Pentagon may have received shipment of live anthrax

The Pentagon is now investigating whether live anthrax was brought into the Pentagon building itself, CNN has learned exclusively.

The Pentagon Force Protection Agency, the Pentagon's police force, is one of the agencies that received questionable U.S. Army shipments of anthrax. That shipment now must be tested to see if its live rather than dead pathogen.

The Pentagon police received a shipment of what was supposed to be dead anthrax agent from one of three original lots, all of which are now shown to contain live, rather than dead anthrax.
