US government shipped bio-chem weapons? Absurd!

I know. History is boring. People hate it.

What happened 25 years ago? Forget it. What’s going on with Miley Cyrus? Is she still twerking?”

Nevertheless, I’ll give it a try.

Keep two twerks in mind. In 1975, the US signed on to an international treaty banning the production, use, and stockpiling of biological weapons. Ditto for chemical weapons, in 1993. Another treaty.

Here’s a twerky quote from the Washington Post (9/4/13, “When the US looked the other way on chemical weapons”): “…The administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush authorized the sale to Iraq of numerous items…including poisonous chemicals and deadly biological viruses, such as anthrax and bubonic plague…”

And now, here’s a flurry of boggling twerks…

Twerk One: Between 1985 and 1989, a US 501C3 firm, American Type Culture Collection, sent Iraq up to 70 shipments of various biowar agents, including 21 strains of anthrax.

Twerk Two: Between 1984 and 1989, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) sent Iraq at least 80 different biowar agents, including botulinum toxoid, dengue virus, and West Nile antigen and antibody.

This information on the American Type Culture Collection and the CDC comes from a report, IRAQ’S BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS PROGRAM, prepared by the Center for Nonproliferation Studies. The report contains ample reference citations.

Twerk Three: Then we have a comprehensive article by William Blum in the April 1998 Progressive called ANTHRAX EXPORT. Blum cites a 1994 Senate report confirming that, in this 1985-1989 time period, US shipments of anthrax and other biowar agents to Iraq were licensed by…drum roll, cymbal crash…the US Dept. of Commerce.

Twerk Four: Blum quotes from the Senate report: “These biological materials were not attenuated or weakened and were capable of reproduction. It was later learned that these microorganisms exported by the United States were identical to those the United Nations inspectors found and removed from the Iraqi biological warfare program.” Boom.

Twerk Five: This 1994 Senate report also indicates that the US exported to Iraq the precursors for chemwar agents, actual PLANS for chemical and biowar production facilities, and chemical-warhead filling equipment. The exports continued until at least November 28, 1989.

Twerk Six: Blum lists a few other biowar agents the US shipped to Iraq. Histoplasma Capsulatum, Brucella Melitensis, Clostridium Perfringens, Clostridium tetani–as well as E. coli, various genetic materials, human and bacterial DNA.

The Matrix Revealed

Twerk Seven (the cover-up): Blum also points out that a 1994 Pentagon report dismissed any connection between all these biowar agents and Gulf War Illness. But the researcher who headed up that study, Joshua Lederberg, was actually a director of the US firm that had provided the most biowar material to Iraq in the 1980s: the American Type Culture Collection.

Twerk Eight (one hand washes the other): Newsday revealed that the CEO of the American Type Culture Collection was a member of the US Dept. of Commerce’s Technical Advisory Committee. See, the Dept. of Commerce had to license and approve all those exports of biowar agents carried out by the American Type Culture Collection. Get the picture?

Now, as to other US companies which dealt biowar or chemwar agents to Iraq–all such sales having been okayed by the US government–the names of these companies are contained in records of the 1992 Senate hearings, “United States export policy toward Iraq prior to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait”:

Twerk Nine (the names of US criminal companies): Mouse Master (Georgia), Sullaire Corp (Charlotte, North Carolina), Pure Aire (Charlotte, North Carolina), Posi Seal (Conn.), Union Carbide (Conn.), Evapco (Maryland), BDM Corp (Virginia), Spectra Physics (Calif.).

There are about a dozen more.

Twerk Ten (dept. of mind-boggling excuses): Hewlett Packard said that the recipient of its shipments, Saad 16, was some sort of school in Iraq. But in 1990, the Wall St. Journal stated that Saad 16 was a “heavily fortified, state-of-the-art [Iraqi] complex for aircraft construction, missile design, and, almost certainly, nuclear-weapons research.”

Twerk Eleven: There has been a considerable debate about whether Saddam hid some of his bio/chem weapons in Syria, to evade UN weapons inspectors. If he did, then is it possible the current situation in Syria has a few of its roots in the US? Is it possible some of Syria’s WMDs originally came from America?

One thing is certain. A US government investigation isn’t going look into that possibility.

  1. Colin says:

    Snowden had help. You’re analysis is correct…the difference is that AMERICA has to go down. Russian/Chinese intelligence race equal fewer freedoms for the world. In four months nothing substantial has happened. Control grid is all…everyone wants what is advertised! And the PARADE/CHARADE will be a new message, especially with Saudi Arabia slowly changing sides. Global Conflict INTO Global Government. How did this happen?

  2. I love your concise history lessons, … and the target for those weaponized germs was originally Iran. Below is a link to a similar (if less concise) expose of the transfer of nuclear weapons materials and technology from the US to Israel.

    On a much lighter note: You finally got your “elite news anchor” wish Jon, even if it isn’t quite perfect! Russel Brand, the 38 year old comedian, actor, author, and radio host, has a go at the elite news anchor Jeremy Paxman right on the BBC and very much as you have fantasized (“Don’t Vote!”). I certainly didn’t find this in the US media, nor on the BBC news, so here is the link through Russia Today to YouTube.

    The difference in their voices and demeanor is fascinating to watch, yet even this strange disparity of robot and human gets made into theatre for entertainment consumption as catharsis for a passive audience. That reminds me of George Carlin (RIP) who channeled you quite well at times himself (or do you channel him at times?). So much for politically correct.

    Why did the BBC set this up? Brand’s socialist meme gives it away. As always, this fun bit of theatre sets up the divide and conquer strategy that will use revolutionary chaos of the fascists against the socialists against the communists (WWII repeat of NAZI vs Soviet vs …) to justify the New World Order of Perfect Peace and Harmony. Time to watch the recent TV series “V” again to see propaganda and false flag done right.

    The masses will get the socialist utopia they will be sold as their salvation while the rest will get their fascist state of security and control to keep the masses out of their swimming pools and tennis courts, as well as drugged and/or at work until the robots get up to speed. Who says we can’t “have it all” at the same time through the technological magic of the Artificially Intelligent Global Brain? As always, many doors to choose from that all lead to the same prison cell. What a nightmare!

    I must have had too much absinthe with dinner in my waking life.

  3. During the Kissinger/Ford administration, the U.S. made a deal with the Shah of Iran to train Iranian nuclear engineers in the development of uranium enrichment and other techniques of nuclear development in exchange for cash. The deal involved MIT.
