Headlines White Powder Found at Kerry Headquarters


Seeker of Truth
WASHINGTON - A white powder found in a package opened at presidential campaign headquarters Thursday was harmless and could have been garlic powder, authorities said of an apparent hoax that forced police to seal off the building.

"It appears to be some kind of garlic powder, commonly used for seasoning foods," said Alan Etter, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C., Fire Department.

The package, containing two letter-sized envelopes, was turned over to the FBI for further investigation.

Debra Weierman, spokeswoman for the FBI's Washington field office, said initial field tests on the substance turned up no evidence of any harmful substance. "No hazard was detected," she said.

The white powder was in a letter containing a contribution to Kerry's presidential campaign, she said. There was no threatening message in that letter, she added.

Further lab tests will be done on the substance to ensure that the field tests were accurate, Weierman said.

Etter said authorities initially were told there was a threat, but later determined the envelopes contained blank pieces of paper.

Garlic powder! Somebody's playin' hardball...

Hmmm, we have a new Italian newbie, Al Caponeoni ?
