The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Two state workers were fired Monday over a 2001 anthrax hoax that forced the evacuation of more than 800 employees from an office building. Joseph Faryniarz and David Sattler were dismissed by Connecticut's Department of Environmental Protection for engaging in an activity which is "detrimental to the best interests of the agency or the state," said commissioner Arthur Rocque. Faryniarz was convicted last December of lying to federal agents about the source of a white powder found on his desk next to a piece of paper marked with the misspelled word "anthax" on Oct. 11, 2001....

The white powder on each was determined to be wheat flour, according to Helen Fitzpatrick. It started about 7 a.m., when an employee at the West...
