Recent discussions about Ebola have mainly focused on the disease as a public health hazard, but counterterrorism officials are concerned that the new outbreak could inspire terror groups, specifically those based in West Africa, to weaponize the virus. The fear of weaponized Ebola dates back decades to when the Soviet Union’s VECTOR program, aimed at researching biotechnology and virology, was thought to have researched the creation of Ebola for warfare. In 1992 a Japanese cult group called Aum Shinrikyo tried, but failed, to collect samples of the Ebola virus in Zaire.
Recent discussions about Ebola have mainly focused on the disease as a public health hazard, but counterterrorism officials are concerned that the new outbreak could inspire terror groups, specifically those based in West Africa, to weaponize the virus. The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has been working with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. to develop a treatment for Ebola. The “secret serum” was recently used to treat two American health workers who are infected with the virus (see “Disagreement over use of experimental drugs in desperate effort to contain Ebola outbreak,” HSNW, 11 July 2014).
As far back as 2010, the Defense Department (DOD) has been researching treatments for Ebola. Most notably, the U.S. Army’s Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases and DOD’s Joint Project Manager Transformational Medical Technologies Office signed a $140 million contract with Tekmira to develop a treatment for the virus. The collaboration was extended in 2013, and when the first cases of Ebola reemerged in March 2014, Tekmira was granted a Fast Track designation from the Food and Drug Administration for the development of TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola viral therapeutic.
“That the U.S. government takes the potential of Ebola as a bio-terror agent seriously is clear from the fact that it has invested tens of millions of dollars in vaccine and therapy research over the last decade,” says Peter D. Walsh, a professor at Cambridge University. The Washington Post reports that Amy Derrick-Frost, a spokeswoman for DOD, acknowledged that the department maintains research interests for protection against intentional use and natural exposure to Ebola as the virus may pose a danger to its personnel around the world. Pharmaceutical firms have few incentives to develop a treatment for Ebola since the virus is rare and naturally limited to sub-Saharan Africa; therefore research funded by DOD is vital for an Ebola treatment. The fear of weaponized Ebola dates back decades to when the Soviet Union’s VECTOR program, aimed at researching biotechnology and virology, was thought to have researched the creation of Ebola for warfare. The Post reports that in 1992, a Japanese cult group called Aum Shinrikyo tried but failed to collect samples of the Ebola virus in Zaire. “Ebola is among a handful of emerging infectious diseases that have historically been explored as a potential biological weapon, and we (DOD) are closely monitoring these types of infectious diseases,” Amy Derrick-Frost explained.
Though the concern for weaponized Ebola is appropriate, experts doubt that West African terror groups have the scientific skills and ambition to wage such objective, adding that Ebola is not airborne, which limits the number of casualties a terror group could target. A 2013 essay published by Amanda M. Teckman in the Global Policy Journal raised concerns about weaponized Ebola, but Teckman recently noted that the danger is “not probable” because weaponizing Ebola requires the knowledge and tools to store and disperse the virus.
Ken Isaacs, vice president of program and government relations at Samaritan’s Purse, said containment of the disease and international response has been “a failure,” and that he and members of his organization had been warning of the impending outbreaks since April.
He said epidemiologists expect the disease to spread, and then to go quiet for three weeks, and then to reemerge even worse. ” I think we are going to see the death toll in numbers we cannot imagine,” Isaacs said. “In the developing world, it has the potential to destabilize entire countries while creating widespread and even regional insecurity.”
(N.Morgan) The Elite are mocking us with this Ebola outbreak and are showing us just how big of a joke this is. In a Coca-Cola commercial from Africa, they show a flash of the End Of The World message. Again, the Elite love toying with us and letting us know just how our lives mean nothing to them. In the video below, you must see this video and the coincidences pointed out in the video, by EX0MATRlXTV.
The use of Subliminal manipulation is a technique the Elites love to employ in our everyday lives. Subliminal perception is a deliberate process created by communication technicians, whereby you receive and respond to information and instructions without being aware of it. Messages in the form of printed words, pictures or voices presented either very rapidly or very obscurely bypass your conscious awareness. Anything consciously perceived can be evaluated, criticized, discussed, argued, and possibly rejected. Anything programmed subliminally to your subconsciousness meets no resistance. This subliminal information is stored in your brain and capable of influencing your judgment, behavior and attitudes.
The use of subliminal techniques in print communication media has been going on in the United States at least since the World War I period. For example, Norman Rockwell’s first cover on The Saturday Evening Post during 1917 incorporated embedded SEXes. Whenever an embedded word or picture accidentally became consciously visible, the readers would pass it off as a joke, an accident, or a product of their imaginations.
Serious commercial experiments with subliminal messaging were conducted in the mid 50-s. On June 22, 1956, the British Broadcasting Corporation experimented with projecting subliminal images on television. Pictures were flashed on the screen too quickly to be seen consciously, but they did make an impression on the subconscious. The BBC experiment was followed by experiments by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Mexico’s Televisa commercial TV and radio network, US TV station WTWO in Bangor and many more.
