Editor’s note: Under the “conservative” Bush, white powder was sent to “liberal” politicians and news media, now under the “liberal” Obama, white powder assumed to be anthrax is sent to a “conservative” newspaper.
An unknown white powder was found in several packages mailed to the Wall Street Journal in New York City, according to Dow Jones.
Five employees were being decontaminated as a precaution, said FBI spokesman James Margolin.
Police evacuated the mailroom and another floor at the Dow Jones Inc. building.
At least four envelopes were opened and others were left unopened in the mailroom, police said. The Wall Street Journal said it had received more than a dozen envelopes containing the substance.
Field tests are being done on the substance. People who came into contact with the substance were isolated.
