Obama Encourages "Swine Flu as Bioweapon" Kookiness

"The latest bioterrorism attack by the New World Order is likely a beta test," according to the conspiracy website "New World Liberty." It continues, "Yes, it is a bioterrorism attack. It was a hybrid strain created from human, swine, and bird flu from North America, Europe, and Asia. It was created in a laboratory. This doesn't happen in nature."

Actually it's happened in nature numerous times; but these fruitloops can take comfort that Pres. Barack Obama has proposed financing production of a swine flu vaccine in part with $3 billion set aside for defenses against biological attacks.

Fortunately, opposition is bipartisan. "Using BioShield funds for flu preparedness will severely diminish the nation's efforts to prepare for [weapons of mass destruction] events and will leave the nation less, not more, prepared." So stated chairman of The Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, former senator Bob Graham (D-Fla.), and vice chairman, former senator James M. Talent (R-Mo.), in a letter sent yesterday to Pres. Obama.

Aside from the "weapon" aspect, "mass destruction" hardly seems applicable to a virus that to date has killed about as many Americans who die every three hours from seasonal flu during flu season.

But the konspiracy kooks must feel vindicated. Now if only Obama would speak out against that pyramid with the eyeball on the dollar bill . . .
