US government ran chemical experiments on military veterans

 under operations MKUltra, Bluebird and Artichoke

From NaturalNews

July 26, 2012 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history.

It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the world’s nearly seven billion people.

But a few chapters in our history – slavery, oppression of the Native American tribes, causes of the civil rights movement, and moments of unconstitutionality on the part of our elected leaders – serve as more than simple blemishes on an otherwise admirable record of defending liberty and freedom.

One such stain is the way we’ve treated some of our nation’s military veterans.

The maltreatment is summed up in a recent federal case. In late July, a group of veterans managed to win a court order forcing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hand over a trove of documents detailing the department’s alleged Cold War-era drug experiments on Vietnam vets.

What’s problematic about this case isn’t the decision – the VA owes these veterans any answers they are seeking – but the fact that the case had to be filed at all.

‘Project Paperclip’

According to court documents, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley, in Oakland, Calif., said in her ruling that the documents requested by the veteran-plaintiffs were “squarely relevant” to their claim that the government, through the VA,

did not adequately notify veterans of chemicals they were purposely exposed to during experimentation, and – perhaps more importantly – what effects that exposure might have had on their physical and mental health.

Details of this sad episode in our history were contained in a 2009 class action suit.

Filed by the Vietnam Veterans of America and individual soldiers, the suit charges the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency, with the help of former Nazi scientists, of using at least 7,800 vets as guinea pigs to test the effects of as many as 400 different types of drugs and chemicals.

They included mescaline (psychedelic alkaloid), LSD (psychedelic drug), amphetamines, barbiturates, nerve agents and mustard gas.

The suit also says the government worked to cover up the testing and the nature of its experiments, which began in the 1950s under such exotic code names as “Bluebird,” “Artichoke” and ” MKUltra.”

The government launched “Project Paperclip,” the suit alleges, an all-out effort by the Army and CIA to allegedly recruit former Nazi scientists to help test various psycho-chemicals, as well as develop a new truth serum using the nation’s own vets as test subjects, Courthouse News Service reported.

“Over half of these Nazi recruits had been members of the SS or Nazi Party,” said the class-action suit. “The ‘Paperclip’ name was chosen because so many of the employment applications were clipped to immigration papers.”

According to Colin A. Ross, a psychiatrist and author of “The CIA Doctors,” said he pored over more than 15,000 documents he received from the nation’s premier spy agency detailing the “mind control” operations which he said took place between 1950-1972 “at many leading universities including HarvardYaleCornellJohns Hopkins and Stanford.”

The goal, simply, is mind control

In a report posted on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International’s Web site, Ross said “MKUltra and related programs had several over-lapping purposes.”

“One was to purchase mind control drugs from suppliers. Another was to form relationships with researchers who might later be used as consultants at the TOP SECRET level,” he wrote. “The core purpose of these programs was to learn how to enhance interrogations, erase and insert memories, and create and run Manchurian Candidates.”

Ross said all of that is documented “clearly and explicitly” in the declassified CIA documents he obtained, though he said it was merely “a glimpse into the tip of the iceberg of CIA and military mind control.”

“The experimental subjects were not told the real purpose of the experiments, did not give informed consent, were not afforded outside counsel and received no meaningful follow-up,” he wrote. “As described by the psychiatrists in published papers, experiments with LSD and other hallucinogens, combined with sensory deprivation, electroshock and other interrogation techniques, resulted in psychosis and death among other ‘side effects.’ The purpose of these experiments was to see how easily a person could be put into a psychotic state or controlled.”

In a review of the MKUltra program, which was launched in 1953, Wired.com said its goal was, simply, mind-control.

“1953: The agency launches one of its most dubious covert programs ever, turning unsuspecting humans into guinea pigs for its research into mind-altering drugs,” said the report, which said then-Central Intelligence Agency director Allen Dulles authorized the program.

“Dulles wanted to close the ‘brainwashing gap’ that arose after the United States learned that American prisoners of war in Korea were subjected to mind-control techniques by their captors,” said Wired.com.

Programmable assassins

“Loathe to be outdone by foreign enemies, the CIA sought, through its research, to devise a truth serum to enhance the interrogations of POWs and captured spies.

The agency also wanted to develop techniques and drugs – such as ‘amnesia pills’ – to create CIA superagents (sic) who would be immune to the mind-control efforts of adversaries.”

The creation of so-called Manchurian Candidates – a programmable assassin, essentially – was also a goal of the program.

Besides drug and chemical experimentation, the program included the use of radiological implants, hypnosis and subliminal persuasion, electroshock therapy and isolation techniques, the report said.

In their suit, the vets level similar charges – that the government was attempting to develop and test substances capable of inducing mind control, euphoria, altered personalities, confusion, physical paralysis, mania, illogical thinking and other effects.

Many of the experiments, the suit says, were conducted at Army facilities at Edgewood Arsenal and Ft. Detrick, Md. Some left a number of veterans saddled with debilitating health problems for decades to follow.

Worse, the veterans say the government has neglected to provide follow-up medical care to mitigate the damages.

Some soldiers died from the testing, while others suffered physical and mental ailments including seizures and paranoia, an earlier ruling in the case noted.

In this latest bid for full disclosure, the VVA sought documents from the government that reveal the VA’s processes of identifying and notifying soldiers who may have been exposed to the chemical and biological tests.

No relevant medical purposes

In arguing against releasing the documents, attorneys for the VA said the agency should be exempted from doing so by the deliberative process privilege, which aims to shield the decision-making processes of government agencies.

Judge Corley did not buy the argument, ruling instead that that veterans group and others “have demonstrated a sufficient, substantial need to overcome the qualified deliberative process privilege.”

“The Court agrees that considerable discovery has been provided on this subject; however, having reviewed the thousands of pages of documents submitted for in camera review, the Court notes that these processes are far from clear or consistent, and in fact, seem to have undergone numerous modifications over time,” she wrote.

Corley ordered the VA to release more than 40 documents, which she said were “both relevant and unavailable from other sources given that the documents reflect processes which have evolved over time.”

Writes Ross, “The purpose of mind control experiments is controlling human behavior: making enemy combatants open up during interrogation; protecting secret information by erasing memories; making spies more resistant to interrogation because secret information is held by hidden identities and making people more prone to influence, social control and suggestion.

“The mind control experiments and operational programs violate basic human rights and all codes of medical ethics,” he said.

The government should never use American citizens or others for any sort of experimentation, at least without first getting consent.

Using those who protect and defend us for the same is unspeakable.

HERE’S A TWO PART STORY FOR YOU :

 

PART ONE :  January 23, 1995 – Harry Reid: “I think we should audit the Federal Reserve”

============================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : In this video, one of the Battle Born State of Nevada’s top ten most embarrassing politicians and

Elite minion kiss ass, Harry Reid,

makes this statement on C-SPAN.

Knowing full well that at that point in time there was no way in hell that the Fed would ever be audited,

however, this smoke and mirrors act of his made him look good to all the voters back home ! }~~~Xaniel777

January 23, 1995, C-SPAN

============================================================

PART TWO : July 26, 2012 – Reid was for FED Audit before he was against it

============================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : Truth finally comes out, (COLOR ME SURPRISED).

Harry Reid has NO CHOICE now, he has to come out in the open and push to block the audit in order to protect his Elite Masters.

And in doing so, shows that he is and always has been, a traitor to the State of Nevada, the Nation and the World at large.

As the World financial system has been collapsing as a result of the Actions, (and in some case, the lack of actions),

of the Federal Reserve Board.

( FYI :  This is for those who did not know this already.

The Federal Reserve Board is not a Federal entity of the U.S. Government by-the-way.

It was named that to fool the people into thinking that it was part of the Government,

so no one would ever suspect who and what they truly were/are.

In doing so, they have manage to avert public outcry and audit ( up to now anyway !)

It is in fact, a private financial system owned by private Elite families who believe they own and run the World.

In short, ‘ THEY BELIEVE THEY OWN YOU ‘ !) }~~~Xaniel777

From examiner.com

Reid blocks FED audit

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has said he will block the popular Audit the FED legislation from seeing the light of day in the U.S. Senate.

Reid is taking this position even though eighty percent of the American people want a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve.

Audit the FED legislation passed with bipartisan support in the House of Representatives yesterday by a whopping vote of 327-98. Consequently, some voters are questioning Senator Reid’s motivation.

What people may not know is that Senator Reid was a strong proponent of Audit the FED legislation in the past as this video from 1995 proves.(see video above, as their video does not work in my website for some reason.)~~~Xaniel777

Not only did Senator Reid propose and sponsor such legislation, but he also made impassioned speeches in the well of the Senate championing the idea. (Of course always with a wink,wink, nod, nod, to his Masters, back when he thought an audit was impossible to achieve!)~~~Xaniel777

Reid correctly pointed out that the FED improperly manipulates interest rates and that hurts the American people.

He also pointed out that the FED operates under a veil of secrecy, which is a process that should end.

He called the FED system the largest unfounded mandate we have in America today.

So, why is Senator Reid blocking the same bi-partisan legislation today?

Undoubtedly he will offer a series of excuses about the content of the proposed bills today being different than in the past, or do some other such political maneuvering. (But the truth is, that Reid is the Elite’s man and always has been !)~~~Xaniel777

However, it seems more likely that Senator Reid could be responding to political pressure from the banking, business, government, and media interests that control the United States. (Didn’t I just say that??)~~~Xaniel777

Will Senator Reid have the courage to buck those interests on behalf of the American people? Time will tell.

( TIME WILL TELL??…Time has already told ! Reid is a TRAITOR and he doesn’t give a damn about Nevada, Americans or the World. He cares only for his MASTERS !)~~~Xaniel777

Almost entire Congress refuses to release tax returns

=====================================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : Well of course their not going to release their tax return statements.

Doing that would only serve to open the eye’s of the public on just how ‘ Bought and Paid For By The Special Interests ‘, these people truly are.

Let’s get serious for a minute shall we,

” You didn’t really think that the U.S. Government was there to work for the States which represent ‘ We The People ‘, did you “ ?

NO, NO, NO, that’s not how U.S. Government works at all.

U.S. Government is a ‘ Let’s Get Rich Quick Industry ‘,

where club members, (your State Representatives, Congressmen/women, Senators one and all),

come to Washington D.C. to compete for Legalized Bribery Money, (from here on we’ll use the Scientific term of ‘ Lobby Money ‘).

Amazingly, many Politicians who go to Washington, supposedly on our behalf and with barely a ‘ pot-to-piss-in ‘, usually do so well,

 that by the time they retire,  not only have they built up an overwhelming amount of Bribery…err…Lobby Money,

but they usually have several offers of employment with any one of the Corporations/Foreign Countries that they voted on behalf of the most. 

And, as per the rules, none of it on behalf of ‘ We The People ‘!

 Because to do so, will make those jobs offers slump away very quickly ! 

Those who throw that ‘ Lobby Money ‘,  like a bone to a dog, come in several forms.  

But usually line up under one of three categories, Corporation, Military Industrial, and Israel.

Of the three, Israel has pretty much stacked the deck.

Let me explain :  The Government, in all it’s laughable wisdom, let’s our own Countries Infrastructure and people’s needs collaspe,

in favor of giving Israel Three to Six Billion dollars in money and military hardware EVERY year.

Israel takes part of that interest free, ‘ don’t-have-to-pay-back-ever ‘, money and uses it to Bribe…err…Lobby our Politicians into seeing everything Zionist Israel’s way.

This is why you see so many Politicians on all levels, whoring themselves to the Zionist Low-Life State of Israel.

Great Stacked Deck…huh !!

Israel pay’s our Politicians with some of the same money the Politicians gave Israel to begin with.

And it’s all paid for by you the taxpayer.

You, who aren’t being represented by those you trusted, voted for and sent to Washington to begin with.

Now do you understand how the U.S. Government works?

Now do you understand why Congress refuses to release tax returns ? 

Good, I knew that you would ! }~~~Xaniel777

Members of Congress are demanding that U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney give full disclosure of all of his tax returns, but most are refusing to publicize their own.

The presumptive presidential nominee has disclosed his 2010 tax return and 2011 tax return estimate, but refuses to publicize any more.

His refusal is generating critical responses from Congressional members, who claim his secrecy makes him unfit to run for president.

However most members of Congress do not think that this same level of transparency should apply to them.

While senators and representatives are required to publicize their sources of income, they are not required to disclose their tax returns, which contain additional financial data like spousal income.

McClatchy has asked all 535 members of Congress for full disclosure of their tax returns, but only 17 have complied.

Among those who refused are Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Harry Reid – both of which have heavily criticized Romney for his limited transparency.

“He could not even become a Cabinet member for that lack of disclosure, and now with the lack of disclosure, he wants to be president of the United States,” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said.

Reid said Romney’s refusal to publicize more of his financial information makes him unfit to be a “dogcatcher” – a metaphor for the lowest possible elected office.

But Pelosi’s aides refused to disclose the representative’s own tax returns, saying she has already disclosed all that Congress requires.

“The leader has filed a complete financial disclosure report as required by law that includes financial holdings, transactions and other personal information,”a Pelosi spokesman told McClatchy.“There has been no question about where Leader Pelosi and Democrats stand on tax policy.”

But similarly, there is no lawful requirement for presidential candidates to publicly release their tax returns, and it remains a matter of choice for the contenders.

Romney claims that full disclosure of his finances would distract from the issues he finds important.

“In the political environment that exists today, the opposition research of the Obama campaign is looking for anything they can use to distract from the failure of the president to reignite our economy,” Romney told the National Review Online.“I’m simply not enthusiastic about giving them hundreds or thousands of more pages to pick through, distort and lie about.”

While some members of Congress find Romney’s full disclosure necessary to better understand his financial background, they don’t consider themselves responsible for the same.

Tax return documents indicate spousal incomes, and several members of Congress have married rich.

Among the top of the list are Rep. Michael McCaul, Sen. John Kerry and Pelosi’s husband, who heads a venture capital and real estate firm.

The representative’s spousal income thus remains publicly unknown.

Most lawmakers who did share their tax returns with McClatchy received significant deductions for interest on personal and investment real estate – information that taxpayers may be interested in, since the tax code is expected to change in the next few years.

Reporters are also interested in Congressional members’ tax returns to see how changes in tax laws would affect their income tax rates and capital gains taxes, dividends and deductions.

But most lawmakers refused full disclosure of their own tax returns, while continuing to demand that Romney release his.

Although most members of Congress refused to publicize their own tax returns, the DISCLOSE Act is bringing the transparency debate into the spotlight.

On Tuesday, Senate Republicans blocked the Democratic legislation, which would require certain tax-exempt groups to disclose the names of some of their highest donors.

While Congress is battling over greater transparency in presidential campaigns, hypocrisy has found its way into the government, with most members opposed to having the same rules apply to them.

 Geithner Admits Banks And AIG Were Bailed Out At Rigged Libor Rates,Costing Taxpayers Billions

 

From The Daily Bail

(VIDEO) : http://bcove.me/pgg3q89p

One-minute clip from yesterday of Geithner being questioned by Rep. Hensarling regarding the Fed’s and Treasury’s decision to use an artificially low Libor as the interest rate on hundreds of billions in crisis loans to AIG and other bailed-out banks.

Mark Gongloff – HuffPo

Timothy Geithner claimed on Wednesday that the government had no choice during the financial crisis but to lend to banks and AIG using an interest rate, Libor, that everybody knew was flawed.

Call it a back-door bailout: By using an artificially low Libor, the government saved the banks and AIG millions, maybe billions — and cost the taxpayers the same amount.

The use of Libor in the bailouts also rubber-stamped that hopelessly manipulated interest rate as a market measure, raising still more questions about just how worried Geithner and other regulators really were about it.

In a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Geithner was asked why Treasury and the Fed used the London Interbank Offered Rate as a basis for loans to insurance giant American International Group and to U.S. banks under the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility — even though Geithner and other regulators had long suspected that Libor was artificially low, as Geithner testified.

“We were in the position of investors around the world,” Geithner shrugged. “You have to choose a rate, and we did what everybody did — use the best rate available at the time.”

Geithner repeated his claim that he warned other U.S. and British regulators in the spring of 2008 about possible manipulation of the key interest rate and recommended changes to the way the rate was set.

But he also said that, months later, when it came time to set bailout terms for the Too Big To Fail Set, the government just had no other choice but to use Libor.

Sure, that’s one way to look at it.

 Another, less charitable way to look at it is that the Fed was fully aware that Libor was being manipulated lower, and was fine charging an artificially low rate to lend money to banks and to AIG, in what amounted to yet another kind of bailout.  

Why make life harder for them, right? They had enough problems dealing with the crisis they had created.

Raising red flags about Libor might have only made the crisis worse, making it harder for banks to borrow money.

But in the process, the government left untold mountains of cash on the table for U.S. taxpayers.

Even if Libor was only manipulated a tiny bit lower, these small breaks add up.

In fact, if you wanted to be cynical about it, you could say this is yet another example of the Treasury Department and the Fed once again putting the needs of banks ahead of all else, including such niceties as “faith in the market” and “taxpayers.”

I wrote a story for the Wall Street Journal back in 2009 estimating that banks may have saved $24 billion by borrowing at unusually low rates in another crisis-era government lending program, the Term Liquidity Guarantee Program — loans that were frequently based on Libor.

There’s still a lot of number crunching to be done in the weeks ahead, but it would not be surprising if TALF banks and AIG saved similar amounts by borrowing from the government at an artificially low Libor rate.
