Chinese Foreign Ministry Exposes Michael Gordon’s Wuhan Lies as War Provocation
June 5, 2021 (EIRNS)—Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin blew the whistle on Wall Street Journal fraudster Michael Gordon, at his regular press briefing on June 4. “Not long ago,” Wang said, “Michael R. Gordon, an American journalist, by quoting a so-called ‘previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report,’ hinted a far-fetched connection between the ‘three sick staff’ at the Wuhan lab and the Covid-19 outbreak. Nineteen years ago, it was this very reporter who concocted false information by citing unsubstantiated sources about Iraq’s ‘attempt to acquire nuclear weapons,’ which directly led to the Iraq War.”
As EIR has reported, it was Gordon, who was then working at the New York Times, who teamed up with the infamous liar and leaker Judith Miller to publish the first claim that Saddam was building nuclear weapons. The Sept. 8, 2002 article was titled, “Threats and Responses: The Iraqis; U.S. Says Hussein Intensifies Quest for A-Bomb Parts.”
RT reports that the lies about Wuhan Institute of Virology were quickly spread across all the fake-news press, and days later Biden switched his stated opinion that the World Health Organization should be involved in any investigation of the Wuhan lab, to calling on the Intelligence Community to make up their own account.
