OBAMA’S NEW GENETICS EXPERIMENTS WITH VETERANS RAISING QUESTIONS

Dr. Josef Mengele was known as “der Weiss angel,” or the white angel, at the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland during World War II. His white lab coat caught the fleeting attention of dying “patients” there, as he prepared and executed his grotesque genetic experiments on them. One wonders what historians of the future will call the doctors at the Veterans Administration who are poised to perform their own genetic experiments on a captive population.
The VA recently launched a massive medical data collection effort called the “Million Veteran Program,” run by Doctors Timothy O’Leary and Joel Kuppersmith at the Veterans Health Administration, Office of Research and Development.
The good doctors are gathering genetic information from one million former U.S. service vets — soldiers, sailors, and airmen. They are pressuring the veterans who use the VHA health services – at about 500 hospitals across the U.S.. – to give blood samples. During every routine visit, and also by phone and mail. The blood samples, once obtained, are then placed in cryogenic storage in a huge bio-repository on the East Coast. These blood samples contain the soldiers’ own DNA – the code of their genetic makeup.
To what end?
