Gathering Biological Warfare Storm -- Chapter 1: U.S. Bio-defense Readiness: Thoughts After September 11th   [open pdf - 24KB]

Chapter 1 of "The Gathering Bioligical Warfare Storm" addresses the issue of bioterrorism in the context of the 2001 Anthrax attacks: "The anthrax attacks of 2001 in the United States validated the previous warnings by some experts concerning bioterrorism that it was not a question of 'if,' it was a question of 'when.' Now such bioterrorism is a historical fact, not just a prediction of the future. The anthrax attacks of 2001 may be a taste of things to come[....] It is important that U.S. homeland security and U.S. military officials not learn the wrong lessons from the late 2001 anthrax attacks."
