Sandpoint, ID - Surgeon General David Satcher's letter in USA Today ("Immunization a must: Protects all," August 19. 1999), in which he complained that vaccine risks were overstated in an earlier cover story ("Now parents fear shots," Aug. 3, 1999), was harshly criticized as "genocidal propaganda" by a recognized expert in public health education, Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

Dr. Horowitz, director of a health science publishing group (Tetrahedron Press, 208-265-2575) had received an invitation to meet with Dr. Satcher to "discuss issues of mutual interest" regarding vaccine risks when the surgeon general was still directing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Satcher cancelled the meeting citing a "lack of credible scientific evidence."

"Dr. Satcher's comment that 'serious [vaccine] side effects are extremely rare,' follows in the great tradition of Nazi spin doctor Josef Goebbles," Dr. Horowitz said. "In recent months, our vaccine research network, including many reputable scientists, has helped reform military and public vaccine policies concerning anthrax, hepatitis B, and polio due to risks far greater than the surgeon general admits."

The oral polio and hepatitis B vaccines were particularly troubling to Dr. Horowitz and affiliated anti-vaccine activists due to government documents published in his bestselling book "Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola-Nature, Accident or Intentional?" (Tetrahedron Press, $29.95; 1-888-508-4787). The text, recently credited during the CDC's Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices by Dr. Robert Chen as among the most persuasive risk awareness works supporting the anti-vaccination movement, was reviewed by Dr. Satcher.

"I assume Dr. Satcher noted the contracts under which numerous immune system destroying viruses, similar to the AIDS virus (HIV), were secretly prepared during the late 1960s by biological weapons contractors and the military chimpanzee supplier Litton Bionetics. Dr. Satcher even received the contract under which Litton shipped contaminated primates to the Merck pharmaceutical company," Dr. Horowitz said.

Merck's chief vaccine maker, Dr Maurice Hilleman, likewise testified that he "didn't know we were importing AIDS virus at the time" the contaminated monkeys entered his primate containment and vaccine production facilities.

According to the evidence Dr. Horowitz provided Dr. Satcher, contaminated monkeys and chimpanzees were used by the CDC, FDA, and Merck vaccine makers to develop the hepatitis B vaccine injected into gay men in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa in 1974. "This was perfectly timed for the emergence of HIV, related to a chimpanzee virus, four years later, " Dr. Horowitz reported during a scientific session at the XI International Conference on AIDS.

Following Dr. Satcher's implied denial of CDC wrongdoing, Dr. Horowitz issued a formal complaint to his network, carried by national newswires. Dr. Satcher's inability to see the incriminating evidence at the time he was being considered for the surgeon general post was reminiscent of the story told in "The Emperor's New Clothes." "Here was a Black man who could watch his own people in the U.S. and Africa, and millions of others around the world, die without seeing anything," Dr. Horowitz lamented. "The surgeon general's uniform suited him perfectly."

According to Ingri Cassel, cofounder of the North Idaho chapter of Vaccination Liberation, partly responsible for her region's lowest vaccination rate in the nation, "Dr. Horowitz's inflammatory statements are appropriate under the circumstances." Ms. Cassel believes that sufficient scientific evidence exists linking vaccines to a plethora of autoimmune disease epidemics, cancers, and even female infertility. "The evidence warrants a more thorough investigation than recently done by Congress," she said.

Genocide is defined as the mass murder of people for political and/or economic reasons. During the late 1980s, experimental tetanus vaccines containing the sterilizing hormone HCG were given to millions of unsuspecting women in the Americas and in several Third World nations. "Today, 25 percent of Black women in urban America, and 35 percent of native American women, are sterile," Dr. Horowitz said. "What a convenient 'act of nature' for those who fund population reduction programs including the world's largest vaccine maker-Merck. If that's not the grossest conflict of interest in Earth's history, I don't know what is."

Records show the Merck pharmaceutical company received a major share of the Nazi "flight capital" at the close of World War II when its president, George W. Merck, was America's biological weapons industry director. These facts were revealed by Norman Covert, Army public relations director at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD, and veteran news correspondent Paul Manning in his book "Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile" (Lyle Stuart, Inc, 1981).

"It's likely no 'accident' or 'act of nature' that today, after HIV has devastated populations in Central Africa and gay America, that 73 percent of AIDS cases in the United States are Black and Hispanic. Could today's public health units and physicians offices be like the concentration camps of yesteryear?" Dr. Horowitz, the son of a holocaust survivor, questioned. "Are modern vaccines being used in place of the gas? Given the evidence, we may want to change Dr. Satcher's title to 'surgeon genocide.'"
