Does Anyone Remember Anthrax?

Something missing from this article...

WASHINGTON -- A top U.S. biodefense researcher apparently committed suicide just as the Justice Department was about to file criminal charges against him in the anthrax mailings that traumatized the nation in the weeks following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a published report.

what is it... um... ah, right.

Still unlikely to have been this I suppose.

A second test of the anthrax-laced letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle points to the presence of a troubling chemical additive, sources tell ABCNEWS.

Four well-placed and separate sources told ABCNEWS that initial tests detected bentonite, though the White House initially said the chemical was not found.


As far as is known, only one country, Iraq, has used bentonite to produce biological weapons, but officials caution that the presence of the chemical alone does not constitute firm evidence of Iraqi involvement.

Funny reading that article now. Less than a month after 9/11 they were pinning anthrax on Iraq, and in the middle of that article there's a link to another article pushing the Iraq/9/11 connection. One reason idiots like me opposed the war is that we noticed this horseshit in real time.
