You know how Biden seems to be pretty sure that COVID-19 was not the result of a lab leak? Well, it turns out that he actually doesn’t know because there’s a ton of unexamined evidence, much of which may point to that possibility, but he chose to ignore it and declare it a closed issue. He seems to have done that too soon.
The New York Times surprised everyone by reporting, honestly, that there is a bunch of “unexamined evidence” intelligence officials told the White House about. After details of this evidence came out, Biden declared a “90 day sprint” to determine the origins of the virus. Previously, Biden, Democrats, and “fact checkers” all denied this. Via the Times:
“President Biden’s call for a 90-day sprint to understand the origins of the coronavirus pandemic came after intelligence officials told the White House they had a raft of still-unexamined evidence that required additional computer analysis that might shed light on the mystery, according to senior administration officials.”
“The officials declined to describe the new evidence,” the report says, noting that the evidence is likely liked to a lab leak:
“But the revelation that they are hoping to apply an extraordinary amount of computer power to the question of whether the virus accidentally leaked from a Chinese laboratory suggests that the government may not have exhausted its databases of Chinese communications, the movement of lab workers and the pattern of the outbreak of the disease around the city of Wuhan.”
Biden promises that the results of the investigation will be made public, but don’t count on it. We’re not exactly dealing with the most transparent presidential administration here.
