[LFC Comments by T. Paine: Thanks to our lobbyist Italian John for this disturbing information that should cause our readers to sit up and say “Wow”. Have you ever heard of Fort Detrick or BSAT? Neither had we…Here is an Inspector General Report for the Department of Defense dated April 27, 2016 detailing some very disturbing news about Ft. Detrick.]
Here is the introduction to their findings:
The Department of Defense maintains a Chemical and Biological Defense Program as part of its layered, integrated defense against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats. Research using biological agents and toxins takes place in military and civilian laboratories, and is critical for the development of public health and medical tools, such as vaccines, drugs, and sensors, to protect both the civilian and military populations.
Because these biological agents and toxins are inherently dangerous to laboratory workers and the general public, Congress has enacted legislation to provide oversight of all laboratories that use these pathogens.
Biological Select Agents and Toxins (BSAT) is the term used to designate biological agents and toxins that could pose a severe threat to public health and safety, animal and plant health, or animal and plant products.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulate the possession, use, and transfer of BSAT under the Select Agent Regulations, and jointly enforce the Federal Select Agent Program through the HHS Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) at the CDC’s Division of Select Agents and Toxins in Atlanta, Georgia.
The CDC maintains a list of BSAT that might be harmful to humans, while APHIS determines which BSAT may be harmful to animal or plant health. The combined list currently numbers more than 60; the total number can change because the list is reviewed biennially as biological materials are added or taken off the list.
On the BSAT list are biological materials such as anthrax, the Ebola virus, plague (Yersinia pestis), avian influenza virus, smallpox (Variola major) virus, and the SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] virus.
Results in Brief Evaluation of DoD Biological Safety and Security Implementation
April 27, 2016
The objectives of this project were to:
1) assess the uniform application of biosafety and biosecurity policy and directives, plans, orders, and guidance across DoD Component laboratories that were conducting research using biological select agents and toxins (BSAT) and
2) evaluate DoD biological safety and security oversight at laboratories; DoD Component biological safety and security compliance with Federal, DoD, and Service policy; and DoD and Component actions on recommendations from previous Government Accountability Office, Defense Science Board, and Defense Health Board reports.
We found that:
• DoD had not maintained biosafety and biosecurity program management, oversight, and inspections of its BSAT laboratories according to applicable Federal regulations.
• BSAT laboratories in Military Services were inspected according to different guidance, standards, and procedures, risking dangerous lapses in biosafety practices.
• Lack of coordinated oversight of DoD laboratories led to multiple, missing, and duplicative inspections, and, therefore, an excessive administrative burden that could interfere with scientific research performance.
• Inspection quality varied as inspection team members sometimes lacked necessary training or sufficient experience and expertise, or a combination of each.
• DoD did not require that deficiencies identified by inspections were tracked and remain corrected after they were initially closed.
• DoD lacked a single coordinating entity to oversee and manage biosafety and biosecurity deficiencies in high risk BSAT laboratories.
As a result, DoD BSAT laboratories have:
• used protocols that were not validated for their intended use,
• been inspected irregularly or not at all, and
• had significant deficiencies and vulnerabilities that were not corrected by DoD management.
Consequently, the health and safety of the public was put at risk of inadequate protection from exposure to biological pathogens.
DoD leadership has taken actions to address the anthrax biosafety protocol failures identified at Dugway Proving Ground in May 2015, including those based on the recommendations of a Comprehensive Review Committee established by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics. Several of the DoD leadership actions based on recommendations from the Review Committee may be difficult to implement as they appear contradictory to oversight community standards.
Interesting that the Army failed to notify Congress email dated August 14, 2019:
U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin and Representative David Trone (all D-Md.) are demanding answers from the U.S. Army about the recent cease and desist order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, Md. The lawmakers have requested detailed information about USAMRIID’s specific deficiencies and how long the Army has been aware of them.
The Army never notified members of Congress of the CDC’s adverse order on July 15th, and are seeking an explanation why they did not provide formal notification to them, and why notification to local government officials was delayed.
Here is an article about the U.S. funding the Wuhan lab:
Excerpt from the article:
“Unfortunately, from the public’s perspective, reports about the connection between the NIH and WIV are at risk of feeding conspiracy theory fires. With some Chinese officials already blaming the United States for the pandemic and the Trump administration appearing intent on blaming China in return without divulging any decisive evidence, it is quite difficult, even for experts, to develop a fully-informed opinion about what exactly happened. And therein lies a dangerous problem: unanswered questions can only deepen peoples’ suspicions about science.”
The lack of transparency by the legacy media (formerly known as the mainstream media), coupled with the lies, deceptions and betrayals by our federal, state and local institutions cause citizens, those that still have their critical thinking skills in tact, to question everything and everyone.
One thing of which we are certain is the Covid-19(84) virus was manufactured in a lab and not through zoonosis (transmitted from animals to humans), or people eating bat soup in a Chinese wet market.
For now, Americans are free to believe what they want…they are free to wear their masks forever…they are free to continue to be afraid of a flu virus…they are free to take the vaccine…they are free to give up their freedoms and liberties for their safety and security.
Since we see the alarming rise of secular humanism in our society, the statement made on October 11, 1798 by one of the nation’s founders, John Adams, rings so true in today’s environment:
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.“…John Adams
We also think Patrick Henry “hit the target” with his statement on March 23, 1775:
“Give me liberty, or give me death”.
To the millions of patriots finally waking up – “We shall never surrender our freedoms!“
