Too late to contain research into deadly bird flu strain warn scientists
Edited on Thu Dec-22-11 05:52 AM by Divine Discontent

The US government is unlikely to succeed in
suppressing details of controversial
experiments that have created highly
infectious forms of the bird flu virus, experts
have warned.
Two scientific journals have come under
pressure not to publish findings of research
on the mutant strains of H5N1 over fears
that terrorists could use the information to
create bioweapons.
However, scientists claim that the plea from
the US National Science Advisory Board for
Biosecurity (NSABB) comes too late
because details of the research have already
been shared among flu experts.

why does it feel like we're in Stephen King's apocalyptic novel, "The Stand"? seriously, the only way we lose millions of us is from these foolish geniuses doing us in! Let's make a super-duper strain of bird flu and hope we can keep it contained, oh, we weren't supposed to tell the world's bird flu experts how it's made because bad guys might use that info? Whoops!

2. Prior restraint in the face of First Amendment protections?
Cut the fear bullshit. This isn't a Stephen King novel. There were no "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq.

Try to fucking relax. You'll be fine.
