October Surprises: The U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, Michael Leavitt, has declared a series of 'public health emergencies' -- due to risk of a bioterrorism attack.

In researching (see below) ‘Mail carriers escorted by police to bring drugs in anthrax attack’ I found the following information.
It seems to me a grand conglomeration of the US’s preparing (in more ways than one) for bioterrorism and nuclear fallout while doubly making sure the manufacturer and distributors can’t be touched legally in the case of death or injury due to the vaccines.
My conspiracy theory senses begin to boil when not only do they have the ways and the means to the action - but the legal flack jacket firmly placed over the pharmaceuticals wallet - even before such an emergency breaks.

The mixed messages here are:

1) There’s going to be an attack
2) They've already gone through "full-scale exercises" in Seattle, Philadelphia and Boston
3) The vaccines are not and were never certified to protect against "weaponized" airborne anthrax spores
4) They've made sure you can’t sue anybody if you or yours die/injured after taking the vaccine
5) Let’s not forget the military will be involved in distribution and martial law.
6) **Strange as it may sounds, thanks to this declaration of public emergency - if your Botox injections go awry - you can’t take legal action.

IMO the threat is looming and closing at an alarming rate.

Here’s some info and links - or go here -


Oct. 1, 2008: U.S. Declares a 'public health emergency' due to the risk of a bioterrorism attack. HHS Secretary, Michael Leavitt, said the emergency began on Oct. 1 and would run through Dec. 31, 2015. The declaration establishes legal immunity for public and private officials who oversee the production or distribution of the anthrax vaccine.


* Public Health Emergency Declared - (Martial Law via Presidential Directive/HSPD21)
* Legal Immunity for Officials


Consumer advocates see action as giveaway to the drug industry that strips the public of legal protections.
17 Oct 2008 - In a little noticed move,
federal officials this month have declared a series of public health emergencies relating to potential weapons of biological terror. On Oct. 1, Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt declared an anthrax public health emergency. On Oct. 10, he declared health emergencies for smallpox, radiation sickness from the detonation of a nuclear device and poisoning from botulinum toxins, the active ingredient of Botox. There’s no clear evidence that terrorists have managed to weaponize anthrax or stolen large caches of Botox from cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills. But by declaring these public health emergencies, HHS has granted manufacturers of anti-terrorism drugs and vaccines and **others involved with the products protection from lawsuits if the drugs were to cause unfortunate side effects.


* Leaving the public with NO legal protection

On a side note: ** Regardless if terrorists use stolen Botox to make a weapons grade botulinum toxins HHS has granted even *others* involved with the *Products* protection from lawsuits if the drugs were to cause side effects.
Hmmm... Just weird this stuff.


Mail carriers escorted by police to bring drugs in anthrax attack - HHS science advisor: Attack using crop-dusting airplane dumping anthrax spores over a city is a possible scenario 01 Oct 2008 Government mail carriers would deliver emergency supplies of antibiotics to people in U.S. cities in the case of an anthrax attack, U.S. Department of Health and HHS officials said on Wednesday. he system has been tested in three large [blue] cities -- Seattle, Philadelphia and Boston. The mail carriers would be escorted by local police as they deliver supplies of a few days' worth of antibiotics directly to residences throughout an affected community.


* The means of distribution’s been established.
* The cities having been established.
* Let’s not forget the history surrounding the Twin Towers Tragedy. The U.S stating to the public they could *never have foreseen* such a means of attack, later it being exposed years before the incident the U.S having planned drills around such a scenario.

This déjà vu is frightening.


Judge Affirms Win for Plaintiffs in Anthrax-I Case. For the first time, a federal judge last month declared six U.S. defense personnel the definitive winners in a four-year court battle over the anthrax vaccine. They won the first round of litigation in October 2004, when Sullivan issued a permanent injunction banning mandatory inoculations. Based on a finding that the vaccine was never certified to protect against "weaponized" airborne anthrax spores, the judge declared the Pentagon’s mandatory vaccinations "illegal."


*So if it's not certified what's this all about? Drug companies? Public control? This just reeks of something - But What?


37 Human Anthrax cases in Northern Iraq outbreak
12 Oct 2008 Thirty-seven people have been infected by anthrax in northern Iraq in the country's first outbreak of the disease since the 1980s.


* Is this what a false flag terrorist attack will be blamed on?

Something about this whole thing just seethes *wrong*. The threats, fear mongering, preparing for the inevitable with a vaccine that’s never been certified to protect against "weaponized" airborne anthrax. Mail carriers volunteered to distribute the vaccine, under military/police guard, in cities where dry runs have already taken place?

It’s Monday morning, days before the election.
I’ve feared *something* would happen to postpone the elections so I’m bringing this to the table for discussion.
I surely hope I’m wrong and a bioterrorist event is NOT in our near future.

Thanks for your time...

...taps...

Edit: Changed "dry-run" to "full-scale exercise" thanks to Beavergs post.

Just for fairness sake these 'dry runs' in Portland and other cities should be called "full-scale exercises" instead. There is nothing wrong with full-scale exercises; It allows the EMA to put a plan to use in real time and let's them tweak any mistakes before they come about.

But there is a lot of intriguing stuff you've got linked, like the "public health emergency" starting 10/1/08 and ending in 2015. I wonder if it has anything to do with Codex Alimentarius.

What I am finding VERY out of place is the fact that the cdc and all the rest of them NEVER have issued a "warning" unless it has already happened and on a grand scale somewhere.Certainly not with a few hundred but thousands of people being affected. IMO the not being able to sue thing is a side track away from the warnings in the first place.

The only ones who can do weaponize anthrax are the US and British military.

So if there's an attack with this kind of weapon: INSIDE JOB.

Where did you get this from?
There is no declared public health emergency.

One of the things I'm trying to piece together...
Thanks

Theres s few documentaries out there which people claim the US will use bio-terrorism on its own citizens, some of which some can be found on this site below.

In my own opinion it sounds like people are being scared into a certain direction by officials, they are using fear as a way of securing there own objectives.

Thank you for the link - I'll check it out now and head back in a bit.

Have to take a look at "Codex Alimentarius" also - thanks Beaverg.

Is it normal for a Public Health Emergency to last 7 years!? 2015 seems a little too much time for a declared 'emergency' to me, but then again I don't know a whole lot about this kind of stuff.

This whole thing does seem sketchy...there's too much going on right now to not warrant suspicion.

Hopefully nothing happens but this is just another attempt at the PTB to derail this election. It's just fear mongering they would have never let this leak if it was truly going to happen. False Flag Terror usually occurs without any prior warning. That is the best way to induce fear which is the primary goal of FFT. So if we are all expecting it and letting others know about it it is unlikely to happen. Although the PTB have been getting desperate they might just go through with the plan. We who saw it coming and protest will just be thrown into those Fema Camps.

Actually you seem to have frogotten that the former Soviet Union has stockpiles of the same stuff. It has been said that it is not always closely guarded.

Smallpox poses an unusually serious threat; in part, because virtually everyone is now susceptible, vaccination having stopped worldwide 20 or more years ago as a result of the eradication of the disease.

Because of waning immunity, it is probable that no more than 20% of the population is protected. Among the unprotected, case fatality rates after infection with smallpox are 30%. There is no treatment. Virus, in aerosol form, can survive for 24 hours or more and is highly infectious even at low dosages

An outbreak in which as few as 100 people were infected would quickly tax the resources of any community. There would be both actual cases and people with a fever and rash for whom the diagnosis was uncertain. In all, 200 or more patients would probably have to be treated in the first wave of cases. Most of the patients would be extremely ill with severe aching pains and high fever and would normally be hospitalized.

Hospitalization poses problems, however. Because of the risk of widespread transmission of the virus, patients would have to be confined to rooms under negative pressure that were equipped with special filters to prevent the escape of the virus. Hospitals have few rooms so ventilated; there would, for example, probably be less than 100 in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

A vaccination program would have to be undertaken rapidly to protect as many as possible of those who had been in contact with the patients. Vaccination given within 3 to 4 days after exposure can protect most people against a fatal outcome and may prevent the disease entirely. It is unlikely, however, that smallpox would be diagnosed early enough and vaccination programs launched rapidly enough to prevent infection of many of the people exposed during the first wave.

Few physicians have ever seen smallpox and few, if any, have ever received training in its diagnosis. Moreover, mounting a vaccination campaign requires time unless there has been advance planning, and no city has yet done such planning. The human immunodeficiency virus epidemic and the more general issue of vaccine complications among immunosuppressed populations introduce added complexity to decision-making regarding smallpox vaccination administration.

A second wave of cases would be almost inevitable. From experiences with smallpox imported into Europe over the past 40 years, it is estimated that there would be at least 10 secondary cases for every case in the first wave or 1000 cases in all, appearing some 14 days after the first wave. Vaccination would initially be needed for health workers, essential service personnel, and contacts of patients at home and at work.

With mounting numbers of cases, contacts, and involved areas, mass vaccination would soon be the only practical approach. That would not be possible, however, because present vaccine supplies are too limited, there being approximately 5 to 7 million doses currently available.

To put this number in perspective, in New York City in 1947, 6 million people were vaccinated over approximately 1 week in response to a total of eight cases of smallpox. Moreover, there are no longer any manufacturers of smallpox vaccine. Best estimates indicate that substantial additional supplies could not be ensured sooner than 36 months from the initial outbreak.

Will they tell us to duct tape our windows this time?

Funny they suggested that to us before.


If we did actually manage to make our house bio-terrorist proof with duct tape, we would also cut off something we need to live any way - oxygen.

In answer to your question I did not *remove* your name from that essay and I highly resent the insinuation I did.

Nor did I ever present that article as anything other than something I had found, making sure I included all links to each and every quote I used, urging people to read the complete article.

Is adding a link with a working URL and directing people to go to said link not enough - Just tell me!
But do not, I don’t care who you are, EVER insinuate I plagiarize or take credit where it isn’t due me - especially when the proof is right there in the post I linked to your external sight.

I realize this is off topic but I am not going to sit back and say nothing when such grave insinuations are made.

Thanks for the link - I read this before, but so glad you pointed it out to me again - I caught this little snip this time --->


In addition to 1st BCT, other Army units will take part in the two-week training exercise, including elements of the 1st Medical Brigade out of Fort Hood, Texas, and the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Bragg, N.C.

There also will be Air Force engineer and medical units, the Marine Corps Chemical, Biological Initial Reaction Force


Biological Initial Reaction Force?

Good find Witness2008 thank you!
