(A depressing video but a depressing truth is far less dangerous than a delightful fallacy, certainly in this case)
A U.S. military facility in Utah mistakenly sent live anthrax bacteria to private laboratories in nine U.S. states, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, adding, however, that there were no known suspected infections or risk to the general public.
The anthrax had been meant to be sent to laboratories in an inactive state as part of U.S. military efforts to develop a field-based test to identify biological threats in the environment, the Pentagon said.
The FBI, the National Counterterrorism Center and Department of Homeland Security have issued a new bulletin warning of increased “near-term” threats against U.S. military bases and events.
The bulletin, obtained by Fox News, advised law enforcement and military personnel to remain vigilant, especially during upcoming national holidays and military events, due to the “heightened threat of attacks” by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, the ultra-radical group that’s been targeted by U.S. forces.
(what is that thing Obama said about “if the winds change in an ugly direction” again?)
Thank you CB Sashenka, M., Wrath of Khan, and all who sent in materials and much more to come shortly.
