The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks
Upon the United States reports that a Californian-trained
biologist named Sufaat in 2001 spent "several
months attempting to cultivate anthrax for al Qaeda
in a laboratory he helped set up" in Afghanistan
and that this same biologist provided housing for at
least two of the 9-11 hijackers in his Kuala Lumpur
condominium. Does the Commission connect this anthrax
project in 2001-- or the quartering of 9-11 hijackers
by the anthrax-scientist-- to the terrorist attacks
on America they investigated?
No, the Commission makes no connection between the 9-11
attacks and the multiple anthrax attackers that began
a week or so later. Indeed, the only mention of
anthrax is the reference to Sufaat on page. 168.
The Report does not even touch on other possible links
between anthrax and the 9-11 hijackers, such as an emergency
room doctor in Florida reporting to the FBI that he
had treated one of the hijackers for a black lesion
that resembled anthrax.
