It would really be nice if all the government leakers could get their stories straight about the Daschle Anthrax. Following on Ari Fleischer’s announcement today that even a microbiologist with a decent lab could have made the Daschle batch, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell is now saying investigators are giving a serious look at the home grown nut hypothesis and like the Washington Post two days ago noting that investigators are leaning away from the Iraq hypothesis. But then ABC says that the Daschle Anthrax contains something called ‘bentonite’ which is only known to be used by Iraq!
So what’s the deal?!?!?! Can’t we get a little better info here? And can ABC tell us whether one of the ‘bentonite’ experts is named Richard Perle?
