A year and a half after a group of veterans sued the CIA, Army and Department of Defense for testing chemicals on troops without consent, the group has asked a judge to penalize the agencies for refusing to cooperate and provide vital records.
According to the veterans, the CIA “exposed thousands of test subjects to hundreds of toxic compounds over the course of many years,” states the most recent court document filed in Vietnam Veterans of America v. Central Intelligence Agency.
The veterans claim they were part of experiments that involved psychochemicals, such as LSD, nerve gas and mind control tactics. The veterans never gave informed consent and have not been compensated for health problems they now suffer, they claim.
