I read this book a few years back, and the premise then [what if terrorists were to get a hold of . . . .] was tenuous then, and far more so today.
What if the powers-that-be continue to send out pandemic-level viruses, vaccines, et cetera? Cases in point: [5/28/15] Pentagon sends out to five installations and labs live Anthrax //// over the past decade, Baxter Pharmaceuticals, which has the vaccine contract with the UN's WHO [and still does], has accidentally sent out, on no less than three separate occasions, either contaminated vaccine or similar pandemic-level biopharmaceuticals to thousands of labs across the planet, but on each occasion, thankfully, a lab in France, then Austria and Spain, and on the third occasion, a Czech lab, discovered it and notified WHO! //// Avian flu weaponized by a Dutch institute and at the University of Wisconsin, as if we need that! [Today an article appeared with Bill Gates mention of his worry of a pandemic stricking. Several years ago a report from the Rockefeller Foundation predicted a pandemic striking between 2020 to 2023. The Gates Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation have partnered on many fronts: privatizing education, pushing Monsanto's GMOs in both Africa and America. Sure hope they aren't partnering on pandemics?]
