Testing on unwitting civilians
Medical experiments were conducted on a large scale on civilians who had not consented to participate. Often, these experiments took place in urban
areas in order to test dispersion methods. Questions were raised about detrimental health effects after experiments in San Francisco, California, were
followed by a spike in hospital visits; however, in 1977 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determined that there was no association
between the testing and the occurrence of pneumonia or influenza. The San Francisco test involved a U.S. Navy ship that sprayed Serratia
marcescens from the bay; it traveled more than 30 miles. One dispersion test involved laboratory personnel disguised as passengers spraying
harmless bacteria in Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Scientists tested biological pathogens, including Bacillus globigii, which were thought to be harmless, at public places such as subways. A light bulb
containing Bacillus globigii was dropped on New York City's subway system; the result was strong enough to affect people prone to illness (also known
as Subway Experiment). Based on the circulation measurements, thousands of people would have been killed if a dangerous microbe was released in
the same manner.

BIOLOGICAL TESTS BY THE GOVERNMENT ON AMERICAN CITIES
During the 1950s and 1960s, the Army simulated biological attacks in or over US cities, including Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. In one
of the biggest tests, the Army sprayed 'simulant' bacteria into the air from a boat off of San Francisco. They used Serrata marcescens, an organism
that is easy to detect. Several civilians became sick; one died. Two important things emerged from these experiments. One was that nearly everyone
downwind acquired the bacteria. Secondly, it was learned later that it causes a variety of GI disorders. Even 'innocent' microorganisms can have
In 1966, another bacterial agent was intentionally released into the New York subway by the CIA. Quickly, the entire system was infected by the piston
action of trains moving air about the subway system. Elsewhere, the British had conducted a similar test with identical results in London two years
earlier. The ease of spreading agents this way was graphically illustrated by Ted Koppel, ABC News, the week of October 4, 1999 (I saw only portions
of the program).
1966 July 7-10, The virus Bacillus subtilis was released throughout the New York subway system, conducted by the U.S. Army's Special Operations
Division. Due to the vast number of people exposed it would virtually impossible to identify, let alone prove, and specific health problems resulting
directly from this test.

Key Dates of experiments on an unwitting US public
1950: US Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria over San Francisco
1952-53: US military release clouds of “harmless” gases over six US and Canadian cities.
1955: Tampa Bay, Florida, undergoes a bout of CIA inspired “Whooping Cough.”
Twelve deaths result.

1968-69: CIA experiments with injecting poison into the water supply of a US
government building in Washington DC.
1969-to date: Experiments and developments of CBW agents continue in secrecy.
