    If you thought Solyndra was bigtime corruption, wait until you read the details of the Siga scandal. David Willman of the Los Angeles Times reveals a huge no-bid contract bearing all the signs of intervention from above, that could dwarf Solyndra. It involves the health and safety of the American poeple, and a squandering of taxpayer resources.

    The Department of Health and Human Services has signed a no-bid contracted with Siga Technologies for as much as much as 2.8 billion dollars' worth of a high priced drug, for a terrorism threat that may not exist. The drug's effectiveness is unknown because it cannot be tested on humans. The threat it is intended to counter is an attack based on Smallpox (which has been eradicated and only "is known to exist only in the locked freezers of a Russian scientific institute and the U.S. government.")

    A large stockpile of effective and inexpensive smallpox vaccine already exists. The new drug is intended to be used after exposure to smallpox in the event of a bioterrorism attack.

    These Execs have to be big campaign donors like Solyndra. The can't even test their drug on humans yet they're gonna give them $Billions in Taxpayer Money? Man this stuff is just blatant corrupt cronyism at this point. It's very sad.

    Yea it's so brazen. This is what happens when you have a Boot-Licking Press in your corner. The Liberal Press got him elected so they've made a big investment in him. If he were a Republican,CNN and NBC would be calling for mass resignations 24/7. No justice. Makes you depressed.

    Solar and wind power is pouring money down the toilet. Stupid doesn't even rise high enough to discribe what Obama is doing.

    Aye carumba. Everything this administration pulls with awarding $$$ is just a money laundering scheme on a grand scale.

    It's just surreal at this point.
