Bad News on West Nile

The Washington Post has an excellent report on the growing threat posed by the West Nile virus. Within the national security establishment, there are a number of people who believe that the spread of West Nile may well be the opening salvo in a biological attack on the United States. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) raised this concern last week. The Weekly Standard mocks Leahy's paranoia. Read all three links.

N.B.: This item has now been fixed. Last night's version omitted the NYT story about Leahy's speculation.
