And that's a case you don't want to catch, redux

The government researcher who was going to be accused of being behind the 2001 anthrax mailings killed himself. Glenn Grennwald has a long post discussing the role of ABCnews in disseminating the false claim that the anthrax was sourced from Iraq and wondering why ABC won't reveal who told them that in the first place, since either their source was lying to them or their source was themselves lied to. The importance of the story lies in the connection between the anthrax mailings and support for the war with Iraq. Update III to the post is intriguing, though overly conspiratorial.
