A History Of EVIL US Govt CIA Secret Human Experimentation
A History Of US Secret Human Experimentation
1931 Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, under the auspices of the Rockefeller
Institute for Medical Investigations, infects human subjects with cancer
cells. He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare
facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S.
Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation
exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
1932 The Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins. 200 black men diagnosed with
syphilis are never told of their illness, are denied treatment, and
instead are used as human guinea pigs in order to follow the progression
and symptoms of the disease. They all subsequently die from syphilis,
their families never told that they could have been treated.
1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from
Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service
finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it
had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin
deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within
poverty-striken black populations.
1940 Four hundred prisoners in Chicago are infected with Malaria in
order to study the effects of new and experimental drugs to
combat the disease. Nazi doctors later on trial at Nuremberg cite this
American study to defend their own actions during the Holocaust.
1942 Chemical Warfare Services begins mustard gas experiments on
approximately 4,000 servicemen. The experiments continue until 1945 and
made use of Seventh Day Adventists who chose to become human guinea pigs
rather than serve on active duty.
1943 In response to Japan's full-scale germ warfare program, the U.S.
begins research on biological weapons at Fort Detrick, MD.
1944 U.S. Navy uses human subjects to test gas masks and clothing.
Individuals were locked in a gas chamber and exposed to mustard gas and
1945 Project Paperclip is initiated. The U.S. State Department, Army
intelligence, and the CIA recruit Nazi scientists and offer them
immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top secret
government projects in the United States.
1945 "Program F" is implemented by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission
(AEC). This is the most extensive U.S. study of the health effects of
fluoride, which was the key chemical component in atomic bomb
production. One of the most toxic chemicals known to man, fluoride, it
is found, causes marked adverse effects to the central nervous system
but much of the information is squelched in the name of national
security because of fear that lawsuits would undermine full-scale
production of atomic bombs.
1946 Patients in VA hospitals are used as guinea pigs for medical
experiments. In order to allay suspicions, the order is given to change
the word "experiments" to "investigations" or "observations" whenever
reporting a medical study performed in one of the nation's veteran's
1947 Colonel E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Comission issues
a secret document (Document 07075001, January 8, 1947) stating that the
agency will begin administering intravenous doses of radioactive
substances to human subjects.
1947 The CIA begins its study of LSD as a potential weapon for use by
American intelligence. Human subjects (both civilian and military) are
used with and without their knowledge.
1950 Department of Defense begins plans to detonate nuclear weapons in
desert areas and monitor downwind residents for medical problems and
1950 I n an experiment to determine how susceptible an American city
would be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria
from ships over San Franciso. Monitoring devices are situated throughout
the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many residents become
ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.
1951 Department of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing
bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that
people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.
1953 U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over
Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley
in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how
efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.
1953 Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens of
thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the
airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.
1953 CIA initiates Project MKULTRA. This is an eleven year research
program designed to produce and test drugs and biological agents that
would be used for mind control and behavior modification. Six of the
subprojects involved testing the agents on unwitting human beings.
1955 The CIA, in an experiment to test its ability to infect human
populations with biological agents, releases a bacteria withdrawn from
the Army's biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl.
1955 Army Chemical Corps continues LSD research, studying its potential
use as a chemical incapacitating agent. More than 1,000 Americans
participate in the tests, which continue until 1958.
1956 U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over
Savannah, Ga and Avon Park, Fl. Following each test, Army agents posing
as public health officials test victims for effects.
1958 LSD is tested on 95 volunteers at the Army's Chemical Warfare
Laboratories for its effect on intelligence.
1960 The Army Assistant Chief-of-Staff for Intelligence (ACSI)
authorizes field testing of LSD in Europe and the Far East. Testing of
the european population is code named Project THIRD CHANCE; testing of
the Asian population is code named Project DERBY HAT.
1965 Project CIA and Department of Defense begin Project MKSEARCH, a
program to develop a capability to manipulate human behavior through the
use of mind-altering drugs.
1965 Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia are
subjected to dioxin, the highly toxic chemical component of Agent Orange
used in Viet Nam. The men are later studied for development of cancer,
which indicates that Agent Orange had been a suspected carcinogen all along.
1966 CIA initiates Project MKOFTEN, a program to test the toxicological
effects of certain drugs on humans and animals.
1966 U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the
New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed
when army scientists drop lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto
1967 CIA and Department of Defense implement Project MKNAOMI, successor
to MKULTRA and designed to maintain, stockpile and test biological and
1968 CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by
injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, D.C.
1969 Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requests from
congress $10 million to develop, within 5 to 10 years, a synthetic
biological agent to which no natural immunity exists.
1970 Funding for the synthetic biological agent is obtained under H.R.
15090. The project, under the supervision of the CIA, is carried out by
the Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, the army's top secret
biological weapons facility. Speculation is raised that molecular
biology techniques are used to produce AIDS-like retroviruses.
1970 United States intensifies its development of "ethnic weapons"
(Military Review, Nov., 1970), designed to selectively target and
eliminate specific ethnic groups who are susceptible due to genetic
differences and variations in DNA.
1975 The virus section of Fort Detrick's Center for Biological Warfare
Research is renamed the Fredrick Cancer Research Facilities and placed
under the supervision of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) . It is
here that a special virus cancer program is initiated by the U.S. Navy,
purportedly to develop cancer-causing viruses. It is also here that
retrovirologists isolate a virus to which no immunity exists. It is
later named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia Virus).
1977 Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirm that 239
populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between
1949 and 1969. Some of the areas included San Francisco, Washington,
D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.
1978 Experimental Hepatitis B vaccine trials, conducted by the CDC,
begin in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Ads for research
subjects specifically ask for promiscuous homosexual men.
1981 First cases of AIDS are confirmed in homosexual men in New York,
Los Angeles and San Francisco, triggering speculation that AIDS may have
been introduced via the Hepatitis B vaccine
1985 According to the journal Science (227:173-177), HTLV and VISNA, a
fatal sheep virus, are very similar, indicating a close taxonomic and
1986 According to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
(83:4007-4011), HIV and VISNA are highly similar and share all
structural elements, except for a small segment which is nearly
identical to HTLV. This leads to speculation that HTLV and VISNA may
have been linked to produce a new retrovirus to which no natural
1986 A report to Congress reveals that the U.S. Government's current
generation of biological agents includes: modified viruses, naturally
occurring toxins, and agents that are altered through genetic
engineering to change immunological character and prevent treatment by
all existing vaccines.
1987 Department of Defense admits that, despite a treaty banning
research and development of biological agents, it continues to operate
research facilities at 127 facilities and universities around the nation.
1990 More than 1500 six-month old black and hispanic babies in Los
Angeles are given an "experimental" measles vaccine that had never been
licensed for use in the United States. CDC later admits that parents
were never informed that the vaccine being injected to their children
1994 With a technique called "gene tracking," Dr. Garth Nicolson at the
MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX discovers that many returning
Desert Storm veterans are infected with an altered strain of Mycoplasma
incognitus, a microbe commonly used in the production of biological
weapons. Incorporated into its molecular structure is 40 percent of the
HIV protein coat, indicating that it had been man-made.
1994 Senator John D. Rockefeller issues a report revealing that for at
least 50 years the Department of Defense has used hundreds of thousands
of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure
to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas,
ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used
during the Gulf War .
1995 U.S. Government admits that it had offered Japanese war criminals
and scientists who had performed human medical experiments salaries and
immunity from prosecution in exchange for data on biological warfare
1995 Dr. Garth Nicolson, uncovers evidence that the biological agents
used during the Gulf War had been manufactured in Houston, TX and Boca
Raton, Fl and tested on prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections.
1996 Department of Defense admits that Desert Storm soldiers were
exposed to chemical agents.
1997 Eighty-eight members of Congress sign a letter demanding an
investigation into bioweapons use & Gulf War Syndrome.
