      AMERICAN SERVICEMEN USED AS GUINEA PIGS

      JimCast@...

      "Project Shipboard Hazard and Defense:(SHAD), was a program
      started in the early 1960's,to learn the vulnerabilities of US warships, during chemical or biological warfare attacks. Under
      "Project SHAD" were 113 different "Operations" or tests. US Naval
      crews and Marine personnel were sprayed with various biological
      and chemical germ warfare agents, and simulants. Some ships, and
      Marine personnel were sprayed from overflying aircraft, while
      other tests on ships were being sprayed by aircraft carriers,
      which were upwind. While some high ranking personnel may have had knowledge of what was happening, most of the ships crews did not.

      Project "SHAD" was controlled by The US Army Deseret Test Center,
      later to be known as Dugway Proving Grounds, Utah. For over 35
      years, The Department of Defense said, "there was NO Project "SHAD".

      Today the DoD admits that it tested the deadly nerve agent Sarin,
      known as VX, or biological toxins on American Servicemen, but
      said the information was "classified".

      Lately the Dod agreed to declassify all of the 113 "Operations"
      and inform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)of the findings.
      Presently 12 of the 113 have been declassified, although the
      information being released is very limited.

      The Department of Defense is not releasing ALL the information
      needed by the veteran, which would allow him to apply for treatment
      in a VA facility and to file a claim for service connected disability
      compensation.

      Only about 600 veterans of the estimated tens of thousands of
      those exposed to warfare agents have been notified they could be
      suffering from related dangerous health effects, according to VA
      and Pentagon officials.

      A study by the US Department of Veterans Affairs completed in
      September of 2001, but never released to the public or the affected
      veterans, suggests the Veterans, who participated in "Project
      SHAD",may be at increased risk for cerebrovascular diseases and
      respiratory diseases. That they are three (3) times more likely
      to die of resiratory and vascular brain diseases than the general
      population.

      Steve Robinson, executive director of the National Gulf War
      Resources Center, said: "These veterans could be dying at a rate
      three times greater than the general population from diseases
      that could be related to their military service."

      "We have a moral responsibility to set the record straight and
      that seems to be a problem for both the leaders in the Department
      of Defense, and the entrenched bureaucrats of the Department of
      Veterans Affairs."

      Agents and decontaminants used, different one in different tests
      are: Bacillus globiggi(BG),Coxiella burnetii, Pasteurella tularensis,
      Zinc Cadmium Sulfide, Beta-propriolactone, Sarin, VX, Escherichia
      Coli (EC), Serratia Marcescens (SM), Sodium Hydroxide, Peracetic
      acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hypochlorite, "tracer amounts"
      of radioactivity and asbestos,and Methylacetoacetate.

      Senator Bill Nelson(D)of Florida,a member of the Senate Armed
      Services Committee and Rep. Mike Thompson,(D) of California plan
      to introduce legislation in their respective chambers, urging
      the Pentagon to reveal more information about the tests, known
      as "Project SHAD". Eleven other members of Congress have signed
      the request from Thompson. They have attached a provision on to
      Senate bill, S-2514, known as The National Defense Authorization
      Act, to fund the declassification of Project SHAD. The president
      has vowed to veto the bill. The tests involved substances that the
      military believed at the time to be harmless. But evidence now
      shows that some could be harmful.

      The Secretary of veterans affairs, Anthony Principi, urged
      Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield to declassify more of the
      tests "as quickly as possible."
