United Snakes Of Amerikkka has a long history of experimentation, on
unwitting human subjects, which goes back to the beginning of this
century. Both private firms and the military have used unknowing human
populations to test various theories. However, the extent to which human
experimentation has been a part of the U.S. Biological Weapons programs
will probably never be known. The following examples are taken from
information declassified in 1977, and from other private source
accounts. Several involve incidents which are still of unknown origins
and which cannot be fully explained:
1763 The British during the French-Indian War. The Native Americans
greatly outnumbered the British and were suspected of being on the side
of the French. As an "act of good will" the British give blankets to the
Native Americans, but the dirty blankets came from a hospital that was
treating smallpox victims and consequently smallpox raged through the
Native American community and devastated their numbers.
1814 Andrew Jackson, whose portrait appears on the U.S. $20 bill today,
supervised the mutilation of 800 or more Creek Indian corpses, the
bodies of men, women and children that his troops had massacred, cutting
off their noses to count and preserve a record of the dead, slicing long
strips of flesh from their bodies to tan and turn into bridle reins.
1900 A U.S. doctor doing research in the Philippines infected of number
of prisoners with the Plague. He continued his research by inducing
Beriberi in another 29 prisoners. The experiments resulted in two known
1915 A doctor in Mississippi produced Pellagra in twelve white
Mississippi inmates in an attempt to discover a cure for the disease.
1918 The modern history of Biological Warfare starts in 1918 with the
Japanese formation of a special section of the Army (Unit 731) dedicated
to BW. The thought at the time was "Science and Technology are the Key's
to Winning War and Biological Warfare is the most cost effective
1931 The Puerto Rican Cancer Experiment was undertaken by 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. With a ironic twist, the wives and ladies
of these infected men were also not notified or treated, and may have
infected others, The almost men 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 occurred within
poverty stricken 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 Paper clip 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
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 Commission
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 In 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 Francisco. Monitoring devices are situated
throughout the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many
residents become ill with pneumonia like symptoms.
1950 - 1953: An array of germ warfare weapons were allegedly used
against North Korea. Accounts claim that there were releases of feathers
infected with anthrax, fleas and mosquitoes dosed with Plague and Yellow
Fever, and rodents infected with a variety of diseases. These were
precisely the same techniques used in immunity from prosecution in
exchange for the results of that research. The Eisenhower administration
later pressed Sedition Charges against three Americans who published
charges of these activities. However, none of those charged were
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.
1952 - 1953: In another series of experiments, the U.S. military
released clouds of "harmless" gases over six (6) U.S. and Canadian
cities to observe the potential for similar releases under chemical and
germ warfare scenarios. A follow-up report by the military noted the
occurrence of respiratory problems in the unwitting civilian
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 sub
projects 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.
1956 The Soviet Union accused the U.S. of using biological weapons in
Korea, which lead them to threaten future use of Chemical and Biological
weapons. This changed the focus of the U.S. program to a more defensive
one. Before this, the bulk of the research was based at Ft. Detrick and
used "surrogate biological agents" to model more deadly organisms. Most
of the offensive tests were based on "secret spraying" of organisms over
populated areas. This program was (supposedly) shut down in 1969.
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
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 light bulbs 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.
1972: U.S. President Nixon announced a ban on the production and use of
biological (but not chemical) warfare agents. However, as the Army's own
experts reveal, this ban is meaningless because the studies required to
protect against biological warfare weapons are generally
indistinguishable from those for chemical weapons.
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
retro virologists 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.
1980-1981: Within months of their incarceration in detention centers in
Miami and Puerto Rico, many male Haitian refugees developed an unusual
condition called "gynecomasia". This is a condition in which males
develop full female breasts. A number of the internees at Ft. Allen in
Puerto Rico claimed that they were forced to undergo a series of
injections which they believed to be hormones.
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.
1981: More than 300,000 Cubans were stricken with dengue hemorrhagic
fever. An investigation by the magazine 'Covert Action Information
Bulletin', which tracks the workings of various intelligence agencies
around the world, suggested that this outbreak was the result of a
release of mosquitoes by Cuban counterrevolutionaries. The magazine
tracked the activities of one CIA operative from a facility in Panama to
the alleged Cuban connections. During the last 30 years, Cuba has been
subjected to an enormous number of outbreaks of human and crop diseases
which are difficult to attribute purely natural causes.
1982: El Salvadoran trade unionists claimed that epidemics of many
previously unknown diseases had cropped up in areas immediately after
U.S. directed aerial bombings. There is no hard evidence to support
these charges. However, the pattern and types of outbreaks are
consistent with the claims.
1985 According to the journal Science (227:173-177), HTLV and VISNA, a
fatal sheep virus, are very similar, indicating a close taxonomic and
1985: An outbreak of Dengue fever strikes Managua Nicaragua shortly
after an increase of U.S. aerial reconnaissance missions. Nearly half of
the capital city's population was stricken with the disease, and several
deaths have been attributed to the outbreak. It was the first such
epidemic in the country and the outbreak was nearly identical to that
which struck Cuba a few years earlier (1981). Dengue fever variations
were the focus of much experimentation at the Army's Biological Warfare
test facility at Ft. Dietrick, Maryland prior to the 'ban' on such
research in 1972.
1985: In ruling on a case in which a former U.S. Army sergeant attempted
to bring a lawsuit against the Army for using experimental drugs on him,
without his knowledge, the U.S. Supreme Court determined that allowing
such an action against the military would disrupt the chain of command.
Thus, nearly all potential actions against the military for past, or
future, misdeeds have been barred as have actions aimed at the release
of classified documents on the subject.
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
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, psycho chemicals, 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
1996: Under pressure from Congress and the public, after a 60 Minutes
segment, the U.S. Department of Defense finally admits that at least
20,000 U.S. servicemen "may" have been exposed to chemical weapons
during operation 'Desert Storm'. This exposure came as a result of the
destruction of a weapons bunker. Causes of the similar illnesses of
other troops, who were not in this area, have not yet been explained,
other than as post traumatic stress syndromes. Veterans groups have
released information that many of the problems may be a result of
experimental vaccines and inoculations which were provided troops during
the military build-up.
[Reportedly, the Bush family have or had shares in the vaccine company]
1997 Eighty eight members of Congress sign a letter demanding an
investigation into bio-weapons use & Gulf War Syndrome.
2001 Many people infected with the anthrax virus, along the eastern
coast of the united snakes supposedly through the postal system, first
blamed on Osama Bin Laden, and then later withdrawn, strain proven to
originate in a US lab, no one has been caught.
2003 The united snakes military injects hundreds of thousands of
military personnel with various serums in preparation for a invasion of
