      After reading this I post I went and listened to both CNN and MSNBC and they reported the same thing as of 1:45 PM today;

      "According to our FBI sources the letters that were received on Tuesday have tested positive for Ricin at the postal facility and they are waiting are confirmation form their laboratory testing facility."

      So either you heard a sloppy initial report or you heard what you wanted to hear.

      If you remember all the misinformation that has been put out on the Boston Bombing... two bombs... no 5 bombs... the JFK library... no it was a fire... and so on, you should no to wait for 24 hours to even get an real factual basis for an opinion.

      CNN is now reporting that an arrest of a dark skinned suspect has been arrested... MSNBC is not reporting anything like that, but CNN is already speculating "foreign involvement" which is based only on the description of skin color as per an unnamed source.

      The letters may actually be Ricin in the final analysis... but wait for the facts to come out first.
