I suppose that's fair enough. But you might have provided a source you consider valid... eh?

Here is a valid source:

Also 50% die if they do not receive antibiotics. The incubation is 2-6 days. And according to the story it took hours for them to die. I doubt it is plague. Sounds like it is chemical.

Has anyone considered this may be an attack BY US???? We could have slipped this agent (bio or chem) in clandestinely as a weapon to wipe out an entire cell. (Think small-pox blankets to the Indians)

did we not declare war on terror,,,so cia operatives know of this base and what was going on,,, why wasn't it blown up or at the minimum some undercovers sent in and slowly kill them off
this stuff cracks me up,,, we seem to have a wait and see attitude
leading me to think ,,sometimes,,,,maybe they do want this ongoing struggle against terror

Maybe because it was in Algeria, not Afghanistan or Iraq. We don't have the right to throw bombs into any country we wish.

Yeah, given that both of those I consider to be tabloids (not just the Sun), I'm having difficulty believing much, if any, of this.

They died within hours/minutes?
The plague doesn't kill that quickly, it takes days.

Intelligence officials, and unconfirmed reports.

I'll believe it when I see names, and confirmations.

Here’s an interesting article that puts the story and the source into perspective. Pretty much a slam dunk.

Yeah, the U.S. has no right to bomb Islamic freedom fighters in any country no matter how serious the threat is, even if it kills millions of Americans. Have to follow the rules.
