    Package prompts evacuation of D.C. courthouse

    Incident delays hearing in CIA leak case; package not a bomb, official says

    WASHINGTON - A federal courthouse within sight of the Capitol was evacuated Wednesday morning when a suspicious package was found near the building. Hours later it was determined it was not a bomb, the U.S. Marshalls Service told NBC News, but rather a soiled plastic bag filled with clothing, apparently left by one of the city's homeless who often take shelter outside an entrance to federal court

    I smell something.

    And it's not the "soiled plastic bag left by a homeless person" either.
