In the weeks following the September 11th attacks, biological terrorism -- now assumed to be the handiwork of right-wing groups or individuals within the US -- has intensified the level of paranoia for many people. Though the anthrax terrorists have killed a number of people and have dramatically affected many public services, little public scrutiny has focused on the investigation of this most recent version of domestic terrorism. Parts of From the Barrel of a Gun, written by Gerald Horne, a renowned scholar at the University of North Carolina, well before the September attacks point to possible reasons for the Bush administration's apparent inaction on domestic terrorism.
