Biological weaponry -- civil defense
Dear Fred --
It would be most gratifying, may I reaffirm, if you could task the DSB the study readiness in this area.
If there are jurisdictional problems -- it occurs to me -- the peg might be the security of "military installations"; the Pentagon, obviously, draws its water supply from municipal sources.
Is there any step I should now take?
Joshua.
The Russian scientists did indeed acknowledge BW proliferation as a serious problem; but see Arbatov's posturing (enclosures).
