U.S. not ready for bio terror attack

According to the New York Times, "A congressionally mandated panel says the United States isn't ready for a biological terrorist attack."

Is that the kind of change you voted for?

Honestly, is any country truly prepared for a bio-terrorism attack? The point of these attacks are to catch countries when they are vulnerable. This video from Newsy makes a good point that terrorists are continually gaining more powerful weapons. http://www.newsy.com/videos/white-house-gets-f-for-bio-terror-preparedness This means just we become prepared, there is something new out there that we will need to be prepared for.

Mike,

You are absolutely right. No country can be sure they have all the bases covered.

The point of the Congressional panel, however, seems to be that we are not even close to being as prepared as we should be for threats we already know about, much less future threats yet to be developed.
