Plum Island: What If It's Contaminated, continued
If anthrax was being tested on Plum Island in WWII or the Cold War, it would have been highly secretive. There would not have been DANGER ANTHRAX signs, anymore than the Manhattan Project would have had signs posted saying
ATOMIC BOMB LAB. The story doesn't add up.
Most of the anthrax links to Plum Island are from the novel PLUM ISLAND and one of the Hannibal Lecter movies. "Anthrax Island".
That doesn't mean anthrax was not used, but I don't buy the story that its use was once common local knowledge....
There have been DANGER KEEP OUT signs for decades, but there has also been a lot of rumor and speculation.
