Evidence on Anthrax Case Questioned
 
WASHINGTON - August 4 - The New York Times today published a piece "Anthrax Evidence Called Mostly Circumstantial."


MERYL NASS, MD
A leading expert on anthrax, Nass knew the government scientist Bruce Ivins who died in an apparent suicide last week. She has a web page and blog.

Nass said today: "The Justice Department has failed to provide to the public any shred of evidence that really would link Ivins in any kind of definitive way to this crime. ...

"I absolutely cannot come up with a motive, with access and the complicated things that would need to be done if he were a loner doing such an act. And I am struck by the fact that there appears to have been at least two previous people who were pointed to who appear to have been patsies -- Steven Hatfill being one and Ayaad Assaad being another."
