Mystery not solved
Even though Dr. Bruce Ivins, the lead suspect in the still-unsolved Anthrax attacks in the fall of 2001, has committed suicide, there is a compelling argument made by Richard Spertzel, a chemical/biological warfare specialist, that the FBI had the wrong man: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121789293570011775.html?mod=djemEditorialPage. I've always wondered about these attacks, and never understood why the public forgot about them so quickly. What was done once can be done again. If Spretzel is right, it took a lot more than one rogue scientist to pull this off, no matter how brilliant he may have been. The question is, who was that? It would behoove our government to find out, before thousands (or more) are killed in a much larger-scale attack.
