Anthrax Mailings Expert Tells NPR the FBI's Case Evidences a "Genocidal Conspiracy"
Columbia, MO--National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate KBIA is broadcasting expert analysis that the FBI's investigation of the mailings, and their case against Army scientist Bruce E. Ivins, reflects an American "genocide" directed by foreign pharmaceutical interests engaging the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Global Journalist, a program hosted by Prof. Stuart H. Loory, Chair in Free-Press Studies at the Missouri School of Journalism, is broadcasting determinations by leading anthrax mailings investigator, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, that CIA contractors working for certain drug industrialists were responsible for developing and deploying the powdered anthrax mailed to generate bioterror, publicity, and political pressure profiting the drug cartel, mainly through the stockpiling of risky CIPRO and deadly anthrax vaccines.
The conspiracy and serial homicide that killed five, with thousands more poisoned by CIPRO and the Congressionally-condemned anthrax vaccine, "generated nearly a billion dollars in sales for pharmaceutical industrialists," Dr. Horowitz said. (Listen online here: http://www.globaljournalist.org/radio/2008/08/07/ ) He explained that CIA contractors at the Battelle Memorial Institute developed the bioweapon and studied its lethality when mailed under a top secret project the CIA called "Clearvision." Pentagon officials code-named the West Jefferson, Ohio bioweapon program "Project Jefferson."
Brooks Tigner, Europe Defense Technology Editor for Jane's International Defense Review, reported that confidence in American government overseas has significantly eroded under the Bush administrations prior to this fracas involving the FBI and CIA. Responding to concerns about the genocide described by Dr. Horowitz, Mr. Tigner urged an investigation of the US Bioshield Program engaging the immensely profitable stockpiling of CIPRO and anthrax vaccines.
Justice Department assertions were reported from the nation's capital by Lara Jakes Jordan of The Associated Press. She concluded the FBI's case is "essentially closed," and could not confirm or deny the assertions of the other panelists. When asked whether The Associated Press had ever investigated a drug-industry directed "genocidal conspiracy" Ms. Jordan stated she was not aware of any such inquiries.
Ms. Jordan stated that the mentally-disturbed medically-controlled Army scientist, Ivins, had co-patented the military's anthrax vaccine.
In essence, the unstable officer financially gained from the vaccine's sale, government stockpiling, and marketing through the use of bioterrorism. His instability might have compromised the entire conspiracy; posing a reasonable motive for his "suicide."
A February, 2000 Congressional Report concluded the anthrax vaccine was unsafe for any use due to deplorable manufacturing and safety conditions at the vaccine's sole U.S. manufacturer, Bioport, LLC. Yet, the company was able to license the formula despite expert testimony the vaccine was a co-factor in triggering Gulf War Syndrome. The company's prospectus was reportedly found in a cave among Osama bin Laden's possessions during the Afghanistan invasion. Military acquisitions were heavily lobbied by Adm. William J. Crowe, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and ambassador to the United Kingdom from 1994-1997. Crowe owned 22.5 percent of Bioport, LLC, and there is some evidence the seed stock for the Ames, Iowa strain of anthrax used by Ivins and the mailers came from Britain's biowarfare facility at Porton Down.
Only the CIA's contractors at Battelle in Ohio had clearance to the advanced technology needed to engineer and test the hyper-concentrated, super-weaponized, silica-sensitized, electro-magnetized anthrax that was mailed according to Dr. Horowitz's extensive investigation.
Given the evidence of a genocidal conspiracy and coverup, all panelists agreed the FBI's termination of the case is premature and suspect; that additional investigations are necessary to assure public safety and restore confidence in the Justice Department.
