I agree that there is little point in discussing it further, but I would just mention one fact: anthrax is very difficult and unusual to produce and even needs boosters to keep it alive. According to the FBI that means that they have been able to trace it without any possibility of doubt. It is even more accurate than a DNA test.

you have my sympathy because I - as I expect you were - was brought up with the notion of "my country right or wrong", and treachery is a rough learning curve for anyone.

like you, if I was younger I would have been called up very early on.

like you, I would find it very diffiult, perhaps impossible, to have believed that there was something wrong on my side.

I do not pretend to have absolute answers on this, but I am highly experienced at assessing information sources - and therefore I deal in facts, not rumours or conspiracy theories.

within both the US and UK governments there is a danger for the ordinary individuals and freedoms of those nations - and it has nothing to do with terrorism. The professional - the independent person with an understanding of obligations - is for some reason seen as threatening to them.

The British Treasury produced a document that was truly alarming a few years ago - they wished to undo, to destroy the client-consultant relationship within the whole of public construction procurement. The professional was to become a labour-only subcontractor. (This is not design and build or construction management, but an emasculating of the independence and importance of the professional's role).
