Sooner, rather than later America just might wake up and see this is what could’ve happened all along. Ebola can in fact be weaponized and was done by the Soviet Union by the tons. This likely possibility is only now being picked up on by the media.
ISLAMIC State members could be planning to infect themselves with Ebola and travelling to the West, waging bio-terror as “suicide bombs”, according to a military expert.
Captain Al Shimkus, Ret., a Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College, said terrorist groups like IS could easily use human carriers to widely disseminate the deadly virus via the world’s air transportation system.
“The individual exposed to the Ebola virus would be the carrier,” Shimkus told Forbes.
“In the context of terrorist activity, it doesn’t take much sophistication to go to that next step to use a human being as a carrier.”
He said with the virus overwhelming parts of West Africa — and more than 3800 dead within a few months — it wouldn’t be difficult for a terrorist group to run off with some infected bodily fluids for use elsewhere at another time.
Shimkus, who teaches biological warfare, said infected jihadists would try to interact with as many people in their target city or country.
