CDC: Swine flu broke out in California
CDC Novel H1N1 Flu | 2009 H1N1 Pandemic: Summary Narrative
H1N1... the new influenza virus (then called ‘swine flu') first detected in a 10-year-old California patient being tested for influenza in a clinical study...is a unique combination of influenza virus genes never previously identified in animals or people... a combination of genes most closely related to North American swine-lineage H1N1 and Eurasian lineage swine-origin H1N1 influenza viruses. Because of this, initial reports referred to the virus as a swine influenza virus. However, investigations of initial human cases did not identify exposures to pigs and it quickly became apparent this new virus was circulating among humans, not among U.S. pig herds....

Biotechnology Co. Replikins Ltd. Advanced Warning of Mexican H1N1 'Swine Flu' Virus Outbreak
Warnings Follow Rise in Replikins Count for Both H5N1 and Swine Flu (H1N1); Replikins Synthetic TransFlu™ Vaccine Tested
FierceBiotech is the drug development industry's news monitor, covering biopharma deals, clinical trials, FDA decisions, and more.
From 2003, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has formally reviewed Replikins' technology and influenza hemagglutinin Replikin epitopes in preparation to meet the threatened combination of H1N1 and H5N1, and previously unpredictable single strain outbreaks....[Prediction of specific virus outbreaks made from the increased concentration of a new class of virus genomic peptides, Replikins. http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/npre.2011.6279.1 (2011)."]
In 2000, Replikins Ltd. scientists identified genomic sequences (Replikins). The protein translations of these sequences can be counted in the virus genome, per 100 amino acids (Replikin Count), by Replikins Bioradar™ software. Replikin Count was found to relate quantitatively to rapid replication of the virus, and to virus outbreaks.
This technology was found to predict virus outbreaks, not possible in the past. Initial "scout virus" outbreaks provide early warning which give time to plan public health measures, to manufacture and test more accurate vaccines for the coming outbreaks. For example, increases in H1N1 Replikin Counts in 2008 (5) predicted one year in advance the outbreak of the global 2009 H1N1 pandemic. In 2008 Replikins Ltd. manufactured the first completely synthetic TransFlu™ Replikins Vaccine against the common influenza strains. In 2009, TransFlu™ was successful blocking H5N1 in the first of its continuing trials in the U.S. and elsewhere. In 2009, NIH data confirmed the conserved and strain-sharing central role of Replikins by antibody validation, e.g. inhibitory antibodies landed on and bound to Replikins epitopes. Now in 2011, NIH Director announced NIH hopes to have a pan-influenza vaccine in 5 years.

"Technically plausible but not likely,"
Lancet Infectious Diseases Study supports advisory against Tamiflu
"Children under the age of 12 should not be given Tamiflu or Relenza, the two antiviral drugs that form the cornerstone of the government's fight against swine flu, because their side-effects outweigh any benefits, Oxford University researchers said. The research, to be published in the British Medical Journal, said Tamiflu also caused vomiting in 5% of children, which could lead to
dehydration and complications."
A-H1N1 Swine Flu Likely Originated in US Lab
By William Sutherland www.resources-teachers.com/education/science/a-h1n1-swine-flu-likely-ori...
When the first reported cases of A/H1N1 swine flu emerged in April 2009, it was widely believed the novel influenza strain originated in Mexico. By late June, when evidence
failed to materialize confirming a Mexican origin, a new theory hypothesized that A/H1N1 originated in Asia and was transported unintentionally via an unsuspecting human carrier to
North America. This though, probably is not the case. Instead it is likely, though not confirmed, that A/H1N1, is a genetically engineered creation that originated in the United States, specifically in a lab in Madison, Wisconsin...The evidence for this scenario is compelling: ...* Samples of the new A/H1N1 virus were already present at the CDC prior to receipt of Mexican specimens. Per CDC virologist Ruben Donis in an interview conducted by Science Direct (published April 29, 2009) - the CDC had completed sequencing of the novel A/H1N1 strain two weeks earlier or by April 15, 2009 - three days before Mexican officials shipped swab samples to its Atlanta headquarters for testing. Based on the facts above, compelling evidence exists that the outbreak of A/H1N1 swine flu that led to the WHO's first pandemic declaration in 41 years, was created synthetically and likely can be traced back to IMV's lab in Madison, WI....
specifically in a lab in Madison, Wisconsin that accidentally escaped through some kind of contamination. The evidence for this scenario is compelling:[...]

CBS News Exclusive: Study Of State Results Finds H1N1 Not As Prevalent As Feared. Testing Abruptly Stopped
10/21/09 By Sharyl Attkisson http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/10/21/cbsnews_investigates/main54048...
(CBS) If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation... In late July, the CDC abruptly instructed states to stop testing for H1N1 and stop counting individual cases. The rationale given for the CDC guidance to stop testing and tracking was: why waste resources when the government already confirmed an epidemic? ... July 24, the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists, CSTE, issued this notice to state public health officials on behalf of the CDC: "Attached are Q&As that will be posted on the CDC website tomorrow explaining why CDC is no longer reporting case counts for novel H1N1. CDC would have liked to have run these by you for input but unfortunately there was not enough time before these needed to be posted." ...CBS asked all 50 states for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 prior to the halt of testing and counting in July.The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact many states specifically tested people deemed most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico. It’s unknown what patients who tested negative for flu were actually afflicted with...Health experts say it’s assumed patients had some sort of cold or upper respiratory infection not influenza.

Biological Warfare: Genetically-Engineered Weapons Cannot Be Excluded
By K.P. Kavanaugh, http://www.fas.org/faspir/v52n2.htm#weapons
Early in the development of the US offensive biological weapons program Colonel Creasey, Chief of Research and Engineering of the US Chemical Corps, suggested agents may be selected because of known susceptibility of the target population...showing the susceptibility of different populations to various diseases had been considered then and, according to scientists at DARPA (Defense Advance Research Projects Agency) continues today.... Nor is it essential to focus on the genetic constitution of a particular group to attack it in an ethnic specific way. Vaccination of the attacker against the intended biological agent would give specificity if the target population was not vaccinated. Attacking a particular population with lethal toxins could achieve the same effect. Cearly, attacking a principal food source of one side which the other side did not consume (as an example, swine induced diseases are being studied by the US Department of Defense in this area) could produce a specific attack on a designated population....
1992 the journal Defense News carried a report arguing genetic engineering may enable us to:
...recognize DNA from different people and attach different things that will kill only that group of people...You will be able to determine the difference between blacks and whites and Asians and Jews and Swedes and Finns and develop an agent that will kill only a particular group.
..Such arguments are set out at length in a 1993 Stockholm Peace Research Institute's Yearbook appendix... "Benefits and threats of developments in biotechnology and genetic engineering,.. Human Genome Project and genetic diversity knowledge... information from such genetic research for the design of weapons targeted against specific ethnic or racial groups...may be possible to use such data to target micro-organisms to attack known receptor sites for which differences exist at a cell membrane level or target DNA sequences inside cells by viral vectors...
The Genetically Modified "Ethno" Bomb
9/10/03 by Thom Hartmann, http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0910-15.htm
When creating a genetic bomb to target specific groups, such genetic profiles are actually far subtler and more accurate than the coarse pseudo-category we call race. Among men named Cohen all over the world, for example, researchers have found a specific genetic profile tying them all back to a common ancestor. Another group with a common genetic profile are people with ADHD ("The Edison Gene"), who uniquely share common inherited variations in their dopamine-regulating genes, regardless of their ostensible race, geography, or ethnicity. Thus, anybody who's part of a group with a shared genetic profile may be at risk in the future, suggest the authors of The Project for a New American Century's (PNAC) report titled "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century."The report notes "Much has been written about the need to transform the conventional armed forces of the United States to take advantage of the 'revolution in military affairs....'"... lest we lose our ability to fight unconventional wars...in cyberspace... underwater... outer space...within our bodies... if a virus or bacteria could infected a particular type of person, killing, disabling, or sterilizing those with particular genetic profiles that tracks back to a common ancestor or region.
Three years ago, Wolfowitz, Kristol and colleagues suggested the Pentagon should be thinking about... Not just germ warfare, but gene warfare... "advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool." ...
Genetic weapons to provide force for high-tech ethnic war
...The Human Genome Project, mapping the entire human genetic code, might produce enough information to allow specific genetic types to be identified. "We know the genes for hair colour, eye colour and height. If 90 per cent of the [enemy] have blue eyes, blond hair and are over six feet tall, that could be the cluster you are looking for." Certain blood types were commoner in different ethnic groups and could also be targeted, Dr. Nathanson said.
GENETIC WARFARE NEARING REALITY
This article first appeared in the London Times (November 1998) http://www.peace.ca/geneticwarfare.htm
Human Genome Project related research into "ethnic bombs"
ISRAEL is working on a biological weapon to harm Arabs but not Jews, according to Israeli military and western intelligence sources....In developing the "ethno-bomb", Israeli scientists are trying to...identify distinctive genes carried by some Arabs, then create a genetically modified bacterium or virus to alter the DNA inside the host's living cells...engineer deadly micro-organisms that attack only those bearing the distinctive genes. The programme is based at the biological institute in Nes Tziyona, the main research facility for Israel's clandestine arsenal of chemical and biological weapons. A scientist there said the task was hugely complicated because both Arabs and Jews are of semitic origin. But he added: "They have, however, succeeded in pinpointing a particular characteristic in the genetic profile of certain Arab groups, particularly Iraqi people."
Dr Daan Goosen, head of a South African chemical and biological warfare plant, said his team was ordered in the 1980s to develop a "pigmentation weapon" to target black people... the team discussed spreading it in beer, maize or vaccinations, but never managed to develop one. But a confidential Pentagon report last year said biological agents could be genetically engineered to produce new lethal weapons. William Cohen, U.S. defence secretary, revealed he had received reports of countries working to create "certain types of ethnic-specific" pathogens. A senior western intelligence source confirmed last week that Israel was one of the countries Cohen had in mind."Ethno-bomb" claims have been given further credence in Foreign Report, a Jane's publication that closely monitors security and defence matters, reports unnamed South African sources saying Israeli scientists used some South African research to develop an "ethnic bullet" against Arabs...also that Israelis discovered aspects of Arab genetic make-up by researching on "Jews of Arab origin, especially Iraqis".
