Why is it that federal government terrorism always gets brushed aside in the media? Horrifically, the GAO found that the DOD and other agencies were involved with terrorism against Americans from 1940-1970s. I do not recall the media ever speaking of this back in the 90s.
The report was done in 1994, so I am quite sure a lot more tyranny has taken place since then. The excuse used by these murders is ‘National Security’.
The number of people impacted by these actions will never be known.
During World War II and the Cold War era, DOD and other national security agencies conducted or sponsored extensive radiological, chemical, and biological research programs. Precise information on the number of tests, experiments, and participants is not available, and the exact numbers may never be known. However, we have identified hundreds of radiological, chemical, and biological tests and experiments in which hundreds of thousands of people were used as test subjects. These tests and experiments often involved hazardous substances such as radiation, blister and nerve agents, biological agents, and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). In some cases, basic safeguards to protect people were either not in place or not followed. For example, some tests and experiments were conducted in secret; others involved the use of people without their knowledge or consent or their full knowledge of the risks involved.
The effects of the tests and experiments are often difficult to determine. Although some participants suffered immediate acute injuries, and some died, in other cases adverse health problems were not discovered until many years later—often 20 to 30 years longer.

How can Americans just let this happen and not demand justice? No human being should ever be treated like a test subject, much less be used by their own government who is supposed to protect them.
The real question remains. What are they doing now?
