MacQueen traces a clear line between the anthrax attacks, which served to divert the FBI's investigative resources from the 9/11 attacks to this matter, and 9/11 proper. In his study, he clears the convenient patsy, Dr Bruce Ivins. Other commentators have been prepared to accept Ivins' guilt, by virtue of weak circumstantial evidence and his (apparent) suicide. Ivins might have been a strange fish, but that doesn't of necessity make him the culprit. Indeed, the science tends to exonerate him.
MacQueen's chief contribution here is to demonstrate the intended connection between the anthrax attacks and the perpetrators of 9/11. Though the science necessitates a conclusion that the anthrax attacks were perpetrated by elements within the US military-security complex, the overt efforts to link the anthrax attacks to 9/11 and the Florida hijacker nexus, persuasively demonstrate that the two events are inextricably connected at the planning level.
MacQueen's work packs a great deal into a short compass. He writes, as always, with a lean style that has no padding, conveying the essence of his arguments with admirable academic rigor. Whether you accept his conclusions or not, this is a work that anyone interested in 9/11 should read and contemplate.

He makes a highly compelling case that these attacks could not have been the work of arab terrorists, but must have come from a US chemical weapons laboratory (he names the most likely lab), and that the notes, the Modus Operandi and the sequence of events all point to powerful insiders who were terrorising senators, the media and the greater public, into rushing into a war with Iraq.
It is very simply and persuasively written. The case seems really water-tight. It's full of surprises (stuff that you just would not know just from the media) and very interesting leaps of inference that show that it really is much more plausible that powerful American operatives got everything they wanted from these attacks, and that it would have been impossible for terrorists to follow the highly intricate sequence of events (including choice of targets), choice of messages, and even misspellings.
All in all, a very good read, and it's scandalous that a work of this quality, depth and integrity, is not reviewed in the mainstream press.
Die Erkenntnis, dass die 9/11 Anschläge und die Anthrax-Anschläge zweifelsohne in täterschaftlicher Verbindung stehen, die Anthrax-Anschläge jedoch hochwahrscheinlich einer amerikanischen geheimdienstlichen Operation zu zuordnen sind, wirft weitere Fragen auf, die jedoch an anderer Stelle geklärt werden müssen.
