U.S. to pay millions in lawsuit over anthrax innuendo

*The Anthrax "Ignorance"Most 9/11 researcher often ignore, that September 11th followed a very advanced timeline, but something also went wrong.It is now very clear, that a bio-nuclear threat WAS part of the original script of the September 11th attacks.Most possibly, a dirty bomb attack was put on hold, but an alleged "bio attack" took place.The drill for this scenario restarted at least on September 10th, was followed on September 11th, with an advise for the White House, to take Cipro and officially continued in New York, with the postponed bio drill "triPOD".What later became worldwide famous as the anthrax letters, was first professionally drilled in the June 2001 drill, "Dark Winter".Instead of Anthrax, Smallpox was the "pending threat".One of the co-organizer was ANSER Institute for Homeland Security.Few knew, that the "Homeland Security" did already exist 2 years before September 11th.Interestingly, the very same people, who later exploited the danger of "weapons of mass destruction", had been already part of the line-up of Dark Winter:R. James WoolseyJames Woolsey, former CIA director, former Titan Corporation (-> Project Trailblazer) and currently one of the board members of BoozAllen Hamilton.Woolsey is also one of the members of the neocon Project for New American Century (PNAC).In 2000, PNAC issued a report predicting that their proposed "transformation" of U.S. military and diplomatic policy in the Middle East wouldn't come very quickly, barring the occurrence of "some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor."9/11 was this "Pearl Harbour".Woolsey was also appointed as Fluor's board member in January 2004, while Fluor and a partner, AMEC Plc, were competing for two federal contracts to do reconstruction work in Iraq.
