  9. "Fort Detrick: From Biowarfare To Biodefense

    A metal fence surrounds the Army Medical Research
    Institute of Infectious Diseases in Frederick, Md. Earlier this week, a former
    scientist for the institute, Bruce Ivins, died in an apparent suicide. Ivins
    helped investigate the deadly anthrax attacks in 2001.

    What Is The
    USAMRIID?

    The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for
    Infectious Diseases was established by the Office of the Surgeon General of the
    Army on Jan. 27, 1969, to develop medical defenses against biological warfare
    threats. It is located at Fort Detrick, Md. 

    The
    institute's scientists develop vaccines, drugs, diagnostics and information to
    protect U.S. service members from biological warfare threats and endemic
    diseases. It is the only laboratory within the Defense Department to study
    highly hazardous viruses requiring maximum containment.

    The institute has helped to containdeadly diseases, such as Lassa fever, SARS and
    human monkeypox, since the 1970s.

    Q&A: Behind The Anthrax Investigations

    Who was Bruce
    Ivins, and why was he a target in the FBI's investigation of the 2001 anthrax
    attacks? Here, a look at the questions surrounding the case.

    Timeline: Anthrax Attacks

    Read a chronology of who was infected in the anthrax attacks
    and the FBI's pursuit of the culprit.

    Fort Detrick, Md., was created in the middle of
    World War II and became the center for America's biological warfare efforts.
    But that role shifted in 1969, the government says, to focus solely on defense
    against the threat of biological weapons.

    Then called Detrick Air Field, the science and
    research facility housed four biological agent production plants.

    Anthrax was considered the most important agent.
    Simulants were tested, and one bomb was readied for production in 1944. One
    million bombs were ordered, though the order was canceled when the war ended in
    1945.

    During the 1950s, the biological weapons program
    was among the most classified within the Pentagon. There was an emphasis on
    biological agents for use against enemy forces as well as plants and animals.

    The Army says no biological weapons were used
    during the Korean War, though such allegations were made by the Chinese and the
    Koreans.

    Growing
    Protests

    One plan at Fort Detrick in the late 1950s was to
    use the yellow fever virus against an enemy by releasing infected mosquitoes by
    airplane or helicopter. Detrick's labs were capable of producing a half-million
    mosquitoes per month, with plans for up to 130 million per month."

  11. "8. BIOLOGICAL ETHNIC WEAPONS: THE U.S.A. BIOTERRORIZES AMERICANS"
    IG Farben, AIDs, Anthrax, Eugenics
    "Before America became a nation, the regional powers which governed what would become the United States, used terrorism, mass murder, as well as biological and germ warfare to destroy and spread disease and epidemics among Native Americans. One of the first attacks (1) was initiated by General Jeffrey Amherst, who also lent his name to what became the town and college of Amherst, Massachusetts (2,3,4)."
