"China is a deadly dangerous menace," said author Gordon Thomas, the guest on Tuesday's show. After being present at the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989, Thomas began to believe that China was becoming an ever increasing threat to the U.S. "China at this stage is prepared to operate through surrogates, using countries like North Korea to wreak fear and terror," he explained.
Referencing a CIA document which warned that China may have an arsenal of nuclear weapons targeted at the US by 2015, Thomas said a confrontation with them may be inevitable, but certainly wouldn't occur until after the Olympics in Beijing in 2008. He mentioned the possibility of "thought control" as a serious issue, whereby China could be trying to create programmed assassins. "Medicine" given to a suicide bomber in the Middle East was reported to be made in China, Thomas said.
He also commented on the mysterious deaths of a group of microbiologists around the world, now numbering around 15. Thomas suggested that China made an offer for these scientists to come and work for them, and when they refused they were taken out. In an article titled Dead Scientists, Thomas outlines some of the unusual circumstances in this situation.
One of the areas that Gordon Thomas touches on in his book Seeds of Fire, was the arrest and subsequent release of Dr. Wen Ho Lee. A Chinese scientist working at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lee was accused of spying for China, and passing crucial data to them about the US's nuclear warhead designs. When charges against Lee were dropped, Thomas writes that there were rumors it was because the US government didn't want him spilling the beans about a super secret project he was involved in. "Lee, ran the whispers, worked on what was known as Project HP—Holographic Portal," Thomas writes.
Thomas reported that according to Dr. Richard Boylan, a scientist with NSA contacts, Lee was working with a kind of ET device that could allow for travel through the space-time continuum. In an Internet published article, Boylan writes that Lee may have created a "Get Out of Jail Free" card for himself, by using a "self-protective proviso" that if anything should happen him, Lee's associates would share the contents of a safety deposit box with the press.
