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.
