On Wednesday American and Afghan troops finally entered the village of Shah-e-Kot, at the centre of the battle area. But among the shattered houses and terraced fields gouged by scores of bombs there were only three dead enemy fighters and another two who were injured. The rest had seemingly melted away."

Anthrax Investigation Provokes Charges of Cover-Up  3/13/02 Counterpunch: "According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, the Arms Mill outbreak is "the only anthrax epidemic" that occurred in the United States. The CDC also reports "that only 18 cases of inhalation anthrax were reported in the U.S. from 1900 to 1978 and that "two of the cases were laboratory associated." In an amazing coincidence, at the same time of the Arms outbreak, the mill was the site of tests using an experimental anthrax vaccine. The Biological Warfare Laboratories of the U.S. Chemical Corps at Fort Detrick, Frederick, Maryland, sponsored the tests, which began quietly in May 1955." Amazing coincidence!!!!!!!
