Korean Govt Says Hwang Never Cloned Stem Cells

From LifeNews

Government prosecutors investigating the faked embryonic stem cell research supposedly conducted by Hwang Woo-suk and his colleagues have confirmed that his team never created patient-specific embryonic stem cells that would supposedly overcome rejection issues.
Park Han-cheol of Seoul District Prosecutors' Office, who is leading the Hwang probe, told the Korean Herald newspaper, "there is no possibility that NT-1 is a cloned somatic stem cell."

"There is no doubt about this in the scientific field," he added.

What this means is that all the embryonic stem cell research being proposed is based on something that has yet to be attained. Wouldn't those billions of dollars being proposed in state legislatures across the country be better spent on research that has yielded more concrete results, such as adult stem cell research?
