Questioning the CDC: Is it a Complete Coincidence That China's Only BSL4 Is in Wuhan? -- Audio and Video
April 24, 2020:
"Contrary to claims, the pandemic may have come from a lab — and regardless, it exposes the threat of biowarfare arms race."
"Anthrax War" via Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's "The Passionate Eye"
And now on the Passionate Eye - Who was behind the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States?
Montage: “He's dead. And they can close the case and he can't defend himself.”
“The lone gunman theory fits the needs of the FBI.”
The investigation spans the globe, uncovering the deadly world of germ warfare.
Montage: “It was about killing people and not being able to be found out. Designing assassination weapons, classic spy stuff.”
Are we on the verge of the unthinkable?
Montage: “They could launch biowarfare by means of anthrax anywhere in the world today.”

Dan Rather: On my second trip to Belgrade I was there the night they turned off the lights. Remember, the first time we had a raid that shut down the power, turned off the lights for most of Yugoslavia and that also meant turning off the water because the water needed the power to go. You could not only see it, hear it, but feel it, the change in mood between before they shut off the lights and the power and the next day after they shut off the lights and the power. I said to myself at the time and I wrote in my notebook, "I think this might be the decisive moment in the war." ... I think there's a legitimate question to be asked, "Well, If we had chosen to use this weaponry on the second, third, fourth day or the second or third week of the war, would it have made a difference?" I don't know the answer to that question. I'm here to bear witness, eye witness, that when we did do it, when we did turn off the lights for the first time, there was a distinct change in mood. The mood of the Serbian street and countryside ceased to be one of complete, total, and utter defiance and complete confidence that they would prevail, to something considerably less than that. So make of that what you will. Yes sir.
Sam Husseini: Thank you. I was struck by your comments just now about when you say "we" took out the lights. You seemed to be criticizing the U.S. government for waiting as long as it did to take out the lights and the water facilities. Isn't part of the reason -- I hope -- part of the reason that they waited as long as they did, is that that's a war crime? And it troubles me when you say "we" when your talking about the U.S. government when you're, presumably, a journalist and an independent journalist.
Dan Rather: I would hope not presumably -- I take your point.
Sam Husseini: And why do we -- [laughs] why do we -- seem to only recognize a war crime when it's done by another government and not our own?

JOHN GIBSON, GUEST HOST: Hi, everybody. I'm John Gibson filling in for Bill O'Reilly, who's on assignment. Thanks for watching us tonight.
We've got a packed program for you. The political Hollywood film "The Contender" is released today and the producer and one of the stars say the studio chiefs reedited it to present a pro-Gore agenda. Much ado about now much or Hollywood liberals at it again?
Plus, the presidential race is in a statistical dead heat, but the violence in the Middle East could affect who wins in November. We'll find out how the stakes have changed. And the crisis in the Mideast is our top story tonight. Here are the latest developments.
One Palestinian is dead and 12 injured in clashes today in Hebron. Ninety-eight people have been killed in 16 days of violence. President Clinton is calling for calm while many say the peace process is dead. What will it take to resolve this and have the Palestinians been treated unfairly?
Joining me now from Washington, D.C. is the former media director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Sam Husseini.
Sam, what is the case for the notion that Palestinians have been treated unfairly?
SAM HUSSEINI, INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC ACCURACY: Well, going back to the beginning of the Oslo Accords, if you take a look at it, as the group that I'm currently with, the Institute for Public Accuracy, has been doing, you find that the Oslo Accords were tremendously unfair to the Palestinians and the agreements that they have gone through since then, since the big handshake, the big photo-ops and so on.
They hide the fact that Israel continues to perpetuate its occupation over the Palestinians.
GIBSON: But Sam…
HUSSEINI: All the Israelis have done is withdrawn from some population areas.
GIBSON: Sam, I'm confused. Didn't the Palestinians agree to the Oslo Accords? So who was unfair to who?
HUSSEINI: Well, it was either agree or get nothing. Basically the Palestinians were put a gun to their head saying agree to this piece of paper or you get nothing or you get bombed or you, you know, just stay out of the picture or you get absolutely nothing at all because Israel's got all the weapons.
There's a tremendous disparity -- Israel's got one of the biggest, most powerful militaries in the world. They've got 200 nuclear weapons. And what they are at war, some people are saying against, is a civilian population…
GIBSON: But Sam…
HUSSEINI: … that's unarmed, that all they've got is rocks.
GIBSON: But Sam…
HUSSEINI: So it's an incredibly…
GIBSON: Israel is not going to bomb Gaza with nuclear weapons. That wouldn't…
HUSSEINI: No, but they can bomb other people in the region.
GIBSON: Well, sure, but -- all right, Sam, look…
HUSSEINI: They can determine their dominance of the region.
GIBSON: … how do you expect the American people at large to develop some empathy for the Palestinians when we see in the last couple of days mobs killing a couple of guys…
HUSSEINI: Well, you know, John…
GIBSON: … guys waving their bloody hands out a window in triumph?
HUSSEINI: Right, exactly. Exactly.
GIBSON: How does that build any empathy?
HUSSEINI: Yeah, what doesn't build empathy and I hear the music and I guess they'll show the clips that are getting played, I want to see the clips that haven't gotten played. There have been almost 100 Palestinian civilians, not soldiers -- I'm sorry about those soldiers, those Israeli soldiers getting killed. But what were they doing there? They're occupying soldiers.
GIBSON: They were…
HUSSEINI: They're occupying…
GIBSON: They were there by mistake.
HUSSEINI: They weren't in uniform, John.
GIBSON: They ran to the Palestinian police station for protection.
HUSSEINI: They weren't in uniform, John. You know, they're undercover units, OK? It's not a secret.
GIBSON: Well, Sam, I know that's in dispute. But I mean one picture…
HUSSEINI: So, let's see the pictures…
GIBSON: At least one picture today…
HUSSEINI: Let's see the pictures that we're not seeing…
GIBSON: … showed the guy in uniform being…
HUSSEINI: … of our -- John.
GIBSON: … shoved to the ground.
HUSSEINI: John, the other pictures of our, of American made helicopter gunships hitting civilian targets, of Palestinian children being shot. Neither one of the presidential candidates had the guts to say I condemn Israel's killing almost 100 Palestinian civilians.
