ExFed Authors Deny Disclosing National Secrets
GRAND RAPIDS, MI. December 28, 2011 – Micah House Media denied today that its suspense authors Diane Munson and David Munson violated any laws or confidences about the weaponization of the H5N1 flu virus. Their disclosure appeared in the January, 2011 novel “Redeeming Liberty,” which revealed how Iran had weaponized H5N1. The Munsons’ revelation came five months before a Rotterdam virologist publically admitted he had genetically altered the virus to make it airborne.
On December 26, 2011, the New York Times reported “the Rotterdam discovery has led advisers to the United States government, which paid for the research, to urge that the details be kept secret and not published in scientific journals to prevent the work from being replicated by terrorists, hostile governments or rogue scientists.”
In their novel, Diane Munson, a former Federal prosecutor and David Munson, a former Special Agent with NCIS and the Drug Enforcement Administration describe Iran’s attempt to create a bioweapon of airborne H5N1 more dangerous than smallpox and the 1918 Spanish flu, which were estimated to have killed at least 50 million people.
The authors assert that though their novels reveal events that may be occurring in the U.S. Government, they deny violating secrecy laws. Questions to the authors about their contacts with sources still in the U.S. government went unanswered.
