1976 Scamdemic to COVID-19 Plandemic - Part II
In 1975, if Cheney hadn't covered up Korean War anthrax attacks, could he have gotten away with the anthrax attacks of 2001?

In the summer of 1975, Cheney, as President Ford’s White House staffer, participated in the cover-up of the 1953 murder of CIA bioweapons scientist Frank Olson, by framing it as an MK-Ultra mishap.
Olson’s family had started raising questions about his suspicious death. He had supposedly thrown himself from a New York City hotel window in the presence of a CIA colleague. To prevent the truth from getting out, Dick Cheney helped craft the “CIA Suicide” limited hangout that suggested Olson killed himself after going crazy during a bad LSD trip at a CIA retreat at Deep Creek Lake.
The titillating tale of CIA LSD distracted the public from the bigger story which was the likelihood that Frank Olson was murdered because he was going to blow the whistle on the CIA’s use of anthrax against the enemy during the Korean war.
R. Gabriel Joseph, Ph.D. wrote in his 2016 article, “Is DARPA Secretly Planning to Expose Human Populations To Genetically Modified Organisms and Pathogens? America's History of Biologically Terrorizing American Citizens”:
In the early 1940s, the U.S. and Britain began working on developing "anthrax bombs" which they intended to drop on German cities. According to Stanford University historian Prof. Barton J Bernstein: "British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was advised that 1,000 projectiles, each of 500 pounds and containing 106 fourpound anthrax bombs, could destroy life in a 25 mile area. Potential targets included Berlin, Hanberg, Frankfurt, Aachen and Wilhelmshafen."
Because the Germans surrendered before any of these anthrax bombs could be tested on German civilians, these biological bombs were instead dropped on the villagers of Gruinard, an island off the northwest coast of Scotland. In consequence, not only did most of the sheep and the villagers become ill and died, but the island became uninhabitable for more than 45 years.
Frank Olson's specialty was aerosolized anthrax.
According to Jeremy Kuzmarov’s “There’s Something Rotten in Denmark:” Frank Olson and the Macabre Fate of a CIA Whistleblower in the Early Cold War, Frank Olson was the chief of the plans and operations division of the CIA’s Special Operations Division. In that capacity, he served as deputy to Sidney Gottlieb, the infamous CIA chemist known for developing drugs useful for mind-control and assassination as part of a program that was approved by CIA Director Allen Dulles as MK-Ultra in 1953. Olson’s Special Operations Division produced biological weapons, including poisons with the “ability to induce cancer through covert means.”
Through Operation Paperclip, Olson met and studied the work of (if he didn’t work side-by-side with) the Axis Powers’ anthrax experts, including Walter Schreiber and Shiro Ishii, and applied what he learned in the U.S. bioweapons program where he conducted secret, open-air germ warfare tests.
There were 239 such germ warfare assaults on unwitting Americans between 1949 and 1969, many involving a bacteria that Olson’s fellow Fort Detrick scientist Norman Cournoyer described as “very similar to anthrax.”
During the period of secret, open-air germ warfare tests, the U.S. Army, along with the Centers for Disease Control, also tested anthrax vaccines on unwitting human subjects. Four years after Olson’s death, in 1957, there was an outbreak of inhalation anthrax at the Arms Textile Mill in Manchester, New Hampshire that sickened nine workers, killing four. New Hampshire Public Radio reported in 2017:
“But it was pure coincidence that they happened to have the outbreak here when they were testing the vaccine.”
When scientists realized what was happening, they halted their trial and gave the vaccine to every worker at Arms Mill.
No one else got sick. In fact, that experimental vaccine became the basis for the one given today to soldiers.
What made Olson to consider leaving his job, telling his wife Alice, that he had made “a terrible mistake”? Before her death in 1994, Alice Olson told her grown children that “Korea really bothered your father.”
Michael Ignatieff writes in “Who Killed Frank Olson?”:
Though I still resist the facts, the facts, as [Eric] Olson’s research has established, are that Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, and other unnamed persons at the highest levels of the American government ordered the death of Eric’s father [Frank Olson] because they feared he knew too much about US biological warfare during the Korean War and about the torture and execution of Soviet agents and ex-Nazi “expendables” in black sites in Europe during the early 1950s. Having killed him, the CIA confected the story that Olson's death was a suicide brought on by stress, and later attributed his jump from the window to the effects of a cocktail laced with LSD. It now appears that the LSD was administered, at a CIA retreat in Maryland, to discover exactly what Olson knew. When this experiment revealed that he was indeed "unreliable," he was taken to New York and disposed of.
In his 2016 article mentioned above, R. Gabriel Joseph, Ph.D. summarized the significance of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld’s efforts to suppress this story:
In 1974, when [Biological Weapons Convention] treaty violations and unauthorized biological attacks first threatened to come to light, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, both top officials in the Ford administration acted in concert to explain away these crimes. According to the children of [Frank Olson], Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, were directly involved in the cover up. "For 22 years there was a coverup. And then, under the guise of revealing everything, there was a new coverup."
As revealed in a July 11, 1975, memo from Dick Cheney to his boss, Donald Rumsfeld, Cheney defended the cover up on the grounds of "national-security."
In 2001, Cheney became vice-president of the USA, and Rumsfeld the secretary of Defense. Within 11 months the U.S. was terrorized by a series of anthrax attacks. The Bush administration immediately engaged in a coverup.
