I haven't been here for a while, but felt this is worth sharing. I posted this on Facebook this past Saturday: A report I received yesterday from Global Research gave me a nauseous feeling, similar to an article in the 1990’s by Dr. William Campbell Douglas that was titled, “WHO Killed Africa.” It is not a question. WHO is the World Health Organization, and the article talked about how the AIDs virus, artificially developed by the US Army’s Biological Warfare Laboratory in Ft. Detrick, Md, was spread in parts of Africa under a fraudulent WHO smallpox (or other known diseases) inoculation program that, unknown to those who were vaccinated, also contained the AIDs virus. Portions of Africa, and certain predominantly black communities in the US, including those in San Francisco and a few other major US cities were infected, followed by outbreaks that could be blamed as coming from primarily the gay communities. That’s how the AIDs epidemic was typically characterized. Saturday’s (Oct 18) Global Research report seems to follow a similar theme. “Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus?” it asks. Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberias College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following: “The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone.” “The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a First in Human Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715), which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.” Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls viral fever bioterrorism, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. “He also asks an important question when he says,“It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?” “After all,” he notes, “the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so.” One example, he cites, is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called,“Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.” After Reverby’s discovery, the Obama administration apparently gave an apology to then-President Alvaro Colom according to the Boston Globe. Obama called President Álvaro Colom Caballeros of Guatemala to apologize, and Obama’s spokesman told reporters the experiment was tragic, and the United States by all means apologizes to all those who were impacted by this. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had called Colom to break the news to him. In her conversation with the Guatemalan president, Clinton expressed her personal outrage and deep regret that such reprehensible research could occur, said Arturo Valenzuela, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs. The study in Guatemala was led by John Cutler, a US health service physician who also took part in the controversial Tuskegee Syphilis experiments which began in the 1930s. Said Global Research: "Washington’s reaction to the report is a farce. The apology made to Guatemalas government was for the sake of public relations. Washington knows about its human experimentations in the past with deadly diseases conducted by government-funded laboratories that are known to be harmful to the public." It went on to say the U.S. government admitted to its wrongdoing, 62 years too late. The challenge is global, and we request assistance from everywhere, including China, Japan, Australia, India, Germany, Italy, and even kind-hearted people in the U.S., France, the U.K., Russia, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and anywhere else whose desire is to help. The situation is bleaker than we on the outside can imagine, and we must provide assistance however we can. Global Research continued: "US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US," Prof. Francis Boyle said. Then he asks: "Why has the Obama administration dispatched troops to Liberia when they have no training to provide medical treatment to dying Africans? How did Zaire/Ebola get to West Africa from about 3,500km away from where it was first identified in 1976?" I have a follow-up report that is more troubling, pertaining to US complicity in biological warfare research and development.
