Before America became a nation, the regional powers which governed what would become the United States, used terrorism, mass murder, as well as biological and germ warfare to destroy and spread disease and epidemics among Native Americans. One of the first attacks (1) was initiated by General Jeffrey Amherst, who also lent his name to what became the town and college of Amherst, Massachusetts (2,3,4).
According to Frank Prentice Rand, author of The Village of Amherst: A Landmark of Light, “Amherst” was “the most glamorous military hero in the New World.” However, as detailed in the Atlas of the North American Indian (2), and the Conspiracy of Pontiac and the Indian War after the Conquest of Canada (3) this glamorous military hero authorized the distribution of smallpox infected blankets and handkerchiefs to be used as germ warfare against American Indians.
In a letter to Colonel Henry Bouquet, commander of British forces, he asked, “Could it not be contrived to send the Small Pox among those disaffected tribes of Indians? We must on this occasion use every stratagem in our power to reduce them.” Bouquet answered back, “I will try to inoculate them with some blankets that may fall into their hands and take care not to get the disease myself.”
As documented in the notebooks of William Trent (5), commander of the local militia of the townspeople of Pittsburgh: on May 24, 1763 “we gave them two Blankets and an Handkerchief out of the Small Pox Hospital. I hope it will have the desired effect.”
A small pox epidemic quickly spread among the men, women, and children belonging to the tribe of Chief Pontiac (3).
General Amherst was so impressed at the effectiveness of germ warfare that in a letter to Colonel Henry Bouquet, dated 16 July 1763, he made biological warfare official American policy and ordered the distribution of small pox infected blankets to “inoculate the Indians” and suggested that Bouquet “try Every other method that can serve to Extirpate this Execrable Race.” In a letter dated 26 July 1763, Bouquet acknowledges Amherst’s letter and confirmed that “all your Directions will be observed” (4).
One hundred years later, the use of germ warfare had also become U.S. policy. Periodically, throughout the 19th century, the U.S. Army distributed contaminated goods and blankets to Native Americans (6,7,8,9), including those already confined to concentration camps (euphemistically referred to as “reservations”). The purpose of these biological attacks was the extermination and mass murder of American Indians. However, the biological agents now included Variola which can be stored in a dried state, as well as cholera and small pox. Again, the method of infection was through the distribution of blankets and other supplies that were to be distributed to the Indians (6,7,8,9).
For example, “in 1847 the small pox, before unknown among them, carried off a large part of the [Cayuse] tribe. The Cayuse, believing that the missionaries were the cause of it, attacked the mission on November 29, 1847, killed Dr. Whitman and thirteen others, and destroyed the mission. As a matter of fact, there seems little question that the infection was brought into the country in supplies intended for the use of the mission” (9).
In the year 1900, the U.S. Army began experimenting with a variety of biological weapons, some of which were used on American and foreign prisoners of war (10,11,12). The victims included five Filipino prisoners who were exposed to different varieties of plague, and 29 prisoners who were purposefully infected with Beriberi. In 1915, government agents began experimenting with toxins that would attack and destroy the brain and central nervous system. Twelve Americans held in a Mississippi prison were ex posed to pellagra.
Widespread development and testing of chemical and bio logical weapons ensued in America, Britain, and Germany (10,11,12,13,14). But, in the U.S. some of the first victims were again, Americans, including thousands of U.S. soldiers who were exposed to Lewisite, phosgene, and chlorine bombs (10,11). The tests were so successful, and so many soldiers sickened or died, that between 1916 and 1918 U.S. and British forces used 125,000 tons of phosgene, mustard gas and chlorine artillery shells against Germans soldiers causing an estimated 400,000 casualties.
The British and the U.S. were particularly fond of phosgene which has a lethal concentration 1/18th that of chlorine, and which causes a rather horrible death. Initially soldiers who inhaled phosgene would maybe cough a few times, and then go on fighting. However, over the next 48 hours the linings of their lungs would break down and they would drown and choke to death on their own blood and fluids. In June 1916, during the battle of the Somme, allied forces used a combination of phosgene and chlorine gas along a 17 mile front which then blew another 12 miles behind German lines, killing everyone and everything (1113).
Mustard gas was also a favorite. Initially, mustard gas causes only a slight irritation to eyes and throat, which then becomes worse and then excruciating. Mustard gas is a blistering agent, and causes hemorrhages and blisters on the skin as well as within the lungs and eyes. Men would be blinded and huge patches of skin would fall from their body (12,13).
Periodically, throughout the 1920s and 1930s, the U.S. Army deployed mustard gas against the men, women, and children of the Philippines and Puerto Rico who were protesting U.S. colonialism (15).
Mustard gas was not the only biological weapon employed. In 1931, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, a government agent under contract with the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, began infecting men, women and children with cancer cells. Later, as head of the U.S. Army Biological Weapons division, and a member of the Atomic Energy Commission, Rhoads directed secret radiation experiments which were conducted on thousands of unsuspecting U.S. citizens. In letters to the Department of Defense Rhoads openly advocated the “eradication” of dissidents with “germ bombs.” With regard to the people of Puerto Rico, Dr. Rhoads wrote: “What the island needs is not public health work, but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population.” Dr. Rhoads is alleged to have injected hundreds of Puerto Ricans with cancer (15).
Cornelius Rhoads later became a founder and first director of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Institute, which specializes in research on cancer.
As we shall see, Dr. Rhoads is not the only doctor associated with the Rockefeller Institute who advocated mass murder and who purposefully injected non-White races to deadly infections.
In 1931, the United States government began experimenting with syphilis. The first known victims were black men living in Tuskegee, Alabama (16). In 1932, U.S. Public Health Service doc tors withheld treatment to men who had been infected in order to study the course of the disease in living subjects. The men did not know they were experimental subjects in a government study. They thought they were receiving treatment for their illness. Instead, they were given placebos (16).
Thousands of American citizens were exposed to a variety of chemical and biological agents over the following ten years, including, in 1942, 400 men held prisoner in Chicago. They were infected with malaria in order to get “a profile of the disease.”
The United States government also authorized the American Energy Commission to secretly inject hospitalized patients with plutonium in order to “profile “the long term effects (17). Most of these individuals became terminally ill and died.
In the early 1940s, the U.S. and Britain began working on developing “anthrax bombs” which they intended to drop on German cities. According to Stanford University historian Prof. Barton J Bernstein: “British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was ad vised that 1,000 projectiles, each of 500 pounds and containing 106 four pound anthrax bombs, could destroy life in a 25 mile area. Potential targets included Berlin, Hanberg, Frankfurt, Aachen and Wilhelmshafen.”
Because the Germans surrendered before any of these anthrax bombs could be tested on German civilians, these biological bombs were instead dropped on the villagers of Gruinard, an is land off the northwest coast of Scotland. In consequence, not only did most of the sheep and the villagers become ill and died, but the island became uninhabitable for more than 45 years (11).
After the defeat of Nazi Germany and Japan, the United States government recruited and employed hundreds of Nazi and Japanese doctors who had conducted horrific biological experiments on prisoners of war, including captured American servicemen (18). Among the more notorious was Dr. Shiro Ishii, who the U.S. Army happily put on its payroll (19,20). As the director of the Japanese Imperial Army’s bio-warfare unit, Dr. Ishii had authorized the use of an incredible array of chemical and of biological agents against American, British, Australian, Russian, and Chinese troops and pris oners of war. Ishii experimented with syphilis, typhoid-laced tomatoes, tetanus, plague-infected fleas, as well as germ bombs which were dropped on civilians and prisoners tied naked to wooden stakes. Those who survived these experiments were then dissected without anesthetic, while still alive (19,20).
The United States was most eager to obtain his expertise. In a deal arranged by General Douglas MacArthur—a man who twenty years earlier had ordered his soldiers to shoot U.S. workers who had gone on strike for better wages— Ishii became an invited lecturer at the U.S. Army bio-weapons center in Frederick Maryland.
The U.S. Army also obtained over 10,000 pages of Ishii’s “research findings.”
Nazi know-how was also exploited by the CIA and U.S. government (18). For example, at the close of World War II, U.S, Intelligence agencies raided the labs and offices of IG Farben, the German conglomerate which produced a number of nerve agents. Hundreds of Farben doctors and Nazi research scientists were recruited by Dulles and friends.
Although many Nazi doctors were hanged, just as many be came agents of the CIA and United States government, including Walter Schreiber, who helped conduct many of the Nazi medical experiments at Dachau. Yet another famous Nazi, Dr. Josef Mengele—the ultra-sadistic “angel of death”— also began working for the good ‘ol USA (20).
In fact, prior to and during the war with Nazi Germany, Mengele, and other Nazis doctors, were funded in part, through the Rockefeller foundation, and thus already had a connection to America and Allen Dulles who would become head of the CIA.
When it became evident that Germany would lose the war, Bill Donovan, head of the OSS, and Allen Dulles, OSS head of intelligence operations in Europe operating out of Switzerland, hatched a plan, in 1944, to recruit thousands of Nazi intelligence officers, industrialists, and scientists, and bring them to the United States, where they would then be put to work for various U.S. government and military agencies controlled by the OSS.
Dulles was perfectly suited for this role due in part to his duties as a Nazi gobetween for Bush, Harriman, and Rockefeller (see chapters 2,3,4).
Unbeknownst to President Roosevelt, who was already considering bringing charges of treason against Dulles, Bush, Harriman and others (see chapter 3,4), nearly 10,000 intelligence officers, known as T-Forces, landed right behind Allied battalions on the D Day invasion of June 1944. Their primary mission was to arrest and seize German scientists and their research materials, along with munitions experts and technicians, and then place them in an internment camp known as the “Dustbin” where they could then be interrogated and debriefed. However, many of these TForce intelligence officers, were in fact scientists and high ranking corporate officials, whose main allegiance was not to the United States gov ernment, but to the Rockefellers, the Harrimans, the Bush family, and the corporations they worked for.
Dulles and gang were essentially engaging in what could be termed a “hostile corporate takeover.” German assets would thus become the assets of U.S. corporations linked to Dulles, Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller, et al. In December 1944, after Roosevelt began to receive reports of what they were intending, he informed Bill Donovan and Allen Dulles, in no uncertain terms that he was completely opposed to their plan. Nevertheless they and their al lies continued to try to convince him to give permission for these Nazi scientists to come to the U.S. and to work for U.S. corpora tions. In order to make Roosevelt more agreeable, they added that these Nazis would not be allowed to profit from their misdeeds— only the U.S. corporations that they went to work for. As summed up by Dulles: If these Nazis were “given permission for entry into the United States after the war….their earnings [would be placed] on deposit in an American bank and the like.”
Roosevelt was outraged and turned Dulles down flat: “We expect that the number of Germans who are anxious to save their skins and property will rapidly increase. Among them may be some who should properly be tried for war crimes, or at least arrested for active participation in Nazi activities. Even with the necessary controls you mention, I am not prepared to authorize the giving of guarantees.”
Dulles wasn’t worried. Roosevelt would soon be dead. Soon after Roosevelt’s death, and with the blessing of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Dulles initiated “Operation Overcast” in July 1945. Initially, 350 Nazi scientists, chemical weapons designers, and ballistics and rocketry experts and engineers, including SS officers, Dr. Herbert Axster, Dr. Arthur Rudolph, Georg Richkey, Kurt Blome, and Werner Von Braun and his V2 rocket team, were smuggled into the United States. This initial shipment was followed by several others, in an operation called, “Operation Paper Clip.” Over 1000 Nazi doctors and SS scientists, including Hermann Becker-Freyseng and Konrad Schaeffer, were illegally brought to the United States where they were put to work for major corporations and government agencies including what would become NASA and the CIA (18,21,21,22).
Sigmund Rascher, Hermann BeckerFreyseng and Konrad Schaeffer, were typical Nazis. These doctors, scientists, and others of their ilk, labored away in concentration camps, such as Dachau where they conducted research on how prisoners would react to burning, drowning, gassing, wound infections, and high altitude tests (23). These and other Nazi doctors purposefully inflicted “battlefield traumas” on male and female prisoners, and would study the healing process after these wounds were filled with gangrene cultures, sawdust, mustard gas, broken glass, metal shavings, and on so. The wounds would then be sewn up and the prisoners would be observed to see how long it took them to die.
Even before they came to the U.S. Hermann Becker-Freyseng and Konrad Schaeffer, were already quite famous, and had authored the study “Thirst and Thirst Quenching in Emergency Situations at Sea” (24). These experiments took place at Dachau. Concentration camp prisoners had salt water injected into their veins or forced down their throats through tubes. In one set of experiments, half were given berkatit, a toxic drug which was supposed to make salt water more palatable. During the course of these experiments, liver tissue would be extracted without the benefit of anesthetic. All the research subjects died.
Dulles and gang were quite pleased to have recruited these men. Becker Freyseng and Schaeffer received long-term contracts under Paperclip (22). Schaeffer ended up in Texas, where he con tinued his research into “thirst and desalinization of salt water,” whereas Becker-Freyseng was put to work for the U.S. Air Force during which he composed a multi-volume work, entitled “German Aviation Medicine: World War II,” which was published by the US Air Force. Becker-Freyseng had the honor of writing the introduction.
Dr. Sigmund Rascher, also performed human research at Dachau. His specialty was the reaction of humans to high altitudes, which he tested via a special low pressure chamber which simulated altitudes of up to 68,000 feet. Hundreds of men were locked inside, one at a time, and many where kept there for up to 30 minutes without oxygen. Once they became unconscious, these men would be dragged from the chamber and drowned in vats of ice water. Some were immediately revived, and were then subject to further experimentation. For example, while still alive and breathing, Rascher would cut open their skulls in order to determine how many blood vessels had burst due to air embolisms.
According to Rascher’s meticulous notes: “Some experiments gave men such pressure in their heads that they would go mad and pull out their hair in an effort to relieve such pressure. They would tear at their heads and faces with their hands and scream in an effort to relieve pressure on their eardrums.”
Richkey was the camp supervisor at the Dora concentration camp where prisoners were worked to death in the Mitteiwerk complex, or as slave labor for Von Braun (25). Richkey was a sadist, who enjoyed using Christian symbolism when killing Jews. For example, he would often have them hung twelve at a time from factory cranes—in honor of Christ and his 12 disciples— and would order that wooden sticks be shoved into their mouths and down their throats to muffle their cries.
Dulles consider Richkey to be an intelligence asset. After he was smuggled into the United States, Richkey was put to work at Wright Field, an Army Air Corps base, in Ohio, where his duties included providing security for his fellow Nazis. He was also employed as a translator, and was given the task of translating all of the records from the Mitteiwerk factory.
In 1947, columnist, Drew Pearson, wrote a scathing article about Richkey and some of the others Nazis working for the U.S. government.
Dulles, through his surrogates, denounced Pearson as un American and explained that his concerns were unrealistic (26). Bosquet Wev, head of JOIA, dismissed complaints about the scientists’ Nazi pasts as “a picayune detail.” He argued that if the U.S. were to have left these Nazi scientists in Germany, they could have been recruited by the Soviets. If that had happened, it would have presented “a far greater security threat to this country than any former Nazi affiliation they may have had or even any Nazi sympathies which they may still have.” To complain about their past, was ancient history, Wev went on, it was like “beating a dead horse” (26,27).
Of course, if Richkey and the others had been put to death for their crimes, there would have been no reason to beat these “dead horses.”
On the other hand, if they had been put to death, it would have taken the U.S years to catch up to German science in the fields of rockets, jets, chemical and biological weaponry, and other weapons of mass destruction (27).
Armed with Nazi and Imperial Japanese bio-warfare know how, the United States government and its intelligence agencies (which had been taken over by the Bush-Walker-Dulles clique), began conducting widespread terrorist attacks on American citi zens. Indeed, Americans were sprayed like bugs with bacterial “aerosols” and exposed to a variety of dangerous chemical, bio logical and radiological agents designed to cause death and debilitating disease (10,16,28,29,30,31,32).
Unit 731 Japanese Torture & Human Medical Experiments
For example, families arriving or leaving Washington’s National Airport and the main bus station of our Nation’s capital, were sprayed with biological agents via specially equipped suitcases. Passengers riding the subways of New York, were exposed to “bro ken” light bulbs that leaked bacteria. The men, women and children of Savannah, Georgia, and Avon Park, Florida, were exposed to hundreds of millions of mosquitoes infected by the U.S, Army with dengue fever and yellow fever. A slum in St. Louis was “misted” with bacterial agents. Drivers cruising along the Pennsylvania Turnpike were exposed to bacterial clouds. The city of San Francisco was sprayed with bacterial “aerosols” (Serratia marcescens) which sickened and killed scores of innocent victims. Indeed, almost a dozen individuals became ill with diseases directly associated with Serratia marcescens contamination.
When some of the secret attacks on San Francisco came to light, and victims began to file suit, the U.S. Army, although not denying that the attacks occurred, argued that the outbreak of rare bacterial infections that sickened and killed so many, including one man who died 30 days after he had been exposed, “was pure coincidence” (28).
Civilians were not the only targets. Beginning in the late 1940s, U.S. soldiers again became victims of biological and chemical attacks. In 1951, for example, the U.S. government secretly exposed black sailors and black seamen working at the Norfolk Naval Supply Center, to highly infectious bacterial agents. Black men were purposefully exposed because it was believed that blacks were more likely to get sick than whites. Hundreds became sickened. A similar experiment was undertaken later that year at Washington, DC’s National Airport. The bacteria was later linked to food and blood poisoning and respiratory problems.
Not uncommonly soldiers were exposed in secret, without their knowledge, and with no concern for their welfare. In other instances hundreds, thousands, and even tens of thousands of soldiers were ordered to “volunteer.”
For example, it has been documented that over 7,000 military personnel and 1,074 civilians were given mind-disabling and mind-damaging drugs at just one facility in the 1950s and early 1960s: Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland. Those receiving the drugs were sometimes drugged in secret, whereas other were lied to as to what drugs they were being given. The health or long-term consequences were of no interest to the experimenters, as there were no followup studies (10). The goal was to see if the men got sick.
As admitted by the United States Government, in a 1994 re port issued by the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’Affairs (10). “For at least 50 years, DOD [Department of Defense] has intentionally exposed military personnel to potentially dangerous sub stances, often in secret.” This same Committee also noted that the “DOD has demonstrated a pattern of misrepresenting the danger of various military exposures that continues today.”
Beginning almost immediately after the Nazification of the CIA (28,33), and the Nazification of the Department of Defense, and other agencies within the U.S. government (18,22,25), tens of thousands of American men, women, and children, and often, en tire schools, towns, and American cities, became targets of U.S. sponsored biological and chemical warfare and secret drug and radiation exposure (17,2832).
In 1949, the U.S. Army and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) discovered that burn victims, both human and animal, that were treated with radiation, had a death rate five time higher than those who were not treated. Subsequently, Dr. Everrett Idris Evans, in a letter to the AEC proposed and then carried out additional human experiments, injecting patients at three local hospitals with radiation. The purpose of the study, he admitted was “purely investigational with no therapeutic benefit.” Rather the U.S. Army wished to better understand the effects of radiation, such as fol lowing a nuclear attack (17).
Similar studies were conducted on children in 1950. The Atomic Energy Commission funded secret experiments where children attending the Fernald school in Massachusetts, were fed a porridge laced with radioactive milk. They were also given radio active injections (17).
In September 1950, Serratia marcescens and Bacillus globigii were released from ships in the San Francisco Bay area (28).
In 1952 and 1953, the U.S. Army dropped aerosol “bombs” and began spraying the men, women, and children of six American and Canadian cities with biological agents in order assess the dispersal patterns of chemical and biological weapons. Army records indicate that respiratory illnesses became rife in all the cities effected, including Winnipeg, Canada (28).
In 1953, the CIA and the U.S. Army conducted secret bio logical and chemical attacks on 239 United States cities, secretly exposing American adults and their children to a variety of toxic chemicals and biological and bacterial agents, including zinc cadmium sulfide. Children were specially targeted as it was believed they would be more easily infected than adults. The children were sprayed like bugs (2832).
In one instance, U.S. Army personnel invaded the small town of Clinton, Minneapolis, spraying school children, from the roof of a nearby home, with zinc cadmium sulfide. When caught red handed, U.S. Army personnel explained that they were conducting “air raid” tests; an explanation readily accepted by gullible school and town officials. But it wasn’t an “air raid.” It was war—a bio logical war being carried out by the CIA and the U.S. Defense Dept. on U.S. citizens (31,32).
In the town of Clinton, dozens of adults and children developed health problems, and years later, dozens more were unable to have children or gave birth to babies with severe birth defects and profound developmental disabilities.
Carol Thomas and Diane Gorney were in the first and fourth grades at Clinton School when the U.S. Army sprayed them like insects. Like many of her school mates, Diane Gorney can’t have children. Others, like Carol Thomas, gave birth to children with severe developmental disorders.
Fifteen women attended fourth grade at the Clinton school with Diane Gorney. Eight of them suffered over 25 miscarriages in total. The other seven, like Diane Gorney are sterile (31).
“We used to wonder if there was something wrong with the water at Clinton,” Gorney recalls.
It wasn’t the water. It was the United States Government.
Children were again attacked by the U.S. government in 1955 when the CIA released clouds of whooping cough virus in Pal metto, Florida. Hundreds of children became severely ill and over a dozen died (28).
In 1960 the U.S. Army Chemical Corps released hundreds of millions of mosquitoes, specially bred at Fort Detrick, Maryland, to be used as carriers to spread yellow and dengue fever and other diseases.
Yellow fever is a frightful virus that causes fever, chills, excruciating abdominal cramps, diarrhea, jaundice, and severe head, back, arm and leg pain. Soon the skin turns yellow, accompanied by repeated vomiting of blood.
According to a U.S. Army brochure, scientists at Fort Detrick, study “some of the most virulent and pathogenic microorganisms which are threats to U.S. military forces.” These pathogens include “Lassa fever virus, Ebola virus, various hemorrhagic fever viruses, botulism and anthrax toxins, T2 and other mycotoxins, equine encephalomyelitis, Q fever, tularemia, yellow fever, and Rift valley fever.”
Among some of the first victims of the virulent and pathogenic microorganisms developed at Fort Detrick, were the citizens of Avon Park and Carver Village, Florida, and Savannah, Georgia, the vast majority of whom were blacks (28). Within weeks of the first exposures, hundreds of men, women, and children became sickened with typhoid, mysterious fevers, chills, excruciating abdominal cramps, breathing problems including bronchitis, as well as neurological disorders such as encephalitis. Yet others dropped dead and mysteriously died.
Army researchers not only purposefully infected these innocent victims, they disguised themselves as doctors, nurses, and public health workers and offered fake treatment in order to take tissue samples and to photograph the results of their handiwork.
This biological terrorist attack, conducted by the United States government on its own citizens was a resounding success! Three years later, the CIA again released millions of disease carrying mosquitoes. The target: The women, men, and children of Cuba who were infected with Dengue fever. The fever killed 188 men, women and children.
Although the U.S. denies it, a biological attack on Cuba is mentioned in CIA documents from project “MKULTRA.” These documents refers to toxin studies and biological warfare conducted on Cuba (34). Within these documents, there is also a “sub-project-” involving the collection of “botanicals” and which involved a man on a diverted freighter and the delivery of toxins to Panama. These documents may refer to several biological attacks on Cuba, including a 1971 attack where the first documented cases of swine fever in the western hemisphere showed up. A CIA operative later admitted that he delivered the virus to Cuban exiles in Panama, who carried the virus into Cuba.
Americans were attacked because they were convenient. Cubans were attacked because they were “communists.” Presumably, the “communist” connection explains why the people of Managua, Nicaragua were also felled by an epidemic of dengue fever during the Reagan-Bush administration. Nearly 50,000 people became sickened with the fever and hundreds died. This was the first major outbreak of dengue fever in Nicaragua in over 50 years and it occurred following a series of low-level “reconnaissance” flights over the capital city (35).
As alleged by Stephen Endicott and Edward Hagerman, in their book, The United States and Biological Warfare, the United States also secretly used biological weapons on Koreans and Chinese civilians. In 1952 eyewitness’s report observing U.S. planes dropping containers filled with insects. Within days, Korean and Chinese men, women and children became infected and began dying of mysterious diseases (35). Note—these were not soldiers who died, but civilians.
In 1964 and 1965, the U.S. government again began con ducting nationwide biological terrorists attacks against U.S. citi zens. According to government officials, the purpose of these at tacks was to assess the Nation’s “vulnerability” to an “enemy launched epidemic of smallpox.” However, in carrying out these attacks, American men, women, and children were the designated “enemy.” In one set of experiments, they were attacked by CIA and U.S. Army agents, who strolled through various airports and bus terminals, carrying specially adapted suitcases equipped with atomizers designed to release a bacterialaden mist on unsuspect ing travelers.
As detailed in a 79 page U.S. government document, “Miscellaneous Publication 7,” U.S. Army agents, dressed as civilians, secretly sprayed tourists and employees working at the National Airport, with “Bacillus Subtilis.” The airport was chosen to deter mine the feasibility of infecting travelers who would then carry diseases, such as small pox, to other parts of the country thus infecting millions of U.S. citizens. After billions of germs were re leased, a random sample of victims were followed and secretly tested to determine if they had been contaminated. According to Miscellaneous Publication 7 “test team members, each with a suit case sampler, selected a passenger at random at the entrance to the North Terminal and covertly collected air samples in close proximity to the passenger.” The results were deemed a success. Mil lions of American citizens could be infected by just a few hundred victims who could spread the disease before they realized they were infected.
Yet another secret report, “Miscellaneous Publication 25” reveals how U.S. agents, using light bulbs filled with Bacillus subtilis, infected passengers riding the New York subway system in 1966. Army agents, dressed as civilians, broke and smashed the bacterialaden light bulbs against ventilator grates, atop roadbeds, and upon the rails, thus engulfing passengers with billowing clouds of bacteria which covered their clothes and which victims inhaled.
Many stopped with shock and surprise and attempted to brush the cloud of material from their clothes. Others, simply “brushed their clothing, looked up at the grating apron, and walked on.”
The following year the CIA launched a biological and chemical attack on the employees of the Food and Drug Administration headquarters in Washington, DC. CIA agents contaminated the drinking water with various chemicals. The CIA wished to deter mine if it was possible to poison and incapacitate health officials. If doctors and nurses or health officials with expertise in diagnosis, could be killed during the first phases of a biological attack, this would insure that even more victims within the general population would sicken and die (29).
How many became sickened by these “vulnerability tests” is unknown because the Army claims it did not bother to monitor the health of any of the exposed populations (28). Indeed, according to a 1994 staff report prepared for the Committee on Veterans’Affairs (28), the “DOD [Department of Defense] has repeatedly failed to comply with required ethical standards when using human subjects in military research during war or threat of war.” The “DOD used investigational drugs… in ways that were not effective. DOD and DVA [Department of Veterans’ Affairs] have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical followup to those who participate in military research or are ordered to take investigational drugs. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific stud ies that provide information about the reproductive problems experienced by veterans who were intentionally exposed to potentially dangerous substances. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific studies that provide timely information for compensation decisions regarding military personnel who were harmed by various exposures. Participation in military research is rarely included in military medical records, making it impossible to sup port a veteran’s claim for service connected disabilities from military research.”
However, in 1977, it was revealed in a special Senate hear ing that these “vulnerability” tests caused outbreaks of disease in dozens of test areas. Cases of influenza and pneumonia, for example, tripled in frequency in some test areas (28).
According to Dr. J. Mehsen Joseph, Director of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, by conducting biological warfare on U.S. citizens the U.S. government had created “an unjustifiable health hazard.” His opinion was seconded by other scientists who reported that “normally nonpathogenic microorganisms,” such as Bacillus subtilis, can cause serious infections and even fatal disease among children, the elderly, or individuals with weakened immune systems.
The Pentagon denied these reports, claiming that the “vulnerability tests… were a resounding success” and that the microorganisms and biological agents used in these tests were “harmless” (28).
Yet, we should ask: how would it be possible to gauge if the tests were a success if no one got sick and the bacterial agents were “harmless”?
When testing the reaction of U.S. soldiers to the effects of atomic explosions, they too were told that the tests were perfectly safe, as were the citizens of Utah and Nevada who were living down wind from the denotations (17). As a rehearsal for nuclear combat, soldiers were in fact ordered to march through these radioactive wastelands following atomic explosions. All were assured that there would be no risks to their health (17).
Of course, one of the primary purposes of such research is to gauge the effects of various debilitating agents on human health, beginning with the health of U.S. citizens. In this way, useful agents and dispersal methods can be identified for the purposes of attacking enemy combatants and the men, women, and children of other countries.
Consider, for example, the open air tests conducted over the city of Winnipeg. In 1953, a carcinogenic chemical, zinc cadmium sulphide, was sprayed over this city of 500,000 people (28,36). The U.S. military claimed that because this carcinogenic chemical had been watered down to a 1,000%attenuated form, nobody would get cancer. However, the entire purpose of this open air test was to determine how many people became ill, which is why Canada, with its nationalized health services and records keeping, was chosen as a target. The military wanted to know if there was an increase in the percentage of people seeking medical assistance because of severe cold-like and respiratory symptoms, including sniffles, sore throats, headaches, or ringing in their ears (28,36). Based on this data, the military hoped to determine what percentage of a population would become immediately incapacitated or develop cancer if the chemical had been used at full strength.
It was the results of such tests on the prison population of Holmesburg State Prison in Pennsylvania which led to the wide spread use of dioxin as a chemical warfare agent in Vietnam (37,38). Over 12 million gallons of dioxin, that is, “Agent Orange” was dumped on the citizens of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, as well as on the Marines and U.S. Army (38). Officially, “Agent Orange” was employed as a herbicide. One of its “unfortunate” side effects, however, is population control; i.e. a high rate of miscarriage and birth defects (37,38).
And that is exactly what happened in Vietnam. U.S. soldiers were also adversely effected. Although the U.S. government denies that dioxin is a factor in the debilitating dis eases developed by U.S. personnel who were exposed, the effects of dioxin was well known, which is why it was chosen. For example, in 1965, the U.S. Army and Dow Chemical repeatedly exposed 70 inmates at Holmesburg State Prison to dioxin (38). All developed skin rashes and lesions.
It was and continues to be the view of the political and military elite in this country, that despite the risks, it is the right of the United States government to expose American citizens to chemical and biological pathogens so as to protect “national security.”
In the Senate hearings held in 1977, we were in fact warned that the United States government reserved the right to continue attacking its own citizens in order to protect national security (28). According to Pentagon spokesperson, Lt. Colonel George A. Carruth, “additional tests” would be conducted in the future if the Army felt it necessary to assess our “vulnerability” to biological attacks (28).
The need to continue developing and testing chemical and biological weapons on U.S. citizens, including “open-air vulnerability tests,” was openly championed by the Reagan-Bush administration based on their allegations that the Soviet Union was developing offensive biological weapons and violating international agreements (39,40). The Reagan-Bush administration in fact received congressional approval to conduct research and development in the science of bio-defense, including pathogen genome sequencing, new vaccine research, and new therapeutics research, all of which would be conducted on human subjects; referred to as the Biological Defense Research Program.
As construed by the Reagan-Bush administration, the bio logical weapons protection program was to be part of an overall chemical and biological protection effort, which includes vulnerability testing and dual use DNA genetic engineering biotechnology.
According to the reasoning of the Reagan-Bush team, be cause “national security” was at stake, there are absolutely no moral or ethical reasons which should stand in the way of conducting additional “vulnerability tests” on U.S. and foreign citizens.
The Reagan-Bush administration did not just conduct “vulnerability tests” they engaged in biological warfare against the citizens of the US and other countries, including Nicaragua and Peru (41,42,43).
George Bush was Reagan’s point man in the U.S. government’s battle against the citizens of Nicaragua and its Sandinista government. The war, however, was illegal, which required that the United States use terrorism and clandestine methods, including biological warfare. The CIA began conducting “reconnaissance” flights over the capital city, Managua. Within days of the first low level flights, an epidemic of dengue fever began to rage throughout Managua. Over 50,000 people were infected (43).
As noted earlier in this chapter, this was not the first time the United States had engaged in germ warfare against a foreign people. In 1950, following successful tests on the citizens of San Francisco, the CIA and U.S. government are alleged to have use bio logical agents, including anthrax and fleas and mosquitoes contaminated with yellow fever, to attack civilians living in China and North Korea (35).
During the second term of the Reagan-Bush administration, Peruvian men, women and children were sprayed with Fusarium, a fungus which is used in biological warfare and which attacks crops and the human immune system. Fusarium is highly toxic. In the late 1980s, Peruvian peasants reported that American helicopters appeared over their villages and fields, releasing a “brownish smoke.” A few weeks later, a Fusarium epidemic began to spread (42).
In 1999, Jeb Bush, governor of Florida, began pushing a proposal to spray parts of Florida with Fusarium, so as to wipe out the state’s numerous marijuana farmers. However, Dr. David Struhs, head of Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, opposed the plan and pointed out that Fusarium was highly “mutagenic” and would also attack and destroy “tomatoes, peppers, flowers, corn and vines.”
In fact, Fusarium is highly toxic and attacks the immune system. In one study, it was found that the mortality rate among hospital patients who were immune deficient and infected by the fungus was 76%. The program is tantamount to biological warfare (44).
Bush was forced to abandon the plan.
The Bush clan is very fond of biological and chemical weapons. In open defiance of the 1972 treaty to ban such weapons, Donald Rumsfeld, Bush Jr. Secretary of Defense, has admitted in the year 2001, that the Pentagon operates a germ factory that has produced enough deadly bacteria to kill tens of millions of people (45). The Bush administration claims, however, that it must have these biological weapons for “National Security” describing them as “purely defensive.”
According to the Bush doctrine, “defensive weapons” can also be used preemptively and thus offensively; that is, to sicken, kill, and destroy the enemies of the United States before these enemies have the opportunity to attack the United States (46).
These “defensive” biological weapons the Bush team were developing included a weapon’s grade anthrax so potent that it can overwhelm the immune system of those who have taken anthrax vaccine (46)—such as U.S. soldiers and U.S. citizens. The first victims of this “weapon’s grade” anthrax were not U.S. soldiers, but American men, women, children and members of the media who were exposed in October of 2001.
Officially, “vulnerability testing” came to an end in 1969, when the United States and President Richard Nixon renounced the use of biological weapons and promised that it would destroy its arsenal of chemical and biological weapons. In 1972, the United
States, the Soviet Union, and 120 other nations signed the Biological Weapons Convention which prohibits the development, production, and stockpiling of biological weapons. And, in 1974, Congress enacted the National Research Act which was designed to prevent the U.S. government from attacking its own citizens with biological and chemical weapons.
Yet, unofficially, and thus in violation of these treaties and this act, the development and testing of biological weapons continued (45). American citizens continued to be victimized by the U.S. government. In 1974, when these treaty violations and unauthorized biological attacks first threatened to come to light, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, both top officials in the Ford ad ministration acted in concert to cover up these crimes.
Indeed, according to the children of one victim, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, were directly involved in the cover up. “For 22 years there was a cover-up. And then, under the guise of revealing everything, there was a new cover-up” (47).
As revealed in a July 11, 1975, memo from Dick Cheney to his boss, Donald Rumsfeld, Cheney defended the cover up on the grounds of “national security.”
In 2001, Cheney became vice-president of the USA, and Rumsfeld the secretary of Defense. Within 11 months the U.S. was terrorized by a series of anthrax attacks.
The Bush administration immediately engaged in a cover-up.
The CIA, and people like Dick Cheney and George Bush, are found of claiming “national security” as the motive for their nefarious acts. Let us be clear: those who cloak their actions in secrecy, have something to hide. When it comes to officials in the U.S. government and Republican administrations, all too often, “National Security” has been used as a euphemism to hide illegal behavior (48).
The classic example is the Nixon administration. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were also part of that criminal enterprise, whereas George H.W. Bush was the Chairman of the Republican Party.
Like Nixon, Bush and gang repeatedly claim “National Security” as an excuse for secrecy. And “National Security” has been repeatedly offered as an explanation for why Americans have been purposefully exposed to deadly biological agents.
We should ask ourselves, if perhaps part of the motive in conducting these tests has nothing to do with “national security” but everything to do with “financial security?” That is, if people get sick, they will seek a medical solution, they will buy drugs from the major pharmaceutical firms, some of which, like Bayer, are business partners with George H.W. Bush, and members of his previous administration. Indeed, George H.W. Bush in fact sits on the board of a number of pharmaceutical firms. Rumsfeld was the CEO of a pharmaceutical. These companies can only make money if people get sick, or if they become fearful of becoming ill and dying. Under these conditions, George Bush and friends get rich.
Consider, for example, the anthrax attacks which began soon after the 9/11/2001 terrorist assault on the World Trade Center. Ac cording to ABC News (49) sales of Bayer’s antibiotic Cipro sky rocketed by over 1,000%. Terrified consumers were spending $700 per person for a two month supply of the drug which normally sells for around $20.
Bayer, as noted, is in business with George H.W. Bush (50). Bayer also has a most insidious past, as it was once known by the name of IG Farben. IG Farben is the Nazi chemical concern which ran many of Hitler’s concentration camps, and which funded Nazi experiments on prisoners, and manufactured and supplied the poi son gas which was used to kill millions of women and children in the Nazi ovens of Auschwitz et al (51).
Prior to and during WWII, the Bush family and associates, were also in business with IG Farben (52).
Those who unleashed the anthrax terror on American citizens is unknown, due to a massive cover-up orchestrated by the Bush administration. Nevertheless, as summed up by Dr. Leonard Horowitz, author of Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism and Toxic Warfare, companies like Bayer have a history of sponsoring terrorist campaigns for profit. Referring to Bayer and related pharmaceutical companies as “white collar terrorists,” Dr. Horowitz notes, “Bayer maintains enough skeletons in its corporate closet to fill a holocaust museum.”
Many pharmaceutical companies associated with the Bush gang and the U.S. government, have also been in the business of trying to create new diseases and artificial pathogens. If pharmaceutical firms create and then spread diseases and epidemics, and if they also own the “cure” then they and their partners can get very rich—like a part-time fire fighter who sets fires because he gets paid whenever he is hired to put out a fire.
Likewise, pharmaceutical firms would stand to make incredible sums of money if the government provides funds and tax breaks for conducting research on diseases that have no cure—which in turn may act as an inducement to create incurable diseases, or dis eases that only they can cure.
The CIA and the U.S. military have been seeking to create incurable diseases for the last 50 years (29,53). The reasons are multi-fold but include genocide and theft. For example, if those who own desirable land or property become sickened and die, then their land and goods can be seized by those who unleashed the disease.
Likewise, if “inferior” and “subhuman” races can be killed wholesale through disease, then it is not necessary to round them up, Hitler-style, and transport them long distances to death camps.
And let us recall: Bayer was part of IG Farben. Rockefeller and the Bush family were in business with IG Farben and Hitler’s Nazis.
“I do not see why any insolence of caste should prevent the gifted class, when they had the power, from treating their compatriots with all kindness, so long as they maintained celibacy. But if these continued to procreate children inferior in moral, intellectual and physical qualities, it is easy to believe the time may come when such persons would be considered as enemies to the State, and to have forfeited all claims to kindness” Sir Francis Galton, 1873.
During the late 1800s, and throughout the 20th century, certain members of the American and English aristocracy including the Rockefellers, the Harrimans, and the Bush family, subscribed to and supported the “eugenics movement” as preached by Sir Francis Galton, and later as practiced by Hitler (52,54,55,56,57,58).
Eugenics is a racist ideology: The superior classes should be encouraged to breed and to improve the race, whereas inferior species of human, “useless eaters” should be sterilized and destroyed as their existence and their consumption of resources, threatens the members of the racial elites.
Prescott Bush was a partner with the Harrimans (52) and in 1910, the Harrimans funded the Eugenics Record Office at Cold Springs Harbor (55), which specializes in the study of genetics and later contributed to the Human Genome Project to map DNA. The Human Genome Project is derived from the eugenics movement. Indeed, the Eugenics Records Office at Cold Springs Harbor is the birthplace of the American eugenics movement (59).
Early in the last century the Eugenics Record Office was used to promote forced sterilization laws. Due in large part to these ef forts, by 1917 fifteen U.S. states had adopted eugenics laws to sterilize epileptics, the mentally ill, and “criminals” (59,60). Those who would be sterilized included boys and girls who had run away from home, as well as impoverish young women who had children out of wedlock.
It is estimated that anywhere from 60,000 to over 100,000 Americans were subsequently sterilized (60,61).
One young woman, Carrie Buck, a 17 year-old unmarried mother who had been raped and then sterilized in Virginia, filed suit against the state, taking the case to the Supreme Court, which proceeded to rule against her in 1927 (59,60,61). Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes, wrote the majority opinion: “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.”
These views were also adopted by Adolf Hitler and the Na zis who preached that Jews, Gypsies, Negroes, Russians, Slavs, and other non-Aryan races, were “subhuman” and should be exterminated (62). Likewise, Hitler believed that Germans who were retarded, disabled, or suffering from epilepsy and other physical or mental disorders should be liquidated so as to prevent them from breeding.
“Those who are physically and mentally unhealthy and unworthy must not perpetuate their suffering in the body of their children. The prevention of the faculty and opportunity to procreate on the part of the physically degenerate and mentally sick, over a period of only 600 years, would … free humanity from an immeasurable misfortune.” Adolf Hitler
Hitler and his SS, as is well known, murdered tens of mil lions of people who they considered to be “subhumans” including Germans.
This Nazi extermination program was based on the science of “eugenics,” a neo-Darwinian concept in which the State weeds out the weak, in favor of the strong; i.e. the sterilization and/or execution of mental patients, the insane, the retarded, the feeble minded, criminals, and physically disabled including those who are blind or deaf (59,60,61). The goal of eugenics is the purification and betterment of the race by preventing the breeding of inferior races and unfit individuals.
Prescott Bush and his son, George H.W. Bush were enthusiastic supporters of “eugenics,” the weeding out of inferior humans. Before G.H.W. Bush became president, he frequently made remarks about the “down-breeding… of America” and sponsored hearings, such as one that took place in August 5, 1969, on the threat posed by black babies (62).
“Famine in India, unwanted babies in the United States, poverty that seemed to form an unbreakable chain for millions of people—how should we tackle these problems? It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s will be to curb the world’s fertility.” George H. W. Bush.
But it was not the curbing of fertility, but killing of inferior men and women, that was embraced by the Bush clan. Before and after he became president of the U.S. George jr., laughed and made jokes about executing the retarded, the abused, those with severe learning disorders, and men with histories of alcoholism and drug abuse—men just like George Bush. “Those people make me sick,” he said. “We killed everyone of them when I was governor” including those who “were abused as kids, or were under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or they’re retarded or dyslexic, stuff like that. My philosophy was not to discriminate. We killed everyone
of them when I was governor.” —George W. Bush, 11/28/2001.
Companies directed or associated with Prescott Bush, also contributed to the Nazi eugenics programs (54,63). For example, Emil Helfferich, the chairman of Bush company, Hamburg Amerika, frequently wrote out checks to Heinrich Himmler (pay able on a special Standard Oil account). According to U.S. intelligence documents reviewed by author Anthony Sutton, Helfferich was still making these payments to the S.S. in 1944 —the same S.S. which was rounding up, enslaving, and supervising the mass murder of “subhumans” (Russians, Jews, Gypsies, Poles, etc.,), at IG Farben’s death camps (51,61)—the same IG Farben that was in business with Bush and Rockefeller.
“Using biological weapons under the cover of an endemic or natural disease occurrence provides an attacker the potential for plausible denial.” “Twenty-First Century Germ Warfare” by USAF Lieutenant Colonel Robert P. Kadlek
The principle behind eugenics (“good genes”), is that only those who are fit and possess superior traits and intellectual abilities, and those who are of “good birth” and “well born” (i.e. aristocrats) deserve to live and to breed. Inferior races, and those who are intellectually and physically disabled should be weeded out of the breeding pool.
Prescott and George H.W. Bush, the Rockefellers and Harrimans, as blue-blooded members of America’s aristocracy, were thus of “good birth” and “well born” and this was consistent with their being enthusiastic supporters of eugenics, with George Bush later pushing for the sterilization of inferior races (62).
The Rockefellers, Harrimans, the Nazis, and later, the CIA, actively funded research into eugenics and “ethnic” biological weapons. The search for designer diseases or other biological or chemical weapons, which when released, would target and selectively sicken and kill the women, children, and men of specific ethnic groups, was of high priority (63).
Related to this was research on biological or chemical com pounds which could induce illnesses which were untreatable. Of particular interest was artificial diseases which would attack and destroy the body’s immune system.
This research continued after World War II and after over a thousand Nazi scientists were imported by the Dulles gang into the United States. Specifically, the CIA and the U.S. military sought to develop an “ethnic weapon” which would selectively target and eliminate specific ethnic groups (34,63). In order to destroy an eth nic group, their signature DNA must be targeted, as well as their immune system. And, of equal importance, the resulting disease must be incurable.
It is the desire to develop an ethnic weapons that specifically targets the genetic makeup of specific racial groups, which explains in part why the U.S. government has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the Human Genome Project.
By the late 1960s, the CIA, and scientists at work at the Spe cial Operations Division, High Security laboratory at Fort Detrick began to make significant progress in the development of a disease that attacks the immune system. In 1969, Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requested and received $10 million in funding from the U.S. Congress to develop a synthetic biological agent to which no natural immunity exists (64,65).
In his report to Congress (64,65), MacMahan states: “There are two things about the biological agent field I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technological surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly and eminent biologists believe that within a period of 5 to 10 years it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired. Within the next 5 to 10 years, it would probably be possible to make a new infective microorganism which could differ in certain important aspects from any known disease causing organisms. Most important of these is that it might be refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon when we de pend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease” (64,65).
The purpose of this research, was to create designer diseases that could “depopulate” huge land masses and eliminate entire populations from the breeding pool, and to murder, through disease, hundreds of millions of men, women, and children of a specific race.
“Population growth…[is] the gravest issue that the world faces over the years ahead…. A world of 10 billion… is not a world that any of us would want to live in. Is such a world inevitable? There are two possible ways by which a world of 10 billion people can be averted. Either the current birth rates must come down more quickly or the current death rates must go up. There is no other way.” — Robert McNamara, (former Secretary of Defense), President, World Bank, 10/2/1970.
In 1970, funding was approved under H.R. 15090 (65), and the U.S. immediately began to intensify efforts to develop “ethnic weapons” (63). The project, under the supervision of the CIA, was carried out by allied research laboratories at universities and private companies, as well as the Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, the army’s top secret biological weapons facility. Within the CIA, the “ethnic weapons project” was also part of a secret program known as MKNAOMI that was also being carried out in conjunction with “The Special Virus Cancer Program,” funded by NIH (66) as specified in H.R.15090 (65).
Although ostensibly, some of this research was conducted by the NIH in order to discover treatments for cancer, the key and operative word is “Virus” that is a “Special Virus” that would at tack the immune system.
Also, it is important to emphasize that through NIH, as well as the CIA, other research facilities were also involved in creating these biological weapons including Yale—ground zero for the secret order of the Brotherhood of Death, i.e. Skull and Bones which includes George Bush, Percy Rockefeller, and the Harrimans as members (68). And then there is Merk pharmaceuticals, which had been acting in concert with the CIA since the 1940s (69).
A number of promising candidates for creating and synthesizing this artificial virus had been identified in the early 1950s. These included the human TCell Leukemia Virus (HTLV1) which is highly infectious but not deadly; SV40, which is related to HIV and is deadly to nonhuman primates, but does not attack humans; and VISNA, a deadly viral disease that attacks sheep, but is not infectious to humans. Each of these and other viral organisms were isolated by the virus section of Fort Detrick’s Center for Biological Warfare Research, and allied research facilities funded by the CIA, the Rockefeller Foundation, and NIH.
Given that the focus of this research was to create a highly pathological virus that would attack and destroy the immune sys tem, we are thus entitled to ask: Did the CIA create a Human Immunodeficiency Virus that is resistant to treatment? And, if so, has that virus been released on human populations?
Jakob Segal, a Professor of Biology at Humboldt University in Germany believes he knows the answer to that question (68), and the answer is: HIV/AIDS. According to Segal, HIV/AIDS was manufactured at Fort Detrick, Maryland, and this was accom plished by splicing together the viral genomes of VISNA and HTLV 1, as both are nearly identical to the HIV genome.
Jakob Segal argues that structural analysis using genome mapping proves that HIV is more similar to VISNA than to any other retrovirus, differing by only 3%. He also notes that this differing 3% matches exactly part of the HTLVI genome.
Segal also argues that HIV was created between late 1977 and the spring of 1978.
Coincidentally, in 1978, the Centers for Disease Control began running ads requesting the participation of promiscuous homosexual men to take part in an “Experimental Hepatitis B vac cine trials.” The first experiments conducted by the CDC began in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, that same year. In 1981 the first cases of AIDS were confirmed in homosexual men in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, triggering speculation that AIDS may have been introduced via the Hepatitis B vaccine.
There is also evidence indicating that other purposeful infections had taken place years before, perhaps with a slower acting variant of what attacked the Gay community.
For example, there is evidence that the first known case of AIDS developed in the 1950s. A British sailor developed AIDs like symptoms in 1958, and died in 1959 (69).
There is also evidence that AIDS was artificially created in 1957, when Hilary Koprowski, in creating an experimental polio vaccine, used monkey kidney tissue infected with an AIDs related virus, SV40, and then supervised the injection of this contaminated vaccine into hundreds of thousands of African Negroes (70). As noted, SV40 was one of several promising viral organisms that had been isolated by the virus section of Fort Detrick’s Center for Bio logical Warfare Research, and allied research facilities funded by the CIA, the Rockefeller Foundation, and NIH. It was believed that SV40 could be transformed into a virus that might attack and destroy the human immune system.
Although Dr. Koprowski admits to the polio injections, he disputes the claim that he created the AIDs virus (71). Nevertheless, there is considerable evidence to indicate that ground zero for the initial onset of the AIDs epidemic is in Central Africa, the same regions in which an experimental oral polio vaccine had been ad ministered to over 300,000 Africans in 1957 through 1960 by Dr. Koprowski (70). On the other hand, Dr. Koprowski and Stanley A. Plotkin argue that “no chimpanzee cells were ever used by us to make OPV” live oral polio vaccine and further argue that the demographics of the spread of the disease in Central Africa could be explained by other factors unrelated to their vaccination procedures (71,72). It is noteworthy that their carefully worded denial emphasizes that “no chimpanzee cells” were used, whereas there is no denial that they used monkey cells, which is what they were accused of. Chimps are not monkeys. They are apes.
Hilary Koprowski has an interesting history (73). He was born a Jew and studied medicine in Poland. Even after the Nazis overran Poland in 1939, he was allowed to continue his studies and he received a medical degree. He then left Poland for Italy, an ally of Nazi Germany (73). In 1940, we are told, he left Italy for Brazil, a country (along with Argentina) that was a favorite for Nazi émigrés both be fore and after the war—including the infamous Nazi doctor, Joseph Mengele (20).
Mengele, it should be pointed out, was associated with the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Eugenics and Human Heredity (20), which was funded in part, by the Rockefeller Foundation (56,57,74). Mengele also performed his ghastly research on concentration camp prisoners, at Auschwitz, where he was medical director. Auschwitz, in turn, was run by IG Farben (51), a company linked to Bush, Harriman (52), and CIA director Allen Dulles (75) and which had partnered with Rockefeller’s Standard Oil (51,76). In fact, the partnership between IG. Farben (and other Nazi companies) was maintained with Rockefeller, Bush, Harriman, and Dulles, even after Nazi Germany invaded Poland (where these individuals also had business interests) and after Nazi Germany declared war on the United States.
Prior to and during the 1940s, the Rockefeller Foundation was a prime sponsor of eugenics movements around the world, including in Nazi Germany. The Rockefeller Foundation provided funds to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry and the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Eugenics and Human Heredity—the same institute which funded Mengele. After the war, Mengele, with US assistance, slipped away to South America and then to Brazil—which is also were Dr. Koprowski decided to live and work soon after he left Poland and Italy.
While in Brazil, Dr. Koprowski was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation—the same Rockefeller Foundation which was linked to IG Farben, and the same Rockefeller foundations that was funding and promoting eugenics and the depopulation movement in Africa, the United States, Britain, and South America.
Because of the bad name given to the field of “eugenics” by Adolf Hitler, “The Eugenics Society” later changed its name to the Society for the Study of Social Biology. An offshoot of the Eugenics movement, was “Planned Parenthood,” founded by Margaret Sanger, a member of both the American Eugenics Society and the English Eugenics Society.
According to Margaret Sanger: “Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly … Funds that should be used to raise the standard of our civilization are diverted to maintenance of those who should never have been born.”
In 1917, Sanger founded and became editor of The Birth Con trol Review, the first scientific journal devoted to the subject of birth control. In 1925 she opened the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau in New York to dispense contraceptives. In 1926 she became president of the American Birth Control League, which became Planned Parenthood.
When Prescott Bush ran for the Senate, in 1950, he was publicly exposed for being an eugenics activist and a member of the fledgling Planned Parenthood movement —a revelation that his son, George H.W. Bush, believed cost his dad, the election.
In his foreword to a population control manual, George Bush wrote about that 1950 election: “My own first awareness of birth control as a public policy issue came with a jolt in 1950 when my father was running for United States Senate in Connecticut. Drew Pearson, on the Sunday before Election day, revealed that my father was involved with Planned Parenthood…. Many political observers felt a sufficient number of voters were swayed by his alleged contacts with the birth controllers to cost him the election.”
Bush, Harriman, Dulles, and Rockefeller, had all been in business with the Nazis, and all supported eugenics, population control, and the sterilization and eradication of inferior people.
Dr. Koprowski’s work in Brazil, we are told, “was supported jointly by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ministry of Education of Brazil” (71). Koprowski’s specialty at that time was “viruses… yellow fever and neuro-tropic viruses” (71).
The Rockefellers, the Harrimans, the Prescott and George H.W. Bush family, and the Dulles brothers are all advocates of population control, birth control, and eugenics. And a special concern of all were the excessive breeding of Black people.
Dr. Koprowski, who was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, has been accused of creating the HIV virus, and as being responsible for injecting over 300,000 Africans with a polio HIV pudding.
Black people, for reasons that have not been made clear, are more prone to developing AIDs/HIV than other racial groups, and globally, the majority of those infected with AIDs (70%) live in sub Saharan Africa. In parts of Africa (e.g. Zambia), over 30% of all adults are infected (77). Anywhere from 4 million to 20 million Africans are estimated to have already died from this disease and anywhere from 30 million to 75 million are infected (77).
Due to the fact that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, and because of the misuse of drugs which do not cure the disease but instead pro long the life of those infected —thus enabling them to infect an in credible number of people over a long time period —there is thus a likelihood that the African Negro will be nearly extinct by the year 2100.
As noted, drug companies can make money treating a disease, especially a disease they helped to create. As the infection spreads, the company becomes richer.
Yale University (the alma matter of the Harrimans, Bushs’, and Rockefeller) and Bristol-Myers holds the patent on one of the leading HIV drugs.Yale researchers discovered the drug, known as d4t or Zerit, in the early 1990s and issued a license to Bristol-Myers to manufacture and market it. In return,Yale receives royalties on the drug, which had sales in 1998 of $328 million. In 1998, those royalties were $40 million.
Merck & Co. is also a patent holder on AIDs drugs, and Merck had been involved in the development of biological and chemical weapons, since the 1940s.
That these companies are profiting and feeding on human mis ery is evident from the outrageous profits. For example, Bristol-Myers sells d4T (Zerit), at a profit of $1,000 per person. An Indian company Cipla, which says it can offer the same medicine at $40 annually per person, has been barred from doing so.
Yes—disease is a profitable business. In 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001, Bristol-Myers Squibb, for example, earned well over $5 billion from the sales of Taxol, a cancer fighter which is used to treat the AIDSrelated Kaposi’s sarcoma.
In addition to “unsafe sex” (78) it is thus noteworthy that a major factor in the HIV epidemic are the HIV/AIDS drugs which are used to treat it. That is, these drugs and their misuse, can result in the mutation of other virulent and more deadly strains of HIV. In a study published in the September, 2001 issue of Nature Medicine, it was reported “that the prevalence of drug resistant HIV is already high and will continue to substantially increase.”
“These drugs are dangerous,” warned Dr. James Kahn, UCSF associate professor of medicine and last author of the study. “General practitioners should not be using them. You really need a skilled HIV specialist to prescribe the medications and closely monitor the patient’s adherence and response to treatment.”
However, we should also wonder if perhaps some of these drugs are in fact designed to make the disease more virulent. As the number of organ systems that become affected increase, then new drugs de signed to treat these AIDs related disorders can be offered, thus wracking up incredible profits for the drug company that in fact helped create the disease.
At present, we are told that there is no “cure” for HIV. And we know that the drugs used to treat the disease, result not only in more virulent forms of the disease, but contribute to the spread of AIDS by prolonging the life of the sufferer which enables them to infect a greater number of people.
Again, given the incredible number of Africans currently infected, i.e. up to 30% of all adults in some areas, and the fact that this epidemic is completely out of control and will only get worse, the logical conclusion is that within another generation, almost all adult Africans will be infected, and that after another generation or two, there will be no more generations: The African Negro will have become extinct.
But then, perhaps that was the goal: Depopulating Africa so that its vast mineral resources can be exploited, and, the reduction of world population in this specific “third world country.”
“Depopulation should be the highest priority of US foreign policy towards the Third World. Reduction of the rate of population growth in these States is a matter of vital US national security.” Henry Kissinger (79), April, 1974.
Arab and north African states are also considered part of the
“Third World.” In January of 1999, nine Libyan citizens, six Bulgarians, and one Palestinian were arrested in connection with the alleged purposeful infection of 393 Libyan children with HIV (80).
“Who charged them with this odious task?” Libyan leader Gadhafi asked at an AIDS conference in Nigeria in April of 1999. “Some said it was the CIA. Others said it was Mossad [the Israeli intelligence service]. They carried out an experiment on these children.”
The Libyan outbreak began following a WHO (World Health Organization) mission to inoculate children in 1998. According to the WHO, 80,000 to 160,000 HIV infections occur annually through unsafe injections, mostly in underdeveloped nations.
“IG Farben was Hitler and Hitler was IG Farben.—Senator Homer T. Bone, Senate Committee on Military Affairs, 6/4/1943.
If IG Farben was Hitler, then what was the SS?
Both IG Farben and the SS, have been described as a “state within a state” (51,61). However, if “Farben was Hitler” that would mean that the SS was subservient to as well as an extension of Farben, and that together they formed a state within a state, a state which had one mission: World Conquest and the Creation of a New World Order—a world of slaves dominated and controlled by the captains of business and industry.
War is good for business, and so too is conquest, the theft of resources and property, and the employment of slave labor.
For the backers of Hitler, war was good business, and people like Bush, Harriman, and the Rockefellers joined with Nazi businessmen in supporting Hitler because they wanted part of the spoils. “Let it be remembered that the Nazi war menace took shape slowly over a period of years. It took various forms of diplomatic, economic and military pressure. Yet all the while, one master combine, IG Farben, the German chemical trust, representative of the tight inner circle of German monopoly, operated behind the scenes to give a constant drive and purpose to the Nazi juggernaut” (51). “The German war monger in a real sense, was not so much
Adolf Hitler’s brown-shirted, swaggering storm trooper, as it was the soberly-clad superficially honorable type Hjalmar Schacht or
Hermann Schmitz, president of IG Farben. It was the particular function of the leaders of IG Farben and a handful of other German corporations to start preparations for another world war, just as soon as World War I was over. It was they who assured Hitler’s victory in Germany in 1933. And it was they who set the pace in the looting of Europe during those first years of the war while the Wehrmacht was rolling over conquered countries” Senator Claude Pepper (51).
Prior to and during WWII, IG Farben was, in fact, the larg est chemical manufacturing enterprise in the world (51). IG Farben was also a cartel, a super-giant, transnational chemical enterprise that had been fashioned in 1925, when organizing genius Hermann Schmitz merged together the six largest German chemical companies — Bayer, Hoechst, Badische Anilin, WeilerterMeer, GriesheimElektron, and Agfa (51). Together these six firms be came IG Farben: the “Internationale Gesellschaft Farbenindustrie A.G.”
Hermann Schmitz would not have been able to accomplish this remarkable enterprise without considerable financial help from bankers and Wall Street. His helpers included Paul Warburg, founder of the Federal Reserve System in the United States and a member of the board of directors for American I. G., Farben’s wholly owned
U.S. subsidiary (82).
By 1939 IG Farben had gobbled up, or exerted managerial influence on 380 German firms and over 500 foreign firms including Standard Oil of New Jersey, DuPont, Alcoa, and Dow Chemi cal which were linked to Farben through cartel agreements (51,81,82). Rockefeller’s Standard Oil was in a partnership with Farben—Farben president Hermann Schmitz, owning as much stock in Standard Oil of New Jersey as did the Rockefellers (81).
The Farben tentacles reached everywhere. The Farben em the German war machine:
“In 1939, out of 43 major products manufactured by IG., 28 were of ‘primary concern’ to the German armed forces. Farben’s ultimate control of the German war economy, acquired during the 1920s and 1930s with Wall Street assistance, can best be assessed by examining the percentage of German war material output produced by Farben plants in 1945. Farben at that time produced 100% of German synthetic rubber, 95% of German poison gas (including all the Zyklon B gas used in the concentration camps), 90% of German plastics, 88% of German magnesium, 84% of German explosives, 70% of German gunpowder, 46% of German high octane (aviation) gasoline, and 33% of German synthetic gasoline” (82).
“Without I. G.’s immense productive facilities, its intense research, and vast international affiliations, Germany’s prosecution of the war would have been unthinkable and impossible; Farben not only directed its energies toward arming Germany, but concentrated on weakening her intended victims, and this double-barreled attempt to expand the German industrial potential for war and to restrict that of the rest of the world was not conceived and executed ‘in the normal course of business.’ The proof is overwhelming that I. G. Farben officials had full prior knowledge of Germany’s plan for world conquest and of each specific aggressive act later undertaken” (83).
Those with prior knowledge would have included Farben partners and associates: Bush, Harriman, Dulles, and the Rockefellers.
Indeed, they not only had full knowledge, but IG Farben served as spymaster for Hitler and Nazi Germany and with the assistance of Bush, Harriman, and other Wall Street elitists, imported Nazi propaganda to the U.S., while simultaneously stealing industrial and war-related secrets from U.S. companies which were then exported back to Nazi Germany (84).
IG Farben was also an active participant in Germany’s eugenics extermination programs which were designed to depopulate Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. IG Farben designed the slave labor extermination camps and invented, produced, and distributed Zyklon B gas (Prussic acid), which was used to murder millions of people after they had been forced into the gas ovens specially created and designed by IG Farben (51).
At the close of World War II, IG Farben was to have been dismantled by the victorious allies (85): “Smash IG Farben Empire, Eisenhower Advises Allies.” Instead, IG Farben was broken apart into four big German corporations: Bayer A.G., Agfa, BASF, and Hoechst (which later created Baxter), whereas its intelligence network became part of the OSS/CIA (21,22,86). Hermann Schmitz, after spending a few years in “detention” for crimes such as “slavery” became the new president of Bayer.
Prior to and during the war, Bayer, one of the largest chemical companies in the world, was part of IG Farben. Bayer sold the Zyklon B that had been produced by IG Farben Leverkusen, and licensed its distribution through Degesch. Bayer sold enough gas to kill over 200 million humans (51,82). Indeed, weapons created by IG Farben killed thousands of Americans, and millions of men, women, and children were put to death at IG Farben slave camps (51,82). Typically, those immediately marked for death, were the weak, the old, and the infirm—that is, those with physical and medical problems (87).
Forty years later, Bayer would be accused of purposefully infecting Americans with AIDs. Those targeted by Bayer were men, women, and children with a major medical problem. Specifically, during the early 1980s, Bayer A.G., (along with Baxter and Rhone Poulenc) infected more than 10,000 hemophiliacs with the AIDS virus, creating, what has been called “The worst medically induced tragedy in the history of the U.S.” Because of their role in selling HIVtainted blood clotting products, Bayer and Baxter were forced to settle a class action lawsuit by paying $100,000 per claimant (87).
One of the best predictors of the future, is the past, and in the past, Bayer was part of IG Farben, and Bayer supplied the gas which was used to kill millions of “subhumans.” In our opinion, Bayer is still part of IG Farben—but under another name: Bayer. And Bayer is in business with the Bush family.
“It seems to me that there is a tendency today to forget who were our enemies to forget the causes of the last war, and, there fore, the potential causes of the next war. The case of IG Farben cannot yet be laid away in the historian’s file. IG Farben and the kind of cartel practice of which it was the most dynamic specimen are still very much with us. They still constitute a threat to the peace of [the] world. I maintain that IG Farbenism is an enemy and will remain one” Senator Claude Pepper (51).
Bayer was reorganized in 1951 under the direction of John J. McCloy, of the Allied High Commission who had close ties to Rockefeller oil interests, and who later sat with Dulles on the Warren Commission investigation into the assassination of Kennedy.
When Bayer was formed, Hermann Schmitz, the former presi dent of IG Farben (and a board member at Deutsche Bank) became president of Bayer A.G., whereas hundreds of Nazi scientists and doctors who had worked for IG Farben were given jobs with Bayer, the CIA, the Department of Defense, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Republican Party, and in American and foreign pharmaceutical companies that had been in cartel relationships with IG Farben prior to and during the second world war (18,21,24 27,30,33,51,76,81,86).
The pharmaceutical industry, of which Bayer, Merck, Baxter, Hoechst, and others are part, is an industry which feeds and profits on human misery. The pharmaceutical industry requires people to become ill, in order to make a profit. Business growth is dependent on the development of new disabling diseases which proliferate, or the resurgence of old diseases which again rage out of control. It is in the best interests of the pharmaceutical industry, for people to get sick, and to stay sick. It is not in the best interests of the phar maceutical industry, for people to get well.
As is well known, anywhere from 90% to 98% of all phar maceutical drugs neither prevent diseases nor cure them (88). Many of these drugs also cause deleterious side-effects, including diarrhea, stomach cramps, dizziness, sexual dysfunction, blurry vision, seizures, brain damage, heart damage, and even death. As summed up by the Journal of the American Medical Association, pharmaceutical drugs and their side effects, are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and other industrialized countries (88).
Many of these same companies have been the business of creating death since the 1930s. Bayer and Hoechst (as part of IG Farben) ran the concentration/slave labor and extermination camps (20,21,22,23,51). Representatives from these companies waited at the train depot as human cargo rolled in, selecting who was fit for slave labor, who was fit to become a human guinea pig, and who should be disposed of in the gas chambers.
Those who were selected to become human guinea pigs underwent incredible horrors, and were often purposefully infected with terrible diseases. Bayer A.G., both before and after the war, was particularly active in conducting research into biological war fare, and the development of designer diseases, and genetically modified viral and bacterial agents, such as anthrax and smallpox, that have no cure. Bayer experimented on human slaves during the 1940s.
We suspect that Bayer, and other pharmaceutical compa nies—particularly those linked to Bush and associates, are still purposefully infecting people.
Bayer does not act in isolation. Just as Bayer/Hoechst (IG Farben) was partnering with American businesses and business men, including the Rockefellers, the Harrimans, and the Bush family before and during the war, they would stay in business together after the war (50,52). Indeed, it is this enduring relationship with America’s political elite, which explains why the U.S. government has purchased massive quantities of drugs from Bayer AG and Hoechst, even though it is not known if these drugs are effective or how dangerous they might be.
For example, in July 2000, Bayer’s anti-anthrax drug, Cipro, received an unprecedented sole endorsement by the Federal Drug Administration, despite Cipro’s largely untested status—one animal study for anthrax treatment in 1993. In October of 2001, the U.S. government agreed to pay Bayer, $70.00 per dose, even though Cipro is sold in other countries for less than $20.00 a dose. The Washington Times, referred to the sale as “ripoff” (90).
Other Farben companies are also profiting.
On October 25, 2001, Tommy Thompson, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, asked Congress for $500 million to purchase enough of Acambis’s smallpox vaccine “so every American will be assured there is a dose with his or her name on it if it is needed.” However, the rules governing the test ing of this smallpox vaccine produced by Acambis (previously OraVax) in partnership with Baxter (Hoechst) and Aventis (Rhone Poulenc) were relaxed so that this incredible sale could go through for a drug that hardly anyone will use, but which will be stockpiled just in case! Indeed, according to a press release by Acambis, in “November 2001, we were awarded a major contract by the US Government to provide 155 million doses of smallpox vaccine for the purposes of countering the threat of bio-terrorism. This followed the award of an initial contract in September 2000 which had covered the development of a new smallpox vaccine and the production and maintenance over 20 years of a 40 million dose stockpile. As a result, we are manufacturing 209 million doses of smallpox vaccine for the US Government.” The entire contract is worth $428 million dollars.
That the U.S. government would purchase drugs that it may not need, and which may not only be ineffective, but dangerous, is not without precedent. During the Gulf War, the military injected soldiers with dangerous experimental drugs without their consent and without their knowledge, and then showed a callous disregard for their health.
In testimony before the 1994 Senate Banking Committee headed by Senators Donald Riegle Jr., and Alfonse M. D’Amato (5/25/94), it was revealed that between 1985 and 1989, the Reagan Bush administration authorized at least 72 separate shipments, of incredibly virulent biological and chemical agents to Iraq. These included a nerve gas rated a million times more lethal than Sarin, and substances which could destroy crops, and sicken and kill men, women, and children and animals by destroying the brain, liver, spleen, heart, lungs, and spinal column. Diseases and agents such as pneumonia virus, salmonella, staphylcoccus, West Nile Virus,
E. coli, anthrax, botulism, genetically modified tuberculosis and influenza, and a substance referred to as “histoplasma capsulatum” were provided to Iraq with the full knowledge that Iraq would use these weapons on its enemies. The Commerce Department under the first Bush administration also authorized eight shipments of cultures that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classified as agents for “biological warfare.”
In 1988, the Bush administration also shipped 19 containers of anthrax bacteria to Iraq. These weaponized anthrax had been created by the American Type Culture Collection company, located near Fort Detrick, MD, the site of the US Army’s high security germ warfare labs.
The Bush administration was not alone. British firms also transferred numerous deadly biological and chemical agents to the Iraqi military. Some of these shipments were received in the months before the gulf war!
The purpose of these shipments was to provide Saddam Hussein with chemical and biological weapons which could be used to murder hundreds of thousands if not millions of men, women, and children. Indeed, as detailed in the previous chapter, as part of the agreement regarding these shipments, CIA and U.S. scientists were allowed to collect data on the effects of these substances, some of which were unleashed upon Kurdish tribes in the north of Iraq.
The CIA and Bush administration also armed Iraq with biological and chemical weapons, as a pretext for giving U.S. enlisted personnel experimental drugs and for assessing how U.S. troops would respond to these same weapons.
Dick Cheney served as Secretary of Defense in the first Bush administration and during the Persian Gulf war with Iraq. Cheney, with his ties to the petrol-chemical industry, was a strong advocate of vaccinating the troops, many of whom were given experimental drugs with incredibly harmful side-effects (10).
In addition, Cheney approved a U.S. Army plan to explode an Iraqi chemical weapons depot at Kamashiya, despite the fact that 20,000 U.S. servicemen and women would be exposed to VX and sarin nerve agents. This was not just an act of negligence. The CIA and Department of Defense were keenly interested in the short and long term effects of these chemical weapons on U.S. troops.
Over 20,000 US troops were thus purposefully exposed to VX and sarin nerve agents as a result of the U.S. operation at Kamashiya. Over 100,000 were given, without their knowledge, incredibly harmful drugs.
Later, tens of thousands of these men and women developed “Gulf War Syndrome” a disease the Army and Dick Cheney’s Pentagon studied while denying its existence.
According to the 1994 Senate Banking Committee report, there are over “100,000 names on a national registry of gulf veterans who have reported illnesses they believe stem from their tours of duty there. Some of these people, who went over there as young able-bodied Americans, are now desperately ill,” and many “have died.”
As summed up by the United States Senate’s Committee on Veterans’Affairs (10): the “DOD incorrectly claims that since their goal was treatment, the use of investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War was not research. DOD used investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War in ways that were not effective. DOD did not know whether pyridostigmine bromide would be safe for use by U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf War. When U.S. troops were sent to the Persian Gulf in 1994, DOD still did not have proof that pyridostigmine bromide was safe for use as an antidote enhancer. Pyridostigmine may be more dangerous in combination with pesticides and other exposures. The safety of the botulism vaccine was not established prior to the Persian Gulf War. Records of anthrax vaccinations are not suitable to evaluate safety. DOD and DVA have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical followup to those who participate in military research or are ordered to take investigational drugs. For at least 50 years, DOD has intentionally exposed military personnel to potentially dangerous substances, often in secret. DOD has repeatedly failed to comply with required ethical standards when using human subjects in military research during war or threat of war. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific studies that provide information about the reproductive problems experienced by veterans who were intentionally exposed to potentially dangerous substances. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific studies that pro vide timely information for compensation decisions regarding military personnel who were harmed by various exposures. Participation in military research is rarely included in military medical records, making it impossible to support a veteran’s claim for service-connected disabilities from military research. DOD has demonstrated a pattern of misrepresenting the danger of various military exposures that continues today.”
When in the clutches of the DOD (Department of Defense) United States citizens are routinely used as human guinea pigs, or simply as an excuse to justify the purchase of dangerous or worth less drugs from a drug supplier who is connected to the DOD or a current or past member of both Bush administrations.
For example, despite the scathing 1994 rebuke from Con gress, in 1997 the Department of Defense ordered that all enlisted men and women would receive anti-anthrax injections using an experimental anthrax vaccine that would be sold by BioPort. BioPort is directly linked to Bayer A.G., the Saudis (including Faud El Hibri), the Bush family, the bin Ladens, and to Admiral William Crowe Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Ronald Reagan and George Bush (92). Admiral Crowe owns 13% of BioPort Corporation and sits on the Board of Directors.
The purpose of the anti-anthrax injections? To make money. Again, U.S. citizens in the armed services were forced to become human guinea pigs. If they refused the shots, if they refused to allow experimental drugs (and who knows what else)to be injected into their bodies, they would be court-martialed and imprisoned.
The idea behind this forced program had been in the works during the first Bush presidency. However, although he lost the election, it went forward with the blessing of Bill Clinton, his Defense Secretary William Cohen, and at the urgings of Admiral William Crowe (retired). Indeed, soon after Crowe and the Bush connected Carlyle Group (92) made major investments in “BioPort” the company received a multi-million dollar contract to produce an “anthrax vaccine.”
BioPort, of Lansing, Michigan, is the only corporation in the United States with a license to make anthrax vaccine. It acquired that license when it purchased Michigan Biologic Products Institute, from the State of Michigan in 1998. Michigan Biologic Products Institute had been selling the vaccine to the U.S. Department of defense.
BioPort has been plagued by contamination problems and has been repeatedly shut down by the Food and Drug Administration for “unsanitary conditions” (93,94). On 8/30/2000 and 9/1/2000 BioPort was forced to recall three products, including its anthrax vaccine because the wrong expiration date was put on labels. Moreover, its anthrax vaccine was linked to the death of one its own workers (93). In July of 2000, Richard Dunn died after receiving 11 injections. A coverup ensued, and his death was falsely labeled as due to a heart condition. Later, the truth emerged fol lowing an independent autopsy.
Because BioPort has repeatedly failed Food and Drug Ad ministration inspections, it was prohibited from shipping any vaccine (94).
Nevertheless, the Department of Defense agreed to an exclusive contract making BioPort its sole producer of the untested drug and has paid out more than $130 million to the company (94). Between 1998 and 2001, over 487,000 military personnel were forced to receive 1.9 million doses of the vaccine. About 400 military personnel, including doctors, refused.
BioPort maintains a stockpile of anthrax. Company officials refer to the stockpile as “a small amount of live anthrax” just enough to make the vaccine on site. And they assure us that the anthrax is safe. “There is no special threat posed by the presence of our facil ity here,” said Robert Myers, BioPort’s executive vice president. “The anthrax we have is not in a weaponized form.”
BioPort, however, along with Bayer, Battelle, and others, per forms biological warfare research and maintains connections with American intelligence and defense officials. BioPort has allegedly worked on bio-warfare programs at Fort Detrick and the Army Dugway Proving Ground in the Utah desert which in turn produced weapons-grade anthrax.
The purpose of a “weapons-grade anthrax” is to kill and to instill terror.
In September and October of 2001, the citizens of the United States of America were subjected to a series of biological terrorist attacks involving the release of “weapon’s grade anthrax.” The an thrax used in these attacks was subsequently linked to BioPort, Battelle, Fort Detrick, and Dugway (95).
Prior to the post 9/11/2001 anthrax attack on U.S. citizens, Donald Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon was developing and testing a weapon’s grade, biologically engineered anthrax vi rus. Rumsfeld and the White House denied that these tests were violations of existing laws and treaties, claiming that they were purely defensive. Yet, despite their claims, President Bush also re fused to sign a draft agreement strengthening the 1974 convention on biological weapons as it would have required the Bush administration to reveal where and upon whom the U.S. was testing these biological weapons.
Although 140 nations signed the treaty, the Bush administration refused because it was especially concerned that military con tractors, such as the Battelle Memorial Institute, located in West Jefferson, Ohio, might come under international and national scrutiny. The Battelle Memorial Institute has been actively involved in the creation of military grade, genetically altered anthrax.
In the months before 9/11, senior Bush administration officials announced that “this administration will pursue defenses against the full spectrum of biological threats,” and would step up research on both microbes and germ munitions for “protective or defensive purposes.” The Bush administration and CIA was especially keen on developing and testing methods of releasing and dispersing weapon’s grade anthrax in densely populated areas and under different atmospheric conditions.
Anthrax can be severely debilitating, causing fever, chills, fatigue, muscle aches, pneumonia-like symptoms, and, if untreated, death. The CIA and Bush administration were eager to develop a genetically altered anthrax that would be especially virulent.
The next step would be “vulnerability testing,” so as to protect “national security.”
According to U.S. government officials, the research and test ing would be conducted by the Battelle Memorial Institute, in con junction with the CIA which, according to CIA spokesman, Bill Harlow, had already conducted “laboratory or experimental” work. The results of these vulnerability tests, it was believed, could provide vital information useful for protecting “national security.” What Harlow didn’t mention was that the CIA had recruited almost two-dozen Russian scientists with an expertise in anthrax and biological warfare and that the CIA was especially interested in conducting “vulnerability testing” on American cities and the American public.
The desire of the CIA to conduct a biological attack on the American public was justified, government officials believed. For example, what if terrorists released several pounds of anthrax in New York city. If antibiotics were not administered immediately, perhaps as many as 400,000 people would die within just a few days. Anthrax has an 80% mortality rate if untreated. And what of the millions upon millions of Americans who would panic at the prospect of being exposed? They too would seek treatment thus completely taxing and overwhelming heath care officials. Stock piles of antibiotics and vaccines would be depleted within hours. And what of the panic and rioting which might ensue? Civil authorities and the police would be completely unable to cope and would require the assistance of the military to restore order.
The American public had to be exposed, in order to assess these vulnerabilities.
It was recognized, of course, that the American public would not react kindly to being turned into human guinea pigs, and that if such tests were conducted and became public, Bush, like his father, would become a one term president. However, if the American public could be made to believe that a biological attack was the work of Arab terrorists, not only could the CIA obtain the in formation it sought, but the geopolitical ambitions of the Bush administration and its desire to topple Saddam Hussein and the rulers of Afghanistan, could be quickly realized and his reelection, as a wartime leader, guaranteed.
Indeed, the Bush-Cheney doctrine of reprisal had been laid out in 1991, prior to the onset of the Gulf War. President George Bush and Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney had publicly pro claimed that any attack on U.S. forces or U.S. citizens with chemical or biological weapons would be met with “massive retaliation.” It was also realized that the U.S. government could easily prevent anyone from determining who actually carried out a bio logical attack, which meant that anyone could be blamed. It was also understood that by the use of propaganda, and the “Big Lie” repeated over and over again by the corporate controlled mass media, that the public could not only be terrorized, but convinced of the necessity of attacking countries, such as Iraq. By using propaganda and “information warfare” as a psychological weapon the American public could also be prepared to jettison some of their own freedoms, which in turn would further the fascist ambitions of Bush and associates.
The decision was made. By July, 2001, it was already known to the CIA and Bush administration that al-Qaeda were planning to hijack commercial jetliners and crash them into the World Trade Center (see chapters 10 & 11). Of course, there was also the possibility that the terrorists would fail in their mission. And, there was also a possibility that changes in the geopolitical landscape would require the Bush administration to intervene and arrest the 9/11 plotters before they had the opportunity to act.
However, what if “terrorists” also launched a biological at tack on U.S. citizens, with military grade anthrax? If this were to occur, and even if the planned hijacking failed, the CIA would not only be able to conduct yet another “vulnerability test” on the American public, but the Bush administration would be justified in declaring war on all “evil doers;” i.e. the Taliban who were refusing Bush administration demands to allow an oil pipeline to be built on their lands, and Saddam Hussein whose government con trolled the second largest oil reserves in the world.
“The public as well as some in the security community prob ably do not fully appreciate the wide availability of (biological warfare)relevant technology and knowledge. A biological attack by a non-state actor probably would cause fewer casualties than an attack by a state, but the terror that such an attack would cause among the population would still be substantial.” —National Intelligence Council, 1/2/2001.
It was a sunny, September, quintessential Florida afternoon, when the bulky manila envelop arrived in the mail room of the Sun, a weekly tabloid newspaper. It was addressed: “Please For ward to Jennifer Lopez, c/o The Sun” (96).
Managing editor Joe West, examined the envelop, felt along the bulky cylindrical contours, and… threw it into the trash.
“Something told me not to open it,” he said.
Bobby Bender, a news assistant at the Sun, felt no such mis givings. He retrieved it from the garbage and opened it up. It contained a metal cigar tube, an empty can of chewing tobacco, a small carton of detergent, and a handwritten love letter to Jennifer Lopez. The love-struck author was proposing marriage!
There was also a single sheet of paper, decorated with blue and pink clouds. It had been folded into 3 sections and contained a small mound of pinkish powder that partly covered a little gold star of David (96).
Bob Stevens, a news photographer at the Sun, was curious and asked to take a look. Bender carefully handed him the paper, powder and Star of David, and Bob Stevens took it to his desk.
Stevens was nearsighted and held the powder close to his face spilling some of the power on his computer keyboards, and un knowingly inhaling the pinkish dust. Carefully, he retrieved the Star of David, smearing his fingers with little grains of pinkish residue.
Sixteen days later, Bob Stevens was dead.
On October 4, 2001, Secretary of Health and Human Ser vices Tommy Thompson announced that the Stevens’ anthrax in fection, was not an act of terrorism, but “an isolated case.”
On Sunday, October 7, medical tests disclosed that Ernesto Blanco, a mail-room worker at the Sun, had also been exposed to anthrax bacteria. Within days 6 more people came down with the disease (97).
The CDC immediately shipped enough antibiotics to Palm Beach County to treat more than 1,000 people, for 15 days, at a cost of $700 per individual.
Soon, similar cases were turning up in New York and Washington. Two postal workers at a facility that handles mail for the Capitol died after showing symptoms of anthrax, and several oth ers were diagnosed with inhalation anthrax. These were followed by yet additional cases, and in consequence, the Brentwood, New Jersey, mail center and an airmail facility near Baltimore-Washington International Airport, were shut down. In Washington alone, over 10,000 postal workers were urged to pick up Cipro prescriptions (97). In total, over 35,000 people were treated with antibiotics to prevent infection.
The anthrax was being sent through the mail, to outfits such as the New York Post, ABC and CBS news, and to the office of New York Governor George Pataki. Four letters, one sent to the office of Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, one to Senator Patrick Leahy and another to NBC (where an assistant to Tom Brokaw later tested positive for the disease), and the New York Post were postmarked from Trenton, N.J.
Specifically, the one addressed to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, DS.D., and the other to Sen. Patrick Leahy, DVt., carried a return address of “4th Grade Greendale School, Franklin Park, NJ 08852” and were postmarked Trenton, N.J., on Oct. 9, 2001. The letters sent to “NBC TV — Tom Brokaw” and “NY Post” were postmarked in Trenton on Sept. 18, 2001, seven days after the Sept. 11 bombings of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Coincidentally, several of the 9/11 hijackers had lived in New Jersey and were still living there on the day they hijacked the United Airlines flight from Newark and slammed it into a field in rural Pennsylvania. Of course, all were long dead by 9/18/2001. But what of their accomplices?
Later, a child of an ABC News employee would test positive for the skin form of anthrax after visiting ABC’s New York news room on or around Sept. 28, 2001.
A third letter was sent from Malaysia to a Microsoft office in Reno (98). Malaysia had also been a destination where several of the 9/11 hijackers had met together, while being watched, tape re corded, and photographed by the CIA in January of 2000 (99).
Curiously, however, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad began complaining that the U.S. refused to share any information on the anthrax mailings, and did not request any assistance from Mayalsia’s police or intelligence agencies (98). The U.S. was in fact refusing to cooperate. “We’ve not even been told where to proceed,” said acting Kuala Lumpur police chief, Dell Akhbar Khan (98).
Those who were first infected, Bob Stevens and Ernesto Blanco lived within a half hour drive of the residence of 9/11 hi jacker, Muhhamed Atta. And yet another coincidence, the FBI announced that Gloria Irish, the wife of the editor for Sun tabloid, had rented a Delray Beach apartment, unit 1504 at the Delray Racquet Club, to two of the hijackers: Marwan alShehhi and Saeed alGhamdi (100). Al-Shehhi hijacked United Airlines Flight 175, and al-Ghamdi hijacked United Flight 93. In fact, Mohamed Atta as well as several of the other hijackers visited the apartment. Moreover, in June of 2001, just 3 months before the hijackings, Ahmed al-Haznawi sought treatment for a skin lesion that, accord ing to Dr. Christos Tsonas, “was consistent with cutaneous anthrax” (101). According to a memorandum, prepared by experts at the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies, there is a high likelihood “that the hijackers were handling anthrax and were the perpetrators of the anthrax letter attacks” (101).
But of course, that is impossible as they were all dead at least 7 days before the first anthrax had been mailed.
Somebody obviously goofed.
And then the cover up began.
Attorney General John Ashcroft warned that despite the evidence it was “premature at this time to decide whether there is a direct link” to Osama bin Laden or al-Qaeda, but “we should consider this potential.”
John E. Collingwood, an F.B.I. spokesman, said there was no evidence of a connection between the hijackers and the anthrax attacks: “This was fully investigated and widely vetted among multiple agencies several months ago. Exhaustive testing did not support that anthrax was present anywhere the hijackers had been.” Bush administration officials also began announcing that the anthrax which had sickened and killed so many was a “naturally occurring strain” that had not been developed in a laboratory for use as a weapon. Maj. Gen. John Parker of the Army’s testing laboratory at Fort Detrick, said its just a “common variety” of an thrax. He then sent samples to another testing facility, Battelle, to confirm that impression, but without telling anyone that the sample had been secretly irradiated thus destroying their virulence and dispersal qualities.
And then the White House stopped providing any information. George Bush left for China. The new Homeland Security chief, Tom Ridge, had nothing to say on the matter. The CDC quit re sponding to queries.
White House spokesman, Ari Fleischer had only this to say about the silence: “it’s a particularly important job for the federal government — and I speak for the president and for agencies in the government, to some degree — to make certain that the information they have is considered and is accurate before rushing to re port it.”
“There is no federal coordination of this whole effort,” said Mohammed Akhter, executive director of the American Public Health Association. “There is no central authority to tell the public what is going on, what health officials are doing and what the pub lic needs to do.”
What the FBI felt it needed to do was destroy evidence. On October 10 and 11, 2001, when the first anthrax cases were com ing to light, the FBI and the CDC, gave permission to the Iowa State archive to destroy its collection of anthrax samples. The evidence destroyed included spores collected over a period of more than seven decades from a number of facilities and which had been kept in more than 100 vials. Incredibly, the FBI and CDC autho rized the destruction although the collection contained genetic clues valuable to the anthrax inquiry (102,103). Indeed, the Iowa State samples were later directly implicated in the death of the first an thrax victim, as was confirmed by Tom Ridge, the White House director of homeland security, on Oct. 25, two weeks after the destruction.
As summed up by the New York Times (102): “The FBI’s inquiry into the anthrax attacks has stumbled in several key areas and may have missed opportunities to gather valuable evidence.”
The FBI also failed to even visit many of the companies, laboratories and academic institutions with the equipment or capability to make weaponized anthrax. And when they did conduct interviews, the questions asked were usually irrelevant, at least according to several lab directors (102).
Many began to wonder if the FBI missed these opportunities because it was involved in a cover-up. Indeed, the new director of the FBI, Mr. Mueller was known to be a cover-up artist who had destroyed documents and incriminating evidence in the past so as to protect the Bush family and their associates (see chapter 7). In a detailed report by the Federation of American Scientists, it was concluded that “ Under Assistant Attorney General Mueller… the Department sought to impede the investigations of others through a variety of mechanisms, ranging from not making witnesses avail able, to not returning telephone calls, to claiming that every aspect of the case was under investigation in a period when little, if any thing, was being done” (104).
And what would Mueller and the FBI be covering up this time?
According to Dr. Barbara Hatch Rosenberg of the Federation of American Scientists, the FBI has engaged in a cover up because the FBI knows that the anthrax attack was an inside job. Based on a genetic analysis conducted at Northern Arizona Uni versity, the evidence indicates that the anthrax originated from Fort Detrick, BioPort, Dugway or Battelle (95).
Fort Detrick and Dugway are well guarded, and reporters must receive special permission to visit the labs or speak with scientists. As to BioPort, soon after this facility came under suspicion, George W. Bush, via Gov. Engler, using the pretext of “Na tional Security,” ordered the Michigan National Guard to surround and protect the BioPort facility (106).
On October 17, 2001, five days after calling out the National Guard and almost two weeks after Robert Stevens died of pulmonary anthrax at a hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Bush administration unveiled its plans to build up, in a big way, the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile—the drugs, vaccines, chemical antidotes, antitoxins, and other medical supplies that are kept at the ready to respond to large-scale bio-terrorist attacks. The White House asked Congress for more than $1.1 billion in emergency funds to expand the two-year-old program, and some lawmakers were soon talking of increasing that amount to as much as $10 billion. Little wonder that many of the nation’s pharmaceutical companies, aided by their Washington lobbyists, have been angling for seats aboard what one industry critic calls “another gravy train to cash in on some big government contracts” (94).
Of course, those who will cash in, include BioPort, Bayer A.G., and the companies and individuals they have partnered with, such as the Carlyle Group whose investors and board members include George H.W. Bush, former Bush and Reagan-Bush cabinet officials, and, the bin Laden family.
Following the anthrax attacks the Bush administration formed a partnership, without fanfare, which linked the United States Government’s Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Health and Human Services, with the pharmaceutical industry, a joint venture called Homeland Health. “Our Mission: Government, industry and academia are working to solve the many unknowns surrounding bio-terrorism threats. America’s pharmaceutical companies are joining together… with the advice and support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. HomelandHealth.com represents our combined effort to do what ever it takes – for as long as it takes – to win the war against bio-terrorism. The pharmaceutical industry is committed to helping the United States government” (see HomelandHealth.com).
Yes, the pharmaceutical industry is our friend.
Dr. Michael Friedman, former head of the FDA—the same Dr. Friedman who gave the go ahead for the DOD to inject experi mental anthrax vaccine into U.S. soldiers during the Persian Gulf War— is Homeland Health’s Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Friedman is also a senior vice president of the pharmaceutical giant Pharmacia Corporation which is also an integral part of Homeland Health. And sitting on the board of directors of Pharmacia Corporation is Frank C. Carlucci, chairman of the Carlyle Group whose consult ants, investors, and stock holders include George H.W. Bush and the bin Laden family.
And then there is Don Schmitz. As noted earlier in this chap ter, Hermann Schmitz, was president of IG Farben, and later be came president of Bayer. Don Schmitz is Vice President, Associate General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, of the Pharmacia Corpo ration.
The Carlyle Group, in some ways, is reminiscent of IG Farben. The Carlyle Group is a cartel and a self-described “merchant bank.” However its portfolio ranks it as one of the major defense contractors in the country, with holdings not only in major defense industries, but the pharmaceutical industry. The Carlyle Group makes money off human misery, through war, terrorism, and disease.
Mr. Carlucci has an interesting history. In the 1950s he allegedly began working with the CIA—at about the same time as George
H.W. Bush. Initially his cover was the State Department where he performed operations in Central Africa and Brazil. When Nixon came to power, Carlucci was given several sub-cabinet level positions and eventually he became a Deputy Secretary of Defense under Caspar Weinberger who was later convicted of crimes pertaining to the illegal Iran-Contra arms deal. With the resignation of Nixon, whereas George W. Bush became director of the CIA, Carlucci later became deputy CIA director. With the election of Reagan and Bush, in 1980, Carlucci became Secretary of Defense where he worked closely with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral William Crowe— the same Crowe who would become a board member of BioPort, the same BioPort whose investors allegedly include the Carlyle Group and thus Bayer A.G., and the Bush and bin Laden families.
As noted, in July 2000, Bayer’s anti-anthrax drug, Cipro, received an unprecedented sole endorsement by the Federal Drug Administration, despite Cipro’s largely untested status. In October of 2001, after the anthrax attacks, the U.S. government agreed to pay Bayer, almost a dollar a pill, $700 per person for a two months sup ply, even though Cipro is sold in other countries for less than $20.00. The Washington Times, referred to the sale as “ripoff” (90).
As to BioPort, tens of millions of dollars will be pumped into this and other companies, by the U.S. government.
“I think a lot of good has come from [the anthrax attacks]. From a biological or a medical standpoint, [although many] people have died, we’ve put about $6 billion in our budget into defending against bio-terrorism.” David Franz former commander of USAMRIID.
We should recall the evidence linking the anthrax attacks to several of the 9/11 hijackers, i.e. the Malaysia and New Jersey mailings, the link between the Florida tabloid, the Sun, and Atta, alShehhi and alGhamdi, and evidence suggesting that 9/11 hijacker Al Haznawi had developed an anthrax skin lesion. However, despite this intriguing evidence, the FBI and Bush administration were quick to quash any further inquiry, authorized the destruction of evidence, and refused to provide help or assistance to Malaysian authorities.
We should be curious to as to why evidence was destroyed and why these avenues of inquiry became off limits.
Obviously, if some party provided several of the 9/11 terror ists with “weapons grade anthrax” then that same party might be linked in some manner to BioPort, Bayer A.G., or Fort Dietrick. Bayer A.G., for example, is headquartered in Germany, and most experts agree that the 9/11 plot was likely first hatched in Germany— the birthplace of Nazism.
As to BioPort, it is noteworthy that “documents related to the U.S. military’s anthrax vaccination program and a Lansing labora tory [BioPort] were among those investigators found recently in an Afghanistan office” in Kabul, Afghanistan, home of bin Laden and al-Qaeda (107). Many of the BioPort “documents described ways to use anthrax as a weapon” (107).
“It’s not unexpected that a terrorist organization like al-Qaeda would be gathering documents,” BioPort spokeswoman Kim Brennen Root told reporters. She denied any link between BioPort and al Qaeda or the 9/11 hijackers and was at a loss as to how confidential papers regarding the use of anthrax as a weapon ended up in the hands of terrorists in Afghanistan.
It is also obvious that the 9/11 hijackers could not have mailed the anthrax. Given that someone or some organization mailed the anthrax from New Jersey and Malaysia—where several of the 9/11 hijackers either lived or met—and given that workers at The Sun were exposed to Anthrax—the wife of the editor having rented an apartment to the hijackers—then we must conclude that whoever was behind the anthrax attacks, was also well aware of the actions, activities, and living and traveling arrangements of several of the 9/ 11 hijackers. Other than the terrorists and their close associates, the only organization with that knowledge, was the CIA. The CIA tracked and even had contact with several of these same 9/11 hijackers and requested that their meeting in Malaysia be secretly taped and photographed (108,109).
Given that the likely source of the anthrax was Fort Detrick, BioPort, Dugway or Battelle, and given that all are linked to the CIA, then it becomes reasonable to assume that those behind the anthrax attacks in September and October of 2001, include the CIA and thus the U.S. government, and perhaps, the DOD, under the Bush administration.
And, let us not forget the Carlyle Group, which has so many ex-CIA officials and so many former Bush administration officials on its payroll, including George H.W. Bush himself, that some have called it a shadow government.
That the CIA was directly involved in or had foreknowledge of the September and October 2001, anthrax attacks, is consistent with what we know of the history of this organization. That the U.S. government, under the Bush administration, was in some way involved is also evident based on the behavior of top officials in the Bush administration, who began taking the anti-anthrax medication, Cipro, weeks before the first attack was made public, that is, on 9/11/2001.
As first reported by Associated Press (110), “White House personnel were given Cipro six weeks ago,” that is, on 9/11/2001. “White House officials won’t discuss who might be receiving the anthrax-treating antibiotic now. On the night of the September 11 attacks, the White House Medical Office dispensed Cipro to staff accompanying Vice President Dick Cheney as he was secreted off to the safety of Camp David, and told them it was a ‘precaution,’ ac cording to one person directly involved.”
According to the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch (111), President George W. Bush twice refused to answer when he was asked about this, or when asked if he had been tested for anthrax.
When coupled with information indicating that the White House began taking Cipro on 9/11/2001, long before the first anthrax attacks became public and on the same day as the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and Twin Towers, we must conclude that the Bush administration, and most certainly Dick Cheney, had advanced knowledge that the anthrax attacks were about to begin.
“We believe that the White House knew or had reason to know that an anthrax attack was imminent or under way.” —Larry Klayman, Chairman of Judicial Watch.
“We did not know about the anthrax attacks. Period!” responded Gordon Johndroe, White House spokesman. The reason staffers were given Cipro was “a precautionary measure in the early hours of Sept. 11 before the situation could be fully assessed,” Johndroe explained.
Note the words: “Early hours.” Had the Bush gang begun taking Cipro before the first plane struck?
Of course the Bush administration knew in advance that an anthrax attack was in the works. Note that they did not take antidotes for smallpox or other biological weapons. Only anthrax.
The Bush administration not only knew in advance, they welcomed the attacks, which is why they were careful to ensure that they, and they alone, would be protected, whereas the American public would be further terrorized.
There is a pattern here. They knew about the anthrax, and they knew in advance that terrorists would hijack commercial jets and slam them into the World Trade Center—which is why Attorney General John Ashcroft quit flying on commercial jets 6 six week before the 9/11 hijackings.
Terrorism almost always benefits right wing governments. The threat of terrorism, especially if it can be blamed on “opposition,” or “terrorist” groups, is a well established means of consolidating and increasing right-wing government power. The anthrax attacks which spread panic throughout the nation, in October of 2001, is exactly what one might expect of a government which has a long history of using biological weapons on its own citizens.
Indeed, like the Nazi laws passed 70 years prior, the Patriot Act, signed into law by Bush, suspends or curtails a number of constitutionally guaranteed civil rights, i.e., individuals can be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge; police powers are increased enabling them to monitor private telephone conversations or to conduct secret searches with minimal judicial oversight; private business records can be seized even if there is no evidence of a crime; American citizens can be spied on for “intelligence” purposes and without the need of a warrant; even librarians can be ordered to provide police with lists of all books and reading material checked out by a “person of interest” even though there is no evidence of a crime.Continue reading →

“Some of the biggest men in the U.S. in the fields of commerce and manufacturing know that there is a power so organized, so subtle, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” -President Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the USA Continue reading →
Throughout the 1930′s and early 1940s, Prescott Bush, the Harrimans, Rockefellers, and their associates, had been in business with Nazis and the terrorist brotherhood, the SS. With the assistance of the Dulles brothers, who were playing pivotal roles in and out of the White House, the Brotherhood of Death began expanding its cancerous tentacles into the heart of the United States government. With the help of friends in high places, including Dulles and hundreds of Nazis in the new CIA, Bush and friends were not only able to completely cover up their treacherous crimes, but would use the government of the United States as a tool for committing new ones.

“Carl Bernstein, writing in the October 1977 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, reported that more than 400 American journalists worked for the CIA, and that the New York Times was one of the CIA’s closest media collaborators. Yet other CIA assets included Philip Graham, publisher of the Washington Post, as well as Newsweek and Time magazine and CBS news. In December of 1977, the New York Times reported that “more than eight hundred news and public information organizations and individuals,” had been on the CIA’s payroll.” Continue reading →
The economy of the world is dependent on black gold, oil that is. Saudi Arabia has the largest pool of oil reserves. The desert kingdom is awash with oil. The second largest known reserves are beneath the soil of Iraq. However, in the 1970s, evidence began to accrue to suggest that beneath the Caspian Basin and in the adjoining Central Asian states of Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Uzbekistan, lay incredible huge pools of oil, perhaps as much or more than the total reserves of Iraq. Continue reading →
This partnership, which has its roots firmly entrenched in Nazi Germany, was given renewed emphasis when Khalid bin Abdul Aziz (King Khalid) became the fourth King of Saudi Arabia, reigning from 1975 to 1982… It was during the co-reign of these two monarchs, that the bin Ladens became business partners with the Bush family. The Bush clan also forged relations with other Saudi families who would later play a significant role in financing and aiding the 9/11 terrorist attack on America. Continue reading →
Although many Nazi doctors were hanged, just as many be came agents of the CIA and United States government, including Walter Schreiber, who helped conduct many of the Nazi medical experiments at Dachau. Yet another famous Nazi, Dr. Josef Mengele—the ultra-sadistic “angel of death”— also began working for the good ‘ol USA. Continue reading →

The Bush administration and high ranking members of the FBI and CIA, have claimed that it is impossible for the CIA to plant or recruit spies from within terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda. That differences of language, religion, and ethnicity, make recruitment impossible. American spies would “stand out like a sore thumb” and would be killed and eliminated by “evil doers.” Continue reading →
Indeed, just as the Bush family and their associates have partnered with the bin Laden family and a number of Saudis and Pakistanis who helped finance the 9/11 attack, George H.W. Bush, his CIA and FBI, the Saudis and Pakistanis were also linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombers.Continue reading →
12. TERROR FOR OIL
In 1996, soon after the Taliban took Kabul, and following the arrival of bin Laden, the Taliban leaders were persuaded to start talking business with the Bush clan, and to agree to the construction of an oil pipeline. Soon, the Taliban were on their way to Houston, Texas—Bush country. The Taliban were then dined and lavishly entertained by executives of the oil company, Unocal, the same Unocal that has extensive ties to the current administration of George W. Bush. Continue reading →
Immediately following 9/11, George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice, made it vehemently clear that they opposed any public or congressional inquiry into the so called “intelligence failures” which led to this horrible tragedy. Bush, Cheney, and Rice, all mouthed the same self-serving absurdities: an investigation would interfere with the war on terrorism. Continue reading →
White House aids entered the room where Cheney was still enjoying the spectacle on TV. They told him that a Boeing 757, an American Airlines commercial jet had been hijacked by terrorists. They feared that it might be headed directly toward Washington, the nation’s capital. Continue reading →
