A vial containing less than 1 milliliter of mustard agent is prepared for analysis

The Umatilla Chemical Depot in Oregon has had yet another leak of a chemical mustard agent. 

You should need no reminder that it was Saddam Hussein’s regime that used a mustard agent against the Kurds in Iraq.  The United States, who, at the time- 1988, were allies of Iraq in their war with Iran, turned a blind eye to the atrocity and said the images could not be verified to be the responsibility of Iraq.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halabja_poison_gas_attack.  Could it have been none other than Donald Rumsfeld as Reagan’s envoy who turned a blind eye? For more on. “Halabja, the massacre the West tried to ignore.”  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/iraq/article6991512.ece  January 18, 2010.

The Chemical Demilitarization Program’s mission is defined, “To protect people and the environment by overseeing the safe destruction of the chemical agents at the Umatilla Chemical Depot as soon as possible.”  http://www.deq.state.or.us/Umatilla/cdp.htm  “As soon as possible?”  Safe? For more than ten years there have been admitted exposures, leaks, and spills at Umatilla.  

The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (UMCDF) is headed by the U.S. Army Program Manager for Chemical Demilitarization (PMCD) and is operated under contract by Washington (formerly Raytheon) Demilitarization Company. Washington is responsible for the construction and operation of the UMCDF. Along with UMCD, both PMCD and Washington Demilitarization Company (WDC) are Permittees named in the UMCDF Hazardous Waste Permit. http://www.deq.state.or.us/Umatilla/cdp.htm

The chemical warfare agents VX and GB (nerve agents) and HD (blister, or “mustard” agent) are stored as liquid in various types of munitions and containers, including rockets, bombs, projectiles, mines, bulk containers, and aerial spray tanks. The chemical weapons stored at the UMCD represent approximately 12% of the United States’ original chemical weapons stockpile.


Located near  Hermiston, Oregon, “The facility had stopped work in late October because vats of mustard agent were boiling over. Now depot officials say they think they’ve fixed that issue.” http://news.opb.org/article/6598-umatilla-chemical-depot-resumes-burning-mustard-agent/ 

They were wrong. The official press release is at http://www.csepp.net/pressreleases/10Releases/10Jan27_nr%20trace%20of%20mustard%20chemical%20agent%20detected%20today-27Dec2010-1.pdf.

On January 27, 2010, thinking things were in order, via http://www.tri-cityherald.com/yahoonews/story/879396.html  another leak of blister agent was discovered.   Workers at the Umatilla Chemical Depot yesterday found another mustard agent leak in one of its igloo storage units, the sixth such leak detected at the Oregon facility in three months.

Umatilla generally experiences more leaks in the summer, when containers holding the deadly blister agent tend to thaw. The igloos where the mustard containers are stored are fitted with air filters that prevent any dangerous fumes from escaping.  Yesterday’s leak did not threaten the surrounding public or environment, according to depot officials.

Yes, of course everything is contained, we are so reassured!  If they know in advance that Umatilla generally experiences more leaks when it is warm, why wouldn’t The Washington Demilitarization Company, which is really URS, which is really Black Stone turn on the air conditioning in the storage areas? A passive filtration system- but no climate control?  The storage units are underground. Could they potentially be leaking into an aquifer that occupies a roughly rectangular area of 19,728 acres?

Raytheon holds a patent http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/6516008/description.html  for a wavelength conversion system that uses lasers to detect mustard gas but can not be bothered with figured out a better way to prevent these leak incidents?  There are also connections from The Center of Public Integrity linking Washington Group International’s leadership roster to read like a Who’s Who of the government contracting business. http://projects.publicintegrity.org/wow/bio.aspx?act=pro&ddlC=65

Other leaks are reported on Dec 16, 2009 http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20091216_8107.php and six more in 2009 at http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20090728_8099.php

The U.S. Military put a spin on the hazards of reducing chemical stockpiles in this article just days after the Umatilla incident, “ U.S. gains momentum destroying chemical weapon stockpiles.” on February 2, 2010 http://www.army.mil/-news/2010/02/04/33978-us-gains-momentum-destroying-chemical-weapon-stockpiles/

The U.S. arsenal — which used to include 31,500 tons of chemical weapons such as Sarin, VX and Mustard agents– is systematically being destroyed at an increased pace, Mahall said.

“It is a tremendous success story. Not only is the U.S doing all it can to meet its international commitments, but more importantly the Chemical Materials Agency is contributing to the national security of the United States in the process. These weapons in the wrong hands can do harm. They are safely and securely storing and destroying them while providing maximum protection to the public and environment,” said Carmen Spencer, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army (Elimination of Chemical Weapons).

“As of 26 January, 2010, the U.S. has destroyed a 22,322 tons of the original 31,500 tons,” said Greg Mahall, chief of Public Affairs for the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA)….In addition to the weapons stored on Johnston Atoll in the Pacific, chemical weapons stockpiles were dispersed among eight locations within in the continental U.S. at Army facilities in Anniston, Ala., Pine Bluff, Ark., Tooele, Utah, Umatilla, Ore., Aberdeen, Md., Newport, Ind., Blue Grass, Ky., and Pueblo, Colo.

A tremendous success story? Who manufactured 31,500 tons of chemical weapons in the first place?

A Umatilla Chemical Depot employee stands in front of a storage igloo. Safely stored inside this igloo are munitions containing the nerve agent sarin. Storage igloos are built with cement and steel rebar. The igloos are then covered with dirt, keeping the inside temperature at 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit year round, helping to maintain safe storage conditions

It was not inadvertent that he military failed to mention the leaks at Umatilla, or that they forgot completely about a mustard leak at  U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot in November 2009.    http://www.cma.army.mil/fndocumentviewer.aspx?docid=003681816  Nor did they mention the numerous lawsuits that have been filed in attempts to stop burning mustard gas. http://www.whistleblower.org/template/page.cfm?page_id=164

Nor did they mention the working conditions where, “URS EG&G — the contractor in charge of incinerating chemical weapons — appears ready to settle a long-running dispute over payment for putting on and removing safety gear, and irregular meal and rest breaks.” http://www.nwlaborpress.org/2009/1120/11-20-09IUOE.html

Nor did they mention the Wall Street Journal article from July 30, 2000,  Arms Plant Workers Contend Army Covered Up Gas Leaks. http://www.nytimes.com/2000/07/30/us/arms-plant-workers-contend-army-covered-up-gas-leaks.html?pagewanted=1

A group of workers who were overcome last year by fumes at a chemical weapons plant in Oregon is accusing the Army of covering up leaks of highly toxic nerve agents and mustard gas on the day of the incident.  Lawyers for the workers at the Umatilla Chemical Depot charge that investigators from the Army and Raytheon, a defense contractor, concealed four leaks of sarin and mustard gas that occurred just hours after 34 workers became ill on Sept. 15.

The lawyers, citing Army documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, also said chemical agents had leaked at the site 22 times during a six-day period, including the day the workers were sickened. The depot is near Hermiston, in eastern Oregon.

After ten years of a checkered past, The Umatilla Disposal Facility is finally about to undergo some critical evaluations.

“Beginning next week, staff from the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA) will be on the installation to conduct a Site Assistance Visit (SAV). The intent of the SAV, conducted at the request of the depot commander, is to provide an independent review and assessment of all or a portion of the chemical surety program, and to provide assistance in interpreting surety requirements and correcting problem areas. via http://www.cma.army.mil/fndocumentviewer.aspx?docid=003682334

The Army is sending staff?  Wonder if  that includes deputy assistant Secretary of the Army, Carmen Spencer? 

We’re all for creating a safer tomorrow, it’s another Mustard leak today that we worry about.

Is fear from the economic crisis, the flu, and disasters causing an Apocalypse, to what proportion?  Is God to Blame?  Can we blame science?  Are the earthquakes like the 6 magnitude quake near Mexico City yesterday coincedental? Is capitalizing on crisis a means to build on a totalitarian global state?  Is the Swine Flu just a red flag warning of the coming New World Order? 

Global Research writes, “The events are following the same path as the Great Depression in 1929-1933: a financial crisis, an economic recession, social conflicts, establishing totalitarian dictatorships, inciting a war to concentrate power, and capital in the hands of a narrow circle. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=13311

Rahm Emanuel warned that crisis will give the Obama administration powers to make change that have never been seen before. WSJ video here http://online.wsj.com/video/rahm-emanuel-on-the-opportunities-of-crisis/3F6B9880-D1FD-492B-9A3D-70DBE8EB9E97.html  America’s population has already witnessed signifcant changes to our military(Active Duty US Soldiers on U.S. soil in case of Martial Law), legal system (O sees fault in the Constituion), electronic control (Rockefeller working on legislation to limit internet) Health Care (changes to abortion and stem cell research laws) Banks (now Nationalized) Industry (Bailouts to GM) to name a few incidents that are indicative of large scale government control. “Conflicts across the globe and an international respect for Barack Obama have created the perfect setting for establishment of “a New World Order,” according to Henry Kissinger. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=85442

The World Health Organization raised its pandemic alert level over the deadly swine flu virus to a phase 4, on a scale of 6 noting that the infection could spread between humans to cause community level outbreaks.  This latest outbreak of swine flu appears to combine bird, swine and human viruses in a way that hasn’t been seen before. 

The WHO said closing the borders would not do any good, “containment of the outbreak is not feasible. The current focus should be on mitigation measures”. Had the earthquake hit Mexico City and it’s population of over 20 million, can you imagine the large influx of illegal immigrants entering America and border chaos.  Closing the border would also mean travel, food and trade resitrictions regulated by our government.  We already have some resitrictions with The Department of Immigration to keep a watchful eye and CODEX to oversee our food supply.  Throw in the Department of Homeland Security, who title is abhorent in and of itself alluding to gestapo tacticks and we see more and more, conpiracies than you can shake a stick at.  Lest you forget, it was Texas Gov. Rick Perry who forged a deal with Cintra-Zachry consortium for the first portion of what the 4,000-mile network of quarter-mile-wide transportation corridors from Mexico and across Texas where many of the Swine Flu outbreaks in the US  have been id. http://www.infowars.com/articles/nwo/tx_gov_leads_superhighway_rally.htm

The Bilderberg Club, famous for hosting secretive meetings each year with the world’s highest ranking and most powerful officials, is scheduled to have the 2009 meetings from May 14th to 16th, reports the newspaper Elefterios Tipos.  Are the chief aims of  elaborate, semisecret organization like this, The Illuminati, Skull & Bones, The Bank for International Settlements in Basle -BIS, and others commendable or are we standing in line for a sodomized ride? An article subtitled, “The World is a step closer to a global currenty , backed by a global central bank, running monetary politcy” is reviewed nicely at http://fromthewilderness.wordpress.com/2009/04/18/the-tower-of-basel-secretive-plans-for-the-issuing-of-a-global-currency/#comment-262.  Could the Truth Movement be warning of the truth?  http://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2009/04/23/illuminati-controlled-msm-versus-the-truth-movement/#comment-2083

Adolf  Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party was once been dismissed as an extremist fringe by the mainstream conservatives. From  Hitler to  The Japanese to The CIA’s;  Project MK Ultra, MKNaomi, Operation Paperclip, Project Artichoke, Project Bluebird, Project Chatter have performed human experimentation.  Pharmacetical companies cross mutate DNA strains everyday.  In the process of eliminating Polio and searching to eradicate other infectious diseases what else could big Pharma have created?

Jannette Adu-Bobie, an expert on meningococcal vaccines, contracted meningitis while working in NZ govt. Wellington lab. and had both legs, left arm and the digits of her right hand amputated.  New Zealand has been producing chemical, biological and germ warefare weapons of mass destruction since at least the end of WWII. One of the well-documented cases is the manufacture of substantial quantities of the deadly defoliant Agent Orange between 1960 and 1987, which was subsequently used for the destruction of Vietnamese forests and mass murder of the North Vietnamese.  http://newzeelend.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/was-dr-adu-bobie-a-victim-of-biological-warfare-experiments/

 Here in The U.S. we see so many soldiers coming back from Iraq sick.  Dennis Kucinich stated the fact that 67% of babies born to returning Gulf War I veterans had deformities and/or severe illnesses which can be directly traced back to the Depleted Uranium contamination of the father which he received in Iraq or Kuwait”  http://www.cuttingedge.org/NEWS/n1965.cfm

Natural Solutions Foundation alerted the world to startling evidence that H5N1 virus may already have been genetically engineered, resulting in the potential for a man-made pandemic. Since Natural Solutions Foundation first used the phrase “Weaponized Avian Flu” on its www.HealthFreedomUSA.org Internet site, on July 19, 2008.  going further to say, “ that possibly “rogue” government operatives in concert with pharmaceutical interests, may be setting the stage for the unleashing of a genetically engineered Avian Flu pandemic-for-profit. http://mmsmiracle.wordpress.com/2008/08/21/internet-abuzz-avian-flu-weaponized/

Last year, US Based Baxter pharma accidentally sent vaccines to labs around the world containing a mix of live avian flu virus. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/

Rense.com says, “This new flu is a lab created advanced biological warfare DNA genetically engineered virus that either: (1) Escaped accidentally from a lab; or (2) was deliberately released by a nation or non-state organization or a well-trained individual at http://www.rense.com/general85/BIO.HTM   stating ” This event is an advanced biological warfare event.”

Wheter it is a major false flag terrorist operation, a dirty bomb, human error, a freak of nature, or God himself, one thing is for sure- The Flu is spreading.
