A surreal DoD press conference from 1997, with Secretary of Defense William Cohen :
"...some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops.
"Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.
"So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real..."
So in 1997 the then US Defense Secretary held a press conference and announced those who threaten the United States were working on ethnic specific viruses, genetically modified insects to take out food crops and electromagnetic weapons that set of volcanoes and earthquakes.
That was in 1997.
It's 2011, 14 years later. How advanced today are those viruses and earthquake weapons?
Unless of course, Defense Secretary Cohen was just bullshitting to keep the United States in a state of Peak Fear, pumping new threats to ensure bigger Pentagon budgets, in the wake of the first attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Oklahoma Bombing.
"...alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely...."
