The FBI is investigating whether the anthrax spores used in last fall's attacks could have been grown secretly inside an Army lab and then taken elsewhere to be weaponized, according to three sources familiar with the ongoing probe.
A former government microbiologist, who was interviewed in recent days by the FBI, said agents focused their questioning on the logistics of how someone with access to the U.S. Army's biodefense labs at Fort Detrick, Md., might carry out the scheme. The microbiologist, who once worked at Fort Detrick, said the agents did not indicate if they had evidence that such an incident had occurred.

Well said! There are far too many coincidnetal items on the antrax to make me easily believe that the terrorist weapon is soley the work on one disgruntled person. If it was "one" person how could it kill people in NYC, WA DC and Florida? I know, I know, the mail. Yet really is that likely? Is it the simple explanation?
Even if someone at the lab was the source of the spores, teh FBI now believes it was "weaponized" off site into a size that they have said the US weapons program is not capable of doing and using a coating not part of the US weapons program. That translates into real money for real expensive equipment and real high quality air handling systems or else lots of sick/dead folks in the neighborhood.
If the truth is every told on this, I suspect that there will be a trail of money funneled into terrorists who bought disgruntled scientists and security agents. The source of that money is likely to be either Saudi, Iraq, or Iran. I also would not be surprised if in addition to some scientists, that some folks in the FBI haven't been bought by terrorists and that is a big part of this cover-up.
I think that with the dirty-bomb suspect, we are now beginning to get a picture of terrorists coming to the US to recruit people they think are capable of various kinds of terrorist acts and willing to spend big money on the recruits. Flying some Chicago gang punk around the world and setting him up with a wife in Egypt is not cheap. This kind of money and organization could easily buy a disgruntled scientist and maybe even someone within a government agency designed to protect the US.
What I can not understand, because it defies logic, is why Tom D, who was the target of a assasination attempt, isn't publicly and politically ripping the FBI, the Bush Administration, the CIA, the NSA up one side and down the other to expose their incompetence in finding the folks who tried to kill him. He has never been shy about pointing out things the thought the Bush Administration should have done. This is the perfect opportunity.
My conclusion is that he has been told who tried to kill him and Tom D has decided that he doesn't want to leak that information. For that hypothesis to be correct, the answer has to be pretty upsetting even to a partisan democrat, who cares little about the country.
Even if the delivery of spores is by foreign people, it still doesn't rule out that the original source of the spores is local.
This does make sense. In which case they will be scared to confront/arrest the Arab/islamic/muslim muhamid worshiper as to not hurt his/her feelings.
Notice how carefully phrased the FBI statements are. They give a casual reader the impression of referring to a "lone domestic scientist" theory, whereas, in fact, they are perfectly consistent with an act of terrorism by agents of a foreign state or organization. Moreover, the "remote location" at which the spores would have been weaponized could easily have been in another country.
One question here: Why is the FBI supposing that the anthrax was grown clandestinely at Ft. Detrick? Wouldn't it make more sense to sneak out a small sample of spores and then grow them at the "remote location"?
What? Just because the antrhax was home-grown in a government facility and some members of the administration were on Cipro six weeks before the appearance of the anthrax...Coincidence, simply a coincidence.

Death may find you in front of your one-eyed church of Satan or in the filthy bingo parlors where you worship your devil god, but be sure that you will not escape the consuming fire that is the real baptism of the Holy Ghost, The God of Racial Israel."

But I do know that Barbara Hatch Rosenberg is a nutbag. Google up her name and decide for yourself if you believe one word out of her mouth.
An ominous alliance: Senate Democrats with Barbara Hatch Rosenberg. I'm sure that will get to the bottom of things.
Is it possible that anthrax will become a political issue in this election? What a travesty that would be.
