Dr. Bill Winkenwerder/Defense Department: It looked to be run of the mill. They're sensitive to all antibiotics. The FBI says it has responded to 25-hundred suspected anthrax threats across the country, but has only found the deadly bacteria in three locations: Florida, Washington DC and metropolitan New York. Thousands of people have been tested... only six are actually infected. Americas new homeland security czar is trying to calm public anxiety. Tom Ridge/Director Homeland Security: Vice President Dick Cheney is also trying to reassure an anxious nation. Out of sight for security reasons-- for weeks-- he traveled to New York Thursday--to see first-hand the devastation caused by the attack on the World Trade Center. In the Middle East, the US now has a third aircraft carrier-the Roosevelt - flying strikes against Afghanistan. American forces are shooting at Osama bin Laden's network and the Taliban every chance they can get. Donald Rumsfeld/Secretary of Defense: "We have seen some movement--while they were moving."))
