Hundreds of thousands of American veterans have been killed or disabled by what amounts to a massive program of harmful human experimentation, according to my frequent radio guest Doug Rokke.
In the letter below, disabled veteran David Marshall urges that military personnel be offered the same protection against harmful human experimentation that convicted rapists and murderers receive. -KB

Dr. Kevin Barrett,
The following summary addresses the U.S. Senate  and Government Accountability Office (GAO)  proven Department of Defense (DOD) non-consensual, human experiments. Given the U.S. Congress’s from 1944 through 1994, 2002 and to-date lack of corrective action, it is suggested that these “to harm” experiments continue. Your ideas on how to accomplish a collective, correcting solution would be appreciated. Thank you for your consideration.
Veterans lose, rapists and murderers gain SUMMARY.
For U.S. convicted Rapists and Murderers “Non-consensual experimentation is illegal”  vs. the U.S. Senate and GAO documented DOD premeditated “experiments that were designed to harm” [3 & 4] conducted on U.S. SERVICE PERSONNEL. This DOD “to harm” behavior is encouraged by the U.S. Supreme Court accidental death by DOD barracks fire “incident to service”, “Feres Doctrine”.  In particular by its sweeping enlargement to capture deliberate DOD “experiments that were designed to harm” as an “incident to service”, e.g., the U.S. Supreme Court Stanley DOD, LSD experiment. This 1958 experiment on Stanley was in direct disobedience of the Secretary of the DOD’s 1953 NO non-consensual experiments order!  A 26 Feb. 1953 “TOP SECRET” “Memorandum”, “UNCLASSIFIED”, TWENTY TWO (22) years later on 22 Aug. 75.
“To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces” is the responsibility of the U.S. Congress via. the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 14.
The “Veterans Right to Know Act”  has been rejected by the U.S. Congress EIGHT (8) times from 1999 through 2007 and to-date. The 2002 U.S. Senate Hearing  on the 1950 Feres Doctrine  is 137 pages of 19 Testimonials and Submissions for the Record that ignored the U.S. Constitution, Amendment 8, no cruel and unusual punishments. Not 2002 addressed were the U.S. Senate and GAO back to 1944 documented “experiments that were designed to harm”. Also underlying the U.S. Congress’s responsibility is the still currently ignored 1994 U.S. Senate Report on 50 years of non-consensual, “to harm” experiments on U.S. Military Personnel. The Report “Is Military Research Hazardous to Veterans’ Health?” with its DOD “military research” “experiments that were designed to harm” conducted on “hundreds of thousands”! Some of its, “III. Findings and conclusions” are, “K. DOD and DVA have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical followup to those who participate in military research…” plus “N. Participation in military research is rarely included in military medical records, making it impossible to support a veteran’s claim for service-connected disabilities from military research.” With the U.S. Senate’s 1994 reported past 50 years and a now 18 more years it is 68 years of “Non-consensual experimentation is illegal” on U.S. convicted rapists and murderers but on U.S. Veterans a right to know ignored. Thereby, without corrective action don’t they continue?
Each DOD “military research” Project completes the Research and Development (R&D) process. The prior lessons learned are reviewed. The then DOD Scope of Work (SOW) defines what the experiment is “designed” to do. The how, where, when and who is identified. The conducted researched cause and effects are closely followed with ongoing progress reports. From the results are developed safe production and end use with medical treatment and needed protection. Accordingly, then recorded are the project resultant disabilities with their withheld needed for “to harm” treatment but experiment proving evidence!
In 2012 shouldn’t U.S. Service Personnel have the same U.S. Constitutional Rights that convicted rapists and murderers keep? PLEASE HELP by asking your members in the U.S. Congress to provide U.S. Military Personnel with the same protection from “experiments that were designed to harm” as rapists and murderers receive.
