The agency in question is the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO). It is the Australian federal government's main agency responsible for conducting scientific research. CSIRO gained notoriety last year when investigators unveiled its ties with the WIV, where the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) most likely originated.
This investigation was conducted by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), another Australian government agency. It found that the government, through CSIRO, has funded or conducted gain-of-function research on at least 17 projects, some of which "could be categorized as "of concern" because it involved modifying a virus or bacterium in a way that may make it more dangerous to humans."
Maria Zeee, during an interview with Stew Peters on "The Stew Peters Show," noted that the investigation that found CSIRO's connections to the WIV and to other gain-of-function research projects is unbelievable because of how willing the government was to admit that this was happening. (Related: Groundbreaking lawsuit filed against Peter Daszak, Ralph Baric over SARS-CoV-2 gain of function research and hazardous RELEASE.)
"It's unbelievable, Stew, that they have openly admitted to the fact that we've been doing this for 10 years in this country," she said. "I think that the past two years of the terror that we've been subjected to has really sparked the people to look deeper into this."
Zeee noted that CSIRO is calling on the Australian government to further expand the ability of research institutions like it to conduct, fund or otherwise support gain-of-function research. She believes this is a way to legalize more research into biological weapons.
"They're hiding the development of biological weapons here in Australia," said Zeee. "They're calling it 'research,' but it is clearly biological weapons creation."
Zeee noted that CSIRO fully admitted to all of this in the NHMRC's report. The agency also admitted to not being able to go into detail about where its biological weapons research projects are being conducted and who is involved because the participants are worried about their safety.
"Oh, I wonder why that is?" said Zeee, sarcastically. "Maybe because you're creating biological weapons that could kill millions? Just a thought."
The report goes on to talk about Australia's "Defense and Strategic Goods List." It is a list that specifies goods, software or technology that are heavily regulated when exported, supplied, brokered or published. A permit from the government is usually required to handle goods on this list.
According to the NHMRC's report, on top of that list are biological weapon agents or "biological materials that are adapted or configured to produce casualties in humans or animals, degrade equipment or damage crops or the environment."
CSIRO has made multiple excuses for why it is necessary for the organization to continue gain-of-function research on potential biological weapons. Zee noted that this includes claims that it needs to help Australia strengthen its pandemic preparedness, especially since the spillover of diseases from animals to humans will become more common due to climate change.
