That about wraps it up for the "false-flag" theorists

The "Amerithrax" killer has been found.

This comes with barely a squeak from, which simply posted someone else’s Blog entry about what happened and rehashed the same old silly questions about the White House distributing Cipro to its staffers on 9/11 – 9/11 deniers claim Cipro’s sole purpose is to fight anthrax, while it’s actually a regular antibiotic, and so on.

Bruce Ivins was a complicated and disturbed person who had both an obsessive personality and staunch conservative political views (many domestic terror incidents, from the OKC bombing to the biggest abortion clinic bombings, were spawned from a similarly toxic mix of obsession and ideology). Frankly, people looking for an anomaly in the pattern of violent behavior will not find one in Bruce Ivins – his personality fits the mold of about 90% of American domestic terrorists. Like the 9/11 hijackers themselves, he was highly intelligent, well-educated, but socially-inept, prone to spontaneous and alarming behavior, and one-track-minded. Much of the evidence in this case is forthcoming this weekend; the best coverage seems to be from MSNBC and NPR.

So far there has been a deafening silence from the false flag crowd. They’re the ones who tend to jump the gun about just about everything they can, but in this case their silence is speaking volumes. The belief was that “the government,” having orchestrated the attacks, would never seriously search for a guilty party. Of course, the investigation survived an overhaul and a changing of the guard at the FBI, so both directorates would’ve had to be “in on it,” and…oh, why even bother pointing out how stupid the conspiracies are at this point?

The writing is on the wall. This is a serious blow to a conspiracy movement that cannot tolerate any more serious blows. A goodly 20-25% of the traffic of argumentation on our awesome Facebook group at least peripherally involved this case. There is a mountain of evidence that all their bleeting was completely in vain. At the risk of stating the obvious, the 9/11 deniers have been proven completely wrong.
