    The apology should come attached to financial aid for the victims.

    Yea, that sucked. The next time the government decides to do STD experiments on people, pick the banksters to do it on. I am sure that there will be very few complaints.

    What I want to know is what earthly good does it do to give our enemies and potential enemies and our blame America first domestic enemies from within like Obama and Hillary more fodder the use around the World against us, and it fixes not one damn thing.

    When this kind of thing comes to light it should be quietly investigated to insure that it has stopped and unless there is a positive reason it should remain in the files unless those responsible can be brought to justice.

    Otherwise it's more worthless Left-wing garbage.

    That's a total load of crapola. It does no good what so ever, and helps no one who may or may not have suffered as a result.

    I do not for one second condone what was done and yes it is said that confession cleanses the soul. However that is an individual and very personal thing between you and the Lord not for . Not for nations.

    Between 1985 and 1992, the United States provided Guatemala about $936 million total aid.

    That should cover any past damages and a half.

    This BS invites trouble.

    Government researchers infected patients with syphilis, gonorrhea without their consent in the 1940s


    U.S. government medical researchers intentionally infected hundreds of people in Guatemala, including institutionalized mental patients, with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge or permission more than 60 years ago.

    Many of those infected were encouraged to pass the infection onto others as part of the study.

    About one third of those who were infected never got adequate treatment.

    On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius offered extensive apologies for actions taken by the U.S. Public Health Service.

    "The sexually transmitted disease inoculation study conducted from 1946-1948 in Guatemala was clearly unethical," according to the joint statement from Clinton and Sebelius. "Although these events occurred more than 64 years ago, we are outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health. We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices."

    The apology was directed to Guatemala and to Hispanic residents of the United States, according to officials.

    "The people of Guatemala are our close friends and neighbors in the Americas," the statement says. "As we move forward to better understand this appalling event, we reaffirm the importance of our relationship with Guatemala, and our respect for the Guatemalan people, as well as our commitment to the highest standards of ethics in medical research."

    I just love how some folk will argue 'til frothing at the mouth that our government would NEVER do such things. Too many of us are living happily drunk in our guilded cages.
