Chapter 17 THE COLD WAR AND BEYOND: COVERT AND DECEPTIVE AMERICAN MEDICAL EXPERIMENTATION – SUSAN E. LEDERER, PHD – Military Medical Ethics, Volume 2

HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION DURING THE COLD WAR ERA
The Nuremberg Code and the United States Government
The Human Radiation Experiments
The Central Intelligence Agency and “Mind-Altering” Substances
The US Army and Biological Warfare Tests in America

“During the last decade Americans have increasingly confronted the tragic record of clandestine and deceptive human experimentation in the 20th century. Expert commissions have issued reports, the injured have sought and received financial compensation, and the government has apologized to citizen subjects of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and the human radiation experiments. Lawsuits brought by veterans of biological, chemical, and atomic warfare studies continue to wend their way through the courts. These lawsuits permit a financial accounting of loss of life, liberty, and mental distress. They do not take into account the corrosion of trust in American researchers and the American government. Even more disturbing is the fear that thesethings could happen again unless adequate safeguards remain in effect and the lessons of the past are learned.” http://www.bordeninstitute.army.mil/published_volumes/ethicsVol2/Ethics-ch-17.pdf
