MORE FORCED ANTHRAX SHOTS
It was a long, hard-fought battle, with plenty of disappointments and heartache along the way, but at last we have won the fight against forced anthrax shots in the U.S. military.
Barring unlikely intervention and a presidential “waiver” by George W. Bush, this cruel scam, which lined the pockets of profiteers like slimy retired Navy Admiral William Crowe, part-owner of Bioport in Lansing, Mich., the only facility licensed in the U.S. to produce the so-called “vaccine,” has at last run its evil course.
Thanks to a ruling by a federal judge that stopped the Pentagon’s mandatory anthrax inoculations, calling them “illegal” without the “informed consent” of service members, this draconian program – which resulted in deaths from adverse reactions, crippling illnesses for others, and court-martial and loss of career to hundreds of courageous service-members who chose not to be “guinea-pigs” – should finally be over.
FDA DIDN’T FOLLOW IT’S OWN REGULATIONS – JUDGE
Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, fired a torpedo into the highly controversial program when he declared the Food and Drug Administration failed to follow it’s own regulations when it approved the “vaccine” to specifically protect against “aerosolized anthrax” that could be used in a biological attack.
The FDA failed to properly classify the vaccine as “safe and effective” for use against the inhalation type anthrax, Judge Sullivan wrote.
“Unless and until” the federal agency does that, the judge ruled, “the involuntary anthrax vaccination program, as applied to all persons, is rendered illegal.” The judge said service members must have their “informed consent rights” protected in view of what he called forced submission to “an investigational drug.”
PRIOR ATTEMPT TO STAND UP FOR THE TROOPS
Readers of this web site, which has featured some 20 separate articles on this controversy in the past four years, know that we were sharply critical of Judge Sullivan 10 months ago when he lifted his initial ban on the shots.
At that time, the Pentagon and FDA officials countered his order eight days after the ruling, claiming the vaccine was “safe and effective protection” against inhalation anthrax. But now we know that wasn’t true.
While it’s possible the Justice Department, which represents the government in this battle, might ask the D.C. Court of Appeals to overturn Sullivan’s ruling, it would have to be done within a 45-day period.
One other option they have, but one that would create a political “firestorm” for the Republican Party, is for the Pentagon “fat cats” to pressure President Bush to “waive” troops’ rights to informed consent. Their rational is, the commander-in-chief could hide behind that old standby of “in the interest of national security.”
But that won’t fly! With the mainstream media no longer preoccupied with trying to elect their boy John Kerry as president, CBS, the New York TIMES and the Washington POST would jump all over Bush if he even thought about going against the nation’s armed forces like that, a group that supported him overwhelmingly in the past election.
Such a “waiver,” would be the “ultimate betrayal” of America’s men and women in uniform, and play into the greedy hands of those who have made millions off the misery and suffering of service members “punished” for exercising their conscience in the face of the forced “vaccine” inoculations.
CROWE LOST HIS BET, BACKING KERRY
Few military figures, active or retired, generate as much disgust and loathing as onetime Republican, retired Adm. William Crowe, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff under President Ronald Reagan.
Political observers tell us that Crowe “cut a deal” with then-candidate Bill Clinton in 1992 to back the struggling Democrat for president. Clinton’s “I loathe the military” quote and record of avoiding the draft was hurting him with military voters.
When the first Bush Administration turned Crowe down for the political plum of ambassador to Great Britain, the obese admiral allegedly “switched sides” and went against his conservative “values” to back a liberal for the admiral’s own selfish reasons.
Sure enough, Crowe’s much-publicized endorsement, blunted much of the criticism of Clinton’s “anti-military” record, and the former Arkansas governor was elected to the first of two terms in the White House.
President Clinton took care of “fat-cat” Crowe and gave him the “prize” the Republicans had refused. The portly admiral, whose stuffed visage makes him look like the quintessential “robber-baron” straight from Hollywood “central casting,” enjoyed his time as ambassador, but as it turned out, he had ideas of making a bigger pile of money down the road.
A CRUEL $CAM AGAINST OUR MILITARY
In Clinton’s second term, Crowe, now gone from London, bought a piece of Bioport in Lansing, Mich., the only facility in the United States licensed to produce and sell so-called anthrax “vaccine.”
It was a sweetheart deal from the start. The Clinton administration pumped many millions of dollars into the troubled facility, even when production was repeatedly shut down by the FDA for “unsanitary conditions.”
Bill Cohen, Clinton’s pliable defense secretary at the time, smoothed the way for a big buck bonanza for Crowe when he ordered all U.S. military members, both active duty, guard and reserves, to submit to the controversial shots or face court-martial and possible prison.
As we have written elsewhere on these pages, it was a $CAM that would have made Al Capone proud! You funnel the federal bucks to just one supplier, make sure you have a “captive customer base” – in this case, the U.S. armed forces – and then make sure you can justify the dollar expense by forcing them to risk their health and careers by allowing themselves to be “vaccinated” with the experimental drug.
It would be a crime bosses’ fondest dream. Making sure the public (U.S. military) had to use his product (let’s say beer), with the taxpayers picking up the tab!
It turned out to be a cruel nightmare for thousands of American military men and women whose lives were forever destroyed by this audacious assault on basic human rights.
“RAT SQUAD” HAS LITTLE EFFECT ON MILITARY VOTE
With a close election in sight, and his bridges to Republicans burned long ago, Crowe joined the “rat squad” of disgruntled retired flag officers who prostituted themselves for self-proclaimed “war hero” John Kerry.
Knowing full well that Kerry, if elected, would have the authority to “waive” the “informed consent” rights of U.S. military members, [word of Judge Sullivan’s upcoming ruling had reached the candidate’s ears] and wanting to ensure the profitability of his Bioport enterprise, Crowe placed his bet on the Massachusetts Democrat. He lost. And in fact, probably cost Kerry more votes than he gained him, such is the notoriety of the bloated admiral among the nation’s armed forces.
We would like to have Crowe come on these pages to explain himself and perhaps – miracles do occur – apologize for what he has done to our armed forces. The admiral would receive equal space to respond to our charges in an unedited way. Somehow, we don’t think he has the guts or integrity to do so, however. We’ll see.
PRAISE FOR OUR STAND AGAINST FORCED SHOTS
Retired Air National Guard Lt. Col. Russ Dingle is one of many “heroes” of the early fight against the forced anthrax shot program.
We have quoted him and his articulate partner, Maj. Tom “Buzz” Rempfer, in other articles we’ve written on this subject.
Now that final victory is in sight, Dingle graciously offered praise for the role MilitaryCorruption.com played in our getting to this goal.
“Your early articles, when few in the media took our side, were instrumental to achieving what we have now done through Judge Sullivan’s ruling.
“MilitaryCorruption.com exposed the ‘money trail’ in the Clinton Administration’s launch of this horrific program and brought Admiral Crowe’s part-ownership of Bioport to national attention,” Dingle said.
“The article GREED AND GUINEA PIGS was a classic of investigative journalism and laid out in a clear and coherent way just why this flawed program came about. Those of us who fought beside you for the past four years salute your staff and web site for it’s courageous stand. God bless each and every one of you.”
[We might add, the article to which Russ referred above is available to our readers at the end of this news story. See “related story box” below.]
