AIDS As Biological & Psychological Warfare
by Waves Forrest
Despite repeated denials from Defense Department officials,
allegations persist that AIDS is a genetically altered virus,
which has been deliberately released to wipe out homosexuals
and/or non-whites in the U.S. and reduce populations in third
At first glance it seems like the epitome of paranoia to accuse
the military of conspiring to exterminate citizens of their own
country, and even some of their own troops. However, the vast
majority of military personnel could be completely unaware of
such a plot in their midst, while a relative handful of traitors
in key positions could conduct it under cover of classified
operations. And the circumstantial evidence is actually quite
compelling, that the AIDS virus was artificially engineered, and
planted in several different locations at about the same time
through vaccination programs, and possibly blood bank
At a House Appropriations hearing in 1969, the Defense
Department's Biological Warfare (BW) division requested funds to
develop through gene-splicing a new disease that would both
resist and break down a victim's immune system. "Within the next
5 to 10 years it would probably be possible to make a new
infective micro-organism which could differ in certain important
respects from any known disease-causing organisms. Most
important of these is that it might be refractory to the
immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to
maintain our relative freedom from infectious diseases." (See -
A Higher Form of Killing: The Secret Story of Chemical and
Biological Warfare by R. Harris and J. Paxman, p 266, Hill and
Wang, pubs.) The funds were approved.
AIDS appeared within the requested time frame, and has the exact
In 1972, the World Health Organization published a similar
proposal: "An attempt should be made to ascertain whether viruses
can in fact exert selective effects on immune function, e.g.,
by ...affecting T cell function as opposed to B cell function.
The possibility should also be looked into that the immune
response to the virus itself may be impaired if the infecting
virus damages more or less selectively the cells responding to
the viral antigens." (Bulletin of the W.H.O., vol. 47, p 257-
274.) This is a clinical description of the function of the AIDS
The incidence of AIDS infections in Africa coincides exactly with
the locations of the W.H.O. smallpox vaccination program in the
mid-1970's (London Times, May 11, 1987). Some 14,000 Haitians
then on UN secondment to Central Africa were also vaccinated in
this campaign. Personnel actually conducting the vaccinations
may have been completely unaware that the vaccine was anything
other than what they were told.
A striking feature of AIDS is that it's ethno-selective. The
rate of infection is twice as high among Blacks, Latinos and
Native Americans as among whites, with death coming two to three
times as swiftly. And over 80% of the children with AIDS and 90%
of infants born with it are among these minorities. "Ethnic
weapons" that would strike certain racial groups more heavily
than others have been a long-standing U.S. Army BW objective.
(Harris and Paxman, p 265)
Under the current U.S. administration biological warfare research
spending has increased 500 percent, primarily in the area of
genetic engineering of new disease organisms.
The "discovery" of the AIDS virus (HTLV3) was announced by Dr.
Robert Gallo at the National Cancer Institute, which is on the
grounds of Fort Detrick, Maryland, a primary U.S. Army biological
warfare research facility. Actually, the AIDS virus looks and
acts much more like a cross between a bovine leukemial virus and
a sheep visna (brain-rot) virus, cultured in a human cell cul
ture, than any virus of the HTLV group.
The closest thing in this case to a "smoking test tube" so far is
the AIDS virus itself. If it was possible for such a monstrosity
to occur naturally it would have done so ages ago and decimated
mankind at that time. Some other life form would presently be in
control of this planet (assuming that is not already the case).
The Hepatitis B vaccine study in 1978 appears to have been the
initial means of planting the infection in New York City. The
test protocol specified non-monogamous males only, and
homosexuals received a different vaccine from heterosexuals. At
least 25-50% of the first reported New York AIDS cases in 1981
had received the Hepatitis B test vaccine in 1978. By 1984, 64%
of the vaccine recipients had AIDS, and the figures on the
current infection rate for the participants of that study are
held by the U.S. Department of Justice, and "unavailable."
The AIDS epidemic emerged full-blown in the three U.S. cities
with "organized gay communities" before being reported elsewhere,
including Haiti or Africa, so it is epidemiologically impossible
for either of those countries to be the origin point for the U.S.
Another indication AIDS had multiple origin points is that the
14-month doubling time of the disease cannot nearly account for
the current number of cases if we assume only a small number of
initial infections starting in the late 1970s.
Before dismissing the possibility that a U.S. Army BW facility
would participate in genocide, bear in mind that hundreds of top
Nazis were imported into key positions in the U.S. military-
intelligence establishment following WW II. U.S. military
priorities were then re-oriented from defeating Nazis to
"defeating" communism at any cost, and strengthening military
control of economic and foreign policy decisions (See - Project
Paperclip by Clarence Lasby, Atheneum 214, NY, and Gehlen: Spy of
the Century by E.H. Cookridge, Random House.) There's no proof
those Nazis ever gave up their long-term goals of conquest and
genocide, just because they changed countries. Fascism was and
is an international phenomenon.
It's not as if this was total reversal of previous U.S. military
policy, however. Hitler claimed to have gotten his inspiration
for the "final solution" from the extermination of Native
Americans in the U.S. For that matter the first example of germ
warfare in the U.S. was in 1763 when some of the European
colonists gave friendly Indians a number of blankets that had
been infected with smallpox, causing many deaths.
One indication of the actual U.S. military priorities regarding
BW was the importation of the entire Japanese germ warfare unit
(#731) following WW II. These people killed over 3000 POWs,
including many Americans, in a variety of grisly experiments, yet
they were granted complete amnesty and given American military
positions in exchange for sharing their research findings with
their U.S. Army counterparts.
Consider also the callous attitude displayed by top military
officials toward veterans suffering from the after-effects of
exposure to Agent Orange and radiation from nuclear weapons
In fact, since the end of WW II over 200 experimental BW tests
have been conducted on civilians and military personnel in the
U.S. One example was the test spraying from Sept. 20-26, 1950 of
bacillus globigi and syraceus maracezens over 117 square miles of
the San Francisco area, causing pneumonia-like infections in many
of the residents. The family of one elderly man who died in the
test sued the government, but lost. To this day, syraceus is a
leading cause of death among the elderly in the San Francisco
area. Another case was the joint Army-CIA BW test in 1955, still
classified, in which an undisclosed bacteria was released in the
Tampa Bay region of Florida, causing a dramatic increase in
whooping cough infections, including twelve deaths. A third
example was the July 7-10, 1966 release of bacteria throughout
the New York subway system, conducted by the U.S. Army's Special
Operations Division. Due to the vast number of people exposed it
would virtually impossible to identify, let alone prove, and
specific health problems resulting directly from this test.
Despite the loyalty of the vast majority of U.S. military
personnel toward their country, there are clearly some military
officials who have very different intentions, and they occupy
high enough positions to impose their priorities on military
programs and get away with it, so far.
The first detailed charges regarding AIDS as a BW weapon were
published in the Patriot newspaper in New Delhi, India, on July
4, 1984. It is hard to say where the investigations of this
story in the Indian press might have led, if they had not been
sidetracked by two major domestic disasters shortly thereafter:
the assassination of Indira Gandhi on Oct. 31 and the Bhopal
Union Carbide plant "accident" that killed several thousand and
injured over 200,000 on Dec. 3.
The Soviet press picked up the story on October 1985, making it
easy for U.S. Defense Department spokesmen to dismiss the charges
as "Soviet propaganda," even though many other countries carried
it. The Soviets recently retracted the charges, in the new
spirit of US-USSR cooperation.
A variation on the AIDS-BW theory that is popular in far-right
publications is that AIDS was developed in Soviet laboratories
for use against the U.S. An obvious problem with this idea is
that the victims of choice of a Soviet BW attack would be anti-
communists, not minorities or homosexuals, who are generally more
left-wing. The people at greatest risk from AIDS in the U.S. are
in fact the very elements most disliked by arch-conservatives.
In any case, it is simplistic to assume that one country, U.S. or
USSR, is conducting this campaign against one another. Although
concealed in apparent conflicts between nations, the real
culprits are multi-national fascists on both "sides" still bent
on massive population reductions and global domination.
Other motives include the old "divide and conquer" principle;
AIDS is inspiring fear and mistrust between people, and scaring
them away from relating to each other at the basic level of
sexuality. It is acting as a barrier to the attempted cultural
resurgence toward peace, love and cooperation. Of high school
students surveyed last year as to which decade they'd most like
to have grown up in, 90% chose the 60's. The last thing pro-war
fascists want is another "love generation," especially if it is
more politically sophisticated than the last one.
Apparently, homosexuals were an initial target in the U.S.
because their sexual practices would help in the rapid spread of
the disease, and because it was correctly assumed that very few
non-homosexual citizens would pay much attention during the early
years of the epidemic. Also, the stigma of a "homosexual
disease" would interfere with rational analysis and discussion of
AIDS. Bear in mind that homosexuals were among the first to be
exterminated in Nazi Germany, before Jews or other minorities, so
fewer citizens would object.
The details of precisely how the AIDS virus was synthesized, mass
cultured, and spread by incorporating into vaccination programs
are available but fairly intricate. It is beyond the scope of
this report to present a crash course in virology, epidemiology,
genetic engineering, and the military strategies of international
fascism. Readers are encouraged to obtain and study the
references cited here, and demand a full inquiry. Those
officials who are actually involved in the coverup will reveal it
by their inaction when pressed to investigate.
Evil is hard to confront, especially on the preposterous scale we
have here. If you acknowledge the presence of those who think
their only hope for survival is to kill off two thirds of all the
other kinds, and their ability to manage it, you then pretty much
have to do something about it.
