The baby of an ABC News employee has tested positive for cutaneous anthrax. Until now, there had been no reports of any suspicious envelopes or other signs of an anthrax attack at ABC News. The child had visited the set of World News Tonight on September 28.
Commentary from Unknowncountry.com: There are still officials talking about a ‘possible’ connection between Iraq, Osama bin Laden and the anthrax attack. However, it is clear now that the attack is more widespread than expected, and that there may be many more targets than previously expected. There is a substantial amount of planning behind this attack, and an unknown amount of weaponized anthrax available to the attackers.
