Army Bio Lab Illegal and Criminal

Professor Francis Boyle of University of Illinois, who drafted the 1989 federal law that criminalized violations of the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, which was signed into law by President non-W Bush in 1990, commented on the Army's proposed new U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, reported Frederick News-Post.

Professor Boyle further commented that, if federal law is followed to the letter, biodefense labs at Ft. Detrick would be shut down and their decision-makers would spend life in prison.
