Leahy Believes Group Responsible for Anthrax Attacks

Sen. Patrick Leahy believes more than one person was involved in the anthrax attacks of 2001, of which he was one of the targets. The FBI has identified Bruce Ivins as the sole attacker.

Who are the others Leahy suspects of the murders? The leaders of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy? Al Qaeda? He offered no evidence anyone else was involved, and even questioned whether Ivins wasn't a scapegoat.

What I find interesting is the total lack of logic or reason in the statements of those who have some involvement and are commenting about the anthrax case. Leahy didn't even dare mention any of the unfounded conspiracy theories he probably has been told about and believes, out of fear of additional embarrassment.

Al Qaeda? Not nearly enough people were targeted for it to be one of their operations and even if it were, they would have made sure everyone knew about it.

Co-workers and friends of Ivins insist he was a wonderful guy despite solid evidence to the contrary. And now millions of taxpayer dollars will be spent on a review of the investigation that will unlikely change anyone's minds from whatever they want to believe.

Sen. Arlen Specter wants to name people to the review committee to ensure "objectivity." What's there to consider? Politics, Senator?
