Check Out These Fascinating Government Classified Photos

Could It Be A Real UFO?

Could It Be A Real UFO?

Due to the statute of limitations, some photos of notorious and iconic events were not released by the government until now. These classified photos are now available to the public. Some of these may leave you with more questions than answers.

Could It Be A Real UFO?

Once these photos became declassified by the CIA, the UFO ones were the first to be viewed by the public. None of the photos came with an explanation so no one really knows if this is, in fact, a UFO.

Syria Chemical Attack: Douma Whistleblowers Respond to OPCW’s Attempts to Discredit Them

By Dave DeCamp

Global Research,

Two whistleblowers that have been speaking out about a scandal within the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have responded to the organization’s attempts to discredit them. The OPCW has been doing some serious damage control over its investigation into a chemical attack that allegedly took place in Douma, Syria on April 7th 2018. New revelations from The Grayzone and journalist Peter Hitchens severely undermine the OPCW’s attack on the brave whistleblowers.

Leaked documents and testimony from the two whistleblowers show the OPCW ignored its experts and suppressed findings to fit the narrative that the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged attack in Douma.

The OPCW published its final report on the Douma incident in March 2019. That report concluded there were “reasonable grounds” to believe a chemical attack took place and that chemical was “likely molecular chlorine.” The first leak that undermined the final report was an unreleased engineering assessment published by the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media. The assessment analyzed two cylinders found in Douma that were said to be the source of the chlorine gas.

Central to the claim that the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged attack was the idea that the two cylinders were dropped from an aircraft. But the unreleased engineering assessment concluded there was a “higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed at those two locations rather than being delivered from aircraft.” This conclusion was left out of the final report.

The OPCW launched an investigation into the dissemination of the engineering assessment and released a report on it in February. The report titled, “Report of the Investigation into Possible Breaches of Confidentiality” does not find enough evidence to pin the blame on either whistleblower for leaking the assessment. Instead, the report is an attack on the credibility of the two individuals known as “Inspector A” and “Inspector B.”

Inspector A is Ian Henderson, a 12-year OPCW veteran and author of the leaked engineering assessment. Inspector B, a 16-year OPCW veteran, wishes to remain anonymous and is likely the whistleblower who used the pseudonym “Alex” when he gave testimony to journalist Jonathan Steele for a story published by Counterpunch.

The OPCW claimed that Henderson’s engineering assessment was not an official OPCW document and that Henderson completed it without going through the proper channels. A written statement from Henderson to the UN was published by The Grayzone shortly after the OPCW’s report on the leak came out and severely undermined this claim. According to Henderson’s statement, he had a green light from OPCW management to conduct the study, and upon its completion, the assessment was peer-reviewed by other OPCW employees.Exclusive: New Leaks Shatter OPCW’s Attacks on Douma Whistleblowers

Henderson and Inspector B responded to the OPCW attack through journalist Peter Hitchens in his blog for The Mail on Sunday. Both inspectors describe the OPCW’s investigation report as “a bait and switch tactic that creates the illusion of a report about a breach of confidentiality, when in fact it is little more than a public defense of the scientifically questioned Douma Report.”

Besides taking issue with the contents of the breaches of confidentiality report, the detailed response published in The Mail reiterates the whistleblowers’ main concerns with how the OPCW handled the Douma investigation. The OPCW Douma Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) that deployed to Syria was replaced with a team of inspectors that only deployed to “Country X,” which is likely Turkey. The Douma FFM compiled a detailed 116-page interim report that was highly altered by OPCW management before it was released to the public. After internal issues with the interim report, the Douma FFM was replaced.

The findings and scientific work of the Douma FFM were completely ignored in the drafting of the OPCW’s final report. One example of this is a meeting between OPCW inspectors and toxicologists that took place in June 2018, where toxicologists were shown pictures and videos of alleged victims. WikiLeaks published minutes from this meeting in December. According to the minutes, the “key takeaway” for the OPCW team that attended the meeting was that “the symptoms observed were inconsistent with exposure to chlorine.”

The findings from the June 2018 meeting with toxicologists are reflected in the original interim report but are not included in the final report. The final report mentions two consultations with toxicologists, one in September 2018, and one in October 2018, but no details from these meetings are given.

The OPCW claims that after the Douma FFM was dismissed, the bulk of the scientific work for the report took place. But as Inspector B puts it, “Regardless of what new information had been gathered since the Interim Report, it is scientifically unacceptable to exclude any facts that could impact on the conclusions of an investigation.”

The Grayzone obtained letters from both Henderson, and Inspector B addressed to OPCW Director-General Fernando Arias. In these letters, both men protest the OPCW’s investigation into the breaches of confidentiality.

In his letter, Henderson defended his and Inspector B’s reputation, “I feel that I need to respond to the attempted smear on the reputations of Inspector B and myself. We are long-serving and dedicated OPCW supporters. We both have reams of documents such as performance appraisals, emails, letters of commendation and others, that reflect a history of service at the highest level in terms of qualifications, skills, expertise, leadership, integrity and professionalism throughout our time at the OPCW.”

Henderson also addressed issues with the Douma investigation and brought a new detail to light. One of the cylinders in Douma was found on a rooftop balcony (known as Location 2), according to Syrian opposition that was on the ground, chlorine was discharged from the cylinder into the building and killed dozens of people in the basement. Henderson explains in his letter to Arias that the basement was not connected to the rest of the building. Henderson wrote, “The drafters of the final FFM report appear to have accepted that victims throughout the apartment block at Location 2, were immediately exposed to such high concentrations of chlorine that they collapsed on the spot and were not able to exit the building. This is all the more puzzling taking into account the upper parts of the building and the basement were not connected (i.e. the gas had to exit the building onto the street and re-enter the basement door).”

Henderson also raises a question about the meeting with toxicologists discussed above. Henderson asks, “Why did the report drafters omit the opinions of the toxicologists who considered the symptoms inconsistent with chlorine?”

The OPCW claims three independent experts disagreed with the conclusions of Henderson’s engineering assessment. Henderson suggests that he and these three independent experts should get together to “justify their work” and show “what facts, information, data, assumptions and inputs were used.” Henderson believes this exchange of facts and methodology will “quickly show who has got the wrong end of the stick.”

Inspector B’s letter also defended the reputation of the two whistleblowers. Both Henderson and Inspector B raised issue with the way Director-General Arias described them as “individuals who could not accept that their views were not backed by evidence.” Inspector B responded to that claim by saying, “It is not that A and B ‘are individuals who could not accept that their views were not backed by evidence’, it is that A and B are individuals who could never accept that a scientific investigation is not backed by science.”

Reading the long accounts from Henderson and Inspector B, it is undeniable that there was some sort of cover-up within the OPCW. Both Henderson and Inspector B said US officials from an unknown agency presented “evidence” to the Douma FFM that “proved” the Syrian government carried out a chemical attack in Douma. It was around the time of this briefing that the Douma FFM was replaced. The US had a clear motive to influence the OPCW’s investigation. Shortly after the alleged attack, the US, UK, and France launched an airstrike against Syrian government targets.

The blame for this cover-up does not lie solely on OPCW management, media outlets that have ignored this scandal share the responsibility. Since Russia intervened in Syria on behalf of the Syrian government, any information that goes against the Western narrative related to the war is framed as Russian propaganda or disinformation. But which government has a history of waging war in the region over false pretenses, especially related to chemical weapons or WMDs?

In Peter Hitchens blog for The Mail on Sunday, Ian Henderson presented a question he believed the investigators should have asked the Director-General. A question every investigator or journalist should ask: “Why would two of the most qualified senior Inspection Team Leaders, with impeccable records of scientific expertise, impartiality, and judgment, arguably the best in the organization, suddenly ‘go rogue?’”

US displays military might in Persian Gulf after Iran nearly attacks F-18 jets

The U.S. sent a message to Iran via its military activity in the Persian Gulf this week, as the two foes almost came to blows last week.

According to Fox News correspondent Lucas Tomlinson, the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier strike groups have been together in the Persian Gulf since last week, with F-18 Super Hornets escorting them through the Arabian Sea.

This U.S. aircraft carrier grouping seems to have come around the time that the Iranian military almost attacked F-18 Super Hornet that was flying near its border.

In a special report from the YCJ news site, the Iranian Army’s air defense forces can be seen warning a U.S. F-18 aircraft and later locking into the target after it ignored the Islamic Republic’s call to fly away from its airspace.

The incident marked the first time that the two countries were involved in a direct confrontation with one another since Iran fired several missiles at the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Airbase in Iraq’s Heet District.

The Iranian attack reportedly targeted the U.S. forces that were being housed at the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Base – no fatalities were reported as a result of this attack; however, several soldiers were later revealed to have suffered brain injuries.

US officials admit killing Qassem Soleimani has backfired

TEHRAN, IRAN – SEPTEMBER 18 : Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani attends Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s (not seen) meeting with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in Tehran, Iran on September 18, 2016. (Photo by Pool / Press Office of Iranian Supreme Leader/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)

In an article released on Saturday, March 21st, the New York Times reported that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump is experiencing a rift regarding their actions against Iran on January 3rd.

“President Trump was getting ready to declare the coronavirus a ‘national emergency’, but inside the White House last Thursday, a tense debate erupted among the president and his top advisers on a far different subject: whether the United States should escalate military action against Iran, a longtime American rival that has been devastated by the epidemic,” the NYT reported.

According to the NYT report, the U.S. Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper and General Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pushed back against U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien over the latter’s attempts to increase their aggressiveness towards Iran.

Esper and Milley reportedly warned that a large-scale response could draw the United States into a wider war with Iran and further strain the complicated relationship between the two nations.

Despite the aggressiveness of the U.S. administration towards Iran, it appears that not all American officials are on board for these confrontations.

Citing U.S. officials, the NYT said: “Some American officials now admit that the killing of General Suleimani has not – as some had hoped – led Iran and its proxies to think twice about fomenting violence inside Iraq and elsewhere.”

In fact, the U.S.’ assassination of the Quds Force commander Major-General Qassem Soleimani has further driven Iran from the negotiations table, as they have increased their hostility towards Washington.

The U.S. military, which was previously deployed across Iraq, has since withdrawn from several installations across the country and moved to three main bases.

Furthermore, the Iranian-backed groups have increased their attacks in Iraq, prompting the U.S. to increase their own security measures to protect their troops.

Coupled with the crippling sanctions imposed by the White House, it seems highly unlikely that Tehran will give Washington what they want, as Iran has proven that they will not be bullied into any agreement.

US, Colombia, Brazil Hold Alliance to Attack Venezuela

Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza in Caracas, Venezuela, March 9, 2020.

The Bolivarian Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza denounced that the U.S. and its allies want to depict Venezuela as a regional threat to justify a naval blockade and a military intervention.

Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza denounced that the United States, Colombia, and Brazil have established an alliance to increase the aggression against the Bolivarian people through a naval blockade.

“The White House is developing a chain of command to attack the Venezuelan people at all levels,” Arreaza said and explained that the imperialist plan could include a naval blockade to his country.

Over the last week, Colombia’s President Ivan Duque and Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro met with U.S. President Donald Trump to promote destabilizing acts in Venezuela and increase unilateral coercive measures.

The Bolivarian foreign minister strongly criticized the meetings held by the head of the U.S. Southern Command (SouthCom) Adm. Craig Faller met with Colombian and Brazilian military to discuss matters about Venezuela.

“Why does Venezuela always appear permanently in military meetings? Why should the military think politically about the governments of the region? Obviously it is a large-scale operation,” Arreaza stressed.

He also recalled that those conservative presidents insist on implementing the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Tiar), which seeks military intervention in the event of an extra-regional attack.

On the other hand, Arreaza blamed opposition politician Juan Guaido for the imposition of unilateral and coercive measures that violate the United Nations Charter.

“While they violate the Charter, we stick to it and to international law. We will go to the U.N. Security Council and give it details of everything they are preparing behind their backs,” he said.

Saudi Arabia: Princes’ Massacre: The Throne Undisputed

By: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

In an unprecedented precedent that the Al Saud family did not know, the most prominent princes in the country were imprisoned, headed by the most prominent neighborhoods of the founder Abdul Aziz, Prince Ahmed, the brother of King Salman, on charges of “treason” by seeking the coup. The accusation included three of the princes of the Naif family, the most famous of whom was the toppled crown prince, Muhammad bin Nayef, and he returned to the interface the file of the struggle of the wings and its mysteries. 

And while the Saudi media did not deny or question the narratives of the American media, the campaign’s reasons strengthened that the accusation was an excuse by Al Salman to tame the “pledge of allegiance” and suppress any restlessness or possible ambition on the wings of the family.

To know the magnitude of the feared strike, Al Saud’s palaces, it is sufficient to follow a torrent of tweets in the last hours, confirming loyalty and renewing allegiance to the king and his crown prince, published by the accounts of princes who until recently were inmates of the “Ritz-Carlton”, where they arrested, insulted, and deprived their financial and media empires. Those tweeters, such as “Prince of Cola” for example (Abdul Aziz bin Fahd, or Prince Azzuz, the richest man on the planet, possesses unique characteristics that may not be known to each other from their abundance, stripped of the treasures of treasures, the most important of which is the MBC group). Their heads these days, and they are right, they are nothing but remnants of the “semi-survivors” of the ongoing Salman campaign against the princes of the royal family.

Since 2015, with media fanfare or otherwise, Asmaa has disappeared, others have been kidnapped, and doubts have been raised about some people’s lives or being placed under house arrest. However, the new chapter of abuse for the cousins ​​appeared different in some of its circumstances from the most famous in 2017: “The Ritz-Carlton”, where the campaign extended to include the then Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri.

There is no “hospitality” this time around, just like the princes had many hotel guests, and talk of corruption and money. The novel was presented as the fact that the incident is a crackdown on the “traitors” group of princes, and that means thwarting a coup d’etat that was under preparation behind the walls of the palaces, orchestrated by the alliance of the two princes: Muhammad bin Nayef, his uncle Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz, and other people involved between princes and officers.

The American media account, published by an organized leak, distributed in more than one known medium, and it is still standing without official denial or even questioning the circles of the system. Rather, the leakers continued to publish details of news of the arrest campaign, with news of new arrests.

Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz

It is known about Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz (77 years), the seventh of the “Seven Sudairians”, balance, calmness and weakness of personality. The last of King Salman’s siblings alive is also known for his love and trust in a large spectrum of princes, especially those narrowly fed between them and restless from the escalation of Muhammad bin Salman. The most important thing that revolves around him is to repeat his name every time the Western media touches on the door of the crisis of Ibn Salman and his replacement scenarios. The climax of the case was during the scandal of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Prince Ahmed’s return to the country today from the United Kingdom undoubtedly aroused Ibn Salman, who is under diplomatic and media pressure, especially when the return was coupled with hints that he could be replaced by him in the province of the Covenant, with Western blessing. Demonstrating the family’s unity and interdependence in the face of the new attack was the price of the man’s return in the difficult period, and motivated the Salman family’s hedging and bending over with the storm.

What will make matters worse is speculation about Prince Ahmed’s ability to play a future role within the Allegiance Commission, which is said to be the third of three (out of 34) who did not vote on Ibn Salman’s choice of the mandate of the covenant, and he is best known for a video clip calling on protesters over the Yemen war to blame The King and Crown Prince instead of the House of Saud. This body, which is composed of the sons of the founding king Abdulaziz and other princes, and whose work is surrounded by ambiguity (no one knows who chaired it at the last meeting or who is chairing it now), is assigned to it according to the system of governance the most important matters: checking the king’s eligibility healthily, and voting to choose the crown prince of the king . According to the latest amendment of the regime, Ibn Salman will not be able to obtain a crown prince from among his children and siblings, but rather the grandson of the founder Abdel Aziz from another branch, i.e. from the cousins.

Muhammad bin Nayef

Prince Al-Sudairi, who was expelled from the mandate of the Province of Al-Ahd, is distinguished by the loyalty of officers in the Ministry of Interior and strong ties to the western security services, which he recognized and built up during the cooperation in the war against Al-Qaeda during the years of the decade following the September 11 attacks. It is said that, after excluding him from the mandate of the Covenant and then the return of Prince Ahmed to the country, he began to approach the latter with what raised suspicion at Al Yamamah Palace, especially since the prince and his uncle shared the attribute of western satisfaction with them, at a time when distrust of the Americans leaked to Ibn Salman, after the repercussions The Khashoggi case. However, this information contradicts the scarcity of Ibn Nayef’s media appearance, which explains that the man is restricted in movement, that is, under house arrest or under strict supervision.

Whatever it is, the inclusion of the son of Nayef’s campaign of arrests is also explained by its coverage, according to the leaks, his half-brother Prince Nawwaf. This means that the truce with the Sudairi branch, which began with the appointment of Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Nayef, as Minister of the Interior, has ended. Accordingly, Abd al-Aziz has since this day been on the list of candidates for dismissal in the coming days, as well as the exclusion of the Naif family in general more and more, especially as sources in the royal court reported that the Wall Street Journal stated that the father of the minister, the prince of the eastern region and the eldest son of Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz Saud bin Nayef, later summoned. Also, according to the sources, officers in the Ministry of Interior and Defense were arrested.

King Salman is dying?

To explain what the leaks revealed, analysts rushed to speculate the king’s health would deteriorate, or to conceal his death in the final hours. The explanation stems from the fact that the death of King Salman will impose two benefits on his successor: First, the pledge of allegiance to him smoothly. The second is to impose the name of a crown prince on his “pledge of allegiance” that chooses the crown prince, and Prince Ahmed has influence within it. It is more likely that his brother Khaled would be satisfied with this, which is prevented by the regime according to the new amendment. Consequently, what is required is oppression by the one who poses the slightest threat to the era of the grandchildren’s rule, and the terror of those who remain silent until the regime is modified again and the throne is practically confined to the Salman family, thereby limiting the ambition of the rest of the branches.

Yesterday, King Salman appeared accepting the accreditation of the Ukrainian and Uruguayan ambassadors (AFP)

However, the king’s health scenario quickly fades if we notice that last Thursday Salman, just hours before the leak, received British Foreign Secretary Dominic Rapp in Riyadh. Even his appearance yesterday, as he accepts the accreditation of the Ukrainian and Uruguayan ambassadors. A Reuters source confirmed that King Salman “is in good mental and psychological condition” and he agreed to carry out the arrests.

Was it a coup then?

The five sources who confirmed to Reuters news leaks, “The Wall Street Journal” and “New York Times” and later “Bloomberg” additions, contradicted the details of the novel. While the two American newspapers reported that the two princes were arrested from their home by masked members of the Royal Court’s guard, Reuters quoted sources as saying that the two princes Nawaf and Muhammad bin Nayef were arrested in their camp in the desert, while Prince Ahmed was arrested from his home. The most important thing in “Reuters” is a source’s statement that the reason for the arrests is that Bin Salman “accused them of making contact with foreign powers, including the Americans and others, to carry out a coup.” A source added that the princes “were discussing the implementation of a coup with the support of influential tribes, but these discussions did not reach an advanced stage.”

The Khashoggi crisis recedes, to which the addition of Prince Ahmed to a coup, as well as those familiar with his compromising personality, suggests two indicators that suggest that the pretext of arrest is not correct, i.e. a coup plot, despite the hypothesis of Ibn Nayef’s ability to help Prince Ahmed by harnessing his remaining influence in the security establishment. The absence of a coup plot does not refute the information about the fabrication of this accusation, which is reinforced by the interpretation of it as an excuse, which was confirmed yesterday by two sources for the “Associated Press”, denying the intention of the coup to Prince Ahmed, but only from him was resentful of the decision to close the Great Mosque of Mecca within the measures to prevent the spread of “Corona ». Observers of the ruling family’s affairs point out that the reason behind the fabrication of the coup pretext is to strive to achieve two goals:

Closing the gap opened by the Khashoggi crisis and extracting the loyalty, support and extradition of princes. The Salman family had completed their control of the government and paved the way of Ibn Salman with the traditional “federal influence” of Fakfah with the “Ritz” arrests and the establishment of a new system that concentrated all forms of power in the hands of the Crown Prince. However, the repercussions of the killing of Khashoggi hit a murderer from the image of Ibn Salman, “Prince of openness, change and moderation.” It allowed the shaking of the new situation and the emergence of Prince Ahmed. Medialy, he did not return the doubt to the Crown Prince, in light of the calls to consider replacing him with external support. However, the latter’s steadfastness, and the position of US President Donald Trump, who remained steadfast in supporting bin Salman, ultimately contributed to the removal of pressure.

Preparation for the expected round: The Allegiance Commission. In spite of the growing internal strength that Ibn Salman has become, the prince and his father, the king, and his father, the king, have to remove any possible disturbance emanating from the princes’ ambition. The father and son prefer the former not to step down from the throne for the second, given the presence of Salman’s cover and support, but a scenario remains difficult to say for sure. And if the concession is possible (some expect that bin Salman wants it before the kingdom hosts the “Twentieth Summit”), and in order to secure a smooth transition path, it requires taming the “pledge commission” to pledge allegiance to the eighth king, the first king outside the bounds. It is a required taming in any case, in the event of a waiver during the life of the king or after his departure, to win a pardon from the Salmani House after modifying the system. And targeting a man like Prince Ahmed by recording the precedent of arresting one of Abdel Aziz’s sons and accusing him of treason, means that there is no tent over anyone’s head.

Chinese government spokesman: The US military may have entered Corona into China

Chinese government spokesman Zhao Li Jian said Thursday that the US military may have brought the Corona virus to the Chinese city of Wuhan, which was hardest hit by the outbreak.

Zhao Li Jian posted a tweet in English on his Twitter account, saying, “When did the disease appear in the United States? 

How many people were injured? What are the hospital names? Perhaps the US military brought the epidemic to Wuhan … be transparent! Declare your information! America owes us an explanation. ”

Coronavirus was produced in a laboratory: Former CIA intel officer

US Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) (L) talks with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a rally with fellow Democrats before voting on H.R. 1, or the People Act, on the East Steps of the US Capitol on March 08, 2019 in Washington, DC. (AFP photo)

Novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory disease first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

A former American counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer of the CIA has said that the “Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.”

Since the novel coronavirus outbreak began in China last December, it has infected more than 90,000 people globally and killed more than 3,000. The majority of cases and deaths remain in mainland China.

The death toll from the coronavirus in Iran, which has one of the highest numbers outside China, stood at 107, Health Ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said Thursday.

“Several reports suggest that there are components of the virus that are related to HIV that could not have occurred naturally. If it is correct that the virus had either been developed or even produced to be weaponized it would further suggest that its escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology Lab and into the animal and human population could have been accidental. Technicians who work in such environments are aware that “leaks” from laboratories occur frequently,” Philip Giraldi wrote in an article published by the Strategic Culture Foundation on Thursday.

“There is, of course and inevitably, another theory. There has been some speculation that as the Trump Administration has been constantly raising the issue of growing Chinese global competitiveness as a direct threat to American national security and economic dominance, it might be possible that Washington has created and unleashed the virus in a bid to bring Beijing’s growing economy and military might down a few notches. It is, to be sure, hard to believe that even the Trump White House would do something so reckless, but there are precedents for that type of behavior,” he said.

“In 2005-9 the American and Israeli governments secretly developed a computer virus called Stuxnet, which was intended to damage the control and operating systems of Iranian computers being used in that country’s nuclear research program. Admittedly Stuxnet was intended to damage computers, not to infect or kill human beings, but concerns that it would propagate and move to infect computers outside Iran proved to be accurate as it spread to thousands of PCs outside Iran, in countries as far flung as China, Germany, Kazakhstan and Indonesia,” he added.

“If one even considers it possible that the United States had a hand in creating the coronavirus at what remains of its once extensive biological weapons research center in Ft Detrick Maryland, it is very likely that Israel was a partner in the project. Helping to develop the virus would also explain how Israeli scientists have been able to claim success at creating a vaccine so quickly, possibly because the virus and a treatment for it were developed simultaneously,” he noted.

Philip Giraldi

Israeli scientists have claimed to be close to developing a vaccine for coronavirus that could be available in about 90 days, saying they have developed an effective vaccine against avian coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV), which is to be adapted soon and create a human vaccine against COVID-19.

Will Policy of Destabilizing Latin American Countries Help Trump to be Re-Elected?

By Paul Antonopoulos

Global Research,

As the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election campaign heats up, there is every chance that Donald Trump can become a one-term president as the popularity of Bernie Sanders increases despite the sabotage within his own Democrat Party against him. There still remains a strong possibility that Sanders can become the next president sitting in the White House. Sanders continues to grow mass appeal, with former Trump White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon even conceding last month that the Democrat candidate is a “populist,” even if it is different to that of Trump’s. Sanders appeals to the impoverished by directing the frustrations of Middle America to the ultrarich who are fighting tooth and nail to bring the U.S. to Western standards by providing free education and healthcare. This is in contrasts to Trump’s populism which redirects anger of Middle America’s increasing impoverishment to the so-called immigrant “invasion” coming from Latin America.

One of Trump’s main platforms for his seemingly ‘unlikely’ election win, as many so-called experts thought of it back in 2016, was to build a wall traversing the border between the U.S. and Mexico to make it even more difficult for illegal immigrants to enter the North American country. All the slurs and accusations of racism were not able to subdue Trump’s fever as many in Middle America believed they finally found a candidate that spoke their language, addressed their issues and provided a solution to the so-called problem of illegal immigrants “invading” their country. Trump of course knows that illegal immigrants are not the reason for the U.S. problems of de-industrialization, lack of job opportunities, unaffordability and poverty – but it was this rhetoric that projected him into what was an unexpected win for the presidency against Hillary Clinton.

With Sanders speaking of a new populism, not based on a so-called invasion from immigrants, but actually addressing the real issues of the U.S. political and economic system, it is likely that Trump will resort back to the fear of Latin American illegal immigrants to project him to the presidency. This of course may not be necessary in the likely case that the Democrats ignore the popularity of Sanders to go for a Hillary Clinton-like hack and establishment pawn like Joe Biden who will prove unpopular against Trump. None-the-less, Trump will not take chances and will begin using the refugee card, frightening U.S. voters with the threat of new flows coming from Venezuela, Bolivia, Honduras, Mexico and other countries.Trump’s Win Wasn’t Ideological. It Was Brilliant

Meanwhile the world’s focus right now is on the Greek-Turkish border where tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are trying to enter Greece on the orders of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, with a high level of international solidarity going to the European country. However, there are stark differences between the migration crisis between the U.S. and Greece. Greece is an impoverished post-colonial country that was under Turkish occupation for over 400 years and does not have the means to support such large numbers.

Nor is Greece the reason for this migrant crisis as it had not invaded Afghanistan, where the majority of illegal migrants come from despite the incorrect reporting that they are Syrian, nor did Greece invade or apply economic sanctions on Pakistan, Iran, North Africa and Syria where the other illegal migrants are from. In the case of Latin America though, the U.S. is the key country in destabilizing the region and therefore has a responsibility to attend to the refugees that itself created. Although many in Middle America are impoverished, this is a result of their own leaderships economic policies, and rather the U.S. is the world’s richest country and has the means and capabilities of dealing with Latin American migrants it creates.

Non-the-less, as the so-called “invasion” of illegal immigrants has drastically decreased, Trump will be wanting to desperately destabilize Latin American countries to create an atmosphere of fear in the U.S. ahead of the presidential election to show voters that he is their only and sole defender whom they must elect in order to secure their future and safety. It worked in 2016 and he will be betting for it to work again later this year. Trump has already mentioned he has some kind of intentions of doing this during an address to the Latino Coalition Legislative Summit only yesterday.

“We’re with Venezuela all the way, and we’re doing a lot, and we have a lot planned,” said Trump, adding that

“the tragedy in Venezuela is a reminder that socialism and communism bring misery and heartache everywhere they’re tried,” prompting a cry of “gracias” from a member of the audience.

Trump has consistently applied devastating sanctions on Venezuela in an effort to force the removal of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and in support of wannabe president Juan Guaidó.

However, these sanctions have had such a devastating effect on the Venezuelan economy that it has prompted many people from the country to seek a better life in the U.S. Trump has not hidden away from the fact that he has “a lot planned” for Venezuela, which only guarantees further misery in the country. Unlike Greece, the U.S. prompts illegal migration by destroying the very countries that these people come from. Not only does this destruction serve U.S. corporate interests in these countries, it will also serve Trump’s re-election campaign as there is a strong likelihood that a new immigration crisis will appear at the borders between Mexico and the U.S.

US-funded “Disinformation Oversight” of Bio Weapons Prevention Programmes in Georgia

By Henry Kamens

The Richard Lugar Lab is fast becoming a topic of household conversation in both Georgia and the Russian Federation, because increasing numbers of people care that it is not a public health facility, as claimed, but a threat to the population and humanity as we know it.

The Caucasus region is an ideal location for the United States to outsource its ‘grey zone’ research to. Many of the most ‘attractive’ viruses and bacteria for weaponization occur naturally in this region, so they can be studied in their natural habitat. The region is also known for its thriving black market economy and trafficking, as the lack of democracy and a civil society makes it easier to hide things from the world.

But what is now concerning US officials is the attention Russia is paying to the topic of bio weapons and other related medical programmes. What has been uncovered so far demonstrates that the question is NOT whether the US is in violation of the 1972 Biological Weapons Treaty BUT to what degree.

The US has long tried to deflect attention from these programmes. American journalist and Bureau Chief for Veterans Today in Georgia, Jeffrey Silverman, a long time resident of Georgia, is again in the cross fire for his articles and series of recent TV interviews, having endured a long series of indignities, and downright illegal acts, at the hands of his own government and embassy.

But the new attacks on Silverman coincide with recent revelations in the Russian media. Igor Giorgadze, the former State Security Minister of Georgia, dropped a bombshell in mid September when he leaked documents containing information about “a laboratory located near Tbilisi named after US Senator Richard Lugar”, and how some experiments had turned deadly.

Various media groups describe such breaking stories as recurring disinformation, and further claim that there is no factual evidence that the US is building biological laboratories in the Caucasus region in order to use it as a testing site. The same media groups also denied that the US was losing the Vietnam War and declared the well documented CIA human rights abuses in places like Paraguay weren’t happening either.

But Giorgadze, a former Georgian State Security Minister, and Silverman beg to differ. They claim that such labs and related medical projects may have secretly conducted experiments on people, some of which have had fatal outcomes.

Right or Wrong Person to Ask?

Giorgadze has asked Donald Trump to launch an investigation into the experiments conducted by the laboratory. This really has some in Georgia concerned, as Trump is no fan of Big Pharma. He recently stated that the much touted flu shot is the greatest scam in medical history, created by Big Pharma to make money off vulnerable people and make them sick.

US-government funded media watchdogs and strong-arm agencies have fought back by using Homeland Security to harass Silverman when he traveled to and from the United States earlier this year, when he was finally allowed to make his first trip home in over 14 years. On both arrival and departure he was subjected to repeated body and bag searches, including seizures of his phone and personal documents, in direct violation of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution.

Such frontal attacks on this journalist date back to when the first stories about the Lugar laboratory, and the nefarious research linked with it, broke in Georgia in 2013. As he has since backed up many of his allegations with actual documents, there has been a concerted effort to discredit him, not only in Georgia but in the international media.

Silverman continues to publish in the Georgian language media, and has described how the concentration camp patients of Nazi Doctor Joseph Mengele can be compared to the civilians residing close to the Lugar laboratory, as they [too] did not understand the threat they were under until they were placed in the medical experiment section death camps—when it was too late.

“I am warning those who live near the Lugar Laboratory that they are under a big risk. The locals who settled there were misled that this was an ordinary laboratory and nothing else.”

Georgy Iremidze, head of the Georgian based Patriot news agency, which is labelled pro Russian by the same detractors, adds to the debate:

“On paper, the lab is run by the Georgian government, or rather the Ministry of Health. But in reality, it is operated by the American government. The idea is that, if something goes wrong, the Georgian government will take the blame so that the American government can stay under the radar”.

A Lot for Nothing

The United States has provided a total of US $350 million for the construction and technical equipping of the laboratory. In 2013 the laboratory was allegedly subordinated to the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC), and from 2018 the Government of Georgia will assume responsibility for the full funding and operation of the Lugar center and laboratory network, or so we are told.

However it is only the US which has an interest in building such laboratories. Other countries would face sanctions from more powerful neighbours, who can build worse facilities of their own, for doing so. The US wants to flout the Biological Weapons Convention and then claim, if caught, that this is something only dubious, less-developed, “ignorant” countries do, as it usually does when questions are asked in places like Syria and Iraq.

The Lugar Laboratory is located not far from Tbilisi International Airport. This means that loading weaponized agents and moving viruses and bacteria around the world is expedited. It is conceivable that the United States may be trying to continue its losing battle in Syria by using biological and chemical weapons, as military planes, which are based at NATO airfields, have been landing at the airport with increasing regularity for no other apparent reason.

The same deadly and especially dangerous pathogens could also be targeted, as an aggressive act, against Turkey and the Russian Federation. The US has a history of doing this, and we might recall the Swine Flu outbreak in Russia 12 years ago.

Even unsuspecting humans could be weaponized and board civilian fights, just as was described in Station 11, a work of fiction, and how the Georgian flu killed over 95 percent of the world’s population. Emily St. John Mandel’s fourth novel, “Station Eleven,” begins with a spectacular tragedy on a considerably vaster scale arrives in the form of a flu pandemic so lethal that, within weeks, most of the world’s population has been killed.

It is standard medical practice that nothing that is injected into the body should be used past its expiration date. But the US military, and other organizations like MARFOREUR, USAMRIID, ClinicalRM, WRAIR, and DTRA, are being accused of giving many such preparations to allied countries as “aid”. They have been widely used on the general population in Georgia, even children, without the victims’ full knowledge and informed consent.

When questions are asked, it funnels this aid not through medical bodies but TMC Global Professional Services. This company has overseas offices in nine countries throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and two offices in the US, in Virginia and New Mexico. Most of its work is as a US Government contractor on Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) programmes, with national laboratories and other DoD customers. For example, it manages an international project at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant site (ChNPP).

Too Many Roads Lead to Rome

The Myth Detector claims to have debunked “disinformation” spread around the Hepatitis C elimination programme on several occasions—but it fails to mention the nexus of this programme to TMC. Nor does it give, or investigate, the technical backgrounds of those doing the debunking, who just post pre-written statements provided by their Embassy contacts or PR staff working in the Lugar lab.

It is not difficult to expose those actually working in these military projects at the management level. Silverman was once hired by International Crisis Group, ICG, and the French government to look at the links of these researchers. He soon discovered how the Lugar and partner projects are connected to American, European and other scientific centres.

All the highly skilled professionals in the TMC office in Georgia left in 2010 to form a new organisation, Sigma. The most high profile of these was Richard Mah, who had worked at Los Alamos. You do not leave the golden handcuffs, and diamond pension, of a US defence contractor to start a company from scratch unless you feel too compromised to stay with that contractor. But nobody is interviewing Mah, or the main TMC person in Georgia nowadays, Giorgi Begiashvili, before claiming “disinformation”.

Day Late and Fact Short

The US can get away with violations of treaty law because what it addresses has been superseded by new developments and changed beyond recognition. It has often been observed that when a certain narcotic is made illegal, another one comes along which is equally deadly but gets round the laws as written. Claims that any treaty violations are accidental are difficult to disprove because such violations are so widespread as to be unavoidable.

The US bio weapons legislation is codified in Section 817 of the Patriot Act. It effectively gives the US immunity from violating its own bioweapons laws, despite the fact that such a national law cannot override an international treaty that country is bound by. Specifically, it states that “the prohibitions contained in this section shall NOT apply to any duly authorised US governmental activity.”

Prior to enactment of the Patriot Act, federal law proscribed the use of biological agents or toxins as weapons, in 18 U.S.C. 175. This outlaws possession of a type or quantity of biological agents or toxins that cannot be justified for peaceful purposes. In short, what is being done for the purpose of military use, offensive, is now being justified under the guise of peaceful purposes.

Regardless of the ledger of truth and innocence, a public debate has begun which is cross cultural and beyond borders. As a result of it, some of what goes on behind closed doors, under the flimsy disguise of public health protection and non-proliferation of bio weapons and especially dangerous pathogens, is now out in the open.

One only needs to look more closely at what has been done in Georgia at various DOD funded labs and medical projects. There is a long list to explore, including deaths from experimental TB antibiotics, a succession of dodgy programs doctors refuse to talk about, and various experimental treatments on what is often an unsuspecting population.

If you do not wish to believe Silverman or the Russian media, enough can be gleaned from open sourced academic materials which clearly demonstrate that proper procedures for informed consent are not being implemented. These shine light on what appear to be “backhanders” paid by and to various funding agencies, the UN, the US State Department, Big Pharma and various partner organizations, including the Ministry of Health, various American universities and the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta Georgia.

Information is now being shared with the Congressional Oversight Budget Office, about the apparent planting of false and misleading information. However, all this demonstrates is that US-funded disinformation oversight is in fact blatant disinformation itself, as anyone who has lived in a country on which the US has an “official narrative”, such as Georgia, has always known.

Not only are some of these new generation bacteria agents and especially dangerous pathogens so evolved that there is no antibiotic or other treatment that can save a patient. Often the cure is only available in the form of bacteriophage preparations, as also is being produced in Tbilisi Georgia on the first floor of Building B at Eliava Institute.

It comes as no coincidence that the US Department of Defense and other agencies have also poured money into improvement of infrastructure at the laboratories on the second and third floors, where the planned production area is housed. These laboratories are used to produce bacteriophage on short notice and will be used for phage concentrate production that is used in the final phage product.

Founded in 1923, the Eliava Institute is a world renowned institution working in the field of Applied Microbiology, Virology and Infectious Immunology. Bacteriophage research and application is its main direction.
