After more than 50 years of keeping this dirty secret, the experiments were finally revealed and the U.S. government was forced to finally apologize to the Guatemalan people. The Guatemalan people are suing now, and the Rockefeller foundation, which was the true power behind the studies is also part of that lawsuit.
Did you know that the U.S. government deliberately gave innocent people STD’s to study them during the 1940’s? This included soldiers, prisoners, prostitutes, the mentally ill and even innocent orphan children.
While this may come as a surprise to many people, this is not the first time the American government has done something like this. For several decades the American government did this to some of its own citizens too, in the Tuskegee syphilis study! This, however, goes even deeper into a secret project from the CIA known as MKULTRA in which the government secretly experimented on the population, including mind control brainwashing operations.
Sadly, this is not the only massive crime the government has committed against the Guatemalan people, in the 1980’s they also armed, trained and funded a brutal government and its military, which committed genocide against the native people. They murdered more than 100,000 people!
