WMD Case Study II

Impact of Bioterrorism

One of the earliest known cases of bioterrorism occurred in 1346 when the Tartars (Mongols) were besieging Caffa, a grain port on the Black Sea (present day Feodosiya in Ukraine). On October 4, 2001, a photo editor at the National Enquirer’s parent company was recognized as the first victim of a bioterrorism attack on American soil. Twenty-four hours later, he died from inhalational anthrax. The purpose of this case study is to research a potential biological agent or toxin that could be weaponized.
