Question

"Veterans' Lawsuit against CIA and Army Drug Experimentation Moves Closer to Trial

Sept 4,2011

The CIA failed this week to convince a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit claiming the agency used American soldiers during the Cold War as guinea pigs for drug experiments.

Led by the Vietnam Veterans of America, the plaintiffs are suing the CIA and the U.S. Army for exposing at least 7,800 soldiers to a variety of chemicals and drugs, between 1950 and 1975, as part of Project Paperclip. Military personnel were allegedly given everything from Sarin, a nerve agent used in chemical weapons, to the hallucinogenic LSD.

The purpose of the experiments, according to the plaintiffs, was to learn how to control human behavior, cause confusion, promote weakness and even enhance a person's ability to withstand torture. The soldiers volunteered for the testing, but were not told at the time to what they were being exposed."

I watched something called " Secret America" on Frontline last night. If you think any of these secret organizations are going to get hurt by a lawsuit think again. Nobody knows their budgets or what they do with the money. When someone sues them they just say the information is top secret and that's the end. However, I do like the fact that VVA is suing them. Find a way to see "Secret America" and it will scare you.
