Military Testing of Gelatinous Goo Story on Unsolved Mysteries
July 5, 2009
Robert Stack makes it sound like something out of a science fictions story — a small town in Washington state falls victim to a plague of sorts after tiny blobs of gelatinous goo rained from the sky on August 7, 1994. It made dozens of people severely ill.
Black military helicopters were sighted in the Oakville, Washington area before rain storms brought the fall of the unknown substance.
In 1997, residents of in the Everett area of Washington State reported a similar clear gelatinous substance falling from the sky, according to a guest on Art Bell’s syndicated radio program. “Art’s guest says she received hundreds of calls from people all over the country that have also reported the fall of deadly gelatin blobs.”
In 1977, during a congressional hearing, the Pentagon admitted to conducting hundreds of secret germ “attacks” in a number of cities, using microorganisms it claimed were harmless to humans. “Most of the open-air test sites are known only from a list provided by the Army for a 1977 hearing before the Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research, a panel then chaired by Senator Edward M. Kennedy but since disbanded. Details about a few of the actual tests have since become available through law suits and Freedom of Information Act claims. Although documents describing open-air testing have been partially censored by the Military, they indicate that one of the Army’s chief goals was to conduct the experiments without raising suspicions among exposed populations,” Leonard A. Cole wrote for the Washington Monthly in 1985.
The Pentagon has a long track record of using unsuspecting civilians as guinea pigs. For example, in 1965, the Army conducted open air tests using the simulant Bacillus globigii at Washington DC’s National Airport and Greyhound bus terminal. The following year, the Army conducted tests in Manhattan subway line in order to analyze the vulnerability of large metropolitan areas to biological weapons attacks. (See the “History of the US Offensive Biological Warfare Program” timeline.)
“Although such military research was highly classified, by 1975 concern over revelations of myriad intelligence abuses led to a comprehensive investigation by the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee, which published a CIA memorandum listing the deadly chemical agents and toxins then stockpiled at Fort Detrick,” write Ellen Ray and Willam H. Schaap (Bioterror: Manufacturing Wars the American Way). “These included anthrax, encephalitis, tuberculosis, lethal snake venom, shellfish toxin, and half a dozen lethal food poisons, some of which, the committee learned, had been shipped in the early 1960s to Congo and to Cuba in unsuccessful CIA attempts to assassinate Patrice Lumumba and Fidel Castro.”
Following World War II, biological warfare was advanced through funding by the CIA, the Department of Defense, and the Navy with hundreds of biological warfare (BW) projects at corporations and universities throughout the country. The Pentagon claimed to have banned research in 1969, due to public pressure, but in 1975 it was learned that a CIA project still maintained BW stocks at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
“Despite the international agreement which banned development of germ-warfare agents, the Pentagon’s research budget for infectious diseases and toxins has increased tenfold since fiscal 1981. Further, most of the 1986 budget of $42 million went to 24 U.S. university campuses where the world’s most deadly organisms are being cultured in campus labs. Similarly, the U.S. Army has resumed biological agent testing at its Dugway, Utah, test site which had been declared unsafe a decade earlier,” Project Censored reported in 1981.
There are numerous reportings of gelatinous rain associated with chemtrails. There is a patent (United States Patent 6,315,213) describing a method for artificially modifying the weather by seeding rain clouds of a storm with suitable cross-linked aqueous polymer. “The polymer is dispersed into the cloud and the wind of the storm agitates the mixture causing the polymer to absorb the rain,” explains a web page on atmospheric geoengineering and chemtrail patents. “This reaction forms a gelatinous substance which precipitate to the surface below. Thus, diminishing the clouds ability to rain.”
