ANOTHER leaked intel report accuses China of ‘intentionally’ concealing coronavirus danger to hoard medical supplies

The Department of Homeland Security has backed the Trump administration’s criticism of Beijing’s early response to the coronavirus outbreak with a new intelligence report, which has already been leaked to the media.

Back in January, China decreased exports and sharply increased its imports of basic medical supplies like face masks and surgical gowns and gloves, while simultaneously “denying there were export restrictions and obfuscating and delaying provision of its trade data,” the Associated Press reports, citing excerpts from a DHS document marked “for official use only” and dated May 1.

The US intelligence assessment concludes that with a “95% probability” this behavior was “not within normal range,” and that China “intentionally concealed the severity” of the health crisis from the global community. Beijing knew the coronavirus “was a contagion,” but held off informing the World Health Organization “for much of January,” the agency said, offering no precise timeline.

The new leak further reinforces Washington’s case against Beijing, which seeks to pin the bulk of the blame for thousands of American deaths and the US economic meltdown on its rival. It follows another “intelligence dossier” leak (which has also yet to be made public for independent scrutiny) just the day before, that analysed China’s “Covid-19 cover-up.”

Top US officials, including President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, repeatedly referred to a mounting pile of evidence that the pandemic was a result of China’s “mistake,” if not a leak at a lab in Wuhan, but have so far resisted the public and media pressure to show this evidence.

Oh, well, if Trump AND ever-so-honest US intelligence say something, then it must be true! After all, they were right about the Iraqi WMDs, weren’t they?

What a joke.

“A mounting pile of evidence?” More likely, a mounting pile of BULLSHIT! It’s already been verified that the virus in the Wuhan Virus Centre isn’t the same as the one that propgated from the “wet” market, so it did NOT come from there. It was brought to China by us “athletes” from seppo-stan for the Wuhan Military Games.

Show their evidence? You can’t show what you haven’t got.

The Trump team is adept at XXXXX and not XXXXX simultaneously.

Pompeo believes coronavirus was ‘man-made,’ also agrees with intelligence that it was not.

Pompeo believes America’s still in the Iran deal but also agrees that America is not.

There you go. Two independent sources verify that Pompeo is high on catnip.

Well, that’s silly. All China would have had to do is ban the export of supplies, like so many other countries have done. No subterfuge required.

I smell Pompeo statecraft at work again. He’s used to lying as the best means to get from point A to point B, so naturally he assumes everyone is.

More bullshit from Langley. These guys have to learn that yelling out wolf, wolf works only for a certain time. Have’t they read the story about the boy who cried wolf too many times? This should be compulsory reading for all US “intelligence” agencies.

No end to US propaganda war on China and Iran — Monday, 04 May 2020 4:27 PM [ Last Update: Monday, 04 May 2020 4:30 PM ] — All sovereign independent countries not controlled by the US are vilified to weaken and isolate them on the world stage — how the scourge of imperialism operates. Establishment media go along as press agents for powerful interests. The press is only free to elements owning and controlling them, propaganda the specialty of major ones in the US and other Western countries. For good reason, the late Gore Vidal called The New York… Read more »

Since there was no increased demand outside of China back in January any claims regarding export restrictions are misleading. Of course local demand was on the rise. Export demand was not an issue until March and into April when the West finally realized they too had a problem, well behind the curve.

… and of course we can expect another fluff dossier lacking facts and most importantly, evidence. It will be a dossier full of maybe’s, should be’s, what someone might have heard five people ago, and proof that cannot be shown because it is classified aka too embarrassing to publish.
