What Gives? Why Is Homeland Security's Napolitano Giving Swine Flu Briefing? (Video)

I understand that Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius is still awaiting confirmation, but why is DHS head Napolitano acting as the point man for the Obama Administration?

She is having a hard enough time keeping up with her job as it is. It just seems a little odd that the woman tapped to protect homeland security is discussing a virus outbreak. Unless...

Could it be that we are not being told the truth about swine flu?

As the virus spreads, more and more people — and even a few virologists — believe H1N1 is a human-engineered pathogen. On April 25, the journalist Wayne Madsen wrote:

Our Mexico City source said a top scientist for the United Nations, who has examined the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa, as well as HIV/AIDS victims, concluded that H1N1 possesses certain transmission “vectors” that suggest that new flu strain has been genetically-manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon. The UN expert believes that Ebola, HIV/AIDS, and the current A-H1N1 swine flu virus are biological warfare agents.

Past swine flu outbreaks have been spread from pigs to humans, who then passed the flu on to other humans. However, with A-H1N1, there have been no reported infections of pigs. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), A-H1N1 has gene segments from North American swine, bird and human flu strains and a segment from Eurasian swine flu. Costa Rica, Brazil, and Peru have issued alerts to check all incoming passengers from Mexico at border crossings, airports, and seaports for symptoms of the swine flu.

Meanwhile, in the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has instituted “passive surveillance” of travelers entering the country.

Napolitano announced this on Sunday. On Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was too late to contain the swine flu outbreak in the United States.

  1. I would not put it past them for a second to lie to us. Supposedly they have identified the flu source yet they do not stop the infected products or illegal aliens our lives are seemingly worthless to our government!

    Outbreak identified...

    Wonderful article thank you!

  2. I asked this same question in my article in hubpages: In fact, the way I found this article was because I was looking for the answer to that very question. DHS should not even be involved here - at least not until there is literal panic in the streets. and that is the point of my article is that there is going to be if the liberal media does not back off a pandemic that doesn't even exist.

  3. Same here John - Found the article when looking for the answer. Agree with you that the liberal media is pushing this thing way too hard.
