Rethinking the Anthrax Attacks

Five people died last fall after anthrax spores were sent through the mail, and more than 30,000 people were advised to take antibiotics. A year later, the FBI has yet to make an arrest. Observers say the agency needs to re-examine the basic facts and assumptions of the case. NPR's David Kestenbaum reports for Morning Edition.
