The pattern became obvious with Don Wiley.
On November 15th, 2001 Harvard Professor Don Wiley left a gathering of friends
and colleagues some time after 10:30 PM. The next morning, Memphis police found
his rental car stopped on a bridge, with a full tank of gas and keys still in
the ignition. There was no financial or family trouble. Indeed Wiley was supposed
to meet his family at the Memphis airport to continue on to an Icelandic vacation.
Neither was there any history of depression or mental illness.
In the report printed in the New York Times on November 27th, the FBI's Memphis
office distanced itself from the case saying that the available facts did not
add up to a suspicion of foul play. I guess at the FBI it's a perfectly everyday
occurrence for a Harvard Professor to stop his rental car on a bridge in the
middle of the night before he is supposed to leave for Iceland and just walk
away into the Tennessee dark.
The NYT report of November 27th also downplayed Professor Wiley's expertise
in virology, quoting Gregory Verdine, a professor of chemical biology at Harvard,
said, "If bioterrorists were to abduct Don Wiley, they'd be very disappointed,"
because his research was in studying the component parts of viruses, and "that
doesn't really help you make a more dangerous version of the virus."
But this statement is not consistent with the facts of Professor Wiley's full
range of knowledge. Wiley has, in conjunction with another Harvard Professor,
Dr. Jack Strominger, won several academic prizes for their work in immunology,
including a Lasker prize. Don Wiley is a Harvard professor, but he is also a
researcher at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the National Institute
of Health. The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is located in Chevy Chase, Maryland,
and performs biological research, sometimes jointly funded by the Department
of Defense and the NIH. Don Wiley's peers at Harvard include professors such
as John Collier performing research on Anthrax.
So, contrary to the dismissive tone of the New York Times report, Professor
Wiley would be of great value to anyone developing biological weapons. This
makes the FBI's obvious disinterest in the case highly questionable, indeed
reminiscent of the FBI's obvious disinterest in the numerous witnesses in Oklahoma
City who had seen Tim McVeigh in the company of additional perpetrators not
to mention the witnesses who had seen additional
Especially in light of the events of 9/11, the vanishing of a scientist with
Professor Wiley's expertise in virology and immunology should have been expected
to be an issue of critical national importance, yet the official tone of the
government was that this is nothing to worry about. Move along citizen, nothing
In the context of the Anthrax letters being sent through the mail, any disappearance
of any microbiologist under questionable circumstances should have set off alarm
bells across the nation. but it didn't. Professor Wiley was assumed to have
committed suicide, end of story.
colleagues expressed doubts about the official "suicide" explanation
for his disappearance.
Then, more biologists started to die under suspicious circumstances.
The Very Mysterious Deaths
of Five Microbiologists.
The body count of infections disease experts continued to climb. Connections
to weapons research began to surface.
As many as 14 world-class
microbiologists died between 9/11/1 and 3/2/2, and on 6/24/2 yet another microbiologist
was added to the list.
Still the US Government acted as if nothing was amiss, as silent on the question
of dead microbiologists as they are on the question of the Israeli
spies and their connection to 9-11.
In fact, the official silence on the question of how so many top experts in
infectious diseases could die in such a short time span is deafening.
Now, statistically, it's possible, even likely, that one or two of these microbiologists
legitimately were killed in random accidents. But for so many to die in such
a short while exceeds all reasonable bounds of statistics. Prudence would demand
an investigation, not the "ho hum" attitude of the government which
even today continues to issue dire warnings to the general population of how
much we are all in danger from "bioterrorism".
So, let's take a moment and step away from the perpetual fear-mongering of
the media (and Rumsfeld) as they assure us another attack IS coming (with a
certainty which suggests inside information on the subject) and assume for a
moment that some party has indeed decided to "liquidate" weapons research
infectious disease experts.
There is really only one reason to kill off a bunch of scientists. To keep
them from doing something they are able to do.
What were these scientists able to do? Maybe blow the whistle if an artificially
created disease was about to be used
in a manner those who created it did not approve of.
Regardless of the exact reason, there does seem to be a clear pattern of targeted
microbiologists, and paired with it, an obvious government disinterest in the
I leave it to you to figure out why.
November 6, 2001: Jeffrey Paris Wall's body was found sprawled next to a three-story
parking structure near his office. Mr. Wall, 41, had studied at the University
of California, Los Angeles. He was a biomedical expert who held a medical degree,
and he also specialized in patent and intellectual property. It had been alleged
that Jeffrey Wall had a connection to Biofem.
November 16, 2001: Dr. Don Wiley, 57, disappears during a business trip to
Memphis, Tennessee. He had just bought tickets to take his son to Graceland
the following day. Police found his rental car on a bridge outside Memphis.
His body was later found in the Mississippi River. Wiley was one of the world's
leading researchers of deadly viruses, including HIV and the Ebola virus. He
was an expert on the immune system's response to viral attacks.
November 21, 2001: World-class microbiologist and high-profile Russian defector
Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, 64, dies of a stroke. Pasechnik, who defected to Britain
in 1989, succeeded in producing an aerosolized plague microbe that could survive
outside the laboratory. He was connected to Britain's spy agency and recently
had started his own company. "In the last few weeks of his life he had
put his research on anthrax at the disposal of the [British] Government, in
the light of the threat from bioterrorism.
November 24, 2001: Three more dead microbiologists: A Swissair flight from
Berlin to Zurich crashes during its landing approach; 22 are killed and nine
survive. Among those killed are Dr. Yaakov Matzner, 54, dean of the Hebrew University
school of medicine; Amiramp Eldor, 59, head of the haematology department at
Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv and a world-recognized expert in blood clotting;
and Avishai Berkman, 50, director of the Tel Aviv public health department and
December 10, 2001: Dead microbiologist: "Dr. Robert Schwartz, 57, was
stabbed and slashed with what police believe was a sword in his farmhouse in
Leesberg, Va. His daughter, who identifies herself as a pagan high priestess,
and three of her fellow pagans have been charged." [Globe and Mail, 5/4/02]
All were part of what they called a coven, and interested in magic, fantasy
and self-mutilation. The police have no motive as to why they would have wanted
to kill Schwartz, who was a single parent and said to be very close to his children.
Schwartz worked at Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology on DNA sequencing
and pathogenic microorganisms.
December 14, 2001: Dead microbiologist: Nguyen Van Set, 44, dies in an airlock
filled with nitrogen in his lab in Geelong, Australia. The lab had just been
written up in the journal Nature for its work in genetic manipulation and DNA
sequencing. Scientists there had created a virulent form of mousepox. "They
realized that if similar genetic manipulation was carried out on smallpox, an
unstoppable killer could be unleashed,"

February 28, 2002: Two dead microbiologists in San Francisco: While taking
delivery of a pizza, Tanya Holzmayer, 46, is shot and killed by a colleague,
Guyang Huang, 38, who then apparently shot himself. Holzmayer moved to the US
from Russia in 1989. Her research focused on the part of the human molecular
structure that could be affected best by medicine. Holzmayer was focusing on
helping create new drugs that interfere with replication of the virus that causes
AIDS. One year earlier, Holzmayer obeyed senior management orders to fire Huang.
March 24, 2002: Dead microbiologist: David Wynn-Williams, 55, is hit by a car

was studying the capability of microbes to adapt to environmental extremes,
including the bombardment of ultraviolet rays and global warming.
March 25, 2002: Dead microbiologist: Steven Mostow, 63, dies when the airplane
he was piloting crashes near Denver, Colorado. He worked at the Colorado Health
Sciences Centre and was known as "Dr. Flu" for his expertise in treating
influenza, and expertise on bioterrorism. Mostow was one of the country's leading
infectious disease experts.
November 12 2002: Dr. Benito Que, 52, was "an expert in infectious diseases

that he had been beaten on in a carjacking in the medical school's parking lot.
Strangely enough, though, his body showed no signs of a beating.
June 24, 2003: Dr. Leland Rickman, a UC San Diego expert on infectious diseases
and, since Sept. 11, 2001 a consultant on bioterrorism. He was 47. Rickman died
while on a teaching assignment in Lesotho, a small country bordered on all sides
by South Africa. He had complained of a headache, but the cause of death was
not immediately known. The physician had been working in Lesotho with Dr. Chris
Mathews, director of the UC San Diego Medical Center's Owen Clinic, teaching
African medical personnel about the prevention and treatment of AIDS.Rickman,
the incoming president of the Infectious Disease Assn. of California, was a
multidisciplinary professor and practitioner with expertise in infectious diseases,
internal medicine, epidemiology, microbiology and antibiotic utilization
July 18, 2003: David Kelly, a British biological weapons expert, was said to
have slashed his own wrists while walking near his home. Kelly was the Ministry
of Defence's chief scientific officer and senior adviser to the proliferation
and arms control secretariat, and to the Foreign Office's non-proliferation
department. The senior adviser on biological weapons to the UN biological weapons
inspections teams(Unscom) from 1994 to 1999, he was also, in the opinion of
his peers, pre-eminent in his field, not only in this country, but in the world.
November 20, 2003: Scientist Robert Leslie Burghoff, 45 was killed by a hit
and run driver that jumped the kerb and ploughed into him in the 1600 block

April 2004: Mohammed Munim al-Izmerly, a distinguished Iraqi chemistry professor
dies in American custody from a sudden hit to the back of his head caused by
blunt trauma. It was uncertain exactly how he died, but someone had hit him
from behind, possibly with a bar or a pistol. His battered corpse turned up
at Baghdad's morgue and the cause of death was initially recorded as "brainstem
compression". It was discovered that US doctors had made a 20cm incision
in his skull.
May 5, 2004: A Russian scientist at a former Soviet biological weapons laboratory
in Siberia died after an accident with a needle laced with ebola. Scientists
and officials said the accident had raised concerns about safety and secrecy
at the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology, known as Vector,
which in Soviet times specialized in turning deadly viruses into biological
weapons. Vector has been a leading recipient of aid in an American programme.
May 14, 2004: Dr. Eugene F. Mallove, a Norwich Free Academy graduate, 56, died
after being beaten to death during an alleged robbery. Mallove was well respected
for his knowledge of cold fusion. He had just published an “open letter”
outlining the results of and reasons for his last 15 years in the field of “new
energy research.” Dr. Mallove was convinced it was only a matter of months
before the world would actually see a free energy device.
June 22, 2004: Astronomer and physicist, Austrian born Thomas Gold famous over
the years for a variety of bold theories that flout conventional wisdom died
of heart failure. Gold’s theory of the deep hot biosphere holds important
ramifications for the possibility of life on other planets, including seemingly
inhospitable planets within our own solar system. He was Professor Emeritus
of Astronomy at Cornell University and wass the founder (and for 20 years director)
of Cornell Center for Radiophysics and Space Research. He was also involved
in air accident investigation.
July 3, 2004: Dr Paul Norman, 52, of Salisbury, Wiltshire, was killed when
the single-engine Cessna 206 he was piloting crashed in Devon. He was married
with a 14-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter, and was the chief scientist
for chemical and biological defence at the Ministry of Defence’s laboratory
at Porton Down, Wiltshire. The crash site was examined by officials from the
Air Accidents Investigation Branch and the wreckage of the aircraft was removed
from the site to the AAIB base at Farnborough.
