What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?

What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?

by Jon Rappoport

August 1, 2014


This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers (see here and here) and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.

What exactly have they been doing?

Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing?

Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?

The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.

Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons?

For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014.

These researchers are working with other institutions, one of which is USAMRIID, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, a well-known center for biowar research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

In Sierra Leone, the Tulane group has been researching new diagnostic tests for hemorrhagic fevers.

Note: Lassa Fever, Ebola, and other labels are applied to a spectrum of illness that result in hemorrhaging.

Tulane researchers have also been investigating the use of monoclonal antibodies as a treatment for these fevers—but not on-site in Africa, according to Tulane press releases.

Here are excerpts from supporting documents.

Tulane University, Oct. 12, 2012, “Dean’s Update: Update on Lassa Fever Research” (.pdf here):

“In 2009, researchers received a five-year $7,073,538 grant from the National Institute of Health to fund the continued development of detection kits for Lassa viral hemorrhagic fever.

“Since that time, much has been done to study the disease. Dr. Robert Garry, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and Dr. James Robinson, Professor of Pediatrics, have been involved in the research of Lassa fever. Together the two have recently been able to create what are called human monoclonal antibodies. After isolating the B-cells from patients that have survived the disease, they have utilized molecular cloning methods to isolate the antibodies and reproduce them in the laboratory. These antibodies have been tested on guinea pigs at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and shown to help prevent them from dying of Lassa fever…

“Most recently, a new Lassa fever ward is being constructed in Sierra Leone at the Kenema Government Hospital. When finished, it will be better equipped to assist patients affected by the disease and will hopefully help to end the spread of it.” [The Kenema Hospital is one of the centers of the Ebola outbreak.]

Here is another release from Tulane University, this one dated Oct. 18, 2007. “New Test Moves Forward to Detect Bioterrorism Threats.”

“The initial round of clinical testing has been completed for the first diagnostic test kits that will aid in bioterrorism defense against a deadly viral disease. Tulane University researchers are collaborating in the project.

“Robert Garry, professor of microbiology and immunology at Tulane University, is principal investigator in a federally funded study to develop new tests for viral hemorrhagic fevers.

“Corgenix Medical Corp., a worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, announced that the first test kits for detection of hemorrhagic fever have competed initial clinical testing in West Africa.

“The kits, developed under a $3.8 million grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health, involve work by Corgenix in collaboration with Tulane University, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, BioFactura Inc. and Autoimmune Technologies.

“Clinical reports from the studies in Sierra Leone continue to show amazing results,” says Robert Garry, professor of microbiology and immunology at the Tulane University School of Medicine and principal investigator of the grant.

“We believe this remarkable collaboration will result in detection products that will truly have a meaningful impact on the healthcare in West Africa, but will also fill a badly needed gap in the bioterrorism defense.

“…The clinical studies are being conducted at the Mano River Union Lassa Fever Network in Sierra Leone. Tulane, under contract with the World Health Organization, implements the program in the Mano River Union countries (Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea) to develop national and regional prevention and control strategies for Lassa fever and other important regional diseases.

“Clinical testing on the new recombinant technology demonstrates that our collaboration is working,” says Douglass Simpson, president of Corgenix. “We have combined the skills of different parties, resulting in development of some remarkable test kits in a surprisingly short period of time. As a group we intend to expand this program to address other important infectious agents with both clinical health issues and threat of bioterrorism such as ebola.”

power outside the matrix

The third document is found on the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation Facebook page (no login required), dated July 23 at 1:35pm. It lays out emergency measures to be taken. We find this curious statement: “Tulane University to stop Ebola testing during the current Ebola outbreak.”

Why? Are the tests issuing false results? Are they frightening the population? Have Tulane researchers done something to endanger public health?

In addition to an investigation of these matters, another probe needs to be launched into all vaccine campaigns in the Ebola Zone. For example. HPV vaccine programs have been ongoing. Vials of vaccine must be tested to discover ALL ingredients. Additionally, it’s well known that giving vaccines to people whose immune systems are already severely compromised is dangerous and deadly.

  2. Pat Beall says:

    Did you also see that Monsanto is to be given the job of making a vaccine for it – having grown it on to do tests. HELP

    • theodorewesson says:


      (with additional links below)

      …TEKMIRA Pharmaceuticals, a company working on an anti-Ebola drug, just received a $1.5 million cash infusion from none other than Monsanto. …the press release […] states “Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing novel RNAi therapeutics and providing its leading lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery technology to pharmaceutical partners.”

      The money from Monsanto is reportedly related to the company’s developed of RNAi technology used in agriculture. The deal is valued at up to $86.2 million, according to the WSJ.

      Another press release about Tekmira reveals a $140 million contract with the U.S. military for Ebola treatment drugs:

      TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office.

      Additional Tekmira partnership are listed at this Tekmira web page.

      Not to invoke any charges of collusion or conspiracy here, but a whole lot of people are going to have raised eyebrows over the fact that Monsanto just happened to be giving a cash infusion to a key pharma company working on an Ebola cure right in the middle of a highly-publicized Ebola outbreak which could create huge market demand for the drugs. The fact that the U.S. Department of Defense is also involved with all this is going to have alternative news websites digging hard for additional links.

      Sadly, the history of medicine reveals that drug companies, the CDC and the WHO have repeatedly played up the severity of disease outbreaks in order to promote sales of treatment drugs. I’m not saying this outbreak isn’t very real and very alarming, of course. It is real. But we always have to be suspicious when windfalls profits just happen to line up for certain corporations following global outbreaks of infectious disease. Vaccine manufacturers, remember, made billions off the false swine flu scare, and tens of millions of dollars in stockpiled swine flu vaccines later had to be destroyed by the governments that panicked and purchased them.

  6. shachalnur says:

    You missed a few loose ends from earlier this year.

    you can find them in a comment (shachalnur) I left on undergroundmedic.com (Dr.Liz Bennett).

    Article “International flights still operating from Conakry Airport despite Ebola risk”. (mar 31,2014)

    I don’t know how to link,you’ll have to read it yourself.

    Very possible they (SCRIPPS Research Institute, MappBio, USAMRIID) already beta-tested a “cure”.

    no surprises there,Dr.Yoshihiro Kawaoka is involved in this one as well.

    Prominent roles for Dr.Erica Ollman -Saphire (SCRIPPS) and Dr.Gene Olinger (USAMRIID).

    MappBio developed the “cure”.

    Please look at the links in the comment,they are shocking.

    • shachalnur says:

      Marilynn Marchione ,manufacturing.net “U:S: Gov’t had a role in Ebola drug given to aidworkers”.

      It’s ZMapp made by MappBio.

      I called this scenario 5 months ago,and nobody paid attention.

      This is not my field ,and I’m urgung everybody with medical knowledge,and knowledge of scientists to look at the articles I gave in the above post.

      Simply because the people involved in developing and testing this “cure” cause huge red flags with anybody who does any research behind the MSM crap.

      I read MappBio was recently bought by another company,but can’t find the name,worth it to look for the name.

      this might be no psy-op ,there’s too much money invested in cures and vaccines by very ugly people on this Ebola outbreak.

      And when it turns out it’s not a joke,it will be very late,vaccine will be forced and ZMapp”cure” only for the chosen few.

    Thanks for addressing this, Jon. I always rolled my eyes at the earlier “pandemics,” but for some reason, this Ebola roll-out feels more sinister in that — tuning into the virus — it feels genetically modified (weaponized). With all the incentive for the US gov’t to have a “pandemic” to institute martial law, and all their desire for genocide, why not kill two (or two million) birds with one stone and release an actual weaponized Ebola strain, plus do the typical media smoke and mirrors to bring in martial law? Why does it need to be either/or, when the bankers and psycho’s in charge really would prefer both/and?

    You mentioned in an earlier article about people starving in 3rd world countries having poorer immune systems than in the US. There are a lot of people starving in the US! They might look obese, but they’re extremely nutritionally deficient. Anyone who eats primarily organic food, uses discernment on where to go or not, and does general immune boosting can likely weather this storm, at least on the viral level, but that’s not a majority of Americans. I am certain this is a psyop, but I’m not certain there’s not a very real, weaponized version of Ebola in the works as part of the psyop. I rather suspect there is, so I’m glad you’re raising these questions about Tulane, et. al.

    I had blogged earlier about these possibilities, mentioning urine therapy as the body’s natural, free means of reverse engineering any illness or imbalance, and some blog commenters shared some additional tips. This is not medical advice, but in case anyone wants to research it: bitter kola nut (garcinia kola) is used in Africa to combat both AIDS and Ebola virus. Someone else mentioned an orgonite zapper. These are in addition to more general immune boosters like garlic, raw honey, “Fire Cider Remedy,” chaga mushrooms, astragalus, colloidal silver, and the absence of inflammation causing foods like GMO’s and many grains.

    Wishing the best to everyone on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. I’m all for reality creation, off grid living and giant home gardens and food forests. I’d just prefer not to witness what seems in the queue for America. Even if you survive, yuck! Ebola’s like a B-grade horror movie, all blood, screams and gore. I’m hoping your original slant that it’s a total psyop with no real threat (the usual wolf crying) is right, because my sense of this weaponized, both/and scenario looks very grim for a lot of people.

    • theodorewesson says:

      Hi Laura, when people say “weaponized Ebola strain”, does that mean an indivual (single) virus that is somehow ‘weaponized’ — meaning, i would assume, that only very, very strong immune system can stop it, or, maybe no immune system, no matter how strong can stop it?

      Note: Also, Mike Adam’s, in his “ebola composite article” — mainly of excerpts from mainstream press reports — covering everything from symptoms to martial law (see: http://www.naturalnews.com/046259_Ebola_outbreak_drug_treatments_Monsanto.html) had this:

      “Just how much Ebola virus does it take to infect someone? Alarmingly, as the Public Health Agency of Canada explains, ‘1 – 10 aerosolized organisms are sufficient to cause infection in humans.’ Read that again: it takes just ONE aerosolized organism (a microscopic virus riding on a dust particle) to cause a full-blown infection in humans. This is why one man vomiting on an international flight can infect dozens or hundreds of other people all at once. (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/lab-bio/res/psds-ftss/ebola-eng.php)”


      There are various articles from Jon on his blog in which it is mentioned (1) that to determine the exact cause of an individual’s disease, a blood work up on the person is needed, and (2) for the cause to be a germ/virus, large quanties of said germ/virus need to be present in the body AND the individual’s immmune system already needs to be low/compromised. (One way to a low immune system is eating food devoid of nutrition and laden with pesticides as you’ve mentioned (GMO and growing in soils depleted of minerals))

      There is also this:

      re: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2012/06/09/germ-theory-and-depopulation/

      “Let’s go deeper. In general, so-called contagious diseases are caused, not by germs [viruses], but by IMMUNE SYSTEMS THAT ARE TOO WEAK TO FIGHT OFF THOSE GERMS [viruses].

      “When we put the cart and the horse in proper alignment, things become clear. I fully realize this isn’t as sexy as talking about bio-engineered gene sequences in [weponized] viruses, but the cart and horse must be understood.

      “GERMS [viruses] ARE A COVER STORY.

      “What do they cover up?

      “The fact that immune systems are the more basic target for depopulation and debilitation of populations.”

      [emphasis in the original]

      So, can we say that what Jon wrote — compared to what Mike wrote, “doesn’t square”?


      Then there is also this rinkle:

      re: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2014/05/18/how-they-would-stage-a-bioterror-event/

      “…there is another strategy that should be understood:

      “The use of a germ [virus] as a cover story for a chemical.

      “In other words, there is no germ [virus] attack. It’s called a germ [virus] attack, but that’s a lie. The perps bring in researchers, to the affected area, who go on to claim they have isolated a germ [virus] that is the cause of death and illness. It’s a sham. What really happened was the spread of a toxic chemical that can’t be detected, unless you’re looking for it.

      “The chemical has severe and deadly effects for a week or two or three. Then it disperses and loses potency and the ‘epidemic’ is done.”

      My comment: pysop to insert a little bit of fear in the mind… and then ‘they’ could ‘go live’ with a chemical — against people who already have lower immune systems.


      Then, where’s the main stream and alt press asking to see the real evidence (and asking to see the fake evidence) that the symptoms are being caused by The Virus?

      It seems like many main stream and alt media outlets are just regurgitating ‘official talking points’ and not doing the heavy lifting of investigation.


      Back to the ‘full blood work up’ on an individual to determine the real causes: “No time for that. Medical doctors shall make ‘eyeball diagnosis’ only.”

      Medical diagnosis fraud: For a background on that — which ties directly in this current scare, see

      The Massive Fraud Behind HIV Tests


      So many layers of fraud!!!


      In closing,…

      “In 1987, I warned that medical propaganda ops are, in the long run, the most dangerous. They appear to be neutral. They wave no political banners. They claim to be science. For these reasons, they can accomplish the goals of overt fascism without arousing suspicion.” — Jon Rappoport


      • laurabruno says:

        Yes, I am aware of these articles and don’t take Mike Adams as gospel, by any means. I agree about immune systems. There are so many assaults on immune systems that unless you’re aware of how to keep yours healthy, it’s probably compromised. (Not you, personally, you in general.)

        i don’t know where you live, but where I live, there are some extremely stark contrasts in the general public. We’ve got a lot of Amish people eating homegrown food, riding bikes and working in the sunshine, and a fair portion of gardeners and farmers market shoppers, many of whom who radiate health. And then we’ve got huge swaths of very poor, very obese, cigarette smoking, grey skinned, GMO, processed and fast food eaters. I would lobby that these people don’t have much of an immune system either. Yes, we have clean water and sanitation in America so long as no major grid interruption happens.

        Bio-weapons do exist and do escape, whether on purpose or not. Lyme disease is a genetically modified bioweapon, if you believe many of the top Lyme doctors in talking with them off the record. Some people recover from Lyme, but it’s more lifting the immune system and the reality out of that disease frequency and effect.

        I largely agree with Jon about the psyops and that it’s more about chemicals and compromised immune systems. I just think it could be an all of the above scenario if the psychos get their way. I’m not saying they will, but I wouldn’t doubt they’re trying. We’ve got Fukushima and all manner of leaking nuclear plants and radiation compromises immune systems, GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, plastics, chemtrails and extremely poor (ridiculously poor) nutrition. To think the US couldn’t be wiped out by even a non-weaponized virus isn’t completely nuts if even one of the cards falls out of this house — grid down (even if only for a couple weeks), natural or helped along disaster, even a relatively short supply line disruption, etc. Most Americans have gotten very soft and overly reliant on things largely outside their control. I, for one, am growing a four season garden, eating garlic and tending to my immune system. I would do this anyway, Ebola or not. I still don’t like that the US gov’t has a patent on Ebola and I still wouldn’t put it past them to try to weaponize it and trigger a “real” pandemic.

        I have things on hand to detox chemicals, too. Will it eork for everything? Probably not, but it’s something. A person could drive themselves nuts worrying about this sort of thing, or you can do things you enjoy doing and derive benefits from anyway. In my case, that’s gardening, natural remedies, learning more self reliant skills and finding ways to make my little corner of the world a better place. Thanks for the additional comment.

    That fact is that IN 2007 THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT WAS GRANTED A PATENT FOR THE EBOLA VIRUS IN 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is a bio weapon straight out of the US military labs. And as a patented bio weapon you can bet with absolute certainty that the government has a vaccine and or cure for this. Wake up people! And bear this in mind if/when this is unleashed here at home on the general population.

  14. OzzieThinker says:

    I have noticed a few other comments seem to concur with this, Jon.

    Your original assessment of ebola being a potentially harmless psyop are misconstrued, in my opinion. Let us hope I am wrong, but I believe that this virus is regularly tested on African populations as the “final solution” to the “population problem” of the rest of the world.

    Thank goodness, as it is very quick working (killing off the host before finding a new one), the virus usual burns itself out. Maybe “they” have created a new strain with a longer incubation period. If so, we have a real [man made bio war] problem.

Too many fakers, I don’t believe most of the ‘tools’ will make out like the super wealthy and be able to sleep nights, hope so.

  25. Henry Gant, II says:

    From the day I heard about the Ebola outbreak in the Kissi Triangle (Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia) I knew without any doubt in my mind that it was not a natural occurrence. With the US Army highly interested in Biowarfare program like Ebola, I do strongly believe that many monkeys and other animals have been injected with the Ebola virus in those West African States. The US is to be blame for the current outbreak of the disease. I may not have evidence to proof my argument but this isn’t the first time of the Americans wickedness to both Liberians and Africans as a whole. For the Americans, Africa is a unique land suitable to carry out experiment like this. Maybe it is due to illiteracy and poverty on one hand; on other hand our so called leaders aren’t farsighted enough to know Western tricks.

    You know what they are doing, and it is evil. My guess is they plan to dump plagues all over Africa. I am so glad to see awareness there of the NWO’s evil plans. They are insane. America (and I am American) is no longer safe nor is it good. It is run by Satanists and the illuminati who are so vile that the earth wants to vomit them up out of the caverns they built with hardworking Americans’ stolem tax dollars. Continue to fight. Be brave.
