Just as I foresaw and was warning elsewhere late last year, a likely real world 'Twelve Monkeys' Scenario has been exposed; a conspiracy involving rogue militarists, opportunists & elite ranks of eugenicist/bio-ethicists. See my other newsheadline at PrisonPlanet.com:

Porton Down Biowarfare - Top Brass Admits to ‘Increased Civilian Resilience’.
Porton Down Biowarfare & 'civilian resilience'.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Firstly, here is the original article of October 22nd to which I've added a lot of research based on The UK Ministry of Defence's 2008/9 National Security Strategy and the existance of the "Eyes-Only" Compendium document.

"Last night on Channel Four 7pm news (UK), A ‘General’ from Porton Down Weapons Research Establishment in full military dress was shown attending what appeared to be a ‘Commons Select Committee’ to attest to in the public domain testing or some other activity by the PWRE in recent times.
This ‘General’ when questioned about what had been going on recently and why responded to the effect of:
“We have had to upgrade/enhance/review/renew our activities in recent times BECAUSE OF INCREASED CIVILIAN RESILIENCE” . The Bold letters are a direct quote and the only bit that I got to write down in time.
This cannot be interpreted in many different ways. I’m fuming mad about this. I don’t want any tattle, opinions or BS, I just want the facts of what he’s referring to. I’m as mad as hell about all this. That’s it, my head just exploded. I’ve told C4 News to go further with this, or else I will with no respect for political correctness or sensibilities. They have acknowledged my request and sent it to the newsroom.
But I suggest we stop congratulating our massaged heads on how brilliant we are and do something, sooner rather than later."

RELATED: Army scientists ‘deployed in UKBBC NewsArmy scientists from Porton Down have been deployed in the UK a “number of times this year”, the government’s head of counter-terrorism has told MPs.

As explained on http://www.naturalnews.com/Wikipedia.html

An extract from the following Commons select committee report* was featured briefly on Channel 4 News, Oct 22nd, 2008.
So, thanks John Snow, you're not the best but I started a little investigation.

[extracts various]

Quote

Brigadier Chapman:(This is the original “resilience “ quote.)
"DSTL (Porton Down) have a number of immediate response teams. Those immediate response teams have been used a number of times this year. If they are not used we would argue that is probably a sign of success because of increasing civil resilience.

(note 'resilience with small 'r'.)

Quote

continued —
"The number of occasions they have been used and the circumstances I cannot obviously go into at this forum. Every civil power is aware of what can be brought to bear across a capability framework. The Protect framework and what the scientific support community can bring, all those who need to know seem to be aware because they are used on a regular basis."

 

Quote

Mr Ainsworth:
"MoD's ability to counter-terrorism in the maritime environment: MoD's responsibility with regards to rapid reaction in the air environment; and right through the whole spectrum to how you deal with a flu pandemic ..."

 

Quote

Mr Holloway:
"As a Military man you and, I guess, I, in my pathetic military career, were always told if you wanted to win an insurgency you did not need coordination forums, focus groups, secretariat, yet more self-licking lollipop process; we were told that you had to have unity of command and unity of purpose. Do we have either in the UK at the moment on this ... ?

 

Quote

Mr Hancock:
"I understand the implications, because it is about the ministers giving up power and nobody wants to do that.".”

 

Quote

Mr Day: (NB He is not listed as attending the group, and only makes this one single contribution — !?)
"As far as what the MoD is bringing is concerned, in terms of the operations we are conducting we bring the defence perspective, we bring the capabilities, we bring a level of understanding about operations and policy that does not exist anywhere else in Government. In terms of counter-terrorism and Resilience […] we bring a range of niche capabilities and a “back-up”, if you like. It is very difficult to explain when you are not part of it …
We are able to produce a strategy for Afghanistan that integrates and has the buy-in of very, very different actors from defence, through to DFID, through to the agencies ... "

 

Quote

Admiral Lord West of Spithead:
"For example, if we come into Resilience, ...

(note the Capital 'R' and the active Noun - name of an operation or status)

Quote

continued — ... there are a number of departments responsible and it gets pushed right down to a local level, so local government actually has its local Resilience forums and actually produces plans for things. [...] Now we have this overall stragegy it makes things a lot easier."

Quote

Mr Hancock:
"Can I ask a direct question of the Cabinet Office about Resilience. Do you know exactly at this moment how many members of the Armed Forces there are, where they are located, and what they would be able to do if you needed them? Do you know that now? If Resilience means anything it means they ought to know because the Ministry of Defence would have told them on a pretty regular basis."

 

Quote

Admiral Lord West of Spithead (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Security and Counter-Terrorism, Home Office):
"In the area, for example, of counter-terrorism [...] they have produced a defence, counter-terrorism and Resilience capabilities compendium - this never existed before - which the OSCT can look at; it says what operations they are involved in; what they are doing; what forces are available for certain things."

 

Quote

Mr Ainsworth:
"Capability is the compendium we have already talked about, and you can see that yourselves. It is a classified document, so we cannot make it ....."
[...]
"They are using it. There are requests for their assistance that come to me on a regular basis".[...]
"The purpose of The Compendium is to make sure that people know exactly what is available to them."

(Defence Capability is therefore defined by the contents of The Compendium?)

Quote

Mr Hancock:
"What are you doing about making sure those other agencies and departments know what is available there?"

 

Quote

Mr Ainsworth:
"[...] Defence capability is being used by lots of different people on lots of different occasions. It is difficult to go into specifics for obvious reason but they are being used. The purpose of creating The Compendium is to give greater visibility to everybody who needs so that they can use that capability."

 

Quote

Admiral Lord West of Spithead:
"What Establishment are we talking about?"

 

Quote

Mr Hancock:
"This is the Counter-Terrorism Science and Technology Centre at DSTL"  ...

Quote

Mr Ainsworth:
"If you put a single person in charge of the whole of the National Security environment, or the counter-terrorism environment in that regard, then that single minister winds up being responsible for MoD's ability to counter-terrorism in the ... "

(In the what? In the UK, in The Public Arena, in the Near Future - doesn't say.)


This work documents amongst other things scientific developments made at The Counter-Terrorism Science & Technology Centre at DSTL. This is a Pseudonym for Porton Down CBR Weapons Research Establishment.
So, did YOUR caring sharing Government know about these events in advance, it certainly knew of the risks of Bird Flu accidentally or otherwise entering our environment, the above CSC documents admit clearly to that ... But how deep does it go ... After the FMD crisis, the Government should indeed be well prepared, unless it doesn't care so much and prefer the rather secretive MOD, and it's compendium, to be all that it necessitates to facilitate a negotiation around a Bird_Flu Pandemic?
