Joint Chiefs chairman: U.S. intel investigating whether coronavirus leaked from Wuhan lab

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A handful of colleagues and myself have been reporting on the this for weeks.

Wuhan lab was performing coronavirus experiments on bats from the Coronavirus caves

China has had COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in its Wuhan lab for SEVEN YEARS

We were smeared and defamed – designated ‘fake news” by social media police for our coverage. As late as yesterday, there was a hashtag mocking anyone who thought the virus could have come from a lab in China driven by fake news CNN headlines like this:

CNN: “And 43% — a plurality, but not an overwhelming majority — said the virus likely came about naturally. This is most likely the truth, according to virus experts.”

Dven left-wing loons are signing on now that the Washington Post is reporting it:

Joint Chiefs chairman: U.S. intel investigating whether coronavirus leaked from Wuhan lab

By Bill Gertz – The Washington Times  April 14, 2020

U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating whether the coronavirus may have leaked from a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Tuesday.

Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, the nation’s most senior military officer, told reporters at the Pentagon the initial assessments indicate the coronavirus causing the global pandemic appears to have been a “natural” event arising from animal-to-human transmission.

However, he noted published reports that the origin may have occurred as an escape from a research laboratory.

The comments by the four-star general are the first time a senior American government official publicly raised the prospect that the virus may have originated from a Chinese laboratory.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper, appearing with Gen. Milley, was asked if international inspectors should be stationed at Chinese laboratories in the future. Mr. Esper said it is something that will be looked at in the future as part of a “lessons learned” regarding the pandemic.

The outbreak began Dec. 1 in Wuhan and many of the first victims — but not all — were associated with a wild animal market in the city.
