David Gergen spoke about playing the role of the National Security advisor in Operation Dark-Winter, a study in biohazard response, on 96.9 FMTALK this morning:
Presented with a small outbreak of Smallpox. 12 day timeframe played out. What are you going to do?

Mobilzed National Guard, closed airports.

Like secondary smoke. One of three people die.

Within days it spread over the US and into other countries.

Warfare on border of Oklahoma and Texas to get away from it.

It was a nightmare.

"We totally lost control of the disease."
