You know about the Boston terror attack.
There have also been terrorist incidents today – in which no one has been hurt – in California and Washington D.C.
Specifically, CNN reports that an envelope containing the lethal poison Ricin was mailed to Capitol Hill. It was addressed to Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi, but was intercepted at the U.S. Capitol’s off-site mail facility in Washington.
And CBS San Francisco, ABC 7, KTVU, NBC Bay Area, the San Jose Mercury News and other media outlets are reporting that someone using a high-powered rifle fired bullets at a Pacific Gas & Electric substation near San Jose, California, causing damage (including a leak of 10,000 gallons of oil) and a statewide emergency alert to conserve energy.
About 15 minutes earlier, the same person(s) cut a Silicon Valley AT&T optic cable.
The vandal’s objective appears to have been “shutting down the system,” Sheriff Laurie Smith said at a news conference at the substation Tuesday afternoon.
This feels a lot like 2001, when the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were followed by the anthrax attacks … creating an atmosphere of widespread fear.
These could be unconnected incidents. Or someone might be trying to orchestrate a nationwide terror campaign to cause panic among the American people once again.
