Law School Prof Supports LIHOP, Says Anthrax Attack by US Gov't
Alex Jones and 9-11 Blogger are promoting this, but it's really no big deal.
"After the September 11th 2001 Terrorist attacks, the Bush administration tried to ram the USA PATRIOT Act through Congress, that would have, if already had not, set up a police state. And we know for a fact that the PATRIOT Act had already been drafted and was sitting on Ashcroft's desk as of September 10th.
Senators Daschle and Leahy were holding it up because they realised what this would lead to, indeed the first draft of the Patriot Act, they would have suspended the writ of habeas corpus. And all of a sudden out of nowhere come these anthrax attacks. And at the time I myself did not know precisely what was going on, either with respect to September 11th or the anthrax attacks, but then the New York Times revealed that the technology behind the letter to Senator Daschle. A trillion spores per gram, special electro-static treatment.
This is super-weapons grade Anthrax that even the United States government, in its openly proclaimed programs, and we had one before Nixon, had never developed before. So it was obvious to me that this was from a US Government lab, there is no where else you could have gotten that."
The professor is Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois, but when we start looking him up, it becomes obvious that he's a Bush-Basher from way back, and this is just his latest line. For example, according to Jones' flunky Steve Watson, the prof claims:
At that point Boyle says it became very clear to him that there was a cover up in operation by the FBI. He points out that later on on reading one of David Ray Griffin's books on the 9/11 attacks, he discovered that Agent Bowman was the same FBI agent who sabotaged the FISA warrant for access to Zacarious Moussaoui's computer, which contained information that could have facilitated the prevention of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
It became very clear to him in 2002, but somehow he forgot to mention this in the impeachment resolution he drafted in 2003, which contains not a word about anthrax. He also wrote a book Destroying World Order that was published in 2005 or 2006, which is summarized here. Curiously, once again, this "very clear" argument about anthrax was once again not mentioned.
His Wikipedia bio mentions some of the charming folks he has worked for in the past:
From 1991 to 1993, Boyle was a legal advisor to the Palestine Liberation Organization. Boyle is currently attorney of record for the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and a member of the Nobel Peace Prize for Governor George H. Ryan Committee.
Professor Boyle is a controversial figure at the University of Illinois. He worked to prevent a war between the United States and Libya in the 1990s, and speaks fondly of his interactions with Muammar al-Qaddafi.
