US Intelligence Analyzing Loads of Wuhan Lab Genetic COVID Evidence – Mandarin Speaking Scientists with Security Clearance Needed

Now that President Biden (and the media) have finally accepted the distinct possibility that COVID leaked from a Chinese biolab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) – which ADN has reported on and advocated since the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020 – the U.S intelligence community (IC) is currently sifting through and analyzing what CNN called a “treasure trove of genetic data” from the Wuhan lab.

This treasure trove could be key to uncovering the origins of the virus. How this massive data dump was captured is still unclear, though U.S. hacking Chinese cloud-based servers has been hinted at.

This data is a critical component of the administration’s 90-day review of intelligence on the origins of COVID-19. But there are obstacles.

One major challenge is finding the cleared personnel and resources to decipher the massive amounts of complex data in a classified setting. So, the IC needs Mandarin-speaking scientists with security clearances.

CNN explains:

Not only do intelligence agencies need government scientists skilled enough to interpret complex genetic sequencing data and who have the proper security clearance, they also need to speak Mandarin, since the information is written in Chinese with a specialized vocabulary.

“Obviously there are scientists who are (security) cleared,” one source familiar with the intelligence told CNN. “But Mandarin-speaking ones who are cleared? That’s a very small pool. And not just any scientists, but ones who specialize in bio? So, you can see how this quickly becomes difficult.”

The other major challenge is harnessing the power of numerous supercomputers with enough computing power to process it all.

In order to decipher and translate this mountain of raw data into usable information, notes CNN – “intelligence agencies are relying on supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Labs, a collection of 17 elite government research institutions.”

CNN reported that:

This giant catalog of information contains genetic blueprints drawn from virus samples studied at the lab in Wuhan, China which some officials believe may have been the source of the Covid-19 outbreak, multiple people familiar with the matter tell CNN.

It’s unclear exactly how or when US intelligence agencies gained access to the information, but the machines involved in creating and processing this kind of genetic data from viruses are typically connected to external cloud-based servers — leaving open the possibility they were hacked, sources said.

Last month that senior Biden administration officials admitted that they now believe the theory that the virus accidentally escaped from a lab in Wuhan is at least as credible as the possibility that it emerged naturally somewhere else.

This was a dramatic shift from a year ago, when Democrats publicly downplayed the so-called lab leak theory, likely simply because President Trump supported it. ADN

BIOLOGICAL Attack , Biden Administration to stupid to know when America is being attacked .

It is increasingly obvious that the Biden cabal knows the truth, but is unable to respond in any effective way, as research at Wuhan continues without the need for the moron Fauci’s money. The next virus will not be released until the Chinese Party has a vaccine. Will Gates and Zuckerberg be given the vaccine? Probably.
To Xi the people of the free world are clutter, to be eliminated at lowest possible cost. Like Stalin in the Ukraine, for many, Xi will be happy to just let them starve. He is a truly evil man, who the Devil must be protecting from God, as many good people join in prayer for his death.

again I agree with your bio attack and it was released but there we end, Why/ Becuase the US polioticians have been involved in the release and the following hysteria ovwr covid that is totally wrong. The dems have not only let the virus go but they have taken advantage of a situation by scaring rekky atupid people into wearing masks that don’t work, into closing down business and really hurting maany people, by letting the lazy people prosper by not having to pay rent, by giving exorbant unemployment, and many other actions costing the working American out the butt, by allowing tthese really stupid people to try to shame others into thier wrong way of following (would have said thinking bit these individuals are totally lacking that skill), by taking a vaccine that doesn’t work and that could be causing more harm than te supposed good it is supposed to be rendering, by costing the tax payers, again, more money to pay the drug companies for their support, because they give that usless vaccine away free (but again at a very high cost to the tax payers, so that free?). So the point is Biden isn’t stupidm just following orders from the super rich like soros. In fact that is what most of the politicians are doing and we are letting them get away with it. Now I do agree Biden is stupid, well senile with dementia but he isn’t smart enought to do all that is happening as neither are these idiot dems. They are just plain and simple paid off crooked politiciansn that all need to be hung. Just sayin….

What has US Intelligence been doing for the last 15 months

US intelligence is obeying the elites, who now run the country, as since Trump was elected, the people can not be allowed to elect leaders in the future. Look at the estimates of how many additional votes had to be counted late in the swing states to finish what the evil press had set the stage for. So, we got the evil puppet Biden, who is barely able to read what they write for him to say.

So it was the Chinese after all. They brag a big game about their power but it pales in comparison to the US. Why do you think they haven’t done anything. Armegeddon for them is much worse for them than for us. They do fear us. And they should.

Elizabeth Estrada aka CHIAKIA

LISTEN UP….LABS Like the WUHAN LAB are a THREAT to ALL CIVILIZATION. CHINA…RUSSIA…N.KOREA…IRAN are NOT Being FORTHCOMING. THEY are KEEPING SECRETS. In the END the SUN is SCHEDULED to DESTROY ALL LIFE on EARTH. GOD Had it PREPLANNED Since the Beginning of TIME. HE Will MAKE ALL THINGS NEW as it is WRITTEN. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

And this vaccination card ID they are pushing which because the unleashed covid 19 part two, which will reintroduce the mask mandates and social distancing and all the fear and hysteria, will usher in the Era of having to show the card to prove you’ve been vaccinated and if not take away your rights to socialize, travel and buy food and necessities. This will more than likely then be forced to be made into a chip or tattoo to permanently identify those who have taken this killer vaccine.

So Biden is asking for Democrat loyal Chinese spies?

Biden can’t admit that he ignored an act of war against this country. The only appropriate counter strike is to begin a process to remove the Chinese Communist Party from power in China.
Just as China smuggles drugs, and chemicals to make drugs, into the US via gangs in Mexico, which have become China’s proxies in their war against the US, we can retaliate by supplying guns to smugglers to supply them to the Chinese people, allowing them to extract revenge from their slave masters.
A silenced semiautomatic hand gun, along with 1000 rounds of ammunition is the new recommended “get-even” “care-package” for our brothers, the Chinese people. Hong Kong might be an easier place to start, as there are people there, who have lost family members to the regime.
Hijacked gasoline tankers could be effective weapons in bringing down Chinese government buildings, by rebels. Follow the guards home and assassinate them when they leave from home for work. As fewer men are willing to work as guards government buildings will become easier to attack.
Chinese agents monitor all US social media. I hope they note the rage that they are creating against them, as did the Imperial Japanese when they attacked Pearl Harbor. We will catch you and pre-heat you for Hell, someday soon, you evil pack of vermin.

Some of us have known this all along, we know it’s origin, the USA and Dr. ANTHONY FOUCI! Fouci secured funding for the research here and when a Judge stepping and said NO, you can’t fund this research because there is no good that can come of it. They moved it to Woohan. Fouci should be in prison along with the researchers for all the pain and suffering and deaths this virus has caused, it is bio-warfare engineered to kill, unleashed during Trumps presidency as Fouci predicted in advance. The best meteorologist can’t predict the weather with any certainty but Fouci can predict an unknown killer virus and when to expect it, my what awesome killer clairvoyant powers that man has… Prosecute this man and his colleagues.
