    I'm always a bit cynical about these claims. Are we sure these actually exist? We never actually see them.

    Hey, everybody, I received anthrax in my phone bill yesterday. Trust me.

    The one to Obama has now been confirmed as ricin as well. And this:

    The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."
    Both were signed, "I am KC and I approve this message."

    According to one senator, they have a suspect in mind. Female. Interesting they would divulge this information.

    Initial Test on Letter Addressed to Obama Indicates Ricin: FBI.....

    Someone has sent Obama a Letter laced with the Poison Ricin, trying to get to our President!!!!!!


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A letter addressed to President Barack Obama carrying traces of a suspicious substance was received at a White House mail screening facility on Tuesday and preliminary tests showed it contained the deadly poison ricin, the FBI said on Wednesday.



    An FBI statement said that an envelope addressed to the president and "containing a granular substance that preliminarily tested positive for ricin" had been received.

    The facility where the letter was received is remote and is not near the White House, Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said in a statement.

    "This facility routinely identifies letters or parcels that require secondary screening or scientific testing before delivery," he said.

    "The Secret Service is working closely with the U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI in this investigation."

    On Tuesday U.S. authorities had intercepted a letter sent to Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker that preliminary tests showed contained ricin.....snip~

    I am glad the have a suspect in mind already. I hope they can stop this person before they hurt somebody or turn to violence.

    2) Leader of a country

    3) Leader of the most powerful country in the world

    I'm pretty sure you can count this as legitimate.

    It also makes a sympathetic figure out of the recipient immediately.

    I'm just throwing it out there. I always have that thought when I hear of these.

    the only connection is that Wicker was one of the Republicans who voted to break the gun control filibuster. then again, that might have nothing to do with it.
