A few homeless people who hang out in the NYC subways all day catch it and see how controlled it is. Total nightmare scenario, and far from unrealistic. Why bother with suicide bombers when all you have to do is get a half dozen people infected and send them on the next airplanes to who knows where with instructions to maximize exposure. They don't even need to be successful and you'll see travel restrictions that dwarf after 9/11. Just what the world economy doesn't need right now.

Which is why there are accounting rules. I'm not saying it can't/isn't being done. But it isn't as simple as you lead on either. It's more about accountability to all the other people giving money for grants. Who would do it if they had no way of insuring the money they give goes to what they are giving it for.

The real question is why do we live in a society that thinks they need actually see this as opposed to reading. I didn't need to to go search out the video to understand the significance of what happened. I think the fact we live in a society that seems to "need" to see such is very telling. Whether you've seen it or not changes none of the facts, and in no way should influence how you feel about such matters.
