The Bush Administration's Secret Biowarfare Agenda

At the same time, ample evidence "confirms that the US has built an extensive arsenal of biological weapons (in blatant violation) of international laws and covenants." It was enlarged in the 1980s and 1990s but significantly expanded under George Bush on the pretext of being strictly "defensive" and to "curb the use of germ warfare by 'rogue states.' "

On October 29, 2002, the London Guardian reported that "Respected scientists on both sides of the Atlantic warned that the US is (illegally) developing a new generation of weapons that undermine and possibly violate international treaties on biological and chemical warfare" - ironically at the same time it accused Iraq of these same type violations.

University of Bradford international security professor Malcolm Dando and University of California microbiology lecturer Mark Wheelis accused the Bush administration of "encouraging a breakdown in arms control" treaties by secretly conducting these programs. Dando said they include:

    -- developing a cluster bomb to disperse bioweapons;

    -- building a bioweapons plant from commercially available materials to prove "terrorists" can do it;

    -- genetically engineering a more potent anthrax strain;

    -- producing dried and weaponized anthrax spores in quantities far larger than for research;

    -- researching and producing hallucinogenic weapons such as BZ gas; and

    -- developing "non-lethal" weapons similar to the gas Russia used to end the 2002 Moscow theater siege that killed around 170 people and injured hundreds.
