Nothing to Sneeze At
Just so we are clear on this: an American firm accidently sent a known killer flu virus to Saudi Arabia? Let's hope that (A) the labs there have already tested and destroyed their samples, (B) that there are no Wahabbist scientists working in those labs and that they will destroy the samples. Certainly a virus that has killed several million people and that has not been vaccinated against in almost 40 years could become a nifty little bio-weapon, especially if you don't mind martyring a lot of your people in the process.
