3.3. Suspicious Outbreaks

 

3.1. Identifying Biological Warfare Attacks

 

We are in the middle of a world-changing war. This is no ordinary war, however. Most of the
victims of this warfare aren’t even able to identify it as war, nor do they understand that
they are combatants in it. It’s called fifth-generation warfare. Source

 

In reading the following examples, I would ask that you keep in mind the treatise by Leonard Horowitz and Zygmunt Dembek on the common signs used to identify a bio-warfare agent:

 

        1. Disease caused by an unusual, rare, or uncommon pathogen, or an unusual strain of a common pathogen, indicating it was potentially genetically engineered

2. Lack of an epidemiological explanation, i.e., no clear idea of source or origin

3. Unusual presentation or manifestation of the disease, i.e., race-specific

4. Unusual geographic or seasonal distribution

5. Multiple epidemics. Simultaneous outbreaks at different locations with the same organism

6. Reverse or simultaneous spread. Diseases typically occur first among a susceptible animal population, then spread to humans. If these two are simultaneous or if the human disease precedes animal infections, we can be suspicious;

 

According to the brief description above, there are a few recent disease outbreaks that would seem to properly qualify as potential bio-warfare agents. The first that come to mind are AIDS, SARS, MERS, US Bird Flu, US Swine Flu, China bird flu. China swine flu, Hantavirus, Lyme Disease, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Polio, Foot and Mouth Disease, the Gulf War Syndrome, and ZIKA. And COVID, if you’re inclined to think that way.

 

3.2. Project Bacchus – A Conspiracy Theory for you

 

No listing such as this would be complete without a good conspiracy theory, and we are fortunate to have one. For background, Project Bacchus was an exceptionally secret project by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency intended to see if it were possible to construct a biowarfare facility – specifically to produce anthrax – “in a foreign country”, using off-the-shelf equipment and doing so without arousing suspicion or being discovered. It seemed obvious the CIA wanted to produce such facilities in foreign countries and disperse the anthrax, leaving the local government without a clue as to how it happened. However, the “official story” was that this was an attempt to learn if foreign terrorists on US soil might be able to accomplish such an effort. But, if this were really the case, there would have been no need for the extreme secrecy. [110] [111]

 

In any case, the “scientists” did manage to find an abandoned building where they could work without scrutiny, and they did manage to build their mini anthrax factory and produce several kilograms of anthrax. Part of what turns this story into a conspiracy theory is all the inconsistencies in the story, and how the official narrative changed with each new discovery and revelation of details. Part of the initial story was that the scientists produced not a biological pathogen but merely a few kilograms of a harmless pesticide. [112]

 

[121]

 

The project was discovered and revealed by New York Times reporters Judith Miller, Stephen Engelberg and William J. Broad. [113] Shortly after this, they published a book containing further details. The book, Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War that also covered Bacchus’ two sister projects, Clear Vision [114] and Jefferson, [115]  which also came to light at about the same time. The book attracted much attention. [116] [117] [118] [119] [120] It is available for download on archive.org. [121]

 

This is where things become interesting. First, the original stated purpose would have to be fraudulent – the idea that “foreign terrorists” might be able to enter the US, build an anthrax factory, and distribute the pathogen among the population. It might as well be stated bluntly that a few disaffected Uzbeks with AK-47s and big ambitions might well be able to enter the US, find a suitable location, and maybe construct something, but how would they obtain the seed anthrax needed to begin production? You can’t make anthrax from sunshine and dandelions; you need the actual pathogen. Can you picture foreign terrorists walking into Fort Detrick and saying, “Good morning. We would like to buy a few pounds of anthrax, please.”? On the other hand, if they brought the seed anthrax with them, they would have no need to build a factory, would they? They needed only enough to mail a few letters. And if all I want to do is to poison a few US senators and the Editors of the New York Times, why not just mail the letters from whatever country I’m in? Why go to all the trouble and expense of coming to the US and building a factory for something I can conveniently do from my home in Geneva? And with much less risk. The original stated purpose may appear superficially plausible, but, with a bit of thought, the entire idea is ridiculous.

 

Project Bacchus ran in 1999 and 2000, and news of it escaped confinement and was revealed to the public on September 4, 2001. It was only a few days later that a series of letters containing anthrax spores were sent through the mail to various locations in the US, addressed to two senators, several news media offices, and various other public locations. The attacks resulted in five deaths, 17 illnesses and a nationwide scare.

Naturally, the FBI launched an investigation into the attacks, which apparently became one of the largest and most complex investigations in the agency’s history. After a lengthy investigation, The FBI concluded that Dr. Stephen Hatfill, an American physician and biological weapons expert, was the sole culprit who perpetrated the attacks. He became the subject of extensive media coverage, he lost his job, his home was repeatedly raided, his phone tapped, he was apparently under surveillance for years. In 2008, after seven years of harassment, the government officially exonerated Hatfill of any involvement in the anthrax attacks and settled with a $5.8 million payment. [122] [123] It should be noted that the courts railed against the FBI for their incompetent and malicious investigation, saying that no one should have been subjected to such an obvious personal atrocity for seven years.

Having failed with Hatfield, the FBI then decided the culprit was Bruce E. Ivins, a scientist at AMRIID, the Fort Detrick source of all the highly-weaponised anthrax in the US. However, Ivins conveniently committed suicide before the FBI had a chance to prove their case or to indict him. [124] The “overdose of pain killers” is not as good as MOSSAD’s “surprise heart attack”, but we must work with whatever tools we have available. I should note here that apparent suicides are much too plentiful in the US whenever such an event would be politically expedient. Think of Gary Webb, who was about to reveal evidence connecting the CIA to extensive cocaine-dealing in the US, and who conveniently “committed suicide” a day before he was to reveal his evidence – the only man in history to have committed suicide by shooting himself in the head twice. Or think of Steve Kangas, or Karen Silkwood. Or, for variety, think of Pat Tillman who was accidentally killed by “friendly fire” in Afghanistan. We don’t normally think of “friendly fire” as including three closely-grouped shots to the forehead at close range, but then this is America and maybe things are different here. [125]

 

The FBI investigators claim to have concluded that Ivins had the means, motive, and opportunity to carry out the attacks, had been in possession of the various strains of anthrax used in the letters, and had a grudge against the United States government. But immediately, various scientists and media reporters dismissed the FBI claims against Ivins, stating they were not only inconclusive but possibly fraudulent. [126] [127] To make matters even more interesting, “it was determined that the spores in the letters were derived from a batch of the Ames strain of anthrax that had been created and maintained at USAMRIID”. Now we know where the “terrorists” obtained their seed anthrax for their factory.

 

Then, to assist in the “post-mortem” investigation, the FBI and the CDC gave permission to destroy the Iowa anthrax archive. This was not only described as “an enormous surprise”, but it served to make further investigation impossible since the crucial evidence had been destroyed. Of course, the case was then never solved. What a surprise.

 

The media and many people connected the anthrax attacks with 9/11, which served immeasurably to smoke up the room. However, a few others who were paying attention, made different connections. First, the actual scheme seems to have been an experiment to determine (1) if a small anthrax lab could be built in absolute secrecy, but more importantly (2) to disperse that pathogen and determine whether it could be traced back to that secret lab, or to Fort Detrick or Dugway where the seed originated. And that would require, despite the exposure by the New York Times reporters, the “terrorists” to still distribute those anthrax letters and see if the secrecy would hold. However, the public exposure of the plot required a change in plans – to find someone to blame. Thus, Hatfill and Ivins were chosen as the sacrificial lambs to take away the focus from the CIA and/or military – and Project Bacchus. And, for seven years, it seems to have accomplished precisely that: everyone forgot about the CIA and their mini-anthrax lab, and focused on two innocent men until the story was old news and no one cared any more. And the “suicide” provided closure to the story.

 

The conspiracy conclusion of course is that the CIA not only manufactured the anthrax but also distributed it through the letters. In case you are tempted to say, “They would never do that”, there is no shortage of real examples of the US government (and other governments) deliberately staging terrorist activities to further political aims. Think of Operation Gladio the US sponsored in Europe, causing multiple terrorist attacks, and killing a great many people, simply to frighten European populations into electing Right-Wing governments. [128] This is real, and there are many other such examples. You may recall Operation Northwoods, [129] where the CIA wanted to fill an American airliner with college students on holiday, send the aircraft off-course near Cuba, shoot it down, then use that as an excuse to declare war on Cuba. It was only President Kennedy’s infuriation that prevented this from actually taking place. The US military, the CIA, and the US government establishment itself, have never had much hesitation in killing American civilians or anyone else if a desired political aim could be thereby achieved. That’s reality, and you have to live with it. I don’t know the truth of this, but it is certainly the kind of thing the US military and CIA would do, proven by the fact that they have done similar things on many occasions.

 

As further proof, let me remind you of the callous and obscene nature which has always pervaded the US government: Kodak’s discovery of radiation:

 

Source

 

Kodak began receiving customer complaints about fogged film, the cause of which was quickly traced to corn husks from Indiana that Kodak used as packaging material for its film. A Kodak physicist discovered that all corn husks were heavily contaminated with radioactivity. After this, the US government agreed to secretly provide Kodak with advance information on all future nuclear tests, including “expected distribution of radioactive material in order to anticipate local contamination”. Unfortunately, the population were not provided with the same ‘advance notification’ as were Kodak’s corn husks, the people not being relevant to corporate profits. The victims now tell us, “In fact, the Government warned the entire photographic industry and provided maps and forecasts of potential contamination. Where, I ask, were the maps for dairy farmers? Where were the warnings to parents of children in these areas? The Government protected rolls of film, but not the lives of our kids. Why did they do that when they had all the information about hot spots and fallout, and yet they did not warn the people of this country about the dangers inherent in radioactive fallout? Why has the government withheld information until now?” It is reprehensible that our citizens were intentionally exposed to radioactivity and yet those who knew remained silent – even in the face of evidence that said if we provided treatment and information early, we might alleviate suffering or prevent diseases.” We really must pity these Americans who, despite the overwhelming evidence, cannot bring themselves to accept the truth that their government didn’t inform them of the radioactivity because they were the guinea pigs in the tests. The painful deaths of those millions of children were not accidents from above-ground nuclear tests; they were the purpose of the tests. [130]

 

Nevertheless, this is a good conspiracy theory. You decide.

 

3.3. Suspicious Outbreaks

3.3.1. Hantavirus

The Ptinus fur beetle, also known as the Whitemarked Spider Beetle, alleged to be used as an insect vector for delivery of anthrax spores during the Korean War (picture from the report of International Scientific Commission, 1952). This Source provides shocking details and facts about the U.S. biological warfare campaign undertaken during the Korean War, and in particular, the use of anthrax as a biological weapon against China, which had entered the Korean War in late 1950.

 

In mid-1993, a strange disease emerged in the US, the infections concentrated in a four-state area. In this case, the virus appeared to attack only native Indians who developed sudden respiratory problems and were often dead within hours. [131] Most victims reported “not feeling well” one day, and were dead the next, from what appeared as a very mysterious pathogen with an undeterminable source.  “In his 30-plus years as a doctor, Bruce Tempest had never seen anything like it. A Navajo man having trouble breathing showed up at the emergency room of a small hospital in Gallup, N.M. Less than an hour later, he was dead. The man had been young, athletic and otherwise healthy. His fiancee had died days before, also from sudden breathing problems. Tempest remembers thinking “This is something different. It just doesn’t fit”.”

 

Then on September 10, 2012, the Los Angeles Times ran an article discussing the topic of doctors “still trying to diagnose mysteries of the Hantavirus” more than 20 years after this deadly pathogen was first identified in the US in 1993. [132]  But then, “a lucky clue” arose from a television viewer, a physician who stated this illness seemed very similar to that caused by a virus he had observed the US military using in Korea in the 1950s. And sure enough, tests proved the illness to be caused by a variation of the same Hantavirus that attacked troops in Korea. The virus attracted attention because some American troops were accidentally exposed to it in Korea, most of whom died very suddenly. Two facts that were eliminated from the public reports of the time: (1) the virus attacked North Koreans and Chinese in greater numbers, and (2) this Hantavirus was one item in the treasure trove of biological weapons the Americans inherited from Dr. Ishii and his Unit 731. The Japanese were light-years ahead of the Americans and the Western Allies in virus research and had isolated the lethal Hantavirus by the late 1930s, with much evidence it was used against China by the Japanese and later against both China and North Korea by the Americans. It seems that some of this weaponised material escaped containment and exposed American and South Korean soldiers to their own handiwork.

 

Now think about this in terms of the common signs used to identify a bio-warfare agent:

 

1. Disease caused by an unusual, rare, or uncommon pathogen, or an unusual strain of a common pathogen, indicating it was potentially genetically engineered. Check. Unusual and rare indeed. And nearly identical to the strain the US used in Korea, except that this variety attacked the respiratory system instead of the renal system.

2. Lack of an epidemiological explanation. i.e., no clear idea of source or origin. Check. This virus seemed to come from nowhere, and no source was identified, nor was a patient zero.

3. Unusual presentation or manifestation of the disease, i.e., race-specific. Check. There were no reports of the virus attacking anyone other than native aboriginals, leading to speculation the US military had isolated certain genes in natives that made them susceptible to a particular strain of this virus, and then produced it.

4. Unusual geographic or seasonal distribution. Check. The virus appeared only an the confluence of four states, an area heavily populated with natives.

5. Multiple epidemics. Simultaneous outbreaks at different locations with the same organism. Check. The virus appeared in different locations at the same time. and then spread

6. Reverse or simultaneous spread. Diseases typically occur first among a susceptible animal population, then spread to humans. If these two are simultaneous or if the human disease precedes animal infections, we can be suspicious. Check. No animal source.

 

In 2006, a disingenuous apologist named Robert Neff wrote an article stating that “a few members of the United Nations forces” in Korea fell ill from a mysterious disease. (Note that the partitioning of, and genocide in, North Korea is now attributed to ‘the United Nations’ rather than US meddling.) Mr. Neff does admit the disease that struck his “United Nations forces” did indeed resemble the hemorrhagic fever which the Japanese “had encountered” in Manchuria. It’s hardly a surprise the Japanese “encountered” it, since they created it. But Mr. Neff, in his rush to exonerate the US from culpability, fails to make the obvious connection that was made by every other medical researcher – namely that from all the facts on the ground, it appears that the US put to almost immediate use Ishii’s weaponisation of the hantavirus. Many reputable medical researchers have stated this disease did not originate in Korea but was introduced by the Americans as a biological weapon.

 

Back to the outbreak in the US in 1993 that appeared to affect only North American aboriginals: Barbara Knust, a CDC epidemiologist, said, “The biggest mystery is we don’t have a good explanation [as to the cause].” I have an explanation. All she needs to do is ask.

 

3.3.2. Lyme Disease

 

[133]

 

In 2004, Michael C. Carroll published a book titled, “Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government’s Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory”. Amazon carries two versions of the book, the original, [133] and an update. [134] The book is available to read on archive.org. [135] 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 being researched for 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 where it still resides – [136] [137] and we should ask ourselves why Homeland Security is operating BSL-4 animal pathogen labs instead of terrorising American citizens by its more usual methods.

 

Lyme disease has a gradual onset, often with flu-like symptoms. Individual can have unexplained fevers or hot and cold spells. Memory, planning, reading, brain processing, and judgment may be impaired. Fatigue and exhaustion are common as well as sleep problems and headaches. Sensitivity to light and sounds is increased so people can feel assaulted by the world around them. Source.

 

Our main current interest in Plum Island relates to an outbreak of Lyme disease, [138] [139] 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 infected the soldiers suffering from the Gulf War Syndrome, both Lyme Disease victims and Gulf War veterans mostly suffering precisely the same symptoms. “At a cancer center in Houston, Texas, Dr. Garth Nicholson discovered that many of those returning soldiers were infected with a genetically-altered strain of Mycoplasma that was clearly man-made and commonly used in the production of biological weapons.” [140] 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 casewhich were the specialties of both Erich Traub and Dr. Ishii’s Unit 731 and entrenched in Plum Island laboratories.

 

MSNBC ran an article stating the CDC had admitted Lyme Disease was a biological weapon, but the page is at times unavailable. [141] This is a quote from the article: US Government Admits Lyme Disease Is A Bioweapon: “SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The $10.6 million Margaret Batts Tobin Laboratory Building will provide a 22,000-square-foot facility to study such diseases as anthrax, tularemia, cholera, lyme disease, desert valley fever and other parasitic and fungal diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified these diseases as potential bioterrorism agents.[142]

 

One author noted that Lyme Disease is “an ideal bio-war 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.”

 

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 an article in the August 6, 2002 Journal of Degenerative Diseases, that Plum Island was definitely the source of Lyme Disease, [143] 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.

 

Karl Grossman, a full-time professor of journalism at the State University of New York, spent five decades investigating the U.S. government laboratory on Plum Island, which is “shrouded in secrecy.” Grossman was the first journalist who exposed the U.S. government’s admission to doing biological warfare work on Plum Island in 1971, and is convinced also this is the source of Lyme disease. [144]

 

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, and that caused “skin rashes” in Europe in 1883″.

 

The establishment is fighting back in other ways too. With every such event, there are many people (who are often paid) who write disclaimers and “prove” all doubters are conspiracy theorists. Tufts University tells us that the “Lyme Bacterium Predates the U.S. Lab That Conspiracy Theorists Say Unleashed Ticks on Public” [145] And of course, Snopes is always there to “debunk” the truth. [146] Others disagree: [147] Kris Newby published “Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons[148] in which he says, “if a scientist named Willy Burgdorfer had not made a confession in 2013, the secret that Lyme disease came from a biological weapons program would have died with him”. And Dr. Leonard Horowitz agreed with Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee investigating this, that the outbreak of Lyme Disease was a deliberate attack. [148a]

 

Again, think about this in terms of the common signs used to identify a bio-warfare agent:

 

1.Disease caused by an unusual, rare, or uncommon pathogen, or an unusual strain of a common pathogen, indicating it was potentially genetically engineered. Yes. Unusual and rare indeed.

2.Lack of an epidemiological explanation. i.e., no clear idea of source or origin. Yes. This virus seemed to come from nowhere, and no source was identified, nor was a patient zero.

3.Unusual presentation or manifestation of the disease, i.e., race-specific. Yes. Lyme disease infected only people living in Lyme, Connecticut – from where it spread.

4.Unusual geographic or seasonal distribution. Yes. The virus appeared only at the mainland, a stone’s throw from the Plum Island lab where it had been created and patented.

5.Multiple epidemics. Not in this case, but the disease is spread by infected ticks, and weaponising ticks was a specialty at Plum Island.

 

3.3.3. Mycoplasma – The Gulf War Syndrome

 

 

It doesn’t seem well-known, but hundreds of thousands of US troops from the first Gulf War in Kuwait have suffered from exposure to depleted uranium (DU) shells that were used against Iraq, resulting in widespread cancers and leukemia, badly-deformed childbirths and a variety of other illnesses. It is even less well-known that there was a second problem. At a cancer center in Houston, Texas, Dr. Garth Nicholson discovered that many of those returning soldiers were infected with a genetically-altered strain of Mycoplasma that was clearly man-made and commonly used in the production of biological weapons. [149] In spite of this, and other overwhelming evidence, the US government denied the use of any of these war materials, and refused either medical treatment or compensation to its soldiers. There appears to be little question that the severely debilitating illnesses and cancers these men experienced, were a direct result of this exposure, but the US military denied not only responsibility but the existence of the disease itself.

 

US soldiers during the Gulf Wars were forced under federal law to take experimental vaccines, the law stipulating that soldiers cannot refuse participation in the military’s medical experiments. Jessica Horjus, a member of the US Air Force, refused to take an anthrax vaccine before being sent to Kuwait, because the vaccine had accumulated thousands of reports of adverse reactions ranging from headaches and vomiting to severe autoimmune and neurological problems. [150] [151] [152] Despite this and despite four years’ service and commendations and Good Conduct Medals, her commander demoted her and cut her pay in half. When she refused additional orders to take the vaccine, she was dishonorably discharged from the US military. Others who have refused the vaccinations have been imprisoned, and many threatened with up to 10 years in prison. Soldiers, citizen groups and members of Congress have demanded that Defense Department officials cease the vaccinations, but to no avail. The US military is determined to accumulate statistical and biological experience with its weaponised anthrax, and requires test subjects, both for the disease and for various treatments or immunisations.

 

Between 2003 and 2004, 181,000 artillery shells containing depleted uranium were used throughout Iraq, causing birth defects in a huge number of children. Source

 

One article by a man with the unlikely name of Matt Saintsing tells us the cause was unexplained until now – until someone discovered it was cause by the nerve gas Sarin, that Saddam had in storage and that was accidentally released when the US bombed everything in Iraq. [153] It was such an apparent stroke of luck that a team of researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School “looked at the genes” and learned the truth. Dr. Robert Haley, the study’s lead author and director of epidemiology in the internal medicine department at UT Southwestern said, “Quite simply, our findings prove that Gulf War illness was caused by sarin, which was released when we bombed Iraqi chemical weapons storage and production facilities.” He provides no evidence, but debunking doesn’t require evidence; empty claims are sufficient. Johns Hopkins wrote an excellent article on the Gulf War Syndrome, but it’s a bit lacking because they apparently weren’t even aware of the existence of mycoplasma. [154] The Mayo Clinic unfortunately did a whitewash, claiming “Psychological and cultural factors undoubtedly contribute” to the Gulf War illnesses, failing to address the issue of how a “psychological illness” could be transmitted from the soldiers to their children and transmuted into a mycoplasma infection. [155]

 

 

However, there are a few bright lights despite of the denials. PubMed admits there is a “High frequency of systemic mycoplasmal infections in Gulf War veterans and civilians[156] Researchgate does address this latter issue with an article “Chronic Mycoplasmal Infections in Gulf War Veterans’ Children“, indicating that the disease not only exists but is contagious and causes autism in children. [157] But you can see the difficulties in trying to ascertain the truth when the government and military steadfastly deny even the existence of an illness and respected institutions blame an infection on mental and emotional disturbances.

 

Again, if we consider the signs of an engineered pathogen distributed among a population, the mycoplasma is a good fit. A rare pathogen, clearly man-made, no apparent source or cause of the outbreak (other than the experimental vaccine), unusual geographic and human manifestation in that it infected only US soldiers returning from the Gulf War. And, like Lyme Disease, a determined effort to silence any discussion of it.

 

3.3.4. The West Nile Virus

 

Source

 

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. That would almost certainly indicate a mutation, either accidental or derived in a lab, the mutation deciding to occur upon landing in the US, although it may have made an intermediate stop at the US military’s NAMRU-2, as did ZIKA.

 

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.

 

According to the ATCC website, they “provide scientists with the biomaterials that move their research forward”. Their “microbial collections” are of course of high standard and are “at the heart of incredible breakthroughs in scientific exploration”. No information on the nature of the breakthroughs, though I must say their involvement with ZIKA aroused my suspicions. [158] Wikipedia tells us ATCC is a “non-profit” organisation that “collects and distributes “standard reference microorganisms” for research and development, and distribute these to more than 150 countries. [159] Wiki also tells us these people have the largest [micro-pathology] collection in the world, although I would have thought this honor would go to either Fort Detrick or the CDC, but they aren’t far from Fort Detrick so perhaps they collaborate.

 

It seems that each time a new pathogen appears in the public realm, the official story involves Africa and travelers or automobile 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 suddenly widely dispersed in the population.

 

I should note here that precisely the same attributions were made with the inexplicable appearance of ZIKA in South America – that it was brought there by a traveler to see the World Cup or, alternatively, arrived in a shipment of automobile tires. Let me note further that ZIKA is transmitted only by mosquito bites, so an “infected traveler to the World Cup” would have to be bitten by quite a few mosquitoes who would then become infected and spread through all of South and Central America, covering 20 million square kilometers and infecting millions of people simultaneously in 20 countries. The claim about the auto tires is merely a clever bit of disingenuous propaganda; most of us have seen used auto tires resting somewhere with water in them, and we know that pools of water are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, so this superficially seems to make sense. But on reflection, how many auto tires do you need, and how many mosquitoes breeding in them, to infect hundreds of thousands of soldiers in many different locations?

 

Dr. Alan Cantwell wrote an article on the West Nile virus [160] 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 in September 29, 1999, titled, “Area Labs Have Long Studied Virus / Yale, Rockefeller began tests in ’50s”. The article appears to have been removed.

 

It may simply have been a fortuitous coincidence that the outbreak of West Nile Fever in New York coincided with a “field test” of a new OraVax vaccine, one which was patented by the US government at Fort Detrick. Dr. Cantwell also noted that with the West Nile virus, as with many other pathogens, the US military even patented the process for using mosquitoes to spread the disease. But then the Wall Street Journal reported that “OraVax Gets $3 Million Grant To Develop West Nile Vaccine”. [161] That seemed fitting, somehow.

 

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 is 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, with many mutations patented by the US military, 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 false.

 

Once again, thinking of the common signs of a bio-warfare agent: West Nile Fever was rare, existing only in other parts of the world, but appeared suddenly in the US with a new strain that was not harmless as the original, but “caused irreparable nervous system damage”. The disease broke out primarily in California, then spread. Further, the appearance of the disease coincided perfectly with the distribution of an experimental vaccine: this is very common with many new disease outbreaks – that they so often appear on the heels of a WHO or other vaccination program, too often to be mere coincidences. This is true, and happens all over the world. There was no identifiable origin, no source. The West Nile virus is a Flavivirus, of the same family as ZIKA, which are normally harmless, but this strain was deadly, and the US government at Fort Detrick patented not only the pathogen but the best means of distributing it. And of course, the official intimidation to silence on the matter. Draw whatever conclusions you think are appropriate.

 

3.3.5. Vaping

 

 

We have all read about the outbreak of lung injuries initially attributed to vaping, or the use of e-cigarettes, that started in the US in 2019 and resulted in around 3,000 illnesses and around 100 deaths, these emergencies mostly involving younger people, especially young men and boys. [162] The reported symptoms included severe pneumonia, shortness of breath, coughing, fever, fatigue, and respiratory failure. From the beginning, this illness was identified as “a localised problem”. Experts in toxicology and addiction said they were sure that the American cases of serious lung injuries linked to vaping were “a US-specific phenomenon”. Dr Anne Schuchat from the CDC (she of COVID fame) said the outbreak was expected to continue for some time, with no indication of how she would know that. [163]

 

There had been for a long time the occasional difficulty related to vaping, but the sudden explosion in 2019 was unprecedented. This was where the speculation began. What was the cause of the severe pneumonias and deaths of the young people that were originally attributed to vaping? First, the “official story”: Officials were quick to condemn vitamin E acetate from the cigarettes as the compound likely behind the mystery illnesses, saying that the substance was found in “nearly every” cannabis vape product they tested. Federal health officials called the substance a “chemical of concern” after finding it in lung fluid samples from 29 patients diagnosed with vaping lung injury.

 

But their diagnosis was clearly nonsense, and the nonsensical aspect increased with each new detail revealed. First, they claimed to have found vitamin E acetate in “nearly every” marijuana product they tested. [164] Its absence in some of the products would obviously negate it as a cause. But more than that, this was in “marijuana vape products” which were by no means the only product being used. Secondly, they found it in lung fluid samples from 29 patients. But there were more than 3,000 patients, 2,970 of whom did not have this compound in their lungs. This is exactly the same as seeing a person in the vicinity of a few bank robberies and then convicting him of every bank robbery that ever happened.

 

 

To make matters worse, the injured patients, according to the authorities, “used a [large] number of different devices, from vaporisers to smaller e-cigarettes, and a variety of different brands of liquids and cartridges. The CDC itself reported no consistency among the illnesses or deaths. [165] No single substance was shown to cause the illness, and investigators conceded there had to be more than one cause [166] – or perhaps a common cause that was not identified. This latter would appear to be the case, since attending physicians unanimously claimed the vaping itself was not the prime cause, that there was another pathogen at work but they had no idea what it was.

 

Even more, a study of lung tissue samples from 17 patients found that the injuries looked like chemical burns or toxic chemical exposure. There were later reports that the lung damage resembled the “ground glass” appearance of COVID damage. It was eventually concluded – in countries other than the US – that the combination of e-cigarettes with COVID-19 could have been the cause, that some aspect of that combination could be deadly even to young otherwise-healthy individuals. It was then that a Taiwanese physician, after examining the evidence, concluded firmly that the symptoms and conditions could not be explained by e-cigarettes. He also stated further that the more than 200 simultaneous “pulmonary fibrosis” cases revealed in the US also experienced conditions and symptoms that could not be explained by pulmonary fibrosis. He wrote the US officials to inform them of his findings and ask them to seriously consider that both illnesses were actually caused by a combination with COVID. They apparently responded by insisting on vaping as the cause,  then silenced further discussion. The Taiwanese doctor then went public to state that the COVID outbreak began in the US much earlier than assumed.

 

I can recall thinking at the time, that the main objective of the official story was to bury some unrevealed truths, since the story simply didn’t make sense as presented because too much contrary evidence was obviously being ignored, and because there were many later indications that COVID had indeed been circulating in the US much earlier than admitted.

 

Let’s look at the common signs of a bio-warfare agent again. Certainly an uncommon pathogen, so uncommon it was never identified or, if it was identified, those in the know kept that knowledge to themselves. There was no epidemiological explanation, no clear idea of source, origin, or cause. It had an unusual presentation in that it affected only those who were using vaping products, and primarily attacked only the young. It also had an unusual geographic distribution and multiple outbreaks of the same pathogen.

 

But there is something else here of importance. Think: A gas line develops a leak, and then ignites, and burns down a large shopping mall. If Wikipedia were to create a page for this event, it would state that a gas line developed a leak, ignited, and burned down a shopping mall. There would be no need to lie because there would be nothing to cover up, nothing to hide. But in every case I have examined where there are serious questions about the veracity of the official story, where we have good reason to form “conspiracy theories’, Wikipedia is there with a page that is replete with lies. And Wiki does so here, opening by telling us that these young people who suffered injury did so because they were “users of illegal, unregulated cannabis vaping products”. [167] Every word in that statement is a lie. There was no evidence that any of the products were illegal or unregulated and, while a large percentage had tried cannabis “at least one time”, the illnesses were by no means restricted to the use of cannabis. And, as is standard, Wiki then fills the room with smoke, and leaves. This fact alone raises my personal suspicions to a high level because, in my experience, Wikipedia fabricates wild tales that support the “official narrative” in every instance that involves a political risk. When Wikipedia begins telling lies, we know that our suspicions are justified. Wiki did a masterful job on SARS, MERS, ZIKA, and others, in the same way.

 

3.3.6. Virginia Nursing home infections

 

 

Immediately prior to the shutdown of Fort Detrick, a mysterious respiratory illness broke out at the Greenspring Retirement Community in Fairfax, an hour’s drive from Fort Detrick. The nursing home had had 63 cases of the disease and three deaths. The “pneumonia of unknown cause” was reported in two nursing homes near Fort Detrick, and immediately after this the CDC announced the closure of the Fort Detrick labs. [168] Then in September, the Maryland health service stated that the “pneumonia of unknown cause” had connections with e-cigarettes, or vaping illnesses. Shortly after that, a pulmonary disease with symptoms highly resembling COVID-19 started spreading in several US states.

 

It may be an odd coincidence that the events appeared to be connected, but the close timing raised many suspicions of cause and effect. At around the same time as Fort Detrick was closed, there were sudden reports of unexplained respiratory disease in two communities in Virginia near Detrick, and others a bit later in Wisconsin. Shortly thereafter, the “vaping” deaths began as well as the pulmonary fibrosis cases. [169] [170] [171]

 

It wasn’t only these two nursing homes. According to the Virginia State health department, the number of reported respiratory cases increased by 50% in a short time. Officials tested for a variety of common virus- or bacteria-borne respiratory illnesses, but failed to identify a likely cause. It is possible that COVID illnesses were mis-diagnosed in these situations since there is evidence that COVID was circulating in the US much earlier than originally thought. One of the odd factors was the timing. Benjamin Schwartz, a health department director, “Seeing a respiratory outbreak in a long-term care facility is not odd. … One thing that’s different about this outbreak is just that it’s occurring in the summer when, usually, we don’t have a lot of respiratory disease.[172] That was precisely the objections being made in many European countries about COVID – that respiratory illnesses never appear during the summer, that they always wait for the “flu season” in the fall. This fact alone raised many suspicions about the synthetic nature of the virus, and the same was true at the nursing homes in Maryland.

 

And just as with the “vaping” illnesses, no specific pathogen was ever identified as the cause of the outbreak, despite extensive testing. [173] [174] [175] As with the supposed vaping illnesses, the situation remained unresolved. We cannot pretend to label every unusual disease outbreak as emanating from a lab, but equally we needn’t silence our concerns and, if suspicions arise due to the circumstances, we must not be fearful of examining these possibilities. A theory cannot be dismissed if it fits all the known facts.

 

Once again, we have an unusual pathogen that could not be identified, an outbreak with no epidemiological explanation, no clear idea of source, origin, or cause. An unusual presentation in that it affected only the elderly – who would be the most susceptible to COVID, an unusual seasonal appearance that belied its apparent nature, an unusual geographic distribution in that it appeared only in nursing homes in the vicinity of Fort Detrick, and we had multiple epidemics of apparently the same pathogen. I would have to say the suspicions appear justified.

 

3.3.7. The Pandemic That Never Was: The 2009 Swine Flu Outbreak

This one has so many delicious aspects that it’s difficult to know where to begin. We can start with Nature Magazine screaming “Swine flu outbreak sweeps the globe“, and telling us that “The world is bracing itself for the imminent onset of an influenza pandemic”. [176] The virus appeared to be a new strain of H1N1 that resulted from a previous triple reassortment of bird, swine, and human flu viruses which further combined with a Eurasian pig flu virus, along with other viruses from Asia and Africa. The WHO declared a worldwide public health emergency, as did the US. Wikipedia led the parade on this one, initially claiming that “perhaps 1.4 billion people” – 21% of the global population – could be infected, only Heaven knowing how many might die. [177]

 

3.3.7.1. The Source and Origin – Official Story

 

Some catholics gathered yesterday at the Metropolitan Cathedral (in Mexico City). They prayed for the sick people, the government and the rest of the society. Hoping they make “good decisions” against the swine flu epidemic in our country. Source

 

“The 2009 swine H1N1 flu pandemic originated in pigs from a very small region in central Mexico, according to a research team headed by investigators at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Researchers used “state-of-the-art genetic analysis” to identify the precise location [where] a pig influenza virus [jumped] into humans.” [178] Science Daily identified the senior author of this “study”, Adolfo García-Sastre, PhD, and we know it must be legitimate just from the length of the man’s title: Director of the Global Health and Emerging Pathogens Institute, Irene and Dr. Arthur M. Fishberg Chair and Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases), and Professor of Microbiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. There were many media reports of large numbers of infections and deaths in Mexico.

 

You may not know that mixing viruses is a messy and unpredictable business. You can spend hours recombining things and not get anything you hoped for. But fortunately, NPR (National Public Radio) enlightens us on a way out of this time-consuming dilemma:

 

“Pigs can become mixing pots for viruses to swap genes and mutate. Scientists say the gene-swapping that gave rise to the newly discovered swine flu virus happened 10 or 20 years ago … but until recently, the virus wasn’t able to spread among people. It acquired that ability only last year, when the older triple virus combined again with two other pig viruses that circulated in North American and Eurasian swine.” [179] No need for extravagant efforts; just let Nature do it for you. And who knew that pigs were “mixing-pots” for viruses?

 

It is important to note that – also according to the NPR – “The virus may also be causing sickness in sub-Saharan Africa”. However, Laurie Garrett, a senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations (a medical expert if there ever was one) said they have no information because “public health officials only have good data from countries with strong public health systems”, and besides, countries “are no longer reporting [infections and deaths]”. This CFR medical expert also stated ominously that the virus “could cause as many as 90,000 deaths in the United States” alone. [180] In other words, this innocuous infection is sweeping the world and likely to kill huge numbers of Americans and, even though we have no facts or information to verify any of this, we are wildly speculating to drive up the public’s anxiety level and encourage them to get vaccinated.

 

The NPR and CFR cogitations may be correct. The NCBI tells us that pigs have “avian-like” viruses that are close to H1N1 viruses isolated in Europe and the H3N2 viruses isolated in Asia. Unfortunately, the sequences of these genes do not directly reveal the immediate source of the virus, but NCBI speculates that “The three parents of the virus may have been assembled in one place by natural means, such as by migrating birds“. [181] Sadly, it was not explained how a flock of Canada geese flying from Saskatchewan to Tijuana would arrange to stop in Bakersfield and “assemble” a group of viruses before proceeding on their journey. But let’s not spoil their story. However, pigs must have been involved somewhere in this mess, because Martha Nelson, an evolutionary biologist  at the US NIAID, said, “We learned a lot about pig farming [in researching this]”. [182]

 

3.3.7.2. A Media Extravaganza in Support of the Official Story

Reuters (who are shameless liars as bad as Wikipedia) did their best to put a bad face on this by claiming this influenza was “15 times deadlier” than officially admitted by health authorities. This was based on “a new study” by “an international group of scientists” who claimed that the WHO estimate of worldwide deaths at only 18,500, was in gross error and that “as many as 579,000 people” might have died. According to Reuters, all the other deaths were not counted because those people were “without access to a health system”. [183] Dr. Fatimah Dawood of the US CDC, who led the study, said “This pandemic really did take an enormous toll”, without explaining how such a minor fatality rate equated to “an enormous toll”. But Fatimah did promote the encouragement of vaccines “in areas where the death toll is likely to be highest.” I want to note here that this Reuters article contained “Reporting by Sharon Begley and Editing by Michele Gershberg and Xavier Briand“.

 

To summarise the Official Story:

 

Part of this summary is inconclusive, since NPR and the NCBI are still arguing about whether it was the pigs or the migrating hummingbirds that collected several kinds of viruses from humans, birds, pigs, raccoons, probably skunks and porcupines, from Asia, Africa, and the Americas, and then “mixed” the viruses to form this deadly new strain. But the important thing is that investigators from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai were able to identify “the precise location in Mexico where a pig influenza virus jumped into humans.” It was on the pig farm of Hector Gonzalez, 30 Kms. from Guadalajara, in his pig sty #3 of 500 sq. meters (North-East corner) where it happened. One of his farm laborers, Speedy Gonzalez, was infected by one of the pigs, then traveled to the US where he infected at least 80 million Americans, then spread his virus to sub-Saharan Africa, killed 579,000 people, pausing just long enough to give the pharma companies $40 billion in revenue from selling needless vaccines that killed more people than did the virus.

This last is not an idle claim. There were many reports of serious adverse reactions and deaths resulting from the swine flu vaccine. [184] The IBI Times published an article, “Brain-Damaged UK Victims of Swine Flu Vaccine to Get £60 Million Compensation“. “Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times: “There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication.” Following the swine flu outbreak of 2009, about 60 million people, most of them children, received the vaccine. It was subsequently revealed that the vaccine, Pandemrix, can cause narcolepsy and cataplexy.” [185]

 

3.3.7.3. The Actual Results

 

In the end, the CDC admitted that infections and mortality were “no higher than that of the yearly seasonal flu”. The CDC “estimated” around 7,000 deaths (other informed estimates were less than half that) and as many as 80 million infections – far less than a normal seasonal flu. The CDC tells us that “Estimating the number of individual flu cases in the United States is very challenging because people don’t seek medical care”. [186] Of course, the reason they don’t seek medical care is because they aren’t sick, but let’s not spoil the CDC’s story.

 

Then, no doubt with great shame, Wikipedia had to retract its original story: “There had also been speculation that the flu death toll in Mexico could be lower than first thought.” Note that the huge death tolls in Mexico were initially reported as fact in the media, while the actual facts of a very low death toll are now termed “speculation”. This kind of playing with words is very common in the media and is very serious because it changes the meanings of words and distorts our understanding of events. Gerald Evans, head of the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease Canada, said there was a huge amount of speculation, and that “what seemed to be evidence of dozens and dozens of deaths”, in the end was people who died of other causes unrelated to influenza. [187] Another Canadian expert,Neil Rau, criticized the WHO’s decision to raise its pandemic alert to level 5, saying it was meant only to cause panic, not because a pandemic actually existed. CNN noted that in any individual week there had been at least 800 deaths in the U.S. due to normal influenza, which was much higher than the 150 total deaths worldwide from the swine flu up to that time.

 

3.3.7.4. Possible or Probable Origin

Outside of the official story by the authorities, the virtually unanimous consensus among all other doctors, scientists, and even casual observers, was that this virus originated in a lab and was leaked. The only discussion was whether the leak was accidental or deliberate. “Top scientists are saying that the current swine flu outbreak came from a vaccine lab”. [188] Shanta Zimmer and Donald Burke from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania wrote in the UK Independent, “One of the most likely routes for the release of the 1950s virus is that laboratory workers became infected accidentally and then infected families and friends.” [189] But if this occurred, we would have been able to identify a source, and we would have had a patient zero. And this version denies the existence of pigs and hummingbirds “mixing” the viruses, as well as eliminating Speedy Gonzalez.

 

An Australian researcher claimed the swine flu was not a natural mutation but a man-made product of genetic experiments leaked from a laboratory. [190] The British Medical Journal, Opinion section, reported that many mass media were speculating that the swine flu was a “man-made disaster”. The study in the New England Journal of Medicine said: “Careful study of the genetic origin of the (1977) virus showed that it was closely related to a 1950 strain, but dissimilar to influenza ‘A’ (H1N1) strains from both 1947 and 1957.” This finding suggested that the 1977 outbreak strain has been preserved since 1950. The re-emergence was probably an accidental release from a laboratory source. [191] And the Daily Mail ran an article titled, Swine flu pandemic caused by accidental leak from laboratory.” [192]

 

3.3.7.5. Criticisms of Officials and the Official Story

 

To put the key question most crudely: was the world wrongly persuaded to believe it was in the grip of a ghastly and severe pandemic by decision-making bodies unduly influenced by pharmaceutical companies hoping to sell billions of dollars worth of vaccines and anti-viral drugs? report just out from the Council of Europe has come to some devastating conclusions. Source

 

Forbes began an article with this gem: “The H1N1 swine flu outbreak appears to have ended less like the rogue wild boar that United Nations bureaucrats predicted and more like roasted pork tenderloin with apples and sage. From the beginning, the World Health Organization’s actions have ranged from the dubious to the flagrantly incompetent. (The Pandemic That Wasn’t; Henry I. Miller) [193]

 

“Ironically, one might even consider the emergence of the H1N1 flu during the past year a net public health benefit, since it appears to have suppressed, or at least supplanted, the far more virulent and lethal seasonal flu strains. During the second week of January, 3.7% of Americans tested positive for the seasonal flu, compared with 11.5% during the same week last year. The death toll in the U.S. from H1N1 is estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be around 3,900, while in an average year seasonal flu kills about 36,000.” ABC Australia published a stinging rebuke of the entire affair. The article is very worth reading for all the inconvenient truths it contains: [194]

 

“Instead of accolades, the WHO and authorities everywhere are facing an avalanche of disturbing questions about the handling of the swine flu, and the influence of vested interests. To put the key question most crudely: was the world wrongly persuaded to believe it was in the grip of a ghastly and severe pandemic by decision-making bodies unduly influenced by pharmaceutical companies hoping to sell billions of dollars worth of vaccines and anti-viral drugs? A report just out from the Council of Europe has come to some devastating conclusions. The declaration of a pandemic lead to a “waste of huge sums of public money”, a “distortion of priorities” in public health services, the “provocation of unjustified fear” and the “creation of health risks through vaccines and medications” that may not have been sufficiently tested.” Unfortunately, the “the damming Council of Europe report” has been deleted from the Internet. the title was “Faked pandemics – a threat for health.”

 

“The report explains that the WHO definition of a “pandemic” was changed in May 2009, after the first cases of swine flu were reported. The change removed the requirement that a virus’s impact be severe, before a pandemic was declared. The report cites concerns within the scientific community that the WHO rapidly moved towards declaring “pandemic level 6” in June, 2009, when swine flu presented “relatively mild symptoms”. It went on to state that the declaration of the pandemic was only made possible by “changing the definition” and by “lowering the threshold for its declaration.” But it was this all-important declaration which triggered pre-pandemic planning that would prove highly lucrative to industry:pharmaceutical companies had a strong vested interest in the declaration of a pandemic” the report states. At the same time, the membership list of the WHO’s 16-member “Emergency Committee”, instrumental in declaring the pandemic, remains secreta lack of transparency strongly attacked by the report.

 

A joint investigation by the BMJ and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has uncovered evidence that raises troubling questions about how WHO managed conflicts of interest among the scientists who advised its pandemic planning, and about the transparency of the science underlying its advice to governments. Was it appropriate for WHO to take advice from experts who had declarable financial and research ties with pharmaceutical companies producing antivirals and influenza vaccines? Why was key WHO guidance authored by an influenza expert who had received payment for other work from Roche, manufacturers of oseltamivir, and GlaxoSmithKline, manufacturers of zanamivir? And why does the composition of the emergency committee from which Chan sought guidance remain a secret known only to those within WHO? We are left wondering whether major public health organisations are able to effectively manage the conflicts of interest that are inherent in medical science. Source

 

The British Medical Journal, (BMJ) published its own journalistic investigation, revealing that specialists with financial links to the drug industry were intimately involved in WHO pre-pandemic planning: Feature: Conflicts of Interest: WHO and the pandemic flu “conspiracies”. “Key scientists advising the World Health Organization on planning for an influenza pandemic had done paid work for pharmaceutical firms that stood to gain from the guidance they were preparing. These conflicts of interest have never been publicly disclosed by WHO, and WHO has dismissed inquiries into its handling of the A/H1N1 pandemic as “conspiracy theories.” My compliments to Deborah Cohen and Philip Carter who investigated this.
