Did Ebola really jump from African Fruit Bats to humans in 1976, or has this deadly pathogen emerged from a high-level bioweapons lab?
The Ebola Airline Frenzy hit fever pitch this week in the US. A select few lunatics in the corporate media government are saying some crazy things, too. For the first time ever, establishment conspiracy theorists are out-doing the blogosphere.
Leading the charge is Capt. Al Shimkus, a retired Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, who believes ISIS terrorists will use “human carriers” by intentionally infecting themselves in West Africa, before transporting the deadly virus via passenger airliner. That’s a lot of air miles for ISIS. Other wild wayward politicians, like former US Senator Scott Brown, are saying it too. Just imagine, a plot so outlandish that even Hollywood would have to politely pass on it.
But while highly-paid official media and military conspiracy theorists try to capitalize on the Ebola panic, the real truth is being obscured by their highly ornate, fear-driven PR smokescreen.
Before we make up our mind on the question of a genetically weaponized Ebola, let’s look at some facts, some cover-ups, as well as better understand historically how governments have always had a fatal attraction to a variety of deadly bioweapons…
In addition to a number international theories and analysis pointing to Ebola as a bioweapon, most Americans are completely unaware that the US is set to open one of the world’s largest bioweapons labs in 2015 – not in the US, but in the former Soviet satellite state of Kazakhstan. To top it all off, it’s built on an active seismic zone.
The new off-shore clandestine facility appears to fall under the Pentagon’s previously low-profiled, Orwellian titled, ‘US Defense Threat Reduction Agency’. A colorful former Soviet bioweaons scientist who is now affiliated with CIA, Dr Ken Alibek, also seems to be somehow involved with the the new US lab.
In their article, “Why The U.S. Is Building A High-Tech Bubonic Plague Lab In Kazakhstan?”, Vice Magazine’s Alex Pasternack seems to think other forces are at play:
“Today, biologists who worked in the former Soviet Union—like those who responded to a case of the plague across the border in Kyrgyzstan this week—are likely to brush Alibek’s fears aside. But they’ll also tell you that the fall of the Soviet Union devastated their profession, leaving some once prominent scientists in places like Almaty scrambling for new work.”
“That sense of desperation, underlined by Alibek’s defection to the US, has helped pump hundreds of millions of dollars into a Pentagon program to secure not just nuclear materials but chemical and biological ones, in a process by which Washington became, in essence, their highest bidder.”
“When it opens in September 2015, the $102-million project laboratory is meant to serve as a Central Asian way station for a global war on dangerous disease. And as a project under that Pentagon program, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the lab will be built, and some of its early operation funded, by American taxpayers.”
Despite the serious lack of any hard evidence that bioweapons were stolen and then sold on the international terrorist black market during the early 1990s, it hasn’t stopped US Pentagon officials from insisting that rogue scientists and rogue terrorists have them and are preparing to use them:
“You cannot erase this knowledge from someone’s mind,” said Lt. Col. Charles Carlton, director of the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency office in Kazakhstan. The threat of scientists going rogue, he said, is “a serious concern.” “We’re doing our best to employ these people. Our hope is that through gainful employment they won’t be drawn down other avenues.”
Governments Love Bioweapons
Is Ebola a US-developed bioweapon – as many have speculated already? US patent records show that an Ebola virus strain is held with the CDC. Check it out here.
Government and military fascination (and machinations) with biological weapons, or “bioweapons”, dates back to as early as 1,500 B.C. when the Hittites of Asia Minor sent plague victims into their adversaries’ lands. Later, the Romans used biological warfare on many occasions, including putting dead horses into an enemy’s water supply, and poisoning their enemy’s water supply with an intestinal typhoid bacteria.
The Crusades also saw both bio and chemical weapons deployed against the Arabs.

Fast forward to the 20th century and we can see industrial development and military deployment of chemical and biological weapons like Anthrax – used by the Japanese against the Chinese, but also ready to be used by the British – against Germany. As it turns out, it is the British who really pioneered the use of live virus bioweapons, with many war historians believing they used Smallpox as a biological warfare agent in the French and Indian Wars (1754-1763), and the American Revolutionary War (1775-1778).
Aside from classified US bioweapons facilities at Fort Detrick, Maryland and Plum Island in New York, other top bioweapons labs include Porton Down in England, Great Britian, and in South Africa at Roodeplaat Research Laboratories, home of the notorious and deadly Project Coast.
]Evidence suggests that the infamous US Anthrax Attacks of 2001 were the result of an engineered bioweapon being taken out of the lab and used against the public. Journalists like Wall Street Journal’s Edward Jay Epstein reported how the FBI ‘disproved its main theory’ – about how the spores were weaponized (obscuring the fact that they were weaponized in a US military lab), but none of the mainstream pundits dare dig-up the story of award-winning Army biologist Bruce Ivins, who appeared to be conveniently suicided in 2008 before being charged with the alleged anthrax mailings. His death seemed to mirror another high profile scientist, Dr. David Kelly (photo, left), who was also ‘suicided’ before being able to testify in front of a public hearing on, among other things, the missing Iraqi WMD’s.
Other popular bioweapons throughout history include Dead bodies, Tuberculosis, Bubonic Plague, Cholera, Tularemia (rabbit fever) and Botulinum Toxins, along with bioweapons still being researched – like Chimera Viruses. Ebola could easily be added to that list, if hasn’t been already.

If you’ve been following this subject of vaccines, then you will know that the truly mad visions and projects are those of the elite and the think tank-funded ‘futurists’. Melissa Melton from Truthstream Media explains:
“Questions like what happens if a mosquito bites an infected person, then flies off and bites someone else. Can Ebola spread then? Bill Gates certainly seemed to think so when he was funding research into mosquitoes as vaccine deployment systems.”
Conversely, concerns that the virus could be used by as biologica weaponl, are warranted, considering the depth and pedigree of bioweapons programs, particularly those ‘top secret’ military lab facilities in, or run by the US, which the US is still very reluctant to disclose.
Is the African Ebola the spill-over, either accidentally or intentionally, into Europe and the US – from a bioweapons lab?

US Links to Bio-Warfare Labs in Ebola Zone: Scholar
NEW YORK – The United States may be behind the deadly Ebola outbreak in Liberia and Sierra Leone, two West African countries known to host American biological warfare laboratories, a University of Illinois College of Law scholar told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.
“US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US,” Prof. Francis Boyle said.
“Why has the Obama administration dispatched troops to Liberia when they have no training to provide medical treatment to dying Africans?
How did Zaire/Ebola get to West Africa from about 3,500km away from where it was first identified in 1976?”
The US has pledged as many as 4,000 troops to the region. Thomas Duncan, 42, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the US, died on Wednesday. He caught the virus in his native Liberia and traveled to see relatives in the US.
“Why is the CDC not better-prepared for this emergency after the US government spent about $70 billion since the anthrax attacks of October 2001 to prepare for this exact contingency?” Boyle said…
