Federal officials today released a plan instructing states
to deliver smallpox vaccinations should an outbreak occur
due to a terrorist attack.
The plan details how states can inoculate up to one million
people in 10 days after confirming only a single smallpox
infection in the entire nation. Medical professionals, academics
and state health officials have expressed doubts about the
effectiveness, timing and costs of the plan issued by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Dr. Len Horowitz, a healthcare researcher who recently authored
a book on deadly viruses, noted the possibility of the Bush
Administration using a biological attack to further an agenda
of suppressing civil liberties.
"This is standard Machiavellian theory in practice,"
said Horowitz. "These political and public health problems
are created to effect outcomes that have been prepared for
in advance and are consistent with economic, political and
ideological orientations consistent with population control,
better known as genocide. In summary, it is managed chaos
and very deadly."
According to press reports, the CDC's plan does not specifically
say what kind of attack would warrant a nationwide vaccination
program, nor does it specify who would issue the decision
to begin one.
The CDC's vaccination guide also neglects to address the
"vexing and politically delicate issue" of whether
to vaccinate emergency personnel or public health workers,
the New York Times reported. Health and human services secretary
Tommy G. Thompson expects a decision from the White House
on this by the end of September.
According to the Washington Post, the number of medical
personnel to be vaccinated ranges from 20,000, as recommended
by one CDC advisory panel, to another proposal's call for
The plan does specify 75 million doses of the vaccine in
the U.S. stockpile are to be delivered in one day and 280
million doses within one week.
It also provides guidelines for maintaining security and
order at clinics in the event of an unruly, panic-stricken
crowd, and advises on location and transportation issues.
Busses or subways might transport people to shopping malls
or sports arenas for vaccination, according to the CDC guide.
MORE BIOWARFARE DEVELOPMENTS
FTW's reporting on the mysterious post-9-11 deaths of 15
microbiologists, some of whom have done research on infectious
diseases, has drawn the attention of and sometimes questionable
rebuttals by major publications in the U.S. and Canada.
The New York Times last month expended 7,800 words in an
effort to explain away these recent deaths as coincidence.
However, the announcement of the government's ambiguously
worded plan for voluntary smallpox inoculations provides
more reason to question government motives in its support
of the Model Emergency Health Powers Act (MEHPA). MEHPA
has now been passed in 14 states, according to The American
Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). [See FTW's previous

MEHPA makes it a criminal offense to refuse a state-ordered
vaccination or medical procedure. In some states where it
has already become law, refusing a compulsory vaccination
is a felony. States have some leeway in determining the
severity of the penalties, but in all cases the act permits
the immediate confiscation and/or destruction of any private
property without any procedural review in the event of a
The act made its debut last year after research at Johns
Hopkins and authorship by a Georgetown University law professor.
It is strongly supported by the Department of Health and
Human Services, which doles out federal funds for state
medical assistance programs.
MEHPA has been passed in Utah, South Dakota, Louisiana,
Minnesota, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Hampshire, Vermont,
Maine, Delaware, South Carolina, Arizona and Hawaii. The
legislation has been introduced in California, Nevada, New
York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia,
and North Carolina.
WEST NILE VIRUS
The recent, rapid spread of the West Nile Virus has raised
concerns from health researchers that the virus might be
either a test model for the spread of a disease agent, or
a psychological preparation to condition the populace to
be more receptive of state-mandated vaccinations.
NewsMax.com reported today that a letter sent in 1995 by
President Clinton's CDC director listed West Nile Virus
as "one of nearly two-dozen forms of viruses, retroviruses,
bacteria and fungi provided by the U.S. to Iraq in the 1980s."
Earlier this month, Sen. Patrick Leahy described as "credible"
reports that outbreaks in the U.S. of West Nile were an
act of bioterror, and he suggested the attack's purpose
was to test the nation's defenses against a biological attack.
CIVIL LIBERTIES AND PUBLIC
There is an abundance of credible information to justify
concern about the impact of recent government actions on
civil liberties and the overall health of the population.
Smallpox vaccinations contain significant risks for illness
or death for people with certain skin or immune system disorders,
cancer patients, pregnant women, and babies under a year
old. The New York Times reported that millions of Americans
have health disorders which put them at risk should they
need or be required to have a smallpox vaccination.
On June 12, President Bush signed the $4.6 billion Bioterrorism
Response Act of 2002, which has allocated billions of dollars
to major pharmaceutical companies for rapid development
of new vaccines. This, despite the fact that since 9-11
a number of press sources have reported that the U.S. government
has already acquired some 300 million doses of smallpox
vaccine. The U.S. population is currently 288 million.
Last spring the FDA eliminated standard requirements that
new vaccines be tested on humans for efficacy prior to use
in the general population.
Also this year the federal Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals
ruled that it was legal to forcibly drug a criminal suspect
who has not been convicted even if the suspect had not exhibited
Today's smallpox vaccine announcement combined with MEHPA
demonstrates that the U.S. government, through the state
agencies dependent upon federal funding, will soon be in
the position to compel Americans to take vaccines that might
not work and pose a significant health risk. The government
will also be able to impose legal punishment on those who
According to the White House's proposal for a Department
of Homeland Security, the federal government is also asking
for technologies to determine via "non invasive"
measures whether or not members of the population have received
