The Late Dr. Bruce Ivins' Government Colleague Blames The FBI's Hounding Of Ivins For His Untimely Death -- COINTELPRO Claims Another Human Life

*Note that since a colleague of Dr. Bruce Ivin's went on The Today Show with host Meredith Vieira, in order to defend him, the FBI is now waging an aggressive media campaign in which to demonize the late Dr. Ivins, through one of the Bureau's typical smear campaigns. I would not be at all surprised to see the FBI attacking this colleague (Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Russell Byrne) next.

Dr. Bruce Ivins -- A Casualty Of COINTELPRO

I found the following article both timely and necessary regarding the FBI's attack on Dr. Bruce Ivins. There is little question that the FBI was responsible for his death. However, was Ivins really driven to suicide, or did the FBI murder him in order to cover up a government conspiracy in which the Anthrax mailings were orchestrated, as part of the same terrorist campaign perpetrated by those within this government who gave us the attacks on 9-11?

Given Dr. Russell Byrne's public and courageous defense of the late Dr. Ivins, I would not at all be surprised to see the FBI find some angle in which to attack him for his candor and just criticism of this Nazi anathema to freedom, which passes itself off as a legitimate law enforcement agency. The FBI is a bad seed.

“One of my friends who worked with him said he would sit at his desk and weep. He really couldn’t do his work anymore. The pressure was tremendous.”

Anthrax suspect’s colleague blames FBI for suicide
He calls motives ascribed to Bruce Ivins in mailings that killed 5 ‘ridiculous’

After the suicide last week of Bruce Ivins, the FBI’s prime suspect in the 2001 anthrax mailings that killed five people and had a nation fearing to open its mail, a friend and former colleague of the microbiologist says federal investigators were going after the wrong person and that it was their pressure on Ivins that led to his demise at his own hands.

“It’s possible somebody could hide that from all of your co-workers and nobody would ever hear about it,” Dr. Russell Byrne acknowledged to TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira on Monday. “But I really, really doubt it.”

Byrne, an infectious-disease specialist who worked as a research scientist at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases from 1993 to 2000, described himself as a friend of Ivins for 15 years. They attended the same Roman Catholic church in Frederick, Md., where Ivins was a member of the church band. After viewing a pre-interview report about the FBI’s investigation of Ivins, Byrne appeared so visibly shaken that Vieira commented on it.
