Saudi Entrepreneur Adnan Khashoggi
Linked to 911 Terrorists


By Alex Constantine

"'Our family has been through a living hell to almost see your 23-year-old
son die,' exclaims Cheryl. 'The government is wrong, and they need to take
care of all these people that they've hurt.' The Department of defense says
they continue to believe that the vaccine is 'safe' ..." -

Fuad El-Hibri arranged investments for well-heeled Saudi clients as a broker
at Citibank's Jeddah office. Tom Suber, a contributor to the Rouge Forum, a
grassroots Internet think-tank, reports that he handled "the individual
financial holdings of the bin Laden family group and the larger $18 billion
Carlyle Group."

The bin Ladens and Carlyle are "reputed to have had partnership interests
with Fuad El-Hibri's Porton, International and Bioport investments. These
embarrassing partnerships are the result of complex web of interlocking
private corporate holdings and are publicly denied by the El-Hibri family."1

Carlyle Management Group, of course, is America's 11th leading defense
contractor, founded by Iran-contra's Frank Carlucci, James Baker III and
George H.W. Bush.

Ties to the bin Ladens and Carlyle constituted one "embarrassing" pact with
the devil. Another was El-Hibri's acquisition of the Center for Applied
Microbiology and Research (CAMR) at Porton Downs in the UK, a
government-held toxic stockpile-research laboratory privatized by Margaret
Thatcher. CAMR was launched under private ownership - El-Hibri's - as
Porton, International in 1993.

Porton Downs was the English mirror-image of Ft. Detrick. Both military
laboratories conducted Auschwitz-style experiments on human subjects during
the Cold War. In 2002, Express reported that scientists of the Ministry of
Defense faced prosecution "over horrifying experiments on service men and
women during chemical and biological weapons tests."

Subjects were duped into volunteering, led to believe that the military
doctors were searching for an innocuous "cold cure." The guinea-pigs said
they were "impregnated with deadly chemical agents such as sarin and mustard
gas." Ronald Maddison, a volunteer airman, died after a cloth treated with
sarin was wrapped round his arm. Another subject said he was coerced to
participate "under threat of court martial. During three nightmare weeks at
the center, he said he was stripped to his underpants and marched repeatedly
into gas chambers where he was impregnated with sarin, tabin and mustard

El-Hibri inherited a horror factory, and this it remained. By 1996, Suber
says, "the rape of the public resources of Great Britain was virtually
complete," speaking of the "conservative" agenda behind privatization. The
profit-lusting "interests of the Saudis and the Carlyle Group began to look
to the United States for more promising plunder."

Michigan Governor John Engler was urged by fellow Republicans to privatize
the state-owned vaccination lab - exactly as Thatcher had done with CAMR. It
was renamed the Michigan Biologics Products Institute.

"Governor Engler gave the most respectable and profitable agency in Michigan
government to Fuad El-Hibri without any individual investment whatsoever,"
Suber writes. The new owners "incurred no individual expense, made no
investments, and did not owe any individual promissory notes or obligations
of any kind for their new lab purchase. Receipt of a $180 million business
for absolutely nothing. The next hand-out the company received was an
unsecured, interest-free loan of $18.7 million as an advance payment from
the Defense Department "3

All this fuss and expense over a vaccine that didn't even work against
inhalation anthrax it just made people sick.

But homeland defense was never the idea, as Houston attorney Linda Minor
noted after scanning BioPort's directors' page: "This group is obviously an
investment syndicate composed of numerous intelligence agency members
representing assorted countries"4

Bio-economic terrorism is the CIA's kind of low-intensity warfare. Dr. Edgar
J. DaSilva, director of the Division of Life Sciences of the UN, says the
approach is predicated on "the undermining and destruction of economic
progress and stability" by "the development and use of biological agents
against economic targets such as crops, livestock and ecosystems."

Germs, bacilli and viruses have certain advantages over conventional
armaments - explosives and noxious gases have to be explained, but viral
agents are plausibly deniable: "Such warfare can always be carried out under
the pretexts that such traumatic occurrences are the result of natural
circumstances that lead to outbreaks of diseases and disasters of either
endemic or epidemic proportions."5 The Zimbabwe anthrax outbreak, the West
Nile Virus, conceived at SAIC-USAMRIID, for instance. Add a trained
provocateur - a biochemical warfare specialist from a Rhodesian death squad
with a parafascist history will do - a little media manipulation, and the
result is anthrax psychosis.

That's exactly what the collective response was called in Argentina when a
false alarm was tripped by a suspect piece of mail. "Anthrax psychosis," an
Argentine newspaper reported, spread in October 2001, "when a travel
brochure mailed from Miami to a Buenos Aires family initially tested
positive." The spores tested inactive the second time, but "within hours,
frantic citizens swamped police stations, hospitals and all kinds of
government offices throughout the country with about 1,000 pieces of
suspicious mail, most of them posted from the United States or Pakistan."6

The Ame strain did get around. The lethal dust was found in mail rooms in
a Princeton borough in the Senate in Dan Rather's CBS office in a
Kabul factory in New York City Hall in a diplomatic pouch to the US
Consulate General in Yekaterinburg, Russia in the Supreme Court's basement
mailroom in a letter mailed to Kenya at the Bureau of Prisons
headquarters in Washington at the broadcaster's headquarters in 30
Rockefeller Plaza on and on.

And the FBI, by focusing on Hatfill, gave the false impression that the
perpetrator was a lone gunman. He had accomplices, ran with a death squad in
the United States as he did in Rhodesia.

The anthrax plot - as reconstructed by Leonard Horowitz, Robert Lederer and
other researchers - began with the meeting at the White House regarding the
fate of OraVax, attended by representatives of the company, the
administration, and DoD officials. It was agreed that the company, facing
bankruptcy, would receive a pass to inventory vaccines. The idea was to
allow OraVax to bail itself out with government contracts, not murder.

But some of those attending this meeting were active in the 911 loop. Our
American Pinay Circle. One of them was William Patrick III, President and
CEO of Advanced Biosystems Inc. (ABS). Patrick ran the anthrax
"weaponization" program at the Ft. Detrick-SAIC lab where Hatfill worked. In
1999, Patrick wrote a study, according to the Baltimore Sun, that discussed
"the danger of anthrax spores spreading through the air and the requirements
for decontamination after various kinds of attacks. The author, William C.
Patrick III, describes placing 2.5 grams of Bacillus globigii, an anthrax
simulant, in a standard business envelope - slightly more than the estimated
amount of anthrax in each of the letters that killed five people last fall"

Stephen Hatfill, we learn, "is a friend and protegé of Patrick, 75, a
bio-weapons legend who has himself experienced the dual status of expert and
possible suspect"7
