From 1948 to 1975, the US Army Chemical Corps conducted a long series of top-secret classified human research at the Edgewood Arsenal in the US military’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. The stated purpose was to evaluate the effect of chemical warfare agents and to test protective clothing, but even a cursory examination of the facts leads only to a conclusion that this was full-fledged biowarfare experimentation and testing program. And in fact, a portion of the tests involved psychochemical warfare which was driven by perceived need for new interrogation techniques, as evidenced by a 1949 classified report by L. Wilson Greene, Edgewood’s ‘scientific director’, titled “Psychochemical Warfare: A New Concept of War”. The original report appears unavailable, but we have some references to it.
This entire decades-long effort was referred to as the Medical Research Volunteer Program, and indeed the participants were largely volunteers though much debate ensued later as to the extent of duress involved in obtaining “voluntary agreement”, as well as serious questions about the extent of information these participants actually received about the tests and consequently how informed was their agreement to participate. According to the records, more than 7,000 military servicemen and more than 1,000 civilians were involved in the program, spending a total of about 14,000 months at Edgewood, and were exposed to more than 250 different chemicals and biological agents. Many of the toxins tested were deadly, such as the nerve agents VX and Sarin. According to government documents and class action lawsuits, the “volunteers” were subjected not only to Sarin and VX nerve gases, and various hallucinogens like LSD, mescaline and PCP, but to other psychoactive agents, tear gas, mustard gas, CS gas, BZ, anthrax, botulism, plague, tularemia, Q fever, dioxins, various pesticides and many other compounds.
All these biological agents were explained or excused at the time as being essentially harmless or benign, but many of the volunteers exhibited serious immediate medical symptoms with many claims of long-term illnesses and disabilities arising from these tests. Following a huge public scandal from an unauthorised disclosure of the program and some of its results, the entire set of experiments was abruptly terminated. Accusations of abominable ethics and misrepresentation, to say nothing of huge illegalities, led to a flood of civilian lawsuits.
One of the more unethical aspects of the program was that volunteers were treated for current symptoms and then dismissed, with no follow-up ever being performed to determine the long-term effects of these biological agents – and there were indeed many unpleasant long-term effects. To make matters worse, incomplete records were kept, many claim deliberately, and others destroyed, so that even sincere efforts to locate survivors were often fruitless, the Department of Defense claiming an inability to locate records that would substantiate anyone’s participation in the tests. There were of course the requisite Congressional hearings which essentially whitewashed the entire affair, and eventually compensation was paid to the survivors of only a few ‘volunteers’ who died while participating. Naturally, a military investigation “found no evidence of serious injuries or deaths” from the program, but admitted that the “recruiting process” may have “suggested possible coercion”. As well, the men were sworn to secrecy and under strict military orders to never discuss with anyone either the Edgewood Arsenal or the experiments conducted there, not even with their own family or physicians.
The Congressional Report did note “A refusal to satisfy … legal and moral obligations to locate the victims of experiments or to provide health care or compensation to them, a deliberate destruction of evidence and files (that documented) illegal actions … which were punctuated by fraud, deception, and a callous disregard for the value of human life.” However, in the published memoirs of one of the key scientists behind this project, a Dr. James Ketchum, “To my knowledge, not one [person] died or suffered a serious illness or permanent injury. Statistically, at least one out of a thousand young soldiers chosen at random might be expected to expire during any one-year period. By this logic, Edgewood was possibly the safest military place in the world to spend two months.” Nothing else to say.
On December 11, 2012, The American Conservative published an article by J. Arthur Bloom, in which he wrote, “… the Army recklessly endangered the lives of its soldiers – naïve men, mostly, who were deceived or pressured into submitting to the risky experiments.” The soldiers were never told what they were given, or what the specific effects might be, and the Army made no effort to track how they did afterward. Edgewood’s most extreme critics raise the specter of mass injury – a hidden American tragedy. Doctors informed the volunteers in generalities and asked them to sign a consent form – usually long before any specific test was announced. The forms were designed to offer few details; as one version was drafted, the words “mental disturbance or unconsciousness” were replaced with “discomfiture”. Sometimes a little more information would be provided just before the test began, but not always. Van Sim later confessed that researchers testing nerve gas would tell volunteers that the drug might give them a “runny nose” or a “slight tightness of the chest”.
Few people have any appreciation of the lethality of some of these compounds which were regularly fed to both American servicemen and civilians, sometimes as volunteers, but more often as unwitting participants in what should have been termed ‘Operation Frankenstein”. An article in the New Yorker Magazine on December 17, 2012, noted that the US military decided to pursue the nerve gas Sarin – which is about 25 times as deadly as cyanide, and also VX – which is about 100 times as deadly as Sarin. The New Yorker noted too that these chemicals are readily made into aerosols and are “virtually impossible to handle without casualties”, which typically include the staff as well as the victims. After one test that released the vapors into the atmosphere, apparently so many birds immediately fell dead that the staff had to climb onto the roof to remove all the carcasses.
The New Yorker article also referred to Greene’s report on psychochemical warfare, stating that Greene “wanted to debilitate, in ways that would inspire terror”. According to Greene, “The symptoms which are considered to be of value … include the following: fits or seizures, dizziness, fear, panic, hysteria, hallucinations, migraine, delirium, extreme depression, notions of hopelessness, lack of initiative to do even simple things, suicidal mania.” We can legitimately ask ourselves how this description of purpose coincides with the military’s claim of doing only defensive research. To quote further:
“Edgewood was a citadel of secrets. The psychochemical-warfare program was a small part of the over-all research, and in many respects it was the strangest. Once, Ketchum walked into his office and found a barrel the size of an oil drum standing in a corner. No one explained why it was in his office, or who had put it there. After a couple of days, he waited until evening and opened it. Inside, he found dozens of small glass vials, each containing a precisely measured amount of pure LSD; he figured there was enough to make several hundred million people go bonkers – and later calculated the street value of the barrel to be roughly a billion dollars. At the end of the week, the barrel vanished just as mysteriously as it had appeared. No one spoke about it. He never learned what it was for.”
The New Yorker also noted that at one point the facility was doing research for the C.I.A. on another dangerous BZ-type drug that apparently caused delirium for as long as two weeks at a time. Many victims of this chemical apparently experienced “anxiety, aggression, even terror”, to the extent that the facility was forced to build padded cells for their test subjects to prevent serious injuries. According to the New Yorker and other sources, many subjects became so violent they couldn’t be contained. The article described one case where a subject escaped, with a note in his chart that read, “Subject broke a wooden chair and smashed a hole in the wall after tearing down a 4-by-7-ft panel of padding. He was clearly terrified …” The report noted that four men were necessary to subdue him. Later, the government announced that “the United States would not offensively use the forty-nine tons of BZ that it had stockpiled …” Forty-nine TONS of the chemical. This for “defensive research”?
I wrote earlier that Big Pharma had been involved from the beginning in the US military’s bio-weapons programs. The New Yorker expanded on this as well, with the information that “Edgewood began reviewing hundreds of chemicals, many provided by pharmaceutical companies. One officer remarked, “The characteristics we are looking for in these agents are in general exactly opposite to what the pharmaceutical firms want in drugs, that is the undesirable side effects.” Starting in 1959, the arsenal aggressively pursued phencyclidine – or PCP – which Parke, Davis & Company had marketed as an anesthetic but abandoned because patients were having hallucinations and delusions.”
The commanding officers and senior staff at Edgewood even resorted to using each other as unwitting victims. Documented stories emerged of the site’s commanding officer spiking another officer’s morning coffee with LSD or something worse. LSD had apparently been mixed into cocktails at a base party, and into the Army unit’s water supply. But it wasn’t all bad. The base psychiatrist and military officer James Ketchum, who was a key scientist in this enterprise and whose memoirs were referred to above, told an interviewer, “I was smoking dope and having sex every night”. Lovely.
Dugway Proving Ground
Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) is located 130km southwest of Salt Lake City, in Tooele County, Utah. It is a principal testing facility and range of the US Department of Defence (DoD). Source
In the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, the US military conducted almost 1,200 open-air tests of munitions filled with lethal chemicals, and documents obtained by the Deseret News revealed that at least 500,000 pounds, nearly 250,000 kilograms, of VX and other lethal nerve gases were released into the atmosphere. The same documents obtained by this news medium revealed that more than 300 open-air biological warfare tests were conducted in this area, using lethal versions of anthrax, botulism, the plague, tularemia and Q fever. This same area apparently contains one of the largest depots of chemical weapons in the US, storing almost 14,000 tons of chemicals and chemical weaponry in more than one million containers.
Dead Sheep and Soviet Trickery

March of 1968 experienced one of the more famous events at the Dugway Proving Ground when a military aircraft released several thousand pounds of VX nerve gas into a large and inhabited area, and the next day 6,000 sheep were dead. And not only sheep. One survivor, a man named Ray Peck, told the news that very soon after, a military helicopter landed in his yard, “disgorging officials who collected dead wildlife and performed blood tests on his frightened family”. He claimed that all family members soon began experiencing violent headaches, numbness, burning feelings, psychological loss of control, skin cancers and heart problems. A flood of miscarriages also occurred in area families immediately after this particular test. A military report that remained classified and buried for more than 30 years was finally obtained and made public by the Salt Lake Tribune. The report stated that the evidence was “incontrovertible” that the US military’s VX nerve gas was responsible for the sheep kill and the human conditions as well, but even with this, the military refused to admit negligence or to accept responsibility for the event.
One of the serious problems in researching and documenting events such as these is that there exists a veritable army of individuals, many financed by the military or various of the sociopathic “Think Tanks” but others of indeterminate motivation, all of whom appear desperately determined to discredit the revelations of these atrocities. One such person is a Dr. Steven J. Allen, an apparent editor of something called the Capital Research Center – which receives funding from the Koch Brothers – and which is all you need to know. This so-called independent research center became famous some years back for its published “studies” condemning anti-tobacco lobbyists when it was revealed that substantial funding had been received from tobacco companies.
In any case, our Dr. Allen, who appears to be an expert on almost everything, wrote an article on the US military’s VX nerve gas sheep-kill adventure, titled “Nerve gas, six thousand dead sheep, and Soviet trickery”. To say he was desperately determined to exonerate the military is a bit of an understatement since he produced at least one monograph of about 50 pages to deal with an event that required a few paragraphs at best. Mostly, he attributed the “totally false” accusations against the US military to “muckraking journalists”, to various civilian criminals disguising their sins by blaming the US military, and to various other well-meaning but incompetent individuals. As one example, he noted that “A government official connected with the (biological weapons) program stated that after the VX nerve gas test the “roadsides were just covered with carcasses”, but dismissed this testimony as he did with others by stating that the man “wasn’t a scientist”. We are therefore to conclude that only ‘scientists’, by Dr. Allen’s definition, are competent to notice large numbers of carcasses littering a roadside.
But the best part of Allen’s dissertation was his conviction that only the Russians had anything to gain by blaming a massive sheep kill on the US military, claiming that a couple of Russian saboteurs equipped with simple tools they could acquire on the local American market could have pulled off the entire sheep episode – and in fact did so. The benefit to the Russians, of course, would be that “the nationwide outburst of protest” (about the dead sheep) “shocked President Richard Nixon into putting a hold on the entire U.S. chemical weapons program”, leaving only the Russians with this military advantage. So, in Allen’s delusional world, two Russians brought into the US several thousand pounds of VX nerve gas (or purchased it at the local 7-11), then distributed it over a few thousand square kilometers, perhaps using water pistols, killed all the sheep (and people) while magically escaping contamination themselves, then caught the next plane to Moscow. All without being detected.
Allen informs us that if US military involvement had been “at all plausible”, the Army “would have accepted responsibility in a timely manner”. And of course, we all know that to be true since neither the US government, the US military, nor the CIA have ever, ever denied their involvement in anything. Unfortunately, our Dr. Allen is only one of a great many individuals who feverishly pounce on any and all revelations of US government misconduct and do their best to confuse, obfuscate, overwhelm with irrelevancies, and otherwise contaminate the historical record for the sole purpose of misleading the public. The mass media generally fall into this category, seldom engaging in what we used to call investigative journalism and instead most often producing overt propaganda to parrot the official – and generally unbelievable – story.
Lyme Disease and Plum Island
In 2004, Michael C. Carroll published a book titled, “Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government’s Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory”. Plum Island is located off the coast of Long Island, New York, and is the US military’s main repository for some of the world’s most dangerous animal pathogens intended for research and use as bio-warfare materials. It was first a military base, then turned into a government animal disease laboratory operated by the US Department of Agriculture, then transferred to the Department of Homeland Security. The stated purpose of its life as an animal center was ostensibly to study foot-and-mouth disease in cattle, but when the US Army officially transferred the facility to the “Agriculture Department”, it coincidentally requested Congressional funding of $75 million “to upgrade the facility to a bio-level 4 status for the express purpose of reinstating biowarfare research”.
The reason for the funding was that, according to Carroll, in the 1950s the US military planned a project to cripple the Soviet economy by killing horses, cattle, and swine with biological warfare weapons developed from exotic animal diseases. Carroll wrote that “According to Norman Covert, base historian and public information officer at Fort Detrick, only a handful of scientists were aware of this project. “In many cases there were only maybe five people who knew what was going on in weapons research. People in one lab didn’t know what happened in the next lab, and they didn’t ask.” Details of these Plum Island animal experiments were classified as secret until 1993.”
It isn’t a surprise that Plum island has a dark history as a top-secret biological weapons experimental laboratory, in no small part because this is where the US military located many of its Japanese scientists as part of Operation Paperclip after World War II. One of the few German bio-scientists brought to America, and one of the renowned residents of Plum Island, was Dr. Erich Traub who was the SS chief of biowarfare research at Reims, Germany before his exfiltration to the US, his expertise apparently being the infecting of ticks and mosquitoes with biological pathogens. While this fact is not secret, an important detail always omitted from the historical record is that Traub received all his training at the Rockefeller medical institute in Princeton, New Jersey, where he spent his time on experiments involving anthrax, cholera, hepatitis, and various viruses. Dr. Kurt Blome, another of the top biowarfare researchers at Reims, was captured by the US military who invited him to resume his research and at the notorious military animal lab at Plum Island. There have also been recurring references to various Japanese bio-warfare specialists from Dr. Ishii’s Unit 731 in China, specifically those who specialised in entomology as weaponry – the use of infected insects to devastate civilian populations. And in fact, the Plum Island facilities specifically include a tick research lab.
Our main current interest in Plum Island relates to an outbreak of Lyme disease, which many believe originated here since the island is only a few kilometers from the coast of Lyme, Connecticut, where the disease first appeared in 1970 then exploded around 1975. This is basically a fatal disease, though it kills slowly and painfully. Our interest in Lyme Disease is primarily because it is a mycoplasma-type of illness, the specific strain being ‘mycoplasma fermentens’ which is the same strain that infects the soldiers suffering from the Gulf War Syndrome, both Lyme Disease victims and Gulf War veterans mostly suffering precisely the same symptoms. Not only that, this particular mycoplasma strain was created at Plum Island, and later patented by the US military (U.S. Patent 5,242,820 issued Sept. 7, 1993). A further connection with Plum Island is that this mycoplasma is most commonly transmitted through insects – ticks, in this case – which were the specialties of both Erich Traub and Dr. Ishii’s Unit 731. MSNBC ran an article stating the CDC had admitted Lyme Disease was a biological weapon, but the page seems unavailable.
One author noted that Lyme Disease is “an ideal biowar agent because it evades detection on routine tests, has an enormous range of different presentations, and can mimic everything … Enemy medical staff would never know what had hit them, nor even that ONE illness had hit their population, rather than an unexplained rise in dozens of known conditions.”
The US military claim all animals used on the island are killed to prevent the spread of any diseases, but critics state factually that birds and animals regularly pass between the island and the mainland, making quarantine an effective impossibility. Barbara J. Andrews wrote a most informative article on this topic, dated January 4, 2011. In it she stated that:
“Either the U.S. Army knew nothing about migratory patterns or, as is more logical, Army researchers knew exactly what they were doing. Plum Island is on the Atlantic flyway that runs from the Florida coast up the eastern seaboard to Greenland. A million birds rest on the island before flying on to the Connecticut River estuaries in Lyme. It is possible but doubtful that the Army also overlooked the fact that deer regularly swim between the island and the mainland. In fact, Plum Island researchers believe the deer and birds were recognized as vehicles for distributive tests. Thus, Plum Island’s biological research ramped up with or without regard for the collateral damage that followed. Yankee Magazine, under the Freedom of Information Act, revealed Plum Island’s work included “virus outbreaks, biological meltdowns … and experimental tick colonies, bred for research on vector-borne diseases”. Whether or not infected ticks were deliberately released into surrounding communities … genetically engineered vector ticks from Plum Island infected the human population.”
A truly odd condition, even after many years, is that this subject is apparently forbidden for discussion. The government refuses to discuss the matter, physicians are apparently afraid to diagnose or treat the illness, and health insurance companies refuse to cover the treatment, apparently on the basis that the disease doesn’t really exist. These are precisely the same issues existing with the soldiers suffering from Gulf War Syndrome: the topic is essentially forbidden, the government and the military refuse to talk about it or admit its very existence, and insurance companies refuse to cover “non-existent” illnesses. In keeping with this attitude, medical professionals who attempt to treat or discuss the issue are harassed and sanctioned, intimidated into silence.
Barbara Andrews stated in her article that the August 6, 2002 Journal of Degenerative Diseases revealed that Plum Island was definitely the source of Lyme Disease, and that the disease contains the same pathogen (mycoplasma fermentens) found in Gulf War Illness. More than this, it described “a university-based effort to discourage doctors from diagnosis and treatment for chronic Lyme Disease and to thwart insurance coverage” for the disease. Andrews reported the case of a Dr. Joseph Burrascano, who performed intensive and highly-respected research on Lyme disease and who in 1993 testified before a Senate Committee on the topic. Andrews said Dr. Burrascano risked his career by stating publicly what others had been afraid to discuss, and by criticising academics who apparently published flawed and misleading papers to prevent the real truth from emerging. According to Andrews, Burrascano stated in his testimony:
“… state health departments have begun to investigate, in a very threatening way, physicians who (diagnose and treat the disease) … Indeed, I must confess that I feel I am taking a large risk here today by publicly stating these views, for fear that I may suffer some negative repercussions, despite the fact that many hundreds of physicians all over the world agree with what I am saying here.” Burrascano characterised Lyme as a “political disease” and indeed, he was made an example, charged with professional misconduct. It took seven years before he was finally exonerated and during that long ordeal, Dr. Burrascano’s case was watched surreptitiously but carefully by the medical community.” Andrews noted finally that physicians consider Lyme Disease in the same way as the Gulf War Syndrome – a “red-flag” illness.
Lastly, I should note that the CIA and US military must have hundreds of people (at least) working the media to publish huge volumes of irrelevant trivia, misleading statements, false information, and much more, solely to confuse the public mind and remove the ability to focus on the main issues. One so-called “medical paper” claimed that Lyme Disease was not new, that it had been “first documented as a skin rash in Europe in 1883”. Approaches like this are very clever, but they avoid discussing how the citizens of Lyme, Connecticut and soldiers in Kuwait ended up infected with the same strain of mycoplasma that the US government patented.
The West Nile Virus
The West Nile virus was yet another new pathogen from Africa that suddenly appeared in the US in 1999, then spread to the West Coast, eventually infecting more than 30,000 people in most US states. But like Zika and several others, this virus was mild and appeared to do no great harm in its original location, while in the US the same virus became a kind of permanent infection apparently causing irreparable nervous system damage to many victims.
And, as with Zika, the official story was that this virus had been introduced to North America by a traveler from Africa or the Middle East, or “via a stray mosquito on an airplane” or, more commonly, arrived in shipments of automobile tires. But in fact, the US military had been doing research in the US on the West Nile virus for decades, and it isn’t even a secret that this virus, along with many other pathogens can be freely purchased from a catalogue from various US sources, and has been for decades. Hundreds of labs from around the world make these purchases on a regular basis, the pathogens being openly sold for medical research, one source being the US National Type Culture Collection in Rockville, Maryland, very near to the military’s bio-warfare labs at Fort Detrick. Yet each time another pathogen appears in the public realm, the official story involves travelers or tires and the compliant media parrot this nonsense, knowing it is almost certainly false. Even brief research into the US military’s massive bio-warfare operations would inform interested citizens of the truth of the fact that killer germs and designer diseases are actively offered for sale in the US, including those that, like the West Nile virus, are alleged to have “mysteriously” appeared and been widely dispersed in the population.
Dr. Alan Cantwell wrote an article on the West Nile virus in which he made some very interesting points, one of which was that while many infectious diseases had been banished from the world, a great many new ones had emerged to replace them, including HIV, Lyme Disease, Hepatitis C, Legionnaire’s disease, the so-called “mad cow disease”, the hantavirus and hemorrhagic fever, and Ebola. He wrote:
“Health officials blame increased global travel and globalization, population growth and movements, deforestation and reforestation programs, human sexuality (in the case of HIV), and increased human contact with tropical mini-forests and other wilderness habitats that are reservoirs for insects and animals that harbor unknown infectious agents. Nowhere in the official list of causes is the fact that for many decades millions of animals and innumerable vials of infectious material have been shipped around the world for commercial and biological warfare purposes.” “Epidemiologists suspect that the West Nile virus has for the first time [in 1999] been isolated in humans or animals in the Western Hemisphere, but the virus has for decades made its home in several U.S. research laboratories, including Rockefeller University in Manhattan and Yale University in New Haven, Conn. In fact, investigators there were the first to grow and study the West Nile virus in the United States. The work began in the 1950s when unidentified viral samples from around the world arrived at Rockefeller on a steady basis.” – (From an article in Newsday on September 29, 1999, titled, “Area Labs Have Long Studied Virus / Yale, Rockefeller began tests in ’50s”)
Dr. Cantwell also noted that with the West Nile virus, as with other pathogens, the US military even patented the process for using mosquitoes to spread the disease. In his paper, Dr. Cantwell quoted an article from the Associate Press that stated in part, “In Army tests at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md., japonicus was found to be the “most competent vector” [transmitter] for West Nile virus in a laboratory setting, when compared with other mosquitoes.” from the Federal Register: March 22, 1996 (Volume 61, Number 57, Page 11812) U.S. Patent Application Serial Number 08/348,882, filed November 28, 1994, and entitled “Infectious cDNA Clones of Japanese Encephalitis Virus and Attenuated Strains Japanese Encephalitis Virus Made from the Clones”.
He concluded by writing that with this widespread world trade coupled with advances in gene-splicing technology, has resulted in the production of new laboratory diseases that have potential biological warfare capabilities, stating that “the implications of all these scientific “advances” have naturally led many to suspect or conclude that these repeatedly-emerging new epidemics are man-made.” It’s difficult to disagree with this conclusion, since suspicion naturally arises when a pathogen that has been actively researched by the military for more than 30 years suddenly escapes into the public and is blamed on a mosquito in a Japanese auto tire.
I do not know the source of this virus that emerged in the US, nor have I formed conclusions about the method of its introduction and spread among the US states, but one needn’t be a scientist (nor a conspiracy theorist) to know that the official story created in the White House and promulgated by the mass media, is almost certainly untrue. Our suspicions are further aroused when public investigation into the source and method of dispersal of these pathogens appears to be voluntarily censored, with no news medium or reporter exhibiting any interest in contradicting an official story which is implausible at best and almost certainly fraudulent.
