Steven Hatfill was blamed for the 2001 Anthrax attacks by the FBI, but cleared his name. In 1998 he wrote a novel depicting a biological terrorist attack that had resemblance with the 2001 attacks; this among other things brought him on the FBI list.[1] The American Prospect in a June 2002 investigation pointed out, that from 1975 to 1978 he was employed at the same time by the "U.S. Army Institute for Military Assistance, based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, while simultaneously ... serving in the Special Air Squadron (SAS) of the white supremacist regime in Rhodesia". Afterwards "he attended medical school in Rhodesia from 1978 to 1984".[2] This was in a certain time frame when the country had a multitude of anthrax outbreaks which produced the largest number of human anthrax cases in one disease outbreak ever reported in the world at the time, coinciding with a civil war, that left areas inhibited by the white population unscathed, leading to substantiated speculation that this was a targeted biological weapons attack.
