Last night a letter addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) tested positive for the powerful poison. There is no known connection between the ricin letters and the Boston bombings. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said last night that there is a suspect in the first ricin letter.

Update: Fox reports that both letters were mailed on April 8, from Memphis, TN. Neither of the letters ever reached any Senate office.

Update: It sounds like we now have three ricin letters. A third one was reportedly sent to President Obama.

Update: There may be less to these ricin letters than meets the eye. After last night’s revelation of the first letter, addressed to Sen. Wicker, Sen. Claire McCaskill said two interesting things. The first is that they already have a suspect in mind. The second is that this suspect is known to send letters to politicians. It’s reasonable to deduce from that the person sends ricin-laced letters frequently. Capitol mail safety protocol ensures that they never reach their targets. This time, the letters happened to coincide with the Boston bombing. They were reportedly mailed April 8, a full week before the bombing. The safest guess at the moment, therefore, is that the letters and the bombing are unrelated.

Update: Intelwire reports–

If ballots fail to dislodge leaders seen as threats to the people then other means will be found to vote them out of office.
Washington politician's and their lackeys in the media are targets now and it looks like it's going to get worse.
I don't care for the terrorist but I have zero sympathy for any of those politician's.
I'm hoping they kill each other and leave the majority of the American's alone.

It is surely strange.
9/11 followed by the anthrax attacks.
Boston followed by the ricin letters.

Could it be a signature meant to be read by someone who knows something special ??????????

These attacks are definitely related. The bomber is following the 9-11 pattern. First the kinetic attack followed by a bio-weapon attack. This combined attack is certainly of domestic origin but is probably not connected to any specific group. The perpetrator(s) is/are almost certainly Truthers sympathetic to the OWS movement. The FBI will of course be focusing on white supremacists and militia groups just as the police decided that the DC sniper was a single white male loner between 25-40 and allowed Malveaux and Mohammed to slip through the police cordons after each shooting.

And please tell me why the skepticism? /sarc

The OWS movement is known to have very violent anarchist element and a disproportionate number are Truthers. You would want to throw off the authorities by mimicking other profiled groups. I would be very surprised if there is foreign connection and this is not the kind of target that an anti-government group would select. It is the kind of target an anarchist group would choose. Terrorist groups want to send a message and nobody is claiming responsibility. Solving this crime requires thinking out of the box.
