CIA Being Sued by Veterans

Posted:

The US Central Intelligence Agency is being sued by six former soldiers as well as the Vietnam Veterans of America over secret testing that was once carried out that endangered the health and lives of the soldiers. It is claimed in the lawsuit that the CIA failed to provide adequate care and protection for soldiers when the testing was carried out.
The tests that are referred to in the lawsuit are biological and chemical testing, as well as drug testing, where things such as nerve gas, mind control experiments, and hallucinogenic drugs were said to have been secretly tested without protection for the soldiers that were exposed to them.

One attorney involved in the case said: “What is not historical about these tests is the impact they had on the enlisted men. They have never been compensated, they have been denied health care, they have been left alone for more than 30 years.”

A CIA spokesperson stated: “CIA activities related to MKULTRA have been thoroughly investigated and the CIA fully cooperated with each of the investigations. Tens of thousands of pages from documents related to the program have been declassified and released to the public.”
