Chapter 28: Rockefellers AIDS Part 3 Merck

"Any method which appears to offer advantages to a nation at war will be vigorously employed by that nation. There is but one logical course to pursue, namely, to study the possibilities of such warfare from every angle ... "
-George W. Merck, Merck Pharmaceutical Company President, report on biological warfare to U.S. Secretary of War, 1942 (161)
Merck's ties to Rockefeller are numerous, involving money from the Rockefeller (162) and Sloan foundations (163) - not to mention officials from I.G. Farben. Henry Kissinger - long-time member of Rockefeller's Council on Foreign Relations - remains on Merck's board of advisors. (164)

Henry Kissinger, a professor of international relations at Harvard University and a political ally of Nelson Rockefeller, was named the National Security Advisor

Merck's ties to American biological warfare research goes back to its very beginnings. In 1941, Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson - a member of Rockefeller's Council on Foreign Relations - requested the Rockefeller-controlled (165) National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to appoint a committee to survey the feasibility of biological war weapons.

The 1942 NAS committee concluded that biological war might be feasible and recommended that steps be taken to reduce U.S. vulnerability to a bio-weapon attack. A civilian agency, the War Reserve Service was formed under the direction of George W. Merck, of the Merck Company. (166)

George Merck made it clear that "All possible living agents, or their toxic products, which were pathological for man, animal and plants were considered." (167) Merck mentions significant advances in "human immunity" biological warfare weapons as early as 1946. (168)

Weapons production at Fort Detrick, Maryland, the U.S. Army's base for biowarfare research.

Records show the Merck pharmaceutical company received a major share of the Nazi "flight capital" - the working capital of the IG Farben Rockefeller chemical cartel - at the close of World War II. These facts were revealed by Norman Covert, Army public relations director at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD (169) - the same "Camp Detrick" given to George Merck to use for his wartime research. Camp Detrick Army Chemical Corps worked with Germany's bio-warfare specialist Major General Kurt Blome - just two months after he was acquitted at Nuremberg. (170)

KURT BLOME - Deputy [of the] Reich Health Leader (Reichsgesundheitsfuehrer); and Plenipotentiary for Cancer Research in the Reich Research Council.

Bayer worked at Ft. Detrick after WW2, developing "new weapons." (171)

No doubt Merck put all that Nazi know-how to work making war viruses. A "Special Virus Cancer Program" contract from 1971 revealed Merck developed "methods of propagation, purification, concentration, and specific quantitation of candidate viruses suspected or shown to cause cancer in man."

One of the viruses mentioned in the contract was called the "KT strain of feline leukemia" - what leading experts have identified as a man-made virus, possibly a "cat/human mutant." At the onset of the AIDS epidemic, the Center for Disease Control hepatitis B Chief Dr. Don Francis said; Combine these two diseases - feline leukemia and hepatitis - and you have the immune deficiency. (172)

Dr. Don Francis says he would be pleased with an AIDS vaccine that is 30 percent effective.

Merck also created a Hepatitis B vaccine that they tested on New York homosexuals - their "Phase I and II studies" occurring between 1976 and 1977 (173) - which could account for the first recorded New York AIDS cases in Manhattan in 1978. (174)

Thabo Mbeki with Merck & Co. Chairman Raymond Gilmartin

MBEKI VISITS MERCK USA HQ - WEST POINT, Pa. (AP) - South Africa President Thabo Mbeki, who has been criticized for not taking a stronger stand on AIDS, followed up a meeting with President Bush with a visit Wednesday to a lab working on an AIDS vaccine. Mbeki said Merck & Co., one of the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers, has expressed interest in working with the South African government to examine "these broader questions".

One last interesting connection. George Merck lived on Jupiter Island, Florida - home to Paul Mellon (Andrew's son) and Prescott Bush. (175)
