THE BELMONT CLUB looks at the anthrax investigation. “But when the anthrax attack did come the remarkable thing was that it was never spun as a WMD attack on America, an assertion which in the heated atmosphere following the attacks, might actually have gained currency. Instead the FBI went almost direct to the ‘lone American’ theory rather than impute the attacks on al-Qaeda. If the Bush administration had in fact planned to use the anthrax attacks to frame someone, the ‘lone American’ theory was precisely the wrong way to go about it.”
