Congressman Bill Posey speaks on cover-up of vaccine safety research results, destruction of documents and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concerning the 2004 study in the journal Pediatrics purporting to show no association between age of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and onset of autism in children.
Highlight from the video (Thompson quoted by Posey):
“All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.”
