From Covid-19 to BioLabs; all roads lead back to the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) By The Exposé on April 22, 2022

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) funds biolabs around the world and contracts much of the work under the military program to private companies, which are not held accountable to Congress, and can operate more freely and move around the rule of law.

The recent scandal over the involvement of Hunter Biden in bioweapons research brought these companies to the forefront of public opinion. These companies not only have a poor track record, but are also directly involved in the development of bioweapons, posing a significant and growing threat to national and international security.

Metabiota bungled Ebola response

San Francisco-based Metabiota was tapped by the Sierra Leonean government and the World Health Organization to help monitor the spread of virus and support the response after Ebola was discovered circulating in Africa in March 2014. The company’s failure to track samples and have absolutely no control on what was being done made an already chaotic situation worse.

WHO experts have criticised the company. In Sierra Leone, Sylvia Blyden, who served as special executive assistant to the country’s president in the early days of the outbreak, said Metabiota’s response was a disaster.(more)

Black&Veatch was involved in bioweapons research in Ukraine

A letter from the Kherson department of the Ukrainian Security Service said that DTRA and Black&Veatch intend to establish control over the functioning of microbiological laboratories in Ukraine conducting research on bioweapons so that they can be used to create or modernize new types of biological weapons.

The company was involved in human experimentation and conducts research on bioweapons.

Black&Veatch has been working in the interests of the Pentagon since 2008 as an inherent part of projects studying potentially dangerous bioagents. Among these was the UP-1 project to study rickettsia and tick-borne encephalitis virus in arthropods in northwestern Ukraine.

In addition, Black&Veatch is an executor of the UP-8 project aimed at studying the causative agents of the Congo-Crimean fever, leptospirosis and hantaviruses. According to the project’s description, blood samples will be collected from 4400 healthy soldiers in Lviv, Kharkov, Odessa and Kyiv. The Project has resulted in at least 20 deaths of soldiers.

Black&Veatch is also an executor of the U.S.-Armenia Cooperative Biological Engagement Program. It installed infectious disease diagnostic equipment in three Ministry of Health Laboratories. Just a few weeks later, the Armenian government began receiving reports of patients with symptoms resembling anthrax from eastern Armenia.

CH2M Hill was involved in bioweapons research

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency funded CH2M Hill to stockpile dangerous biological agents, such as anthrax and schistosoma haematobiom at the Lugar Research Center and employed former Georgian bio warfare scientists to work on biological weapons development projects.

Seventy-three volunteers died while testing new deadly toxins. In 2017 CH2M Hill conducted the KZ-33 project with the Research Institute for Biosafety Issues of Kazakhstan and Duke-NUS Medical School funded by The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, which aimed to study bat coronaviruses.

Battelle Memorial Institute was embroiled in a scandal involving illegal use of government equipment, lab safety violations and retaliation.

Since 1996, Battelle Memorial Institute has been punished several times for illegal acts. The company’s reputation is in tatters. In 1996 Battelle Memorial Institute was accused of using improper accounting procedures for use of government equipment. In 2008 Battelle Memorial Institute was accused for violating the Department’s worker safety and health regulations at Idaho National Laboratory….

Battelle Memorial Institute has already worked on the Bio-weapons Program under 11 previous contracts with the US Army(1952-1966).

Project Clear Vision 1997 and 2000, a joint investigation by the CIA and the Battelle Memorial Institute, under a contract awarded by the Agency, reconstructed and tested a Soviet-era anthrax bombl in order to test its dissemination characteristics.

Since 2006 Battelle has operated a Top Secret Bio Laboratory NBACC at Fort Detrick, Maryland under a US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contract. Battelle funds NBACC to store and research deadly pathogens such as Ebola, nerve agent and anthrax and conducted secret human experiments.

Among the secret experiments, performed by Battelle at NBACC are: Assessment of powder dissemination technology; Assessment of hazard posed by aerosolised toxins and Assessment of virulence of B.Pseudomallei (Meliodosis) as a function of aerosol particle in non-human primates.

Melioidosis is biological weapon agent. There is strong evidence of U.S. research into bioweapons through contractors, which is a serious breach of the BWC.2)
