Even Hillary Clinton (of all people) gave the United States a heads up about the threat looming in Wuhan, China.
A leaked cable from the State Department dated 2009 shows Hillary (as Secretary of State) warned that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could lead to a “biological weapons proliferation concern.”
The cable, obtained via Wikileaks, was sent from the State Department in June 2009 to all embassies in member nations ahead of the Australia Group plenary session in Paris, September 21-25, 2009. The Australia Group is an international export control forum organized to prevent the spread of technologies and research that could be used in chemical and biological weapons. All Five Eyes nations are members of the group, including the EU, India, Japan, and South Korea. China is not a member of the group.
The cable stated, “We believe it is important to focus on emerging chemical and biological technologies, trends in the trade of CBW-related goods and threats.”Human Events
Continuing from Human Events:
More broadly on the question of China’s biological weapons program, Secretary Clinton’s cable noted:
“The U.S. believes AG members would be interested in any information you can share related to China and North Korea, specifically information related to:
- China’s Institutes of Biological Products (locations in Beijing and Wuhan), to include overhead imagery analysis, if possible.
- Your perceptions of the CBW proliferation activities by Chinese entities.
- Your perceptions of Chinese government efforts to enforce its export control rules.”
You gotta hand it to Hillary – she’s a master at using current events for political expediency.
Of course, since Trump was in office, she calls anyone who questions the Wuhan lab a racist. Situational ethics, you know.
Since the outbreak of COVID19 and questions surrounding the Wuhan lab, Hillary Clinton has never spoken publicly of these concerns, but has attacked people bringing them up as racist, and blamed them for attacks on Asian-Americans, without evidence.Human Events
Funny how Hillary is all quiet about the Wuhan lab now. Maybe it’s because the Democrats are in power?
Nah. It couldn’t be political.
I’m sure Hillary has good intentions for the country.
