This has apparently been shown to be untrue. The anthrax involved was pretty
ordinary, i.e., the sort that could be found in any laboratory that was
involved in research with anthrax. Anthrax spores are ubiquitous in the soil in
many areas of the Southwest and outbreaks of it in cattle, sheep and goats
occur almost every year. This makes the job of tracing the spores fairly
difficult; the FBI already has egg on its face from having hounded an innocent
researcher who had access to a 'weaponized' grade of anthrax. If it had come
from 'a secret US bioweapons laboratory' tracing it would be relatively easy.
