Rumsfeld Benefits From Avian Flu Hype

Posted on Monday, October 24 at 15:21 by chall
We are being told that Roche manufactures Tamiflu, but the San Fransisco Chronicle reports that the drug was actually developed by a company called Gilead that 10 years ago gave Roche the exclusive rights to market and sell Tamiflu. http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2005/06/24/MNGHTDE8LG1.DTL U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was the chairman of Gilead in 1997 while Tamiflu was being developed. Since Rumsfeld reportedly continues to hold major portions of stock in Gilead, he will handsomely profit from the scare tactics that are being used to justify the purchase of billions of dollars of Tamiflu around the world. http://www.gilead.com/wt/sec/pr_933190157/ Hmmmm.
