    Default Contaminated Money - Bio Terror?

    Contaminated Money

    Jan 28, 2005 11:00 pm US/Eastern
    PHILADELPHIA (KYW) Money that has been contaminated with a virus; its a whole new possible direction for bioterrorism. It is a case that the FBI terrorism unit has taken over from state police that involves several cities, including Philadelphia.

    As CBS 3s Tamsen Fadal reports, the unit is trying to determine whether or not a virus was actually placed over money to protect the interest of the Russian mob.

    In an exclusive investigation, CBS 3 has obtained documents detailing a bizarre criminal plot involving a virus, suspected drug money, and the Russian mob in Northeast Philadelphia.

    Earlier this month, Pennsylvania State Troopers intercepted $250,000 dollars during a routine traffic stop. The alleged drug money, which had been sealed in plastic, was being driven from Columbus, Ohio to Northeast Philadelphia.

    According to law enforcement sources, after counting the seized cash, troopers began feeling ill and one trooper was even hospitalized with flu-like symptoms.

    Sources tell CBS 3 that tests on the cash counter revealed the presence of a toxin derived from the bacteria staphylococcus.

    Dr. Joseph Smith, a local terrorism expert says it may be a new application of terrorism, although this time it was used as a deterrent among thieves: I am not that surprised, this is the nature of terrorism. By its nature, you have to say we must always be mindful and careful of new applications.

    However, Fadal says that when CBS inquired about the case, FBI Spokesperson Jerri Williams said this is under investigation and we have no information to provide to the public at this time."

    While law enforcement says there are no known instances where the toxin has been used with malicious intent, Dr. Smith says he would not be surprised if criminals are now employing some of the same tools as terrorists: This is one of the unique natures of terrorism. Its different than your conventional type of warfare.

    Fadal has learned that a warning has been issued at both the state and federal level, recommending that officers should take extra precaution and wear protective masks when handling suspected drug money, now more than ever.

    Whenever they think of a new way terrorists could attack, what do they do? That's right -- they put it out in the media so that if the terrorists had never thought of it, they can read the article or see the story on TV and think, "What a great idea!"

    Why not inject a perfectly clean (passport/Interpol-wise) terrorist with smallpox and send him on vacation in, say, Melbourne? OOPS!! Sorry, mate...

    Dude, thinking up ways to terrorize the world is not the issue. The issue is thinking up ways to stop it.

    Seriously, I've thought the same thing. The other thing that drives me crazy is when they tell you about something horrible that could affect you and they tell you to stay tuned for the whole story! WTF? I need to know NOW!
    I remember a skit on an SNL hosted by Seinfeld where he was the reporter... "That household product just became deadlier. Find out what it is after the break."
