Microbiologists With Link to Race-Based Weapon Turning Up Dead

Microbiologists With Link to Race-Based Weapon Turning Up Dead
American Free Press
By Gordon Thomas

Dr. David Kelly—the biological warfare weapons specialist at the heart of the continuing political crisis for the British government—had links to three other top microbiologists whose deaths have left unanswered questions.

The 59-year-old British scientist was involved with ultra secret work at Israel’s Institute for Biological Re search. Israeli sources claim Kelly met institute scientists several times in London in the past two years.

Israel has not signed the Biological Weapons and Toxins Convention, an international treaty ratified by more than 140 countries. It forbids the development, possession and use of offensive biological and chemical weapons.

The CIA, FBI and MI5 are now examining Kelly’s connections. Their findings could form part of the British government’s inquiry into the background of Kelly’s death, which opened last week.

The intelligence investigation is believed to have originated in Washington, where it emerged that Kelly had contacts with two companies in the U.S. bio-defense industry.

One of the men he was in touch with was a former Russian defector, Kamovtjan Alibekov. When he arrived in America, he changed his name to Ken Alibek. He is now president of Hadron Advanced Biosystems—a company specializing in medicines against biological terrorist attacks. Kelly was himself considering resigning from his senior post at the Ministry of Defense to work in America. Before his death, he had been discreetly headhunted by two companies. One was Hadron Advanced Biosystems, which has close ties to the Pentagon.

Hadron describes itself as “a company specializing in the development of technical solutions for the U.S. intelligence community.” Hadron also has links to William Patrick, who has five classified patents on the process of developing weaponized anthrax. He is a biowarfare consultant to both the Pentagon and the CIA.

The other company is Regma Biotechnologies—one that Kelly helped its founder, Vladimir Pasechnik, to set up in Britain, arranging for it to have a laboratory at Porton Down, the country’s chem-bio warfare defense establishment.

Regma currently has a contract with the U.S. Navy for “the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of anthrax.”

Kelly had told family friends he wanted to go to America so that he could obtain the specialized treatment his wife, Janice, requires. “He also felt that working in the U.S. private sector would relieve him of the intense pressures which came with his government work,” said a colleague in the Ministry of Defense.

The two American scientists he had worked with were Benito Que, 52, and Don Wiley, 57. Both microbiologists had been engaged in DNA sequencing that could provide “a genetic marker based on genetic profiling.” The research could play an important role in developing weaponized pathogens to hit selected groups of humans—identifying them by race. Two years ago, both men were found dead, in circumstances never fully explained.

In November 2001, Que left his laboratory after receiving a telephone call. Shortly afterward he was found comatose in the parking lot of the Miami Medical School. He died without regaining consciousness.

Police said he had suffered a heart attack. His family insisted he had been in perfect health and claimed four men attacked him. But, later, oddly, the family inquest returned a verdict of death by natural causes.

Many questions remain about Que’s death:

Who was the mystery caller who sent Que hurrying from his lab hours before he was scheduled to leave? What attempts did the police make to track the four mystery men—after admitting Que was the “probable” victim of an attempt to steal his car? What were his links to the U.S. Department of Defense? What happened to his sensitive research into DNA sequencing? How close were his connections to Kelly?

A few days after Que died, Wiley disappeared off a bridge spanning the Mississippi River. He had just left a banquet for fellow researchers in Memphis.

Weeks later, Wiley’s body was found 300 miles down river. As with Que, his family said he was in perfect health. There was no autopsy. The local medical examiner returned a verdict of accidental death. It was suggested he had a dizzy spell and fell off the bridge.

Again, there remain many unanswered questions concerning Wiley’s demise:

Why did Wiley park his car on the bridge? Why did he leave the keys in the ignition and his lights on? Why was Wiley’s car facing in the opposite direction from his father’s house, which was only a short distance away? What happened to his research into DNA sequencing? How close were his connections to Kelly?

Kelly, himself an expert on DNA sequencing when he was head of microbiology at Porton Down, had been kept fully abreast of the two men’s research.

The death of a third microbiologist—Vladimir Pasechnik, 64—has left even more questions.

Kelly had played a key role in debriefing Pasechnik when he fled to Britain in 1989, bringing with him details of Russian plans to use cruise missiles to spread smallpox and plague, the Black Death of medieval times, which killed a third of Europe’s population. Before the plans could be brought to completion, the Soviet Union had collapsed. Pasechnik had warned Kelly and his MI6 debriefers that the weapons could be used by terror groups—using missiles obtained from China or North Korea.

Kelly, with government approval, had helped Pasechnik create Regma Biotechnologies. Regma was allowed to set up a laboratory in Porton Down.

Research there is classified as top secret. However, in August 2002, the company obtained a contract with the U.S. Navy for “the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of anthrax.”

On Nov. 16, 2001, Pasechnik was found dead in bed—10 days after he and Wiley had met in Boston to discuss the latest developments in DNA sequencing.

It was only a month later that Christopher Davis, a former MI6 officer and a specialist in DNA sequencing as a potential weapon, announced Pasechnik’s death.

Davis had retired from MI6 and settled in Great Falls, Va. He confirmed to a reporter that Pasechnik was dead—from a stroke—a month after the microbiologist had been buried.

Details of the postmortem were not revealed at an inquest, in which the press was given no prior notice. Colleagues who had worked with Pasechnik said he was in good health.

Why was it left to Davis to announce Pasechnik’s death? Who authorized the announcement? Did an MI6 pathologist conduct the autopsy, as one source close to the service claims? Why did Pasechnik continue to visit Porton Down up to a week before his death? Who authorized his security clearance to enter one of the most restricted establishments in Britain?

Kelly’s links to the Institute of Biological Research in the Tel Aviv suburb of Nes Zions are also intriguing.

His connection to the secret biological plant began in October 2001, shortly after a commercial flight en route from Israel to Novosibirsk in Siberia was blown up over the Black Sea by a Ukrainian surface-to-air missile.

All on board the flight were killed, including five Russian microbiologists returning to their research institute in Novosibirsk—a city known as the scientific capital of Siberia. It has 50 facilities and 13 universities.

Many questions remain about the death of these five scientists. Why did Mossad send a team to Ukraine to investigate the crash? What became of their report after it was submitted to the Israeli government? Why do the Ukrainian authorities still insist they cannot reveal the name of the dead microbiologists? Did Pasechnik know them—or, more importantly, did Kelly?

The Institute for Biological Research is one of the most secret places in Israel. Only Dimona, the country’s nuclear facility in the Negev desert, is surrounded by more secrecy. Most of the institute’s 12 acres of facilities are underground. Laboratories are only reached through airlocks.

There have been persistent reports that the institute is also engaged in DNA sequencing research. One former member of the Knesset, Dedi Zucker, caused a storm in the Israeli Parliament when he claimed that the institute was “trying to create an ethnic specific weapon” in which Arabs could be targeted by Israeli weapons.

Google a Credit Card Number

Google queries provide stolen credit cards

CNET - Simple queries using the Google search engine can turn up a handful of sites that have posted credit card information to the Web, CNET learned on Tuesday.

More ...

It took a little while, many dead-ends and lots of useless information by enthusiastic but misguided, 12-year-olds, who were talking tough on non-entity bulletin boards, but I did finally manage to track down some real information.

While relieved it wasn't my own, I did feel sorry for the 'old-dear' whose full details were posted for the entire world to ogle, as part of a sample of the type of data available for sale. The information was forwarded to the credit card company.

Favourite quote from all of the digging about

"Meanwhile, this thread (and all the requests for credit-card numbers that I subsequently deleted), is further proof that there are far too many stupid people on the Internet. I sincerely hope that none of them manage to breed."

Encephalitis lethargica, sarcoidosis, multiple sclerosis and pleomorphic bacteria (cell wall-defective bacteria)

Encephalitis lethargica

BBC - Health - Encephalitis lethargica is a mysterious disease that was the subject of the film Awakenings, starring Robin Williams and Robert De Niro. People with encephalitis lethargica may develop fever, headache, weakness and other symptoms, which can lead to a prolonged state of unconsciousness or to Parkinson's disease. But the cause remains a mystery.

Between about 1917 and 1928 a puzzling illness appeared and swept around the world. Doctors called it encephalitis lethargica, which simply meant 'inflammation of the brain that makes you tired'. Younger people, especially women, seemed to be more vulnerable but the disease affected people of all ages.

Hundreds of thousands of people were struck down and many survivors were left to battle difficult symptoms for years. Some thought it was caused by a virus, some confused it with the epidemic of Spanish flu at that time while others blamed weapons used in World War I. But even now, more than 80 years later, scientists are uncertain what causes the condition.

More ...

Now being implicated, or at least flagged, as a possible cause of encephalitis lethargica, is a strain of streptococcus, as a likely trigger for the ensuing autoimmune response where the brain becomes inflammed, through some unknown mechanism.

Which is very interesting if you are into that sort of thing.

Due to the range of autoimmune diseases which attack the CNS (Central Nervous System), not least, multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disorder or indeed, does it hold the key to the as yet undetermined cause of Parkinson's Disease?

There has been some suggestions of cell wall-defective variants of well known bacteria such as E.Coli, initiating and fuelling the inflammatory processes in autoimmune disorders such as sarcoidosis; however, the road is a rocky one and a skeptical scientific community is still trying to pin down the significance of these pleomorphic bacteria, although some slow progress is being made.

Porn Blogs

Porn Blogs Manipulate Google

Wired News - When Google bought blogging software pioneer Blogger last year, it probably didn't expect that its new technology would be used to goose the page rankings of porn sites.

Hardly a new technique.

I must research this much more fully in order that I can give a more accurate and indepth appraisal.

Free Home Test for Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Pilot study of a free home test kit for sexually transmitted diseases

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have launched the first government-sponsored study to measure the effectiveness of a Web- and community-based home test kit for common sexually transmitted diseases, such as Chlamydia and gonorrhea.

The study will measure how many women make use of the kit, determine disease prevalence among respondents, record how effectively test results can be returned to the participants, and assess how well respondents who test positive follow through with therapy.

I imagine the response will be overwhelming. 500 kits to start with ... well, 499, {cough}

Northern Ireland's suicide epidemic claims young lovers as two more of its victims

Independent - Experts say the Northern Ireland suicide rate is the highest in the UK.
The most up-to-date figures ­ for 2001 ­ show the rate is 26 deaths per 100,000 of population for young males. This compared with a UK-wide figure of 15 deaths per 100,000. The male suicide rate was 21 per 100,000, compared to 19 per 100,000 across the UK. In north Belfast, between 11 and 13 suicides were recorded within a few months earlier this year.
There were 5,910 suicides and undetermined deaths recorded in the UK in 2001, of which 132 were in Northern Ireland. The majority of those taking their lives are young males, but authorities say they are also concerned about suicides among the older population.

My advice?
If it is women troubles and you are a man, wait a week and it will blow over, you will feel better.
If it is man troubles and you are a woman, wait a month and it will blow over, you will feel better.

Demons from the past?
Face them and move on.

Did you know your diet may be contributing to depression and suicide ideation?
When you get depressed, your body systems get knocked haywire and out of sync. The bottom line is that your digestive system, maintained by an area of the brain called the hypothalamus, does not work properly and your body fills with free radicals when you eat.

Heavy fats will deepen your depression, as will anything which requires a lot of digestion.

You wanna feel better?
Avoid high-fat foods and instead eat fish for the fish oils, especially Omega-3 (look for this on tins), eat fresh veggies and take a multivitamin. You will begin to feel better within a few days.
