Smallpox Drill at White House?

Chimp gets out of harm's way. He flew off to Camp David for the weekend, in the meantime his cabinet members had a smallpox drill. Why? Are the thugs going to drop smallpox on us next?
Unfortunately, some Americans have never been vaccinated. Many in the U.S. have "some" immunity from older vaccinations but if an epidemic hit, booster shots would be required for many of us with possible fatalities from the vaccine itself, also the supply is limited. So what is the real or imagined dire emergency of which we have not been informed to make this a priority with our fearless leaders? Why would there be a sudden outbreak of smallpox? What do they know that we don't know...and when did they know it? We know the virus is in U.S. and Russian labs but we don't know where else.Smallpox Drill Held at White House Complex

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Cabinet officials gathered at the White House complex on Saturday for a drill simulating a smallpox attack against the United States. The four-hour exercise to test the government's response plans was conducted by Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns and Centers of Disease Control Director Dr. Julie Gerberding and others. The World Health Organization reported the disease was eradicated in 1980. But there are fears that smallpox could be used by terrorists as a biological weapon.

The United States ended routine childhood vaccination against smallpox in 1971. But the Bush administration, about 15 months after the attacks of the Sept. 11, 2001, ordered some military personnel vaccinated and recommended shots for front-line health care workers.President Bush, who was spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland, did not participate in the exercise at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House.Saturday's simulation was the second drill to check the nation's readiness for catastrophic attacks. Federal officials said that a similar rehearsal in December for pandemic flu showed that saving lives and containing economic damage would require more planning in local communities and increased production of vaccines and medications.


Instead of holding drills why doesn't the White House propose an educational outreach program for those people who don't understand or fear vaccinations? Oh, that's right, this is the ANTI-education misadminstration. As usual the disconnected and uninterested thug-in-chief is vacating and not a participant in this all-important drill. Spotted Dick is in his bunker or off shooting an acquaintance. If Hurricane Katrina is any indication of how well this administration learns from its drills (Hurricane Pam simulation) then we should all be shaking in our boots.

The next question is who owns stock in smallpox vaccine and who benefits from an outbreak of it? Rumsfeld just made a $5 million profit on Tamiflu after all the Avian Flu hoopla. I expect to find smallpox vaccine connections within the cabal. Fear. That's all these monsters deal in...fear and more fear.
