1. What DOD doesn't like the smell they've created?

4. Hmmm? Maybe it's not the smell they're trying to keep in.
Tinfoil hat??? Does the DoD anticipate a need to package biologically "hot" bodies?

6. I question that second article.
<snip>

The 1918 Spanish flu that killed half a million people in the United States travelled from Europe to this country in about six weeks. That was before air flight and mass transportation.

<end snip>

The Spanish flu started outside of Ft. Reilly, KS and was spread by troop and material movements during WW1. It's called the Spanish flu, because the Spain had a free press & reported it first.

"The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague In History" by John M. Barry is a great read on the subject.
