Top American officials apologized on Friday as they revealed an experiment conducted in the 1940s in which United States government medical researchers deliberately infected Guatemalan prison inmates, soldiers and mental patients with syphilis.

@fbaezer,
I heard the story earlier today. There can be no justification for such acts and an apology does not make it go away for me.

@ossobuco,
I don't care if there is another thread.

Meantime, the callousness with brutality is hard to absorb.

But, wait.

I don't dump on the apology.

@fbaezer,
apparently Mengele are us

Photos show U.S. soldiers posing with Afghan corpses
Troops allegedly passed around grisly images like trading cards



Quote:


Cpl. Jeremy Morlock is among five Stryker soldiers charged with premeditated murder and conspiracy to commit premeditated murder.

SEATTLE — Those who have seen the photos say they are grisly: soldiers beside newly killed bodies, decaying corpses and severed fingers.

The dozens of photos, described in interviews and in e-mails and military documents obtained by The Associated Press, were seized by Army investigators and are a crucial part of the case against five soldiers accused of killing three Afghan civilians earlier this year.

Troops allegedly shared the photos by e-mail and thumb drive like electronic trading cards. Now 60 to 70 of them are being kept tightly shielded from the public and even defense attorneys because of fears they could wind up in the news media and provoke anti-American violence.




Trying to find the words...

@JPB,
I blanche, but I see how it happens.

Among my nightmare scenarios, is being a soldier who didn't get with the group doing this stuff.

It's great pity that the organizers of the study are dead so that we can't drag them to jail like dogs.
