The press and the government have created a sense of urgency about protecting ourselves from the Avian Flu.

CNN tells us that, "The U.S. government has started stockpiling Tamiflu and other medicines that scientists believe might be effective against a pandemic virus."

Who was the Chairman of Board of Gilead until he resigned to join the Bush Administration? Who retains a large amount of pharmaceutical industry stock including Gilead's?

Donald Rumsfeld.
