I read that there wont be any federal investigation. Can you imagine?
The mayor of Ft. Lauderdale received an envelope of the powder and apparently the other 4 were sent to mayors as well.

WASHINGTON -- A suspicious envelope at the FBI headquarters building turned out to be harmless, officials said on Thursday.
This is the second incident in the District in two days at a federal building.
There was an incident at the Ronald Reagan Building on Wednesday when the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office received a suspicious letter that, officials said, had the word "anthrax" written on the outside.

Didn't the first attacks get traced to a American Military Complex? Then dropped from the news? That's what I thought anyway.
The cities that received the envelopes include Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Davie, Weston, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Tamarac, Sea Ranch Lakes, Oakland Park, Sunrise, Lauderdale Lakes. There may be others.

Now if we still had the Padilla Case going on in Florida, I would think Al-Qaeda is trying to scare, disrupt the trial...
