(Liberty One) – UPDATE: Despite the Fact that Sens Lugar and Obama fought to build one and yesterday’s testimony confirming their existence, the Biden Administration now claims no Biolabs exist in Ukraine.

There seems to be a lot of debate on whether the US has Biolabs in Ukraine. The answer is apparently so. We have to go back to 2005 when Sen Dick Lugar and Sen Barack Obama worked together to set up labs in Ukraine. And Victoria Nuland admitted during testimony before the Senate that a lab or labs do exist. So there is little doubt that there are labs there and that there is a real fear that Russia could get access to the research.

The second part of the equation is not so clear-cut. The labs are said to contain deadly pathogens such as the Avian Flu and the plague. But, there are two reasons for building Biolabs. You could build them to study known pathogens in order to turn them into weapons or to study them and find a cure or a vaccine in order to render them less dangerous.

I know part of the Lugar/Obama project was to find a cure for the Avian Flu. But we don’t know what other intents were except that the lab(s) were funded by the Department of Defense. But, that would tend one to think of weapons. In either case, it is unlikely that we will ever know exactly what their purpose was. I want very much to believe that the United States is not weaponizing pathogens.

Natalie Winters at the National Pulse reported last night on Obama’s connections to the labs reported in Ukraine.

A deleted web article recovered by The National Pulse reveals that former President Barack Obama spearheaded an agreement leading to the construction of biolabs handling “especially dangerous pathogens” in Ukraine.

The news comes on the same day that Biden regime apparatchik Victoria Nuland told the U.S. Senate that the American government is concerned about biological research facilities falling into Russian hands as a result of the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.

Originally posted on June 18th, 2010, the article “Biolab Opens in Ukraine” details how Obama, while serving as an Illinois Senator, helped negotiate a deal to build a level-3 bio-safety lab in the Ukrainian city of Odessa.

The article, which also highlighted the work of former Senator Dick Lugar, was additionally included in Issue No. 818 of the United States Air Force (USAF) Counterproliferation Center’s Outreach Journal.

“Lugar said plans for the facility began in 2005 when he and then-Senator Barack Obama entered a partnership with Ukrainian officials. Lugar and Obama also helped coordinate efforts between the U.S and Ukrainian researchers that year in an effort to study and help prevent avian flu,” explained author Tina Redlup.

From The Gateway Pundit:

Biden and Obama official Victoria Nuland admitted to the biological research labs in Ukraine.

Victoria Nuland: Ukraine has biological research facilities which we are now quite concerned Russian troops, Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of.
