UNbelievable swine flu scam

As previously noted, the World Health Organization's swine flu pandemic scare-mongering prompted governments to stockpile flu vaccine, with France alone investing 600m euros ($739m, £515m) on 94 million doses. Unused vaccines aren't the only medications likely to end up sitting on shelves past their use-by dates, however, with various governments holding stockpiles of anti-virals Tamiflu and Relenza.

An ongoing investigaton now reveals further seeming skullduggery:

Key scientists behind World Health Organization advice on stockpiling of pandemic flu drugs had financial ties with companies which stood to profit, an investigation has found.

According to investigators the WHO refuses to divulge conflict of interest information, instead hiding behind a wall of secrecy:

In addition, membership of the "emergency committee" which advised WHO's director general Margaret Chan on declaring an influenza pandemic has been kept secret.

It means the names of the 16 committee members are known only to people within WHO, and as such their possible conflicts of interest with drug companies are unknown.

Unknown persons recommending huge outlays of others peoples' money: UNbelievable.
