Many times in America, the president is the last person in the bureaucracy to know the truth, because there are just so many different levels in his administration. The president has donated $750 million to the fight to end the Ebola crisis, but Ebola is known to have existed on the African continent since 1976. It was always confined to rural areas of certain countries, and it was a self-extinguishing health condition.

But in 2014, something has changed, and now Ebola has the potential to become a worldwide pandemic. Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam is accusing the United States of deploying the virus to depopulate the world of the Black race. Many would claim that this argument is not based on facts, and the minister was just running his mouth.

But a writer for the Daily Observer in Liberia alleges that the Ebola virus was a laboratory research experiment that was financed by the U.S. Department of Defense. Dr. Cyril Broderick, professor of plant pathology, reports that the Department of Defense gave a contract worth $140 million to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company to conduct Ebola research. This research started January 2014, shortly before the current outbreak.

At this point, very little information is available on the Ebola virus, but claims are that healthy Africans are being given the virus so they can be studied and analyzed. This kind of experimentation is nothing new with the American medical profession—in 1945, African‑Americans were injected with uranium or plutonium as part of a radiation study.

Many African‑Americans remember when groups of Black men in Tuskegee, Ala., were injected with syphilis and never knew they were part of an experiment. The famous political advocate Fannie Lou Hamer went to a surgeon in Mississippi to have a small uterine tumor removed, and her entire uterus was removed. In certain parts of the South, this procedure was standard, and many African‑Americans believed it was done to decrease Black fertility.

Whether Farrakhan’s notion was a hunch or a guess, he might be correct in his analysis. Africa has been relegated to a human laboratory, and the United States cannot be trusted with its mission on the continent. The medical profession and the pharmaceutical companies are using Africa as a testing ground for hazardous chemicals, dangerous drugs and biological agents for emerging diseases.

The Ebola outbreak started in March 2014 in West Africa after the contract was signed in January 2014 with Tekmira. Disturbing reports are that the United States has a bioweapons research laboratory in Kenema, Sierra Leone, a town in the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak.

“What is the method that they are going to use to depopulate?” asks Farrakhan. “Through civil wars in which depleted uranium and Agent Orange are used. Another method is disease infection through bioweapons such as Ebola and AIDS, which are race-targeting weapons.”

More than 4,000 Africans have died as a result of the Ebola epidemic. Many Africans are blaming the West for the outbreak. If an American bioweapons research laboratory is injecting healthy Africans with the deadly virus, this must be exposed to the world.

The U.S. has a record of injecting African‑Americans with sterilizing drugs, and there is no telling what the U.S will do to the residents of poor countries for medical research. It is time for the U.S. Department of Defense to be forced to tell the truth and for the international media to expose these devious experiments. There has always been a plan to commit genocide against the Black race, and nothing has changed.
