Aids is made in US military labs! Anti-humanity conspiracy
BY: Syed Ahmed Ali Zaidi
Living will agree that the world has stepped out of the nuclear age, only to step into a new age-the age of biological warfare. The conspiracy against humanity began when at a House Appropriations hearing in 1969, the Defense Department's Biological Warfare division requested funds to develop, through gene splicing, a new disease that would resist and break down a victim's immune system.
In the fall of 1986 the Russians shocked the world by claiming that AIDS originated as a result of U.S. germ warfare. Although this accusation quickly disappeared with Glasnost, the idea that AIDS is a man-made disease continues to be a common belief among Africans, Americans, as well as conspiracy theorists. According to a New York Times poll (October 29, 1990), thirty percent of New York City blacks actually believe AIDS is an ethno-specific biological weapon designed in a laboratory to kill black people.
The idea that AIDS is a man-made disease is the theme of books such as, AIDS & The Doctors of Death (1988) and Queer Blood (1993) by Dr. Alan Cantwell; Emerging Viruses (1996) by Dr. Leonard Horowitz; AIDS Tabu (1992, in Swedish) by Kwame Ingemar Ljungqvist, and others:

These studies have been largely overlooked and ignored by the mainstream media and medical journals.
Creation of a Super Germ and Ethnic Biological weapons As evidence that HIV could be a man-made virus, researchers cite testimony dating back to 1969 when Dr. Donald MacArthur, a Department of Defense spokesman, appeared before a U.S. Congressional Hearing on Chemical and Biological Warfare and declared that biological warfare experts could develop a genetically engineered "super germ" that would be able to effectively destroy the human immune system. He estimated that molecular biologists could create this new infective microorganism within 5 to 10 years. [REF: Testimony delivered in Washington before a Subcommittee on Appropriations, House of Representatives, Department of Defense Appropriations for 1970, on July 1, 1969.]
A decade later, in 1979, the first AIDS cases were reported to the CDC in Atlanta, Georgia. In a scientific paper entitled "Ethnic Weapons," which appeared in the November 1970 issue of The Military Review, Swedish geneticist Carl A. Larsen openly discussed biotechnologic advances that would allow human cells to be "selectively quenched." Scientists had already detected enzymatic differences in the composition of cells from various racial and ethnic groups, and theorized how these differences could be exploited to create biological weapons. Recent studies indicate HIV is a particularly dangerous virus for certain racial groups. In 1997 Stephen O'Brien and Michael Dean reported on "AIDS-resistance genes" that enable European and Americana-Caucasians to better resist HIV. Other ethnic groups, such as African -Americans and East Asians have much less resistance. And black Africans have absolutely no protective genes against the AIDS virus. [REF: O'Brien SJ, Dean M: In search of AIDS-resistance genes. Scientific American, September 1997, pp 28-35.]
Vaccine Programs and the Outbreak of HIV
Some researchers believe HIV was "introduced" into African blacks through the World Health Organization's (WHO) smallpox eradication program in the late 1970s. In Magic Shots, Allan Chase writes that during the years 1966-1977, the WHO utilized 200,000 people in forty countries-most of them non-doctors and spent $300 million to vaccinate people with 2.4 billion doses of smallpox vaccine. [REF: Chase A: Magic Shots. New York: William Morrow and Company, 1982.]
On May 11, 1987, The London Times, one of the world's most respected newspapers, published a front-page story entitled "Smallpox vaccine triggered AIDS virus." The story suggested that African AIDS was a direct outgrowth of the WHO smallpox eradication program. Robert Gallo, the world's foremost AIDS researcher, was quoted as saying: "The link between the WHO program and the epidemic is an interesting, and important, hypothesis. I cannot say that it actually happened, but I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV."
Despite the importance of these allegations, the smallpox story was killed and never appeared in any major U.S. newspaper or magazine. The Origin of the Green Monkey Theory Until recently, the African green monkey theory of AIDS origin (as proposed by Robert Gallo) has been accepted as fact. In his book, Virus Hunting:AIDS, Cancer and the Human Retrovirus (1991), Gallo explains the source of his theory. "Amazingly, in the early part of my research on AIDS (early 1983) I was visited by Ann Guiduci Fettner, a freelance writer who told me emphatically that the origins and epicenter of the epidemic were in a river basin near Lake Victoria. She also stated she believed the virus came from African green monkeys, apparently due to her experiences in central Africa." [REF: Gallo R: Virus Hunting: AIDS, Cancer and the Human Retrovirus. New York: Basic Books, 1991.]
Fettner, along with microbiologist William Check, authored The Truth About AIDS, one of the first books published on the epidemic. According to notes on the book jacket, Fettner had served as health advisor to the government of Kenya. However, in their book, published shortly before Gallo's discovery of HIV in 1984, nothing is recorded about Fettner's experiences in Africa.
Green monkeys are never mentioned, and there is no suggestion that AIDS originated in Africa. On the contrary, Fettner and Check conclude that "AIDS started as an American disease." [REF: Fettner AG, Check W: The Truth About AIDS. New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1984.] Blaming Africa for American AIDS To prove that AIDS is not an old disease in Africa, a team of scientists led by J.W. Carswell tested the blood of old, inactive people living in geriatric homes in Kampala, Uganda's largest city and the epicenter of AIDS in Africa. The elderly people's blood was tested against 716 healthy, active adults living in the same city. Fifteen percent of the healthy people were positive for HIV antibodies, but none of the elderly people tested positive. This 1986 study indicated HIV had not been in Uganda for a long time, as AIDS experts were proclaiming. The team concluded: "The results presented here do not support the previous suggestions that the virus might have originated in Uganda; on the contrary, if interpreted correctly, they indicate it arrived in the country only recently." [REF: Carswell JW, Sewankambo N, Lloyd D, et al: How long has the AIDS virus been in Uganda? Lancet 1, May 24, 1986, p 1217.]
Some scientists have proclaimed that HIV has existed in Africa for decades, centuries, or even millennia. In 1989 another scientific team investigated HIV antibodies infection among the semi-nomadic San bush people living in the Central Kalahari Desert in Botswana. The Sans are the oldest race living in Africa. The team tested 150 San adults. No one tested positive for HIV. [Ebbesen P, Osie W, Morgan ET: San people (Bushmen) from the Central Kalahari Desert found free of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2. [REF: Journal of the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome 2: 415-416, 1989.]
Biological warfare and Covert Experimentation
Sadly, the U.S. government and its scientists have a well-documented history of secret experimentation on humans, particularly minorities. Physicians and scientists allied to biological warfare research are sworn to secrecy and silence. In the U.S. "top secret" and classified medical experimentation continues to be promoted by the CIA, the CDC, the Department of Defense, the military, and by leading medical institutions.
In A Higher Form of Killing (1982), Robert Harris and Jeremy Paxman expose many of these medical abuses perpetrated against unsuspecting civilians by the U.S. military and the CIA during the 1950s and 1960s. The authors write: "In August 1977 the CIA admitted to no less than 149 subprojects, including experiments to determine the effects of different drugs on human behavior; work on lie-detectors, hypnosis and electric shock; and the surreptitious delivery of drug-related materials. Forty-four colleges and universities have been involved; fifteen research foundations, twelve hospitals and clinics, and three penal institutions."
Human Radiation Experiments and Government Abuse
With the release of classified documents by President Bill Clinton, details have been revealed about unethical and inhumane radiation experiments conducted during the Cold War years between 1944 and 1974. Over 4,000 covert experiments conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission, the Department of Defense, the Department of Health Education and Welfare, the Public Health Service (now the CDC), the National Institutes of Health, the Veterans Administration, the CIA and NASA, are documented in The Human Radiation Experiments: The Final Report of the President's Advisory Committee, published in 1996 by Oxford Press.
Some of these inhumane and previously classified experiments include: The secret injections of 18 Americans with plutonium, one of the most toxic radioactive substances known to man, during the years 1945-1947. Exposing more than 100 Alaskan villagers to radioactive iodine during the 1950s.
Feeding 49 retarded and institutionalized teen-agers radioactive iron and calcium in their cereal during the years 1946-1954. Exposing about 800 expectant women in the late 1940s to radioactive iron. Injecting 7 newborns (six were black) with radioactive iodine. Exposing almost 200 cancer patients to high levels of radiation. The AEC finally stopped this experiment in 1974. Administering massive doses of full body radiation to cancer patients hospitalized at the General Hospital in Cincinnati, Baylor College in Houston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York City, and the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda, during the 1950s and 1960s.
Secret Science and Medical Research
To this day there are no adequate safeguards to protect people from covert government experimentation. Since the mid-1970s we have witnessed the spectacular rise of genetic engineering and molecular biology, as well as the concomitant outbreak of new infectious diseases of obscure origin. Diseases such as AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, the "Four Corners" lung disease first discovered on Navajo land, and the emergence of dozens of unprecedented viruses and diseases never before seen on the planet.
Biological warfare programs are now inextricably linked to governments and political agendas. By law, scientists employed in these classified programs cannot speak freely or reveal secrets. By necessity, these scientists must promote the government's disinformation and propaganda programs. It is well-documented that African Americans have been mistreated in the Medical science has a long history of medical experimentation and cover-up, and even murder. And the development and testing of designer "super germs" for biological warfare purposes is not a paranoid fantasy. There is circumstantial evidence pointing to AIDS as a man-made disease. Ignoring this research will not make the idea go away. On the contrary, ignoring this research makes a mockery of medical science as a field of open and honest inquiry. Thinking needs to be injected in the veins on the puppet humans who have accepted their worst enemies as their masters.
