I don't necessarily "buy" all of this -- not yet anyway. I do think that it is, at least, interesting and may even cause some of us to pause and reflect and maybe even widen our field of focus when thinking about fighting the war on terror, why we are losing our freedoms and civil liberties, why censorship is increasing and right-to-know is going to hell, etc. If nothing else it's incredibly shocking.

Anthrax Mail Mystery Won’t Be Solved:
F.B.I.’s Hands Tied From Above
Sandpoint, ID — In an effort to help solve the anthrax mail
mystery one behavioral science and public health expert has
advanced a viable, yet unspeakable, “industrial espionage”
theory. Despite forwarding evidence to more than 1,500 F.B.I.
personnel and every member of Congress in recent weeks, the
resulting avoidance of his controversial theory has angered
political observers, grassroots activists, and news
investigators alike. It is becoming increasingly clear that
F.B.I. officials may be politically incapable of solving the
case given the “back off” orders they received from the Bush
The Harvard-trained investigator, Dr. Leonard
Horowitz, has used the F.B.I.’s own methods and materials in
the past for tracking serial killers. He has published
numerous books and scientific articles specifically in the
field of criminal investigations concerning cases in which
people have spread HIV—the AIDS virus—as biological weapons to
frighten and kill victims. Since October 1, two weeks before
the first anthrax mailing, he has called on the nation’s chief
law enforcement bureau to simply do its job. Officials have yet
to respond, pursue his leads, or solve the mystery.(1, 2)
“A serial killer’s motivation is always paramount in
every search and profiling of suspects,” Dr. Horowitz explains.
Suddenly, F.B.I. officials seem uninterested in this
criminology fundamental. “Even on television, homicide
investigators begin by asking who profits most by murder.
Closest kin and wealth recipients are typically scrutinized. So
why haven’t official investigators, or the mainstream media,
held anthrax and smallpox profiteers up to this customary
scrutiny? Some chief suspects are even operating near Trenton,
NJ where the anthrax letters originated.”
Dr. Horowitz begs the question, “Why, with more than
two dozen biologicals to choose from in state-run weapons
laboratories, has America’s incessant focus been limited to
anthrax and smallpox threats? Could the drug-makers who produce
the only state-sanctioned remedies for these agents be
economically and politically related to policy-makers?”
Apparently they are, according to mounting evidence.
Dr. Horowitz explains that standard F.B.I. serial
killer investigations, like that of “Unibomber” Ted Kaczynski,
who sent explosives through the mail, are supported by
analyzing the “developmental histories” of suspects. He
asks, “Might the histories of implicated drug companies,
including those that are demanding court warrants for F.B.I.
access to their labs, reflect those historically linked to
murder, or even mass genocide?”
In fact, the only FDA endorsed anthrax antibiotic,
Cipro, and government purchased smallpox vaccine, are products
of companies that evolved directly from Germany’s infamous WWII
military-industrial cartel—I.G. Farben. Cipro is produced by
Bayer AG, while the smallpox vaccine’s newly formed producers
are Acambis (previously OraVax), partnered with Baxter and
Aventis—created in 1999 by parent companies Hoechst and Rhone-
Poulenc. All have severely jaded histories.
Bayer and Hoechst were two of “The Big Three”
companies formed following the “decartelization” of I.G.
Farben. The CIA immediately took over their corporate
headquarters in Frankfurt, which had curiously escaped allied
bombings. Historians explain that the Farben complex had been
protected by military officials obligated to John D.
Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company—half owner of the Farben
Soon after the CIA began operations in the Farben
building, Bayer and Hoechst were reorganized in 1951 under the
direction of the Allied High Commission, largely influenced by
U.S. High Commissioner John J. McCloy—a lawyer and banker from
Philadelphia, with intimate ties to Rockefeller banking and oil
interests. After “decartelization,” the I.G. Farben labor camps
were consolidated into “The Big Three” holding companies—Bayer,
Hoechst, and BASF—for the benefit of the stockholders.
Hermann Schmitz, president of Bayer A.G and I.G.
Farben during WWII, who also largely directed the Deutsche
Bank, “held as much stock in Standard Oil of New Jersey as did
the Rockefellers,” according to former CBS News war
correspondent Paul Manning who thanked CIA director Dulles for
his historic accounts. On August 10, 1944, the Rockefeller-
Farben partners moved their “flight capital” through affiliated
German/French, American, British and Swiss banks “for the new
Germany,” according to Manning. This secured “the sophisticated
distribution of national and corporate assets to safe havens”
thoughout the world, and assured the continuation and further
development of the “Neuordnung” (new order) for both global
petrochemical-pharmaceutical and banking cartels.(2)
Historic records showed in the legal battle of
Standard Oil (NJ) et. al v. Clark, in 1947, that U.S. Circuit
Court Judge Charles Clark found this “unholy alliance” between
America’s wealthiest company and the Farben cartel was nothing
short of “an enemy national.” The judge wrote that the
Rockefeller plaintiffs “became enemy nationals [i.e., traitors]
after the outbreak of the war, since their concealment of I.G.
assets continued thereafter.” Such underhanded manipulations
for war profits prompted President Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his
Farewell Address to the Nation in 1961, to urge diligence
regarding the “military-industrial complex” and “the potential
for the disastrous rise of misplaced power.”(3)
More Modern Machinations
In 1998, a lucrative defense department contract was
granted to a new company, Bioport Corporation, for the
production of a largely untested anthrax vaccine. The firm was
formed principally by Saudi financier Fuad El-Hibri, reportedly
connected to Bin Laden family businesses and investments.
Bioport’s predecessor, the failing Michigan Biologic Products
Institute (affiliated with Michigan State University) failed to
secure FDA approval on their anthrax vaccine for several
reasons, including excessive contaminations and poor record
keeping. Others joining El-Hibri on the Board of Directors of
Bioport included Reagan staffer and Clinton advisor Admiral
William J. Crowe, Jr., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, and Senior Advisor for Global Options—an industrial
think tank whose members included former Director of Central
Intelligence, R. James Woolsey. In recent years Mr. Woolsey has
been a leading financial consultant who lectures extensively
on “industrial espionage.”(4)
Howard L. Rosenberg of ABC NEWS reported in March,
1999, that Bioport’s exclusive $29 million contract with the
U.S. Department of Defense to manufacture, test, bottle and
store the anthrax vaccine was overtly specious. “According to
former Central Intelligence Agency military analyst Patrick
Eddington, the estimated $60 million worth of anthrax vaccine
Bioport is expected to produce for the Defense Department over
the next five years could just be the beginning. The Pentagon
has a $322 million, 10-year program to develop at least three,
and perhaps as many as a dozen additional biological warfare
vaccines. . . . These have never really been tested, and most
importantly, no one has provided data to validate the
Another major stockholder of Bioport, Corp, according
to Chicago judicial system investigator Sherman Skolnick and
others (6,7), is The Carlyle Group—a $12 billion private
investment firm and the 11th leading defense contractor. This
group’s Chief Executive Officer, Frank C. Carlucci, III, was a
key CIA operations director in Sub-Saharan Africa at the time
AIDS broke out, and was National Security Advisor during the
Iran-contra scandal. Other Carlyle Group officials include
former cabinet members of the George H.W. Bush administration
such as Secretary of State James A. Baker, III, and members of
the Bin Laden family.
Mr. Baker and the senior Bush are likewise linked to
another experimental vaccine producer—Tanox Biomedical Systems
of Houston, Texas. This Baylor College of Medicine affiliated
lab is currently a defendant in a class action lawsuit filed on
behalf of Huntsville, TX prisoners and civilians who received
Mycoplasma contaminated vaccines and resulting infections.
Their diseases are astonishingly similar to those seen in the
Gulf War Syndrome, even though their vaccine experiments began
years before Operation Desert Storm.(8)
Updating the international intrigue visiting these military
vaccine producers, according to the Wall Street Journal, (Sept.
28, 2001), "The father of President Bush, works for the bin
Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle
Group . . ."
Exposing the Bioterror Cartel
There is a the strong probability that today’s widely heralded
biological threats such as smallpox, though potentially real,
may be orchestrated by multinational corporations and best
reflect industrial espionage activities. The media targeted
anthrax mailings that have effectively “wagged the dog” for
drug-maker profit is a classic example of this new form of
bioterrorism and military-medical profiteering.
Retired L.A. Police Department investigator-turned-journalist
Michael Ruppert agrees. He has published numerous articles
implicating Bush administration and CIA officials in profit-
making from various forms of terrorism following September 11.
Reinforcing the Carlyle Group connection, Mr. Ruppert wrote
that “The senior Bush had met with the Bin Laden family at
least twice in the last three years—1998 and 2000—as a
representative of Carlyle, seeking to expand business dealings
with one of the wealthiest Saudi families, which some experts
argue, has never fully severed its ties with black sheep
Osama.”(7) (ruppert's website is: http://www.copvcia.com/ )
The political strength and identity of these unsavory parties
connected to Bush and Bioport, and possibly other recently
formed vaccine and drug companies conveniently positioned and
illegally contracted to take advantage of anthrax and
smallpox “bioterrorism,” bodes badly for the FBI. The bureau’s
apparent unwillingness to follow Dr. Horowitz’s anthrax mailing
leads is best reconciled by the following facts. According to a
recent BBC report instigated by investigative reporter Greg
Palast for Britain’s premier Sunday Newspaper, The
Observer, “FBI and [U.S.] military intelligence officials in
Washington say they were prevented for political reasons from
carrying out full investigations into members of the Bin Laden
family in the US before the terrorist attacks of September
11. . . . [T]he FBI files were closed in 1996 apparently before
any conclusions could be reached on either of the Bin Laden
brothers . . . They said the restrictions became worse after
the Bush administration took over this year. The intelligence
agencies had been told to ‘back off’ from investigations
involving other members of the Bin Laden family, the Saudi
royals, and possible Saudi links to the acquisition of nuclear
weapons by Pakistan. ‘There were particular investigations that
were effectively killed,’” F.B.I. and intelligence officers in
Washington told the BBC.(9)
Conflicts of Interest, Illegalities, and Lies
Recently, according to Dr. Sidney M. Wolfe, health
director at Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen Health Research Group,
illegal meetings have been conducted between Bush
administration officials, including Secretary of the Department
of Health and Human Services (HHS), Tommy Thompson, and
principals of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of
America (PhRMA). Their covertly managed Emergency Preparedness
Task Force, in violation of federal transparency laws for such
decision-making bodies, is touting orders for enough drugs and
vaccines to protect every American against the threats of
anthrax and smallpox. The PhRMA task force is directed by
Aventis executive and anthrax mailing conspiracy suspect
Apparent illegalities did not deter Secretary Thompson
from ordering more than $100 million worth of Bayer’s Cipro, at
the “bargain price” of $.90 per tablet when other companies
offered equally effective and lower risk substitutes for a few
pennies each, and then for free. On October 25, 2001, Mr.
Thompson also asked Congress for another $500 million to
produce enough of the Acambis/Aventis smallpox vaccine “so
every American will be assured there is a dose with his or her
name on it if it is needed.” This, despite CDC official
admissions that people already vaccinated probably shouldn’t
take it, and the smallpox vaccine will require extensive
Meanwhile, much like Bioport, Acambis’s suspicious
evolution in recent months from the failing OraVax corporation
has many observers wondering.(13) OraVax had been likewise
linked to shady backroom dealings with Clinton administration
officials in 1998 regarding government orders for the (yet to
be tested) West Nile Virus vaccine. His prophetically titled
book released in June, Dr. Horowitz’s Death in the Air:
Globalism, Terrorism and Toxic Warfare (Tetrahedron Publishing
Group; 1-888-508-4787) recorded a stealth meeting between Dr.
Thomas Monath, the Vice President of OraVax (now Acambis),
President Clinton, Janet Reno, CIA Director John Deutsch, and
American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) curator Dr. Joshua
Lederberg, a former Rockefeller University President and
Council on Foreign Relations bioterrorism study group leader.
“What concerns me is not that a business deal was
struck, albeit illegally,” Dr. Horowitz said, “but that Dr.
Lederberg had falsely assured the American military and public
that no biological weapons were used during the Gulf War
despite his knowledge that the ATCC, under his watch, sent
nineteen shipments of various strains of anthrax suitable for
weapons production to Sadam Hussein in the years leading up to
Desert Storm, and that tens of thousands of vets may have
suffered and died from Gulf War syndrome as a result. These
people, largely directing the public health response to
bioterrorism, are completely untrustworthy.”
Dr. Horowitz’s allegations are documented in the U.S.
Congressional Record from Don Reigle’s committee hearings
concerning Gulf War syndrome. The Reigle report exposed ATCC as
the chief supplier of biological weapons strains to virtually
anyone with a lab, including pharmaceutical companies.(15)
Since the mailed anthrax strain is certified American, it
likely originated from ATCC.
So when the New York Times (November 9, 2001) reported
ATCC vice president Nancy Wysocki saying, “We have a very close
working relationship with many of the federal agencies,
including the FBI,” the “conspiracy of silence” Dr. Horowitz
was witnessing made even more sense.
“It’s not particularly reassuring that the F.B.I. and
the ATCC have a “close working relationship,” Dr. Horowitz
said. “Nor am I pleased to learn that the new delinquent
biotech firms are financed by Bush and Bin Laden family members
and associates. This does explain, however, why even after hand
delivering urgent requests for bureau officials to investigate
these white-collar criminals for possible industrial espionage
in the anthrax mailings, they never had the courtesy to
“Federal Bungling Incompetents” or Pawns in a Global Game
In fact, Dr. Horowitz initially hand-delivered a memo
to his regional F.B.I. office on October 1, 2001, almost two
weeks before the first anthrax letter was sent from Trenton,
New Jersey to the American Media building in Boca Raton,
Florida. His action was prompted after reading the Oklahoma
City bombing grand jury investigation, The Final Report,
commissioned by then State Representative Charles Key. It
stated that German-based neo-Nazi’s were known to
have “masterminded” both airline hijackings and U.S. military
installation bombings by the PLO. This matched what the F.B.I.
had reported, and reinforced the German connection to what was
obviously a Cipro and smallpox vaccine sales “scam.” The former
was likewise reported by the Washington Times.(4)
The F.B.I. reported that the silica-mixed anthrax
powder required expensive equipment, as well as a bioweapons
savvy microbiologist, to produce. They had ruled out Islamic
terrorist groups, but not “state-sponsored” crimes. This
likewise suggested to Dr. Horowitz a “white collar” gang was
behind the mailings.(16)
The New York Times (November 11, 2001) also reported
that F.B.I. agents were denied access to “some pharmaceutical
companies in New Jersey.” These companies demanded
agents “present a subpoena before they would grant access to
their files.”(14) Dr. Horowitz found this additionally
suspicious, if not seriously incriminating, especially since
Aventis, one of his primary suspects, had two plants within
forty-five minutes drive from Trenton.
“I should think that any company with nothing to hide
would welcome the bureau’s inquiry,” Dr. Horowitz
said, “especially at this time of national emergency.” To him
the drug firms’ response seemed like “Gestapo tactics rather
than amiable support.”
“I’ve asked the F.B.I. to thoroughly investigate the
possibility of industrial espionage being perpetrated by Bayer
corporate officials as well as possibly Dr. Thomas Monath, the
Vice President of OraVax/Acambis, and affiliated officials at
Aventis. I’ve also urged an inquiry into ATCC curator Dr.
Joshua Lederberg, and the financial interests he represents,
including Rockefeller pharmaceutical and banking interests,”
Dr. Horowitz said.
The trouble is, in the real world of power politics,
economic espionage, and bioterrorism, this level of
investigation and mainstream exposure is close to impossible.
In recent days bureau officials said they are closing
in on a suspect for a breakthrough in the case. Dr. Horowitz
concluded that, “It wouldn’t surprise me, given the high stakes
and to save face, our intelligence community would manufacture
another Lee Harvey Oswald. In this new world, our great
American law enforcement agency, under restraints posed by the
Bush administration and the CIA, has been reduced to a group of
Federal Bungling Incompetents.”
