OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S ALLEGED DECEPTION OF U.S. FOOD SAFETY

Only a few months after the Obama Administration boasted about enacting “sweeping” legislation to protect the nation’s food supply, experts at a federal symposium revealed that half of what Americans eat comes from foreign countries not covered by the FDA-enforced measure, according to a public-interest watchdog group based in Washington, D.C.
This situation leaves the nation vulnerable to bioterrorism via tainted food, according to experts participating in the FBI’s International Symposium on Agroterrorism. The annual event, that took place in Kansas City last week, hoped to help protect the world’s food supply from terrorism through information-sharing and collaboration among governments, the private sector and academia, states a Judicial Watch report.
“The world-renowned agroterrorism experts attending this year’s symposium have some rather worrisome news for Americans, despite the president’s political horn-tooting. Because it’s nearly impossible to know where 50% of our food comes from, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to protect consumers from tainted supplies as well as intentional bioterrorism attacks,” said former intelligence and police officer Sid Franes.
“Why terror groups or fanatics haven’t already ‘attacked’ us using our food is a mystery in itself,” said Franes.
