"Whether or not H5N1 is the virus that will ultimately trigger such a pandemic is unknown to us," he (Leavitt) told a news conference.I guess, since the New York subway “terrorist scare” turned out to be a hoax, Bushco needs something else to try and get us good and crazy and totally distracted.
"The probability is uncertain. But the warning signs are troubling. Hence we are responding in a robust way."
