I don't know about this, but the anthrax scare does seem to be domestic
attack. All of the sources, House Democrats, House Republican, Liberal TV,
Liberal Newspapers, and the like seem to be targets that hate-mongers in
this country would target. Foreigners would think of CNN as U.S. TV, not
one of the networks. Foreigners would see U.S.A. Today as U.S. Newspaper,
not The Enquirer. Foreigners would go after military or executive targets
that interfere overseas, not lawmakers or judges which usually work
internally. These aren't even major icons of the U.S. chosen for symbolic
representation. The entire spectrum of targets reveals a disgruntled
citizen who doesn't like the direction our country is going, rather than an
external terrorist trying to provoke a religious war.
