Pentagon May Have Received Live Anthrax Shipment

29 02.06.2015 Инфо

The Pentagon is now investigating whether live anthrax was brought into the Pentagon building itself. According to CNN exclusively,
the Pentagon Force Protection Agency--the Pentagon's police force--is one of the agencies that received questionable U.S. Army shipments of anthrax. That shipment now must be tested to see if it contains live-- rather than dead--pathogens. The Pentagon police received a shipment of what was supposed to be dead anthrax agent from one of three original lots, all of which are now shown to contain live, rather than dead anthrax. The Pentagon has not disclosed if any of that anthrax was ever brought into the Pentagon building or the areas directly outside the Pentagon. Two defense officials told CNN the anthrax was to be used to help calibrate sensors at the Pentagon for detecting chemical or biological agents.
