Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Biological Warfare and the Anti-War Protesters

I linked to an article about this a few weeks ago when it was reported, how six biological-weapons sensors detected a deadly bacteria Francisella tularensis which causes tularemia in Washington DC during the anti-war protest. Salon discusses The Biological alarm in Washington:

On Sept. 24, 2005, tens of thousands of protesters marched past the White House and flooded the National Mall near 17th Street and Constitution Avenue. They had arrived from all over the country for a day of speeches and concerts to protest the war in Iraq. It may have been the biggest antiwar rally since Vietnam.

...six of those machines sucked in trace amounts of deadly bacteria called Francisella tularensis. The government fears it is one of six biological weapons most likely to be used against the United States....

....Salon has spoken to numerous people who were at the Washington Mall on Sept. 24. Four say they got sick days later with symptoms that mirror tularemia.....

This is really scary and you would think the MSM would be investigating and reporting on this story. Read the whole article it convinced me it was not a natural happening.

Also from Sploid:

"Somebody" testing U.S. biological weapons defenses ... on Washington's Mall, on the very day an estimated 300,000 Americans gathered to protest the White House's endless war. If somebody within the government was running an experiment to "see what would happen," were they satisfied that the news media would all but ignore the event if not directed to cause hysteria?

Did Washington 'test' bioweapons on D.C. war protesters?
