Impending Police State in America

Interview with Professor Francis Boyle

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


12/23/06 "CRG" --- - 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 

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 10th.

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 

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 Scientist.

"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 

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 

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 

"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 orders."

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.
