AIDS "Dissident" Travels to Kenya on "Forgiveness Mission"
Says Vaccines Helped Trigger Pandemic

Sandpoint, ID From the Office of the President of Kenya, one of the highest ranking military officials has arranged a series of lectures by a leading HIV/AIDS "dissident" scientist who is expected to present compelling new evidence that the pandemic was initiated by early hepatitis B (HB) vaccine trials conducted on gay men in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa during the early to mid 1970s. According to mission organizers, the documented studies, and their alarming implications, demand scientific and political reconciliation conducted in a climate of "forgiveness" in order to turn the tide on a raging pandemic currently striking as many as sixty percent of the people in many areas of Kenya.


 Based on an independent three year study into the origin of HIV that explains the chimpanzee connection to human AIDS, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, a Harvard graduate and internationally recognized authority in public health, determined that risky pilot HB vaccine trials were initiated by the New York University Medical Center and continued by the Merck pharmaceutical company until 1975. Collaborating with Merck, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)‹the government's top AIDS science agency, produced four lots of HB vaccine consisting of 200,000 human doses. The four lots, believed to be contaminated with HIV gene sequences, were prepared by passing live HB viruses, grown in contaminated African chimpanzees, to polio vaccine recipients previously exposed to monkey cancer viruses suspected of playing a role in initiating AIDS. The final preparations were injected into gay men in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa by 1975. A detailed report on Dr. Horowitz's thesis is in press in the esteemed scientific journal of Medical Hypothesis due out in early 2001. According to several investigators, this may best explain how and why there was a sudden simultaneous outbreak of at least four major HIV strains, on two far removed continents, in two demographically distinct populations, in the late 1970s, corresponding to the only complete virus discoveries.


 These disclosures come at a time of heightened concern regarding the risks posed by HIV/AIDS to U.S. national security and international finance. On April 29, 2000, the CIA issued a report declaring that global HIV/AIDS was a U.S. "national security threat," prompting President Clinton to place all of AIDS science, and the agencies conducting it, under CIA oversight. Immediate calls for the arrest of HIV/AIDS "dissident scientists" were made by officials representing consensus interests. Dr. Mark Wainberg, for instance, affiliated with McGill University in Montreal, and the president of the International AIDS Society, called for the immediate incarceration of "scientific dissidents" who proposed alternative explanations of AIDS, its origin, and treatment.   These actions closely followed the highly publicized decision of South African President Thabo Mbeki to include the testimonies of "dissident" scientists in a review of HIV/AIDS.  Synchronously, President Clinton approved the National Intelligence Council's (NIC) CIA-sponsored formal declaration of AIDS as a "national security threat."


 The "forgiveness mission" organized by Chaplain, Ministry of Defense, Major Caleb Gwambo, with support from the President, His Excellency Daniel T. Arap Moi, follows dramatic declines in life expectancy in Central and South Africa, and calls for "global disease control" initiatives. Given the possibility that HIV/AIDS was vaccine induced, with the Merck pharmaceutical company linked to both the suspected vaccines and the CIA's top secret biological weapons program, MK:NAOMI, during that period, the spectre of global genocide is raised. Thus, mission leaders believe that a climate of reconciliation and "forgiveness" best suits all humane interests.


 The "Forgiveness Mission" was conceived following a review of "thirty-two copies" of Dr. Horowitz's national best-seller, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola‹Nature, Accident or Intentional?, (Tetrahedron Publishing Group, 1998; 1-888-508-4787), by Kenyan leaders. Initially, Major Gwambo called to thank Dr. Horowitz for his work‹among the highest rated books on Amazon.com.  "From the bottom of our hearts," Major Gwambo said, "the President and the people of Kenya wish to thank you. . . . You will never know in your lifetime, only in the hereafter, how many hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives you have personally saved by your efforts." He referred to the cessation of a World Health Organization (WHO) experimental vaccine program, halted by President Arap Moi, and Research Minister, the Honorable Andrew Kiptoon, as a result of reading the incriminating documents reprinted in Dr. Horowitz's text. Later, the military official invited Dr. Horowitz to tour Kenya.


 No stranger to controversy, or U.S. public health officials, Dr. Horowitz has been a regular critic of health scientists biased by economics and pharmaceutical interests. His work has gained increasing respect from members of the medical and scientific communities. When previous CDC director, and current Surgeon General of the United States, David Satcher, first learned about Dr. Horowitz's work, he invited the author/investigator to meet in Atlanta to "discuss issues of mutual interest." Later, he withdrew the invitation citing a "lack of credible, evidence-based information." In response, Dr. Horowitz reported to thousands of internet-workers, and the press, that Dr. Satcher's comments were false and misleading. "If the CDC truly demanded rigorous scientific proof to support its public health policies," Dr. Horowitz said, then the CDC would also be calling for a moratorium on trusted vaccinations "which, to date, lack definitive scientific analyses showing positive risk/benefit ratios." Dr. Horowitz also questioned how much scientific evidence the CDC and FDA officials demanded when their "mutual consent was given to blood and pharmaceutical interests to sustain the use of HIV contaminated clotting factor VIII and blood supplies to the public between 1983 and 1986," despite the fact that these officials predicted thousands would die as a result.
 Regarding Dr. Horowitz's  HB vaccine/HIV/AIDS thesis, in 1984, when scientists first questioned the possible HB vaccine link to the AIDS epidemic, CDC and Merck pharmaceutical officials omitted investigating homosexuals in New York City‹the men known to be the primary and earliest test subjects for the suspected vaccine. Instead, they focused only on Denver and San Francisco populations that had not been immunized using the earliest, most implicated, vaccine lots. "No wonder your Œexpert' CDC authors remained ŒAnonymous' on this Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report," Dr. Horowitz chided Dr. Satcher. "I too would feel ashamed to affix my name to such bogus Œscience.'"


 "It's essential that we understand the cause of AIDS and its prevention," President Clinton told Ugandan leaders on August 26, 2000. To this Dr. Horowitz responded, "Considering the likelihood that HIV/AIDS is vaccine induced, without considering this possible cause, our prevention efforts will remain shortsighted and consistently ineffective unless, that is, your desire is global depopulation."


 "We are asking for prayers to heal our nation and its people," Major Gwambo requested, "along with understanding the whole truth, including the spiritual lessons, in HIV/AIDS. . . . We are greatly looking forward to Dr. Horowitz's safe arrival, and we request prayers for this as well."


 Dr. Horowitz's  Kenyan mission, planned for October 23-30, will be followed by a similar tour of South Africa. Information requests or financial contributions should be sent to Dr. Horowitz's non-profit publishing company at Post Office Box 2033, Sandpoint, ID 83864; 1-888-508-4787.
