Heard Of Project 112 Or Project Shad...?

Every now and then I find stories about some of the test that were performed on our citizens, sometimes without consent. I would have never believed that the PTB here in our country would do this.

It's one thing to do test on persons that volunteer or know what the side effects might be, but to do so on folks without telling them the whole truth about the test is just wrong!

Project 112 And Project SHAD

In 2002, the US military started reaching out to veterans who may have been involved in Project 112 or Project SHAD. Both operations involved exposing personnel to substances chosen to act as stand-ins for biological weapons, allowing researchers to see how they spread. Project 112 was done at the Deseret Test Center in Utah in a series of tests from 1962–73, and Project SHAD (Shipboard Hazard and Defense) was done aboard warships in waters around the world.

The details of the project might have remained under wraps for much longer than they did if it wasn’t for the Department of Veteran Affairs requesting an investigation into the operations, as well as information on whether or not service members’ health may have been compromised. Nearly 6,000 people, both military personnel and Department of Defense civilian staff, were exposed to the tests, with and without knowledge. When information about the tests was released, it was thought that the agents released were harmless. However, it was also stressed that veterans with concerns should come forward and that it was acceptable to reveal information about dates, places, and possible side effects with health care providers.
There’s a long list of biological agents that the test subjects were exposed to, including Coxiella burnetii (Q fever) and staphylococcal enterotoxin B (which causes food poisoning). They also used some pretty horrific nerve toxins, including sarin (now classified as a weapon of mass destruction) and soman (a clear, colorless liquid that can cause death in minutes). Both can be fatal if only the tiniest amount gets on the skin.

I can't help but wonder just how many other things our people have been exposed to without their knowledge. Any is way too much, in my opinion! If it wasn't for the folks over at Listverse, I would have never heard of this practice

Coffee out on the patio this morning. The sun is looking nice so far today!

No one should trust the government - that's why we are in so much trouble now. I'll bring the Dunkins!

This is a despicable practice that should be exposed right now. How can anyone do this to another human being and then whine about animal cruelty? Wait a minute we sell aborted baby body parts and that is okay because a fetus isn't a human being. Something is very wrong with the way people are thinking today. Government run amuck!! Save me chocolate donut. a belated Happy Birthday to your Mom.

Hey Phyllis...
Sure makes it hard to trust them when stories like this come to light. I'm surprised that the media never seems to make a big deal out of things like this.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Linda...
The evil that some folks can come up with is amazing to me. When we find out just how many programs such as this are still done by our leaders, it's scary!
Thanks for coming over today!!
