In an extensive article in the Summer-Autumn 1990 issue of 'Top Secret',

Prof J. Segal and Dr. L. Segal outline their theory that AIDS is a man-made

disease, originating at Pentagon bacteriological warfare labs at Fort

Detrick, Maryland. 'Top Secret' is the international edition of the German

magazine Geheim and is considered by many to be a sister publication to the

American Covert Action Information Bulletin (CAIB). In fact, Top Secret

'The fatal weakening of the immune system which has given AIDS its name

(Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome),' write the Segals, 'has been traced

back to a destruction or a functional failure of the T4-lymphocytes, also

called 'helper cells`, which play a regulatory role in the production of

antibodies in the immune system.'

In the course of the illness, the number

of functional T4- cells is reduced greatly so that new anti-bodies cannot

be produced and the defenceless patient remains exposed to a range of

infections that under other circumstances would have been harmless. Most

AIDS patients die from opportunistic infections rather than from the AIDS

virus itself. The initial infection is characterized by diarrhea,

erysipelas and intermittent fever. An apparent recovery follows after 2-3

weeks, and in many cases the patient remains without symptoms and functions

normally for years. Occasionally a swelling of the lymph glands, which does

not affect the patient's well-being, can be observed. After several years,

the pre-AIDS stage, known as ARC (Aids- Related Complex) sets in. This

stage includes...
