What, we got a miniature 9/11 redux here with ricin instead of anthrax?

Exactly. Like the anthrax, this had to be mailed before the bombing. Yet they will find some scientist minding his own business somewhere and he will go down for this.

Agents yes, taking aggressive action no.

Lil Kim doesn’t want a war that would end him. He wants attention that will fund him.

“Any bets on North Korean agents within the US?”

No, but I’d bet on Al Qaeda terrorists that came across the Mexican border.

The last big ricin event at USPS was a disgruntled contract mail hauler ~

Seriously, ricin attacks are nothing new.

If the pudgy little freak didn’t have anything to do with yesterday’s events, someone stole his spot light.

In any event, it's ANOTHER failure for Obama.

I thought everything was gonna be better after he bowed to the Saudis and bad mouthed America all over the world.

Someone didn't get the memo, or else they still don't like us.

Per Mark Levin reading the CNN report: The package was addressed to an unnamed Senator.

[That narrows it down to only about a hundred people.]

An envelope sent to a senator has tested positive for ricin, an extremely toxic poison, according to various news outlets. Mail sent to members of Congress is routinely tested before it’s allowed into the Capitol, and has been routinely tested since anthrax was sent to a members of the media and lawmakers in 2001. Politico is reporting that it was sent to Republican Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi.Envelope tests positive for deadly poison #ricin at the U.S. Capitol’s off-site mail ...http://www.denverpost.com/digitalfirstmedia/ci_23036840/ricin-sent-members-congress-roger-wicker

So much for TEA Party.
