    I can't find anything in his history that would make him a target.

    ricin originates from castor beans. Regardless they allegedly have someone in custody on this who is a known nut job letter writer.

    I ran across this online. Is there a full moon out this week or something?

    Ricin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A dose as small as a few grains of salt can kill an adult human. The LD50 of ricin is around 22 micrograms per kilogram (1.78 mg for an average adult, around 1⁄228 of a standard aspirin tablet/0.4 g gross) in humans if exposure is from injection or inhalation.[1] Oral exposure to ricin is far less toxic and a lethal dose can be up to 20–30 milligrams per kilogram.

    If you remember right after 9/11/01 you had the anthrax attacks, letters with anthrax sent to people. If I remember correctly seven people died.

    It's believed that the person who was responsible was an American scientist who committed suicide I think back in 2008.

    The only reason I bring this up, that there are some who like to say these anthrax attacks were terrorist attacks on G.W. Bush's watch. Even though they had nothing to do with Al Qaeda or any other foreign terrorist organization.

    By their definition the bomb that was intercepted that was addressed to Sheriff Joe Arpaio last week would also meet the definition of a attempted terrorist attack. The person or individuals who sent the bomb were very likely pro illegal alien, pro amnesty and pro open borders. Does that mean that all who support amnesty are terrorist ?

    When ricin artillery shells along with mustard gas shells were found in Iraq during the Iraq war, the political left said that ricin didn't count as being a WMD.

    Just a point of clarification for the OP, Roger Wicker is a senator from Mississippi (MS) not Massachusetts (MA).

    Thank you for clarifying that. Hit the wrong key. Apologies.

    So it is only terrorism if it's a foreigner doing it?

    Who is this guy, Political Left? Why does what he says mean anything?

    Is there anything you do not try to spin into a mindless attack on people?
