My email to GAO …

Several years ago, at the request of Congressman Holt, the GAO began a review of the FBI’s investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks. You indicated a time frame of approximately one year to complete. It is now much more than one year and no report, even a progress report, has been issued. Could you please provide an update of the status of your review and when you expect to issue a report.
