Farmwars.info discusses another unmentionable in political discourse - the nature and extent of biological “interventions” by the US government:
“Can the military simply experiment on the American public at will? It would seem so.
PUBLIC LAW 105—85—NOV. 18, 1997: USE OF HUMAN SUBJECTS FOR TESTING OF CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL AGENTS
SEC. 1078. RESTRICTIONS ON THE USE OF HUMAN SUBJECTS FOR TESTING OF CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL AGENTS.
(a) PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES.—The Secretary of Defense may not conduct (directly or by contract)
(1) any test or experiment involving the use of a chemical agent or biological agent on a civilian population; or
(2) any other testing of a chemical agent or biological agent on human subjects.
(b) EXCEPTIONS.—Subject to subsections (c), (d), and (e), the prohibition in subsection (a) does not apply to a test or experiment carried out for any of the following purposes:
(1) Any peaceful purpose that is related to a medical, therapeutic, pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial, or research activity.
(2) Any purpose that is directly related to protection against toxic chemicals or biological weapons and agents.
(2) Any law enforcement purpose, including any purpose related to riot control.
Notice that the exceptions negate the prohibitions. If an act is for a purpose labeled “peaceful,” such as for supposed “defense” experimentation, medical (vaccines), therapeutic, pharmaceutical (drugs), agricultural (GMOs), industrial, or research activity (this encompasses just about everything else) or law enforcement purposes, the use of biological agents is allowed on the public most likely without their permission or consent.

Monsanto and Atlas Venture
And now Monsanto has recently signed a deal with Atlas Venture for funding of, well, who knows? Monsanto does. And Monsanto isn’t telling. But we do know that it will most likely be some sort of “disruptive innovation” because that is Atlas Venture’s specialty. “Atlas Venture is an early stage investment firm dedicated to financing disruptive innovation in Life Sciences and Technology.”
Definition of disruptive innovation/technology:
A new technology that has a serious impact on the status quo and changes the way people have been dealing with something, perhaps for decades. Music CDs all but wiped out the phonograph industry within a few years, and digital cameras are destined to eliminate the film industry. The most disruptive technologies in history have been the telephone, the computer (and all of its offshoots) and the Internet.
BP, Synthetic Genomics, and Atlas Venture
Just where does BP and the Gulf fit into this picture? Well, it just so happens that BP has a long term research and development deal with Synthetic Genomics, who’s founder is Craig Venter, who created Synthia – the flesh eating bacteria in the Gulf.
For more information about the Gulf Blue Plague and Synthia, the synthetic organism created by Craig Venter, see “The BP/Synthetic Genomics Project: The Gulf Blue Plague” by Michael Edward.
Craig Venter of Synthetic Genomics co-founded Celera Genomics with Atlas Venture team member Peter Barrett. These men have a mutual history of partnership in sequencing the human genome.
Peter Barrett (co-founder of Celera Genomics with J. Craig Venter of Synthetic Genome) is a Partner in the Life Sciences group and joined Atlas Venture in 2002. He spent 20 years in operating roles before becoming passionate about genomics and co-founding the first company to sequence the human genome, Celera Genomics.
Celera was founded in 1998 with the mission to sequence the human genome and provide clients with early access to the resulting data. Using state-of-the art sequencing technology supplied by Applied Biosystems and sophisticated internally-developed informatics, Celera pioneered the application of “shotgun” sequencing. While this “shotgun” approach was widely criticized at the time, it has subsequently become a standard method for sequencing complex organisms that is now broadly accepted and routinely used by many of the same scientists who originally scorned the approach. Scores of organisms have now been sequenced using the Celera “shotgun” method.
Accidental Mayhem or Planned Genocide?
Is the ongoing BP incident an experiment gone wrong, or a planned genocidal maneuver? We have yet to find out. We do know that Peter Barrett, who was involved in sequencing the human genome with Craig Venter, the man who created Synthia, is a member of Atlas Venture, the company now funding Monsanto. And we know that past collaboration between Monsanto and the military industrial complex brought us Agent Orange live and in color. Should we be concerned?
It seems that certain organizations with a rather homicidal history of mayhem are working together. They say it’s for our good. But let me ask you this: Will these organizations, bonded together like flies on flypaper, suddenly change their course and use what they devise for good? Any technological breakthrough comes with the responsibility of determining just how it will be used. It is a two-edged sword. It can be used for good or bad, and it is up to the owners of that technology to make the right decisions. Have these organizations made the right decisions in the past? Are they making them now? And considering their past actions, can we really expect any good to come of this collaboration? If your answer is yes, then you are not one of the children who grew up playing on the toxic soil so graciously given to the residents of Anniston Alabama by Monsanto, or one of the Veterans who was poisoned by Agent Orange at Fort Detrick, or one of the people living in the Gulf who can’t breath and is having his/her flesh eaten by a synthetic organism unleashed for who knows what reason by BP and Synthetic Genomics.
Considering the long term and recent history of these agencies and their proclivity for destruction with no regard for human consequences, one has to wonder… what’s next? Just what is Fort Detrick’s conglomeration of ne’er do wells plotting this time? You can be sure that Monsanto and the rest of the gang aren’t telling. Keeping secrets is what they do best, besides wholesale destruction and mayhem, that is. I can hear the silent screams of nature being ripped apart by madmen, and all I can do is scream back – STOP IT!!! STOP IT NOW!!!
