Anthrax Scare Reveals Flaws

I mentioned this yesteday when all the correct information was available. We are terribly prepared for another terrorist attack.

Excerpt
The anthrax scare at the Pentagon (news - web sites) this week exposed gaps between the military's procedures in handling biohazards and those of the rest of the federal government, which could increase the threat to public health in the event of an actual contamination, health experts and federal and Virginia officials said yesterday.
Health officials inside government and out said the Pentagon's reliance on detection and response systems that are isolated from those at other federal agencies delayed Virginia health officials, the U.S. Postal Service and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (news - web sites) in moving to protect the public from a possible biohazard in the mail.
