Secretary of State Antony Blinken proclaimed the Biden administration will “get to the bottom” of the origins of the coronavirus outbreak. How will they do this? We don’t know and apparently they don’t either.
Blinken spoke with Axios over the weekend about how the US will put pressure on China to allow an investigation of the Wuhan lab that potentially leaked the virus. When the interviewer asked point blank, Blinken started off with the hope that other countries will help out.
“I think the international community is clear that the international community has to have access, it has to have information…”
The interviewer interrupts with a but HOW.
It seems the plan is to cross our fingers in hopes that China will be transparent, because after all that is what they are known for…telling the truth.
“At the end of the day, it’s profoundly in China’s interest to do this as well, because, look, it suffered too in the outbreak of this pandemic. It presumably has an interest as well, especially if it purports to be a responsible international actor, to do everything it can to provide all the information it has to make sure we can hopefully prevent this from happening again.”
So there you have it, the master plan relies in hoping China will come around.
