TICKING BOMBS Pentagon ordered to reveal to Congress if its scientists used diseased TICKS as biological weapons – and if any escaped the lab

Not Fake, just Late

Anyone who suffers from Lyme disease has likely heard of Plum Island-which oddly enough was not mentioned in the article.

Thank your bungling government for Lyme disease.

US Military chiefs have been ordered to reveal whether they used diseased TICKS in sick biological warfare experiments.

A bill passed in the House of Representatives requires the Pentagon to investigate whether researches infected the insects in the 1970s – and if any were let loose.

It comes after a bombshell new book claims the Defence Department was behind the spread of Lyme Disease between 1950 and 1975.

Congressman Chris Smith – who added the amendment to a military spending bill – said: “We need answers and we need them now.”

The bill orders officials to “conduct a review of whether the Department of Defence experimented with ticks and other insects regarding use as a biological weapon between the years of 1950 and 1975.”

They must also reveal “whether any ticks or insects used in such experiments were released outside of any laboratory by accident or experiment design.”

Pat Smith, president of the Lyme Disease Association, added: “We need to find out: is there anything in this research that was supposedly done that can help us to find information that is germane to patient health and combating the spread of the disease.”

The Defence Authorisation Bill still needs to pass in the Senate before it can be signed by President Trump.
