if we had received some it wouldn't have come from the Middle East, it would have come from the United States Armies own bio weapons laboratory, that was the conclusion of the FBI investigation anyway.
In this lecture from the 9/11 Revisited Conference, peace activist Dr. Graeme MacQueen retells perhaps the strangest story from the 9/11 period, that of the anthrax attacks and how they were used to further demonise the Muslim world before eventually being blamed upon the archetypal lone American nut.
