Beating the Bio-Chemical Bushes
If you like Stephen King, you’ll LOVE this one! It’s been giving me sleepless nights for three decades.
There’s a worldwide uproar concerning the whereabouts of Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Absorption. He used Bio-Chemical Weapons on 250 Kurd villages in 1988 and admitted to having plenty more after Gulf War I. The rest is, as they say, “History.” You’d be terrified from a large scale Bio-Chemical assault here. Remember that unsolved Anthrax Attack right after 9-11?
Let’s say 10,000 or more Americans were to succumb to exposures of Anthrax, Plague, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, Tularemia, Coxiella Burnetii, deadly manmade gasses such as Sarin, VX & Tabun, or hallucinogenic substances like BZ Gas. Some would die horribly from convulsions and others would suffer slow, lingering deaths and beget deformed and disabled children for generations. You’d be aghast at the debilitating cerebro-vascular, respiratory and painful skin ailments running amok in your neighbors. You’d demand immediate reprisals against the perpetrators and expect the best health care and compensation for the families who lost loved ones, just like 9-11, right?
No you wouldn’t.
If you were in the U.S. Congress or White House right now you wouldn’t lift a finger to address this situation. You’d just cover it up and look away. You’d make it impossible for the victims to even apply for Federally funded assistance.
Oh, yes you would! That’s EXACTLY what’s happening in Congress today.
Perhaps you missed the attack because the very same people who funded that activity now hide it from your view? The U.S. Government planned, funded, executed and denied the attacks.
“What Bio-Chemical attacks? When did this happen? You’re joking, right? You just made this up to get my attention!”
From 1962 to 1973, the CIA, DOD, and Smithsonian Institution participated in Project 112/SHAD, during which more than 10,000 U.S. Servicemen became human test rats for the above-mentioned substances and more.
You will confirm that the Americans who suffered these injuries and losses are treated exactly as described, documented by the Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, and Journal of the History of Biology. [Well, at least you’ll get the current “official version”.]
Project 112 was the land-based component of the Bio-Chemical Weapons experiments, exercised in Civilian surroundings in: Maryland, Georgia, Florida, Panama, Puerto Rico, California, Alaska, Hawaii, Utah and Canada. Marine Jets, Army surface ships & tugboats, and at least one Navy submarine executed Project SHAD [Shipboard Hazard & Defense] at sea near Nova Scotia, California, Hawaii, and the Marshall Islands.
Robert McNamara sold this program to JFK & LBJ at the cost of $4 Billion 1962 dollars and 10,000 American lives over 10 years. Every session of Congress since then has funded some form of this activity under the guise of “national security”. How secure do YOU feel right now?
The current VA “SHAD Protocol” is designed to further prevent the Veterans involved from acquiring VA Benefits. The Veteran is required to supply his Medical Records for before, during and after SHAD to establish his “service connection”. That sounds reasonable. Too bad the NSA, CIA, & DOD won’t release the necessary “classified” documents.
House Resolution 5060 & Senate Bill 2704, “The Veterans Right to Know Act of 2002,” were initiated in the 107th Congress to alleviate that situation. They’ve since been shuffled off to various sub-committees with only superficial hearings. H.R.2433, known as “Health Care for Veterans of Project 112/Project SHAD Act of 2003”, was referred to the Senate on 9-11-03, a rather fitting date to address the problems of fallen Americans. It’s curious that vast majority of Congressmen who’ve sponsored these Bills are Democrats, yet Max Baucus, “Montana Veterans’ Senator” has ignored my pleas while Conrad Burns and Denny Rehberg have helped dispel the cloud of Cold War Secrecy and acquire critical data.
I’m just one of at least six Montana SHAD/112 Veterans, four from the Flathead Valley. Furthermore, of the 504,047 Gulf War I Veterans eligible for VA benefits, 149,094 (29%) are now considered disabled by the VA since the start of Gulf War I, many for illnesses due to Bio-Chemical and Depleted Uranium exposures in Iraq. More than 9,600 Gulf War I veterans have died. Please urge your Congressmen to resolve this impasse.
My Sincere Thanks on Behalf of the SHAD/112 Veterans Nationwide,
