Submission + - Insider threats to pathogen research (terrorism at home) (thebulletin.org)

Lasrick writes: Derrin Culp of the National Center for Disease Preparedness explores the different levels of scrutiny that scientists in microbiology undergo, when compared to those who work in the nuclear weapons field. His complaint is that, even though America's most notorious biosecurity breach — the 2001 anthrax mailings — was the work of an insider, expert panels have concluded that there is no need for intrusive monitoring of microbiologists engaged in unclassified research. Includes a reference to Dr. Strangelove, which always makes this type of article worthwhile.
