Israel is the only modern nation that has not signed
the 1972 Biological
Weapons Convention (refusal to
engage in offensive biological warfare, stockpiling, and use of biological
weapons). Israel is also the only modern nation that has signed but not
ratified the 1993 Chemical
Weapons Convention (refusal to produce, stockpile and use chemical
weapons). Should a future biological terror attack hit America or any other
nation, the state of Israel and its citizens will be prime suspects.
The following government and non-government agencies, institutions and organizations also appear to be intimately involved in some aspect of the upcoming bio-terror attack: BARDA (Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority), CDC (Center for Disease Control), Center for Biosecurity of UPMC, EIS (Epidemic Intelligence Service), INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization), NBACC (National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center), NIAID (National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases), NIH (National Institutes of Health), OBFS (Organization of Biological Field Stations), USAMRICD (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense), USAMRIID (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) and the WHO (World Health Organization).
