We attempted to stop them by banning the user accounts, which was effective for a minute, and then a renewed attacks came with new user names. Its important to note that creating a user name could take several minutes, and would require new email accounts. The speed in which this occurred seems to suggest either a coordinated attack, or a fairly sophisticated hacking into our network.
What made this even more suspicious was, at the time I was discussing Sen Bernie Sanders Zionist leanings, and playing a clip from 2014 where he nearly has people arrested for questioning him over his devotion for Israel, and his war propaganda regarding the Palestinians. “Isis” has declared war on Palestine (which doesn’t make sense unless we factor in their funding and support, which is well known to us. eg: NATO / Israel)
Other than that, It’s hard for me to imagine why anyone cares to bother us. We do have high profile guests on air, and offer Original Content daily… But I rarely if EVER even promote this show anymore. This experience, and others like it (listed below) are the reason why.
So WHO was REALLY behind this “cyber-vandalism” gang-stalking, or Cyber-Terror, and what do we plan to do about it?
Whomever was responsible either has a poor command of the English language, or would want us to thing so. I have no doubt that some have truly fallen for the trap that is “ISIS” and its related organizations, much in the same way that American White Supremacists fall for the FBI infiltrated, or run KKK. However, the fact that The Jack Blood Show was a target, and the above stated timing of the target seems to suggest a false flag of sorts. eg: Israeli Intelligence, one of their sub groups of internet volunteers or perhaps CentCom / American Counter Intelligence (Coinelro) itself. (We are still investigating this – But Qui Bono / who benefits is always a great place to start.
One might ask if they hacked themselves to gain support for a phony war against ISIS, and or tough internet laws that will surely come after an “Internet Pearl harbor”. Years back we learned that the I – Patriot Act was already written for just such an occasion, and all of the pieces are seemingly in place.
It should be noted that we have had this kind of trouble many times before! We once caught HALLIBURTON in Houston, (and simultaneously China) at the other end of a viscous, and again well times attack on our show by tracking the IP address of the perpetrator! So please excuse us if we are skeptical of said origins of “enemy cyber attacks”.
We have been threatened by international law firms (once on the behest of The Arab Press House), had a fake grenade thrown through our window, been gang stalked and attacked many many times (once while we were live on air protecting Tax Protesters Ed and Elaine Brown from an attack by the US Marshals on their land in NH…) We have had our house set on fire, been targeted in several public campaigns of slander (some even buying “sponsored links” on Google) and had groups go after and threaten our sponsors, etc etc etc….
I have very seriously thought about walking away from all of this aggravation. The last several years have been very hard on myself and my family. We have been virtually blackballed in the Alternative media, Truth and Freedom movements (for telling the truth and wanting to be FREE), and any appeal of sticking my neck out for everyone has left me long ago.
However… after 19 years of this, I am not sure I know how to do anything else. There is a good chance that at my age, with a giant hole in my resume’ titled “Culture Jammer” or professional “Conspiracy Theorist” etc…. I am unemployable, and unwanted in main stream America.
I cannot help but think of Malcolm X. Having to turn on and expose the Wolves in Sheep’s attire, and thus enlightened to the true cause of Unity, Justice, Equality, and Freedom… Went to his death willingly, as he was called to be such a Martyr, and because there was no other choice to be made. I am certainly no Malcolm X, but that doesn’t stop me from relatively feeling my destiny is clearly not a peaceful or good one.
We will continue our efforts to trace and track down these groups and expose them for who they really are! NOT “Freedom Fighters” working to regain their own nations, and resources… But trash and trolls whom offer allegiance to take down the real Freedom Fighters who oppose ‘GlobalCorp’ and the One World Govt.
After near 25 years on the road sharing my Passion for the truth, my knowledge, my art and my soul with the people of the West, SW, NE, the Deep south, and lately the dirty south (Atlanta GA) … I am trying to relocate my family and my business back where I was born and raised…. Seattle Washington.
I have missed my friends, the people, the water, the weather, the mountains, and after just losing my mother… my family. We have great connections there to hit the ground running!
We have met some amazing, and truly INSPIRING people along the way! It has cultivated me into the person writing you today! Atlanta, while being great in so many ways, has not been too kind to us. There is nothing left for me to do here. In fact, I am now living on borrowed time, and my work is suffering for it.
I want to share with you my plans in the hopes that you will bless my decision, and support us by donating whatever you can to make this move possible. I’m afraid that without that support, my work will die here, burned to the ground just as this city was almost 150 years ago. Sorry for the dramatic tone.
So here is what we have planned, and we would like to get started right away!
1) I have formed a partnership with Greg Knight, a seasoned investigative reporter, and multi media expert. Greg has been contributing to THE JACK BLOOD SHOW for the last 3 years. His work is perhaps some of the best in the Alternative (to the “alternative”) media. Greg will join the cast we currently have in place, to bring YOU some of the most sound, and solid reporting anywhere.
Greg and I have formed The Information Factory. (IN Fact, FOR Fact….) We will be doing a number of things that I personally haven’t had the resources to do in past years. Greg is adding his knowledge, expertise, and video / editing equipment to our cause. We will be creating a series of short documentaries which will give everyone of you undeniable evidence of corruption and conspiracy. We will be adding an unbiased, neutral “Meme Factory” that could be an unparalleled, CULTURE JAMMER!
Greg and I will be offering LIVE Streaming services to everyone / events in the NW. This company will be self supporting.
2) We will be securing “factory” space in Seattle to create a learning center for all to use a resource. It is one of my personal goals to invent a prototype of a 21st century library for the people. Here we can house hard copies of important documents ( think US Library of Congress, but for REAL history! ) AND… if possible we would like to set up a TRUTH Hall of Fame! to remember all the great men and woman who have contributed to the cause of truth and freedom… whom should never be forgotten!)
3) “CONVERSATION PEACE” – This will be a wing of our venture that will reclaim materials and FOOD from the every growing dumpster of our wasteful society, AKA: “Dumpster Nation”. These materials will be reused, and recreated to gallery form. From furniture, to electronics….. or everyday items…. We will attempt to re-frame the “Green Cause” to one of action and TRUTH. Each item we save will tell a story.
We will commission local craftspeople and artists to help with this project, thus giving underground employment to the people that sometimes need it most. We have other proprietary info on this we cannot yet share with the public, but it is very exciting. If successful, this can serve as a model for every community around the world.
4) PROJECT 1000 – This is a direct action activism group that I have had in design for many years, learning from my own, and other’s mistakes via working in the streets, and halls of power to “legalize Freedom”. Everyone reading this can join up. It requires little time from individuals, but is a true force multiplier in its effect. I will write a special notice for this in the very near future.
5) NOBODY FOR POTUS 2016. I have already joined forces with my good friend and brother Larry Pinkney (aka The Pink Panther) to launch a campaign for President of the united States. More info HERE:
6) RADIO FREE BLOOD – If you lost track of us, you may not know that – thanks to your past support – I started my own Radio Channel. We will be growing and expanding this going forward! More info on RFB here: THE WORLD’S FIRST OFFICIAL “POP UP” RADIO STATION
*I also have a band that I have been with out of Seattle for 27 years, We are playing this NOV… and I will be doing some of my first Stand Up Comedy in Seattle, which is Impossible here in Atlanta (in the vein of Hicks, and Carlin)
I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A LOT TO TAKE IN, AND I WILL BE OPEN TO QUESTIONS FROM ANYONE WANTING TO KNOW MORE.
If you can help make all of this possible by supporting our move and contribute to our start up capital; we will pay you back in spades, by doing the work we were meant to do in an effort to educate and inform the public…. And create consensus to take back our freedoms!!!
WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW! HELP US REACH OUR TOP GOAL OF $25,000.00
To donate Directly to this cause – SEATTLE OR DIE – EMAIL me directly with the e-pay of your choice to: email@example.com – We hope to avoid paying fees on your donations to a kick starter corp. If you cannot or do not want to use an epay program, please write me and we will send snail mail address for checks payable to DEADLINE PRODUCTIONS.
I want to sincerely thank ALL of you whom helped us get this far. We are near the proverbial goal line now, PLEASE help us get in for a score. All we have to do is WIN!
uSA – July 27th 2015 : Coalition Presidential run announced by Black Panther and Radio Gun

2) Propose and support a DEBT FREE Money system in america. NO Interest on creating US Currency or credit for Naturalized Americans. (1 and 2 will result in higher min wage, and a lower cost of living) U.S. Treasury bonds will still be honored and sold at agreed interest rates for foreign investors.
3) Convert Insurance policies (ObamaCare) to Free Clinics, hospitals, internet health care for all in America.(while opening up competition in free market health care. – IE: affordable healthcare)
4) Free Leonard Peltier etc…. and All Illegitimate political prisoners, both in the US and it’s territories.

What’s the connection between the G7 summit in Germany, President Putin’s visit to Italy, the Bilderberg club meeting in Austria, and the TTIP – the US-EU free trade deal – negotiations in Washington?
We start at the G7 in the Bavarian Alps – rather G1 with an added bunch of “junior partners” – as US President Barack Obama gloated about his neo-con induced feat; regiment the EU to soon extend sanctions on Russia even as the austerity-ravaged EU is arguably hurting even more than Russia.
Predictably, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande caved in – even after being forced by realpolitik to talk to Russia and jointly carve the Minsk-2 agreement.
The hypocrisy-meter in the Bavarian Alps had already exploded with a bang right at the pre-dinner speech by EU Council President Donald Tusk, former Prime Minister of Poland and certified Russophobe/warmonger: “All of us would have preferred to have Russia round the G7 table. But our group is not only a group (that shares) political or economic interests, but first of all this is a community of values. And that is why Russia is not among us.”
So this was all about civilized “values” against “Russian aggression.”
The “civilized” G1 + junior partners could not possibly argue whether they would collectively risk a nuclear war on European soil over a Kiev-installed ‘Banderastan’, sorry, “Russian aggression.”
Instead, the real fun was happening behind the scenes. Washington factions were blaming Germany for making the West lose Russia to China, while adult minds in the EU – away from the Bavarian Alps – blamed Washington.
Even juicier is a contrarian view circulating among powerful Masters of the Universe in the US corporate world, not politics. They fear that in the next two to three years France will eventually re-ally with Russia (plenty of historical precedents). And they – once again – identify Germany as the key problem, as in Berlin forcing Washington to get involved in a Prussian ‘Mitteleuropa’ Americans fought two wars to prevent.
As for the Russians – from President Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov downwards – a consensus has emerged; it’s pointless to discuss anything substantial considering the pitiful intellectual pedigree – or downright neo-con stupidity – of the self-described “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Obama administration policy makers and advisers. As for the “junior partners” – mostly EU minions – they are irrelevant, mere Washington vassals.
It would be wishful thinking to expect the civilized “values” gang to propose alternatives for the overwhelming majority of citizens of G7 nations getting anything other than Mac-jobs, or barely surviving as hostages of finance-junkie turbo-capitalism which only benefits the one percent.Rather easier to designate the proverbial scapegoat – Russia – and proceed with NATO-infused fear/warmongering rhetoric.
Iron Lady Merkel also found time to pontificate on climate change – instilling all and sundry to invest in a “low-carbon global economy.” Few noticed that the alleged deadline for full “decarbonization” was set for the end of the 21st century, when this planet will be in deep, deep trouble.
G7 summit at the Elmau castle in Kruen near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany (Reuters / Christian Hartmann)
Obama’s neocon-induced newspeak continues to rule that Russia dreams of recreating the Soviet empire. Now compare it to what President Putin is telling Europe.
Last week, Putin found time to give an interview to the Milan-based Corriere della Sera at 2 am; the interview was published as the Bavarian Alps show went on, and ahead of Putin’s June 10 visit to Italy. Russia’s geopolitical interests and US- Russia relations are depicted in excruciating detail.
So Putin was a persona non grata at the G1 plus junior partners? Well, in Italy he visited the Milan Expo; met Prime Minister Renzi and Pope Francis; reminded everyone about the “privileged economic and political ties” between Italy and Russia; and stressed the 400 Italian companies active in Russia and the million Russian tourists who visit Italy every year.
Crucially, he also evoked that consensus; Russia had represented an alternative view as a member of the G8, but now “other powers” felt they no longer needed it. The bottom line: it’s impossible to have an adult conversation with Obama and friends.
And right on cue, from Berlin –where he was displaying his sterling foreign policy credentials, Jeb Bush, brother of destroyer of Iraq Dubya Bush, fully scripted by his neocon advisers, declared Putin a bully and rallied Europe to fight, what else, “Russian aggression.”
The rhetorical haze over what was really discussed in the Bavarian Alps only began to dissipate at the first chords of the real sound of music; the Bilderberg Group meeting starting this Thursday at the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol in Austria, only three days after the G1 plus junior partners.
Possible conspiracies aside, Bilderberg may be defined as an ultra-select bunch of elite lobbyists – politicians, US corporate honchos, EU officials, captains of industry, heads of intelligence agencies, European royals – organized annually in a sort of informal think tank/policy-forming format, to advance globalization and all crucial matters related to the overall Atlanticist agenda. Call it the prime Atlanticist Masters of the Universe talkfest.
To make things clear – not that they are big fans of transparency – the composition of the steering committee is here. And this is what they will be discussing in Austria.
Naturally they will be talking about “Russian aggression” (as in who cares about failed Ukraine; what we need is to prevent Russia from doing business with Europe).
Naturally they will be talking about Syria (as in the partition of the country, with the Caliphate already a fact of post-Sykes-Picot life).
Naturally they will be talking about Iran (as in let’s do business, buy their energy and bribe them into joining our club).
But the real deal is really the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) – the alleged “free trade” deal between the US and the EU. Virtually all major business/finance lobbyists for the TTIP will be under the same Austrian roof.
And not by accident Bilderberg starts one day before “fast track” presidential authority is to be debated at the US Congress.
Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) meets Pope Francis during a private meeting at Vatican City, June 10, 2015 (Reuters / Gregorio Borgia)
WikiLeaks and a ton of BRICS
Enter WikiLeaks, with what in a fairer world would be a crucial spanner in the works.
The fast track authority would extend US presidential powers for no less than six years; that includes the next White House tenant, which might well be ‘The Hillarator’ or Jeb “Putin is a bully” Bush.
This presidential authority to negotiate dodgy deals includes not only the TTIP but also the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).
WikiLeaks, just in time, published the Healthcare Annex to the secret draft “Transparency” chapter of the TPP, along with each country’s negotiating position. No wonder this draft is secret. And there’s nothing “transparent” about it; it’s an undisguised hold-up of national healthcare authorities by Big Pharma.
The bottom line is that these three mega-deals – TTP, TTIP and TiSA – are the ultimate template of what could be politely described as global corporate governance, a Bilderberg wet dream. The losers: nation-states, and the very concept of Western democracy. The winners: mega-corporations.
Julian Assange, in a statement, succinctly nailed it “It is a mistake to think of the TPP as a single treaty. In reality there are three conjoined mega-agreements, the TiSA, the TPP and the TTIP, all of which strategically assemble into a grand unified treaty, partitioning the world into the West versus the rest. This ‘Great Treaty’ is described by the Pentagon as the economic core to the US military’s ‘Asia Pivot.’ The architects are aiming no lower than the arc of history. The Great Treaty is taking shape in complete secrecy, because along with its undebated geostrategic ambitions it locks into place an aggressive new form of transnational corporatism for which there is little public support.”
So this is the real Atlanticist agenda – the final touches being applied in the arc spanning the G1 + added junior partners to Bilderberg (expect a lot of crucial phone calls from Austria to Washington this Friday). NATO on trade. Pivoting to Asia excluding Russia and China. The West vs. the rest.
Now for the counterpunch. As the show in the Bavarian Alps unrolled, the first BRICS Parliamentarian Forum was taking place in Moscow – ahead of the BRICS summit in Ufa next month.
Neocons – with Obama in tow – knock themselves out dreaming that Russia has become “isolated” from the rest of the world because of their sanctions. Since then Moscow has signed major economic/strategic contracts with at least twenty nations. Next month, Russia will host the BRICS summit – 45 percent of the world’s population, a GDP equivalent to the EU, and soon bigger than the current G7 – as well as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, when India and Pakistan, currently observers, will be accepted as full members.
G1 plus junior partners? Bilderberg? Get a job; you’re not the only show in town, any town.
Michael Slager, who was fired from the North Charleston police department after the
The South Carolina police officer who was filmed shooting a man in the back as he ran away earlier this year, prompting renewed outcry over the use of lethal force by law enforcement, was formally charged with murder on Monday.
Michael Slager was indicted by a grand jury in Charleston County for the murder of Walter Scott on 4 April, Scarlett Wilson, the solicitor for the ninth judicial circuit, announced at a press conference.
“We will move forward now in preparing our case,” said Wilson. “Really the prosecution work has just begun.”
The brief indictment alleged that Slager killed Scott “with malice aforethought”. It was both considered and returned by the grand jury on Monday morning.
If convicted, Slager could face a sentence of between 30 years and life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to Wilson.
Slager, 33, was a patrolman first class for the North Charleston police department when he fatally shot Scott, 50, following a struggle that led from a traffic stop when the officer noticed that one of Scott’s car tail lights was broken.
Who is Michael Slager, the officer who shot Walter Scott?
Police initially suggested that Scott had taken Slager’s Taser and posed a threat. However, video footage filmed on the cellphone of a passerby showed Scott being shot eight times from behind as he ran away empty-handed after a physical altercation with the officer.
Slager was fired from his job by city authorities after the footage came to light. He is being held at a county jail under protection.
Chris Stewart, the Scott family’s attorney, told the Guardian his clients were pleased to see “the wheels of justice turning in the right way”.
“The Scott family is as happy as can be,” said Stewart. “But of course the indictment does not make them whole for the loss they have suffered.”
Andrew Savage, Slager’s attorney, said in an emailed statement that the grand jury’s decision was “a formal step, but just another step in the criminal process”.
Savage complained that Slager’s legal team had not been shown details of the state’s case against the former officer.
“Until we have an opportunity to fully evaluate the state’s case and to compare it with our own investigation we will not be commenting on any aspect of the case,” he said.
Amid complaints from supporters of Slager that he will be unable to enjoy a fair trial in a county where Scott’s death is already notorious, Wilson said her office had no intention of moving the prosecution elsewhere. “I feel sure the people of Charleston County can decide it,” said Wilson.
“The issue is not whether or not someone has heard of this case,” said Wilson. “The issue is whether they can put everything they’ve heard aside and make a decision based on the facts and evidence presented in court.”
Several other officers who arrived at the scene of Scott’s shooting are likely to face questioning over whether they knew about discrepancies in the official version of events released before the emergence of video footage.
Wilson said at her press conference she had seen no probable cause to charge any of Slager’s former colleagues with criminal acts.
The Scott family’s legal team said on Monday they were readying a civil lawsuit against Slager, the North Charleston police department, police chief Eddie Driggers, and anyone else they deem responsible.
“We need to work out how we ended up in a position where a grand jury has to indict a law enforcement officer with murder,” said Justin Bamberg, another of the family’s attorneys. They expect to file the lawsuit in the coming months, he said.
Stewart and Bamberg said they had not yet decided whether other patrol officers who arrived at the scene of Scott’s death and made statements about Slager’s actions would be named in their civil suit.
The FBI and JTTF were monitoring the “suspect” 24 hrs a day. Was he set up in a Isis “honey trap” – Its most likely. Rahim only (allegedly) had a knife. Deadly force was used. The Burger King video is too far away to prove anything other than overwhelming force by JTTF, killing Rahim in the streets on Boston. The rest? Well you will just have to trust the authorities on all of that. ~ Jack
BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Surveillance video released Monday of the fatal shooting of a Boston man suspected of plotting to kill police officers shows six plainclothes officers surrounding him before opening fire.
The blurry video shows Usaamah Rahim, 26, walking through a CVS parking lot on his way to a bus stop in the city’s Roslindale neighborhood during the early morning hours of June 2.
Officers approach Rahim but back up as Rahim walks toward them in the parking lot. The officers draw their firearms, and Rahim, who is mostly obscured by a light pole during the altercation, falls to the ground.
It is not clear from the video what specifically led officers to draw their weapons or which officers discharged them. Police have said two officers — an FBI agent and a police officer — fired three shots. Officials released the original version of the video, which comes from a nearby Burger King restaurant, as well as a version that zooms in on the encounter.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said officers made multiple requests of Rahim to drop his knife.
“I think he was intent, as the affidavit said, on getting a boy in blue,” Evans said. “I don’t think, at this point, he was going to go down very easy.”
Darnell Williams, president of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, said the video largely corroborated the police account of the shooting. But Abdullah Faaruuq, an imam at the Mosque for the Praising of Allah in Boston, suggested it was “inconclusive” because it’s not clear if Rahim had a knife in his hand.
Ibrahim Rahim, who leads a mosque in Oakland, California, suggested in the hours after the shooting that his brother had been shot in the back. But the family recanted those statements after viewing the video, saying they were based on erroneous third-hand information.
A lawyer for Rahim’s family did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
Vincent Lisi, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston office, said members of the FBI and Boston police’s Joint Terrorism Task Force attempted to question Rahim after they intercepted a message suggesting Rahim planned to carry out an attack on police officers.
Officials have said Rahim had also talked about beheading anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller before deciding to target police.
Authorities have said the terrorism task force had Rahim under 24-hour surveillance and had intercepted conversations between Rahim and his nephew, David Wright, who was arrested last week on a charge of conspiracy with intent to obstruct a federal investigation. It isn’t clear whether Wright has an attorney.

That’s why the indictment focuses so much on what it refers to as the “centrality of the US financial system” to the alleged crimes: the use of US financial institutions gives prosecutors jurisdiction to prosecute the cases.
But the FIFA case actually has much stronger connections to the United States than one might have guessed.
The New York Times reports that the indictment was built on information obtained from former FIFA executive Chuck Blazer — a US citizen. Blazer, who was the general secretary of CONCACAF, the regional organization governing soccer in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean, secretly pleaded guilty in 2013 to charges including wire fraud, racketeering, money laundering, and tax evasion. Bloomberg describes him as a “former Westchester soccer dad.” Several other defendants are US citizens. And one of the corporate entities that already pleaded guilty is a US company, Traffic Sports USA.
CONCACAF has its principal administrative office is in Miami. And soccer is growing more popular in the US, which has raised the value of the marketing rights that were obtained through bribes.
In other words, this isn’t just a case of a federal prosecutor aggressively targeting conduct overseas. This is a case in which US individuals and a US company conspired to commit crimes with foreign co-conspirators, using US financial institutions, in order to exploit US and foreign markets. Viewed through that lens, it’s not surprising that the Justice Department decided that this was a good use of US federal resources.
Why Is the U.S. Desperate to OK Slavery in Malaysia? | 27 May 2015 | On Friday night, in an impressive display of dysfunction, the U.S. Senate approved a controversial trade corporate control bill with a provision that the White House, Senate leadership and the author of the language himself wanted taken out. The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.). At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking “concrete” steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a ‘trade’ deal. Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia…Observers are left with a deeper question: Why, in the year 2015, is the White House teaming up with Republican leaders essentially to defend the practice of slavery?
TISA: Yet Another Leaked Treaty You’ve Never Heard of Makes Secret Rules for the Internet | 27 May 2015 | A February 2015 draft of the secret Trade In Services Agreement (TISA) was leaked again last week, revealing a more extensive and more recent text than that of portions from an April 2014 leak that we covered last year. Together with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), TISA completes a trifecta of trade agreements that the administration could sign under Fast Track without full congressional oversight. Although it is the least well-known of those agreements, it is the broadest in terms of membership.
Live anthrax ‘inadvertently’ sent by U.S. military| 28 May 2015 | Four Defense Department workers in the United States and up to 22 overseas have been put in post-exposure treatment, a defense official said, following the revelation the U.S. military ‘inadvertently’ shipped live anthrax samples in the past several days. CNN learned on Wednesday a Maryland-based lab received the live samples, which prompted an across-the-board urgent review to see whether any other live anthrax has been shipped. Officials are concerned because samples left over at the lab in Dugway, Utah, where the samples originated, were tested and determined to contain live agent. Pentagon spokesman, Col. Steve Warren, said one sample was also sent to the Joint United States Forces Korea Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition Program at Osan Air Base. [A drill gone live?]
Live anthrax shipped across states, to S. Korea ‘by accident’ – Pentagon | 28 May 2015 | The Pentagon says that live anthrax was ‘inadvertently’ shipped across state lines from a military lab in Utah to nine other states and a military base in South Korea. However, a Department of Defense spokesperson says the public is not at risk. [?!?] One unnamed US official also told Reuters that anthrax samples were being shipped out from two military facilities for over a year, from March 2014 to April 2015. These samples were mistakenly marked inactive, the official said. While the anthrax samples were first moved out of Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, they were later shipped from Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in Maryland to federal, private and academic facilities.
Investigating the Investigators Congress has called for an investigation of the FBI’s work on the anthrax case. One major misstep was revealed Tuesday, when the Los Angeles Times reported that Peter Jahrling, a former senior civilian scientist at the Fort Detrick facility, admitted that he had made an “honest mistake” seven years ago when he told top FBI brass that he believed anthrax spores he examined had been altered to make them more deadly
