World Health Organization’s Ebola vaccine trial in Guinea- Fact or fiction?
The World Health Organization (WHO) is set to launch an Ebola vaccine trial in Guinea in what it claims is an effort to determine the experimental drug’s effectiveness in the fight against future outbreaks of the life threatening hemorrhagic virus that, according to the WHO, has a 25-90% fatality rate with 50% being the average.
The WHO says there are no licensed Ebola vaccines at this time; this despite the fact that the U.S. government has somehow managed to obtain a patent for the virus long before the most recent outbreak. The patent filing occurred on October 26th, 2009 and was published on April 29th, 2010. Details of the U.S. government’s patent on the Ebola virus are shown below:

The “official” story that the World Health Organization, along with the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other agencies, have disseminated for public consumption suggests that the virus is just another wild microorganism that humans contract from the local wildlife, though the virus only appeared as recently as 1976, unlike other wild zoonotic contagions such as rabies and bubonic plague, both of which have been documented for centuries.
While the sudden appearance and sporadic outbreaks may seem mysterious to a casual observer, three reputable and highly educated dissenting voices say there’s much more to Ebola than what the public has been told by the American press. This should come as no surprise, as the American mainstream media has been little more than a propaganda machine since it was hijacked in the early 1950s by Frank Wisner via the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird.
One of these courageous voices, Professor Francis A. Boyle, who teaches International Law at the University of Illinois and was responsible for drafting the U.S. Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, discussed the Ebola situation during an interview with Greek news outlet, tvxs.gr, in October 2014. When asked if the Ebola outbreak in Africa is merely the result of a healthcare crisis, Professor Boyle replied,
“That isn’t true at all. This is just propaganda being put out by everyone. It seems to me, that what we are dealing with here is a biological warfare work that was conducted at the bio-warfare laboratories set up by the USA on the west coast of Africa…”
When asked about the U.S. government’s supposedly “defensive” bio-warfare research, Professor Boyle elaborated,
“…If you study what the CDC and the Pentagon do… They say it is defensive, but this is just for public relation purposes than anything. It’s a trick. What it means is what they decide at these bio-warfare labs. They say, “well we have to develop a vaccine”, so that’s their defensive argument. Then what they do is to develop the bio-warfare agent itself. Usually by means of DNA genetic engineering. And then they say, “well to get the vaccine we have to develop the bio-warfare agent” – usually by DNA genetic engineering – and then they try to work on the vaccine. So it’s two uses type of work. I haven’t read all these bio-warfare contracts but that’s typical of the way the Pentagon CDC has been doing this since at least the 1980’s. I have absolute proof from a Pentagon document that the Center of Disease Control was doing bio-warfare work for the Pentagon in Sierra Leone, the heart of the outbreak, as early as 1988. And indeed it was probably before then because they would have had to construct the lab and that would have taken some time. So we know that Fort Detrick and the Center for Disease Control are over there, Tulane University, which is a well-known bio-warfare center here in USA – I would say notorious for it – is there. They all have been over there.
In addition, USA government made sure that Liberia, a former colony of the USA, never became a party to the Biological Weapons Convention, so they were able to do bio – warfare work over there – going back to 1980’s – the USA government, in order to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention. Likewise, Guinea the third state affected here – and there is an increase now – didn’t even sign the Biological Weapons Convention. So, it seems to me, that the different agencies of the US government have been always there try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention and engage bio-warfare work. Indeed, we had one of these two lab bio-warriors admit in the NY Times that they were not over there for the purpose of either screening or treating people. That’s not what these labs are about. These labs are there in my opinion to do bio-warfare work for different agencies of the US government. Indeed, many of them were set up by USAID. And everyone knows that USAID is penetrated all up and down by the CIA and CIA has been involved in bio-warfare work as well.”
When asked about the Western military presence in Liberia, Professor Boyle said,
“The US military just invaded Liberia. They send in the 101st Airborne Division to Liberia. That’s an elite division of combat and they have no training to provide medical treatment to anyone. They are there to establish a military base in Liberia. And the British are doing the same in Sierra Leone. The French are already in Mali and Senegal. So, they’re not sending military people there to treat these people. No, I’m sorry.”
Professor Boyle is not some tin foil conspiracy theorist. The man holds a Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both from Harvard University, and served on the Board of Directors for Amnesty International from 1988-1992.
It’s a fact that the West African countries that Professor Boyle named- Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone- have indeed been hit the hardest by this most recent Ebola outbreak, which has claimed an estimated 9,800 human lives. The WHO recently stated that its “vaccine study” will be focused on Basse Guinee, a region that is home to most of Guinea’s Ebola victims.
The WHO says its vaccination plans for Guinea entail the creation of a buffer zone around an Ebola case to prevent it from spreading, which was a method used in the 1970s to eradicate smallpox. The agency says officials will vaccinate people who have been exposed to Ebola patients, and are at risk of infection.
In October 2014, Dr. Cyril Broderick, scientist and former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry, who also taught for many years at Delaware University’s Agricultural College, spoke out publicly against the WHO’s official Ebola story by way of an open letter to the global public. In his letter, addressed to “World Citizens,” Dr. Broderick also says Ebola is a genetically modified organism and cites the book, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola- Nature, Accident or Intentional?, authored by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz. Dr. Broderick also stated in his letter,
“The World Health Organization (WHO) and several other UN Agencies have been implicated in selecting and enticing African countries to participate in the testing events, promoting vaccinations, but pursuing various testing regiments. The August 2, 2014 article, West Africa: What are US Biological Warfare Researchers Doing in the Ebola Zone? by Jon Rappoport of Global Research pinpoints the problem that is facing African governments.
Obvious in this and other reports are, among others:
(a) The US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), a well-known centre for bio-war research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland;
(b) Tulane University, in New Orleans, USA, winner of research grants, including a grant of more than $7 million the National Institute of Health (NIH) to fund research with the Lassa viral hemorrhagic fever;
(c) the US Center for Disease Control (CDC);
(d) Doctors Without Borders (also known by its French name, Medicins Sans Frontiers);
(e) Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company;
(f) The UK’s GlaxoSmithKline; and
(g) the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone.
Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The only relevant positive and ethical olive-branch seen in all of my reading is that Theguardian.com reported, “The US government funding of Ebola trials on healthy humans comes amid warnings by top scientists in Harvard and Yale that such virus experiments risk triggering a worldwide pandemic.” That threat still persists.”
Regarding the human rights aspect of the Ebola scene, Dr. Broderick further states,
“The U. S., Canada, France, and the U. K. are all implicated in the detestable and devilish deeds that these Ebola tests are. There is the need to pursue criminal and civil redress for damages, and African countries and people should secure legal representation to seek damages from these countries, some corporations, and the United Nations. Evidence seems abundant against Tulane University, and suits should start there. Yoichi Shimatsu’s article, The Ebola Breakout Coincided with UN Vaccine Campaigns, as published on August 18, 2014, in the Liberty Beacon.”
Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, whose book Dr. Broderick cited, is an award winning author, film-maker, activist and intelligence industry analyst. Dr. Horowitz holds a doctorate from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated with honors, before being awarded a research fellowship in behavioral science at the University of Rochester. He earned his Masters in Public Health at Harvard University, and earned a Master of Arts degree in health education and counseling psychology from Beacon College before joining the research faculty at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. He has published 17 books and dozens of peer reviewed scientific articles.
Dr. Horowitz has been a vocal critic of the Rockefeller-financed World Health Organization, which is itself a branch of the United Nations that was established for the purpose of advancing and legitimizing the Western pharmacuetical industry. Dr. Horowitz and his colleagues established the non-profit Healthy World Organization (HWO) in their fight against the shamelessly illegal “Codex Alimentarius,” which violates both the Sherman Anti-Trust Act in addition to human rights, namely the right to make informed and healthy food choices. Codex Alimentarius is a concerted attack on the natural/alternative healing industry and is intended to stop people from accessing safe and effective natural treatments and cures such as medicinal herbs and health supplements, in addition to prohibiting access to safe, nutritious and sustainably farmed food. The WHO, along with the CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and their regulatory agents give full support to Codex Alimentarius.
The experimental vaccine which the WHO plans to unleash in Guinea, VSV-EBOV, was developed at the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory, has never been tested on humans, and is now licensed to Merck. A second vaccine, developed by the U.S. National Institute of Health in collusion with GlaxoSmithKline, is expected to be tested in a separate study as supplies become available. The vaccine experiment in Guinea is being conducted in conjunction with other agencies including Doctors Without Borders, Epicentre, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the Guinean government.
WHO chief, Margaret Chan, said, “If a vaccine is found effective, it will be the first preventive tool against Ebola in history.”
Medical Director of Doctors Without Borders, Bertrand Draguez, condoned the trial, saying, “For more than a year, we have been racing around the clock to stop the epidemic from spreading further.” While Doctors Without Borders claims to operate in a “neutral, impartial and ethical” manner, it’s worth noting that the organization receives massive corporate funding from Wall Street. Among it’s various corporate donors are Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Microsoft, Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, Carnegie Corporation, Bloomberg and Google.
Liberian authorities recently discharged the country’s last Ebola patient, and the country must be free of Ebola cases for 42 days in order to be declared “Ebola-free” by the World Health Organization.
Last week, the WHO reported 132 new Ebola cases, an increase from the 99 cases reported the previous week, and further stated the virus is “widespread” in Sierra Leone and that the country’s infection rate, along with that of Guinea, have increased.
According to the WHO, half of Guinea’s newly infected patients are connected to known cases, which suggests that health officials don’t know where the disease is spreading in the other half of cases. The WHO also says that traditional burials are still carried out in both Sierra Leone and Guinea, increasing risk of transmission, and further claims that its workers get attacked by locals who don’t trust the organization.
Additionally, the WHO claims that the rate of Ebola deaths occurring outside hospitals is high in these countries because the locals “don’t understand, accept or act upon” the need for early quarantine and treatment.
