Suspicious Letters
Cars pull up to the Arnold Gate of the Anacostia-Bolling joint military base in Washington, Wednesday, April 17, 2013, where mail for the White House is sorted. In a capital city on edge, letters sent to President Barack Obama and a Mississippi senator tested positive for poisonous ricin in preliminary checks, and authorities chased a stream of reports Wednesday of other suspicious-looking items sent to senators in Washington and beyond. The gate is named for the late Gen. Henry "Hap" Arnold Gate, the first and only five-star General of the Air Force. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
