According to Boyle, President Bush and former Attorney General Ashcroft used the anthrax attacks on Congress to stampede the American people and push the Congress into enacting into law the totalitarian USA PATRIOT Act with almost no congressional input whatsoever. Boyle believes that the FBI knows exactly who was behind the terrorist anthrax attacks upon the US Congress in the fall of 2001, and the culprits are US government related scientists involved in a criminal US government biowarfare program that violated both the BWC and US domestic legislation implementing the same.
As if this is not enough, he goes on to argues that the Bush Administration is gearing up to fight and win a conflict based on biowarfare. For example, the amounts of money being poured into the US biowarfare industry are staggering. Something is happening here. For fiscal years 2001 to 2004 the United States Government has funded a sum total of 14.5 billion for civilian biowarfare related research alone with an additional 7.6 billion requested for 2005.
Boyle ends by saying that we must defend ourselves against these irresponsible developments being forwarded by an administration which, simply put, does not care about the well being of the great masses of the American people, and this defense is impeachment. Given that Bush only has a short time remaining in office, it is highly unlikely that he will be impeached.
Biowarfare and Terrorism is an excellent jargon free book written with the general reading audience in mind. This book should raise public concern over the Bush administration's vastly expanded US biowarfare research and civilian preparedness programs.
