The allegations about the anthrax suspect and his interaction with mental health professionals raise several questions:

  • Why would a top bioterror expert go to a fresh-out-of-school sociologist, a group addiction counselor, as opposed to an experience psychiatrist or psychologist? Why would he talk about homicidal tendencies in a group counseling session, as opposed to a private session?
  • How could someone committed to a mental institution on the basis that he was a likely mass murderer and a danger to himself and others simply “sign himself out” of the mental institution?
