In this interview, investigative journalist Whitney Webb, who does both independent work and collaborations with The Last American Vagabond, discusses the little-known details of Operation Warp Speed, a joint operation between U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Defense to produce a fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccine and other therapeutics.
As you may have noticed by now, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other platforms are censoring information relating to COVID-19 in general and vaccine information in particular. Many commentators who touch on these issues have been deplatformed altogether, so information on these crucial topics are getting harder to come by.
“We’re at a point where the line between Silicon Valley and the national security state has become so blurred, you really can’t distinguish where one begins and where the other ends,” Webb says. This in large part helps explain how and why big tech is getting away with such blatant censorship as deplatforming of individuals who discuss issues the mainstream media refuse to touch.
“You can definitely make the argument that it’s state censorship to a degree,” she says. “I think it’s quite telling that a lot of these companies, from the very beginning of their existence, had some sort of funding from U.S. intelligence.”Operation Warp Speed — A Technocratic Chess Piece?
