How many people have been affected?


The New York Times reported last month that more than

130 Americans have been sickened. The Senate Intelligen­ce Committee said in April that the pattern of attacks “appears to be increasing”; that same month, Pentagon officials told the House Armed Services Committee they’re increasing­ly worried about possible attacks on U.S. troops in the Middle East and elsewhere. “We have failed to take it seriously as a threat,” said Rep. Jim Banks, an Indiana

Republican on the committee.
