  •  Actually a great deal more has happened (5+ / 0-)

    from the letters, especially as a result of those sent to Senate.

    Before we retired our students participated in the Critical Issues Forum at the Center for Non- Proliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute for International Studies.

    One thing they learned about the anthrax letters to Congress back during the Bush Administration was the that even though anthrax was very difficult to be weaponized and therefore not considered to be a valid WMD,   though    letters caused a huge economic impact/disruption/terror.  

    Since then millions have been spent on security and changing mail handling and other practices.  Doubtless the result of the letter to the Pres and Senators, whether ricin is found or not, will bring about more.

    This is hard to discount or brush off, and the sender obviously knew that such disruption would follow these actions.
