I figured out a long time ago why sci.med.aids will not publish
an obviously legitimate viewpoint. It systematically censors every
single article that dares suggest that any aspect of the
AIDS epidemic and its origins might be suspicious or worthy
of investigation, in any way. It matters not all if the article is
factual, well-documented and presented in dignified manner.
It is rank and outrageous censorship by arrogant, game-playing
moderators who abuse their powers, to permit only their own
politically-correct, bland, reassuring views.
A United States Congressman made a call for the origins
of AIDS to be investigated. By doing so, he forced the
United State General Accounting Office to make a
response. He made that call, just this year. It is not "old news".
It has not been widely publicized You cannot pretend that it is
something that is not of relevance or interest to people with AIDS,
regardless of their viewpoints.
Freedom of expression is under attack on the supposedly "free"
internet. The contemptible behavior of the sci.med.aids moderators
is only one method and one example of that attack. When the full
dimensions of the scandal become apparent, it is my sincere hope
that these individuals will someday find themselves as tarnished,
widely spotlighted, and as unpopular as pedophile priests.
GAO DENIES AIDS BIOWAR ORIGIN
Below is a copy of a letter sent recently from the U.S. General
Accounting Office, to a U.S. Congressman, denying that the
AIDS Virus was originally created or manipulated as part of the
massive "Special Virus Cancer Program" in the 1970s, and
introduced into the U.S. gay population.
U.S. Representative Traficant of Ohio had joined in a call for
the investigation of the question. Traficant has been a controversial
figure in the Congress, and a target of accusations of ethical
However, as it has often been the case concerning the gay-rights
movement, or in the case of former President Clinton,
accusations can sometimes be selectively brought forward, in
atmosphere of more general corruption, for the sake of
It is possible for a cause to be perfectly legitimate, even if the
advocates for the cause may be less than perfect. It is a positive
development that any United States Congressman has managed
at least to raise the question in a public forum.
The question of whether HIV was in any way modified genetically,
or was merely discovered, is not so important as the question of
whether it had been intentionally introduced to gay men through
contaminated vaccines, administered in an unprecedented,
government-sponsored program, immediately before the first
visible outbreak of the epidemic in the United States.
There is compelling evidence to suggest that this was in fact
The current concerns regarding biological terrorism should make us
reconsider the lingering questions, concerning whether the AIDS epidemic
is really a natural phenomenon, or was an earlier example of covert
assault, rooted in the same type of madness and human cruelty that
now confront us.

scientific assessments of the origins of the AIDS virus (HIV-1) and any
evidence regarding the origins of the AIDS virus at SVCP, and (3) the
