WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairman of the of Senate Judiciary Committee does not believe that Dr. Bruce Ivins acted alone in the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks.
Sen. Patrick Leahy was one of the targets of the lethal anthrax-laced letters that killed five and sickened 17 in fall 2001. On Wednesday, the Vermont Democrat told FBI Director Robert Mueller that he thinks other people must have been involved.
Leahy did not say why he believed Ivins had help and he also cast doubt that the Army scientist was the attacker in the first place.
