Scientists: UN Soldiers Brought Deadly Superbug to Americas

Scientists: UN Soldiers Brought Deadly Superbug to Americas --Haiti had never seen a case of cholera until the arrival of UN peacekeepers. [That's why they went there - to bring it.] 12 Jan 2012 Compelling new scientific evidence suggests United Nations 'peacekeepers' have carried a virulent strain of cholera -- a super bug -- into the Western Hemisphere for the first time. The vicious form of cholera has already killed 7,000 people in Haiti, where it surfaced in a remote village in October 2010. Leading researchers from Harvard Medical School and elsewhere told ABC News that, despite UN denials, there is now a mountain of evidence suggesting the strain originated in Nepal, and was carried to Haiti by Nepalese soldiers who came to Haiti to serve as UN peacekeepers after the earthquake that ravaged the country on Jan. 12, 2010 -- two years ago today.
