Vietnam Vets Can Proceed with Case Over CIA Testing of Electronic Implants , Mind Control by Jamie Ross 1/20/10 (CN)
A federal judge in San Francisco has given the green light to an action by Vietnam vets saying the CIA prevented roughly 7,000 human subjects from getting medical care after they were subjected to experiments on mind control, implantation of electronics and the effects of exotic drugs. Federal Judge Claudia Wilken allowed a challenge to the consent forms signed by individual plaintiffs involved in the experiments, to the extent that they required an oath of secrecy. At the same time, she dismissed the challenge to the legality of the CIA’s human testing program of the 1950s and ’60s….
The court also denied the CIA’s motion for judgment that the plaintiffs’ claims are time-barred and that the court lacks jurisdiction because the plaintiffs’ medical care “has been wrongfully withheld,” causing them injury due to the agency’s failure to act. The CIA and the U.S. Army experimented on human subjects in the 1950s. The experiments included exposing subjects to “various chemicals, drugs and/or the implantation of electronic devices” and “developing mind-control methods.”
About 7,800 armed services volunteers participated, but were not fully informed of the potential risks of the procedures. http://www.courthousenews.com/2010/01/20/23839.htm
