Apprently the Anthrax strain used in the U.S attacks has been traced
to USAMRID, a tragic attempt to raise goverment funding?
What do the rest of the group think.
What worries me is just how easy it is to get hold of virulent
strains, and not just from labs dealing with human pathology,
veterinary labs would have far more access to potentially lethal bugs,
I know there is a focus on security upgrades and accountability, but
there are plently of other bugs that could cause serious problems to
the global community if the wrong people get hold of them, just look
at some of the avian influenza strains originating in china...
