We have had the better part of a year to get ready for swine flu. And yet, the response to the pandemic H1N1 outbreak has been lousy. What would happen if a hostile power launched a large-scale bioterrorism attack against us with no warning?
The Obama administration bears much of the blame for the fear the public and health care workers have of the swine flu vaccine. The facts do not square with the fear.
Numbers of sick and dead are mounting..At least 129 have died in the United State from swine flu. Eighteen children died last week. Public health officials estimate that at least 1,000 adults have died so far from swine flu in this country alone. Hundreds have faced life-threatening hospitalizations. Millions more have been terribly sickened and lost time from work.

Opinion: Swine flu response dismal at best - Breaking Bioethics- msnbc.com

Don't worry, we're prepared. What do you think all those FEMA camps are for?
