- BOSTON -- Shocking government documents, reprinted in a new book by a
leading public health authority, reveal that the AIDS and Ebola viruses
did not likely originate from African monkeys left alone in the wild. Instead,
Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a Harvard graduate, and independent investigator,
concludes that the viruses, that now threaten humanity's survival, most
likely evolved from early cancer virus experiments in which top military-pharmaceutical
scientists infected monkeys with viral genes from other animals. Such contaminated
monkeys were then used to develop viral vaccines tested on humans simultaneously
in New York City and Central Africa. The first researcher to meticulously
document this "man-made theory" on AIDS's origin, Dr. Horowitz
stunned a large audience at the XI International Conference on AIDS in
July, when he presented a scientific summary report of his investigation.
- As documented in Dr. Horowitz's book,
"Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola -- Nature, Accident or Intentional?"
(Tetrahedron, Inc., 1996; $29.95), during the 1960s, National Cancer Institute(NCI)
researchers, working in collaboration with military scientists, investigated
and developed viruses as potential cancer triggers. Using monkeys and other
animals, the investigators induced an array of illnesses now commonly linked
to AIDS including leukemia, lymphoma, sarcoma, immune system suppression,
and general wasting. Documented records show the leukemia/sarcoma/lymphoma
cancer complex, never seen in humans prior to 1978, had been the primary
focus of a highly funded, yet largely secret, "Special Virus Cancer
Program." By analyzing formerly classified documents, and NCI/government
contracts showing how, when, where, and why such viruses were made, Dr.
Horowitz's 563 page treatise concludes that the AIDS virus likely broke
out as a result of contaminated polio and hepatitis B vaccine experiments.
Those implicated include top AIDS researchers, biological weapons contractors,
and institutions who, the published documents show, developed and tested
such immune-system-ravaging agents for the NCI and Department of Defense
(DOD) during the late 1960s.
- "Most people believe AIDS came from
African monkeys," Dr. Horowitz explained. "What the authorities,
and therefore the media, never broadcast was what was done to the monkeys
to create numerous AIDS-like and Ebola-like viruses in those early years
of cancer research."
- Monkeys, contaminated with assorted immune-system-destroying
cancer viruses, were used to develop both polio and hepatitis vaccines.
The hepatitis vaccine was administered virtually simultaneously to special
populations in New York City, and Central Africa during the early 1970s.
The recipients were people who had been previously exposed to polio vaccine
delivered monkey viruses. This, Dr. Horowitz said, might best explain the
sudden appearance of new virus forms and AIDS cases in these areas in 1978.
Additional support for this theory came from Dr. Gerald Myers, chief of
a special AIDS project of the U.S. Government's Los Alamos Laboratory,
who observed a "Big Bang" -- the simultaneous emergence of numerous
types of HIV around the world by 1975.
- Dr. Horowitz's text also presents stunning
admissions by top monkey virus experts and vaccine analysts including the
world's leading vaccine developer, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, of Merck, Sharp
and Dohme. The Merck pharmaceutical company was the government's principle
military vaccine producer during most of the cold war when their president,
George W. Merck, directed America's biological weapons industry. Hilleman,
during a taped interview on file at the National Library of Medicine, acknowledged
his role in importing contaminated green monkeys, from facilities in Central
Africa, into the United States for research and vaccine production. "I
brought (the) African greens in," Hilleman said during a 1986 interview
originally recorded, but never aired, by WGBH, Boston's famed public television
station. "I didn't know we were importing AIDS virus at the time."
- The contaminated monkeys apparently came
from another documented biological weapons contractor -- Litton Bionetics,
Dr. Horowitz explained. "Litton was the chief NCI contractor for primate
supplies and maintained laboratory operations and monkey colonies in Uganda
- Outraged AIDS activists, scientists,
and public interest groups nationwide are calling for an independent congressional
investigation into Dr. Horowitz's published facts. Several authorities
are now urging analyses of suspected vaccine lots, believed to be held
by the FDA, including Dr. W. John Martin, former director of the Viral
Oncology Branch of the FDA's Bureau of Biologics, the government's principal
agency in charge of testing human vaccines. Dr. Martin, who wrote the foreword
- Dr. Horowitz's book, stated "the
issue of possible simian virus contamination of certain live viral vaccines
has been suppressed since 1972... This basic flaw in the regulatory process
must be addressed."
