Far from being a public health expert, Fauci sits at the very top of America's biodefence infrastructure.And contrary to the notion that he is a Deep State string-puller of the Democratic party, it was George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who not only put Fauci there but created the very framework that the immunologist-physician commands.
Fauci had a virtual carte blanche to not merely approve but design and run the kind of research projects he sought — and could do so with nooversight structure above him. Biodefence projects that formerly would have fallen under the authority of military or intelligence agencies were now under his direct supervision.
