Live Chat: Inside the FBI’s Anthrax Investigation

FRONTLINE, McClatchy and ProPublica have taken an in-depth look at the FBI’s case against Dr. Bruce Ivins, conducting dozens of interviews and reviewing more than 27,000 FBI documents. In the process, we uncovered new evidence that raises troubling questions about one of the largest and most expensive investigations in FBI history.

Ten years after the attacks, what evidence do we have to go on? And what have we learned about the FBI from their approach to the case?

We’ve asked three of the reporters on the project to join us for a live chat. Submit your questions in the chat box below anytime, and join us at 2pm ET.

Mike Wiser is a producer for FRONTLINE and the Kirk Documentary Group, where he’s worked on nearly 20 films since 2002 including The Warning, Death by Fire, and most recently, Top Secret America.

Stephen Engleberg has been managing editor of ProPublica since its founding in 2008. He has previously worked as managing editor of The Oregonian in Portland, Ore. and as a reporter and editor at New York Times , where he founded the paper’s investigative unit. He is the co-author of Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War (2001).

Greg Gordon is an investigative reporter for the Washington D.C. bureau of McClatchy newspapers. He’s been covering Washington for 33 years. Since joining McClatchy’s national staff in 2006, he has helped expose Wall Street’s role in the 2008 financial crisis, partisanship in the Justice Department and gaps in U.S. homeland security.
