VA Must Disclose Documents on CIA, Army and Nazi Scientists Tests Using Veterans as Guinea Pigs

Tuesday, July 31, 2012
As part of an ongoing lawsuit against the U.S. government, a federal judge has ordered the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to release more documents relating to Cold War-era experimentation on American soldiers.
Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley in Oakland, California, ruled the VA must hand over documents pertaining to the use of at least 7,800 service personnel as “human guinea pigs” by the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency.
Beginning in the 1950s, the military and CIA utilized former Nazi scientists to test the effects of 400 types of drugs and chemicals, including mescaline, LSD, amphetamines, mustard gas, and nerve agents, on U.S. soldiers, according to a lawsuit brought by
the Vietnam Veterans of America and individual soldiers.
The experiments, some of which took place at Edgewood Arsenal and Fort Detrick, Maryland, left many veterans with long-term health problems that the VA has refused to cover.
The plaintiffs have won previous motions demanding the VA release records relating to the secret experiments. This time, they sought documents revealing the government’s process for identifying and notifying soldiers who were potentially exposed during the chemical and biological tests.

I think this is just the tip of the iceburg and before very long we will get more revolations about what the CIA was doing back in the Viet Nam War Era. My husband got sent to one of their units and his records are hidden just like those of the edgwood arsenal were abd ft. detrick were. We must keep the pressure on.

After my service in the Republic of Vietnam, I was sent to Savannah at Hunter AAF in June of 1969. We were given a tooth brush and forced to brush our teeth with this red chemical 4 or 5 different times. No record was kept. Nothing shows in the medical records. I am 70% disabled and to the point I can not walk. The government lies and lies. Tonkin is a good example.

I am being treated as a VA guinea-pig now and have been for 5-years. Because I refuse all the drugs, they have turned me over to the torturers. Forced sexual rape, when you resist they use every kind of electromagnetic torture that has been invented. Sleep deprivation most nights, and brain stingers all day and night. The masons started it in Utah and joined with the VA to make it appear legal. Please pray for the 1000's of us TIs. Collin Ott

It is not over, it has not ended! They are still testing on humans, and it's not only soldiers, it is the general population, and I'm not talking about vaccines, I'm talking about direct targeting of certain people for CIA MK ULTRA experimentation.
