"To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he's
doing is good . . .
Ideology - that is what gives devildoing its long-sought
justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steatfastness
and determination. That is the social theory Which helps to make
his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes, so
that he won't hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise
THIS BOOK is painfully nonfiction - the story is true, the
characters, scientific and political, are real. Secondary references
have been checked and authenticated.
Since the importance of this information was clear, I labored to
write for both critical health scientists and intelligent lay readers
without losing either. Technical words are explained in lay terms
for all to better understand.
Though many people - black, white, gay, straight, Jew and
gentile - may wish to deny the implications of this work, the truth
is the truth. As British statesman Edmund Burke said in the wake
of the American revolution, "People never give up their liberties
but under some delusion." Perhaps now, as AIDS consumes the
lives, liberties, and pursuits of an estimated 30 million HIV-
positive people worldwide, the time has come to vanquish our
delusions about it and its origin.
Despite its social and scientific importance, the origin of HIV has
been clouded in mystery. Based on the mass of circumstantial
and scientific evidence presented herein, the theory that
"emerging viruses" like HIV and Ebola spontaneously evolved
and naturally jumped species from monkey to man must be
There is an old saying in medicine, that diagnosis is required
before treatment. The facts presented here, easily verified, may
help diagnose the man-made origin of the world's most feared
and deadly viruses. It is hoped this work will, therefore, help
redirect AIDS science in search of a cure, free AIDS victims
from the guilt and stigma attached to the disease, as well as
prevent such "emerging viruses" from reemerging.
I offer this investigation into the orgin of AIDS and Ebola for
critical review in the hope that it may also contribute to greater
honesty in science, to political, military, and intelligence
community reforms that are truly peace loving, and to self and
social reflection as a preventative against inhumanity.
All at once, it seems, new viruses and virus-related diseases have
threatened the health of humans and many animal species. How
did this situation arise? Could it be that scientific studies and the
emergence of new pathogens are not totally unrelated events? In
writing this text, Dr. Horowitz has bravely questioned the extent
to which scientific research and lax government oversight may
have contributed to the present and coming plagues.
Open debate on this issue has been soundly discouraged.
Opponents to open dialogue on the apparent relationship between
early viral research and the latest germ discoveries argue that
little good, and considerable harm, would come from a full
disclosure of the facts. Exposing the truth, many believed, would
likely: I) tarnish the reputations of certain scientists, 2) make it
more difficult to maintain science funding, 3) promote
antigovernment sentiment, and 4) likely leave many issues
unresolved. Others argued that it was simply too late to undo past
mistakes. The fact that a better understanding of the new viruses'
origins could lead to new treatment approaches, and, more
importantly, to ways of preventing future outbreaks, was
In considering the recent genesis of HIV and the Ebola viruses,
Dr. Horowitz's book has explored three areas of great general and
scientific interest: 1) the history of intensive research into the
viral causes of cancer wherein readers can become familiar with
the many, now questionable, virus transmission experiments, 2)
the CIA and Department of Defense efforts to develop and
defend against biological weapons of germ warfare. Here Dr.
Horowitz should be especially congratulated for presenting well-
researched little known facts that, though highly disturbing, are
an important piece of history that may also bear heavily on the
emergence of new viruses, and 3) vaccine production. Clearly, as
anyone who reads this book will conclude, there is a great need
for more open dialogue concerning the past and present risks
