Fox News has reported that government officials familiar with intelligence on the matter now believe that the Chinese coronavirus escaped from a laboratory, as opposed to coming into existence at a wet food market.
The sources don’t believe coronavirus was created as a weapon, but entered into human transmission at the Wuhan Institute of Virology from a bat. Bats are known to carry a wide reservoir of virus that can’t normally be transmitted to humans, and it is possible that the virus was transmitted from a bat to a pangolin and back again, taking on a form that made it capable of infecting humans.
The sources Fox cites claim that the Wuhan wet food market never actually sold bats, and was scapegoated by the Chinese government in order to deflect scrutiny from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The U.S. Embassy in China had previously warned the State Department about potentially hazardous research into bats and coronaviruses at the facility before.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, acknowledged the possibility when asked about the prospect of COVID-19 entering into human transmission at a laboratory during a Tuesday press conference.
“It should be no surprise to you that we have taken a keen interest in that and we’ve had a lot of intelligence take a hard look at that. I would just say at this point, it’s inconclusive, although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural, but we don’t know for certain.”
Anonymous government-linked sources have been wrong before, and it’s hard to conclude decisively if the U.S. government has determined with confidence that the virus entered into human transmission at the Wuhan laboratory. But Fox’s report indicates that government officials are considering the possibility as far more than a fringe conspiracy theory. Liberal media outlets had claimed as such with confidence around the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, blasting Senator Tom Cotton in particular for questioning the Chinese government’s narrative on the origins of the pandemic disease.
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
