A REPORT ON THE ABUSE OF POWER

Editor: Anthony C. Sutton December 1993 Vol. 12, No.12

BIOLOGICAL WARFARE

AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS

A once free United states has become an "us" versus "them" society. Similar to the early Hitler years in Germany (burning of the Reichstag = Waco massacre) with touches of Stalinist horror (extermination of the "kulaks.")

The late Gary Allen (of None Dare Call It Conspiracy fame) used to cite Nelson Rockefeller's habit of terming Americans "peasants." But Gary had no idea how far elitist contempt for the "peasants" had gone even in the late 1960's.

Compare Waco with Somalia. The FBI and BATF used tanks to destroy Koresh and his followers. The U.S. deliberately used tanks against American citizens.

In Somalia the U.S. sent in Rangers and U.S. troops without armored backup although assaults without tanks and self propelled artillery are doomed to failure. The White House threw away 7 American lives using McNamara "rules of engagement" in Somalia. In Waco the "rules of engagement" concept was thrown out the window.

Disregard for American life is emphasized in domestic use of biological warfare against American citizens. Part of the story was in Phoenix Letter (November 1992.) This described Congressional approval for U.S. Army development of an artificial AIDS virus in 1970. This shocker is part of a larger story.

Here's another installment of the domestic biological warfare story:

U. S. Army-CIA jointly used biological agents against American citizens inside the U.S.

These agents included: bacillus subtilis, smallpox and AIDS.

The Federal Government has concealed then lied about these programs and placed the blame elsewhere, including the former Soviet Union.

State Department attempted to counter an exaggerated Soviet propaganda war using these programs but tripped up because State did not know how much authentic information had leaked inside the U.S.

The Phonix Letter is mailed monthly and maintains a conservative free-market economics philosophy.

Fort Dietrich Biological Programs In The 1960's

Fort Dietrich in Maryland is the U.S. biological warfare base. Originally called U.S. Army Biological Laboratories it is now labeled U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID)

The Army maintains a Special Operations Division (SOD) on the Fort Dietrich base with a formal operating agreement with CIA (Memorandum signed in May 1952.) Both CIA and Army have covered their tracks well but some original documents survive to outline a horrific story.

In the early 60's U.S. Army SOD personnel used specially designed suitcases to spray unsuspecting American civilians with bacillus subtilis at the Greyhound Bus Terminals in Washington, Chicago and San Francisco. Similar operations were conducted at airports in Washington D.C., New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The number of one way tickets sold at time of release was used to estimate distribution of the bacterial agents. (Bacillus subtilis can be bought at biological supply houses. It is not listed as a pathogen, but can cause respiratory infections, blood poisoning and food poisoning.)

According to declassified Army documents the Greyhound terminals in San Francisco and Chicago were the location for "six operatives to launch covert attacks" spread over 7 days. Specially designed suitcases sprayed bacteria into crowded terminals for maximum exposure. Photographs were taken and other Army personnel "covertly collected air samples in close proximity to the passengers" to determine if the civilians had been infected. (See photographs)

Later tests were repeated with smallpox a2ents, grown in large quantities and converted to a lethal powder for spraying. Senate investigation in 1975 revealed close cooperation between SOD and CIA:

"CIA association with Fort Dietrich involved the Special Operations Division (SOD) of that facility. This division was responsible for developing special applications for biological warfare agents and toxins. Its principal customer was the U.S. Army. Its concern was with the development of both suitable agents and delivery mechanisms for use in paramilitary situations. Both standard biological warfare agents and biologically derived toxins were investigated by the division."

The Senate Committee found the CIA had covered its tracks to conceal this unconstitutional activity from the American public. The Senate Committee stated "Although some CIA originated documents have been found in the project files it is clear that only a very limited documentation of activities took place."

An extract from a U.S. Army report details why smallpox was selected as the agent of choice." Its "attractive" features are listed as:

1. Smallpox is highly infectious with close contact. It spreads readily from an infected person to susceptible individuals.

2. A long incubation period of relatively constant duration permits the operatives responsible to leave the country before the first case is diagnosed

3. The duration of illness for those who recover is relatively long. Although the Federal Government claims that the 1972 treaty banning biological weapons stopped further use of Fort Dietrich we know that the U.S. Amy applied for $1.4 million appropriation to EXPAND germ warfare testing ability in the early 1980's. Senator James Sasser objected and it is unlikely that the appropriation went through. It could have been handled on the "black budget."

THE ORIGINATOR OF AIDS

In July 1969 Dr. MacArthur, Director of the U.S. Army Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) appeared before Congress (the Appropriations Committee of the House) and stated:

" within a period of 5-10 years it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired."

This synthetic anent is AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency syndrome virus or HIV-1) ARPA requested $10 million to develop AIDS, 10 years before the virus was identified in the field.

Dr. MacArthur added, "It is a highly controversial issue and there are many who believe such research should not be undertaken lest it lead to another method of massive killing of large populations."

From 1961 to 1968 while this artificial biological agent was under discussion in the pentagon, Robert McNamara was Secretary of Defense. Clark Clifford (of BCCI notoriety) took over as Secretary in 1969.

On October 2, 1970 just 15 months after Dr. MacArthur requested an apl2rol2riation for AIDS development, Robert McNamara, now World Bank President, made a speech to international bankers in which he identified population growth as "the gravest issue that the world faces over the years ahead."

In his speech to the bankers McNamara argued that population growth was leading to instability, that a 10 billion world population would not be "controllable."

Said McNamara, "It is not a world that any of us would want to live in. Is such a world inevitable? It is not sure but there are two possible ways by which a world of 10 billion people can be averted. Either the current birth rates must come down more quickly or the current death rates must go up. There is no other way."

In brief, Robert McNamara was in the final decision making role for development of AIDS at the very time he was contemplating the idea that "world death rates must got up." THIS IS MORE THAN COINCIDENCE.

Our conclusion is that Robert McNamara knowingly encouraged development of AIDS as a means to reduce the worlds' Population. It is difficult to arrive at any other Conclusion.

New From Russia

Slowly bits and pieces of hidden history are leaking from Russia. Official U.S. history is that the U.S. was fighting only Vietnamese in Vietnam. It now appears Soviets were there as well, fighting U.S. Soviets had casualties, so far 16 admitted killed in action.

This explains the heat this editor came under with National Suicide: Military Aid To The Soviet Union. A detailed criticism of our technological aid to the Soviet Union while the Soviets were aiding the Vietnamese kill Americans. No wonder we came under so much pressure to keep quiet! Our big businessmen were actively committing treason! If the Soviets were fighting in Vietnam, then the Soviets were an active enemy, not a passive onlooker.

Henry Kisssinger and Robert McNamara won't look too good in the light of history when the full story comes out. The Best Enemy Money Can Buy is still available from Liberty House Press 1-800-343-6180. (It's a rewrite and update of the original National Suicide: Military Aid To The Soviet Union which caused a storm 20 years ago.)

Soviet Union Charges Pentagon With Aids Development

This information became known to the Soviets and in October 1985 the Soviet Union mounted a world wide propaganda campaign. Aids had been manufactured at Fort Dietrich Maryland by the Pentagon. The initial information was planted in a Soviet backed newspaper in India and then surfaced in more than 30 media sources world wide. The report was backed by an East German report by Professor Jacob Segal of Humbolt University, East Berlin. Segal argued that the AIDS virus is "the product of an abortive experiment carried out at a laboratory to develop biological warfare means."

This Soviet propaganda campaign was discounted in the West (this Editor included.) It was beyond the realm of rationality that the U.S. would develop a killer agent such as AIDS.

Professor Segal appears to hold the view that it was "accidental" i.e. an "abortive experiment." This position we also held for a while, until the McNamara speech of October 1970 surfaced.

In any event in the late 80's the U.S. State Department ran a rebuttal campaign to the Soviet charges. However State was unaware that the Congress had published Dr. MacArthur's requests and statements so the rebuttal fell flit on its face. The State Department for example claims the U.S. Army had never used Fort Dietrich as a biological warfare base. This is just not true. Further State apparently had no knowledge of the McNamara contemplation of rising death rates by design.

Conclusions

1. CIA - U.S. Army undertook field tests with bacillus subtilis and smallpox against American civilians.

2. There is no question that the Army received funds from Congress for AIDS development and this was probably undertaken at Fort Dietrich.

The AIDS release could have been accidental but we discount this for several reasons. Initial cases came from Africa and Haiti, not the United States. Second, Robert McNamara had simultaneously called for increase in world death rates. This suggests a deliberate policy of controlled release of the AIDS virus.

3. The Soviets obtained the information and used it for a propaganda campaign.

The State Department rebuttal was ineffective because State had no idea how much information had already been made public.

Postscript

Phoenix Letter has reported a new string of AIDS virus, much tougher, much more dangerous and possibly airborne. In early 1990 Science reported that AIDS researcher Dr. Robert Gallo had tested an altered AIDS virus, one that could infect' cells previously left uninfected by the early AIDS strain. This new strain was reported as infecting epithelia] cells thus raising the possibility that the AIDS virus is now airborne.

We find it extraordinary that any risks are taken today, after the Cold War has ended with these agents. What is the rationale in developing stronger- airborne strains?

ROBERT McNAMARA AND ENVELOPMENT OF AIDS

December Phoenix Letter we described how the U.S. Army (ARPA) developed the AIDS virus with ten million dollars voted by Congress in 1969.

The Secretary of Defense at that time, and responsible for approval of the 1969-1970 budget, was Robert McNamara, followed by Clark Clifford of BCCI notoriety. The final decisions for the AIDS program was made by McNamara and Clifford.

The standard biography of Robert McNamara Promise and Power (The life and time of Robert McNamara) by Deborah Shapley (Little Brown, Boston 1993) has interesting comments on the McNamara view of world over population and the critical need to reduce world population i.e. an excellent rationale for development of a virus resistant to cure.

In 1966 McNamara warned that world population was growing faster than gross national product and that the World Bank had a dominant role to play.

In 1969 McNamara's speech to the Governors of the University of Notre Dame cited the population explosion as more significant than the danger of nuclear war. "Casting its shadow over all this scene is the mushrooming cloud of the population explosion" (page 480).

McNamara extended the extraordinary thesis that "the children who were dying were fortunate, for the millions of those who lived languidly on were stunted in their bodies and cripples in their minds."

Shapley points out that inside the World Bank these McNamara views on population sounded almost nutty" and many wondered where McNamara had gotten these ideas.

But this was precisely the time when McNamara moved from Secretary of Defense to take over the World Bank. The same year, 1969, when the U.S. Army went before Con2ress to ask for $10 million to develol2 an AIDS virus.

By 1973 (page 5 1 0) McNamara had steered the World Bank to explore the cycle of overpopulation, insufficient food and poverty and in the Fall of 1973 at the annual meeting of World Bank Governors in Nairobi, Kenya outlined his QUANTITATIVE GOALS for population. "Nairobi" became synonymous with the McNamara population reduction five year plan. Coincidentally Nairobi and Kenya became initial focal points for the AIDS virus. Kenya and Uganda in East Africa is where the epidemic began and where today some 50% or more of the population is infected.

In 1977 McNamara spoke at MIT and argued that world population was exploding at an unacceptable rate. McNamara was so intensely carried away with the ideas of population explosion that he reportedly (at a lunch meeting) started to scribble numbers on the dining room table cloth, "there was no stopping his verbal torrent or his emotion." The table cloth was tinged with scribbled numbers and "looked like an artifact left by an ancient visitor from another world." (page 560)

The Shapely book has a great deal more on the McNamara fervor to control world population. While development of an AIDS virus may appear to most of us as tragically even murderously wrong, to a ideologue like McNamara it would appear to be opportunity to solve what he saw as potential disaster.

Matching the time frames and the opportunities for decision making there is a least a prima facie case, well worth investigating, that Robert McNamara knowingly and deliberately encouraged development of the AIDS virus.

Phoenix Letter views the McNamara program, continued by Clark Clifford, as genocide.

BOOK REPORT     AIDS: THE UNNECESSARY EPIDEMIC

(Stanley Monteith, MD Order from Aids Book, 618 Frederick Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95062 $17.00 post.)

Dr. Monteith was one of the very first to recognize the significance of AIDS and has devoted over 20 years of his life to investigation and warning about the dangerous nature of the disease to everyone. We distinctly remember meeting with Dr. Monteith as far back as 1981 when he prophetically laid out to this Editor the epidemic potential in AIDS. This long before even African Governments had recognized the killer potential.

This book, excellently written and produced, contains Dr. Monteith's conclusions and is far in advance of other AIDS books simply because he is well aware of the elitist nature of world control. The neglect of government and politics to face up to the disease and its implications is clearly outlined and we are left with the question is this deliberate neglect to destroy the United States? Although Dr. Monteith does not touch on the documentary evidence published in Phoenix Letter concerning the roles of U.S. Army (Fort Detrich) and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara (indeed this would be irrelevant for the medical approach) Dr. Monteith's evidence is entirely consistent with the argument that there is deliberation in the spread of AIDS.

More surprising we learn in great detail how the Gay Lobbies are insistent in policies and actions that encourage the epidemic.

You will read that Congressmen Panetta (Clinton Cabinet) and Congressman Waxman of Los Angeles are associated with policies that promote the epidemic. How American Medical Association, Centers for Disease Control, and the Surgeon General attack any doctor who dare propose monitoring or controlling the disease. The numbers of HIV infected are just not known, they are mere crude underestimates because Government refuses to adopt procedures that would give us a realistic count.

For your personal protection we urge you to read this book. It will be a harsh dose of realism to counter the propaganda pap issued by Government and AIDS lobbies.

AIDS Was Deliberately Created By the United States Government

AIDS is a synthetic biological agent, knowingly and deliberately created by the United States Government. Development funds were not included in any secret "black budget," they were openly voted on by Congress.

In 1969 Department of Defense representatives appeared before the Defense Subcommittee of the House and requested $10 million in 1970 DOD Appropriations for design and manufacture of a synthetic AIDS virus.

Specifically, on Tuesday, July 1, 1969, Dr. MacArthur of the Army Advanced Research Project Agency made the following statement to the Subcommittee:

"There are two things about the biological field agent I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technical surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly and eminent biologists believe that within a period of five to ten years it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired."

MacArthur later submitted more detail to the Congressional Committee. The key points were:

1. Up to this point, (1969) all biological agents are naturally occurring.

2. It is possible to make a "new infective micro-organism" that would be "refractory to the immulogical and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious diseases."

3. A research program would take six years and $10 million.

4. The program should be initiated through the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council (NAS-NRC).

5. The matter was discussed with NAS-NRC and "tentative plans were made to initiate the program.

The report added: "It is a highly controversial issue and there are many who believe such research should not be undertaken lest it lead to another method of 'massive killing of large populations."

By 1972, the World Health Organization called on scientists to work on such viruses "to see if viruses can in fact exert selective effects on the immune function." (WHO is supposedly devoted to "health" progress and financed in part by the U.S. taxpayer on this supposition. See Bulletin of World Health Organization, 1972, 47:257-63.)

Dr. Theodore Strecker, a health care consultant, has tracked the story of AIDS through WHO and collaboration with U.S. Army Laboratories in Fort Detrick, Maryland (now National Cancer Institute.)

Apparently, the AIDS virus was released in Uganda, Haiti, Brazil and Japan about 1972-74. This was not an accident. It was deliberate release. (See Who Murdered Africa by William Campbell Douglas, M.D., P.O. Box 1568, Clayton, GA 30525.) AIDS entered the United States through the New York Blood Center/Centers for Disease Control in the late 1970's.

In conclusion, we note that Congress knowingly, voted funds for this development program in the 1970 Appropriations.

A REPORT ON THE ABUSE OF POWER

Editor: Anthony C. Sutton March 1994 Vol. 13, No.3

AIDS Epidemic Cover Up

HIV-AIDS is a virtually out of control epidemic with government officials and gay lobbies jointly imposing censorship to hide the true picture from the American public.

Half a dozen books have emerged in recent months which tell similar stories: gay lobbies control AIDS policy and only interested in preserving rights, whatever happens to the rest of America.

Because of their united lockstep, political power gays dominate the AIDS political scene. Gay rights have absolute precedence over public health.

There is disturbing evidence that the virus is transmitted by more than sexual contact and blood. It is certainly carried by (one testing procedure is based on saliva) and may be airborne. Initial experiments demonstrate airborne capability. Government officials dominated by gays refuse to follow up with research on these initial findings, because the gay lobby fm monitoring and quarantine. Right now AIDS has the potential to wipe out the world but is treated as an infectious disease. Doctors cannot routinely monitor, test and report, they are restricted by official limitations not applied to other infectious diseases.

We attach a list of recent books well worth reading that spring the lid on a criminally negligent policy. Some of our conclusions from these books:

1. HOW MANY AIDS CASUALTIES

Government has no really accurate number of HIV-AIDS infections because gay lobbies vehemently oppose any form of monitoring or reporting. The latest government number of I million HIV infections is guess work, this is a low end guesstimate. But even official guesstimates are reporting 50 to over 100 million infected within five years.

Kenya in Africa has 50-70% infection rates in cities, rates unknown in the countryside. New York Times reports Kenyan hospital system overloaded, two AIDS patients to a bed, many just placed in corridors.

Dr. Lorraine Day, former surgeon at San Francisco General Hospital, and outspoken critic of head-in-the-sand government policies, states the epidemic has the potential "to wipe out the world."

Gay-lesbian lobbies/outlets report much lower numbers than even the government.

Example: San Francisco Examiner- (19 January 1994) column "AIDSWEEK," by Lisa M. Krieger, reports 339,000 "cases" in U.S. compared to the official 1 million, itself low. The same column reports 3 million world wide "cases," a more accurate figure is well over 10 million.

2. HOW CAN ONE BECOME INFECTED?

This is where the politics of HIV-AIDS becomes murky and public health abandoned in favor of special interests. Back in 1981, San Francisco and New York medical authorities determined that gay bathhouses were killer institutions where the AIDS virus was flourishing and passed through homosexual contact. Gay organizations fought against closure, the bathhouses ultimately closed only because their patrons were killed off one by one by the disease.. Gays placed their civil rights ahead of public health and paid the price. At this point, infection was limited to gays.

Then the blood supply became infected with the virus. Gays protested because blood organizations bypassed gay areas for blood collection. By early 1980 it was generally thought that infection could only take place sexually or through blood transfer.

Research into infection routes was blocked by the gay lobbies. Dr. G. Johnson of Stanford Medical Center, in 1988, determined that HIV could be transmitted through the air. Dr. Johnson asked San Francisco AIDS unit to request further research at the federal level on airborne transmission.

SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAL REFUSED TO PURSUE THIS LINE OF RESEARCH.  Why? Because S.F. General policy on AIDS is essentially influenced by active gay lobbies who fear monitoring and quarantine. If AIDS is determined as transmitted only by sexual contact and blood supply, then proposals for quarantine can be fought off. However, if AIDS can be passed through the air or through saliva then the general population is placed at risk and public health measures will be instituted to limit contact. Gay districts will be isolated. Restaurants and facilities employing gays will be affected. Obviously the community, seen as the source of HIV-AIDS, will face quarantine.

Similarly, gays have always denied that the virus can be passed through kissin- i.e. saliva and most doctors advise this is unlikely. Again, research organizations have not investigated saliva transmission because their policy is biased by gay organizations. When Phoenix Letter advised its readers in 1993 to keep out of high priced San Francisco restaurants, the item was picked up by the San Francisco Chronicle and labeled hysteria.

What the Chronicle refused to report is that an AIDS test system manufactured by Saliva Diagnostic System Inc. uses saliva as the vehicle for mass testing. Rocky Mountain News (November 20, 1993) reported that the company had a contract with a Hungarian health organization to undertake the largest mass testing ever, using its OMNI-SAL system at a Budapest rock concert. Saliva is used for testing in Hungary but in the United States is not considered a means of transmission.

An obvious public health measure, not undertaken at this date in 1994, is to determine the parameters of HIV-AIDS infection.

Certainly, HIV-AIDS can be passed through sexual contact, blood supply and contact, saliva and urine. These are definitely established as transmission routes.

'There is also preliminary evidence that HIV-AIDS can be transmitted through aerosol (coughing droplets) and can be airborne. The federal government has been grossly negligent in this area. We suspect that political pressure by gay lobbies has stilled the research.

Gay pressure is so irrational in San Francisco that hospitals cannot put AIDS patients in separate waiting rooms to prevent transmission of airborne diseases as tuberculosis, fatal to AIDS patients. Gays fear stigma of isolation and rather accept the risk of possibly fatal infection from tuberculosis and other infectious diseases.

This confusion of civil rights with public health is killing people and very few public health officials or medical doctors have the guts to stand up and tell the truth, that HIV-AIDS may possibly use numerous transmission routes.

3. DOES HIV-AIDS MUTATE'?

We are not dealing with the same HIV-AIDS strains today that were encountered in the early 1980's. The strains are tougher, mutate more easily and even have a facility to convert antibodies (generated by the body to fight off disease) into the virus itself i.e. convert the bodies defense into AIDS allies.

This ability of the AIDS virus to turn the tables on the human immune system has never before been reported in any virus or bacterium.

San Francisco virologist, Dr. Jay Levy at University of California, who discovered the phenomenon says, "This indicates on the molecular level how some viruses are able to learn to escape the immune system."

This ability is significant because it frustrates efforts to find an anti-AIDS vaccine. The virus can quickly change the molecular make up of its outer envelope.

This suggests we are many years from an AIDS vaccine because researchers do not yet know what the vaccine has to do to defeat the virus.

We are looking at 100 million infections within six years so the urgency is obvious, AT LEAST TO PHOENIX LETTER, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS STALLING ON RESEARCH.

As the virus originated within the U.S. army laboratories it Fort Deitrick, Maryland, the federal government at least owes its citizens the courtesy of speedy cures. What we are getting is denial and double-talk.

This is only part of the story we have uncovered. You won't get it from establishment media simply because they are scared of creating panic. Our view is that citizens would rather know and handle panic if and when it comes. Historically, citizens have always performed to higher standards than politicians expect.

What is urgently needed is congressional hearings which are not influenced by gay lobbies. Gay rights may have to be subordinated to overall public health welfare in the interests of the majority. This statement will probably bring vitriolic criticism upon the head of the Editor but with 200,000 U.S. citizens dead and at least 1 million infected, we have to make some tough decisions.

Note on Publishers

Every one of the above books (except Carol Pogash) is published by a small publishing house or is self published. Every one of them deserves widespread distribution.

In the last decade the New York publishing industry has shrunk. In January, Harcourt Brace, a major New York house reduced its editorial staff to just two editors. Self important New York publishing is suffering from its own myopia, an incestuous industry rooted in establishment thinking is filling rapidly, its place taken by small publishers scattered around the United States.

Once all publishing was centered in New York. The above AIDS books were published in California, Georgia and Texas. The publishing aroma in New York is so stifling, reflecting self important pompous editors, that we rarely find a New York published book worthy of favorable review. Gary Taubes Weird Science (Radon House, reviewed in Phoenix Letter, December 1983) is typical of the trash generated by old line once proud houses as Random House.

Book review: Carol Pogash, AS REAL AS IT GETS (Birch Lane Press, New York, 1992.)

San Francisco General Hospital is the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. This is the story of the political, medical and ethical battle that has been fought at San Francisco General Hospital over the past ten years.

This is a disturbing account, how HIV-AIDS has generated a complex reaction of fear, heroism, irrational behavior, and denial fought over the bodies of dead and dying AIDS patients.

Here are a few highlights we gleaned from Pogash:

* Nurse Jane Doe was infected with AIDS while caring for patients at S.F. General on the job occupational injury. The City of Francisco tried for years to deny compensation, bury its head in the sand. City Hill didn't want to face the reality of the epidemic.

* Dr. Lorraine Day, an orthopedic surgeon, smart, tough, realistic, dedicated, was demonized by the gay Community because she wanted to protect the medical staff and the general public.

* Incoming patients, about one quarter of whom have AIDS cannot be routinely tested because the gay community considers testing an infringement of their rights. Anyone who points out that non-gays also have rights is viciously attacked.

* AIDS policy is largely established by the gay community that places its own interest first and foremost and to hell with the general public, this in a city saturated" with AIDS.

* Dr. Lorraine Day, "The whole thing is politics. If this had started out in the heterosexual community the disease would be under control ... we've got two different things now, we've got gay rights to have proper jobs, housing and all that and we've got a deadly disease that can kill the world, and the two are being mixed up."

* Dr. Day was abused, threatened, harassed, EVEN TARGETED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER BECAUSE SHE TOLD THE TRUTH. And she was out there all by herself because no one at San Francisco General would support her - even though they knew the truth.

God Help Us!


Late Press Note

Since writing, above, we have heard from Dr. Johnson at Stanford Medical Center. Dr. Johnson sent his research report on aerosol/airborne transmission of the HIV virus. We will summarize for the April Phoenix Letter.
