by Lyndsay Griffiths, 12-4-97

Here is the location of the full “The Rockefeller Report” A summary of findings from this staggering document from Paul Mitchell Candidate for Congress

Finding “For at least 50 years, DOD has knowingly exposed military personnel to potentially dangerous substances, often in secret.”

Finding “DOD has repeatedly failed to comply with required ethical standards when using human subjects in military research during war or threat of war.”

Finding “DOD incorrectly claims that since their goal was treatment, the use of investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War was not research.”

Finding “DOD used investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War in ways that were not effective.”

Finding “DOD did not know whether pyridostigmine bromide would be safe for use by U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf War.”

Finding “When U.S. troops were sent to the Persian Gulf in 1994, DOD still did not have proof that pyridostigmine bromide was safe for use as an antidote enhancer.”

Finding “Pyridostigmine may be more dangerous in combination with pesticides or other exposures.”

Finding “The safety of the botulism vaccine was not established prior to the Persian Gulf War and remains uncertain.”

Finding “Records of anthrax vaccine are not suitable to evaluate safety.”

Finding “Army regulations exempt informed consent for volunteers in some types of military studies.”

Finding “DOD and DVA have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical follow-up to those who participate in military research or are ordered to take investigational drugs.”

Finding “The federal government has failed to support scientific studies that provide information about reproductive problems experienced by veterans who were intentionally exposed to potentially dangerous substances.”

Finding “The federal government has also failed to support scientific studies that provide timely information for compensation decisions regarding military personnel who were harmed by various exposures.”

Finding “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.”

Finding “DOD has demonstrated a pattern of misrepresenting the danger of various military exposures that continues today.”
