RE: Don't blame Intelligence or Security Agencies.....

I cannot begin to express how happy I am that the terrorists did not elect
to carry-on a briefcase full of Anthrax or Botulinum Toxin. This would have
easily magnified the effects of the disaster exponentially.

Thought for the day:
Botulinum Toxin is a bio-chemical weapon so powerful that 1 pound (properly
distributed) would easily obliterate the eastern Seaboard. Manufacturing
this "Mega-Weapon" is only slightly more complex than making liquor.


Bio-chemical weapons have not been seen very often because of the
complex delivery systems required for effective use. A briefcase full of
nearly ANYTHING non-explosive would have a hard time surviving. Believe
it or not, Anthrax doesn't deal well with huge fireballs.

With that said, I'm also very glad that bio-chem was not deployed.
