Professor and Law Expert Warns Of Police State
Francis A Boyle says 9/11 was allowed
to happen, war on terror is facilitating the downfall of The Republic,
concentration camps are in place and US citizens are the targets

Alex Jones was joined on air this week by a leading
American professor, practitioner of and expert on international
law to discuss his detailed knowledge of the cover up of the 2001
anthrax attacks, which he is adamant were perpetrated by criminal
elements of the US government in an attempt to foment a police
state by killing off opposition to hardline post 9/11 legislation.
Dr Franics A. Boyle literally helped write the law
with regards to terrorism, as he was responsible for drafting
the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 that was passed
unanimously by both Houses of Congress and signed into law by
President Bush Snr.
Professor Boyle teaches international law at the
University of Illinois, Champaign. He holds a Doctor of Law Magna
Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both from Harvard
University. He has also served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty
International (1988-1992), and represented Bosnia- Herzegovina
at the World Court.
The professor started off by explaining the motivation
behind the October 2001 anthrax attacks:
"After the September 11th 2001 Terrorist attacks,
the Bush administration tried to ram the USA PATRIOT Act through
Congress, that would have, if already had not, set up a police
state. And we know for a fact that the PATRIOT Act had already
been drafted and was sitting on Ashcroft's desk as of September
Senators Daschle and Leahy were holding it up because they
realised what this would lead to, indeed the first draft of
the Patriot Act, they would have suspended the writ of habeas
corpus. And all of a sudden out of nowhere come these anthrax
attacks. And at the time I myself did not know precisely what
was going on, either with respect to September 11th or the anthrax
attacks, but then the New York Times revealed that the technology
behind the letter to Senator Daschle. A trillion spores per
gram, special electro-static treatment.
This is super-weapons grade Anthrax that even
the United States government, in its openly proclaimed programs,
and we had one before Nixon, had never developed before. So it
was obvious to me that this was from a US Government lab, there
is no where else you could have gotten that."
Dr Boyle proceeded to call a very high level official
in the FBI who deals with terrorism and counter-terrorism, Spike
Bowman, whom he had met at a terrorism conference at the University
of Michigan Law School.
He told Bowman that the only people that would have
the capability to carry out the attacks were people working on
US government programs on Anthrax and with access to high level
a bio-safety lab. Dr Boyle went through all the names, the contractors
and the labs for Anthrax work with the FBI's Bowman.
Bowman then informed Dr Boyle that the FBI was working
with Fort Detrick on the matter, to which he responded that Fort
Detrick could really be the main problem.
It was documented at the time that the anthrax
strain used was military grade. This was widely reported in 2002
in publications such as the New
"Soon after I had informed Bowman of this information,
the FBI authorised the destruction of the AMES cultural Anthrax
database." The Professor continued.
The destruction of the anthrax culture collection
at Ames, IA., from which the Ft. Detrick lab got its pathogens,
was blatant destruction of evidence as it meant that there was
no way of finding out which strain was sent to who to develop
the larger breed of anthrax used in the attacks. The trail of
genetic evidence would have led directly back to a secret but
officially-sponsored US government biowarfare program that was
illegal and criminal.
"Clearly for the FBI to have authorised
this was obstruction of justice, a federal crime. That collection
should have been preserved and protected as evidence. That's the
DNA, the fingerprints right there. It later came out of course
that this was AMES strain anthrax that was behind the Daschle
and Leahy letter."
At that point Boyle says it became very clear to
him that there was a cover up in operation by the FBI. He points
out that later on on reading one of David Ray Griffin's books
on the 9/11 attacks, he discovered that Agent Bowman was the same
FBI agent who sabotaged the FISA warrant for access to Zacarious
Moussaoui's computer, which contained information that could have
facilitated the prevention of the attacks on the World Trade Center
and the Pentagon.

Later on Bowman was promoted and given a decoration,
presumably because he did such a fine job on Moussaoui's computer
and also on the anthrax.
So it was to be that the patriot act was rammed
through, because the opposition from Leahy and Daschle, whom they
had tried to kill, disappeared. Congress and even the House itself
officially shut down for the first time in the history of the
Republic. The Senate refused to shut down. Dr Boyle commented
that he believes this to be one of the biggest political crimes
in the history of America.
The professor agreed that actions such as this and
legislation such as the Patriot act and the new Military Commissions
act are the precursors to a military dictatorship.
"And remember that the first draft of the Patriot
act that sat on Ashcroft's desk before 9/11, and also remember
that Ashcroft was flying around in a private jet because he
was told that there was going to be a terrorist attack with
airplanes, so all this had been planned.
They were going to move to suspend the writ of habeas corpus,
which is all that really separates us from a police state. And
that is what they have done now with respect to enemy combatants."
With regards to 9/11 itself the professor asserted
that it is clear Bush, Rice, Tennet, Ashcroft and other Bush Administration
officials all knew a terrorist attack was coming and that the
attacks were at the very least allowed to go ahead.
"They let it happen because they wanted a war and
they wanted a police state, all the elements for a war against
Afghanistan were there in place, even the military force in
the gulf were there on the scene, there were massive military
forces in the gulf, in the Atlantic, in the Mediterranean, in
the Arabian Ocean before September 11th poised for an attack,
whether it was going to be Afghanistan or Iraq would be decided
by Bush and the rest of them."
The professor pointed out that it is now being argued
by lawmakers that the 14th amendment does not mean what it has
been taken to mean and that under the Military Commissions Act
any US citizen can be stripped of their citizenship and thus be
labeled an enemy combatant.
"So in other words they are taken the position that
in some point in time if they want to, they can unilaterally
round up United States native born citizens, as they did for
Japanese Americans in World War Two, and stick us into concentration
camps. That is correct. They haven't actually yet done it but
my guess is that the papers have been drawn up... and we know
that the FEMA camps are out there.
So it's clear that the Bush people, I guess they are waiting
for some other terrorist attack, another anthrax attack, who
knows what, and then they will proceed to invoke these emergency
Dr Boyle believes that the domestic police state
is a seen as a must by the neoconservatives who are pushing for
dominance in the middle east in order to quell dissent from an
American public who, the informed majority of, clearly will not
stand for such aggression in their names.
The professor then went on to talk about the sickness
of the neoconservative sympathizers who are pushing for the practice
of torture to be made legal. Legislators such as John Yu and Professor
Goldsmith of Harvard Law School. Dr Boyle believes that there
is a move afoot to infiltrate both the legal profession and legal
education with opinion and legislature that subverts long established
US law. His warning is stark:
"The Nazis did the exact same thing too.
They had their lawyers infiltrating law schools. Carl Schmidt
was the worst and he was the mentor to Leo Strauss, the founder
of the neoconservatives. So the same phenomena that started out
in Nazi Germany is happening here and I exaggerate not... we could
all be tortured, we could all be treated this way."
Dr Boyle stressed that in order to seek justice
over the anthrax attacks it is vital to keep the pressure on Senator
Leahy who will apparently be becoming the chair of the Senate
Judiciary Committee. Leahy will have subpoena power and investigative
power, and if anyone would have motivation to try to get to the
bottom of the attacks, it would be him.
Dr Boyle ended by urging readers and listeners to
become informed and spread this information. He also admitted
that in the Summer of 2004 he was interrogated by an agent with
the CIA/FBI joint terrorism task force. The agent tried to recruit
Dr Boyle as an informant to provide the FBI with information on
his Arab and Muslim clients. When he refused the FBI placed him
on all of the government's terrorism watch lists and he now finds
it very difficult to travel in and out of the US.
