Biological, or germ warfare, dates back to BC when armies sent plague victims into enemy territory. Britain used small pox in New South Wales around 1789, and possibly infected Native Americans in 1763. The Germans and the Japanese dispersed anthrax during WWI. Although the Geneva Protocol outlawed biological and chemical weapons in 1925, at the onset of WWII, the United Kingdom tested anthrax in Scotland, contaminating a region for over 50 years. During WWII, the US established an industrial complex in Maryland and tested its bio-weapons in Utah.

In 1972, the Biological Weapon’s Convention outlawed these weapons. One hundred seventy countries ratified the law as of 2013. Yet the threat remains. After the Gulf War, Iraq claimed to produce biological weapons. In 1984, terrorists used salmonella in Oregon. In 2001, anthrax delivered in mail resulted in four deaths. Terrorists were arrested in England in 2002 and 2003 for producing ricin. In 2004, Senate offices closed after ricin was found there. There is evidence that ISIS may have the drive and ability to use bio-weaponry. Many of these, like anthrax, are easy to produce.

The Freedom of Information Act revealed in 2002 that the Pentagon had secretly tested chemical weapons in the United States during the 60’s and 70’s. A report by Sue Chan of CBS news stated that deadly nerve agents were released in Alaska and bacteria was sprayed over Oahu, Hawaii. Twenty-eight biological and chemical weapons tests struck Alaska and Hawaii, and Canada and Britain in collaboration with those countries. Under Project 112, the US ran over two dozen biological and chemical weapons tests in Maryland, Florida, Utah and perhaps other states. Biological and chemical agents were sprayed on ships at sea. Many of those involved in the testing claimed they developed health problems after their exposure. The US agreed in 1977 to destroy their chemical weapons. Because the US had secretly tested these weapons, you might wonder if they destroyed them.

Scientists acknowledge that ethnic specific bio-weapons are a distinct possibility. The SARS virus may be an ethnic bio-weapon. It is unclear whether SARS can be created naturally versus manmade, and it has shown a propensity to attack Arabs and Asians. China admits to having research facilities dedicated to defensive biological weapons. The Washington Post reported that South African scientists, proficient in creating ethnic bio-weapons, made extended trips to China. China may also have these WMD for offensive use.

Bio-weapons and ethnic bio-weapons create a terrifying futuristic scenario, where terrorists and major power players use these death mechanisms. In Remote Viewer, Jazz uncovers ethnic bio-weapons in China, and questions the role of the US, in the clandestine distribution of them.



My novel, Remote Viewer, is in editing. I am starting this blog about it, and the subjects I used to weave the plot: biological warfare, China’s one-child policy and the US government’s remote viewing project.

The process of writing this conspiracy suspense has been an interesting and sometimes surprising adventure. I had to write it to find out what happens.

Before I began putting the story down, I spent months researching this spy phenomenon called remote viewing. Remote viewing is a technique where trained viewers mentally search and find distant targets. The government had been using remote viewers for espionage since WWII. Documents about the government’s $20,000,000 Stargate program that began in 1975, were declassified in the 1990’s and copies are available online. You can also find what’s known as the CRV (controlled remote viewing) manual online. According to the book by Courtney Brown called Remote Viewing, the project was very successful. If you read sources like Wikipedia you’ll find a different point of view. Why has the project been discredited and was it really shut down? (The word espionage begins with ESP.)

I think it’s possible that the US government still has a top-secret remote viewing unit buried somewhere in the National Clandestine Service. I have molded a present day NCS remote viewing division into my story.

The plot evolved further after I read a claim made by a journalist. He stated that Chinese assassins threatened to kill members of the Illuminati because they introduced a race specific disease into China. The Illuminati’s goal was population control. That also intrigued me and sparked an ongoing unraveling of ideas.

What do you think? Was the remote viewing project successful? If so, why was it discredited? Was it really shut down?
