Rep. Holt: Time to investigate anthrax attacks

Lingering mystery: Congressman calls for probe into 2001 anthrax attacks

More than seven years after the first bio-terror attack on the United States, Congress is considering creating a commission to probe the government’s response to the anthrax-laced letters that killed five people.

Representative Rush Holt, a Democrat, has submitted a bill that would create a bipartisan commission to investigate the government’s handling of the 2001 attacks, which also exposed 17 people to the powdery anthrax spores.

“Myriad questions remain about the anthrax attacks and the government’s bungled response to the attacks,” Holt said in a statement.

Holt said in a statement that the commission would review an investigation conducted by the FBI, which for years pursued the wrong suspect before turning its attention to a government anthrax researcher who committed suicide before he could be charged.</em>

If you need some catching up on the attacks- attacks that are strangely forgotten when ghouls such as Cheney blather about “no attacks since 9/11”- guess he forgot the caveat “That we didn’t do to ourselves” – read the timeline here.
