Tick Tick BOOM! US Congress Votes To Demand Pentagon Reveal Truth On Buggy Bioweapons

The office must also report “whether any ticks or insects used in such experiments were released outside of any laboratory by accident or experiment design” should any evidence be found, the amendment said.

The Department of Defence (DoD) must tell US lawmakers if it had used “weaponised” ticks to conduct biowarfare experiments, a new bill passed in the House of Representatives said.

US lawmakers want to know if the insects were released from the Defence Department’s laboratories after Republican legislators in the House of Representatives voted that DoD Inspector General to investigate if the micro-menaces were used in biological warfare trials over a 25-year period.

The news comes after Roll Call reported that US legislators had added the amendment, introduced by Republican congressman Chris Smith, to the Defence Authorisation Act 2020, demanding the DoD inspector general’s office to “conduct a review of whether the Department of Defence experimented with ticks and other insects regarding use as a biological weapon between the years of 1950 and 1975.”

The amendment was added before the authorisation bill had been passed, but must pass the Senate before US president Donald Trump can sign it into effect.

The latest developments follow the release of the book Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons, which was released earlier this year arguing whether the DoD had conducted research on such experiments. Author Kris Newby also correlates a relationship between the experiment timeline and the outbreak of Lyme disease.

Mr Newby, who is the Congressional Lyme Disease Caucus’s founding co-chairman, said that the US needed “answers” and needed them “now”. Lyme Disease Association president Pat Smith also said that investigating previous experiments may help doctors to fight the illness.
