Turning Ebola into a strain which would be airborne is great stuff for TV but in reality is another story. Thomas most antibiotics do not work on such things as anthrax in the first place. Your reference to a "retired" military doctor is not impressive. Perhaps you have some other reference which you can share with us who's credentials are more valid.

I did read the piece on Ebola but I couldn't find where the doctor had said it could be weaponised.As I understand it in very simple terms the virus is too heavy to be an effective aerosole.Even if it could be weaponised it would have to be the result of a sophisticated process one that realistically only the USA with their money,resources,and experienced scientist could achieve.
Ebola has not been eliminated in the same way Smallpox has so pretty well any state could have got hold of a sample in the last 20 years but the technical problems to create an effective bio-weapon(Other than the modern day equivalent of catapulting a plague victim over city walls)seems insumountable to any but the most technically advance state.
I am definately not an expert on this sort of thing and so I am very open to any imformation better imformed posters may have.

I'm most worried about a human bomb.
if people are willing to blow themselves up I'm sure they're willing to inject themselves with a virus and spend their last few days wondering around america spitting in coffee cups, bleading into water tanks and having sex with prostitutes...
Thats certainly how I'd infect the US if I wanted to, far easier than trying to get through customs with 2 CO2 canisters full of anthrax...
