Most Americans are generally aware that Benedict Arnold was a traitor.  Many are perhaps less aware of the details. Arnold, a general officer during the Revolutionary War conspired with the British to hand over West Point, which was then not a military academy but a key fortress on the Hudson River.  Arnold planned to open the door to the enemy and leave his countrymen defenseless.

Which brings us to Joe Biden and the coronavirus.

But, first, let’s review what we know about COVID-19 and the circumstances surrounding its appearance.

  • We are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic caused by the virus.
  • The virus originated in China and from there spread to the rest of the world.
  • The virus first appeared in the city of Wuhan site of China’s top biological research lab.
  • The Wuhan lab was conducting and continues to conduct gain of function research. This is research deliberately designed to make viruses more dangerous to humans.
  • There is no meaningful distinction between civilian and military biological research in China. There are military personnel at the Wuhan lab.  The Chinese have for many years talked openly about the use of biological weapons in future conflicts.
  • There is no evidence to support China’s claim that COVID-19 spread naturally from a wet market in Wuhan. All available evidence suggests strongly the virus came out of the Wuhan lab.  Substantial evidence exists to support the notion that the virus had been bio-engineered to make it more dangerous to humans.

So, we can say with some certainty that COVID-19 either escaped from the Wuhan lab due to sloppy procedures and carelessness or that it was deliberately released, perhaps as a test run for future deployments of more lethal pathogens.

In either case, the United States should be moving with dispatch and a sense of purpose. The COVID-19 pandemic is not the end of anything.  It is the beginning.

If the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab due to poor safety practices, then other viruses will certainly do so in the future. The Chinese have taken no responsibility for what has happened. They have permitted no independent review of their procedures and facilities. Nor have they shown any inclination to change course or back away from gain-of-function research. On the contrary, all available information shows that Beijing is pushing ahead and working now with diseases far more deadly than COVID-19.

If the virus was deliberately released as some sort of test run, then the results of its deployment must be highly encouraging to the Chinese. The virus has spread throughout the world and crippled economies everywhere when draconian public health policies were implemented. If a disease that kills far less than 1% of the people it infects can do this, one can only imagine the power of a more lethal but equally transmissible virus.
