NY POST: ‘Biden is Letting China Dodge Responsibility for COVID — What Else?’

The New York Post editorial board absolutely torched President Biden for going soft on China, America’s biggest adversary on the world stage; “What won’t he let China get away with?” the Post asks.

From The New York Post:

At a House hearing Tuesday, former National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe told lawmakers a leak is the “only” credible explanation for the virus: “My informed assessment, as a person with as much access as anyone to our government’s intelligence,” is that “a lab leak is the only explanation credibly supported by our intelligence, by science and by common sense.”

That followed a Senate committee’s release Monday of its full, 301-page report on COVID’s origins, which cited “two leaks” — possibly as early as “July or August” 2019 — as “the most likely” source.

What kind of evidence has emerged?

  • The Wuhan Institute of Virology was conducting risky “gain-of-function” research, despite shoddy biosafety measures.
  • Lab researchers began getting sick in the fall of 2019, which is consistent with a leak.
  • Cases of flu-like symptoms surged in Wuhan in October and November that year, yet tests for influenza proved negative.
  • Beijing rushed personnel to the lab around then. “All guards went up,” notes ex-Health and Human Services and intel official Larry Kerr, an adviser on the report.
  • A Chinese military scientist filed a patent for a COVID vaccine in February 2020, suggesting work on it began as early as November — before most folks ever heard of the virus.

Most tellingly, China’s been covering up evidence — “destroying medical tests, samples and data,” “intimidating and disappearing witnesses,” “lying and coercing global health authorities” and intentionally spreading propaganda, Ratcliffe said.

Why won’t Team Biden press the issue? Because it fears the “enormous implications” of blaming China.
