Former Senator warns of biological weapons
Former US Senator Bob Graham led discussion at the University of Florida today about the potential threat posed by biological weapons. Along with Center for Weapons of Mass Destruction Researcher Sarah Rubin, Graham says there is a lot of room for improvement at both the state and local level, and UF students now have the opportunity to find out what exactly should be done.
“University of Florida students will be going in to a number of communities in Florida under supervision and asking questions, gathering information and from that we can assess what is the state of preparedness in Florida, what is the state of preparedness in representative communities throughout the state,” Graham says.
He says a recent national intelligence survey found a 50% chance of a WMD attack somewhere on the globe within the 2 years.
