Second, considering that the 8 1/2 x 11 inch
manila envelop in this case was smaller that either the paper
or diaper bags which had caused previous terrors, both of which
required closing only small sections of the Park for short periods,
and further considering that this time the police had highly efficient
technology -- a highly sophisticated robot -- to deal with the
potential terror; why did it take officials over two hours to
discover that the manila envelop was perfectly harmless?
Third, was it all a coincidence, or was the Secret Service
and friends using an 8 1/2 x 11 inch manila envelope
to cover malicious harassment of the anniversary which had been
announced in the Washington Times that morning?
