The FBI begins draining a pond in Frederick, Md., in search of evidence that might have been discarded there following the fall 2001 mailings of envelopes laced with anthrax. The pond is near the Army's biodefense lab at Ft. Detrick, where research into anthrax has been conducted. NPR's David Kestenbaum reports.
