I saw that-  horrible.  Hard to imagine the kind of mind that would knowingly send deadly poison through the mail.  Evil.

The last time people sent poisons through the mail I don't think they were ever caught..I can't recall the name that was sent last time. I believe it came from cattle...I can't remember

WASHINGTON — More than eight years after anthrax-laced letters killed five people and terrorized the country, the F.B.I. on Friday closed its investigation, adding eerie new details to its case that the 2001 attacks were carried out by Bruce E. Ivins, an Army biodefense expert who killed himself in 2008.Feb 19, 2010

I hope the Gov is more careful about who they accuse, this time. I can recall they decided  Steven Hatfill  was the culprit, and he was harassed terribly.  I want them to find the person responsible ,but ,I don't want to see an innocent persons life turned upside down ,over  something they didn't even do

Ivins worked at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md., and lived on a street very near the Army installation. We had a family friend on that street, just to add a dash of six degrees of separation to this.  If I recall correctly, he obtained his poison from Detrick.

NBC news is now reporting that the ricin package sent to the Pentagon is believed by authorities to be part of a series of suspicious mail delivered within the last few days to Secretary Mattis, the President, and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.  Two people exposed to the substance in the Cruz mailing have been hospitalized.

 

All the packages are believed to have been sent by the same person.
