Plum Island is home to a state of the art animal research facility, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center. In the past, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center was involved in the creation of anti-animal biological weapons, and this was supposed to end when President Nixon discontinued the program in 1969. Cold War era speculation suggested that clandestine biological weapons research continued, with those suspicions proving correct. However, in 1994 a group of Russian scientists inspected the facility and found the Plum Island Animal Disease Center free of biological weapons. Additionally, the facility’s separation from the mainland only increased suspicion among st locals about the installation.
Jesse Ventura storms Congress to find out if the government is conducting bio-warfare experiments at the mysterious Plum Island Animal Research Center off the coast of Long Island. The center began as a bio-warfare lab run by former Nazi scientists, and it has been blamed for spreading diseases and viruses throughout the mainland, including African swine flu and Lyme disease.
