A variety of disparate, yet connected, activities that serve to promote or strengthen prevention, response and remediation of CBW continued in 2010. In February the US Department of Justice closed the anthrax letter investigation, which began in October 2001 and was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and reiterated that Bruce E. Ivins was responsible for the letters and acted alone. Thus, the Department of Justice is no longer bound by some of its secrecy requirements and is free to release further information.83 The FBI posted more than 2700 pages of documentation about the case on the Internet, but it requested in December that the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) delay issuing its evaluation of the scientific basis of the bureau’s conclusions that Ivins acted alone in order to consider a further 500 pages of recently declassified material.84 The 15-member NAS panel agreed to delay its report in order to take this material into account.85
