AIDS: A U.S.- Made Monster?

PREFACE

In an extensive article in the Summer-Autumn 1990 issue of "Top Secret", Prof J. Segal and Dr.
L. Segal outline their theory that AIDS is a man-made disease, originating at Pentagon
bacteriological warfare labs at Fort Detrick, Maryland. "Top Secret" is the international edition
of the German magazine Geheim and is considered by many to be a sister publication to the
American Covert Action Information Bulletin (CAIB). In fact, Top Secret carries the Naming
Names column, which CAIB is prevented from doing by the American government, and which
names CIA agents in different locations in the world. The article, named "AIDS: US-Made
Monster" and subtitled "AIDS - its Nature and its Origins," is lengthy, has a lot of
professional terminology and is dotted with footnotes.

AIDS FACTS

"The fatal weakening of the immune system which has given AIDS its name (Acquired
Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome)," write the Segals, "has been traced back to a destruction or a
functional failure of the T4-lymphocytes, also called ‘helper cells‘, which play a regulatory role
in the production of antibodies in the immune system." In the course of the illness, the
number of functional T4-cells is reduced greatly so that new anti-bodies cannot be produced
and the defenceless patient remains exposed to a range of infections that under other
circumstances would have been harmless. Most AIDS patients die from opportunistic
infections rather than from the AIDS virus itself. The initial infection is characterized by
diarrhea, erysipelas and intermittent fever. An apparent recovery follows after 2-3 weeks, and
in many cases the patient remains without symptoms and functions normally for years.
Occasionally a swelling of the lymph glands, which does not affect the patient’s well-being,
can be observed.

After several years, the pre-AIDS stage, known as ARC (Aids- Related Complex) sets in. This
stage includes disorders in the digestive tract, kidneys and lungs. In most cases it develops
into full-blown AIDS in about a year, at which point opportunistic illnesses occur. Parallel to
this syndrome, disorders in various organ systems occur, the most severe in the brain, the
symptoms of which range from motoric disorders to severe dementia and death. This set of
symptoms, say the Segals, is identical in every detail with the Visna sickness which occurs in
sheep, mainly in Iceland. (Visna means tiredness in Icelandic). However, the visna virus is not
pathogenic for human beings. The Segals note that despite the fact that AIDS is transmitted
only through sexual intercourse, blood transfusions and non- sterile hypodermic needles, the
infection has spread dramatically. During the first few years after its discovery, the number of
AIDS patients doubled every six months, and is still doubling every 12 months now though
numerous measures have been taken against it. Based on these figures, it is estimated that in
the US, which had 120,000 cases of AIDS at the end of 1988, 900,000 people will have AIDS or
will have died of it by the end of 1991. It is also estimated that the number of people infected is
at least ten times the number of those suffering from an acute case of AIDS. That in the year
1995 there will be between 10-14 million cases of AIDS and an additional 100 million people
infected, 80 percent of them in the US, while a possible vaccination will not be available before
1995 by the most optimistic estimates. Even when such vaccination becomes available, it will
not help those already infected. These and following figures have been reached at by several
different mainstream sources, such as the US Surgeon General and the Chief of the medical
services of the US Army.

"AIDS does not merely bring certain dangers with it; it is clearly a programmed catastrophe
for the human race, whose magnitude is comparable only with that of a nuclear war", say the
Segals. " They later explain what they mean by "programmed," showing that the virus was
produced by humans, namely Dr. Robert Gallo of the Bethesda Cancer Research Center in
Maryland. When proceeding to prove their claims, the Segals are careful to note that:

"We have given preference to the investigative results of highly renowned laboratories,
whose objective contents cannot be doubted. We must emphasize, in this connection, that we
do not know of any findings that have been published in professional journals that contradict
our hypotheses."

DISCOVERING AIDS

The first KNOWN cases of AIDS occurred in New York in 1979. The first DESCRIBED cases
were in California in 1979. The virus was isolated in Paris in May 1983, taken from a French
homosexual who had returned
