Justice Dept. Asks Public for Help

WASHINGTON?Reaching out to the public for help, the Justice Department released copies of three letters that contained anthrax. Two appeared to be identical; all three contained anti-American and anti-Israeli messages.

The notes written in block letters to NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw and the editor of The New York Post warned recipients to ?Take penacilin now,? an apparent misspelling. ?Death to America,? ?Death to Israel? and ?Allah is Great? were written on each.

The envelope that contained the New York Post letter was written in the same sort of block letters, slanted to the right, as two envelopes addressed to Brokaw and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, released earlier.

The letter to Daschle contained seven lines written in block letters similar to the other two. ?You can not stop us. We have this anthrax. You die now. Are you afraid? Death to America. Death to Israel. Allah is great.?

All three letters were dated Sept. 11.
