Appearing on the Thom Hart radio show today, a Veterans Administration critic, Larry Scott, characterized the mass grave story covered by Alex Jones, Infowars, and Prison Planet as “rumor-mongering.”
According to Scott, the expansion of graves around the county is part of a standard upgrade intended to accommodate a record number of veteran deaths. Larry Scott puts the number at an astounding 700,000 per year.
Scott’s website, VA Watchdog, has posted the following:
RUMOR CONTROL — I’ve been getting lots of email with photos that purport to show “mass graves for U.S. citizens” being dug and crypts being installed at the VA’s Phoenix cemetery (and other locations). This disinformation is coming from websites that pander to the paranoids and offer the most outrageous conspiracy theories as fact. Disregard this nonsense! Here is what is happening… http://tinyurl.com/cydpom Just planned cemetery upgrades. 4/1/09
On March 25, Infowars posted a story by Shepard Ambellas on a large number of new graves installed at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona at Phoenix.
Ambellas’ report was followed on March 26 byvideo footage of the gave site posted on YouTube.
On March 28, an Infowars reader in Texas sent photos of a mass grave site under construction at the Houston National Cemetery. “It has yet to be established what these grave sites are for, although an official contacted at the Phoenix cemetery told Jason Douglass, producer of Jason Bermas’ Infowarrior radio show (and the Alex Jones Show), that the practice of digging multiple graves with large crypts is commonplace,” I reported for Infowars.
The mass grave stories appeared after suspicions were aroused last July when it was reported that hundreds of thousands of plastic coffins liners were discovered near near Madison, Georgia. “Georgia is a prime base to conduct military operations and coordination. It is also the home of the CDC, the Center for Disease Control,” a post on the Neithercorp Forum explained. Additional research revealed that the plastic grave liners are manufactured by PolyGuard Vaults.
“I did some more research to determine if the government did business with PolyGuard Vaults. Indeed, the U.S. Veterans Administration has been buying Burial Vaults from PolyGuard Vaults for years,” writes the Cryptogon blog.
[efoods]On March 5, 2009, the GovernmentBids website posted a bid for an unspecified number of grave liners.
Infowars noted at the time: “If you think all of this is simply conspiracy mongering, consider the fact our government indeed repeatedly plans for widespread ‘bio-terrorist’ attacks, most notably Operation Dark Winter, staged nearly three months before the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent anthrax attacks beginning on September 18, 2001. As well, consider the national-level domestic and international TOPOFF exercises, primarily involving biological and chemical attacks.”
Prior to the mass grave stories last month, D. H. Williams of the Daily Newscaster reported on the revelations of an Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago.
Williams’ source reported discussions between FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, and Indiana officials on a “Hazard Mitigation Plan” that included “where mass graves could be placed in the county” in addition to plans for mass vaccinations and “hardening” of police and fire stations. Indiana officials were “told if industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds,” according to Williams.
The Jones Report has posted a story today with photographs of plastic coffin liners awaiting pickup at an undisclosed location in Alabama. “This unsettling site may well correspond with concerned reports of mass graves being prepared at National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Houston National Cemetery as well as numerous other reports,” reports Aaron Dykes.
