Over the last decade, former Navy Secretary Richard J. Danzig, a prominent lawyer, presidential advisor and biowarfare consultant to the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security, has urged the government to counter what he called a major threat to national security.
Terrorists, he warned, could easily engineer a devastating killer germ: a form of anthrax resistant to common antibiotics.
U.S. intelligence agencies have never established that any nation or terrorist group has made such a weapon, and biodefense scientists say doing so would be very difficult.
Nevermind, can you use fear to make a profit?
Danzig did this while serving as a director of a biotech startup that won $334 million in federal contracts to supply just such a drug, a Los Angeles Times investigation found.
Meanwhile, let's cut more food stamps and Medicare.
Oh, and based on the above, you might think Danzig was a "loyal Bushie".
He's not, he has substantial connections to both Clinton and Obama too.
A bipartisan approach to making a profit on panic.
So ignore this scandal and go back to Benghazi.

That explains the Saudi national who brought his pressure cooker on the plane with him. He was obviously going to use it to bioengineer anthrax.
Missed it by that much.

Hey! Cut him some slack. He built that!
"... a prominent lawyer, presidential advisor and biowarfare consultant to the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security...."
