Get your hot FBI anthrax documents here

The Justice Department, FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service today announced that the investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks, which killed five individuals and sickened 17 others, has formally concluded.

The conclusion is a formality, but it brings with it a great document dump. In response to Freedom of Information Act requests filed by McClatchy's Marisa Taylor and other reporters, the FBI is making generally available documents on the investigation.

Go here and here for the raw documents. Looks like good stuff, if you're into this kind of stuff: search warrants, letters, sketches and more.

I looked at the links but there was no reference to Dr. Steven Hatfill who "was subjected to 24-hour surveillance and was widely identified as the leading suspect" and eventually received a settlement from the government for identifying him as a criminal suspect without charging him.
