Talk about a box of fail.
Now the Pentagon has admitted that at least 192 labs in the past ten years have received shipments of live anthrax from the Army. That’s almost four times as many labs as it admitted to back in June. “Major protocol problems,” doesn’t begin to cover it.
“The agency said on Monday that the list now includes labs in all 50 states, as well as Guam, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Washington, DC. The labs received live anthrax because of ineffective sterilization methods for killing the deadly bacteria. Seven foreign countries also received the shipments, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the UK, according to the Department of Defense’s Laboratory Review site,” RT reported.
Wow. How many times can something happen and still be deemed an “accident” anyway?
