AMERICAN SERVICEMEN USED AS GUINEA PIGS

JimCast@infowars.net

"Project Shipboard Hazard and Defense":(SHAD), was a program started in the early 1960's,to learn the vulnerabilities of US warships, during chemical or biological warfare attacks. Under "Project SHAD" were 113 different "Operations" or tests. US Naval crews and Marine personnel were sprayed with various biological
and chemical germ warfare agents, and simulants. Some ships, and Marine personnel were sprayed from overflying aircraft, while other tests on ships were being sprayed by aircraft carriers, which were upwind. While some high ranking personnel may have had knowledge of what was happening, most of the ships crews did not.

Project "SHAD" was controlled by The US Army Deseret Test Center, later to be known as Dugway Proving Grounds, Utah. For over 35 years, The Department of Defense said, "there was NO Project "SHAD".

Today the DoD admits that it tested the deadly nerve agent Sarin, known as VX, or biological toxins on American Servicemen, but said the information was "classified".

Lately the Dod agreed to declassify all of the 113 "Operations" and inform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)of the findings. Presently 12 of the 113 have been declassified, although the information being released is very limited.

The Department of Defense is not releasing ALL the information needed by the veteran, which would allow him to apply for treatment in a VA facility and to file a claim for service connected disability compensation.

Only about 600 veterans of the estimated tens of thousands of those exposed to warfare agents have been notified they could be suffering from related dangerous health effects, according to VA and Pentagon officials.

A study by the US Department of Veterans Affairs completed in September of 2001, but never released to the public or the affected veterans, suggests the Veterans, who participated in "Project SHAD",may be at increased risk for cerebrovascular diseases and respiratory diseases. That they are three (3) times more likely to die of resiratory and vascular brain diseases than the general population.

Steve Robinson, executive director of the National Gulf War Resources Center, said: "These veterans could be dying at a rate three times greater than the general population from diseases that could be related to their military service."

"We have a moral responsibility to set the record straight and that seems to be a problem for both the leaders in the Department of Defense, and the entrenched bureaucrats of the Department of Veterans Affairs."

Agents and decontaminants used, different one in different tests are: Bacillus globiggi(BG),Coxiella burnetii, Pasteurella tularensis, Zinc Cadmium Sulfide, Beta-propriolactone, Sarin, VX, Escherichia Coli (EC), Serratia Marcescens (SM), Sodium Hydroxide, Peracetic acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hypochlorite, "tracer amounts" of radioactivity and asbestos,and Methylacetoacetate.

Senator Bill Nelson(D)of Florida,a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Rep. Mike Thompson,(D) of California plan to introduce legislation in their respective chambers, urging the Pentagon to reveal more information about the tests, known as "Project SHAD". Eleven other members of Congress have signed the request from Thompson. They have attached a provision on to Senate bill, S-2514, known as The National Defense Authorization Act, to fund the declassification of Project SHAD. The president has vowed to veto the bill. The tests involved substances that the military believed at the time to be harmless. But evidence now
shows that some could be harmful.

The Secretary of veterans affairs, Anthony Principi, urged Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield to declassify more of the tests "as quickly as possible."
