Tell Congress: Investigate the Pentagon's Secret Anti-Vax Operation!

The Pentagon ran a secret anti-vax operation during the height of the pandemic in an attempt to spin lies and propaganda about China. This is psychological warfare that led to countless deaths! Congress must investigate this secret operation and the harm it committed against innocent people and global health to ensure it never happens again. 

Dear Members of United States Congress,

A recent investigation revealed that during the height of the global pandemic, when thousands of people were dying every day, that the Pentagon ran a secret anti-vax operation in the Philippines to undermine China’s influence in the region. This was not a disinformation campaign, but psychological warfare that undoubtedly caused countless deaths. I demand you investigate the Pentagon’s inhumane anti-vax operation and the harm done to people in the Philippines and around the world. 

The Pentagon used hundreds of social media accounts to criticize health supplies China provided to the Philippines, including face masks, testing kits, and the Sinovac vaccine, the only vaccine available to the Filipino public. After initially targeting the Philippines, the operation expanded into Southeast Asia, Central Asia, and across the Middle East. It specifically targeted Muslims, spinning lies about the Sinovac vaccine containing pork gelatin and therefore being forbidden under Islamic Law.

This is not the first time the US has undermined public health and safety to bolster their agenda in other nations. In Pakistan, the CIA used a fake hepatitis vaccine in an attempt to locate Osama bin Laden. The eventual discovery of this project led to mass distrust in vaccines, resulting in a polio spike and many avoidable deaths. 

A senior US military officer involved in the operation said, “We weren’t looking at this from a public health perspective. We were looking at how we could drag China through the mud.” Even though the main target of the operation was the Filipino public– innocent civilians with limited access to medical care during an ongoing global crisis– the Pentagon claims they were only concerned with pushing anti-China propaganda in an absurd bid to counter China’s influence in the region. By November 2021, nearly 50,000 Filipinos had died of COVID-19. 

Another US military officer involved in the program acknowledged this saying, “We didn’t do a good job sharing vaccines with partners. So what was left to us was to throw shade on China’s.” While China was working hard to provide health supplies to badly-affected nations, the US was neglecting the rest of the world and keeping US-made vaccines within the borders. 

In a response to the details of the project being revealed, a spokesperson from the Philippines Department of Health stated that the operation “deserves to be investigated and heard by the appropriate authorities of the involved countries.” The Pentagon needs to be held accountable for the operation and the resulting harm done to affected communities around the world. Lies only lead to death. We demand Congress launch an investigation into the propaganda campaign and ensure it never happens again!

For peace, truth, and global safety,
