Unready for Anthrax
: Stanford study and reccommendations: "In any attempted terrorist attack against this country, smallpox and anthrax would be the only two biological agents capable of causing mass casualties.

Two pounds of weapons-grade anthrax dropped on a large American city could result in more than 100,000 deaths.. Not enough people would receive antibiotics quickly enough to prevent symptoms from developing, and those who developed symptoms would overwhelm the medical facilities."
