Quoting Ron Tibbs, an American Expat living in Sweden:
"We have 5,000+ birds and around 100,000 fish dead in Arkansas within 100 or so miles of one another and the former Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment murdered around the same time.
"The connection between all of these deaths may stem from Mr. Wheeler's (John Wheeler III) background. Here's a quote from his bio at the Mitre Corp.
""Mr. Wheeler graduated from West Point in 1966, serving as a staff officer in Vietnam, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Staff before leaving active service in 1971. While on active duty, he authored the first Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual and the analysis supporting the President’s decision that the U.S. will not use biologicals."
"He seemed to be against the use of biological weapons, probably as a result of his service in Vietnam, and it wouldn't be a long stretch for him to have had enough of the bulls$!7 and threatened to spill the beans about the... incident(s).p
"It's also important to note that the Pine Bluff Arsenal (America's Arsenal) is in Arkansas. What do they do there? Quote taken from the home page of the official site:
"Serving the needs of the joint war fighter and the citizen, a full spectrum logistics center providing expertise in specialized munitions and chemical-biological defense products and services." http://www.pba.army.mil/
"A report apparently prepared by the GRU for Prime Minister Putin states that the USA has large quantities of Phosgene Gas stored at Pine Bluff and that this is the result of the deaths of the birds and fish. I'm still looking into the authenticity of this report and it's origin but it wouldn't surprise me in the least that some sort of test went horribly wrong and Mr. Wheeler decided he felt the public should know.
"The company hired to do the clean-up appears to be United States Environmental Services. http://www.texarkanagazette.com/news/WireHeadlines/2011/01/03/thousands-of-blackbirds-fall-from-sky-in-45.php
"I guess they didn't want to take any chances. I'm sure it's all just coincidence though. http://www.usesgroup.com/uses/decontamination.php"
So now let's see whether the American mainstream press has the smarts to look into this.
