We learned this week that the Pentagon accidentally sent live anthrax samples to labs via FedEx.
The Pentagon this week said that it accidentally sent live anthrax samples to government and private laboratories in at least nine states, and to a US military base in South Korea. As the Associated Press reports, the samples originated from a Department of Defense lab in Utah, which was supposed to send out killed samples. The labs were not equipped to handle the live spores they received instead, though military officials say there is no indication that the potentially fatal bacteria poses a broader health risk, and exposed workers are undergoing treatment.
Does this count as one of the biggest terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11? (I'm only half joking).
