100 Years of US Troops as Lab Rats

  1. Video, Abby Martin

    On Memorial Day, politicians will speak at ceremonies all over the country and repeat their favorite mantra: "Support the troops."

    This pledge is hammered into the American psyche at every turn. But there is a hidden, dark history that shows that the politicians are in fact no friend to service members--but their greatest enemy.

    Abby Martin documents experimentation on US troops, from race-based chemical agent tests to nuclear weapons.

Abby Martin rocks. So does Cenk Ugyur.

Rachel Maddow initially had promise at MSNBC under Keith Olberman but when he left, she chose to toe the line. Ugyur also left MSNBC because he refused to.

Yeah, she did show promise. didn’t she.

When Rachel Maddow got her own show, she bought multi-million $ apartment in Manhattan. She then had a huge monthly nut to cover.

Tom Hickey said...

Right. She joined the 0.1%. Cenk walked away from it.

Yes, your right about Cenk and Abby Martin, they're genuine. Cenk is so entertaining, when he's on you know it's going to be good. In the interview with Peter Joseph of the Zeitgeist movement, you could see Cenk trying to get his head around it, he did try. Nice guy.
