TRENTON (AP) A New Jersey congressman is calling for a congressional investigation into the government's handling of a major anthrax investigation, which was closed last week.
U.S. Rep. Rush Holt believes the FBI botched the case from 2001, when anthrax-laced letters were sent from a mailbox in Princeton.
He also says the Postal Service and other agencies may not have learned the proper lessons from the attacks, which killed five people and sickened 17.
The FBI last month closed its investigation after concluding Army scientist Bruce Ivins was responsible for the attacks. Ivins killed himself in 2008.

Did he send the letter to Chile too?
What did he have against the tabloid editor in Florida?
Democrat of course...
It probably would have helped their case if they had actually *found* anthrax making equipment on the now-dead suspect.
But, they didn’t...
There was no anthrax letter in Florida...the JLo letter was a dead end.
Holt should get an anthrax probe

There was no anthrax letter FOUND in Florida.
There was no anthrax letter FOUND in Florida.
There was no anthrax letter in Florida. The 9/11 terrorists there paid their rent in cash...anthrax is easily transmitted in cash...and they rented an apartment from someone connected to the Florida building.
That’s why there was no anthrax letter found in Florida.
Look at the distinct anthrax letters. “We have this anthrax. Take Penicillin now.”
No one would “forget” a letter like that.
Thus, there was no anthrax letter in Florida. The FBI is complicit on keeping the Pakistani anthrax secret for geo-political reasons.
People who get nutty letters every day would.
There was no letter found at ABC, either. Yet a child contracted cutaneous anthrax there.
There was no letter found at CBS, either. Yet an assistant to Dan Rather contracted cutaneous anthrax.
The anthrax letter sent to the National Enquirer in Florida was sent at the same time as the other anthrax letters to the media. The evidence is clear about that.
And The National Enquirer and her sister newspapers get screwball letters every day. Most just get thrown out.
Nope. After 911, anyone getting a letter talking about anthrax would have never forgotten it.
Thus, your *theory* falls apart.
There was no Florida anthrax letter. That’s the evidence. QED.
You're using typical 20-20 hindsight.
In reality, all the missing letters were thrown away before anyone realized that there were anthrax letters.
Proof: The New York Post letter was thrown away and then recovered weeks later from the trash.
Proof: The Brokaw letter was tossed in a junk mail bin and when it was learned that there was anthrax at NBC, everyone thought it was a DIFFERENT letter. When that other letter was found to NOT contain anthrax, they hunted for the actual anthrax letter and finally found it.
"There was no Florida anthrax letter. Thats the evidence. QED."
Clearly, solid proof means nothing to you. What's your explanation for how the AMI building became so contaminated, how Bob Stevens was killed with the SAME STRAIN as in the New York media letters, and how Ernesto Blanco also became infected at AMI? All the anthrax at AMI was exactly the same strain as in the New York letters.
Dr. Ivins worked in a laboratory where all the necessary equipment was located. It was part of his job to create spores identical to what was in the anthrax letters. He worked long hours ALONE in his lab at the time the spores were being created. The only significant difference between the spores in the letters and the spores created by Dr. Ivins as part of his job was that the spores in the letters were dry. But spores will dry all by themselves if allowed to do so. So, drying spores is NOT difficult. Ivins knew how to do it.
Anthrax, like cocaine, attaches itself easily to paper currency.
The anthrax came from Pakistani jihadis to the 9/11 hijackers, who rented a room from the wife of one of the people in the Florida AMI building.
The 9/11 hijackers paid their rent in cash. The cash rent money was contaminated.
The cash went through the Florida AMI building as cash does as it flows between people.
Obviously, those who used some of the rolled up cash in the Florida AMI building to subsequently snort cocaine, contracted more anthrax spores in their lungs than did anyone else in the building.
Thus, there was no anthrax letter in Florida. It’s unsurprising that no such letter was ever found, as the anthrax trail in Flordia was on the cash, not in the discarded letters.
Nope. You can't name the machines that Dr. Ivins had access to.
Unfortunately, that bizarre idea it TOTALLY DISPROVED by the facts. The most contaminated area in the AMI building was the mail room around the desk where Stephanie Dailey opened the anthrax letter. She remembered opening a letter containing a powder, and all the testing done in the AMI building CONFIRMS that the spores came from around her desk.
There was no anthrax letter in Florida. Evidence. Evidence. Evidence.
