DHS, Big 3 Autos Going Down? Pandemic, Anthrax Psyop Watch

Homeland Security lab like biodefense battleship

FREDERICK, Md. (Map, News) - The Department of Homeland Security's new laboratory building in Frederick resembles a battleship being readied for war against biological weapons.
With its curved glass exterior, 10-inch-thick walls and high-security labs, the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center gives the government a state-of-the art tool for predicting biological attacks and identifying perpetrators of what the FBI calls "bio-crimes."
Agency officials dedicated the $128 million building Wednesday at Fort Detrick, where it is part of a biodefense campus that will also include new labs run by the Army and the National Institutes of Health.

Pakistan asks for emergency IMF funds to stave off bankruptcy
Hit by the global financial crisis, Pakistan is the second country after Iceland to ask the International Monetary Fund for help against its looming balance of payments crisis. With a population of 170 million, Pakistan is also the biggest nation and the first Muslim country to turn to the IMF, troubled equally by near bankruptcy and an encroaching al Qaeda-backed Taliban insurgency.
The IMF directors in Washington are expected to approve a $4-5 bn a first aid rescue package against outflow of cash as investors clean out their accounts in Pakistani banks. The level of cash reserves barely covers one month’s imports, inflation hovers at a 30-year high and the value of the rupee is in freefall, making food and other staples unaffordable. The new president Ali Asif Zardari is trying to raise at least $10 bn from western bankers to stave off bankruptcy within weeks from a group called Friends of Pakistan.

Kerkorian, Cerberus Retreat Spotlights Auto Collapse

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The retreat of billionaire Kirk Kerkorian and Cerberus Capital Management LP from stakes in Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC may leave the U.S. auto industry without new funding just as sales head to a 26-year low.
Kerkorian's Tracinda Corp. said yesterday it may sell its stake in Ford and investor Stephen Feinberg's Cerberus is seeking to merge Chrysler with General Motors Corp. or another automaker. The industry's recession started by $4-a-gallon gasoline and extended by the credit crunch following the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has battered investments in the U.S. car companies.
``I don't know where else they can turn right now, that's the problem,'' said Thomas Stallkamp, a former Chrysler Corp. president who is currently a partner at buyout firm Ripplewood Holdings LLC. ``There is nowhere to turn until the credit market opens up, and even then the market will be nervous about automakers until the outlook for 2009 is clearer.
