2006 02:14:43 PM License This work is in the public domain BAD BLOOD Canadian media, including the Calgary Sun and Ottawa Citizen, are
reporting that tainted blood from Arkansas prisons made its way to a Montreal blood broker in the 1980s when Bill Clinton was governor. The Royal
Canadian Mounted Police are investigating. At the time, American sources were not accepting prisoners' blood because of possible HIV contamination.
OTTAWA CITIZEN WASHINGTON POST ADMITS PRISON-AIDS TIE ... ONE OF THE BEST kept secrets of the American elite has been that
its prison policies have not been tough love but, at best, massive negligent manslaughter. Not only has the war on drugs killed more young black
American men on the streets than were killed in Vietnam, but the prison system is a primary incubator for AIDS. This has been ignored and denied by
the mainstream media so for the Post to headline "Answer to AIDS Mystery Found Behind Bars" is a bit of a step forward. Writes Richard Morin
misleadingly, "It is one of the most puzzling mysteries of the AIDS epidemic: Why did blacks, in little more than a dozen years, become nine times as
likely as whites to contract a disease once associated almost exclusively with gay white men? Two researchers say they found the answer in an unlikely
place: prison." In fact, there's little puzzling about it. We have repeatedly pointed to the tie between AIDS and prisons not only because of the amount
of unprotected sex behind bars but because prisons have served as an incubator in black neighborhoods after AIDS-infected prisoners are released and

resume heterosexual sex. Here is just one example of the damage that has occurred, again something the archaic media largely failed to report:
PROGRESSIVE REVIEW, 1999 - In the mid-1980s, as contaminated blood flowed from Arkansas inmates to other countries, then-Governor W.J .
Clinton sat on his hands despite evidence of severe mismanagement in his prison system and its medical operations. . . Some of the killer blood ended
up in Canada where it contributed to the deaths of an unknown number of blood and plasma recipients. An estimated 2,000 Canadian recipients of
blood and related products got the AIDS virus between 1980 and 1985. At least 60,000 Canadians were infected with the hepatitis C virus between
1980 and 1990. Arkansas was one of the few sources of bad blood during this period. . . Other Arkansas plasma was sent to Switzerland, Spain, J apan,
and Italy. In a case with strong echoes of the Arkansas scandal, a former premier of France and two of his cabinet colleagues are currently on trial
stemming from the wrongful handling of blood supplies. Some of the blood in the French controversy may have come from Arkansas. A 1992
Newsday report on the French scandal noted that three persons had been convicted for their role in distributing blood they knew was contaminated:
"Throughout the 1980s and later, blood was taken from prison donors for use in blood banks despite a series of directives warning against such a
practice. According to the report, donations from prisoners accounted for 25 percent of all the contaminated blood products in France. Blood from
prisons was 69 times more contaminated that that of the general population of donors." The Arkansas blood program was also grossly mishandled by
the Food and Drug Administration. And the scandal provides yet another insight into how the American media misled the public about Clinton during
the 1992 campaign. The media ignored a major Clinton scandal despite, for example, 80 articles about it in the Arkansas Democrat in just one four-
month period of the mid-80s."
Encyclopedia of Arkansas "In 1985, the Arkansas Board of Corrections hired the Institute for Law and Policy Planning (ILPP) in Berkeley, California,
to conduct an independent investigation into HMAs practices. At the same time, Governor Bill Clinton ordered the state police to conduct a similar
investigation. The institute discovered instances in which HMA had violated its state contract in forty areas, including poor health assessment and
recordkeeping and the hiring of unlicensed, uncertified, and unqualified staff. In contrast, the state police investigation found only that a few HMA
employees had been running a small-time gambling operation. Clinton urged a swift end to the investigation. ADC director Art Lockhart, about whom
many allegations of impropriety had been raised, was not punished; being an employee of the ADC board, he could not be fired by Clinton, and he had
a protector in the powerful state Senator Knox Nelson of Pine Bluff."
NoHillaryClinton "In the early 1980s, while Clinton was serving as governor of Arkansas, his administration awarded a contract to Health Management
Associates to provide medical care to the states prisoners. The president of the company was a long-time friend and political ally of Clinton and was
later appointed by him to the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission. Later, he was among the senior members of Clintons 1990 gubernatorial
re-election team. ... As part of the deal HMA struck with Arkansas, in addition to treating the prisoners, the company collected their blood and sold it.
Because of the exploding AIDS crisis, U.S. regulations didnt permit the sale of prisoners blood within the country. But HMA found a willing buyer in
Montreal, which brokered a deal with Connaught, a Toronto blood-fractionator, which didnt know the source of the supplies..."
