With the "intelligence" "community" providing the results of its alleged "investigation" as to the origins of the pandemic, reportedly "inconclusive" -- it's important to keep some critical things, and some possibilities, in mind. Among them:
* The US Congress can investigate without Chinese involvement. While many are calling for deeper inquiry (an overdue, good thing) they are doing so in a manner that places the burden purely on China. This is wrong for a number of reasons. Richard Ebright at Rutgers has stated: "Many threads of investigation are available in the US and would be accessible to a Congressional inquiry with subpoena power. At EcoHealth. At funding agencies (USAID, DTRA, DARPA, DHS, and NIH). At publishers (Springer-Nature and Lancet). No cooperation from China needed." See my piece on Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Alliance, which funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology's dangerous lab work and itself received over $100 million in USAID, Pentagon and NIH money.
