Signs of Anthrax Found at Pentagon

WASHINGTON - Sensors at two military mail facilities in the Washington
area detected signs of anthrax on two pieces of mail Monday, but
Pentagon officials said the mail had already been irradiated, rendering any
anthrax inert.

Officials weren't sure if this was an attack. Additional tests and other
sensors at the two facilities, one of them at the Pentagon and the other
nearby, found no presence of the bacteria, which can be used as a
biological weapon. There were no initial reports of illness.

The Pentagon's mail delivery site, which is separate from the mai
n Pentagon building, was evacuated and shut down Monday after sensors
triggered an alarm around 10:30 a.m. EST, spokesman Glenn Flood said. It
was expected to remain closed until at least Tuesday while the
investigation continued.

It was not clear when sensors at the second Defense Department
mailroom were triggered Monday, and Pentagon officials only said a nearby
satellite mail facility was closed. But firefighters in nearby Bailey's
Crossroads, Va., reported that a military mailroom had been shut down
after a hazardous material was detected, and no one was allowed to leave
that building.

Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Jane Campbell said mail at both facilities were irradiated before arriving at either one. The radiation treatment would kill any anthrax bacteria, but sensors would still be able to detect it.



It's just a matter of time until bio-terrorism comes full tilt to America. Our open society is so vulnerable. But that's what we all love about America, isn't it?

A side note -
I wonder where Steven Hatfill is. Is he still being watched?
I found it interesting that the anthrax attacks stopped as soon as they were watching him. If they stopped watching him, and the anthrax has begun again, that makes me suspect him all the more.

Okay. I looked and I didn't see it. Perhaps I missed it?
Anyways ... I still do wonder ... where is Steven Hatfill these days?
