Big Time Bio Oops

As just another symbol of "who's watching the hen house," it seems that our government has lost track of which labs are experimenting with deadly and contagious germs. When asked by the GAO (Government Accountability Office) as to whether they knew of all labs conducting tests, all twelve (including the FBI!) answered NO.

The Associated Press also reported that since 2003 there have been "more than 100 accidents and missing shipments."
