found the missing link
I have been searching for months for the site where I saw the fact that DOD had stated they would not be able to identify the Edgewood test vets before FY 2009. I found it today in a GAO report and it says they will not be able to identify any of the veterans used in hazardous substance tests other than SHAD/112 before 2009. Convenient since the Bush administration leaves office in January that year and Rumsfeld and Cheney were involved in authorizing the tests in 1974 and 1975. Especially since they are now claiming that we HAD to go to war with Saddam since he had used chemical weapons on the Kurds, it might prove embarassing to answer questions about their use of enlisted men in chemical weapons and drug tests like LSD and PCP while asking for the world to support them in wanting Saddam executed for the same type of actions, the difference is Saddam was fighting with the Kurds, what did we enlisted men ever do to Cheney and Rumsfeld to make them approve violating the Nuremberg Codes of 1947 in this manner. No wonder things like torture and rendition don't bother them, it appears that it is just business as usual for this bunch, the world prosecuted the last bunch of men who acted like this, the Third Reich wasn't it. I know it is a bad comparison, but they made the record I am just reporting the facts they created. I am just one of their victims, I am 50 years old and totally disabled and I am one of the lucky ones, in FY 2000, 40% of the men in these tests were dead already 2098 of them, and of the survivors 54% are disabled, can you all explain that my Cheney and Mr Rumsfeld, and you are right I am not showing you any respect. In the Army I learned respect was earned and quite frankly you have not earned mine, you are just disgusting, reprehensible old men, that deserve to be on trial and sued for every dime you have, not only did you use us, you have denied our families out veteran benefits for the past 31 plus years, some of the men have been waiting for justice since 1952, how do you plan on making that up to them? Dig them up and say I am sorry to the corpse? http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d04410.pdf pages 18 and 19 show the fact they will not identify the Edgewood test veterans or any other exposed veterans before 2009, five years after this report was written and published. Yet this report shows they found us in FY 2000 and they have known the extent of the harm at least since March 2003, and they still refused to speed up the process to find us, why, questions they didn't want to answer maybe? Better question is why won't the Mainstream media pick this story up? http://www.iom.edu/CMS/3795/4913/5842.aspx DA IG report of 1975 on human experiments http://www.nap.edu/books/030904832X/html/378.html, and the VA Manual published in October 2003 after the IOM report was issued showing the harm caused yet in this manual they never mentioned it why? http://www1.va.gov/vhi/docs/CBR_www.pdf the letters from Lane Evans and Ted Strickland show they tried to help but were ignored by the VA letters that pertain to this issue are 28 April 2005 and the VA reply on October 5 2005 http://veterans.house.gov/democratic/officialcorr/official.htm and last but not least the govt has told me I was only used in equipment tests this pic was found last month on line , it was in a 1992 A&E documentary on Edgewood called "Bad Trip To Edgewood" talk about being shocked to see it, I never knew it existed http://www.thewhyfiles.net/images/edgewood03.jpg, last but not least a 44 minute video called "Bad Trip to Edgewood" video is poor quality but the audio is excellent http://www.propagandamatrix.com/multimedia/badtripto_edgewood.html hey you two time is up answer the questions about why you have let disabled vets and widows be deprived of their veteran benefits?
