Osama Bin Laden - Pioneer Of Bioterrorism

It appears that Osama bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011.  Among his nefarious "accomplishments", bin Laden was the first internationally prominent proponent of bioterrorism. Worries about the deliberate misuse of biological agents have prompted the United States Federal government to set up new anti-bioterrorism facilities, such as the Center for Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Disease, to be located in Kansas.  Despite the demise of bin Laden, the threat of bioterrorism is likely to remain firmly fixed both in the public consciousness and in the wishlists of terrorists.

Bioterrorism is a real concern among farmers in this area of Minnesota too. People who live by the weather and other factors out of their control know all too well the damage that can be wrought by a change in the food supply production.
