QinetiQ -- Key Player in the Military-Industrial-Biosecurity-Complex

ticker: QQ (LSE)

spun off from the MoD in June 2001, with the Carlyle Group taking a major stake. it went public on the LSE in 2006. in 2007 QQ bought out Analex (great name!), formerly Hadron Inc, a contractor to a certain famous Company in Virgina. Analex had (or has -- still figuring this out) a subsidiary call Advanced Biosystems, headed by renowned viral marketing expert Ken Alibek.

as for the share price of QQ, it looks like it might actually go up, at least for a while. but eventually dots get connected...
