How safe are our subways?

Our nation's subways are known as soft targets – considered more vulnerable because they typically have less security. Government researchers are now trying to find out what would happen if they were hit by a chemical attack. Our Jeanne Meserve reports in the AM original.

    Watch John & Kiran each morning but it was a big disappointment to hear them advocating throwing computers away just because they are infected with malware from Facebook. Perhaps someone to discuss how to cleanup your computer and what good recovery software abounds. Not saying throw your computer off a building then joking about it with no alternatives. The economy is tough enough. Don't advocate throwing away a $500+ computer just because it gets a software infection. PLEASE

    During the 1950's the CIA released a Biological Weapon in NY's subway system under the guise of a real live test on human beings in a live situation!

    The Weapon the American CIA released is historically documented as being a rare form of African Influenza which would cause a large number of inhalent victums to make hospital and doctor visits. The CIA had previously made inroads to all area hospitals and doctor clinics to procure all new reports on each of their Biological Weapon victims.

    Unfortunately for the CIA, a medical doctor previously working in Africa almost immediately recognized that rare strain of African Influenza and reported that outbreak was planned, not accidental.

    The same Biological Warfare experiment on American civilians by the American CIA was duplicated in the San Francisco habor which drifted the aerosol released African Influenza germs into the city of San Francisco.

    A sizable number of children and elderly civilians became very ill from that germ warfare experiment. Quite a few civilians died, one in particular was a relative of a future Admiral of the 7th. fleet of the American Navy. He found out the CIA test had killed his family member and blew the whistle on their evil experiment.
