The false claims were mostly made by the MEDIA and by scientists who were just speculating about what the MEDIA told them.
The details of how all the bad information about coatings and additives got spread around are in Chapter 15 of my book. That chapter is titled "To Err Is Human" and can be read by clicking HERE.
That's incorrect. Two different military labs found the same thing independently, stated it, and put the names of their supervisors onto the public reports of the strain/purity/weaponization.
Those aren't errors, and no lab, certainly not some byline buried deep in a bungled FBI report, has the credibility to challenge the two military labs' analysis.
