Envelope Laced with Poison Mailed to White House

The U.S. Secret Service says a letter addressed to the White House has tested positive for cyanide, a deadly poison.

The agency, which is charged with protecting the president and other high-ranking officials, issued a statement Tuesday saying the letter was received at a screening facility away from the White House campus the day before. The letter initially tested negative for biological agents, but the agency said further tests returned a “presumptive positive” for cyanide.

    “My suspicion is this might be Muslims however. I know, I know, I’m goin out on a limb here…”.

    According to Obama, and CBC News, this atrocity has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with Islam. To say as much is Islamophobic, eh?

    Given their track record I tend to not believe the Secret Service. Given HIS record I tend to not believe Obama.

    Funny how the media never reported on death threats against Bush 43 but do for half-assed threats to Obama. It’s almost like they want to generate sympathy for Obama and try to paint all of his political opponents as being part of the psycho, anti-Obama polity but that would be crazy talk on my part. And nice of VOA to mention the ricin letter without mentioning it wasn’t a deadly amount (IIRC) and that a wife (ex-wife?) was doing it to frame her (ex?) husband for trying to kill Obama to get the authorities on his ass.

    Best way to deliver cyanide to the white house would to just install new windows coated in the substance. Everyone knows that the inhabitants of the white house are nothing more than an illiterate, window licking, bunch of morons.
