Sounds like the biggest threat of bio warfare comes from the govt themselves!
Is there really no threat, or is it to calm the populace ....
Bubonic Bacteria Believed Missing from Texas Lab
Wed January 15, 2003 01:37 PM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - About 30 vials that possibly contain samples of the bacteria that causes bubonic plague were reported missing from a lab at
Texas Tech University in Lubbock, a law enforcement official said on Wednesday.
The official had few details but said the FBI was trying to determine what had happened to the vials at the Texas facility about 330 miles west of
"Apparently there are about 30 missing," he said.
But the official emphasized that the plague believed to be in the vials could not be used as a weapon of mass destruction. The vials could possibly
kill one person but not a large group of people.
