Chertoff tells Leavitt: No Emergency, No Problem

In a particularly Kafka-esque memorandum, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff wrote to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt on September 23, 2008 and said bluntly that he had no evidence for an anthrax emergency… however, there exists a non-negligible risk there may someday be one, so feel free to invoke the provisions of the PREPA Act.

Read it and weep.

I may be an idiot, but I wonder if this isn’t in preparation for an October Surprise in time for the election.

I hope you are wrong, but if there is an October Surprise I hope it is anthrax and not a nuclear weapon.
