One thought on “Word On The Street

    In equal measure I wouldn’t trust Dan Sabbagh or any other Guardian journalist to honestly attempt to get to the bottom of what happened either.

    The Guardian article reads like yet another press release for the Five Eyes network – the kind of thing which has been going on ever since Kathy Viner became chief editor in the aftermath of the Snowden revelations and they then got rid of any journalists who would cover the security services and military in an adversarial way.

    Sure, we know we can’t take anything Trump says at face value, but why no mention anywhere in the article that highly dangerous “gain of function” experimentation (which involves modifying animal viruses so that they are transmissible to humans) is being carried out at Wuhan and at numerous labs around the world (often as part of a military research program)? The fact this is going on at all significantly raises the threat of pandemics breaking out. There’s been various reported safety breaches at different labs over the years.

    The article could have at least mentioned that last year, the US ‘National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases’, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, actually gave millions in funding to scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses. Surely that warrants more scrutiny?
