Doctor Fauci thought gain-of-function COVID research was worth the risk of pandemic

May 28, 2021

When last we left Doctor Fauci here at America’s Watchtower it was April 6th and he was should have been catching heat because it was just learned that while he was part of a group that was funding gain-of-function research on the COVID virus in Wuhan he bypassed proper Federal oversight.

Now today we are learning the stunning revelation that Doctor Fauci actually said this research (making a SARS-like virus more contagious) was so important it was worth the risk of causing a pandemic. Here is more:

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director and medical advisor to Joe Biden, defended controversial “gain-of-function” research in 2012, and said the research was worth the risk of a pandemic.

“In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic?” Fauci wrote in an article in  the American Society for Microbiology in October 2012—which was first reported by The Australian. “Scientists working in this field might say — as indeed I have said — that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”

This news coupled with the fact that we know Doctor Fauci bypassed proper oversight leads me to take this to the next level. Perhaps he not only saw a pandemic as a risk worth taking but also an opportunity too good to pass up. Kind of like the Tuskegee Study…

    As I said before, but it bears repeating. Fauci played the dual role of Robespierre and Svengali to the hapless, clueless, and paranoid Dems. The Left didn’t need any such cover for instigating THEIR OWN insurrection against America. .

    The fun is just beginning.

    First I found this article from The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;

    Then there’s this report from British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen

    Lastly, CNN just published an editorial by Nick Paton Walsh that carefully backs into the idea of properly investigating the Wuhan lab.

    I have a fantasy where some day a significant Lib will finally say “You guys were right all along.” I’m not holding my breath, but it’s a fun thought.

      I’ll be waiting patiently for that moment as well but they will never admit they were wrong about anything. That is why they continue to try to make us sound like fringe lunatics! Thanks for the links, I have not checked them out yet.

        I think you’ll like the links, but save some time for reading and confirming the information. Especially The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is pretty meaty.

        The Daily Mail link is a prepublication report about a scholarly work from Europe that has been suppressed for a year. The complete work should be worthwhile reading when it officially comes out. Dalgleish and Sorenson are both heavyweights in virology.

    Now this is a story that is worth a read… this arrogant little man with blood on his hands should be in jail for lying to congress among other things.
