Not sure why Fauci continues to obfuscate about the origins of the virus… But we can all speculate why. It is nice to see Dr. Redfield not going for Fauci’s BS.
“Former CDC Director Fires Back at Fauci’s ‘Natural’ Claim”
The Epoch Times. July 26, 2022
“I’m disappointed in the [National Institutes of Health] for not leading an objective evaluation from the beginning,” Redfield (former director of the CDC) told the outlet. “I think it really is antithetical to the science where they took a very strong position that people like myself who are somehow conspiratorial just because we have a different scientific hypothesis.”
A reason why the Wuhan lab leak theory has not been fully recognized, Redfield argued, is due to the politicization of the pandemic response and the pressure that was heaped on scientists who sought objective approaches while studying the origins of COVID-19.
“I’ve been very disappointed in the scientific community led by [National Institutes of Health] that has really dug their heels in from the beginning to try to minimize any of us that have a different hypothesis,” he said.
In contrast to what Redfield is saying above, right on time for election season, we now have a concerted propaganda push to craft the narrative that the US Government was not complicit in the development of SARS-CoV-2. Note that the conclusions are far from definitive- “Likely” according to the authors. This article in Science has been followed by a concerted PR push, which is often the best way to detect propaganda.
Understanding the circumstances that lead to pandemics is important for their prevention. Here, we analyze the genomic diversity of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) early in the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. We show that SARS-CoV-2 genomic diversity before February 2020 likely comprised only two distinct viral lineages, denoted A and B. Phylodynamic rooting methods, coupled with epidemic simulations, reveal that these lineages were the result of at least two separate cross-species transmission events into humans. The first zoonotic transmission likely involved lineage B viruses around 18 November 2019 (23 October–8 December), while the separate introduction of lineage A likely occurred within weeks of this event. These findings indicate that it is unlikely that SARS-CoV-2 circulated widely in humans prior to November 2019 and define the narrow window between when SARS-CoV-2 first jumped into humans and when the first cases of COVID-19 were reported. As with other coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 emergence likely resulted from multiple zoonotic events.
From CNN (notice the wording – “New Studies Agree” (With whom? Fauci?):
And from Axios:
If you read these various articles, you will find that the actual text demonstrates that the issue is far from resolved.
Now, it isn’t like the USA doesn’t have a history of experimenting with biological and chemical weaponry… as long as it is legal, of course. So, when Dr. Fauci makes claims about the origin of the virus, it may be best to look to the past to see just what the USG has done in the past and is capable of doing.
So, here is some “old news,” that may be “new news” to most.
A 2002 CBS news articles on release of documents relating to the US bio-weapons testing during the 1960s is fascinating and more than a little scary. I have included the whole article – as I think that alerting Americans that such testing happened is very important. Mainly because I have no reason to suspect (insert sarcasm) that from time to time, they haven’t continued with such testing or had a surrogate (such as Israel) continue (as Israel has never signed the Biological weapons Convention).
