I'm all for freedom of speech, but this is ridiculous, will someone please put this sonofabitch in jail? I'm also against book-burnings, but in his case I'd gladly make an exception. Timothy W. Tobiason, a hardcore anti-govt. type, has been selling (by his estimate) 2,000 copies a year of his book "Scientific Principles of Improvised Warfare and Home Defense Volume 6-1: Advanced Biological Weapons Design and Manufacture," a do-it-yourself book on making homegrown bioterror weapons (including anthrax) at gun shows around the country.
Says Ken Alibek, a former top official in the Soviet germ-weapons program who is now president of Advanced Biosystems, a consulting company in Manassas, Va., "The guy who wrote this is very smart, very dangerous, we should not ignore this. It's not sophisticated, but this process is going to work." Although not a suspect in the recent spate of anthrax mailings, Tobiason's tome does include a section about mailed anthrax as a weapon. Next year, the unapologetic (and thoroughly unbalanced, apparently) Tobiason promises a new book, one that will describe how to make "huge scale" germ weapons. "It will have some planet killers in it," claims the author. "It will allow anyone to arm themselves with biological weapons in their basements." This article will scare you. -Link-
