Possible Anthrax Attacks-Pentagon Postal Facilities !!

Two Postal facilities servicing the Pentagon were shut down this morning after biosensors detected possible presence of anthrax.

The mail has been irradiated, and the 375 employees there have been tested for exposure,and offered antibiotics as a precaution.

Hazmat teams are checking the buildings: so far,no contamination found.

CNN report is here.

Worth noting: ALL mail going to the Pentagon (and other top-level gov't. offices) is irradiated. This makes any bio agent unable to reproduce,and possible to examine safely.

The USMARIID at Ft. Detrick is examining samples,and should have a report in 48-72 hours.
