Anthrax Detected at Defense Mailrooms

"Another postal facility was closed Tuesday as concern spread over the detection of anthrax in two pieces of mail at military mailrooms. Antibiotics were offered to some 200 workers at the D.C. facility and to workers at the military mailrooms.

'We've also mobilized our strategic national stockpile so we have enough antibiotics available should the need arise,' said Dr. Gregg Pane, director of the city's Department of Health.

Ah! "Mobilized our strategic national stockpile," is a reference to the highly profitable aspect of the alleged "anthrax threat."
