The Foundation for Economic Trends forces the Department of Defense to divulge its
operation of 127 chemical and biological warfare research sites in the US. This
despite a treaty at the time banning research and development of biological agents.

CNN and Time magazine are forced to retract their reports under pressure from the
US military, the CIA and figures such as Kissinger, Helms and Colin Powell. The two

Some of the anthrax spores used in the recent anthrax attacks in the US are found to be
biologically identical to bacteria secretly manufactured at a US germ warfare facility
at the Dugway Proving Ground (about 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah)
during the last decade. The lab has a long history of secret research (including [[ dengue | dengue fever ]] and a
controversy in the 60s when thousands of sheep and other animals died downwind of the
facility, showing symptoms of having been exposed to nerve gas), and the revelation that
it has been secretly producing Anthrax only adds to concerns.

Pentagon documents reveal that the US held open-air biological and chemical weapons tests in
at least three states - Alaska, Hawaii and Utah - during the 1960s 'to try to develop defenses
against such weapons', using the nerve agents sarin, soman, tabun and VX . According to the
Defense Dept, an unknown number of civilians were exposed at the time to 'simulants', or what
were then thought to be harmless agents meant to stand in for deadlier ones, however some of
which were later discovered to be dangerous.

Respected scientists on both sides of the Atlantic warn that the US is developing a new
generation of weapons that undermine and possibly violate international treaties on biological

Iraq releases weapons declaration. Before releasing to the public, the US Government
confiscates all 12,000 pages, saying they contained "sensitive information" which needed
"a little editing". Sensitive indeed. The original Iraqi documents listed 150 American,
British and other foreign companies that supplied Iraq with its nuclear, chemical and
missile technology, many of them in illegal transactions. In 2000 Peter Hain, then a
Foreign Office Minister, blocked a parliamentary request to publish the full list of
lawbreaking British companies. He has never explained why.
