'Second Suspicious Letter Was Sent to President Obama'

In addition to a letter reportedly containing ricin sent to Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi, Fox News is reporting that a "second suspicious letter was sent to President Obama."
"An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News also said a second letter was sent to Obama, and was intercepted. That letter is still being screened," Fox News reports.
The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."
Both were signed, "I am KC and I approve this message."
According to a Homeland Security Department handbook, ricin is deadliest when inhaled. It is not contagious, but there is no antidote.
It's unclear whether the letter to Obama also contained ricin.

Initial tests show ricin in letter to Obama

Initial tests show ricin in letter to Obama

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a letter containing a "suspicious substance" that was addressed to President Obama, the agency confirmed on Wednesday, and at least three U.S. senators also reported receiving suspicious mail.

FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the letter to Obama tested positive for the substance ricin.

The letter was sent to Obama on Tuesday, and was intercepted at the White House mail screening facility, according to Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary.

The White House mail screening facility is a remote facility, not located near the White House complex, Leary said.

The White House declined to comment, deferring to the FBI and Secret Service which is leading the investigation.

The revelation of the suspicious letter to Obama comes less than 24 hours after U.S. Capitol Police confirmed it was investigating a letter addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., that tested positive for the poison ricin in a preliminary examination.

Obama was briefed on the suspicious letters on Tuesday night and again on Wednesday morning, said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Another suspicious package was received Wednesday morning at the Washington offices of Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., according to Shelby's spokesman Jonathan Graffeo. He said the package is being investigated by Capitol Police and it was not known if it was similar to the ones addressed to Obama and Wicker.

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., issued a statement saying that a suspicious letter also was received Wednesday morning at his Saginaw, Mich., field office. He said the staffer who received the letter did not open it and turned it over to authorities, who are investigating.

"We do not know yet if the mail presented a threat," Levin said.

The letter to Wicker, which was intercepted at an off-site Capitol mail facility, was found to contain a "white granular substance'' and was quarantined before a preliminary test indicated the substance was ricin, the statement said.

"The material is is being forwarded to an accredited laboratory for further analysis," according to the statement authorized by U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine.

The Capitol Police have closed access to the Hart Senate Office Building due to a suspicious package. People on other floors of the building are being told to go into their offices.

To each his own but personally I'd be outraged if somebody did something like that towards our Statsminister (prime minister) since he is the highest elected official and thus a representation of the country itself.

Re: 'Second Suspicious Letter Was Sent to President Obama'

American's these days are partisans. They're TV's have dumbed them down in many instances. They attack the other party over every single thing.

I don't trust any of them. Republicans are just as corrupt as Democrats. You'd have to be pretty stupid not to realize that.

Get smarter America. Hurry along now.
