The comments undercut a public statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued just hours earlier which stated no such assessment has been made and continues to “rigorously examine” whether the outbreak “began through contact with infected animals or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan.”Biden’s request this week for the IC to launch a deeper “investigation” presents a new dilemma for the intelligence community. If they admit that the Chinese Government is responsible for the creation and release of Covid-19 they will be confirming that China committed a casus belli, not just against the United States, but the rest of the world. There will be great pressure to retaliate. What if the IC decides to whitewash the matter? That will be difficult to do. With the credibility of the IC now on the line given the DNI’s previous denial Covid originated in a lab, the IC–. The individual agencies that comprise the IC are not likely to cover for each other. Any effort to suppress “evidence” will likely be resisted furiously.
What kind of evidence may emerge from this new investigation? We now are in a position to examine whether or not the virus was man-made. If the Covid-19 virus shows clear evidence of being synthesized then that rules out the “Wet Market” hypothesis. Once you establish that Covid-19 was created in a lab that will raise the next question–who paid for it? Will any evidence emerge showing that Anthony Fauci’s operation sent money, directly or indirectly, to an organization that conducted gain of function research? That is just one question that IC ought too answer as it launches a more in-depth investigation of the origin and spread of Covid.
The ultimate issue will be the question of accountability. What persons and/or institutions facilitated the creation and subsequent spread of this dead virus? Once identified they must be called to account. With millions dead that is likely to be an expensive bill to pay.
