FDA Seeking Director of Its New Division of Counter-Terrorism


The FDA’s new Division of Counter-Terrorism in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research is being established within the newly formed Office of Pediatric Drug Development and Program Initiatives.


Huh?

– March 13, 2002 Journal of the American Medical Association

Ok, so somehow there is a link between Pediatric drug development, terrorism, and the FDA. What exactly that link is remains unknown. I recommend that a committee, comprised of FDA bean counters and former Special Forces operatives, be formed to assess possible interactions between the three elements. We should have an answer within a period of 3-15 years. Demo Dick out.
