about that anthrax

I knew the FBI was still looking for whoever sent those anthrax-filled letters through the mail back in the fall of 2001, but I'm surprised to find out how WRONG the FBI has been about its assumptions. It was NOT "weaponized" so the universe of people competent to have created those letter bio-bombs is much larger. The strain of anthrax ("Ames") is NOT as limited in distribution as the FBI thought, again broadening the range of possible perps.

Not a very impressive performance by the FBI. I'll agree with Senator Grassley: "I'm concerned that the FBI may have spent too much time focusing [on] one theory of what happened and too little effort on the other possibilities."
