Guess whose smiling face is at the top of a 2003 article entitled: " 'Weaponized' Flu a Threat, Say Health Science Center Experts"? http://publicaffairs.uth.tmc.edu/distinctions/archive/2003/aug/bio.html DONALD RUMSFELD'S.

Guess who perhaps stands to make a killing if we are all victims of the coming flu pandemic, that was announced by Klaus Stohr at the World Health Organization (WHO) summit on 11/11 (yes, 11/11!)? That's right, DONALD RUMSFELD--the man who brought us the toxic chemical aspartame, the sweetener in most diet soft drinks. Mr. Rumsfeld used to be the Chairman of Gilead Sciences, co-developer of the flu drug Tamiflu, which is touted as being effective in treating bird-flu. Rumsfeld may still have a stake in Gilead worth $5 - 25 million. The 9/22/04 Reuters article by Jim Wolf, regarding Rumsfeld's latest financial disclosure form, does NOT indicate that Gilead was among the investments the Defense Secretary sold this past summer.

Guess who has been contracted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to develop vaccines for the dreaded H5N1 bird-flu virus? Chiron and Aventis Pasteur. Chiron is producing another vaccine for the H9N2 bird-flu virus. "The company will produce up to 40,000 doses of [H9N2] vaccine with and without the MF59 adjuvant for clinical trials." MF59 is a "booster" which contains squalene, an oil which, according to Gary Matsumoto in the book "Vaccine A," was built into the experimental anthrax vaccine that has devastated the immune systems of many military personnel since the "first" Gulf War.

H5N1 is indeed a scary virus. Oddly, it has a single genetic mutation which allows it to be invisible to the body's immune defenses. The virus found in nature does not spread between people. However, work is being done in laboratories to try to figure out what the virus would need in order to make it spread between people.

In an article entitled: "Superflu is being brewed in the lab" (2/28/04), Jacqueline Katz at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Albert Osterhaus at Erasmus University in the Netherlands are named as researchers who are "tweaking the genes" of the H5N1 virus. According to the article, Katz is "testing the ability of the new viruses to spread by air." While Osterhaus "plans to test altered [H5N1] viruses on rodents and macaque monkeys." The trouble with this story is that Osterhaus, who was dubbed "The "Virus Collector" in the title of a May 2003 Science article, submitted a paper for publication in January of 2001 entitled "Pathogenesis of Influenza A (H5N1) Virus Infection in a Primate [i.e., macaque] Model." The submission date suggests that he may have already done the work that the above article claims that he plans to do, four years ago. (Osterhaus has started three companies to benefit from his viral pathogen discoveries.)

If the laboratory-manipulated virus doesn't kill us, I have no doubt that the vaccine will. Klaus Stohr (who worked with Osterhaus on SARS; Osterhaus was "co-discoverer" of the SARS virus) is recommending that "practically everybody" be vaccinated against the H5N1 virus.

We are totally screwed!

EXCERPT: "Unlike PSYOP, MindWar has nothing to do with deception or even with 'selected'--and therefore misleading--truth. Rather it states a WHOLE TRUTH that, if it does not now exist, will be FORCED INTO EXISTENCE by the will of the United States." (Words in all caps above are underlined in the text.)

The SPECIAL VIRUS CANCER PROGRAM, Progress Report #8, 1971 (NCI)

(I believe that this document is the evidence that the U.S. created the HIV/AIDS virus and injected it around the world. See also: Dr. Leonard Horowitz's book "Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola." What they're doing, or proposing to do, with the bird-flu virus looks like the exact same program to me. --JB)
