The Lab-Leak Hypothesis

Interesting, and makes a whole lot of sense.

Someone mentioned that zero hedge said this months ago and got banned on twitter for it.

Patient zero was probably a Chinese microbiologist named Haung Yanling. Remember how they were blaming the Wuhan wet market? Guess what was right across the street?

Of even greater interest is Fauci's role in funding gain of function testing there after BHO cut that off in the US.

Regardless of the actual origin, I would like to see China held to account for how they kept international travel going to ensure that everyone else got it, at the same time as they were locking down internally to control the spread within their own borders.

Apropos of this thread. Today on Mercola's blog -- with copious references cited
Story at-a-glance

EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization focused on pandemic prevention, has played a central role in the current pandemic. When SARS-CoV-2 first emerged in Wuhan, China, the EcoHealth Alliance was providing funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to collect and study novel bat coronaviruses

EcoHealth Alliance president Peter Daszak has been the primary expert chosen by the mainstream media to explain the origin of the pandemic. He’s also intimately involved in the two major international committees tasked with investigating the origin of the virus, despite openly dismissing the possibility of the pandemic being the result of a lab leak

EcoHealth Alliance has received nearly $39 million — one-third of the organization’s total budget — from the U.S. Department of Defense
David Franz, a former Fort Detrick commander, is one of EcoHealth Alliance’s advisers. Fort Detrick is the principal government biowarfare/biodefense facility in the U.S. Franz promoted the story that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction — a false claim that led to the invasion of Iraq in 2003

Emails prove Daszak played a central role in the plot to obscure the lab origin of SARS-CoV-2 by issuing a scientific statement condemning such inquiries as “conspiracy theory”

Not only that, one of the proposals funded by Fauci budgeted about 1/3 of the funds for a co-researcher, Dr. "Bat Lady" Shi of the Wuhan Virology Institute (aka PLA Bio-weapons Lab - Wuhan facility).

That was when Fauci was head of NIH, so that was a few tens of millions of your taxpayer dollars at work.

Our leaders do Lenin one better. He is purported to have said "The Kulaks will sell us the rope that we will use to hang them."

They make us pay for the rope.
