The story can be followed here too:

A decade after wisps of anthrax sent through the mail killed 5 people, sickened 17 others and terrorized the nation, biologists and chemists still disagree on whether federal investigators got the right man and whether the F.B.I.’s long inquiry brushed aside important clues.

Now, three scientists argue that distinctive chemicals found in the dried anthrax spores — including the unexpected presence of tin — point to a high degree of manufacturing skill, contrary to federal reassurances that the attack germs were unsophisticated. The scientists make their case in a coming issue of the Journal of Bioterrorism & Biodefense.

This is from the reader's comments.

This is a good argument for a more open government. Secret chemical and biological WMD, developed by our own military, and apparently used to kill Americans. This is what we've become? Next thing you know we'll find out that our government carries out secret assassinations, drops bombs on sovereign countries, secretly funds death squads and brutal dictators, and performs medical experiments on the peasant populations of other countries

The whole 'anthrax conspiracy' does throw up many 'why' questions.
