The 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 Iraq. 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 ...more

The author makes a good case for a domestic conspiracy, with the likely cooperation of foreign (Israeli and other) actors. I read this book because I recently came across interesting connections between Donald Trump, David Pecker, AMI, anthrax, and Rudy Giuliani. Trump is old friends with Pecker and Giuliani.

A first-rate account of an episode that has nearly disappeared down America's collective memory hole. Some of us clearly remember the attempt to link Iraq and Al Qaeda to the anthrax attacks, the peculiarity of targeting two key Democratic Senators (who had the motive to do that?), using it to push through the PATRIOT Act, the encouragement of many outside the government (the corporate media, national security 'experts,' etc) to ratchet up the fear among the American people. MacQueen's book is s ...more

Well researched compilation of evidence and pointing out many inconsistencies with the publicly-accepted storyline of events leading up to and following 9/11.

I prefer to distance myself from conspiratorial ways of thinking, but this was a worthwhile read. I wouldn't say it provided answers, however—simply raised more questions. However, this still makes it a worthwhile endeavor.
★
Very well argued book on events that have been effectively swept down the "memory hole," out of public consciousness, after presumably having mostly served their function well. With the exception of chapters 7-9, where it becomes somewhat more disorganized, and necessarily speculative, this is very good, and filled with hundreds of citations from mainstream outlets, like contemporaneous articles in the Washington Post and The Guardian, as well as FBI and other publicly available official documen ...more

Excellent book all around. Clearly and concisely argued. His conclusions arrive seemingly inescapably. Highly recommended.
