- Sandpoint, ID - Surgeon General David Satcher's letter
in USA Today ("Immunization a must: Protects all," August 19.
1999), in which he complained that vaccine risks were overstated in an
earlier cover story ("Now parents fear shots," Aug. 3, 1999),
was harshly criticized as "genocidal propaganda" by a recognized
expert in public health education, Dr. Leonard Horowitz.
- Dr. Horowitz, director of a health science publishing
group (Tetrahedron Press, 208-265-2575) had received an invitation to meet
with Dr. Satcher to "discuss issues of mutual interest" regarding
vaccine risks when the surgeon general was still directing the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Satcher cancelled the meeting
citing a "lack of credible scientific evidence."
- "Dr. Satcher's comment that 'serious [vaccine] side
effects are extremely rare,' follows in the great tradition of Nazi spin
doctor Josef Goebbles," Dr. Horowitz said. "In recent months,
our vaccine research network, including many reputable scientists, has
helped reform military and public vaccine policies concerning anthrax,
hepatitis B, and polio due to risks far greater than the surgeon general
- The oral polio and hepatitis B vaccines were particularly
troubling to Dr. Horowitz and affiliated anti-vaccine activists due to
government documents published in his bestselling book "Emerging Viruses:
AIDS & Ebola-Nature, Accident or Intentional?" (Tetrahedron Press,
$29.95; 1-888-508-4787). The text, recently credited during the CDC's Advisory
Committee on Immunization Practices by Dr. Robert Chen as among the most
persuasive risk awareness works supporting the anti-vaccination movement,
was reviewed by Dr. Satcher.
- "I assume Dr. Satcher noted the contracts under
which numerous immune system destroying viruses, similar to the AIDS virus
(HIV), were secretly prepared during the late 1960s by biological weapons
contractors and the military chimpanzee supplier Litton Bionetics. Dr.
Satcher even received the contract under which Litton shipped contaminated
primates to the Merck pharmaceutical company," Dr. Horowitz said.
- Merck's chief vaccine maker, Dr Maurice Hilleman, likewise
testified that he "didn't know we were importing AIDS virus at the
time" the contaminated monkeys entered his primate containment and
vaccine production facilities.
- According to the evidence Dr. Horowitz provided Dr. Satcher,
contaminated monkeys and chimpanzees were used by the CDC, FDA, and Merck
vaccine makers to develop the hepatitis B vaccine injected into gay men
in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa in 1974. "This was perfectly
timed for the emergence of HIV, related to a chimpanzee virus, four years
later, " Dr. Horowitz reported during a scientific session at the
XI International Conference on AIDS.
- Following Dr. Satcher's implied denial of CDC wrongdoing,
Dr. Horowitz issued a formal complaint to his network, carried by national
newswires. Dr. Satcher's inability to see the incriminating evidence at
the time he was being considered for the surgeon general post was reminiscent
of the story told in "The Emperor's New Clothes." "Here
was a Black man who could watch his own people in the U.S. and Africa,
and millions of others around the world, die without seeing anything,"
Dr. Horowitz lamented. "The surgeon general's uniform suited him perfectly."
- According to Ingri Cassel, cofounder of the North Idaho
chapter of Vaccination Liberation, partly responsible for her region's
lowest vaccination rate in the nation, "Dr. Horowitz's inflammatory
statements are appropriate under the circumstances." Ms. Cassel believes
that sufficient scientific evidence exists linking vaccines to a plethora
of autoimmune disease epidemics, cancers, and even female infertility.
"The evidence warrants a more thorough investigation than recently
done by Congress," she said.
- Genocide is defined as the mass murder of people for
political and/or economic reasons. During the late 1980s, experimental
tetanus vaccines containing the sterilizing hormone HCG were given to millions
of unsuspecting women in the Americas and in several Third World nations.
"Today, 25 percent of Black women in urban America, and 35 percent
of native American women, are sterile," Dr. Horowitz said. "What
a convenient 'act of nature' for those who fund population reduction programs
including the world's largest vaccine maker-Merck. If that's not the grossest
conflict of interest in Earth's history, I don't know what is."
- Records show the Merck pharmaceutical company received
a major share of the Nazi "flight capital" at the close of World
War II when its president, George W. Merck, was America's biological weapons
industry director. These facts were revealed by Norman Covert, Army public
relations director at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD, and veteran news correspondent
Paul Manning in his book "Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile" (Lyle
Stuart, Inc, 1981).
- "It's likely no 'accident' or 'act of nature' that
today, after HIV has devastated populations in Central Africa and gay America,
that 73 percent of AIDS cases in the United States are Black and Hispanic.
Could today's public health units and physicians offices be like the concentration
camps of yesteryear?" Dr. Horowitz, the son of a holocaust survivor,
questioned. "Are modern vaccines being used in place of the gas? Given
the evidence, we may want to change Dr. Satcher's title to 'surgeon genocide.'"
