An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick’s infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for, Army officials said yesterday, raising concerns that officials wouldn’t know whether dangerous toxins were missing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/17/AR2009061703271.html
You got to be shitting me, right? No.
The probe began in February 2009, just months before Swine Flu A/H1N1 came to the public eye and a Pandemic Status issued earlier this month. Coincidence?
When the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center at Fort Detrick is fully operational in March[ sic 2009], about 150 scientists in the lab will be tasked with protecting the country from a bioterrorist attack through prevention or containment. Another goal is to allow investigators to fingerprint biological agents such as viruses and bacteria, quickly tracing their source and catching the offender. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/22/AR2008102203082.html?sid=ST2009061703604
Visit Ft. Detrick on line , http://www.detrick.army.mil/ whose motto is, “We Care.” Apparently not enough to care about locking down the world’s worst viruses where they have their own threat status currently at :
Applies when there is an increased general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel or facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable.
Unpredictable? Who would have predicted loosing track of up to 9,000 vials of who knows what kind of viruses?
Among them the Ebola virus, anthrax bacteria and botulinum toxin, and less lethal agents such as Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus and the bacterium that causes tularemia. Most of them, forgotten inside freezer drawers, hadn’t been used in years or even decades. Officials said some serum samples from hemorrhagic fever patients dated to the Korean War. The overstock and the previous inaccuracy of the database raised the possibility that someone could have taken a sample outside the lab with no way for officials to know something was missing. http://cotocrew.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/msm-inventory-uncovers-9200-more-pathogens/
Several FredCoBio companies won funding to support product development activities with Ft. Detrick scientists according to- http://fredcobio.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/ft-detrick-tech-transfer-funds/. Considering most tests are with virulent pathogens we would hope that stricter security is in place. With Obama on the heels of computerizing all health records, just maybe he can order someone to keep track of little things like viruses who research is paid for with our tax dollars.
After Fort Detrick anthrax researcher Bruce E. Ivins killed himself in July, the FBI announced that he alone was responsible for anthrax mailings that killed five people and sickened 17 others in 2001.
Dr. Ayaad Assaad an Egyptian-born toxicologist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the original suspect does not believe Ivins killed himself. ” You also have to tie into this the large numbers of dead microbiologists that have appeared since around the summer before these events, when the New York Times revealed the existence of the covert anthrax weapons programs run by the CIA, and that too is in the public record.” http://noworldsystem.com/2008/09/14/original-anthrax-patsy-says-ivins-didn%e2%80%99t-kill-himself/
Dead Microbiologists include: [http://www.rense.com/general39/death.htm]
“Dr. Benito Que, a cell biologist working on infectious diseases like HIV, who was found comatose outside his laboratory at the Miami Medical School. He later died. Police say the attack was possibly the result of a mugging.”
Dr. Wiley, A Harvard biologist and expert on how the human immune system fights off infections and had recently investigated such dangerous viruses as AIDS, Ebola, herpes and influenza . His body was found after more than a month since his rental car was left parked on a bridge over the Mississippi River at hydro-electric plant in Louisiana 300 miles downstream.
Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, a former microbiologist for Biopreparat, the Soviet biological-weapons production facility was found dead.
Dr. Robert M. Schwartz was found murdered in Leesberg, Virginia. Dr. Schwartz was a well-known DNA sequencing researcher. He founded the Virginia Biotechnology Association where he worked on DNA sequencing.
The head of the microbiology sub-faculty of the Russian State Medical University, Victor Korshunov has been killed.
Dr. Tanya Holzmayer, a pioneering Russian born genomic scientist who had co-invented a tool that has helped find hundreds of molecular targets to combat cancer and HIV was found shot dead by a former colleague .
David Wynn-Williams, an award-winning microbiologist died when he was struck by a vehicle while out jogging. In 2000 he was appointed leader of the Antarctic Astrobiology Project, which explores the effects of environmental stress at the limits of life on Earth
Are these scientists a patsy in a larger cover up? A time line of 46 mysterious deaths of scientists continues here http://www.stevequayle.com/dead_scientists/dead.scientists.chron.html and 86 dead scientists listed here http://theoneall.blogspot.com/2009/05/now-88-dead-scientists-and.html
It is not only microbiologists who are dying in extraordinary circumstances. On June 13, 2009 the carcass of Indian famous nuclear scientist Lokanathan Mahalingam found from Kali River. The scientist had been mysteriously disappeared from the Kaiga Atomic Power Station on June 8, 2009. The Kaiga plant is located near one of the biggest naval bases, Project Seabird. http://pakistanfront.blogspot.com/2009/06/abducted-indian-nuke-scientist-found.html
“Lack of oversight and runaway spending are exacerbated by the Bush administration’s disrespect for the internationally-recognized Biological Weapons Convention. In short, reduced pressure on weapons labs to issue declarations and allow inspections means less accountability – and more opportunities for secrecy and abuse.” http://www.heatherwokusch.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=67
Indeed, does it take a genius to put two-and-two together?

A British nuclear expert who fell from the 17th floor of a United Nations building did not commit suicide and may have been hurled to his death, says a doctor who carried out a second post-mortem examination. Timothy Hampton, 47, a scientist involved in monitoring nuclear activity, was found dead last week at the bottom of a stairwell in Vienna.

Open wide, say ahhh and check out these posts on the A/H1N1 Swine Flu from Ahrcanum, where the conspiracy spreads as fast as the virus itself.
