    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 October 2001, one of the hypotheses that gained ground was that of
    the Double Perpetrator, the claim that al-Qaeda was carrying out the
    attacks with the support of Iraq. Much evidence was put forth to support
    this Double Perpetrator hypothesis but independent scientists soon
    discovered that the anthrax spores came from a domestic lab in the US
    serving the military and intelligence communities, not from al-Qaeda or

    The FBI then quickly claimed that an individual was responsible for the
    attacks and began noisily looking for this “lone wolf.” In 2008 the Bureau
    named Dr. Bruce Ivins of the US Army Medical Institute of Infectious
    Disease as the “anthrax killer.” Although the FBI remains committed to
    the Ivins hypothesis, the case has been disintegrating for the last three
    years. Currently, it is justly held in contempt not merely by scientists who
    worked with Ivins but by many journalists as well as several US senators.
    But this raises the question: if Ivins did not commit this crime, who did?

    This book presents evidence to support the following points:
    (a) The anthrax attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators, not
    by a “lone wolf.” The attacks were, therefore, the result of a conspiracy—
    by definition a plan by two or more people, made in secret and resulting
    in an immoral or illegal act.

    (b) The group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in part, of
    insiders deep within the US state apparatus.

    (c) These insiders were the same people who planned the 9/11 attacks

    (d) The anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a seizure of power by the
    executive branch of government through intimidation of Congress and
    US civil society. They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence
    to and support for the redefinition of US foreign policy, replacing the Cold
    War with a new and aggressive global conflict framework, the Global War
    on Terror.

"This short but well-referenced book exposes an important part of
the 9/11 deception that helped change many people's view of the
world.  It encourages those who reject the basis of that aberration to
better equip ourselves to resist its continuing, murderous
Tom Easton, The Lobster

"Anyone concerned about the truth behind 9/11 and the anthrax
attacks should read this profoundly important book. It is filled with
tight argumentation backed by solid evidence, and even the
speculative parts ring true."
 Prof. Edward Curtin.  Read full review

"Professor MacQueen provides yet another piece of the puzzle
connecting the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to the immediately
following anthrax attacks of October 2001 that were indisputably
conducted by Agents of the United States government."
Francis A. Boyle, author of the U.S.domestic implementing legislation for
the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.

"Finally, a book has come out that explodes the FBI's anthrax letters
case.  Not only is there no evidence linking Army scientist Bruce Ivins to
the crime--it turns out his famous flask of anthrax was never proven to be
related to the attack spores!  MacQueen peeks behind the curtain,
showing that nothing about the anthrax letters case is as it seems."
Meryl Nass, MD, consultant on the prevention and mitigation of
bioterrorism for the Director of National Intelligence and the World Bank

“Graeme MacQueen provides abundant evidence that the anthrax attacks
and the 9/11 attacks, both of which scared the American people into war,
were carried out by the same people – people highly placed in the U.S.
– David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor Revisited and
numerous books on the 9/11 attacks

"MacQueen's book is a combination of hard reporting and exploring
implications of the reporting.  It is not a theory.  It advances our factual
knowledge.  It provides more erosion of the official story."
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Former Asst. Sect, US Treasury

"In The 2001 Anthrax Deception, Dr. MacQueen uncovers the multiple
ways Americans were manipulated to believe in their aftermath that the 9-
11 attacks and the anthrax attacks were a one-two punch delivered by
Muslim terrorists with Iraqi support. Later, when the fact could not be
denied that the source of the anthrax attacks was an American military
biolab, all the elaborate claims and stories about the connections
between 9-11 and anthrax disappeared. Dr. MacQueen shows that indeed
9-11 and anthrax were connected, and that the false-flag, inside job
characteristic that inexorably became part of the official version of the
anthrax attacks must also apply to 9-11."
Barry Kissin, American attorney and author of
The Truth About The Anthrax Attacks

"... bites through the “conspiracy theory" taboo to demonstrate in fine
detail the key administration and media accusations following one
propaganda scenario after another to deceive the public into panic and
war fever to frame al-Qaeda and enact its larger global domination
John McMurtry,
Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and University Professor (Emeritus)
The Cancer Stage of Capitalism / from Crisis to Cure (2013).

"Professor Graeme MacQueen has written a must-read book on the
anthrax attacks on America: The 2001 Anthrax Deception. Even those of
us who have paid close attention to – and written broadly on – the 2001
anthrax attacks will learn stunning new information."
Washington's Blog

"When I received The 2001 Anthrax Deception I immediately read it cover
to cover. I consider the topic to be urgently important, and MacQueen's
treatment of it  I consider excellent -- one of the most important and
persuasive 9/11 books I have read."
Peter Dale Scott, author of
The American Deep State

"Two of the six events that occurred on  9/11/2001 are especially
problematic:  the collapse of World Trade Center Building Seven and the
Anthrax episode. The perpetrators of the crimes of 9/11 made serious
mistakes or encountered unexpected obstacles to their plans for
Building Seven and the Anthrax attacks.  These produced glaring holes in
the official explanations for these events.  The absurdity of the NIST
explanation for the collapse of Building Seven-- office fires-- has been
well-researched and exposed as untenable by numerous respected
engineers and scientists.  But the anthrax attacks have gone relatively
unexamined up to this point.  Prof. Graeme MacQueen in his carefully
documented book,
The 2001 Anthrax Deception, has now filled this gap, .  
He makes a persuasive case that the official explanation and the
assignment of guilt are false and unsupported by the evidence.  The
question now is how long we will have to wait for an honest grand jury
investigation of the greatest crime in American history."

"This deeply troubling book should be read by all thinking Americans."
