NBC’s Pete Williams reported that the U.S. Government has agreed to pay Stephen Hatfill about $5.8 million in the case of the anthrax attacks that happened soon after 9/11. Hatfill had been declared “a person of interest” in the attacks. Williams said that it is “safe to assume” that Hatfill is no longer considered a person of interest.
