US military chiefs ordered to reveal if Pentagon used diseased insects as biological weapon

US lawmakers have voted to demand the Pentagon discloses whether it conducted experiments to “weaponise” disease-carrying ticks – and whether any such insects were let loose outside the lab.

A bill passed in the House of Representatives requires the Defence Department’s inspector general to investigate whether biological warfare tests involving the tiny arachnids took place over a 25-year period.It follows claims that Pentagon researchers implanted diseases into inspects to study the potential of biological weapons in the decades after the Second World War.

A tick-related amendment, first reported by Roll Call, was added to the fiscal 2020 defence authorisation bill by Republican congressman Chris Smith prior to its passing in the House.
A book released earlier this year, entitled Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons, sets out the case that the Defence Department did conduct research on biological warfare.Author Kris Newby also suggests a possible relationship between the experiments and the spread of Lyme disease – an infectious disease spread by ticks causing fever, headaches and fatigue.“We need answers and we need them now,” said Mr Smith, a founding co-chairman of the Congressional Lyme Disease Caucus, which advocates for greater understanding of the disease.

After the armistice in Korea was signed the UN sent a team headed by the scientist Joseph Needham of Cambridge University to Korea to investigate allegations that the US had used infected insects against North Korea. They came to the conclusion that they had.
Prof. Jacob Segal of Humboldt University wrote about three articles in the internet, showing that it was almost certain that the US military had invented AIDS by merging two viruses, a sheep disease called iirc Visna and a virus which causes a blood cancer in humans. This, of course was furiously disputed and there has been an ongoing attempt to suppress this, but what is in the congressional record is that the US military did ask congress to finance research to produce just such a disease in the 1970s and they were voted $10milliion to do so. Segal’s papers have disappeared from the internet fairly recently (at least I can no longer find them) but if you google “Was there an AIDS Contract” you can read about the problems faced by someone who tried to find out whether Segal was right or not.
