CAIRO, Egypt —http://www.mcclatchydc.com/iran/story/80348.html An award-winning Iranian nuclear scientist traveled to Saudi Arabia earlier this year to perform a religious pilgrimage. He never returned. Shahram Amiri’s mysterious disappearance is turning into a Middle Eastern whodunit involving nuclear secrets and political intrigue, with a new round of accusations emerging this week and the U.S. government still refusing to comment.

There are two big questions: Was Amiri spirited away by Saudi-backed American covert agents? Or did the scientist seize the chance to defect to the West, offering sensitive information in exchange for asylum?

Add Timothy Hampton to the List of Dead Scientists in The New World Order. 

A British nuclear expert who fell from the 17th floor of a United Nations building did not commit suicide and may have been hurled to his death, says a doctor who carried out a second post-mortem examination.  Timothy Hampton, 47, a scientist involved in monitoring nuclear activity, was found dead last week at the bottom of a stairwell in Vienna….  Under a year ago, an American died at the IAEA in strikingly similar circumstances, his body being found at the bottom of a stairwell.

 An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick’s infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for, Army officials said yesterday, raising concerns that officials wouldn’t know whether dangerous toxins were missing.   http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/17/AR2009061703271.html

You got to be shitting me, right?  No.

The probe began in February 2009,  just months before Swine Flu A/H1N1 came to the public eye and a Pandemic Status issued earlier this month.  Coincidence?

When the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center at Fort Detrick is fully operational in March[ sic 2009], about 150 scientists in the lab will be tasked with protecting the country from a bioterrorist attack through prevention or containment. Another goal is to allow investigators to fingerprint biological agents such as viruses and bacteria, quickly tracing their source and catching the offender. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/22/AR2008102203082.html?sid=ST2009061703604

Visit Ft. Detrick on line , http://www.detrick.army.mil/ whose motto is,  “We Care.”  Apparently not enough to care about locking down the world’s worst viruses where they have their own threat status currently at :

FPCON ALPHA

Applies when there is an increased general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel or facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable.

Unpredictable?  Who would have predicted loosing track of up to 9,000 vials of who knows what kind of viruses? 

Among them the Ebola virus, anthrax bacteria and botulinum toxin, and less lethal agents such as Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus and the bacterium that causes tularemia. Most of them, forgotten inside freezer drawers, hadn’t been used in years or even decades. Officials said some serum samples from hemorrhagic fever patients dated to the Korean War. The overstock and the previous inaccuracy of the database raised the possibility that someone could have taken a sample outside the lab with no way for officials to know something was missing. http://cotocrew.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/msm-inventory-uncovers-9200-more-pathogens/

Several FredCoBio companies won funding to support product development activities with Ft.  Detrick scientists according to- http://fredcobio.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/ft-detrick-tech-transfer-funds/.  Considering most tests are with virulent pathogens we would hope that stricter security is in place.  With Obama on the heels of computerizing all health records, just maybe he can order someone to keep track of little things like viruses who research is paid for with our tax dollars.

After Fort Detrick anthrax researcher Bruce E. Ivins killed himself in July, the FBI announced that he alone was responsible for anthrax mailings that killed five people and sickened 17 others in 2001. 

Dr. Ayaad Assaad an Egyptian-born toxicologist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the original suspect does not believe Ivins killed himself. ” You also have to tie into this the large numbers of dead microbiologists that have appeared since around the summer before these events, when the New York Times revealed the existence of the covert anthrax weapons programs run by the CIA, and that too is in the public record.” http://noworldsystem.com/2008/09/14/original-anthrax-patsy-says-ivins-didn%e2%80%99t-kill-himself/

Dead Microbiologists include: [http://www.rense.com/general39/death.htm]

Dr. Benito Que, a cell biologist working on infectious diseases like HIV, who was found comatose outside his laboratory at the Miami Medical School. He later died. Police say the attack was possibly the result of a mugging.” 

Dr. Wiley, A Harvard biologist and  expert on how the human immune system fights off infections and had recently investigated such dangerous viruses as AIDS, Ebola, herpes and influenza .  His body was found after  more than a month since his rental car was left parked on a bridge over the Mississippi River at  hydro-electric plant in Louisiana 300 miles downstream.

Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, a former microbiologist for Biopreparat, the Soviet biological-weapons production facility was found dead.

Dr. Robert M. Schwartz was found murdered in Leesberg, Virginia. Dr. Schwartz was a well-known DNA sequencing researcher. He founded the Virginia Biotechnology Association where he worked on DNA sequencing.

The head of the microbiology sub-faculty of the Russian State Medical University, Victor Korshunov has been killed.

Dr. Tanya Holzmayer, a pioneering Russian born genomic scientist who had co-invented a tool that has helped find hundreds of molecular targets to combat cancer and HIV was found shot dead by a  former colleague .

David Wynn-Williams, an award-winning microbiologist died when he was struck by a vehicle while out jogging. In 2000 he was appointed leader of the Antarctic Astrobiology Project, which explores the effects of environmental stress at the limits of life on Earth

Are these scientists a patsy in a larger cover up? A time line of 46 mysterious deaths of scientists continues here http://www.stevequayle.com/dead_scientists/dead.scientists.chron.html and 86 dead scientists listed here http://theoneall.blogspot.com/2009/05/now-88-dead-scientists-and.html

It is not only microbiologists who are dying in extraordinary circumstances.  On June 13, 2009 the carcass of Indian famous nuclear scientist Lokanathan Mahalingam found from Kali River. The scientist had been mysteriously disappeared from the Kaiga Atomic Power Station on June 8, 2009. The Kaiga plant is located near one of the biggest naval bases, Project Seabird. http://pakistanfront.blogspot.com/2009/06/abducted-indian-nuke-scientist-found.html

“Lack of oversight and runaway spending are exacerbated by the Bush administration’s disrespect for the internationally-recognized Biological Weapons Convention. In short, reduced pressure on weapons labs to issue declarations and allow inspections means less accountability – and more opportunities for secrecy and abuse.” http://www.heatherwokusch.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=67  

Indeed, does it take a genius to put two-and-two together?

Human beings have been both fascinated and appalled by randomness. On the one hand, we love the thrill of a surprise party, the unpredictability of a  romance, the freedom of not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We abhor uncertainty’s dark side.  Terrorists attacks and accidents happen.  We never know if we’ll be that one in a million statistic to hit the lottery, get struck by lightening or contract some mutated virus like A/H1N1 Swine Flu.

If you live the the U.S. statistically it appears you have a better chance of catching H1N1 than in the other 74 countries the virus has been reported in.  According to  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124464616272602341.html#mod=rss_US_News  “Nearly half of the world’s confirmed swine flu cases, or 13,217, are in the U.S.”  The CDC has the numbers at about 14,000 confirmed or probable cases of swine flu. Overall, a small percentage of the population unless you are one of the 27 Americans who got the flu and died. http://www.cdc.gov/ The numbers are expected to rise as the CDC will updates it statistics tomorrow.

“On the basis of available evidence, the scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic has been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of pandemic alert from phase 5 to phase 6, the world is now at the start of the pandemic,” Margaret Chan said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/12/content_11528799.htm  The start?  In the U.S., a public health emergency was declared April 26,2009. 

The World Health Organization http://www.who.int/en/  would have been negligent had they not made  it official, declaring a Phase 6 alert in response to the H1N1 swine flu virus .  Phase 6 is the WHO’s highest alert level and indicates an influenza pandemic is under way. 

This H1N1 variant is going after people with healthy immune systems.   It is spreading geographically and is unusual, continuing to spread during the start of summer in the northern hemisphere when normally flu viruses die off with warm weather.  H1N1 is proving to be a resilient little bugger.

Scienceblogs argues http://scienceblogs.com/effectmeasure/2009/06/swine_flu_lets_scrap_the_pande.php “Instead of revamping the alert system, WHO should consider scrapping it in favor of an up-to-date information system,” relying on globalization of information from the Internet.   Pretty ironic seeing as the WHOIS data base has not been updated for ’09. The author assumes that countries would actually be forthright and we know that Mexico waited weeks to tell the world.  “Suddenly, a whole village got sick somewhere, or young and healthy people fell ill”, said Larath Gollogly, a spokesperson at WHO in Geneva. http://genevalunch.com/2009/06/11/who-declares-phase-6-pandemic-in-ah1n1/  Suddenly! 

Andrew Rambaut of the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and colleagues estimated the timescale of the development of the epidemic. They determined it was derived from several swine viruses and the initial transmission to humans occurred several months before recognition of the outbreak. “Despite widespread influenza surveillance in humans, the lack of systematic swine surveillance allowed for the undetected persistence and evolution of this potentially pandemic strain for many years,” the researchers said. The original article in Nature is available here as a PDF here http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vnfv/ncurrent/pdf/nature08182.pdf 

 

 

 

“The unsampled history of the epidemic means that the nature and location of the genetically closest swine viruses reveal little about the immediate origin of the epidemic, despite the fact that we included a panel of closely related and previously unpublished swine influenza isolates.”

 

 

In upping the designation to the highest level 6 the U.N. agency has covered it’s ass and reiterated what all the research points to, that “The virus is not stoppable,” she {sic Chan}  said. “I would advise them to maintain vigilance, enhance surveillance and be prepared for the arrival of the novel H1N1 in their country.”

Yes, we all want countries to be prepared as possible to contain the virus but, WHO has hasn’t ruled out that H1N1 could turn into a more virulent strain or affect different populations differently. Chan by stating that this is the start of the pandemic, issues a huge warning and again brings up the conspiracy that this H1N1 mutation may be man made, may be a race-specific bio-weapon and, at least according to experts at The Institute of Evolutionary Biology- they do not know its origin.    

“Genetic weapons capable of wiping out specific ethnic groups are no longer the stuff of science fiction, military and scientific advisers with the British and American governments have admitted,” states the report from  A 1999 UK Sunday Herald piece  http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4156/is_19990509/ai_n13937769/  The article, New Weapons of Ethnic Cleansing says, “Technology is now far enough advanced to give even small nations the ability to create so called “G-Bombs”, ethnically-targeted biological missiles with warheads tipped with plague or anthrax, designed to eliminate entire racial groups.”  Could a “G-Bomb” be inserted into a vaccine?

The report issued 10 years ago by the British Medical Association said that race-specific bio-weapons would be ready within 5 years- , “enabling governments to target victims solely on their genetic make-up.”  If you add together a number of different markers for different populations you can start to be specific to a target population,” said Nathanson.  Once a markers is identified, a virus could be designed to look for them on entering the body. It would scan the DNA of cells looking for markers and if it found them it would insert itself into the host DNA and start the process of infection.”

” G-bombs would use genetic markers specific only to particular races to trigger the virus – anyone without the genetic marker would be unaffected. Scientists could manipulate the structure of the plague virus to attack only a person who had a race-specific DNA code. One race- specific trait determined by genes is the body’s reaction to lactose. Asians and Europeans have different DNA markers determining lactose reaction. This kind of knowledge could be used to construct a virus which only attacks Asians, and could lead to a scenario where a plague- laced bomb dropped on a city would wipe out the entire Asian community but leave every white person alive.”  Is H1N1 a virus capable of scanning DNA cells looking for markers to start the process of infection?

“Advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool,” stated the September 2000 Rebuilding America’s Defenses report at http://www.newamericancentury.org/RebuildingAmericasDefenses.pdf  released by the Project For A New American Century.  Who defines what race is no longer useful is apocalyptic to the entire human race.

The 1972 Biological Weapons Convention is supposed to prohibit offensive research, but there is little doubt that there is black box biodefense research going on not only the U.S., but by other countries as well. The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on Their Destruction, also known as the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention or BWC, prohibits the development, production, stockpiling and acquisition of these weapons. The BWC thus supplements the prohibition on use of biological weapons contained in the 1925 Geneva Protocol.http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~hsp/biologic.html

Project Jefferson, was a covert 2001 U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency program designed to determine if the current anthrax vaccine was effective against genetically engineered-modified bacteria. After the program’s existence was revealed by the New York Times in 2001, the Pentagon announced that it intended to complete the project and that the results would be classified. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Jefferson 

Project Bacchus was a covert investigation by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency US Defense Department to determine whether it is possible to construct a bioweapons production facility with off-the-shelf equipment. In the two-year simulation, the facility was constructed, and production of anthrax-like bacterium was successfully completed. The participating scientists were able to produce about one kilogram of highly-refined bacterial particles.  The bacteria were milled to particle sizes of 1-5 microns with machinery bought on the open market in the US. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn1449 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Bacchus.

Project Clear Vision was a covert investigation of Soviet-built biological bomblets conducted by the Battelle Memorial Institute under contract with the CIA. Projects Jefferson, Bacchus and Clear Vision were the focus of the 2001 book Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War http://www.amazon.com/Germs-Biological-Weapons-Americas-Secret/dp/0684871580

H1N1 does not know borders and to date we are unclear of its origin.  The U.S. has pretty good sanitation and living standards, yet the highest numbers of cases so you would think the odds so far are in your favor.  Nope- the virus is more contagious than seasonal flu the Geneva-based WHO says.  In seasonal flu, each person who comes in contact with someone who’s sick has a 5 percent to 15 percent probability of illness, according to a statement posted the WHO’s Web site. In swine flu, the probability increased to 22 percent to 33 percent.

The World Bank in October noted that a “moderate” pandemic like the 1957 Asian flu could kill 14.2 million people and shave 2 percent from the global economy in the first year.  The odds are they will loose more than a few customers.
