Military halts shipment of deadly toxins

E-mail Print PDF

Military leaders have suspended some activities at biological research laboratories to review safety rules for some of the world's deadliest germs and toxins, including how they are shipped through FedEx and other civilian carriers.

The Army has six, Navy five and Air Force two labs where biomedical research is done to support counterterrorism efforts, research protection for the armed forces and keep track of infectious diseases across the globe. Employees work with a range of dangerous materials such as anthrax and germs that cause Avian flu and encephalitis.

TVNL Comment: Who represents a threat to you? Who is developing bio-warfare weapons? Who creates viruses and bacteria that can potentially escape and perhaps kill us all? America, that's who. And these programs were stepped up dramatically under the Bush/Cheney/PNAC administration.
