Swine Flu May Be Human Error; WHO Investigates Claim

The World Health Organization is investigating a claim by an Australian researcher that the swine flu virus circling the globe may have been created as a result of human error.

Adrian Gibbs, 75, who collaborated on research that led to the development of Roche Holding AG’s Tamiflu drug, said in an interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers use to make vaccines. Gibbs said he came to his conclusion as part of an effort to trace the virus’s origins by analyzing its genetic blueprint.

“One of the simplest explanations is that it’s a laboratory escape,” Gibbs said in an interview with Bloomberg Television today. “But there are lots of others.”

Anyone who discounts the likelihood of the swine flu virus originating in a laboratory should wake up to themselves. Logically, the potential for an artificial source MUST be seriously considered as well as a natural point of origin. Also, because of the past history of deliberate bio weapons releases by the US military, a deliberate release of this pathogen must be factored int the equation.
