Iraq may have unleashed the West Nile Virus in the United States via Cuba through the release of migratory birds infected with the virus, and may be producing antiobiotic-resistant toxins for future attacks, according to two articles published in The Medical Sentinel, The Official Journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

In the first story, “West Nile Virus – Is Castro’s Bioterrorism Threat Being Ignored,” author Ernesto F. Betancourt, Castro’s Washington Representative in the 1950s and former Director of Radio Marti, outlines the possible Cuba-Iraq link. He tells how ornithologist Carlos Wotzkow was fired from Cuba’s Institute of Zoology after objecting to the creation of the “Biological Front,” an effort to develop viruses that could be carried by host birds or other means into the United States.

In a second article, “Cuba, Castro and Bioterrorism,” Augustin Blazquez, a documentary producer, says “…We clearly see that Castro has used this time to develop weapons of mass destruction in our backyard to be used against us.” Blazquez describes a previously ignored paper by Dr. Manuel Cereijo, a professor at Florida International University. “In 1992, the (Castro-controlled) Institute of Oceanographic Studies conducted an experiment with the Academy of Sciences to find out which places on the Cuban coast were the best to let bottles and containers reach the United States coast line fastest and most effectively,” writes Cereijo.

Cereijo claims that there are at least 12 Cuban centers producing bacteriological agents located around Havana, and that the U.S. government has had knowledge of these capabilities. He says one of the, La Fabriquita (“Little Factory”), is located across the street from the former Naval Hospital, disguised as an “Animal Feed Plant.” You need to pass through a station of the Cuban Armed Forces to enter.

Cereijo believes the plant is capable of producing A-232, an agent more toxic than previous nerve agents, and that La Fabriquita could be producing an anthrax-like toxin totally resistant to antibiotics. Concludes Blazquez, “The blackmail potential that this represents renders the U.S. and its people in grave danger and in an almost impotent situation.”
