Your Tax Dollars at Work: Feeding Children Poop

In reading Hank's piece over at Deconstructing the Manifest, one rather astounding little detail about how, exactly, the CIA was spending US tax payer dollars on bioweapons research jumped out at my astigmatic eye. Overseeing the joint CIA-Ft. Detrick SOD MK/NAOMI project, Dr. Charles H. Rammelkamp, Jr. of the Armed Forces Epidemiological Board (AFEB), approved experiments on "physically healthy mentally retarded children at the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, New York." One of those experiments centered on infection vectors.
The experiments centered on subject children being fed infected stool extracts obtained from individuals with hepatitis, thus infecting the subject children with the virus.
This presented on a "NEED TO KNOW" basis only.
