The bioterrorism expert responsible for censoring scientific research which could lead to the creation of a devastating pandemic has admitted the information "is going to get out" eventually.
Professor Paul Keim, chairman of the US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, controversially recommended that researchers be stopped from publishing the precise mutations needed to transform the H5N1 strain of birdflu virus into a human-transmissible version.
In an exclusive interview with The Independent, he argued it had been necessary to limit the release of the scientific details because of fears that terrorists may use the information to create their own H5N1 virus that could be spread easily between people.

Title is misleading in that it makes it sound like the deadly strain of flu is already circulating. Good read but not what I thought it was.

This is what happens when people want less government intervention and more free capitalism, its a blank check for people to do what they want.
Funny how since its a life threatening condition, now people want the government to go in and destroy information.

To me this seems to be done porpose. Swine flu was a
trial run and preperation stage it seems. So that exacty
666 years after the black plauge another virus can
be manafested as occult tribute I supose. You have
the MSM CNN admit that they created this virus in the
lab with an excuse.A few of you are aware of numerology and
that seems to be what this is imho. It seems odd they would
announce this which I think the occult requiers or the
Prior acknowlegement which gives them favor or more power
they belive. Anyways if any of this occult theroy is true ya may
wan‘t to start studying the year 666 yaers ago.

Who are they fooling? Our government hates competition. The virus will get out into the general public, many people will become ill, and just in time Big Pharma will come out with a "miracle" vaccine against it.
This is bioweapon engineering at its worst. Who pays for the scientists to spend their days weaponizing....er, I mean, "researching", this potentially devastating virus? Why would any scientist spend their time making this virus more deadly? Find out who funds this research, and you will have your answer.
