Pentagon knowingly exposed troops to cancer-causing chemicals, document shows

E-mail Print PDF

A newly leaked military document appears to show the Pentagon knowingly exposed US troops to toxic chemicals that cause cancer, while publicly downplaying the risks exposure might cause.

The document, written by an environmental engineering flight commander in December of 2006 and posted on Wikileaks (PDF) on Tuesday, details the risks posed to US troops in Iraq by burning garbage at a US airbase. It enumerates myriad risks posed by the practice and identifies various carcinogens released by incinerating waste in open-air pits.

TVNL Comment: Is this a surprise? Did you ever see the nuclear bomb tests from the 1950s and 60s where they lined up soldiers near the blasts and then ordered them to walk into the blast site after the test. They were using soldiers to test the effects of radiation. The U.S. has never given a damn about the troops. Supporting the troops is code speak for funding the military contractors and suppliers. It means war profiteering and nothing more.
