Mycoplasma Experiments Conducted in Texas Prisons

Military Operations

The Geneva convention prohibits the development and testing of biological weapons, otherwise known as germ warfare agents, and similar provisions are specified in the Nuremberg Codes. Nonetheless, some mycoplasmas have been engineered and/or laboratory modified for use as biological/germ warfare agents. In 1970, the Department of Defense made an appropriations request for 10 million dollars into a 5 year study to develop immune system ravaging micro-organisms for germ warfare. (See Public Law 91-171 and associated Hearings Before A Committee On Appropriations House of Representatives Ninety-First Congress, page 129.) Unlike their chemical weapon counterpart, a germ warfare agent is a contagious pathogen that can affect military and civilian, adults and children, without regard to the extent of direct involvement in an armed conflict or terrorist attack.


In the case of Iraq, a citizen by the name of Jawad Al-Aubaidi headed the mycoplasma program at the University of Baghdad, although he was trained in the USA at Cornell University and Plum Island. He would be a very interesting person to talk with about mycoplasma payloads on the SCUD skyburst warheads which were used by Iraq during desert storm, and about military gulf war illness which directly simulates the civilian chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome symptom-set. Currently, class-action litigation has been initiated against numerous American and foreign companies that reportedly, and in violation of the Trading With the Enemy Act (50 USC Appx 1 et seq.), sold Iraq material and equipment for advanced biological weapons systems. See the Report of former Senator Donald W. Reigle Jr., and S. Hrg. 103-900, 25 May 1994.

Although no biological warfare detection capabilities were deployed during the gulf conflict, the Defense Department continues to position that germ and/or biological warfare agents were not used by Saddam Hussein. However, during hearings held by the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee on gulf war veterans illnesses, an internal DOD memo was exposed which ordered officials at the Pentagon to flag declassified documents which could embarrass the Department of Defense or seemed to confirm the use or detection of biological agents and allow an investigation team to decide whether the information would ever be released.

In like fashion, hundreds of thousands of military medical records and General Norman Schwarzkopf's daily logs of activity during the gulf war have mysteriously disappeared from Defense Department custody, and were therefore conveniently unavailable for scrutiny during the Senate Committee hearings in which DOD witnesses were allowed to submit unsworn 'testimony.' According to a report by the GAO, which is charged with evaluating efficient use of governmental resources, the investigation into gulf war illness presents an issue of questionable integrity. The GAO report also criticized the Presidential Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans Illnesses for virtually discounting any link between biological agents and troop complaints.


Astonishingly, and for twenty years previous to its curious and abrupt repeal only November of last year, our federal statutes have provided that the Secretary of the Department of Defense can conduct germ warfare experiments on unsuspecting civilian populations within the United States; Title 50 of the United States Code, Chapter 32 (CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE PROGRAM), Section 1520 provides:


1520 Use of human subjects for testing of chemical or biological agents by Department of Defense; accounting to Congressional committees with respect to experiments and studies; notification of local civilian officials

(a) Not later than thirty days after final approval within the Department of Defense of plans for any experiment or study to be conducted by the Department of Defense, whether directly or under contract, involving the use of human subjects for the testing of chemical or biological agents, the Secretary of Defense shall supply the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and House of Representatives with a full accounting of such plans for such experiment or study, and such experiment or study may then be conducted only after the expiration of the thirty-day period beginning on the date such accounting is received by such committees.

(b)(1) Secretary of Defense may not conduct any test or experiment involving the use of any chemical or biological agent on civilian populations unless local civilian officials in the area in which the test or experiment is to be conducted are notified in advance of such test or experiment, and such test or experiment may then be conducted only after the expiration of the thirty-day period beginning on the date of such notification (2) Paragraph (1) shall apply to tests and experiments conducted by Department of Defense personnel and tests and experiments conducted on behalf of the Department of Defense by contractors.

Of course, not only does this enabling legislation run against all morality and natural law, but it runs against man's own laws with respect to human rights and constitutionality. Curiously, certain of the referenced symptom-set diseases have occurred throughout history in a sporadic and/or familial context. As an example, a well-known outbreak of Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), otherwise known as yuppie flu, chronic epstein-barr virus, Iceland disease, lupus, chronic mononeucleosis, sarcoidosis and a dozen other overlapping symptom-set labels, occurred during the mid-1980's in Incline Village - an upscale and secluded area of Nevada adjacent to Lake Tahoe. Likewise, this type of incidence phenomenon is neither atypical to other of the symptom-set disease labels such as alzheimers and creutzfeldt-jakob disease

The pattern of these manifestations, together with the unholy and unconstitutional authority memorialized in 50 USC 1520 and the diabolical nature of mycoplasmas, are pieces of a puzzle which unverifiably points to open-air testing of biological and germ warfare agents within the United States boarders. Similar to the Gospel, each person must ultimately discern the truth in their own heart, and plausible deniability will be a problematic obstacle for many. However, the precedent and propensity for this type of outrage is not lacking in annals such as agent orange, Jacob's ladder, and Ms. Every's boys (syphilis experiments on black males).


Among other things, the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution protects freedom of speech. Throughout history, this precept has surfaced as a defining characteristic of the American way of life.  However, the right to free speech yields when a claim of national security is positioned. In this context, the potential for abuse is enormous and specious national security claims can be used to cover-up criminal wrongdoing by a handful of top-level, above the law, cigar-smoking, DOD politicians, scientists and equipment contractors who secretly navigate in the arena of germ/biological warfare instrumentation.
