Letter with “Suspicious Substance” addressed to President Obama

From Politico Breaking News:

A letter addressed to President Barack Obama “containing a suspicious substance was received at the remote White House mail screening facility” on Tuesday, the Secret Service announced Wednesday.

The Secret Service said that the letter was received at a facility that routinely identifies letters or parcels that require secondary screening or scientific testing before delivery.

“The Secret Service White House mail screening facility is a remote facility, not located near the White House complex,  that all White House mail goes through,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. “The Secret Service is working closely with the U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI in this investigation.”

So we have the Boston Marathon Bombing, a letter suspected to be laced with a poison, ricin sent to Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi being reported yesterday and now we have a letter “containing suspicious substance”. 

And this just in….

Capitol Police are responding to reports of suspicious packages in the Hart and Russell Senate office buildings and a bomb squad is on the scene. The buildings have not been evacuated, but certain areas of the buildings have been closed.

This has the makings of some homegrown terror, hopefully the “suspicious packages” in the Hart and Russell Senate office buildings will turn out to be nothing and just a result of everyone being extra cautious.

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
