Interpol Warns of AQ Biowarfare

From the Khaleej times:
SINGAPORE - Interpol said the Al Qaeda terrorist group is preparing to engage in biological warfare in urging countries to enact legislation allowing police to investigate scientific activity that can result in the manufacture of a bio-terrorist weapon.

Ronald Noble, secretary-general of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), told a conference in Singapore that captured terrorist suspects have admitted that their groups are plotting potential biological attacks.

There is enough evidence to show that Al Qaeda is preparing to engage in biological warfare, Noble said.
In a related note, there is absolutely no chance that bioweapons could be smuggled into the US through the open border with Mexico, because only prosperity and ambitious people willing to do the jobs that Americans won't enter there.

Via Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report and Jeff Goldstein of protein wisdom, who takes this excuse for today's (perhaps the month's) best slap at fake libertarians:
Me, I’m astounded there isn’t some large coalition plan in place for civilized countries to react to attacks of this sort in a predetermined and orchestrated way—with the first line of defense, of course, being that we do everything we need to do to prevent them before they happen.

Well, short of listening in on phone calls, I mean. Because that’s for pansy-ass bedwetters who FEAR FREEDOM’S AWESOME BURDENS!
