"Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh." - Al Swearingen

Okay, this is just insane: " The Defense Department sold equipment to the public that can be used for making biological warfare agents, according to a draft report by the General Accounting Office. "

The GAO set up a dummy corporation and bought the equipment to start up their own bioweapons lab for 10 cents on the dollar.

Feel safer?

Oh, and here's more from that article:

A congressional source said the GAO front corporation was able to buy evaporator, incubator and centrifuge equipment that can be used to produce biological warfare agents.

It also bought 300 to 400 protective suits required for the production of biological agents, the source said.

Weren't we all worked up about somebody having parts for a centrifuge lately?
