How the Republican War Hawk and Architect of 9/11 and the Anthrax Attacks, Dick Cheney, Created Anthony Fauci

Jeff Childers (Coffee and COVID) reports:

“UnHerd ran an equally fascinating article this weekend titled ‘How Dick Cheney Created Anthony Fauci.’ 

The article describes how the Bush Administration responded to the post-9/11 anthrax attacks by creating a new biodefense organization, knitting it together out of a long list of pre-existing departments and agencies, and by 2003, promoted the obscure NIAID’s AIDS-veteran and biodefense “expert” Anthony Fauci to its head. Worst of all, they let Fauci design his own position, which ended up with him being impossible to fire, being nearly unaccountable, and being the best-paid employee in the entire federal government, even over the President. 

UnHeard explained, ‘Fauci now had carte blanche to not merely approve but design and run the kind of research projects he sought—and could do so with no oversight Biodefence projects that formerly would have fallen under authority of military or intel-agencies were now under his supervision.’

Fauci’s promotion was not just another bureaucratic reshuffling. It was a tectonic event, a shifting of political mountains and the plates underneath the entire U.S. health and biodefense infrastructure. Its budget ballooned into a multiple of all research into cancer, heart disease, and obesity combined. According to UnHerd, Fauci ‘went from being the director of one the NIH’s constituent 27 institutes to being the only one who really mattered.’”
