Viruses Author Says the U.S. GAO Investigated the Wrong AIDS Origin
ID — The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) was led astray in
disproving a theory that the AIDS virus was created in a U.S. government
laboratory, according to the author who originally raised the question
Ohio Rep. James A. Traficant requested be studied last July.
Traficant ordered the GAO study following the urging of an HIV-positive
attorney and former Youngstown resident, Boyd E. Graves, who persuaded
the legislator that a flow chart accompanying lengthy National Cancer
Institute (NCI) “Special Virus Cancer Program” reports was a “smoking
to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, the author of an American bestseller, Emerging
Viruses: AIDS & Ebola—Nature, Accident or Intentional?(Tetrahedron
Press, 1996), the book that Graves credits for his “discovery” of
the flow chart, the primary question Graves raised, and GAO investigators
asked, was fundamentally absurd.
Graves was delusional when he conceived the notion that a single
flow chart represented definite proof that the AIDS virus had been
constructed by government contractors. Far more relevant questions
would have been, ‘How was it that HIV/AIDS was able to simultaneously
outbreak on two far removed continents, in two demographically distinct
populations, other than through contaminated vaccines?’ Most scientists
respect this question. Next, ‘Was there any links between firms
that used gay men in New York City and Blacks in central Africa
in the early to mid 1970s as subjects for questionable cancer virus
vaccine experiments, and the contamination of those vaccines with
HIV sequences or AIDS-like viruses found in the laboratories that
supplied chimpanzees used in the vaccine production process?’ Evidencing
the affirmative to these questions is absolutely certain and definitive,”
Dr. Horowitz said.
Horowitz’s research of SVCP contracts proves that Litton Bionetics—a
top U.S. biological weapons contractor, monkey supplier for vaccine
producers, chief administrator of the NCI during the period in question,
and the principle overseer of the SVCP—was contracted to produce
numerous viruses that were descriptively and functionally identical
to the AIDS virus, HIV, as early as 1968. Whether their viral productions
were genetically similar to HIV is a matter for serious inquiry.
cited a number of experts, including Dr. Horowitz, who he claimed
supported his case. However, according to Janet Heinrich, the GAO’s
director of health care and public health issues, none of the experts
actually supported Graves’s theory.
course we were unable to support Graves’s theory,” Dr. Horowitz
said. “It was bogus from the start, and I told him [Graves] so.
What Graves directed the government investigators to ask is, ‘Does
the SVCP flow chart prove that HIV/AIDS was manufactured by a government
lab?’ There were dozens of SVCP contracts that had nothing
to do with developing a “special virus” like HIV/AIDS. Some contracts
did, but they were not central to the GAO’s focus. Graves had everyone
focusing on a complex and largely unintelligible flow chart. I told
him from the beginning he was making a fatal error, that his misdirection
would help the GAO whitewash the matter, and that his actions and
GAO report would undermine future serious scientific inquiries into
the most revealing evidence. And that’s precisely what has happened.”
in an interview published by States News Service (SNS), Heinrich
made light of the “conspiracy theory” advanced by Graves and said,
“We don't get many requests to pursue things of this nature.”
the contradicting pieces of evidence for Traficant, SNS reported,
“was the GAO’s finding that HIV was found in blood samples of an
African man who died in1959. That predates the 1964 start of the
virus cancer program, the GAO report states.”
Horowitz responded to this by saying, “the question about the 1959
strain, as detailed by Zhu et al. as reported in Nature (February
5, 1998), reinforces, they wrote, ‘the role of large-scale vaccination
campaigns’ in the onset of AIDS. In fact, answers to the questions
most serious investigators might pose expose the sharing of contaminated
blood between those who received the monkey virus contaminated polio
vaccines in the 1950s and later the 1974 hepatitis B vaccine partially
produced in chimpanzees before gay men in New York and African blacks.
Litton Bionetics provided the link supplying contaminated chimpanzees
to the Merck Pharmaceutical Company operating in New York labs.
They produced the 1974 hepatitis B vaccine given to gay men there
and mostly women in central Africa. This is most likely how the
AIDS pandemic got started, and these are the avenues of inquiry
I urged the GAO investigators to take when they questioned me.”
fact, the Merck pharmaceutical company, under scrutiny today for
$12 billion of financial improprieties, had leading scientists who
knew their vaccines were contaminated by monkey cancer viruses.
They did little or nothing to stop Merck’s production. In a secreted
interview published by Dr.
“Horowitz ‘On Vaccines,” (Tetrahedron, LLC, 1998; 1-888-508-4787)
Dr. Maurice Hilleman—among the world’s leading vaccine experts—explains
how he brought the AIDS virus to north America in shipments of contaminated
primates destined for vaccine research at Merck. His admissions
fit precisely with Dr. Horowitz’s findings. (To hear this revealing,

Horowitz believes his theory best explains the occurrence of what
Dr. Gerald Myers, chief of the special HIV Sequence Database AIDS
Project of the U.S. Government’s Los Alamos Laboratory, called the
“Big Bang” of the mid-1970s when he identified the sudden simultaneous
emergence of numerous types of HIV around the world at that time.
his book, Dr. Horowitz reviewed dozens of viral vaccine studies
conducted by a narrow network of virologists working for major military–medical
contractors under the auspices of the National Cancer Institute
(NCI) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The text details
bizarre and horrifying experiments, many done in conjunction with
the biological weapons race of the 1960s and early 1970s when Litton
Bionetics officiated the development of countless immune system
ravaging viruses, and supplied monkeys and chimpanzees to firms
that developed an assortment of antidote vaccines for the Department
of Defense and cancer studies.
the end of his book Dr. Horowitz concludes that the speculation
regarding HIV’s evolution and subsequent transmission from African
green monkeys, or even chimpanzees, in the wild to humans, as government
officials first contended and most people believe, is grossly unsupported.
“Far more consideration should be given to a growing body of scientific
evidence supporting a man-made origin, and vaccine transmission,
of HIV/AIDS,” he says. “The greatest problem now is that, for all
we know since we have yet to determine its origin, HIV may still
be transmitting through contaminated vaccines.”
