As reported recently in an article on Mail Online, Army scientists secretly sprayed chemicals with radioactive particles on residents of St. Louis, Missouri in the 50s and 60s. This was done as a secret experiment connected to a large radiological weapons testing project, according to Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor of St. Louis Community College.
Investigations in the past concerning radiological experiments were denied by the military, but new information shows that many in St. Louis, especially minorities, were targeted for this experiment. The highest concentration of these chemicals were sprayed on the Pruitt-Igoe public housing project, where there were 10,000 residents, 7000 of which were children under the age of 12.
As would be expected, the incidence of cancer was more evident among residents who had lived in that area later on, and that is what spiked Professor Martino-Taylor’s interest. Through her research, she uncovered documents that she believes prove the chemical mixture sprayed on unsuspecting residents containing cadmium sulfide was laced with radioactive particles.
Martino-Taylor was able to link this chemical warfare experiment to a now closed company called US Radium. Workers for that company had filed many lawsuits after they were exposed to very high levels of radioactive materials.
This story is very important in many aspects, but especially because it shows the complete disregard for public welfare by the Army as far back as 60 years ago. It shows that the citizens of this country were (and are) thought of by government as nothing more than lab rats to be used for experimental purposes; all secretly and without any consent. People were endangered, and diseased, so that the Army would hopefully find a chemical weapon that it could use against those innocents in foreign lands. That boils down to sacrificing Americans for the single purpose of better being able to murder innocents overseas.
In her findings, one of the compounds that was sprayed upon the public was called ‘FP2266′, according to the army’s documents, and was manufactured by US Radium. The compound, also known as Radium 226, was the same one that killed and sickened many of the US Radium workers.
The Army has admitted that it added a fluorescent substance to the ‘harmless’ compound, but whether or not the additive was radioactive remains classified.
Classified in this case, as in most all other cases, means secret. If radioactive materials were not sprayed on unwitting Americans, the Army would simply release the documents. Since they refuse to do so, it is apparent that those deadly experiments at the expense of those in St. Louis, mostly children, were done.
This should serve to alert all in this country that those in power only have contempt for the general population. It should also alert all to the fact that the government and its agents of force would not hesitate to maim, kill, or imprison the citizenry if given orders to do so. To believe otherwise is a fool’s game!
