Add her to the list of “distinguished” winners.
Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, today reiterated her claim that the AIDS virus was a deliberately created biological agent.
“Some say that AIDS came from the monkeys, and I doubt that because we have been living with monkeys (since) time immemorial, others say it was a curse from God, but I say it cannot be that.
“Us black people are dying more than any other people in this planet,” Ms Maathai told a press conference in Nairobi a day after winning the prize for her work in human rights and reversing deforestation across Africa.
“It’s true that there are some people who create agents to wipe out other people. If there were no such people, we could have not have invaded Iraq,” she said.
“We invaded Iraq because we believed that Saddam Hussein had made, or was in the process of creating agents of biological warfare,” said Ms Maathai.
“In fact it (the HIV virus) is created by a scientist for biological warfare,” she added.
After they awarded the Peace Prize to lifelong terrorist Yasser Arafat, we knew the whole thing was a sham, but you would think they could at least make sure the recipient was not insane.
