the Guardian reported that as part of the Osama Bin Laden capture effort, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) set up a fake vaccination clinic in Abbottabad, Pakistan, to collect DNA from Bin Laden's children. ...Offit is the one who has abused the public trust. He sat on the govt committee setting the mandatory vaccine schedule, while he was a paid lobbyist for the vaccine companies.
Vaccine program workers, who sometimes struggle to gain public trust and governmental cooperation in the first place, are furious about the deception.
"To take children who are in need of vaccines to prevent some disease that could kill them and use that as a front for something else is unconscionable," says Paul Offit, chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and the director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. "The end doesn't always justify the means." Although it appears that children were in fact being vaccinated, Offit says that's irrelevant. "Hiding behind a wonderful and needed program like vaccines is heinous."
Catching Bin Laden was a wonderful program. If anything is heinous, it is taking good and worthwhile vaccines and hiding them in a dubious govt mandate, as Offit has promoted in the USA. He is probably the single most visible proponent of mandatory vaccines.
