Demanding Anthrax Answers

Five years after anthrax attacks killed Americans in New Jersey, Washington, DC and Florida -- and forced Congress into temporary offices and a crisis mode -- the case remains unsolved. And Congress wants to know why.

Thirty-five lawmakers have fired off a bi-partisan letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales demanding he update Congress on the case.

The AG has not talked to Congress about it citing the potential for leaks. The Congressional letter writers say he shouldn't use that as an excuse to dodge answering to Congress in it's oversight role of how well the FBI is doing it's job. (AP)
