However, the Internet is always kind enough to remind us, make sure we don’t ever forget!
Oh, how nice and thoughtful of them to apologize for blasting American citizens with radiation. And now think, really hard! It is the same ol’ Government that is trying to push the medical treatment, the COVID jab as a necessity because those charity people in the Government want to help the population in the country?
Here’s more from the Associated Press, and the original report from them, dating 25 years ago!
“President Clinton apologized to the victims of secret Cold War-era radiation experiments Tuesday and promised greater openness to guard against future abuses.
“We will no longer hide the truth from our citizens,″ Clinton said at a White House ceremony where he accepted a report documenting three decades of government-sponsored experiments on people, often without their clear consent.
A 14-member advisory panel has recommended that victims of the radiation experiments from 1944 to 1974 be financially compensated in cases where the government or researchers deliberately misled them, or where there was no medical benefit and they were physically harmed.
Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary said she planned to establish a task force to examine who might be eligible for compensation. Most of the experiments involved the Atomic Energy Commission, the department’s predecessor agency.
Accepting the 900-page report, Clinton said, “The United States of America offers a sincere apology to those of our citizens who were subjected to these experiments, to their families, and to their communities.″
The panel documented some 4,000 radiation experiments, but said most “are unlikely to have caused physical harm.″ Nevertheless, a number of experiments, including the injection of 18 civilians with plutonium, were singled out as clear violations of ethical and moral standards.
“When the government does wrong, we have a moral responsibility to admit it,″ Clinton told an audience that included a number of relatives of some of the victims of the most troubling experiments.
Promising to prevent future abuses, the president established the National Bioethics Advisory Commission to help shape policy regarding research to assure the protection of human test subjects. He also ordered a government-wide review to make certain that the rights of anyone participating in a medical experiment are protected.
The advisory panel singled out only three experiments, involving about 30 people, where it said compensation clearly is warranted. It cited a half dozen other cases that might be “candidates″ for compensation if the test subjects were found to have suffered physical harm.
Clinton said most of the Cold War-era experiments were conducted in an ethical manner, but others _ including the plutonium experiments _ were wrong and often shrouded in secrecy “not for a compelling need for national security, but for the simple fear of embarrassment.″
