White House: chemical weapons

U.S.victims.orange

Some 12 million gallons of Agent Orange (Monsanto) were sprayed over South Vietnam at up to 50 times the concentration recommended for killing weeds. About 5 million acres of forests and crops were destroyed and an estimated 4.5 million Vietnamese and hundreds of thousands of American soldiers were exposed.

Barack Obama filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) and the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration):
- At the USDA, as the director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center.
- As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar, the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy for Monsanto. Taylor had been instrumental in getting approval for Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.
- As commissioner of the USDA, Iowa governor, Tom Vilsack. Vilsack had set up a national group, the Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership, and had been given a Governor of the Year Award by the Biotechnology Industry Organization, whose members include Monsanto.
- As the new Agriculture Trade Representative, who would push GMOs for export, Islam Siddiqui, a former Monsanto lobbyist.

On March 26, 2013, Obama signed bill H.R. 933 into law which had the biotech rider known as the “Monsanto Protection Act” in it.
The Monsanto Protection Act, part of the HR 933 continuing resolution, allows Monsanto to override U.S. federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the country. Even if those experimental crops are found to be extremely dangerous or to cause a runaway crop plague, the U.S. government now has no judicial power to stop them from being planted and harvested.

As ibtimes.com reports, the bill “effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of GMO or GE crops and seeds, no matter what health consequences from the consumption of these products may come to light in the future.”
