[ Editor’s note: The story was originally broken by VT in 2011, and then aided by Russia Today in 2012 and 2013. VT Tbilisi Bureau Chief Jeffrey Silverman received plans for the building of a bioweapons facility from Bechtel employees who abandoned a briefcase at a local bordello staffed by VT friends and informants.
A video tour of the facility by RT was truncated when key lab areas were denied access, VT then briefed RT on where weapons were made in the vast and mysterious facility.
Prior to the initial Russian investigation of the WMD facility, key components were taken to the local airport, truckloads of precursors for not only bio-weapons but the manufacture of Sarin gas along with weaponization and delivery components as well.
Problem is, VT people loaded and drove the trucks. It doesn’t just end there, this year we caught Bechtel security personnel in Georgia, along with those of British Petroleum, transiting advanced TOW missiles to Turkish security officers and on to ISIS in Iraq. They picked up Silverman who was later released, unharmed this time.
In the article below, Gertz fails to credit Silverman and VT nor does he reference the investigative work and documentary by Russia Today. If Gertz would like the plans for this WMD facility, I am sure we could arrange it… Gordon Duff ]
Russia recently charged the Pentagon with expanding a network of biological weapons laboratories in Europe, a charge the State Department denies. A new Russian national security strategy document describes the United States and NATO as threats and warns of the “uncertainty about instances of foreign states’ possession of biological weapons and their potential for developing and producing them.”
“The network of U.S. military-biological laboratories on the territory of states adjacent to Russia is being expanded,” says the strategy, made public Dec. 31.
U.S. officials and arms analysts said the Russian charge is false. Blake Narendra, a spokesman for the State Department’s arms control, verification and compliance bureau, said the United States is in full compliance with the Biological Weapons Convention, which bans production and stockpiling of germ weapons.
“The United States government supports public and animal health laboratories around the world whose mission it is to safely and securely detect and report the outbreaks of diseases,” Narendra told the Washington Free Beacon. “There is no research or storage at these facilities involving biological or any other kind of weapon,” he said.
“Activities for peaceful purposes, to include the prevention of disease, are explicitly permitted under the BWC,” he continued, using an acronym for the Biological Weapons Convention.
