BREAKING : Weaponized H5N1 - The Continuing Smoking Gun E-Mails from Kobe University PhD Student Teridah Ernala Ginting to The 5th Estate


The next report in The 5th Estate's series on the weaponized H5N1 virus created in secret labs in Japan's Kobe and Tokyo Universities by PhD student Teridah Ernala on orders from Yoshihiro Kawaoka and now what appears to be with the acquiescence and permission of Kobe and Tokyo University authorities

The 5th Estate
By Robert S. Finnegan
02/01/2012

This young Indonesian "scientist" through the years of our contact revealed to me the inner-workings of her "secret" lab at Kobe University and a new BSL-4 in Tokyo that was working on H5N1 and H1N1 viruses, among others.  Kobe University does NOT  officially have a BSL-4 lab, and yet this microbiologist was assigned by her professor Yoshihiro Kawaoka to work on recombinant H5N1 and H1N1 in a "secret" (her words) lab at their facility.  How and why was this allowed to transpire?  I have kept our association secret for years, however now that this individual has gone over to the "dark side," and I have decided to reveal everything we discussed in the hope it may stop this ghastly, man-made weaponized virus that is capable of killing millions of innocent people across the world.

Yoshihiro Kawaoka of Kobe/Tokyo Universities and Teridah Ernala
Kobe University authorities and "professor" Kawaoka, Shinya, Makino and other "directors" and participants of these nefarious projects preyed upon a young, incredibly naive and inexperienced Indonesian virologists to do their dirty-work.


It appears now that Kobe and Tokyo university authorities were complicit/involved in these illegal, unethical, immoral projects.  

One of the goals of Kawaoka and his masters was to engineer the weaponized H5N1 virus they created with Indonesian H5N1DNA, in order to eventually lay blame for a weaponized H5N1 pandemic on Indonesia, destabilizing it and opening the doors for invasion for it's natural resources under the guise of fighting the virus by WHO, CDC, NAMRU-2 and as always, the CIA along with the ever-present possibly of an invasion by the U.S. military to "assist" Indonesia in combating the virus.

Teridah Ernala Ginting was a patsy, at least in the beginning.

Afghanistan and Iraq are well aware of what it means to be "assisted" by the United States under the Bush and Obama regimes.

There may be a few repeats, however they are worth noting again in a different context as they comprise separate keys to the entire story which is now unfolding and being watched nervously by the world at large.  The e-mails will not be corrected for spelling, punctuation or format - and are republished in the original.

Robert,
I am now (in order of priority):
1. A PhD student in Microbiology and Infection Department, Division of Zoonosis, Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe University.
Our lab, even though named as Zoonosis Division, is an influenza lab. The head of the lab is Dr Yoshihiro Kawaoka, the associate professor is Dr Kyoko Shinya. Dr Kawaoka is never staying in our lab cos he's also the professor of Biomedical Science Tokyo University and Department of Virology Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison, also professor in St Jude Children Research Hospital. Dr Kawaoka always too busy, either in US or Tokyo. Mostly he's in US. He has close relation with other influenza researchers as Webster, Taunberger, Neumann, etc.
Our lab is new, just established on October 2007 (at that moment I was still in Tottori University). Dr Shinya is the main person in charge there, helped by assitant professor, Dr Akiko Makino (an ebola virus researcher). Our lab is also somehow special, only two students there, one is Japanese and me.
2. A researcher for CRC-ERID (I don't remember what it stands for ), but it's an institute for emerging and re-emerging disease research. It's funded by the RIKEN (a huge research development center). The CRC-ERID has joint collaboration with several countries to study several diseases. One of the country is Indonesia. For Indonesia it has works on dengue, malaria, typhoid fever, TB, etc and also avian influenza and other influenza. So I'm among the Indonesia project of influenza. For this purpose we work with Avian Influenza Laboratory, Tropical Disease Center, AIrlangga University Surabaya. The lab that I'm visiting when I'm going to Indonesia. The head of the lab is Dr Chairul Anwar Nidom, he's famous for avian influenza research. If you want to, I can introduce you to him.
My personal research themes are: the study of circulating oseltamivir resistant H1N1 virus (I mentioned before); the internalization of highly pathogenic H5N1 virus into cells; the study of PA gene of Indonesia human H5N1 virus in relation to its virulency; neuraminidase protein characteristic of horse influenza H3N8 which jumped and transferred its whole genome into dogs; and the pathogenicity of avian H5N1 virus to several local chicken breeds.
Too many subjects for a student, actually. Other students only have one subject, it's enough for graduation. Some may have two if one is not good enough. That's why I almost have no time for my self.
The project works where I'm involving at: surveillance and identification of recent circulating H5N1 in Indonesia; and serosurveillance of H5N1 antibody in poultry workers. Other research of Kawaoka and Nidom is study of H5N1 virus detected in 52 Indonesia pigs. Those themes have been presented in Asian Research Forum (a closed meeting) in Hokkaido December 2008 and Vietnam October 2008.
That's in general. You can ask me anything. :))

Dear Pak Nidom,

Regarding to your fax, dated 7 September 2009 to the President of Airlangga University, about your materials for cytokine profiling in healthy people study:

1.    The material you handed to Dr Masaoki Yamaoka on August 5th 2009, and then kept in ITD, should have been reported previously to us (at least to the head of ITD). In particular, if the material preceded using ITD’s material and equipment.
2.    The materials been brought by Ms. Makino without any supporting document from you, so that Ms Makino and materials could not depart to Japan. Because Ms Makino declared that the materials derived from Airlangga University, she was not arrested and allowed to embark. However the materials are still kept in Juanda airport.
3.    We regret the statement of Ms Makino mentioned that the materials came from Airlangga University, and described as zoonotic material. In fact, written statement from Dr Shinya and you mentioned that they were human samples.
4.    Regarding to the points above, we require you to come to Surabaya as soon as possible to solve this problem. This is a serious illegal practice related to MTA

Salam,
Ida

Hello Bob,

I'm fine thank you. I have returned to the work again.. Have a trouble here. My supervisor tried to smuggle human samples from Indonesia. The carrier got caught in Surabaya airport without any supporting documents. They marked the sample tubes with 'zoonotic material', but actually it was human RNA.

I wanna give up this project if they keep doing illegal things.

Somehow I agree with Obama's statement, about swine flu vacination. People should choose whether they want to be vaccinated or not. Vaccine has lot of side effect, lot of death reported because of vaccination. Especially, this vaccine is a new thing, lack of tests and trials. If I had a kid, I wouldn't give my kid swine flu vaccination.

Someone can also spread disease by mandatory vaccination. If it happens, this can eliminate US population. (Our emphasis).

Hey Bob,

I hope you have recovered from the flu. It is very interesting symptoms. We're now in Kobe trying to collect samples from patients who are developing variety of symptoms, in particular nervous signs. Your sample will be great.
In genereal you can use cotton bud to collect nasal and throat swab. Try to reach your throat as deep as you can, until you're about to puke.
Better to store the swabs at the fridge (4C), the best is deep freezer (-80C) but I pretty much sure you dont have any deep freezer. Instead, don't put the samples on common freezer, at fridge is enough. According to data, patient will keep shed virus until about 3-4 weeks after the fever fell. In mean time, don't circulate your virus :))
Catch you later, hi to Ima.

Hey Bob,

You right, freezing the samples won't hurt at appropriate temperature. The best temperature is deep freeze temperature (below -80 centigrade). I assumed you don't have that kinda of facility, that was why I asked you to cool it. Freezing temperature higher than -80 centigrade will not giving any difference with keeping it at 4 C. In fact, it may lower the survavibility of living virus (the genetic material will survive, though). I want to isolate the virus itself if possible, not only the RNA.

If you don't mind, please send the samples to our lab in Surabaya. By cool shipping if available. If no cool shipment, express delivery is OK. If you have extra samples, it will be great if you keep some spare with your self.

I will be back to work as soon as I arrived in Japan. It's been 3 weeks away, so I don't have any progress right now. My paper will be published soon. It's delayed because up to now I haven't get my recombinant virus experiement license issued.

The trouble of sample smuggling has caused bad relationship and break the trust between Indonesia and Japan, my professor will have no courage to visit Indonesia again. That's why I'm the only one who can do the experiment for Indonesia for next time. I will let you know my next visit to Indonesia, I'll let you join me.

Hope the best for the works.

Hi Bob,

You never bother me at al. I've returned back to Japan anyway, alone.

Do you subcribe for Promed Mail? According to the ProMed mail, of 5 samples they tested in Ukraine, all were H1N1. It is very possible, since the H1N1 has caused number of pneumonic deaths recently. In Kobe, now we're dealing with over than 40 samples of H1N1, and some of them are from fatal patients. Mostly they are young people, around 30-year-old, some are infants.
Similar things occured in other countries too, like the Netherlands.
Despite of H1N1, I have another suspicion, the pneumonic plague. It has been used for biological weapon in WW2. Some similar cases were reported few months ago, long before the pandemic started, at the border of Egypt and Libya where people developed respiratory signs, and the officials denied anything about pneumonic plague. Some reported about plague leakage of a military laboratory around there. No one can be sure.

By the way, have you heard about the new minister of health [Dr. Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih, MPH]?? Ex NAMRU2. She's going to re-open the NAMRU2.

Hello Bob,

Happy new year to both of you too.
My husband is here in Kobe, for a couple of month. Pandemic is going steady, we observed only pretty small changes on the virus. As I said before this virus is very stable.
Small percentage of patients died, mostly due to lung failure. The H1N1 itself not the only thing people fear about, but if the virus mixed with H5N1. H5N1 endemic country like Indonesia is catching everyone's attention now.
Just keep being aware.

Hi Robert,
Thank's for the article. It's very interesting. I'm sorry it took a while to write to you.
Yeah, I'm a lil bit worry of swine flu vaccination. For me  vaccination is not necessary for this kind of mild disease. It will trigger the virulency of the virus. When it happens, current vaccination won't give any help.
Maybe I'm wrong (and I hope).
Right now, I'm still looking for the correlation of vaccination to the spread of swine flu. As you know, the disease started to spread from countries which familiar with seasonal flu vaccination. A study showed that the swine flu virus didn't not respond to seasonal flu vaccine strain antibody. It means, if the virus is a hand made, then the maker was intentionally trying to make it not responsive to any available vaccine. It's only my insight.
I'm very OK. Thank's. The work is still going on. But, I'm going to present some part of my result in a virologist meeting next october.
I hope you're doing well too.
Take care.
Ida

Hi Robert,
I know some others who are thinking the same. No one sure how the virus merged from the lab. I think you know better  
But I'm still thinking that 1970 lab accident is way to far from the current pandemic. From 1970 to now, we didn't see this kind of virus circulating, that's pretty funny for me.
No animals have the virus also, another funny thing.
Where was the virus surviving? How did it appear? I really want to know this.
By the way, I'll visit Makassar this July. But the schedule is strict so I can't visit Jakarta or Bogor.

Hi Robert,
Thank you for the article.
It seems the scientist couldn't find any prove that the swine flu virus derived from animal. They couldn't find any animal having this virus.
It's interesting isn't it? Where did it come from then?

I found some articles saying swine flu vacination. Everyone knows the vaccine hasn't produced yet, but the company successfully fooled Indonesians.
It was from Glaxo Smith-Kline company.

Hi Bob, Ima,

(Redacted - personal).

Black lung/pneumonia seems like the cause of fatality. They found a mutation in HA gene of virus from Ukraine's victim. The mutation is located in receptor binding site of virus.

Thanks for the greetings.
I have returned to work, and am now focussing for my graduation thesis. I have many things to catch from now on.
About the vaccination thing, I agree with your microbiologist friend. I insisted not to take a flu shot when I was pregnant, even though it was given for free at that time. I'm glad I never take it.
I didn't know you have a friend in Kobe University. I don't know him though, but I promise to look for him in case of necessary.
Good luck with your book and everything.

The series continues with more Smoking Gun E-mails from Teridah Ernala, and interviews over a decade later with some of the principles.

Both Tokyo and Kobe university authorities have not returned repeated requests for comment or inquired about viewing the evidence in his case with an eye to opening a public investigation.  The 5th Estate has offered this evidence in order to assist Japanese investigators should they desire to review it.

Robert S. Finnegan is a retired investigative reporter, journalism professor and U.S. Marine Corps NCO based in Jakarta, Indonesia.  He has been working this case since 1997, one of two still open, the other case being the Bali bombings of 2002.



Under the Jackboot of an American Secretary General, INTERPOL Now Tracking Dissidents


Indonesia has no extradition treaty with the U.S. or Interpol; Exiles/expats in Indonesia under Deadly Force Laws may kill ANY foreigners attempting to cause them or their families harm in Indonesia, and The Publisher, 5th Estate will not hesitate

Indepth Africa
02/01/2012

Welcome to the new INTERPOL – the International Criminal Police Organization — a carbon copy of the INTERPOL that was briefly headquartered in Berlin under the Nazi regime. Today, INTERPOL, an international law enforcement agency composed of 190 members nations, INTERPOL, headquartered in Lyon, France, is under the control of Secretary General Ron K. Noble, a former Undersecretary for Enforcement of the U.S. Treasury Department. Under Noble, INTERPOL is tracking political dissidents while leaving gangsters and other criminals, especially those wanted by Russia, remain at large.

Yet another Obama/CIA run terror organization
Noble was the head of the Treasury Department’s “Waco Administrative Review Team,” which covered up the actions of his Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in their siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. That siege resulted in the deaths of 84 members of the separatist Seventh Day Adventist sect, including their leader David Koresh, and four of Noble’s BATF agents in a deadly shootout that was followed by the burning down of the sect’s compound.

In 2000, Noble was elected the first American Secretary General of INTERPOL. He is now in his third term. Perhaps it was fitting that Noble was re-elected INTERPOL Secretary General in 2005 at the INTERPOL General Assembly in Berlin. In 1942, INTERPOL headquarters were moved from Vienna to Berlin. From 1938, following the Austrian union with Nazi Germany, INTERPOL’s Secretaries General included four German SS generals: Otto Stenhausl, Gestapo and Sicherheitsdienst (SD) Security Service chief Reinhard Heydrich – assassinated in a Prague suburb by Czechoslovak agents in 1942, Arthur Nebe – head of the KRIPO criminal police and executed for his part to assassinated Adolf Hitler in 1944, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner – executed for war crimes after the Nuremburg trials.

Illegal Interpol arrest warrant for Julian Assange
During INTERPOL’s control by Nazi generals, the international law enforcement organization became a virtual arm of Nazi German intelligence. Today, the so-called international law enforcement organization is a subsidiary of not only American intelligence, but the intelligence and security services of its dictatorial member states.

Noble, an African-American, who, like his friend and fellow African-American, Attorney General Eric Holder, makes no effort to hide his reverence for police state tactics in the United States and abroad, has embarked on a tolerance for INTERPOL member states issuing arrest warrants for political dissidents. Noble, who is the son of an African-American father and a white German mother, represents a new cadre of police state-oriented mulatto U.S. leaders. This tendency among a new generation of African-American political leaders can also seen with Barack Obama, the son of a black African father and white American mother and Holder, the off-spring of light-skinned Barbadian parents hailing from a gentry descendant from wealthy sugar cane plantation owners and their slave hands. Noble has been mentioned as a strong candidate to replace Robert Mueller as the director of the FBI, thus continuing the grooming of “pass-for-white” security state promoters and defenders into positions of authority.

Hand-in-hand terrorists to hunt down, kill U.S. dissidents
On December1, 2011, INTERPOL issued a Red Notice arrest warrant for West Papua independence leader Benny Wenda, the Oxford-educated leader of the Free West Papua who is now a citizen of the United Kingdom. Wenda heads the Free West Papua Campaign and lives in exile with his family in the United Kingdom. Wenda is fighting for the independence of his homeland from Indonesia, which annexed the former Dutch New Guinea after a dubious 1969 plebiscite organized by the United Nations. The Free Papua Movement (OPM), which Indonesia charges Wenda supports, has waged a campaign against Indonesian security forces, some of whom are in West Papua to protect the activities of the U.S. mining company Freeport McMoran, a company on whose board former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has served upon. West Papuan activists charge that Freeport McMoran has achieved a concordat with the Indonesian government to suppress the activities of the OPM and its allies, in order to protect the firm’s mining interests in the territory.

President Barack Obama’s Indonesian step-father, Lolo Soetoro, was in charge of an Indonesian army unit assigned to put down the rebellion in West Papua. In the late 1960s, Soetoro was assigned to a unit preventing West Papuans from receiving support from their Papuan comrades in Papua New Guinea, then an Australian colony.

Interpol pigs sending American to cozy CIA "black site"
Noble, by issuing the Red Notice, is essentially requiring the UK and any other nation where Wenda visits to arrest the activist with the provision that he be extradited to face trial in Indonesia where he is considered an “enemy of the state.” The Wenda case is not the only one in which Noble and his staff, which includes senior counsel Yoran Gottlieb appears more interested in protecting Israeli leaders wanted for war crimes and Russian Jewish oligarchs on the lam from Russian authorities than in applying the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights pursuant to Article 2 of INTERPOL’s constitution.

INTERPOL enjoys diplomatic immunity and extraterritorial rights in France and INTERPOL’s activities, including the amassing of huge data bases on people around the world, are exempt from French laws like the 1978 act governing the protection and use of personal data. Pursuant to a December 17, 2009, executive order issued by President Obama, INTERPOL was granted increased immunity when operating within the borders of the United States, including protection from law suits by American citizens and residents, including political refugees and asylum seekers, affected by INTERPOL’s arrest and surveillance orders.

U.S. citizens are barred from accessing files maintained on them by INTERPOL since subpoenas, Freedom of Information and Privacy Act requests, or even legal search warrants do not apply to the organization, thanks to Obama’s executive order.

The result of Obama’s executive order providing INTERPOL with such immunity is that INTERPOL agents operating in the United States, including FBI agents seconded to INTERPOL, enjoy virtual diplomatic immunity and operate above U.S. law. Current Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich pointed out the danger to American citizens arising from Obama’s executive order in asking, “Why would the President of the United States give that kind of extralegal protection to an international police force?”

The United States has routinely arrested individuals based on flimsy Red Notices issued by foreign dictatorships, most of which are clients of the United States. In the United States INTERPOL is represented by a National Central Bureau (NCB), which is operated by the FBI. The NCB has routinely ignored the political nature of INTERPOL Red Notices and Blue Notices – requests to closely track and conduct covert surveillance on wanted individuals – to arrest and deport Rwandan opposition political leaders arbitrarily fingered as “genocidists” by Rwandan dictator and U.S. ally Paul Kagame. On the other hand, Russian Red Notices for Russian-Israeli oligarchs like Leonid Nevzlin, wanted for murder by the Prosecutor General for Russia, go unheeded by Washington, which has granted Nevzlin a visa to travel between the United States and Israel at his convenience. The United States has also ignored INTERPOL Red Notices for the arrest of associates of the jailed Russian tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky. As with Nevzlin, the two wanted ex-Yukos oil and gas company businessmen, Mikhail Brudno, a resident of Israel and Lithuania, and Vladimir Dubov, who also lives in Israel, have been issued visas to travel to and from the United States at their leisure. INTERPOL fugitive and exiled Russian-Israeli tycoon Boris Berezovsky has also managed to avoid arrest thanks to protection from the United Kingdom and Israel.

It is more than apparent that Noble and Gottlieb sit in the massive INTERPOL headquarters in Lyon to protect the interests of members of the “club,” including the United States, Israel, Indonesia, Rwanda, China, Bahrain, Sweden, Maldives, and Sri Lanka. Usually, political dissidents are subject to Red Notice arrest warrants on trumped up charges that they have committed fraud or are engaged in money laundering. In some cases, businessmen and politicians are subject to a Red Notice for failing to pay a bribe to corrupt police officials to avoid a Red Notice.

The bottom line in dealing with Noble’s INTERPOL is if you are a political dissident like Benny Wenda wanted for seeking independence for your people, you face arrest. However, if you are a Russian-Israeli oligarch who has looted the Soviet and Russian Treasuries of billions of rubles, you are home free. Noble has certainly earned his points with the elites who run the planet.

There is no reason for an American, with his open and hidden agendas, to serve as Secretary General of INTERPOL. In his State of the Union address, President Obama declared that those who believed American is in decline “don’t know what they’re talking about.” To the contrary, Obama doesn’t know what he’s talking about. America is in decline as a superpower and it is high time that Americans no longer be granted automatic lordship over such institutions as the World Bank, INTERPOL, and the military command of NATO. In fact, all three institutions can do the proper thing and dissolve themselves or be prepared to be dissolved.

US 'no-fly' list of Suspected "Terrorists" Doubles in 12 months; Journalists/Activists/Occupy Protesters Beware


Time is running out:  Soon it will be flee or die (in the camps, from medical experiments); Obama terrorists slowly closing net confining all opposition, leadership travel to easily pick them up;  Illegal classified log of individuals banned from flying into or within America as they are considered a threat stands at 21,000; Americans have every right to see illegal list they paid for

Associated Press
02/03/2012

The size of the US government's secret list of suspected terrorists who are banned from flying to or within the country has more than doubled in the past year.

The no-fly list jumped from about 10,000 known or suspected terrorists one year ago to about 21,000, according to government figures. About 500 are US nationals.

The flood of new names began after the failed Christmas 2009 bombing of a Detroit-bound jetliner when the US government lowered the standard for putting people on the list and scoured its files for anyone who qualified. "We learned a lot about the watchlisting process and made strong improvements, which continue to this day," said Timothy Healy, director of the Terrorist Screening Centre, which produces the no-fly list.

Among the most significant new standard is that a person doesn't have to be considered only a threat to aviation to be placed on the list.

People considered a broader threat to domestic or international security or who attended a terror training camp are also included, said a US counter-terrorism official who spoke on condition of anonymity. As agencies complete the reviews of their files, the pace of growth is expected to slow, the counter-terrorism official said.

Americans simply need to refuse to fly, airlines won't last a week


The American Civil Liberties Union has previously sued the US government on behalf of Americans who believe they are on the no-fly list and have not been able to travel by air for work or to see family.

"The news that the list is growing tells us that more people's rights are being violated," said Nusrat Choudhury, of the ACLU. "It's a secret list, and the government puts people on it without any explanation. Citizens have been stranded abroad."

People who complain they're unfairly on the list can submit a letter to the homeland security department, but the only way they'll know if they're still on the list is to try to fly again, she said.

While the list is secret, it is subject to continuous review to ensure the right people are on it and that those who shouldn't be are removed, said Martin Reardon, a former chief of the FBI's terrorist screening operations centre.

TSA criminals just busted for stealing $5,000 U.S. from passenger
If a person is nominated to be on the no-fly list, but there is insufficient information to justify it, the person is downgraded to a different list, he said. "You can't just say: 'Here's a name. Put him on the list.' You've got to have articulable facts."

On average, there are 1,000 changes to US watchlists each day, most of which involve adding new information about someone on the list.

The no-fly list previously swelled to 20,000 people in 2004. At the time, people including the late Ted Kennedy, a sitting senator, were being stopped before flying.

The US transportation security administrator, John Pistole, said instances of travellers being mistaken for terrorists were, however, down significantly since the US government and not airlines became responsible for checking the list.

Travellers must provide their full name, birthdate and gender when purchasing an airline ticket so the government can screen them against the terror watchlist.

First Strike by U.S. State Department: Requiring Huge Fees to Renounce or Keep U.S. Citizenship; Already Beginning to Bar Door Out of U.S. for Escapees from Obama Tyranny; Next is "Passport Denial List"


Just the beginning and as Hitler did to the Jews; Obama, State now desensitizing Americans to being marooned in their own country, barred from leaving unless all valuables are surrendered to U.S. government criminals and making it impossible for U.S. Citizens to flee; next up:  "Passport No Travel List" denying U.S. passports to American Citizens who are outspoken against the Obama totalitarian regime; Obama, DOS now robbing Exiles/expats for passport, notarization fees that are free by U.S. law

Note from The 5th Estate Editor:  We recommend all American citizens get their families' passports NOW.  Do not wait until Martial Law is declared or your name is assigned to a "Passport Denial List" by the traitorous Obama regime - after which you will never leave.  This is the best insurance policy you can buy:  Rather than being forced to fight on the streets American leaders/patriots must escape to fight another day under conditions favorable to US.

WASHINGTON (AP) —

U.S. citizenship is priceless to some, worthless to others. But now the State Department has a dollar figure: U.S. citizenship is worth $450.

At least that's what it will cost you to renounce it.
Under new consular fees published Thursday in the Federal Register, the cost of processing a formal renunciation of U.S. citizenship skyrocketed from $0 to $450. The announcement locks in fee hikes that had been proposed in 2010 and instituted on an interim basis.

The State Department doesn't say how or why it calculated the cost. Citizenship is free for most Americans who are accorded the privilege at birth. The department says only that it "has decided that the renunciant should pay this fee at the visit during which he or she swears the oath of renunciation."

It's also getting more expensive if you want to keep your U.S. citizenship and need a passport to prove it. The application fee for a passport is jumping by 27 percent, from $55 to $70 with a 100 percent increase, from $20 to $40, in the passport security surcharge.

In addition to the increase in the application fee, the department will now charge $82 — up from nothing — to add new pages to a U.S. passport.

It says the fee is needed to offset the cost of the pages, the time spent affixing the pages into the passport book, endorsing the passport and performing a quality-control check.

And, registering the overseas birth of an American child is going up as well. It will now cost $100 to apply for a report of a birth abroad, up from $65.

The cost of getting a document notarized at a U.S. embassy abroad is also going up. The new price is $50 for a single page, up from $30, according to the new fee schedule.

Lying Kawaoka Now Claims Kobe/Tokyo University Illegal Weaponized H5N1 Creation Wasn't Lethal - Attempting, Failing at Damage Control After Exposure by The 5th Estate


This is the same Rovian play at "hiding in plain sight;"  Kawaoka copies Bush, Cheney, world leaders, instead of trying to find big rock to hide under brazenly thumbs his nose at, lies to international public; forgets he, Shinya, Ernala also have to deal with multiple espionage charges for attempting to steal - and being caught at it by Indonesian authorities at Juanda International Airport - Indonesian H5N1 using his lackey courier Makino

Breaking a prolonged silence, the author of one of two controversial studies dealing with mutant H5N1 viruses said today that the virus his team created went airborne to spread among ferrets, but it didn't kill them.

In a commentary in Nature, Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Tokyo said the mutant virus was actually a hybrid combining the hemagglutinin (HA) gene from an H5N1 strain with other genes from a pandemic 2009 H1N1 virus.

Kawaoka's study is one of two that sparked a Dec 20 recommendation by the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) that journals publish only the general findings, minus details that could enable others to replicate the studies. The board's concern is that the full reports could lead to intentional misuse of the data or accidental release of the viruses.

The journals involved, Nature and Science, have indicated they plan to comply with the recommendation if a method can be devised to share the full studies with scientists who need them for legitimate research.

In a related development today, several experts quoted in a news report in Nature said the two controversial studies are unlikely to yield immediate public health benefits, contrary to the assertions of the authors and other scientists who have argued for publication of the full details. The other study was conducted by a team led by Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Centre in the Netherlands.

Two studies differ

Kawaoka's commentary marks the first release of any substantive information about his study. Previous reports have indicated that his study was generally similar to Fouchier's, but the commentary indicates that there are noteworthy differences.

Kawaoka attempted to steal Indonesian H5N1
Fouchier gave a general description of his findings last September at a flu conference in Malta and has talked to journalists about them a number of times since. According to those accounts, his team, aiming to determine which mutations could render H5N1 viruses more transmissible, engineered certain mutations in H5N1 strains and then infected ferrets with them. Ferrets are considered the best animal model of human flu.

The resulting virus still didn't spread easily, so Fouchier's team then passed the strain through a series of ferrets by infecting one, waiting until it got sick, and then using a sample from it to infect another. After ten such "passages," the virus had acquired five additional mutations and was able to spread via airborne droplets, according to the accounts. The virus reportedly killed the ferrets in all cases.

Kawaoka's team, unlike Fouchier's, fused the HA gene from an H5N1 strain with the remaining genes from a 2009 H1N1 virus. "We identified a mutant H5 HA/2009 virus that spread between infected and uninfected ferrets . . . in separate cages via respiratory droplets in the air," he writes. "Thus viruses possessing an H5 HA can transmit between mammals."

"Our results also show that not all transmissible H5 HA-possessing viruses are lethal," he adds. "In ferrets, our mutant H5 HA/2009 virus was no more pathogenic than the pandemic 2009 virus—it did not kill any of the infected animals. And, importantly, current vaccines and antiviral compounds are effective against it."

Besides describing his study, Kawaoka uses the commentary to assert the need for such research and to voice disagreement with the NSABB recommendation.

He writes that his study and Fouchier's identify particular mutations that make H5-HA-containing viruses transmissible in ferrets, adding, "A subset of these mutations has been detected in H5N1 viruses circulating in certain countries. It is therefore imperative that these viruses are monitored closely so that eradication efforts and countermeasures (such as vaccine-strain selection) can be focused on them, should they acquire transmissibility."

Kawaoka asserts that omitting the details of the two studies will not eliminate the risk that malefactors could use the data to do harm, because enough information is already available to allow someone to make a transmissible virus containing H5 HA. At the same time, the step will make it harder for legitimate scientists to get the information, he writes.

Kawaoka notes that he is one of 39 flu researchers who last week announced a voluntary 60-day moratorium on H5N1 transmission research to allow time for discussion of the issues. "But our work remains urgent—we cannot give up," he concludes.

Insane virologist Kawaoka created illegal, weaponized H5N1 at Kobe
Given that the virus generated by Kawaoka's team was not lethal in ferrets, it was not clear today why the NSABB included his study in its recommendation against full publication. NSABB members who were queried by CIDRAP News today did not comment specifically on that question, but one of them said the board would publish information next week in Nature and Science that will address such questions.

"The NSABB has written several statements and responses to questions from Nature and Science editors that are about to be published in Science and Nature that have answers to these questions. This is all in press and should be out in a week or so," said Lynn W. Enquist, PhD, who is Henry L. Hillman professor and chair of the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University.

Doubts about early payoff

In the Nature news article, a number of flu experts said the controversial studies have value but, because of the world's limited flu surveillance capabilities, they are not likely to yield immediate benefits.

Knowledge of the specific H5N1 mutations linked to increased transmissibility in ferrets will make it possible to watch for them in birds and other animals, potentially leading to an early warning of a pandemic, according to Kawaoka, Fouchier, and others.
 
CIA owned Nature trying to cover for Kawaoka
"That claim is meeting with skepticism, however," says the story by Nature reporter Declan Butler. "More than a dozen flu experts contacted by Nature say they believe that the work opens up important vistas in basic research, and that it sends a valuable warning about the potential for the virus to spark a human pandemic. But they caution that virus surveillance systems are ill-equipped to detect such mutations arising in flu viruses. As such, work on the viruses is unlikely to offer significant, immediate public-health benefits, they say."

Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, and other researchers said the idea that the research offers a guide to dangerous strains that could be stamped out before they spread is unrealistic, according to the story.

"In order to even consider the possibility of reducing the animal reservoir of an emerging pandemic virus, one would need rapid and complete detection of virus in all geographical areas," said Osterholm, who is director of the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, publisher of CIDRAP News, and an NSABB member.

Such an achievement is unlikely, since surveillance of H5N1 in poultry worldwide is patchy, especially in poorer countries, where the virus is prevalent, the story said.

In addition, Butler wrote, few flu virus samples are ever sequenced: "Last year, global surveillance resulted in partial sequences from just 160 H5N1 isolates being submitted to GenBank, the main repository of such data . . . . And virus isolates are often sequenced months or years after they are collected—hardly the swift turnaround of a pandemic alert system."

"Could we pick up a mutation in real time and stop a pandemic? Not with the surveillance we have now,” said Ilaria Capua, an animal flu expert at the Experimental Animal Health Care Institute of Venice in Legnaro, Italy.

U.S. military says Taliban set to retake power: report


Obama desensitizing U.S. sheep to accept deaths of family members for nothing; entire White House crew along with Bush criminals need to be tried for War Crimes, Genocide; coward next of kin will let government do anything to them and lick the boots of their murderers in the process

Reuters
01/31/2012

The United States military has said in a secret report that the Taliban, backed by Pakistan, are set to retake control over Afghanistan after NATO-led forces withdraw from the country, Britain's Times of London newspaper said Wednesday.

"Many Afghans are already bracing themselves for an eventual return of the Taliban," the newspaper said, quoting the report. "Once ISAF (NATO-led forces) is no longer a factor, Taliban consider their victory inevitable," it quoted the report.

The Times said the "highly classified" report was put together by the U.S. military at Bagram air base in Afghanistan for top NATO officers last month. The BBC also carried a report on the leaked document.

Large swathes of Afghanistan have already been handed back to Afghan security forces, with the last foreign combat troops due to leave by the end of 2014.

The document cited by the Times and the BBC also stated that Pakistan's powerful security agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), was assisting the Taliban in directing attacks against foreign forces -- a charge denied by Islamabad.

Washington and its allies have long complained that the Taliban and other Islamist and criminal groups operate out of safe havens in tribal areas in Pakistan's west and northwest.

The document's findings were based on interrogations of more than 4,000 Taliban and al Qaeda detainees, the Times said, adding however it identified only few individual insurgents.

A State Department spokesman and Britain's Foreign Office both declined comment on the report. NATO and Pakistani officials could not immediately be reached for comment.


Taliban have won Afghan "war," history repeats itself once again
Despite the presence of about 100,000 foreign troops, violence in Afghanistan is at its worst since the Taliban were ousted by U.S.-backed Afghan forces in 2001, according to the United Nations.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) says levels of violence are falling.

Citing the same report, the BBC reported on its website (here)

that Pakistan and the ISI knew the locations of senior Taliban leaders and supported the expulsion of "foreign invaders from Afghanistan."

"Senior Taliban leaders meet regularly with ISI personnel, who advise on strategy and relay any pertinent concerns of the government of Pakistan," it said.

Pentagon officials said they had not seen the reports and could not comment on their specifics.

But Pentagon spokesman George Little said: "We have long been concerned about ties between elements of the ISI and some extremist networks."

Little said U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "has also been clear that he believes that the safe havens in Pakistan remain a serious problem and need to be addressed by Pakistani authorities."

The Times said in its report the document suggested the Taliban were gaining in popularity partly because the austere Islamist movement was becoming more tolerant.

It quoted the report: "It remains to be seen whether a revitalized, more progressive Taliban will endure if they continue to gain power and popularity. Regardless, at least within the Taliban, the refurbished image is already having a positive effect on morale."
