As to the argument that man did not know how to create the ebola virus in the 50s, the critics are not appropriately answering the scenarios raised by Dr. Horowitz. Specifically, Dr, Horowitz spends a great deal of time discussing the possiblities of:
1) Careless "professionals" allowing contamination from existing virus samples.
2) An existing virus, from one host, from which another host becomes infected, with the result being that the virus mutates in the new host to a variation of the original virus, a mutated virus for which not only can we not create, we also don't have a cure for (as in the case of AIDS).
3) A criminally misguided government official, someone such as, say, a Henry Kissinger who we know touted the the benefits of population control, who might have sent signals to outfits such as the CIA whose job it is to be paranoid to the extreme and who could obtain funding for top secret virus research for which the "experts" writing reviews here would know none of the details of what man was, or was not, capable of creating in a lab.
This is a must read for any sane person who recognizes the foolishness of sticking your head in the sand to avoid seeing the lion charging at your butt.
Emerging Viruses is a pivotal work, a landmark book. It is certainly not for the average reader, because of the technical nature of many of the medical concepts and also simply because of the overwhelming amount of information it ties together in order to support its premises. Works this meticulously researched can hardly be challenged, except by dimwits who would do so on an emotional or political level. Most likely those who do challenge Horowitz have not managed to actually read the book.
This is not some wacky conspiracy theory Dr. Strangelove whim. Horowitz has thoroughly demonstrated the plausibility and likelihood that -AIDS virus was deliberately manmade - it was deployed into populations in Zaire, New York and San Francisco - it was a longterm biological weapons project that got a little out of control - but it's OK, because the players are still in control: AIDS will bring billions in research, worthless drugs and vaccines, and political leverage.
The dynamics of vaccine development are brilliantly illuminated - the international pharmaceutical industry, the governments of the US, Germany, and England, the arms dealers, and the international banking institutions. This is the milieu in which the current vaccination program at large today in the US must be evaluated. Health, immunity, disease control, infant mortality -- these issue are secondary to the economic and political forces in play. What a shock - corruption at city hall. But this book goes beyond what even the most jaded of us have been able to put together. The entire concept of vaccines as a treatment for any disease should now be re-thought in the light of Horowitz's stunning work.

This book is a must read TODAY, for anyone traveling, meeting lots of people for the first time, or going to the African continent. For the first time, the myth of the Green Monkey bite source for the rapid spread of AIDS disease, which under close scrutiny, it appears was specifically designed by agents of our Government, with the votes and appropriations of tax-payers money by Ex-Congressman Sikes, a southern democrat, who found ways to use his Committee position to financially help himself in his 1st Florida Congressional district. Though the fast spending and hawkish Mr. Sikes, is gone, the Tax-payers money he voted to spend back in the 1970's for research to develope a disease for which there was NO cure, is still taking, if you can bring yourself to believe and accept the documented track record and facts in Dr. Horowitz's book, still claiming American and African lives.
It was originally intended as a biological weapon against the Soviet's who were suspected of developing the same type of biological weapon. Or was there a more sinister motive?
If Hitlers extermination camps are empty and vacant, perhaps those carrying out the Human Death sentence are still among us and perhaps no vaccination serum can be trusted, today. Certainly, millions of Africans who were vaccinated by W.H.O. for other diseases in the 1970's and 1980's, are dying today from AIDS on a scale hard for the western mind to comprehend. How often many of us go to a friendly local doctor to get a vaccinations for us or our children. Do we ask, "Dr. can you personally affirm that you have checked all the microbes and know this serum is safe?" Of course not. If W.H.O.Read more ›
