Lawmakers Warn Americans to Avoid DNA Testing Services for Fear of Possible Lethal Biological Attacks

Remember that one time you sent your DNA in to see what kind of mutt you really are? One US Representative is saying you may have made a fatal choice.

Like something out of Black Mirror or Outer Limits, DNA capture technology could allow rogue regimes to construct elaborate assassination programs that target specific DNA and never be caught.

Several lawmakers have been loud about what they feel is a threat all Americans need to take seriously.

Representative Jason Crow (D-CO) was very clear when speaking to the Aspen Security Forum on Friday in Aspen Colorado. 

He said: 

“There are now weapons under development, and developed, that are designed to target specific people. That’s what this is, where you can actually take someone’s DNA, you know, their medical profile, and you can target a biological weapon that will kill that person or take them off the battlefield or make them inoperable.”

Crow is a member of the committees that oversee the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence community. He was referring to private DNA testing agencies and is concerned about how freely people hand over their information.

“People will very rapidly spit into a cup … and guess what? Their DNA is now owned by a private company… that data is actually going to be procured and collected by our adversaries for the development of these systems,” Crow explained.

Army General Richard Clarke, the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, was the first to spark the debate and pointed at the political threat posed by Russia and its willingness to freely assassinate.

Possible food insecurities were the focus of concern for Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He believes that the agriculture system could be targeted and crippled through biological DNA-related weapons.

You may just want to read that contract twice before signing it.
