reports: "The Obama administration is working hard to
curb nuclear threats but failing to address the more urgent and
immediate threat of biological terrorism, a bipartisan commission
created by Congress is reporting today.
The report obtained by USA TODAY cites failures on biosecurity policy by the White House
which the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction
says has left the country vulnerable. The commission, created last year
to address concerns raised by post-9/11 investigations, warns that
anthrax spores released by a crop-duster could "kill more Americans
than died in World War II" and the economic impact could exceed $1.8
trillion in cleanup and other costs."
