Department of Homeland Security to destroy swine flu victims

Harsh measures to combat pig plague

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

It's evident that the US of A's Department of Homeland Security is taking the H1N1 threat very seriously indeed, and we reckon that Secretary Janet Napolitano may have been taking some advice from Condoleeeeza "Waterboarding" Rice as to how to apply a "Guantánamo Bay" solution to the menace posed by swine flu.

Here's an extract from Napolitano's statement yesterday on the current state of pig plague play:

We're also actively monitoring travellers at our land, sea, and air ports. We're watching them for signs of illness, and we have appropriate protocols in place to deal with those who are sick. Precautions are being taken to protect travellers and border personnel. Anyone exhibiting symptoms is being referred to an isolation room where they can be evaluated by a public health official before proceeding to their destruction.

Fair enough, and if that fails, here's Ms Rice's next piece of advice to Napolitano: "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." ®
