It appears that the deadly anthrax infection in Florida
was "delivered" by somebody with evil intentions.
FBI will soon arrest that individual, and America will
be lulled into a false sense of security.
Today we learn that the Florida anthrax was delivered in
letter form by a man
with Middle-East connections. That story can be found on Matt Drudge's
website. (Drudge is the reporter who first broke the Monica Lewinsky
Here is what you will not read on Drudge.
AMERICA'S ANTHRAX EPIDEMIC
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
recently averted a meat and dairy panic by using their enormous
resources to censor and keep the truth about America's meat supply from
USDA's mission is to protect the health and safety of
America's food supply, but their one true mission seems to be to protect
meat and milk producers, at all costs.
THE UNTOLD STORY
I have learned that there was an enormous meat recall
this past August, and that recall may very well have been traced to an
anthrax epidemic in cattle and cows in the state of Minnesota.
Hundreds of thousands of pounds of meat were affected.
Americans have not heard the story, which you will first
When meat is recalled, the usual reason given is "listeria"
infection. When chicken is recalled, the usual reason given is "E coli
This past summer, the reason for the recalled meat was
given as "E coli"
In July, hundreds of deer and several horses and cattle
died in south Texas
after an outbreak of anthrax.
In September, anthrax was found in a South Dakota
On August 30th, a total of 500,000 pounds of beef were
recalled from various states.
It appears that the recalled meat was processed at IBP's
Dakota City beef factory in Nebraska. Were cattle trucked a mere 100
miles from Minnesota to Nebraska, and the slaughtered meat distributed
to Sam's Clubs in Mississippi?
Anthrax victims die from pneumonia-like symptoms. It
might be appropriate to autopsy those who may have been infected from
diseased cattle and dairy cows.
England reacted to Hoof and Mouth Disease by destroying
millions of farm animals. British citizens recognized that meat and
dairy consumption may be hazardous to one's health, despite the fact
that Hoof and Mouth is rarely passed on to humans from farm animals.
An American anthrax epidemic might very well have ended
the consumption of meat in America.
USDA did their job very well. They protected those who
raise cattle and dairy cows so that an unsuspecting public might eat
diseased flesh and drink diseased body fluids.
I do not have the resources to check every trail from
every animal, but our government does. Conflicts of interest prevent
USDA from conducting an unbiased investigation.
The one American government body having the authority
and power to do the right thing is the Government Accounting Office
(GA0). The GAO is the investigative branch of Congress.

Americans have sacrificed freedoms and placed their
trust in government to protect their safety. Such faith is not what made
It is up to each of us to insure that our children,
