September 9, 2014 – Media Roots, an independent media project based in the Bay Area of Northern California, presents “American Anthrax,” a documentary providing a historical perspective on the Anthrax attacks that occurred shortly after 9/11. The short film is made up of news footage compiled, edited and published on Media Roots. It was first published in January 2014.
From the debut of the documentary:
Establishment propagandists like John [McCain] and ABC news reporters intentionally spread disinformation to plant the seed in the public mind that the anthrax came from Iraq, which eventually lead to Colin Powell’s infamous 2003 WMD (weapons of mass destruction) speech at the UN. All the while, the U.S. government was fully aware that the anthrax did not come from an external source, because the strain showed tell-tale signs of being a specific anthrax strain that was weaponized and manufactured by the U.S. military.
