Other than putting it in the "mysterious bags of white powder"
found at the WTC a day after the attack and since forgotten,
the ones that everyone laughed and claimed were probably just

Other than that...

I'd put it into the ventilation fan of a major building that uses
recycled air and thus wouldn't vent my precious Anthrax outside
where it might disspate (however, if I thought crop-dusting with
it was going to work well, I might not worry about that part...
unless the crop dusting business was a deliberate red herring).

Rather lame approach of mailing it to the media, eh? Can you
think of a better way to facilitate panic than to attack the
propagandists directly and let them spread their own fear?
Lame, my ass. If I were trying to drum-up a major war, I'd
certainly spend the "intensive" labor of mailing germ warfare
agents to the propaganda machine of a powerful and determined
enemy. Read the Al Qaida propaganda, they WANT a major war,
they WANT to spread enough fear to provoke the US to do
something that will put all one billion muslims on their side.
That is essentially their stated goal - to draw ALL muslims
into a Holy War against the corrupt and decadent West and
the opressive, traitorous Mid East regiemes that the West

Attacking the media with Anthrax wouldn't be a tactic to get
body-count, it would be a tactic to spread fear. Now, of
course, there is no proof that it was Al Qaida that did it as
part of a deliberate fear tactic, but if it wasn't it is a
HELL of a coincidence (especially since the first cases
were contracted at a time that roughly coincides with the

It's a meme war, and if you believe Tony Blair, we're losing.
The raisin bombers, so far according to Blair, aren't
sufficient. We need a better weapon in the war for the hearts
and minds...

If you were a terrorist, and you had several kilos of stolen Russian
anthrax those mean FBI guys wouldn't let you load onto a crop duster,
what would you do with it? Besides the rather lame and labor-intensive
approach of mailing it to various newspapers and television stations?
Think carefully, the ass you save by predicting their next move may be
your own.
