Somehow you "We haven't been attacked since 9-11" people always seem to forget about those anthrax attacks....against democrats.....to push the patriot act...to remove your rights....to consolidate energy, and banks.....to power grab... anyone know what 2+2= ? Who is aboard the neopconservative lie machine still? Who still eats this sandwich? http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Seven_years_on_no_answer_from_0716.html It's been almost seven years since â€” in the weeks immediately following 9/11 â€” anthrax powder sent through the mail killed five people, threatened the lives of two Democratic senators, terrorized the entire nation, and helped prod a panicky Congress into passing the so-called Patriot Act. In the intervening years, not only has the killer remained free, but missteps in the investigation have had major negative consequences. Just last month, in fact, the Department of Justice agreed to pay $4.6 million to former bioweapons expert Stephen Hatfill to settle a lawsuit Hatfill brought against the Justice Department, the FBI, and former Attorney General John Ashcroft for destroying his reputation and career by publicly implicating him in the case. And Glenn Greenwald has pointed out that in 2001, ABC News was fed false information by several "well-placed sources" (presumably officials in the Bush administration) suggesting an Iraq-anthrax link. That imaginary link was widely cited by pro-war cheerleaders.
