Congress Members 'furious' at FBI for 'blackout' '01 anthrax attacks probe
Roll Call: Congress Members 'furious' at FBI for 'blackout' of 2001 anthrax attacks probe

RAW STORY
Published: Thursday October 12, 2006

Some Congressional Members are "furious" at the FBI for its "blackout" of the investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks which "left five people dead and dozens of others injured or facing lengthy courses of dangerous drug therapy," according to Roll Call.

"The FBI has completely shut Congress out of its now five-year investigation into anthrax attacks on Capitol Hill and around the nation, with accusations flying up and down Pennsylvania Avenue about the probe into the worst biochemical attacks in U.S. history," Paul Kane writes.

Roll Call reports that the "FBI and Justice Department have not briefed two key players in the attacks former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the Senators who were targeted by anthrax-laden letters in at least two and a half years."

Excerpts from Roll Call article:

1. Ah, the non-partisan FBI.
What secrets are waiting for the shredder after November elections?

2. Probably because the anthrax came from an Army research lab...

3. Someone knows the real story on this attack......if only this would get
leaked before the election. Glad to see that there's at least one media source still willing to remind the public that this investigation has yet to bring the perps to justice.
