Errors and omissions

July 22, 2010

 

Error and omissions in the books and films:
The first edition of the book was completed without an editor and contains many spelling errors due to missing spell check software in WORDPAD.  In addition there are errors such as the incorrect name for one of the world’s best tennis players who died while being injected with experimental drugs under MKULTRA.  Army intelligence officer Lt Col Michael Aquino is referred to as NSA General Aquino and his cult is The Temple of Set and not the Church of Set.  Some nonlethal weapons experts scientists names have been misspelled.  The book jacket states that the editor “developed a novel drug” to treat antibiotic resistant Yersinia Pestis while it should say the editor “worked towards developing”.  The work consumed several years but the grant was not funded and in the end the drug was not produced.  These errors and omissions have been largely corrected in the second edition after an editor was employed.  The first edition is still for sale and has not been corrected due to the cost of replacement ($500).  All the errors are not crucial to the overall message about nonlethal weapons crimes against humanity.  The authors whose work has been used have been given credit in footnotes and in the bibliography.  There have been some omissions to this list of authors cited but these will be corrected and given public credit when the names are brought to the editor’s attention.  Errors in the films are also due to such factors as a lack of an editor due to financial constraints.  There are more than 200 short films and more than four full length documentary films in the public domain.  The editor has not gone back to correct the early films but has instead created new films that are corrected versions of the original films.  There will be references to errors in the films that have been corrected in the later editions and these errors in older films should be compared to the latest film version.  This methodology is due to time and money constraints as well as the need to publish books and films quickly, even if these original versions contained errors.  This haste was due in part to the gravity of the crimes and the emergency response methodology dictated by such a terrible state of affairs that includes torture of women and children.  These small scale errors do not compromise the basic premise and factual basis of the charges of criminal activity by INSCOM and others.  Please do not allow spelling errors and errors of rank or the correct name of a satanic cult stop the quest for justice.
There is a strong possibility that the perpetrators will be able to alter the books, films, blogs, and other resources on the internet.  To simplify the process of making the case for INSCOM crimes against humanity the information has been reduced to FOUR FACTS.  The case narrowed to four facts includes: public examples of the weapons exist, there is a prior pattern of criminal behavior, credible witnesses who fit a profile, and persons of interest in INSCOM.  This allows the case to be made in stark, simple terms, and makes it harder for the perpetrators to confuse the public by using disinformation.  The subject is complex enough to fill a semester of college study and as such it is easy to sidetrack and confuse people by leading the discussion in directions that lead nowhere and using half truths, errors in logic, and out right lies.  The Four Facts prove to any logical open minded person that there is a strong likelihood of criminal activity of the kind discribed.
Once again, innocent men, women, and children are being used as human guinea pigs in a weapons development program.  Their terrible suffering is unimaginable and cannot be allowed to continue another day.  Please concentrate on the message itself and not the flawed messenger.  God bless, Marshall Gregory Thomas

Phage Drug

July 22, 2010

 

PHAGE DRUG: It was March, 2004, when I decided on a course of action that might work.  I had been thinking for a long time during my studies at Texas Tech University about the possibilities of bacteriophage therapy or phage therapy.  Phage is a fancy word for virus and the idea is to use virus against harmful bacteria.  For every type of bacteria in the world there are many virus that predate or feed on it.   The idea is to find the viruses which are most efficient at killing the specific bacteria you want to control.  It is an idea perfected by Felix d’Herrelle and it is a technique older than antibiotics.  These virus do not attack eukaryotic cells (human tissue) but invade and lyse (kill) prokaryotic cells (bacteria).  These are two very distinct types of cells and the human cells are not at all a target of bacteriophage, they are immune from harm.  The former USSR had learned that hard way that they could not keep up with the US in the arms race by matching us nuclear bomb for nuclear bomb.  It was just too expensive so they came up with a different strategy.  After an initial nuclear exchange with the US in WWIII they planned to use missiles to rain down anthrax and bubonic plague germs on our cities and break our will to fight.  It was called project Bonfire.  The USSR calculated that they would have about two weeks or more prior warning that WWIII was about to begin so they would begin massive production of many thousands of tons of germ weapons and transfer these onto refrigerated warheads on top of ICBM’s.  The USSR devoted billions of rubles and hundreds of thousands of scientists, technicians, and workers to this task for decades.  In the end they evolved the mature capability to do just that which they planned.  Anthrax cannot be spread from person to person but the plague bioweapon can be spread from lung to lung and would theoretically be capable of killing much of the population of the US if they decided to use it.  In the Middle Ages certain varieties of the plague (septicemic) killed over 90% of the people exposed.
I began to research bacteriophage therapy and which phage worked on the germ that causes bubonic plague (Yersinia pestis). I read every paper I could find and spent every waking hour trying to find the perfect phage.  In a matter of weeks I had found the exact phage I was looking for.  In laboratory tests it had lysed or killed nearly every single strain of plague out of the 2,000 strains they had tested it on.  I created a website (phage4.org) and a company (Leonardo Concepts Inc.).  The website was designed to show the PhD’s, the NIH and people like USAMRID that I was for real when I asked for information and later money.  I emailed and called all the major companies in the world that made phage and tried to get them interested in partnering with me to make the drug.  I found two business partners with decades of experience in biodefense who read my website and immediately contacted me and agreed to go into business together on the project.  I worked 12 hours a day or more every day and finished the application and mailed it off to the NIH.  All the forms and documents fit into a box nearly two feet tall.  It was like mailing off one of your children in more ways than one.  In the mean time I knew I had to get a skill set working with bacteriophage in a lab to give me the expertise I needed.  I found just the place and with the recommendation of my old biology professor I was accepted to a school in Olympia, Washington.  The T4 lab at The Evergreen State College was one of the few places in the world where an undergrad like me could get my foot in the door and start working on making phage drugs.
The world of bacteriophage research is very rarefied air where only a few scientists in a dozen or more labs work on discovering new phage and making new drugs to control pathogenic bacteria.  I had a plan and the hope that when my grant application was evaluated I would be one of the 15% that were funded.  The grant application results would come when I had gotten the skill set of working with phage in the lab.  If I got the grant the next step would be to make a small quantity of the drug and have the animal tests done at the Battelle labs.  The scientist I was working with there was very responsive to my questions and very enthusiastic about the project.  He was an expert at measuring the amount of aerosol pathogen that was to be transferred to the experimental animals.  The experiment consisted of exposing 200 mice to an aerosol of bubonic plague in a sealed container that resembled an oversized microwave oven.  Half of the exposed mice would be given the phage drug at different stages to test the efficacy of the drug.  If it worked and saved the lives of the exposed population that were treated 24 hours after the deadly germs entered their lungs then I would receive two million dollars to make the phage drug in large quantities at a production facility in Maryland.  The experiment on the mice alone would cost $820,000 and was the make or break step.  It was a unique experiment that had never been done before but I had read all the literature and was confident that the phage would save the mice and if necessary human beings.  I don’t condone the superfluous testing of drugs on animals but this drug could save millions of lives in the event of a national emergency so the lives of 200 specially bred mice were not being wasted.  It was a very dangerous experiment that could only be done in a very few places in the world.  If the scientist I was working with accidently broke the seal on his glove during the experiment he could very well lose his life.  At least he would have plenty of the phage drug handy.  Whatever they were paying him he was earning every bit of it.  The lab in Olympia where I would be working was a small room full of incubators, centrifuges of all sizes, chemicals, measuring equipment, supplies, glass ware, an air hood, and a -80 degree centigrade walk in freezer.  There was a room next door for sterilizing and storing equipment and analyzing DNA and RNA sequences of phage.  There was another room next to that which was not used heavily because it had been contaminated with radioactive isotopes but some of us used it out of necessity.  Two scientists would direct about twelve students in their research projects in the small lab but there were rarely more than eight people in the lab.  The main focus of research by the two professors was E. coli bacteria and the phage that killed them.  We also worked with different kinds of staph and strep and other pathogens that were becoming resistant to antibiotics.  Every year about 70,000 people who visit a hospital incur an infection and lose their lives to bacterial infections that can no longer be controlled with antibiotics.  Excessive use of antibiotics in humans and the animals that make up our food supply make the resistance more prevalent and the deaths greater in number every year.  Bacteria pass plasmids (genes) to each other that confer resistance to antibiotics.  Our work was important because at some point most antibiotics will no longer control bacterial infections and humanity will suffer millions of deaths.  The E. coli strains we worked with were the “McDonalds strain” that had been responsible for several deaths but these bacteria had the pathogenic genes removed so that we could work with them without becoming ill and dying.  The methodology was to grow the E. coli or other bacteria in a flask in the warm water bath and then place the bacteriophage in the flask and do a time experiment to measure how much bacteria the phage killed over what period of time.  The phage in relation to the bacteria is about the size of a BB to a basketball.  The phage enters the liquid of the flask and cannot swim but randomly bumps into the walls of the bacteria.  The first phase is called attachment when the phage “sticks” to the outside of the bacteria.  The phage often looks like the lunar module as it goes through attachment and the proteins irreversibly adhere to the bacteria and inject their packet of DNA or RNA into the interior of the bacteria.  The phage hijacks the proteins and other machinery that the bacteria uses to live and begins to manufacture exact copies of itself in parts like a Buick automobile that might enter a factory dedicated to making semi trucks and suddenly it is converted to making all the separate parts that make up a Buick.  The following stage is called assembly when all the separate pieces of the phage reassemble into hundreds of complete virus (phage) particles while still inside the bacteria.  The final stage is lysis when the phage slice through the bacterial wall from the inside and release the hundreds of copies of themselves at the same time killing the bacteria.  The whole process might take about 40 minutes.  The hundreds of new copies of phage then enter the liquid medium and randomly bump into the bacterial walls and repeat the process again.  It is a delicate and complex dance that varies at every stage and might work or fail at any stage depending on the phage used and the conditions of the experiment.  At different time points the experimenter removes portions of the liquid medium and pours it onto a petri dish that is incubated over night and shows how well the phage is killing the bacteria.  Science is very precise and very hard because there are many things that can go wrong.  Some people in the lab had worked for two years or more trying to write a thesis but had to admit their darkest fears that all of that blood, sweat, and tears might in the end lead nowhere.  The stakes were enormous and the work was not easy.  The two scientists we were working for were very professional and dedicated people who gave us support and encouragement.  It was a heady atmosphere because we were potentially going to change the world but could just as easily fail.  The people around me were young, highly intelligent, and idealistic and I felt like that I was in a special place.  In the same way that the devout might enter the Vatican or the Dome of the Rock I entered the lab every morning and began my experiments.
I have never studied how to make organisms to be used to injure or kill people.  I have no specialized knowledge about how to make biological weapons or organisms that could be used against specific individuals or races or nations.  The entire focus of my research has been to make medicines that could save millions of lives in the event of a national emergency.  I am not now nor have I ever been a threat to national security, and in fact the entire thrust of my career has been to enhance the health and safety of humanity.  A careful study of my career in microbiology and interviews with my teachers and fellow students and researchers will confirm this fact beyond a shadow of a doubt.  Marshall Gregory Thomas

I’ve made offensive remarks in the past to be provocative, controversial and to shock people.  These statements do not reflect my personal views.  Technically speaking all ethnic or religious humor is racist and I often find it in poor taste but I am hesitant to subscribe to a strictly politically correct view of the world and not tell any such jokes in private even if they are in poor taste because I feel that a strict politically correct view of the world is oppressive.  I often refer to myself in unflattering terms such as hillbilly, retard, fag etc when I am alone and not in danger of hurting other people’s feelings.  I am not anti-Semitic and identify very closely with the Jewish people and their struggle for justice and equality.  They have been the targets of religious persecution and used as scapegoats by governments or religions to deflect popular anger away from themselves.  One is reminded of the old saying, “the nail that sticks out farthest is the one that gets hammered down”.  I have often felt that this phrase applies to myself as well.  I began to study the Holocaust as a teenager and read accounts of Nazi hunters who searched the world for war criminals and marveled at their courage.  I consider the Palestinian conflict a tragedy that must be brought to a swift and just conclusion for both sides.  I feel that there has not been an honest debate in the US about the conflict because anyone who disagrees with the Israeli government line is called an anti-Semite.  This is strange because this does not happen in Israel.  Golda Mier said the conflict had turned a race of scholars and healers into a race of warriors.  When I Google Talmud I find a torrent of anti-Semitic diatribes and disinformation such as the Protocols of Zion.  I find this very alarming and think that much of this is fallout from the war and another reason why the conflict must come to an end.  Most people argue for a two state solution but I think a one state solution is preferable for several reasons.  Two historically hostile states in such a small geographic area will probably continue to remain hostile.  The Palestinian state would not control it’s borders or air space and will not be a state in the truest sense of the word.  The Palestinians are divided politically and geographically and the future government will probably remain divided, corrupt, and unable to function effectively for the people.  A one state solution will allow Palestinians to enjoy the rights of Arab Israelis and immediately raise their standard of living and give them political expression.  Minority political parties exercise real political power in Israel.  The Palestinians could join the new nation of Israel/Palestine and triple their standard of living in 10-15 years with the help of the UN and the Arab League.  The Israelis could retain majority control of the government for 20 years and portfolios such as defense.  If the Palestinians are unhappy after 20 years they could vote to leave the agreement and form a state on the West Bank.  Peace between the Israelis and Palestinians is the basis for peace between the West and the Arab world.  Finally I wish to say that my Jewish friends have been a source of great joy to me over the years.  One friend I made when I was in my twenties was a geologist who had a Bull dog and twenty cats and the ability to say things I had never heard voiced and the courage and gift to look at the world with originality.  Another friend was a microbiologist who made his work his whole life and challenged me to do original scientific work of my own.  There is no single Jewish political outlook and philosophy.  I have noticed an intense drive to search for truth and to search for God down many different paths along with the courage to follow them wherever they lead.  This propensity to search for truth and God has been an inspiration and informed my own journey.  I do not think I could have made this journey without their example.

Apology

July 22, 2010
Apology:  It is very likely that the perpetrators of nonlethal weapons war crimes will try to escape justice by using a strategy called shoot the messenger.  If they can focus attention on flaws in a single human being then they avoid confronting the case based on the Four Facts.  If the strategy is successful it will result in the continued torture and murder of people being attacked with classified nonlethal weapons.  To avoid this misdirection I will share my personal mistakes and transgressions up front.  Please do not confuse my personal flaws with flaws in the case based on historical facts and evidence.  When I was a teen my parents divorced and I began to experiment with drugs and alcohol  in a self destructive manner.  I bought a fake ID at fifteen and began to drink at clubs with friends and before I was eighteen I had  tried basically everything once except heroin and homosexuality.  This period of self medication lasted until my early twenties when I quit using drugs and alcohol.  During times of depression, like after a break up with a girl friend or loss of my job or my home I returned to using alcohol and cannabis for discrete periods of time.  When the depression passed I would stop drinking and smoking.  In 1995 I was an ESL teacher and while traveling on spring break in Central America I became very ill and developed thyroid disease and autoimmune disease.  I had a loss of appetite that led me to go from 180lbs to 120lbs.  Severe muscle spasms made it impossible to turn my head, breath normally, or sleep for six months straight.  In desperation I used cannabis to treat the symptoms.  The muscles of my neck and back would let go and pop so loudly they could be heard from across the room.  When my health improved I stopped using cannabis.  Years ago I lost my job and my home and was temporarily living in an environment where people were using drugs like cocaine.  I used cocaine twice but have not used the drug since.  This episode was an aberration and was not something I have done since I was in my early twenties or something I have repeated since it occurred.  I’ve never become addicted to drugs or alcohol.  I want to apologize and say I’m sorry and pledge not to break the drug laws or abuse alcohol and to fulfill my responsibility to others.  During periods of extreme suffering and emotional breakdown due to a neurological illness I have made regretable statements and racial slurs.  I am not a racist but during breakdowns from illness and sleep deprivation I have gone on angry rants and said things that I regret terribly.  It may be inevitable that I am portrayed as a racist Nazi but nothing could be farther from the truth.  Please give greater weight to the life I have lived rather than statements I have made while in a state of extreme distress due to a terrible illness.  I taught ESL to minority children and routinely traveled to Mexico, Central America, and the Carribean by choice as a person at home with human beings of different races.  I have dated females from different ethnic backgrounds and lived and worked in environments where I was a minority.  I have lived in majority Hispanic and African American neighborhoods out of choice.  I could have easily lived surrounded by my own race but chose not to do so.   I pledge to follow the same laws as everyone else, behave in a correct manner, and dedicate myself to living up to my responsibilities.  Please do not allow personal issues from the past to be used to allow war criminals to avoid justice and continue to torture and murder innocent people who fit a common profile.  The case presented is a logical reasoned argument based upon historical facts, valid evidence, and reliable sources.  I am willing to be painfully honest and more forthcoming than anyone has ever been in the public eye so that the suffering of the innocents may end.
