"At the National institutes of Health, research
on bioweapons agents has increased 3,000
percent, from $53 million in 2001 to more than
$1.6 billion in 2008."

patented (US Patent #6,523,4) a new grenade
that it says can be used to wage biowarfare.
"Texas A&M University did not report to Federal
authorities until April 10, 2007 (after prodding
by the Sunshine Project) that an aerosol
chamber mishap caused a biology student to
be stricken with the bioweapons agent brucella
in its laboratory for bioweapons agent research
on February 9, 2006."

"NBACC says its work is defensive in character,
but by secretly exploring potential offensive
applications... NBACC will have helped to
create the very threat it professes to counter"

"Only hours after sensors in a U.S. Senate
office building detected a nerve agent, key
Senators suddenly reversed direction and

"The United States has remained the most
vocal critic of reopening negotiations on a
verification mechanism for the convention.
Negotiations on such a protocol have been
stymied since the United States abruptly

biodefense programs, their ambition and
administrative aggressiveness, and the degree
to which they push against the prohibitions of

startling." "Biodefense crossing the line"

"In a proposed law on the Senate floor, a giant
new biodefense "sensitive but unclassified"

"The US used chemical weapons in Iraq - and
then lied about it. Now we know napalm and
phosphorus bombs have been dropped on
Iraqis, why have the hawks failed to speak out?"

"In addition to creating the [1918 Spanish flu]
virus, the scientists said they would place the
gene-sequencing information from the new
research in GenBank, a public database...
GenBank will allow some research groups to
build their own[dreaded 1918 virus that killed
millions...] rather than seek samples of what the
CDC had created."

"Despite the eradication of smallpox... [r]
esearch is being done to develop even more

A British Court has recognized for the first time

“[W]e have determined that the reconstructed
replication competent forms of the 1918
pandemic influenza virus containing any
portion of the coding regions of all eight gene
segments have the potential to pose a severe
threat to public health and safety.”

Scientists at the Armed Forces Institute
of Pathology and at Mount Sinai led some of
the expeditions to dig up
the 1918 victims of Spanish flu and genetically
reconstitute the virus.
Scientists at the University of Washington are
now injecting this virus which killed millions in
into monkeys. What can be the value of
resurrecting and "learning more" about
this long-dormant threat -- compared to the
threat that the research and
recuperation process itself poses?
The Red Cross warns that government
biological weapons programs pose a bigger
threat to the world than bioterrorism.
