The top two stories at Buzzflash deal with the anthrax investigation, or lack thereof. VOANews.com reports that one of the 'people of interest' in the case had been attending medical school in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) at the time of a human anthrax outbreak that killed about 200 and sickened 10,000. It was thought to have been deliberately spread by the white supremacist army that controlled Rhodesia at the time. Another detail that was reported was that there is a suburb of Harare known as Greendale, and the fake school on the Daschle anthrax letter was "Greendale School".

In addition, the Baltimore Sun reports that this same person's degree in molecular biology from Rhodes University in South Africa doesn't actually exist. Nor did he serve with the 7th Special Forces Group of the US Army, because he washed out of training at Fort Bragg.

Curiouser and curiouser...
