German investigators think Iraq and Osama bin Laden are involved in the US anthrax outbreaks.
They believe suicide hijacker Mohammed Atta received anthrax spores from an Iraqi intelligence chief in Prague.
Iraq denies involvement in either the September 11 atrocities or the anthrax attacks.
According to the Daily Express, investigators believe Atta kept the spores in Hamburg before taking them to New York.
Iraq is one of three countries thought to be capable of making the special anthrax spores which have been treated with a chemical, enabling them to stay in the air longer.
The other countries are the US and Soviet Union.

It has reached it's "trffic allotment" for the day. That's what I hate about free webhosting services like Geocities.
Of course that should be TRAFFIC Allotment.
The "Daily Express" looks like a tabloid to me.

If only this were from another source than Ananova.
And if only other news sources would actually bother pursuing this story.

Then why was so much effort wasted trying to pin it on an "Evil white American male?"

If this is true...
When do we get an apology from Gerhard Schroeder and his gang of misfit socialist wankers?

Wonder if they (the US Administration ) are sitting on this info and plan to use it at the appropriate time?
