Oklahoma, Kansas border towns leery of planned bioterror test

Should they be worried. In my experience with KSU/KANSAS/DHS => YES

In June '08, Cols/Drs Jerry & Nancy K. Jaax (both KSU employees) wrote a LTE of the Manhattan Mercury about how safe the NBAF would be. They stated they'd worked safely @ the U S Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases. They lived nearby. They walked to work. Their son still lived in that house => EXAMPLES OF HOW SAFE BSL-4 LABS ARE.

In Aug '08, the FBI announced the ANTHRAX MAILER, Dr. Bruce Ivins, had committed suicide before they could arrest him. The ANTHRAX MAILER worked for 19 years @ USAMRIID; the ANTHRAX MAILER had co-authored a study with Dr. Nancy; the ANTHRAX MAILER lived nearby; the ANTHRAX MAILER often walked to work.

The ANTHRAX MAILER is the POSTER CHILD for DUAL USE RESEARCH OF CONCERN:

Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC) is life sciences research that, based on current understanding, can be reasonably anticipated to provide knowledge, information, products, or technologies that could be directly misapplied to pose a significant threat with broad potential consequences to public health and safety, agricultural crops and other plants, animals, the environment, materiel, or national security. The United States Government’s oversight of DURC is aimed at preserving the benefits of life sciences research while minimizing the risk of misuse of the knowledge, information, products, or technologies provided by such research.

There's little doubt the Jaaxes were well aware that they had conducted DURC @ USAMRIID. That the FBI was closing in on the 2nd USAMRIID employee believed to be the Anthrax Mailer; had traced the Anthrax strain to USAMRIID; that their safety & security protocols had turned out to be woefully inadequate & easily circumvented by Dr. Ivins. Yet, they wrote a LTE of the Manhattan Mercury about how safe the NBAF would be. They stated they'd worked safely @ the U S Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases. They lived nearby. They walked to work. Their son still lived in that house => EXAMPLES OF HOW SAFE BSL-4 LABS ARE NOT.

The above comment is in the thread on the KS forum concerning Homeland Security's actions in Kansas @ The National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF). It's no wonder DHS wants to test in Oklahoma; while all their experts sit in Manhattan. Wouldn't want to raise alarm in their backyard!

Oklahomans don't mind that a state law was passed several years ago in which cities can't ban fracking within their city limits. So why should Oklahomans worry about a little chemicals being injected in the air?

Someone needs to tell these fools that Obama isn't president anymore. Except for those parts of Texas and Arizona he conquered back in 2015 as part of "Jade Helm". All those poor people rounded up in FEMA camps in Wal Mart parking lots. It's sad. I was just down there this weekend and the devastation is striking.

Idiotic conspiracy theorists strike again. You'd think that having one of their own as president would chill people out, I guess not.
