The idea that COVID-19 originated from a biolab rather than accidentally due to Wuhan eating habits was initially censored and denounced as being “against the science”. In reality, there were pitched battles going on among scientists (as is healthy and normal) over the likely origins and among agencies as well.
Here’s how that split looked earlier this year.
While the National Intelligence Council and four unnamed agencies assessed that natural exposure to an infected animal was the most likely scenario for the first human infection, the Department of Energy and FBI’s assessment was that a laboratory-associated incident was more likely the cause.
Meanwhile, the CIA and an unidentified agency “remain unable to determine the precise origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, as both hypotheses rely on significant assumptions or face challenges with conflicting reporting,” the report states.
How ‘organic’ were those results? According to one CIA whistleblower, not natural at all.
Here’s the latest from House Oversight.
Staff on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have heard testimony from a whistleblower alleging that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) offered six analysts significant monetary incentives to change their position on COVID-19’s origin. The whistleblower, who presents as a highly credible senior-level CIA officer, alleges that of the seven members assigned to the CIA team tasked with analyzing COVID-19 origins, six officers concluded that the virus likely originated from a lab in Wuhan, China. The CIA, then however, allegedly offered financial incentives to six of the experts involved in the investigation to change their conclusion in favor of a zoonotic origin.
Financial incentives is carefully ambiguous and one could imagine any number of ways this could work, but analyses and investigations are corrupted all the time. The question is who in the political food chain decided to corrupt this one? It could be the usual case of bureaucrats covering fundaments. The CIA can’t be expected to stop a natural pandemic, but an unnatural one brewed up in a lab is another matter.
Or was this part of the same overall pressure campaign to cover up China’s role in the pandemic, for much the same reason that the USSR and Cuba’s role in the Kennedy assassination were covered up?
America has a long unfortunate history of covering up Communist attacks, the bigger the better, because otherwise we might have to do something about them. Missing suitcase nukes? Who knows. A virus devastates the country? Let’s blame climate change and call for more international cooperation.
What I’m saying is that it wouldn’t be the first time our authorities have done this.
