The attacks were not entirely unexpected. I [Washington Post journalist Richard Cohen] had been told soon after Sept. 11 to secure Cipro, the antidote to anthrax. The tip had come in a roundabout way from a high government official, and I immediately acted on it. I was carrying Cipro way before most people had ever heard of it. [Slate]

WHY SEND ANTHRAX SPECIFICALLY
TO THE MEDIA AND CONGRESS?

The most likely motive for Anthrax being sent to congress was to discourage congressmen from reading letters from the people of the United States, thereby making the CIA controlled media and rigged polls the only source of information from which Congress could act.

This effectively cut off the public from Congress. Only those people able who could get through the switchboards would have had any voice at all.

The same is true with the media. Sending Anthrax to the media was designed to force then to end all contact with the letter-writing public. The Arizona Star, as one example, refused delivery of all snail mail unless it came from a known source.

Ask yourself this, would a real terrorist want to make the American media totally dependent on the U.S. Government for all its information, to prevent the media from receiving mail from U.S. citizens who question the official story and who are opposed to the war?

And, it should be noted that Congress was being sent Anthrax just at the exact moment the anti-terror legislation was being pushed through congress. According to Ron Paul, most congressmen voted for the bill without even reading it.
