There is currently an e-mail circulating that points a finger at Donald Rumsfeld for allegedly misleading the public-at-large regarding the “impending” Bird Flu Pandemic. According to the e-mail, Rumsfeld profited hugely from the sale of the patent for Tamiflu, marketed by Roche Laboratories, while he was president of Gilead Sciences, Inc.

This e-mail is misleading in some places, and patently false in others. Before you jump to conclusions, I recommend you check out this website. Then decide for yourself how much preparation you think is necessary.
