Today, the White House Homeland Security Council Issued A One-Year Report On The Administration's Progress In Implementing The National Strategy For Pandemic Influenza. The United States is better positioned today to detect an outbreak of pandemic flu earlier, to support an international effort to contain the pandemic in its earliest stages, to limit the spread of a pandemic, and to save lives.
In May 2006, The Administration Issued The National Strategy For Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan, Which Provides A Roadmap To Achieve The Federal Government's Pandemic Preparedness And Response Goals.
We Have Made Great Strides Over The Past Year To Complete The Actions Outlined In The Implementation Plan. Eighty-six percent of all actions due within 12 months under the Implentation Plan have been completed. The remaining 14 percent of actions are in progress and are expected to be completed by the 18-month mark.
Of course, once Team Bush gets ahold of this, they'll appoint somebody totally unqualified to implement the Plan, then find some way to blame it on somebody else when it falls to pieces.
