by news agencies through the world.
- Introduction For The Clarification
- For months the two authors of this report
have been at odds regarding issues concerning Larry Harris. However, due
to a chance meeting in Daytona Beach, Florida at the Global Sciences Conference,
on Sunday night, February 22, 1998, the authors had a frank and broad reaching
discussion of the issues raised in each of our earlier written reports.
This discussion involved input from over a dozen participants at the
Global Sciences Conference. As a result of this discussion and a mutual
attempt to resolve issues and find common ground, we were able to uncover
additional facts which should enlighten those seeking a more complete understanding
of the true enemy Mr. Harris faces. This information bridges the gap between
the supporters of Len Horowitz and those of Larry Harris who have thus
far been at odds, so that we can all work together in greater harmony against
a common enemy.
- As part of our intention to act in good
faith toward a resolution of these conflicts, it was agreed that both sides
of these issues would supply new information believed to be accurate and
that each side would place its credibility on the table with respect to
the accuracy and verifiability of the facts contained herein.
- Further, it was learned during the meeting
that when Larry Harris would do a media interview, faxes questioning the
credibility of Larry Harris would be sent which purportedly originated
from Dr. Horowitz. Dr. Horowitz was unaware of any such faxes. The Harris
supporters had originally believed that these faxes were actually sent
by Dr. Horowitz, and believed as well that Dr. Horowitz had a large intelligence
network at his disposal in an attempt to discredit Larry Harris. Attempts
are currently underway to determine the source of these faxes that may
show CIA involvement in efforts to use Dr. Horowitz to discredit Larry
- Background Of The Original Document
- Since mid-1997, two papers posted on
Dr. Horowitz's Internet site (tetrahedron.org_"Research, News and
Views Page"_ FTP Public Access files) predicted that, at the right
time, Larry Harris might be used by U.S. intelligence agencies for propaganda
purposes in the realm of biological terrorism. This prediction was based
on several facts as detailed below. It is currently our contention that
Mr. Harris was set up by agents for the CIA in an effort to instill fear
of a biological attack in the minds of the public; thus supporting the
propaganda arm of the Clinton administration, in favor of Gulf war efforts.
The authors agree that Mr. Harris has been operating in good faith, and
if his activities have been manipulated by agents of the CIA, then Mr.
Harris is most likely unaware of this.
- Dr. Horowitz's prediction of Larry Harris's
use by American intelligence for propaganda came true on Feb. 18, 1998
with his false arrest by the FBI for suspected possession of anthrax.
The prediction by Leonard Horowitz was based on a number of factors. The
first was that Mr. Harris previously worked as a biological warfare researcher
for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).1 Second, Mr. Harris had made
statements regarding knowledge of a terrorist organization that was threatening
to deploy biological weapons, such as anthrax and bubonic plague, against
the American people. Third, Harris clearly stated and warned against the
threat of biological terrorism against the U.S. These statements were
highly consistent with U.S. propaganda campaigns that had already been
initiated by official propaganda sources. Fourth, Harris had claimed expertise
in the area of in biological weapons.2 Fifth, Harris was previously arrested
in connection with obtaining bubonic plague microorganisms.3 Sixth, Mr.
Harris believed that there was a threat from Iraqi nationals bringing biological
weapons into this country rather than the belief held by Dr. Horowitz that
the CIA was directly linked to the production and illegal use of biological
weapons (BW).4 Finally, Mr. Harris had provided specific details regarding
the manufacture and distribution of biochemical weapons through his lectures
- It was this last fact that largely generated
concern on Dr. Horowitz's part. Mr. Harris's supporters, however, concluded
that this knowledge was already in the hands of terrorist organizations,
and Mr. Harris was distributing this information in an effort to inform
the American people of the ease with which these weapons could be created
- It was logical to conclude that Larry
Harris could be easily used by the propaganda arm of American intelligence.
However, as was discussed, had it not been Larry Harris delivering this
information, the CIA was likely to have broadcast this information in some
other way and/or substituted another person to deliver its messages, in
furtherance of it's purposes.
- Headline News and the Need for Biological
- On Feb. 19, 1998 the news media announced
that Larry Harris, along with another microbiologist, William "Job"
Leavitt, had been arrested on the afternoon of Wednesday, February 18.
The charge was suspected possession of deadly anthrax spores.
- Both Dr. Horowitz and the supporters
of Mr. Harris immediately recognized the use of this story as a propaganda
ploy. The headlines in USA Today for example, was released simultaneously
with the headline "Last chance for diplomacy?" All participants
in the debate concluded that this was no coincidence.The fact that Larry
Harris was setup and arrested at the most critical moment in U.N./Iraqi
diplomatic efforts--when U.S. propaganda against Sadam Hussein peaked--on
the eve of Secretary General Kofi Annan's final diplomatic effort for peace
and when American anxiety regarding "imminent" war and resulting
threats of biological terrorism in the U.S. peaked.
- Largely overlooked was the fact that:
1) production and use of BW by any country was a violation of the standing
Geneva Accord; 2) American corporations have been a principal Iraqi supplier
of BW along with the reagents and culture mediums required to produce them;
3) President Clinton had been advised that such massively destructive agents
can be inexpensively cultured in any large kitchen today; 4) and the hardware
used to produce these "weapons of mass destruction" can be easily
moved within hours of an impending inspection. In light of the futility
of periodic U.N./American inspections of Iraqi facilities something was
clearly amiss. Clearly, to make the American people support the U.S. war
effort, intelligence and counterintelligence activities would be required.
- Moreover, following the Ohio State "Town
Hall Meeting" two days earlier, it became painfully obvious to the
Clinton administration that Americans, if not the world, needed additional
persuasion to endorse the bombing of Iraq. To secure public support for
the futile if not senseless inspections, and/or military attacks in Iraq,
both Dr. Horowitz and the supporters of Larry Harris recognized that the
CIA turned to the propaganda use and exploitation of Mr. Harris.
- Previous and Current Events
- Precedent exists for such a conspiracy
theory. Recall that on the eve of the Bush administration's desire to invade
Iraq in 1990, the American people required similar persuasion. The public
relations firm of Hill and Knowlton was immediately summoned. Within hours
they filmed a Kuwaiti Prince's niece alleging she saw Sadam Hussein's elite
guardsmen torturing and maiming babies, pulling them from incubators, stabbing
them, then throwing them from windows.
- The American people were aghast. War
polls shot up favorably. President Bush declared, "This aggression
will not stand!" Then the war began. Following the conflict it was
determined that this entire Hill and Knowlton/Bush administration story
was fabricated. Americans quickly forgot and history has repeated itself.
- Enter Mr. Ronald Rockwell.
- As was indicated in the original press
release on this issue by Mr. Harris's supporters, Mr. Harris and Mr. Leavitt
were arrested following a tip by Mr. Rockwell--an FBI informant of dubious
integrity and a jaded history; an extortion felon convicted in 1981 and
1982. Rockwell told "NBC Nightly News" on Friday (Feb. 20, 1998)
that the thought of Harris and Leavitt coming to his facility with military
grade anthrax "scared me so bad" he called the FBI.
- This statement has many problems. First,
Mr. Rockwell knew that the purpose of the experiments was to find a way
to kill anthrax. Second, in order to do so, Larry Harris would have to
use samples of an organism (in this case, non- weapons grade agricultural
anthrax). Third, it was Mr. Rockwell, not Mr. Harris, who encouraged the
testing for a potential sale. According to Mr. Harris's intimates $20,000,000
was the total price for the instrument's purchase.
- Reported to be a cancer researcher and
businessman, Mr. Rockwell, was said to have developed the AZ-58 Ray Tube
Frequency Instrument Prototype. He alleged this device was able to remove
bacteria and viruses including "ANTHRAX" from "large numbers
of people at the same time."
- Mr. Leavitt is said to have contacted
Mr. Harris for help with the test. How did Mr. Leavitt learn of Mr. Harris?
According to a personal acquaintance of Mr. Leavitt who requested anonymity,
as witnessed by our groups, George Green introduced the two men. It is
known that Mr. Green, an alleged book publisher, was a personal acquaintance
of Mr. Rockwell. Both men frequented Neo-nazi organizational meetings.
Mr. Harris likewise attended some Neo-nazi meetings, but in another state.
- Several individuals attending the Global
Sciences Conference were aware that Mr. Green was frequent involved in
questionable financial dealings. Moreover, another anonymous source revealed
that Mr. Green had reported being asked by George Bush to head the President's
- A written statement submitted by Doug
Millar, a conference participant, and also an acquaintance of Mr. Rockwell,
provided further revealing insights. He wrote:
- "As a full time investigator of
violent crimes against children, I have met some of the most interesting,
important, weird, unusual and criminal minds in America. At a meeting
I was speaking at in Las Vegas last summer, a man came forward who claimed
to know a lot about the subject and about Las Vegas. He said that Ron
Rockwell referred him to our event. We met the next morning to discuss
what he knew. He started discussing racist issues and branched into neo-Nazi
comments. As someone who studied to become an FBI agent for a couple
of years in college, you learn to build trust with people before they are
willing to expose their inner secrets.
- Although I was raised to have contempt
for racists and am a member of the NAACP, I feigned interest, because I
wanted to find out why Rockwell referred such a despicable man to me.
Soon he was telling me about his meetings at conventions with Mitzgar,
David Duke, etc.. He had also known [a] Rockwell , the founder of the
American Nazi Party who was killed 25-30 years ago. Since he said he
spent a lot of time in Vegas, I told him a story that was in the local
newspaper announcing that the owner of the Imperial Palace Casino &
Hotel had celebrated Hitler's birthday with a party at the casino and Las
Vegas strip. Then I asked him the main purpose of my main fishing expedition,
"Where did you meet Ron Rockwell?" He shocked me with his answer,
"At a local Nazi meeting!" As someone who had been invited to
Rockwell's home to see the Rife technology a couple of times, I can state
that I know many people who agree with the statement of one of the top
retired law enforcement agency officials in America who told me, I know
you can't believe anything Rockwell says!' I certainly agree with that
- Another participant. in the discussion,
Dave Adair, one of America's leading aerospace experts, and frequent U.S.
government/space industry consultant, indicated that he had seen and recognized
unique equipment that Mr. Rockwell displayed during a previous Global Sciences
meeting. Mr. Adair knew that the equipment was build exclusively for the
National Security Agency (NSA). The equipment was classified hardware that
could only have been obtained by a U.S. government agent with high level
security clearances. Mr. Adair stated that he had asked Mr. Rockwell,
"What agency are you with?" Mr. Rockwell refused to answer
his question, then walked away.
- Mr. Adair also testified to ABC news
that Mr. Harris's arrest on Feb 19, 1998 was a "set up."
- According to USA Today (Feb. 20 p. 10A)
"Leavitt's two lawyers, Lamond Mills and Kirby Wells, suggested Leavitt
may have been duped and set up by Rockwell. According to attorney Mills,
Rockwell was trying to "scam" Leavitt into buying the bogus germ-killing
machine.(AP--Sat., Feb. 21, in The Daytona News- Journal, p. 3A.) They
said Leavitt is an "honest businessman" here who had been negotiating
with Rockwell to invest in his new technology and had hired Harris as a
consultant. They said Harris had brought harmless anthrax vaccine from
Ohio to test the technology. They suggested Rockwell told the FBI a different
story in order to get publicity."
- Publicity indeed, but not for the AZ-58.
- Rockwell, a cancer researcher, businessman,
and "scam" artist, would be intelligent enough to know that
such a stunt would likely backfire given his earlier felony conviction.
He would again risk facing criminal charges following a thorough FBI investigation.
That is, unless the FBI were also involved in the ruse. On the other hand,
if the machine really cleared viruses and bacteria, including "ANTHRAX"
from people's blood, and Rockwell was a smart businessman, then he would
expect Mr. Leavitt and Mr. Harris to test the machine with the agents he
advertised it cleared: "ANTHRAX." As a cancer and microbiology
researcher, the thought of a prospective buyer bringing "military
grade" anthrax in for such a trial should not have alarmed him. So
why then, other than to trigger a propaganda campaign, did Mr. Rockwell
alert the FBI?
- In any case, Mr. Rockwell's story, and
his actions, are suspicious if not incriminating. Had Mr. Rockwell become
an FBI informant earlier than reported? Perhaps during a plea bargain that
may have occurred in the wake of his 1982 conviction. Could he be linked
to the CIA?
- In this case the FBI may have been involved
with the CIA, or duped by them, in a conspiracy to generate biological
terrorism propaganda. Investigators should carefully examine Mr. Rockwell's
history for intelligence agency links.
- It was also suspicious that following
three days of studying Mr. Harris's anthrax vaccine, "CNN Headline
News" reported (on Saturday) that United States Army researchers,
supporting the FBI's investigation, were uncertain of their test results.
This is particularly strange given that anthrax is an easy germ to identify.
Can you imagine the risk to U.S. forces in the Gulf if it took more than
three days to confirm an anthrax attack!
- Finally, late Saturday night, "CNN
Headline News" reported that the substance in question was indeed
an anthrax vaccine, and that Mr. Leavitt had been freed. Leavitt stated
that under the circumstances, the FBI could not be blamed for his mistaken
arrest. Mr. Harris was still under arrest, however. This report followed
promising news regarding Kofi Annan's diplomatic efforts in Iraq. U.N.
officials were confident Sadam Hussein would comply with their inspection
- The friends of Larry Harris are currently
concerned about Mr. Harris's treatment under custody. Allegations have
surfaced that Mr. Harris has been a member of the Aryan Nations, a white
supremacist group. The long time friends of Larry Harris have reported
that this information has been fabricated, as they have no knowledge of
- Any way you look at it, the effect this
predicted episode had on the public's mind, and fear level, was consistent
with the effects of psychological warfare. Today the threat of domestic
bioterrorism looms greater than ever not because of Larry Harris, but because
of his manipulators.

focus is to work for the restoration of lawful government.
- 1 Larry Harris's resume is available
on request by contacting Terry Stough.
- 2 Items are available to lend support
for Mr. Harris's knowledge in the field of microbiology.
- 3 Regarding the prior arrest, Larry Harris
was convicted of wire fraud under an obscure "blue law" which
required you to leave your name and phone number when you leave a message
on an interstate call. The charge had nothing to do with possession of
biological agents. As a economic, etc. decision, he decided to plead guilty
to this charge in exchange for community service and probation. As a result
of the probation, he was required to report all activities including the
purpose and timing of his latest trip to Las Vegas which resulted in his
- 4 Dr. Horowitz's beliefs were based largely
on evidence compiled during the Frank Church Congressional investigation
into the illegal storage and use of biological weapons by the CIA long
after the signing of the Geneva Accord. For details, see Dr. Horowitz's
