    The Buffalo News article about this is posted here:


    I tried to look up the Senate Hearing testimony on this, but learned that it is not available in the OU Government Documents library. I might be able to get it on microfilm in Oklahoma City. If anyone can find this, it would be good to scan the relevant parts and put them online.

    I found a summary of it in the 1994 CIS Index, page 527, S-242-3. The document was entitled U.S. Chemical and Biological Warfare-Related Dual Use Exports to Iraq and their Possible Impact on the Health Consequences of the Persian Gulf War, May 25, 1994, 103-2.

    The summary says that the document includes a list of U.S. exports of biological materials to Iraq, 1985-89.

    Admiral William Crowe was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the 80s. Now he sits on the board of BioPort, the only U.S. drug company which is making the anthrax vaccine. Ain't that a funny coincidence?


    The low-down gangster Crowe was at the University of Oklahoma for a few years in the early 90s as a "professor of geopolitics." OU gives haven to more trash, criminals, and scum than you can shake a stick at.

    OU's President, former U.S. Senator David Boren, is a perfect example. Boren was one of the most right-wing Democrats in Congress and was prominent in the hawkish Committee for Peace Through Strength. Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, he was an important supporter of the Reagan-Bush program to funnel arms and money to the same gang of Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan in the 80s who later evolved into the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

    Boren sits on the board of five major corporations, including American Airlines and Conoco-Phillips. Maybe his pal Crowe will tip him off about when it's a good time to do some BioPort stock trading.
