Blowjob for Research on Bioterror at Fort Detrick

Posted in Bioterrorism at 2:47 pm by George Smith

The next post is only made as another illustration on how almost no thought goes into the media’s coverage of bioterror research in this country.

In fact, one might say that only anti-thought is allowed, a desire to see only people who are groupies to the scientists at work in the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center lab.

Reports the Frederick newspaper:

Today’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show will give the national audience a look at something most local residents have not even seen: the Department of Homeland Security’s containment lab at Fort Detrick.
Two weeks ago, Mehmet Oz and his production team got a sneak peek at the yet-to-open National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center lab. Today’s episode features a walk-through of the $147-million facility and its two core missions: threat characterization to determine how the U.S. is susceptible to bioterrorism and biocrime, as well as bioforensics to track down the culprit in the aftermath of an attack.

Oz wrote that he was shocked to hear there are people who would want to harm the country in such a terrible way, but he said his show serves as a tribute to the Homeland Security employees working to prevent that.

In the television broadcast, taped at the NBACC in Ft. Detrick, there is not a single mention of Bruce Ivins. Not one!

And it’s the central question hovering over the laboratory — one that tells us the world’s most successful bioterrorist came from Ft. Detrick. And everyone at the NBACC surely knows it, in spades.

The promotional show is beyond brainless. At one point Mehmet Oz asks a question of the head NBACC boffin, Patrick Fitch.

Fitch is an employee of the Umbrella Corporation, aka Battelle.

Oz: “Would you, personally, ever make bioweapons?”

Fitch: “Absolutely no.”

“Dr. Fitch is adamant that he and his bosses at the Department of Homeland Security are ushering in a new era of transparency,” it is said.

It is utter intelligence-insulting shit without even the pretense of serious discussion.

    Let me quote 1984
    Who controls the past controls the future.
    Who controls the present controls the past.

    And also

    “Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”

    The same seem to apply to some sort of media language.
    G.W. was indeed a brilliant writer. More here. Better even go and get a copy of “1984” (possibly printed in China).

    Big Brother is watching you.

    Big Win for Terrorists and US National Security Business…

    The “don’t touch my junk” story furnishes a catalyst to focus public loathing for big parts of the national security apparatus. And, of course, its buzzing devices and technicians, people often afflicted with normal human bad judgment. Rude treatmen…
