Anuj Dhar and his team run an excellent site : END THE SECRECY.
This article reprinted with permission from author,
A minister of Indira Gandhi's cabinet betrayed India's "war objectives" to the Central Intelligence Agency in December 1971, causing an abrupt end to the Bangladesh war under vicious US armtwisting.
This is the highlight of the book CIA's Eye on South Asia by journalist Anuj Dhar. Published by Delhi-based Manas Publications, which is facing government's ire for coming out with a book on the R&AW, the book compiles declassified CIA records on India and her neighbours. It specifically spotlights what arguably has been India's biggest spy scandal.
In the run up to the 1971 India Pakistan war over what was then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), The New York Times first hinted at the presence of a CIA operative in the Indian government. By December The Washington Post had reported that US President Richard Nixon's South Asia policy was being guided by "reports from a source close to Mrs. Gandhi."
Records and telecons declassified recently - but not properly explained up till now - show that a dramatic turnaround came on December 6 when a CIA operative, whom Dhar pins down as a minister of the Indira Cabinet, leaked out India's "war objectives" to the agency. Prime Minister Gandhi told Union Cabinet that apart from liberating Bangladesh, India intended to take over a strategically important part of the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and go for the total annihilation of Pakistan's armed forces so that Pakistan "never attempts to challenge India in the future."
When he came to know of the CIA report, a furious Nixon blurted out that "this woman [Indira Gandhi] suckered us," thinking that Mrs. Gandhi had promised him that India won't attack East Pakistan - not to speak of targeting West Pakistan and PoK. "But let me tell you, she's going to pay," he told his National Security Advisor Dr Henry Kissinger even as he tried to leak out the CIA report to give her bad press.
The CIA went on assess that fulfillment of India's "war objectives" might lead to "the emergence of centrifugal forces which could shatter West Pakistan into as many as three or four separate countries."
As a direct result of the operative's information, the Nixon administration went on an overdrive to save West Pakistan from a massive Indian assault. Because the President felt that "international morality will be finished - the United Nations will be finished - if you adopt the principle that because a country is democratic and big it can do what the hell it pleases."
Nixon personally threatened the USSR with a "major confrontation" between the superpowers should the Soviets failed to stop the Indians from going into West Pakistan. Kissinger secretly met Chinese Permanent Representative at the UN to apprise him of the CIA operative's report and rub in that what India was planning to do with Pakistan with the Soviet backing could turn out to be a "dress rehearsal" of what they might do to China.
Dhar quotes in the book the official records showing that USSR's First Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Kuznetsov visited Delhi after Nixon's threat and told the "Indians to confine their objectives to East Pakistan" and "not to try and take any part of West Pakistan, including Azad Kashmir" as "Moscow was concerned about the possibility of a great power confrontation over the subcontinent."
Kuznetsov also extracted a guarantee from Prime Minister Gandhi that India will not attack West Pakistan. This decision was promptly conveyed to Nixon. On 16 December 1971 when Nixon was told that India had declared a ceasefire, he exulted: "We have made it… it's the Russians working for us." Kissinger congratulated him for saving West Pakistan - India's main target, as per the operative's report to the CIA.
Dhar repudiates recent assertion by a former Indian Navy chief that showing up of America's biggest nuclear powered carrier into the Bay of Bengal during the war had something to do with the accidental destruction of a US plane in Dhaka during an Indian strafing. "Declassified records make it unambiguously clear that the month-long show of strength by the USS Enterprise and accompanying flotilla was a byproduct of the CIA operative's reports," he writes, reproducing chunks from official records detailing how Nixon ordered a naval task force towards the subcontinent to "scare off" India from attacking West Pakistan.
In subsequent years, former Prime Minister Morarji Desai, and two deputy PMs - Jagjivan Ram and Y B Chavan - were alleged to be the CIA operative active during the 1971 war. However, all such charges lacked any substantiation because there was no confirmation whether or not such an operative ever existed. As such no constructive discussion on the issue ever took off. This has changed now given the unassailable evidence in the form of US records making it clear that the CIA had a "reliable" agent operating out of the Indian cabinet in 1971.
In declassified records the name of the operative has been censored because the CIA Director has "statutory obligations to protect from disclosure [the Agency's] intelligence sources." Dhar writes: "Naming the Indian operative even after so many years will adversely impact the Indo-US relations, and hit the Agency's prospects of recruiting new informants."
However, he suggests that Indian government may have known the identity of the operative. "R&AW under the most capable R. N. Kao could not have missed the reference to the 'source close to Mrs. Gandhi' and must have dug deeper," he writes, adding that in 1972 Mrs. Gandhi herself charged that "she had information that the CIA had become active in India".
More pertinently, Dhar quotes from the declassified record of a 5 October 1972 meeting between Indian Foreign Minister Swaran Singh and US Secretary of State William Rogers. During the meeting, Singh asserted that "CIA has been in contact with people in India in 'abnormal ways.'" and that India had information that "proceedings of Congress Working Committee were known to US officials within two hours of meetings".

1. THE INNOCUOUS HEADLINE: US aircraft wanted to cross over Indian territory on dual call signs.
Indian Express reported: “The military cargo aircraft, hired by the US, that intruded into Indian airspace and was forced to land at the Mumbai airport on Friday was permitted to take off on Saturday. It took off around 10.40 pm. Meanwhile, it has now been established that the aircraft was crossing over Indian territory with dual call signs — one civil and one military — which is why it was intercepted and grounded. The aircraft was travelling from Diego Garcia Island in the Indian Ocean to Kandahar in Afghanistan. The CISF personnel had cordoned off the bay and only three members of the Russian crew were allowed to disembark for questioning. The remaining crew stayed inside the aircraft but were later allowed to use the ‘Refusal’ room at the airport, which is meant for confining passengers who await customs or immigration clearance. Three members were taken to the nearby ATC complex and questioned with the help of a Russian interpreter as only one of them could speak some broken English,” an airport official said. The total number of crew aboard the AN-124 was 18. Sources told Newsline that the aircraft was carrying heavy defence equipment to Afghanistan for American troupes.”
Conclusion 1: Diego Garcia is a US top secret military facility and generally when “contraband” goods have to fly over dangerous skies, militaries hire flights from other countries on deniable missions. Other than what was reported, there surely had to be more than this. And there was.
Indian intelligence agencies reported internally that these aircraft, other than the armaments were carrying waste disposal systems that could hold in excess of 45,000 kg (100,000 pounds) and from which a “technologically sophisticated” network of nano-pipes led to the trailing edges of the wings and horizontal stabilizers for “dispersing” the contents of the waste tanks in an “aerial-type mist”.
“Furious” demands made by the United States to India for the release of the plane led to Indian Defense officials allowing the AN-124 they had captured to be released. (Of course, nearly every politician in India has sold his soul to defense kickbacks and are prone to any nudges from US / Russia / Israel to do their bidding).
So, what was the “agent” that was to be dispersed from the waste tanks in an aerial type mist over populated areas?
It was a deadly strain of A H1N1 virus. It possessed certain transmission vectors that suggest that the new flu strain has been genetically manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon.
Conclusion 2:A US military aircraft was carrying a deadly strain of H1NI virus, genetically mutated for potency in defense labs, when it was force landed in Mumbai. It was on its way to Afghanistan. We cannot at this point say, US wanted to conduct bio-warfare over India or Pakistan or Afghanistan. Just that it was carrying the deadly virus in a plane, that had the capacity to disperse these agents in spray mist over populated areas to infect the population.
(BuA: Did the plane fly over Pune before landing in Mumbai? And in panic, did it try to offload its cargo before it landed in Mumbai, over Pune – this is pure speculation on my part).
A DIVERSION INTO RECENT HISTORY AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE (BW):
"BW occured between 1754 and 1767 when the British infiltrated small pox infested blankets to unsuspecting American Indians during the French and Indian war. Smallpox decimated the Indians."
2. WHO & A H1N1
News from world is trickling in on the biological warfare component of A H1N1. News from Pattaya Daily News and others: “By far the most worrying speculations, however, concern reports that suggest the A-H1N1 virus, may be a biological weapon, which escaped or may have been stolen from a U.S. Army Medical Command test lab, although the WHO and the U.S. government have been quick to deny such claims.”
According to two mainstream media journalists, one in Mexico City and the other in Jakarta, who spoke to WMR on background, they are convinced that the current outbreak of a new strain of swine flu in Mexico and some parts of the United States is the result of the introduction of a human-engineered pathogen that could result in a widespread global pandemic, with potentially catastrophic consequences for domestic and international travel and commerce.
The journalists have been told by top officials of the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) about the grave dangers posed by the new and deadly swine flu strain, known as A-H1N1. This flu has never before seen by scientists.
Past swine flu outbreaks have been spread from pigs to humans, who then passed the flu on to other humans. However, with A-H1N1, there have been no reported infections of pigs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that up to 2 billion people could be infected worldwide if the current outbreak worsens; this especially if the strain mutates.
A recent WHO report maintained the H1N1 flu virus definitely has the potential to unpredictably mutate into a more virulent form, resulting in a pandemic that may circle the globe in at least two or even three waves. In June, it was reported that a new H1N1 virus mutation, a subtype strain named A/Sao Paulo/1454/H1N1, has already been isolated in a 26-year-old patient in Brazil.
Conclusion 3:WHO has stated that this virus will mutate and infect 2 billion people globally. There is open discussion connecting the new strain of the virus with US defense bio-labs.
3. US & Biological weapons. A look at Anthrax and Fort Detrick.
Fort Detrick has biolabs where other than NIH, US has the largest samples of virulent pathogens that the military researches on. USAMRIID is the Army’s top biodefense lab and it is housed here.
On Nov 14th 2001, 5 people were dead and dozens were dick in US due to anthrax poisoning. Dr. Ivins was caught and harassed and he finally committed suicide (or was it murder?? – taking the fall to hide powerful people)
New York Times’s excellent article and which should be read in its entirety to understand the complexity and connivance of defence labs and military states in its conclusion:
A front-page article on Jan. 4 about Bruce E. Ivins, the late Army scientist who the Federal Bureau of Investigation says was responsible for the anthrax letter attacks of 2001, reported that F.B.I. scientists had concluded in 2004 that out of 60 domestic and foreign water samples, only water from near Fort Detrick, Md., where Dr. Ivins worked, had the same chemical signature as the water that had been used to grow the mailed anthrax. That information, provided by a former senior law enforcement official who did not want to be named in the article, suggested that the anthrax could not have come from military and intelligence research programs in Utah and Ohio, as some defenders of Dr. Ivins’s innocence had speculated. The F.B.I. declined to answer questions for that article, which said that the evidence against Dr. Ivins was circumstantial and that many of his colleagues believed the F.B.I.’s conclusion was wrong.
Conclusion 4:Fort Detrick bio-defense labs were responsible for deadly strain of antrax that was used in the US.
4. Fort Detrick and H1N1
Frederick News in April22, 2009 reports that : Army criminal investigators are looking into the possibility that disease samples are missing from biolabs at Fort Detrick. Chad Jones, spokesman for Fort Meade, said CID is investigating the possibility of missing virus samples from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.
In February, USAMRIID halted all its research into these and other diseases, known as "select agents" following the discovery of virus samples that weren't listed in its inventory.
H1N1 virus samples are missing from USAMRIID. However, Washington Post (close to the establishment) has come out with a story that the missing virus samples are: "The virus that causes Venezuelan equine encephalitis is mosquito borne and usually causes a mild flulike illness but can also cause brain inflammation and death. It has potential for use as a biological weapon but is far less lethal than some other agents the lab works with."
Conclusion 5:VIrus samples are missing from USAMRIID lab of Fort Detrick that has potential use as a biological weapon.
5. DEATH of MICROBIOLOGISTS:
RENSE: In the four-month period from Nov. 12 through Feb. 11, 2002 - seven world-class microbiologists in different parts of the world were reported dead. Six died of "unnatural" causes, while the cause of the seventh's death is questionable. Also on Nov. 12, DynCorp, a major government contractor for data processing, military operations and intelligence work, was awarded a $322 million contract to develop, produce and store vaccines for the Department of Defense. DynCorp and Hadron, both defense contractors connected to classified research programs on communicable diseases, have also been linked to a software program known as PROMIS, which may have helped identify and target the victims.
The DNA sequencing work by several of the microbiologists discussed earlier is aimed at developing drugs that will fight pathogens based on the pathogen's genetic profile. The work is also aimed at eventually developing drugs that will work in cooperation with a person's genetic makeup. Theoretically, a drug could be developed for one specific person. That being the case, it's obvious that one could go down the ladder, and a drug could be developed to effectively treat a much broader class of people sharing a genetic marker. The entire process can also be turned around to develop a pathogen that will affect a broad class of people sharing a genetic marker. A broad class of people sharing a genetic marker could be a group such as a race, or people with brown eyes.
Now, statistically, it's possible, even likely, that one or two of these microbiologists legitimately were killed in random accidents. But for so many to die in such a short while exceeds all reasonable bounds of statistics.
There is really only one reason to kill off a bunch of scientists. To silence them from having conscience attack, if millions of population starts dying from the mutated strain of virus that they helped create.
Conclusion 6:Microbiologists who can mutate virus to make them more potent, suddenly started dying in a short span of time, that would defy normal statistical death rates. Also, most of these deaths were classified as “unnatural”.
6. PROFIT MOTIVE from selling Anti – viral drugs and vaccines.
OK, since this is the first thing people will thing and this is true, we will not even go here. Of course, the people who benefit most from a flu scare are pharmaceutical companies that manufacture preventive and curative drugs to tackle the pandemic – in this instance Swine Flu.
CDC recommends the use of oseltamivir or zanamivir for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with swine influenza viruses.
Oseltamivir (brand name Tamiflu ®) is approved to both treat and prevent influenza A and B virus infection in people one year of age and older.
Zanamivir (brand name Relenza ®) is approved to treat influenza A and B virus infection in people 7 years and older and to prevent influenza A and B virus infection in people 5 years and older.
I am not getting into this as this is the basic assumption and yes, the manufacturer will make pots of money. And yes, some important influential people will be stock owners of this drug company. You can do research on this but I will leave it here.
Click on ROCHE.
To those more interested: “"The 1918 flu, called the Spanish flu, was extracted from the corpse of a dead Inuit woman who died of the disease in Brevig Mission, Alaska, a small Inuit village, and it was recombined with or combined with other forms of flu to create this particular A H1N1 that's been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
"Now it's interesting to note that a company called FluGen which is associated with this research at the University of Wisconsin at Madison is now developing a vaccine. I think what we see with Baxter International, FluGen, and other companies developing a vaccine when some of these companies were involved in the research on this particular form of flu, people are a little bit skeptical about the profit motivation here."
There is a far more sinister plan than making money.
7. NSSM 200 – The origins of Population De-control
US National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM) 200 – recently declassified and signed by Henry Kissinger states: (remember report was prepared in1972 – the figures may be dated but the agenda remains.)
NSSM 200 similarly concluded that the United States was threatened by population growth in the former colonial sector. It paid special attention to 13 “key countries” in which the United States had a “special political and strategic interest”: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. It claimed that population growth in those states was especially worrisome, since it would quickly increase their relative political, economic, and military strength. Also will be detrimental to American business interests.
“preoccupation with the growing internal economic and social problems resulting from huge population increases may progressively reduce the ability of the region, especially India, to play an effective regional and world power role.”
Schiller Institute states: “The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.”
Conclusion 7:The US had a declared National Secuirty Policy NSSM 200 that advocated population reduction in several countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh by war, famine and birth control means. It is to be noted famine can be caused by bio-warfare and is a speciality of USAMRIID labs in Fort Detrick.
8. Billionaire’s club and population de-control
Times Online reports: SOME of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population and speed up improvements in health and education.
This is the benign face. The true face is the Anglo Saxon military face that wishes to reduce the global population rise. It is a fact that much of Europe is dying (covered in earlier article) and becoming old – the replacement factor is alarmingly low.
To maintain a steady population, a country has to have a birth rate of 2.10. However, Western Europe has a birth rate of 1.5 – which is 30% below replacement. For a nation obsessed with sex, they are producing less children. Other than a shrinking population, these countries will see shrinking economies and a far higher tax burden on the younger generation. Europe is trying to tackle this issue by importing Muslim labourers. France and Germany today have 10% Muslim population that are growing at a far higher rate than is the “host” Christian population. This affects foreign policy of nations. Germany and France did not support the US invasion of Iraq, simply out of the fear that their Muslim population will implode on them.
Japan which has an even lower birth rate of 1.3 has tackled its issues differently. They stand to lose 60 million of its population in the next 30 years. Japan does not import labour. It simply shuts down schools and businesses. Till date, Japan has closed 2000 schools and the rate of school closure is 300 / year.
For Russia the problem has taken catastrophic proportions. Its birth rate is so low, that by 2050, THE POPULATION OF RUSSIA WILL BE LESS THAN THAT OF YEMEN. Russia sits on 1/6 of the global available land and one cannot defend such a huge territory with such a small population.
9. 900% Growth of Muslims in 100 years
These are very serious problems and in the face of it and contrast this with the Islamic population growth in Pakistan and Bangladesh – it will grow 900% in 100 years.
PAKISTAN: Population in 1947 = 30 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 300 million. A 900% growth over 103 years.
BANGLADESH: Population in 1947 = 32 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 280 million. A 775% growth over 103 years.
INDIA: Population in 1947 = 345 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 1630 million. A mere 373% growth over 103 years.
In case of India, there is a difference of Islamic population growth rate and the Hindu population growth rate. Muslims in India accounted for 9.9% of India’s total population in 1951, 10.8% in 1971, 11.3% in 1981, 12.1% in 1991. (CENSUS FIGURES - ACTUAL FIGURE HIGHER).
Let us look at the scientific data, and try to figure out when India’s muslims become 25% of India’s total population. Will come to why this 25% is important.
Total Indian Population in 1991 = 816 million.
Indian Muslim Population in 1991 = 101 million (12.1% of total).
% Increase in Total Population since 1981 = 23.8 %
Increase in Muslim Population since 1981 = 32.8 %.
We now make a few rough, order-of-magnitude calculations of the numbers involved and their actual consequences. Using t for time, with origin at 1991, T for total Indian population and M for the population of Indian Muslims, the relevant exponential equations are:
T(t)=T(0)exp(0.24t), with T(0)=816mil
M(t)=M(0)exp(0.24t), with M(0)=101mil
Our first calculation is based on the admittedly ad-hoc assumption that India can't support a population more than double the present one. The time for population to double is obtained by solving T(t)=2T(0), and we get t=2.89. Since we are measuring time in decades, this is about 30 years. Now we find that M(2.89)=262mil, while the total will double to 1632mil, and so the Muslim fraction will be only about 16%.
Now let us look at what it would take for the Muslim fraction to reach 25%. The relevant equation is:
Solving for t, we get t=7.81, which is about 80 years i.e. 2070.
The world resources are scarce and something has to give. One cannot have Anglo Saxon population declining and power shifting to Asia plus overwhelming population increasing without something happening.
Biological warfare is one of the easiest and cost effective way to reduce population growth, keeping urban structures and agricultural land fertile (a nuclear attack is more expensive and messier and will reduce farm land productivity of the region).
Ted Turner (of CNN and a billionaire) is famously quoted as saying in 1996 in McAlvany Intelligence Advisor: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal."
Ted Turner used his Southern charm to calm worries that he longed for 95% decline from current population levels during a question and answer session– as the billionaire eugenicist was quoted in Audubon.
“That’s not really true,” Turner said. He instead cited 2 billion as the target– a mere 2/3 reduction of the human population – which he claims would allow ’everyone’ to have a decent standard of living, including a “refrigerator and air conditioner.”
Conclusion 8:Muslim population is growing at the fastest rate while Europe is dying out.
11. India and Swine Flu: 33% will contract Swine Flu
Times of India (10th August 2009) : Admitting that the no government measure could prevent the spread of the H1N1 influenza in India, Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Sunday that around one-third of the Indian population was likely to get infected with the virus over the next two years, in accordance with WHO predictions. But most people would suffer only mild symptoms of the disease, he added.
What he forgot to mention is that 1% of 33% will die. What he forgot to mention is that when local hospitals and private hospitals will be overwhelmed with terror and patients, the civic services will shut down causing more panic and in essence more death due to negligence.
Conclusion 9:33% of Indians likely to contract Swine Flu within the next 2 years.
12. Preventive steps for Indians:
Since the drugs Oseltamivir and Zanamivir are not off the shelf, people should build their immunity with homeopathic treatment.
Times of India (9th August 2009) : "The people can take some of cost-effective and clinically proved homeopathic medicines for swine flu treatment as well as prevention," Batra's Positive Clinic's chairman and managing director, Dr Mukesh Batra, said.
Batra recommends `Oscilococcinium 30' and `Influenzium 200' for swine flu prevention as well as to improve the immune system among the general public towards the flu.
Similarly, treatment for swine-flu was done in Spain during 1917-18 war period with 'Bryonia 30' and proved effective, he said.
Well-known Delhi-based homeopath Mukesh Batra cited the instance of the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 in which more than 50 million people were killed worldwide. He said the mortality rate of people given allopathic treatment was 28.2 percent, while those given homeopathic treatment was 1.05 percent at that time.
"Gelsemium and Bryonia 30 were the two homeopathic remedies that proved to be effective against the H1N1 strain back then. These could be of great use even today," Batra said.
BuA: I recollect that the A H1N1 samples were taken from dead Innuit woman and during the flu epidemic of 1918, when 50 million people were killed. The two homeopathic medicines that helped were Gelsemium and Bryonia 30. I will certainly take this and give it to my family after consulting a leading homeopath. Please do not take medicines without asking a medical practitioner.
Conclusion 10:Homeopathy did reduce the mortality rate in case of Spanish influenza strain in 1918. It may or may not work this time. Since there are no side effects and it is deemed to be a virulent strain of the Spanish flu, it is better to err on the side of caution.
It is also interesting to note that Indian right wing outfit RSS Head K S Sudarshan said in December 2008 : “If there is no other way left. Whenever the demons (Aasuri powers) start dominating this planet, there is no way other than the war. Tell me if there is any other way out. But war should be the last resort. Before that Bharat should consider other options. But according to me, as of now, it is very necessary to defeat the demons (Aasuri powers) and there is no other way.And let me say with confidence that after this destruction, a new world will emerge, which will be very good, free from evil and terrorism.”
De-population whether Anglo Saxons are saying it, whether US Military bio-defense labs are perpetuating it, whether US /UK billionaires are advocating it, or even right wing Hindu organizations like RSS are favouring it – there is a single thread at the end of it all – Lesser population means lesser fight over world’s meager resources and everlasting peace between nations.
And yes, there is too much population in the world for all of us to live in peace.
