AIDS: A U.S.- Made Monster?




PREFACE

In an extensive article in the Summer-Autumn 1990 issue of "Top
Secret", Prof J. Segal and Dr. L. Segal outline their theory that
AIDS is a man-made disease, originating at Pentagon
bacteriological warfare labs at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
"Top Secret" is the international edition of the German magazine
Geheim and is considered by many to be a sister publication to
the American Covert Action Information Bulletin (CAIB). In fact,
Top Secret carries the Naming Names column, which CAIB is
prevented from doing by the American government, and which names
CIA agents in different locations in the world. The article,
named "AIDS: US-Made Monster" and subtitled "AIDS - its Nature
and its Origins," is lengthy, has a lot of professional
terminology and is dotted with footnotes.

AIDS FACTS

"The fatal weakening of the immune system which has given AIDS
its name (Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome)," write the
Segals, "has been traced back to a destruction or a functional
failure of the T4-lymphocytes, also called \'helper cells\', which
play a regulatory role in the production of antibodies in
the immune system." In the course of the illness, the number of
functional T4-cells is reduced greatly so that new anti-bodies
cannot be produced and the defenceless patient remains exposed to
a range of infections that under other circumstances would have
been harmless. Most AIDS patients die from opportunistic
infections rather than from the AIDS virus itself. The initial
infection is characterized by diarrhea, erysipelas and
intermittent fever. An apparent recovery follows after 2-3 weeks,
and in many cases the patient remains without symptoms and
functions normally for years. Occasionally a swelling of the
lymph glands, which does not affect the patient\'s well-being,
can be observed. After several years, the pre-AIDS stage, known
as ARC (Aids- Related Complex) sets in. This stage includes
disorders in the digestive tract, kidneys and lungs. In most
cases it develops into full-blown AIDS in about a year, at which
point opportunistic illnesses occur. Parallel to this syndrome,
disorders in various organ systems occur, the most severe in the
brain, the symptoms of which range from motoric disorders to
severe dementia and death. This set of symptoms, say the Segals,
is identical in every detail with the Visna sickness which occurs
in sheep, mainly in Iceland. (Visna means tiredness in
Icelandic). However, the visna virus is not pathogenic for human
beings. The Segals note that despite the fact that AIDS is
transmitted only through sexual intercourse, blood transfusions
and non- sterile hypodermic needles, the infection has spread
dramatically. During the first few years after its discovery, the
number of AIDS patients doubled every six months, and is still
doubling every 12 months now though numerous measures have been
taken against it. Based on these figures, it is estimated that in
the US, which had 120,000 cases of AIDS at the end of 1988,
900,000 people will have AIDS or will have died of it by the end
of 1991. It is also estimated that the number of people infected
is at least ten times the number of those suffering from an acute
case of AIDS. That in the year 1995 there will be between 10-14
million cases of AIDS and an additional 100 million people
infected, 80 percent of them in the US, while a possible
vaccination will not be available before 1995 by the most
optimistic estimates. Even when such vaccination becomes
available, it will not help those already infected. These and
following figures have been reached at by several different
mainstream sources, such as the US Surgeon General and the
Chief of the medical services of the US Army.
"AIDS does not merely bring certain dangers with it; it is
clearly a programmed catastrophe for the human race, whose
magnitude is comparable only with that of a nuclear war", say the
Segals.
" They later explain what they mean by "programmed," showing that
the virus was produced by humans, namely Dr. Robert Gallo of the
Bethesda Cancer Research Center in Maryland. When proceeding to
prove their claims, the Segals are careful to note that:
"We have given preference to the investigative results of highly
renowned laboratories, whose objective contents cannot be
doubted. We must emphasize, in this connection, that we do not
know
