"The Defense Department admitted it sent deadly spores to three countries and 12 states—and confessed it doesn’t know who else received the lethal bacteria."
WHO'S SHOCKED BY THIS LATEST PENTAGON SNAFU?
NOT THE TEA ROOM!
IT SEEMS THE PENTAGON, CAUGHT WITH ITS PANTS AROUND ITS ANKLES YET AGAIN, IS HAVING TO COME (A LITTLE) CLEAN ON THE FACTS THAT, NOT ONLY DID IT INDEED SHIP LIVE ANTHRAX VIRUS TO LABS ACROSS THE GLOBE FOR MANY YEARS, IT REALLY CAN'T SAY JUST YET TO HOW MANY LABS....NOR WHERE, NOR WHAT HAPPENED AFTERWARD!
NOTHING NEW HERE...
BUT LET'S HAVE A LOOK ANYWAY.
THE PENTAGON SAYS IT TRULY THOUGHT ALL THAT ANTHRAX WAS DEAD, NOT ALIVE.
THOSE WHO BELIEVE THIS, STAND ON YOUR HEAD AND WIGGLE YOUR EARS...
I SEE NO FEET IN THE AIR...
YEAH, IT'S ALL FUN AND GAMES AT THE PENTAGRAM, I MEAN PENTAGON, UNTIL SOMEBODY DROPS DEAD FROM A LIVE VIRUS.
AND DIDN'T WE ARREST SOME FOLKS BACK A FEW YEARS AGO FOR EVEN PRETENDING TO SEND LIVE ANTHRAX VIRUS TO OTHER PEOPLE?
IS THE PENTAGON GOING DOWN FOR THIS ONE, MAYBE, FINALLY?
NO, "TO INFINITY AND BEYOND".
THE PENTAGON IS IMMUNE TO PROSECUTION FOR ANYTHING, PERIOD, THE END.
WIPE OUT MOST OF THE POPULATION OF PLANET EARTH?
WAY TO GO, PENTAGRAMMERS!
EXPOSE UNSUSPECTING, INNOCENT LAB WORKERS (WELL, MAYBE INNOCENT) TO A TERRIBLE VIRUS AND MAYBE AN AGONIZING DEATH?
WHY ASK FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR WICKED GOVERNMENT EXPERIMENTS WHEN YOU CAN JUST CREATE AN "ACCIDENTAL MISTAKE/ERROR/UH-OH!", RIGHT BOYZ?
THINK OF THE MONEY THAT SAVED!
WE CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON THE PENTAGON TO SCREW WAY, WAY UP!
June 3, 2015, YE OLDE WALL STREET JOURNAL
An additional 400 batches from all four military labs that handle live anthrax are being tested, officials said, and if those are found to be live, the number of outside labs that received suspect samples could grow sharply."
THAT'S A LOT OF ANTHRAX!
WHAT ARE YOU FELLOWS DOING WITH SO MUCH OF THAT STUFF, PENTA-DUDES?
NO, REALLY, WHY SO MUCH?
TELL US, WILL YOU...PRETTY PLEASE?
WITH COCAINE SUGAR ON TOP?
I KNOW YOU LIKE YOUR "BLOW", YOU CRAZY GUYS!
“We expect this number may rise,” said Robert Work, the deputy defense secretary.
GROW BY HOW MUCH, BOB, BOBERT?
ANY IDEA AT ALL?
Currently, 31 lab workers who may have come in contact with the anthrax are undergoing post-exposure treatment as a precaution. “We know of no risk to the general public from these samples,” Mr. Work said.
SWEET, THAT'S NICE.
ISN'T THAT NICE, FOLKS?
I FEEL SOOOO MUCH BETTER NOW, DON'T YOU?
"BLESSED ASSURANCE" AND ALL THAT...
"Officials wouldn’t release the names of the recipient labs but said they were in 17 states, the District of Columbia and three other countries: Canada, Australia and South Korea."
SO WHAT, THE WORLD HAS TO GUESS?
"The labs that are believed to have erroneously received live anthrax samples have all been contacted by both the military and the Centers for Disease Control, officials said. Labs have been instructed to send the samples back to the CDC for testing."
I HAD TO PICK MYSELF UP OFF THE FLOOR ON THAT PIECE OF "WISDOM"...HANG ON A SEC, LET ME STOP LAUGHING...
IT'S NOT FUNNY, REALLY, BUT IT'S LAUGH OR CRY.
"HEY, JOE! DROP THAT LIVE ANTHRAX BACK IN THE NEAREST MAILBOX TO US, WILL YA', BUDDY, AND, UMMM, SORRY ABOUT THAT.
ARE YOU THERE, JOE?
IMAGINE IT, CADETS...TRY TO IMAGINE IT.
HERE'S ANOTHER "ZINGER" FROM THE PENTAGRAM PEOPLE:
"Frank Kendall, the Pentagon official charged with leading the lab review, said that officials must not “maximize or minimize the degree of concern.”
SO, WTH DOES THAT MEAN?
NOT MAXIMIZE, NOT MINIMIZE?
JUST FOR FUN, LET'S DO AN MRI SCAN OF OLD FRANKIE'S SKULL, SEE IF THERE'S A REAL BRAIN IN IT!
IN FACT, LET'S DO THE WHOLE CROWD UP AT THE FIVE-POINTED BUILDING!
IT'S PAST TIME WE KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY BRAINS ON STAFF UP THERE!
THAT'S COMFORTING, ISN'T IT, FELLOW CITIZENS?
I MEAN, HOW COMFORTING IS THAT?
SHOULD WE "DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY"?
AW, HELL, WHY BOTHER?
IT'S THE PENTAGON, AFTER ALL, HEADED BY THE "gods" FROM, OH, MAYBE MOUNT OLYMPUS, OR SOMEPLACE MORE COOL THAN THAT?
LET 'EM PLAY...
BOYZ WILL BE BOYZ...
EXCUSE ME WHILE I CALL MY POST OFFICE AND TELL THEM TO HOLD MY MAIL FOR THE NEXT DECADE OR TWO...
