FEMALE SERGEANT DEAD FROM
ANTHRAX SHOT - WHEN WILL
PENTAGON END THIS MADNESS?
It had to happen sooner or later. And now it has!
SGT Sandra Larson of Fort Riley, Kansas is dead of "aplastic anemia," a virulent auto immune blood disease. She died just 30 days after completing her series of Anthrax shots. Her sister, Nancy Rugo, says the young NCO "went from a healthy woman just four weeks prior to her death - June 14, 2000 - to having no bone marrow, platelets and an extremely low count of red and white blood cells. It was as if there was something in her that was killing her immune system, shutting her down."
There was no Pentagon press release from the supercilious Kenneth Bacon mourning the death of this young soldier. The "official line" must be adhered to no matter what. After all, this is a multi-million dollar "sweetheart" contract for a company owned, in part, by Bill Clinton crony, retired Admiral William Crowe. Dollars and defense contracts must always come before lives, right?
Retired Air Force LTC Redmond Handy, who resigned his officer's commission rather than participate in what he calls a "terrible crime against our men and women in uniform," warned "there are others currently at risk because of this flawed vaccine. I'm afraid SGT Larson's death won't be the last," he told MilitaryCorruption.com. "When will the Pentagon end this madness?"
In the final month of her life, Sandra told her sister it was the Anthrax shots that made her sick. SGT Larson said the threat of court-martial or prison made her reluctantly submit to the shots that ended up costing her her life.
What have we come to in this country when an unholy trio like Bill "I loathe the military" Clinton, Secretary of Defense (never served a day in uniform) William Cohen, and that bloated political chameleon, retired Navy Admiral William Crowe, can cook up a money-making scam that would even put Al Capone to shame?
Everyone knows in business you need to "corner the market" on your product. And what better way to garner a "captive audience" than to dictate court martial or prison for any service member who declines to be "guinea pigged" with a questionable "vaccine?"
It's even better that BioPort of Lansing, Michigan - owned in part by Crowe and his mysterious friend El Fahoud - are the only manufacturers of the so-called "vaccine" in the United States. They get the "sweetheart" multi-million-dollar contract.
And when the FDA repeatedly shuts BioPort down for "unsanitary conditions" and other serious violations, what happens but the Pentagon throws more money at the Michigan facility! Is it possible that Crowe's endorsement of draft-dodger Clinton in the 1992 campaign had something to do with it?
After all, no one would have mistaken Crowe for a liberal Democrat. He served as Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff under President Ronald Reagan and George Bush. But, when the time was right, according to political insiders, he "stuck the knife into Bush's back" and was rewarded by Clinton with the post of ambassador to Great Britain. No accident there, either.
The Pentagon won't admit to the real number of officers and enlisted members who have refused the shot and been punished, but by their own calculations, it is nearly a thousand. Let's take the low number and contemplate the damage to the military's morale as well as the severe loss of trained pilots and flight crews, experienced officers and NCO's from all the branches of service whose lives have been destroyed.
At best, this was a needless waste of money, a reward to a political supporter who might be inclined to "donate" to a campaign or "presidential library" down the road. At worst, this is one of the most craven outrages perpetrated against this nation's military in our history, and no amount of penance will assuage all the suffering and misery caused by this callous and criminal policy.
Handy, president of the National Organization of Americans Battling Unnecessary Servicemember Endangerment, tells MilitaryCorruption.com "certain members of Congress are still protecting this vaccine as if it were the Holy Grail. Some of them even want to expand its use by producing it at a second location - and they want to hide it from further scrutiny by manufacturing it at a government-owned facility, instead of a private business."
Why? The answer can be summed up in four words: FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL.
