Within days, 11 suspicious packages containing explosives and a letter filled with "ramblings" about mind control and terrorism were sent to the White House and various military, law enforcement and intelligence facilities across the Washington, D.C., area.
The FBI says they all came from Thanh Cong Phan, an Everett, Wash., man who they say for years has sent letters and emails to various government agencies. He was arrested before midnight Monday on charges of shipping explosive materials.
On Wednesday, the FBI released more details about where the packages were sent, which included a number of military bases, defense and intelligence facilities, along with the NSA, CIA and FBI, according to the bureau's Washington field office.
The White House was also sent one of the packages, but it was intercepted during screening by the Secret Service, according to a criminal complaint filed in Seattle federal court.
None of the packages exploded, and no one was injured.
