This was posted by littlemiracles, I think, back on page 145 of the thread. (Good find, lm!!) I read through it twice last night...whew! It mainly focuses on biogenetic engineering and the use of that for bio weapons. It goes back quite a ways historically...like making the claim that Lyme Disease was an early bioweapon experiment that escaped from the lab! With quite a bit of documentation to substantiate.
Anyway, one of the quotes that stuck with me was the claim, from quite a number of yers ago, that bioweapons would include bacteria, viruses and fungal infections
Several here have speculated that cindy mutated/merged with corexit, and I've read in other places that people are afraid it has merged/mutated with other microbe organisms that lived in the gulf naturally. And since cindy is a merge/mutation of a virus and bacteria, as per RadChic:
SAY HELLO TO SYNTHIA In 2003, JCVI successfully synthesized a small virus that infects bacteria.
By 2008, the JCVI team was able to synthesize a small bacterial genome. On May 6, 2010, JCVI revealed they had already created a self-replicating bacterial cell controlled by a chemically synthesized genome they named "synthetic Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0". (7) This completely synthetic cell with its computer designed genome has absolutely no natural DNA. (1) The etc group from Canada named it Synthia and it contains added watermark chains to identify the genome as artificial. It also has antibiotic resistance indicators. (7) One can only speculate why this artificial bacterium has an inherent programmed capability to resist antibiotics.

why could we not speculate that cindy has come ashore and merged with naturally-occurring fungus??? Cindy could have come ashore with the hurricane, and the incubation period would just about be right???
In that long piece I linked at the beginning, one of the scientists quoted in one of the articles said that there were projects in the works for bioweaponry that included organisms that would eat polyeurethanes (coatings on airplanes and ships among other things) as well as metal, hydrocarbons, radioactive waste, etc. In other words, they've been making all kinds of nasties...and we have no idea which ones they used in the GoM. But I remember vids that were linked on the bezerk thread that said whatever was in the gulf was eating away at the hulls of the ships and the ROVs.
BTW - I'd link all these various comments, but that is one LONG piece to get through. Not sure I want to read it again...I was at it til after 2 am!!! But Venter is mentioned several times throughout.
