    'Suspicious substance' found in Obama letter

    The US Secret Service says it has intercepted a letter addressed to President Barack Obama that contained a "suspicious substance".Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said on Wednesday that the letter was intercepted at a facility away from the White House. He says the letter was received on Tuesday.
    "This facility routinely identifies letters or parcels that require secondary screening or scientific testing before delivery," Donovan said.
    "The Secret Service is working closely with the US Capitol Police and the FBI in this investigation."

    Another suspicious letter found, this one to Obama

    Another suspicious letter found, this one to Obama - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- White House mail handlers identified a "suspicious substance" in a letter sent to President Barack Obama the same day one suspected of containing the poison ricin was found in a Senate mailroom, the Secret Service said Wednesday.Both letters arrived Tuesday at off-site postal facilities set up after the 2001 anthrax attacks and have been sent to laboratories for additional tests, authorities said.
    "A letter addressed to the president containing a suspicious substance was received at the remote White House mail screening facility," Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said. The Secret Service, FBI and Capitol Police are investigating, he said.

    No idea. Reminds me of the anthrax threat after 9/11.

    Mailing poison is a lax, almost pointless attempt, imo. All of that mail goes through a screening process that would make even TSA green with envy. And I would think that anyone who can get their hands on something like ricin without getting busted would be intelligent enough to get that.

    What kind of idiot thinks you can just mail a letter to the president and he'll personally open and read it?
