Back in 2008, I had the opportunity to be briefed on a report that was distributed to the Department of Homeland Security that projected a possible nuclear or terror threat on the Unites States ‘homeland’ in 2013. This was not some clandestine or exclusive report. It was available to journalists and, even though I was not on the air at the time, my online presence and public appearances afforded me the ability to receive some information about this possible threat on the United States.
The report was from the Commission on the Prevention of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism and they were quite clear that there was a definite danger of a biological attack in 2013
I had prepared several Ground Zero shows both online and when I presented the Ground Zero Lounge show called “Toughening Our Emotional Skin.” The show focused primarily on preparedness and the possibility of isolated bio or nerve gas attacks that could prompt the government to reinstate the Model State Health Powers Act.
This act was first issued after the anthrax attacks on the United States outlining what powers the government would be allowed to have in the wake of a bio attack. The powers would include; search and seizure, forced medical treatments and inoculations and mass detainment if necessary to contain a contagion.
Elected officials were also briefed that in such an event, funeral homes, cemeteries and mortuaries would be overwhelmed should millions of Americans suddenly die in a tragic event. There must also be allowances for survivors of such an event.
There was a need proposed at the time for a health care database that would be easily accessible to authorities to weed out anyone that may be a carrier of a disease or a contagion. There were plans to have isolation detainment areas in airports and pharmacy lounges that could be used as “quick use” doctor’s facilities that can be used for inoculations.
When these types of facilities popped up in Wal-Mart stores there really weren’t any detainment facilities that I was aware of being set up in airports.
I figured that the expediency had died down and the thought of a bio-nerve gas attack on the United States had also reached its nadir that the reports were much ado about nothing.
However my interest has been renewed in the subject because of the massive pig slaughter reported in China while at the same time there were questions as to whether or not Syria had engaged in nerve gas attacks on its own people.
It is now apparent that more than pigs are dying in China. Now ducks are also victims of some cull and still the Chinese government in not gibing too many answers to the press.
The BBC reports that more than 1,000 duck carcasses were pulled from the Nanhe river in China’s Pengshan County in the southwest province of Sichuan, Liang Weidong told China National Radio on Sunday. The ducks, found inside more than 50 woven bags floating in the river, have since been disinfected and buried in a designated area. Authorities also emphasized the dead ducks pose no threat to livestock or the safety of local drinking water, state news agency Xinhua reports, but the cause of death remains unknown.
