There's only one way to end the anthrax terrorist attacks, says the Libertarian Party. " The outbreak of anthrax on Capitol Hill is ultimate proof that nothing can protect all Americans from unpredictable 'retail' terrorist attacks -- the only long-term solution is to move towards a [non-interventionist] foreign policy to deprive terrorists of their rationale for targeting us....Our foreign policy should have one simple goal: To defend Americans in the United States against the risk of attack from foreign powers....Unfortunately, our current policy does everything but that."

Watching Our Tongue

___

Avoiding junk food news? Check out Project Censored. In 1981 they reported that while research on biological weapons was banned in 1969, the CIA still maintained warfare stockpiles. Further, a 1998 story revealed that the biological weapons materials in Iraq was supplied by U.S. firms. In 1993 they told how the CIA was unsuccessfully trying to buy back hundreds of surface-to-air Stinger missiles it gave the Afghan guerrillas. The top censored story of 1997 said the U.S. was the principal arms merchant for the world and warned that U.S. troops may be at risk from our own weapons. In 1984, Project Censored reported that the U.S. had secretly given the Afghan rebels up to $300 million in covert aid, far more than the controversial $24 million it had given the Nicaraguan contras.
