CDC Closes Some Labs after Serious Mishaps Handling Dangerous Pathogens

I was doing my usual Internet browsing/research when I came across a pretty amazing article at bustle.com
It seems the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has had some epic mishaps lately.  The CDC is responsible investigating and helping to prevent massive infections of scary diseases such as Anthrax, Avian Flu, and other nasty pathogens.
So… of course one would think if that is your main task, you'd be "on it" when it came to containing these pretty nasty bugs right?  As it turns out, no so much.  Nothing makes me chuckle quite so much as the words "I'm from the government and I'm here to help and make things better".  Needless to say, this is another classic example of that being exactly the opposite of what has happened.
Without ruining the story, I'll provide the link.  Take a read and tell me if it doesn't scare you just a little bit...
