Palm Beach Post, April 16, 2013:
“(the 2001) anthrax attacks took place at the U.S. Senate, in New York City and in Connecticut (and in Florida).
… And we still don’t know who did it.”
Rep. Rush Holt (D, NJ) served as Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from its start in 2007 until it was disbanded in 2010. The Panel was charged with strengthening oversight of the intelligence community by ensuring that policymakers receive accurate assessments, civil liberties are safeguarded, and the intelligence community is protecting Americans at home and abroad. Holt is also the Congressman who initiated the request for a GAO review of the FBI’s anthrax investigation, a review is is still ongoing.
