A disgruntled former sailor is believed to be behind the ricin attacks against the White House, Pentagon and Ted Cruz’s office. Fox News reports:
Packages with suspicious substances sent to the Pentagon, White House and Sen. Ted Cruz’s office in Texas this week were part of a coordinated effort by a former Navy sailor, officials told Fox News.
Investigators said one of the envelopes, addressed to either Defense Secretary James Mattis or the Navy’s top officer, Adm. John Richardson, contained a return address leading them to believe it came from the sailor, whose name has not been disclosed.
A Pentagon spokesperson told Fox News on Wednesday that at least two of the envelopes contained castor seeds — the substance from which the poison ricin comes from.
Officials say a tip from the White House led the Pentagon to discover the two packages sent to the Pentagon — and now both are in the hands of the FBI for further testing.
This is a repeat of last year’s shooting against GOP congressmen – a terrorist attack against conservatives and institutions.
