Nobel Intent: Was there a bioterror attack on DC?:

But what if there was a bioterror attack and no-one noticed? That might not be so far fetched, if some news reports are to be believed. It turns out that, following the recent anti-war protest in the US capital, six different bioweapon sensors located across the city all tested positive for F. tularensis, the bacteria responsible for tularemia. Worryingly, it took several days between finding a positive result and the CDC being notified. […] The government claims that nothing happened, and that no-one got sick, but Salon is reporting that numerous participants in the anti-war demo have come down with illnesses that resemble tularemia.
