'In some ways the war game resembled the hit U.S. TV show '24.' U.S. health agency stages bird flu war game 27 Apr 2007 A leading U.S. health agency staged a war game this week to test its response to one of the worst health emergencies it could imagine -- an outbreak of avian flu on American soil. The exercise, which ended on Friday, was designed to simulate how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would marshal its resources, coordinate with other branches of government and, crucially, reassure the public [lie] while preparing it for a [US engendered] possible pandemic. In some ways the war game resembled the hit U.S. TV show [torture-fest] "24," with health officials battling in real time to save the United States from imminent disaster, though of course minus the violence [!]. Like the Counter Terrorism Unit at the heart of "24," the CDC used its Director's Emergency Operations Center... In calculating whether to close the border,... These are the facts on the ground: do our theoretical constructs hold," said Martin Cetron, CDC director of the division of global migration and quarantine. [Oh, during a (US Army created pandemic) the US is going to 'close the borders?' The US can't close the borders *now,* but they're going to close them in the middle of a bird flu pandemic? Closing the borders is an action to keep *us in,* quarantined in KBR's detention centers. --Lori Price]
