Loam, with all due respect my friend I am more shocked that you are shocked by this
Our Government has a history of doing this to not only people in other Countries, but right here at home as well.
Where to start? The list is extensive...
There is the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
STD test in
In the 1840's J Marion Sims
performed surgical experiments on female slaves, often resulting in
From 1913 to 1951 (notice the length of time) we had
Dr. Leo Stanley
test on Prisoners in San Quentin Prison. Including test involving removing testicles from dead people and placing them in living prisoners, removing
testicles from Rams, Boars, and goats and placing them in prisoners, various eugenics experiments all because he believed he could rejuvenate old
people, control crime and prevent the "unfit" from reproducing.
In 1941 one Dr. William C. Black
infected a 12 month old baby with herpes, (you can find many
other examples on this link as well)
From 1950 to 1969 the US Navy tested Serratia marcescens
on US citizens after spraying
over San Francisco California. The legal case was finally settled in the 1980's when a judge ruled in favor of the US Government (big shock).
From the 1950's to the 1970's mentally disabled children at
Willowbrook State School
were infected with hepatitis for the purpose of creating a vaccine. In many cases,
these handicapped children were fed an extract made from the feces of other infected people.
Through out the 40's and 50's the Government conducted numerous test of radioactive materials on the population.
In the 60's through the 70's Dr. Eugene Saenger
funded by the Department of Defense and the
Defense Atomic Support Agency conducted numerous whole body radiation experiments on poor black cancer patients.
Although I can not prove it, I suspect this case was also a Government funded experiment on the people of Washington State. This case was featured on
an episode of Unsolved Mysteries
. When a slime fell from the sky over a town in Washington
State causing everyone who lived there to get sick and a few people died.
So why anyone would be shocked to see even more testing news come out now simply amazes me. Our Government has been doing this through out it's
history with little to no consequence, and if we the people allow them to get away with this time and time again, why would they stop on their own?
