Obama may use veto power to obstruct investigation 2001 anthrax mailings

In 2001, certain non-compliant members of congress were targeted by a weaponized form of Anthrax known as the “Ames Strain,” in a very specific powdered and charged form, increasing its effect by becoming airborne and easily inhaled.

Government investigators initially reported this to be the work of extremists, but how could they have access to such a specific type of anthrax that is only supposed to be accessible in secret bioweapons facilities?

Bloomberg reports:

Government “President Barack Obama probably would veto legislation authorizing the next budget for U.S. intelligence agencies if it calls for a new investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks, an administration official said.”

A proposed probe by the intelligence agencies’ inspector general “would undermine public confidence” in an FBI probe of the attacks “and unfairly cast doubt on its conclusions,” Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote in a letter to leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence committees.

Well duh, we can’t have the government investigating its own false flag attacks now, can we?
