Obama orders changes to pathogen security practices

The president issued an Executive Order directing what the White House said were "fundamental changes" to the way substances known as Biological Select Agents and Toxins (BSAT) are stored.

The order states that the measures are intended to stop the "misuse, theft, loss, and accidental release," of the deadly agents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this executive order is more than a little interesting, given that it was done on a Friday, with little or no actual publicity on this, right before a major national holiday.
