WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal officials are still at a loss to explain how a potentially deadly strain of influenza could be sent to more than 4,000 labs around the world.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is operating under the presumption that the H2N2 strain was purposefully included in the panels designed to test the labs' proficiency in identifying viruses.

Recombinomics Commentary April 14, 2005
>> " have tested 400 samples from two Korean pig farms, WHO says, and found no trace of WSN/33.
Seo declined to comment. Henry Niman, a business owner in Philadelphia who backs Seo's claim,
says Kawaoka's study wasn't broad enough to refute the theory. But, says WHO flu expert Klaus Stöhr, "we've spent too much time on these speculations already.
"Since WHO has announced to Nature and Science that they have failed to prove or disprove the presence of WSN/33, but are moving on to other areas, it is worth going into a little more detail on the only piece of positive data that the WHO obtained. This approach has analogies with the 1957 H2N2 pandemic strain that is causing some concern.
.... WHO notes that, as indicated above, they looked at 400 samples. They came up with 27 isolates, all of which were H1N2 and were triple reassortants like those found in the United States (A/duck/NC/91347/03(H1N2) and A/Swine/North Carolina/93523/01(H1N2)). This was nothing new, because the same result had been obtained in Korea (A/Swine/Korea/CY02/02(H1N2) in 2002, and the sequence had been deposited at GenBank. Thus, WHO was able to confirm an earlier report by another lab. The finding of H1N2 was not as worrisome as H1N1 from WSN/33 because the H1N2 had contemporary human genes, and most humans had immunity to the contemporary genes.
Thus, the finding did not really address the issue of WSN/33, because as noted above, only two farms were checked. Not noted is the fact that these 400 samples came from only a handful of swine, and all 27 isolates were the same. They came from only one or two swine. Thus, WHO went to 2 farms, found 1 or 2 positive pigs, and since they were infected with another virus, they closed their investigation.
Hopefully, when WHO tries to figure out were the 1957 H2N2 was before it was mistakenly mailed to labs around the world, they will not stop looking if they come across a couple of H3N2 samples. One can hope that they do not think that H3N2 in someone's freezer means no one else in the United States has improperly labeled H2N2.
.... WHO did not find WSN/33 and they did not find H9N2, so they have no rational explanation for the composition of the six isolates from six pigs on six farms in Korea in 2004.
Until they can explain the data (other than hand waving using a disputed shipment of WSN/33 to Korea or up-loads of mistaken files), the case is not closed."

PAPUA, INDONESIA: LOOMING COVERT GENOCIDE OF A CHRISTIAN PEOPLE
By Elizabeth Kendal
World Evangelical Alliance Religious Liberty Commission (WEA RLC)
Special to ASSIST News Service
AUSTRALIA (ANS) -- Papua (formerly Irian Jaya), Eastern Indonesia, is the western part of the island of New Guinea. The indigenous Papuans are Melanesians, and according to Operation World, more than 90% of them are officially reckoned as Christian, mostly Protestant. This is quite amazing, considering Papuans were animists and headhunters only 50 years ago. Many people worldwide have not even heard of Papua, or confuse it with the independent nation of Papua New Guinea (PNG), in the eastern part of New Guinea. Papua (as Irian Jaya) has been memorably highlighted in Don Richardson's well known missionary tales 'Peace Child' (also available as a film) and 'Lords of the Earth'.
Before World War Two, Papua was part of the Dutch East Indies, although it remained virtually untouched. After WW2, the Dutch East Indies became part of Indonesia (1949). However, the Dutch held on in Papua, arguing that as Papua is inhabited by Melanesians, it should be independent. The Indonesians did not agree. But the Dutch defied Indonesia, ceded independence to 'West Papua', and on 1 December 1961, hoisted the new Papuan Morning Star flag. Then on the night of 20 December 1961, Indonesia sent in paratroopers. Papua was conquered and annexed. In 1969 Indonesia held a rigged plebiscite in Papua. Indonesian authorities hand-picked 1,025 Papuans, who then voted unanimously, under duress, for integration with Indonesia. The Indonesians and the UN call this 'The Act of Free Choice', but the Papuans call it 'The Act of No Choice'.
Since that day, Papua has had a history of violent oppression by the Indonesian military (TNI), with demographic dilution through a government programme of massive transmigration of Javanese Muslims. Papuans are politically marginalised, racial tension and religious intolerance have flourished, and Islamic Indonesian culture dominates. Of utmost concern is systematic 'ethnic cleansing' by military operations, and the (possibly deliberate) introduction of AIDS and infected pigs. (Melanesian Papuans eat pigs but Indonesian Muslims do not.) Officially, some 100,000 Papuans have been killed directly due to Indonesian occupation, but the unofficial figure is 800,000.
The Indonesians do all this for economic gain. They want Papua so they can exploit its timber and mineral resources. The notorious and systemically corrupt TNI also profits from 'business' in Papua. Meanwhile the UN and various Western governments turn a blind eye for political gain. They want Indonesia as an ally.
The Christian Papuans desperately need our support and prayers. Papuans, often Christian leaders, are frequently killed by the TNI, who are constantly trying to provoke retaliation that could be claimed to justify a full scale massacre against the 'separatist threat'. The TNI terrorises Papuans from helicopters, shooting civilians, burning villages and churches, and forcing thousands to flee their homes and hide in the jungle where they die of starvation, illness or injury. The TNI's allies, the pro-Indonesian militias and the Laskar Jihad (Islamic warriors), are armed ready for a major ethnic cleansing campaign.
Papua, as part of Indonesia and the 'dar al-Islam' (land of Islam), is being 'Indonesianised' and Islamised. The Papuans are facing genocide while those with worldly power turn away. But as one Papuan Christian leader recently said to me (EK), 'We are not alone. We have our Lord, Jesus Christ. He created us and put us here in this land of Papua. It is his will that we are here. We have his Spirit. And we have you, our brothers and sisters who support us and pray for us. We are not alone, we are together.'
PLEASE PRAY SPECIFICALLY FOR:
God to protect his children in Papua, surrounding them with his presence (Psalm 125:2), and frustrating the way of the wicked (Psalm 146:9).
a powerful movement of the Holy Spirit through the young Papuan Church, drawing all Papuans to humble God-dependent prayer, and empowering believers with holiness, gifts and faith.
divine wisdom and leadership so the Church may grow through the present struggles, for the glory and victory of God.
the God of peace, justice and righteousness to turn away disaster from his children, by using advocates, speakers and writers to awaken the world to this developing secret genocide.
'Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honour me.' (Psalm 50:15)
