    Congress’s Oath of Office?
    [
    The U.S. Congress reported that, “Every year, thousands of experiments utilizing human subjects are still being conducted by, or on behalf of, the DOD.” These are Department Of Defense “experiments that were designed to harm”! They are identified in the 56 page U.S. Senate 1994, Report 103-97, “IS MILITARY RESEARCH HAZARDOUS TO VETERANS’ HEALTH? LESSONS SPANNING HALF A CENTURY.” with its 171 source “NOTES”. Under the Bill of Rights, Amendment VIII is, “…nor cruel and unusual punishments.”. This is reiterated in the, “U.S. Report under the International Convent on Civil and Political Rights, July 1994 Article 7 “Freedom from Torture, or Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.” As of 2014 (“HALF A CENTURY.”+ 20 years later) the U.S. Congress has yet “To make Rules…” preventing the “Degrading” rape of and the injurious, non-consensual experiments on all U.S. Military Personnel. 1994 noted were missing needed for treatment and experimentation verifying records! This is again verified by Congress’s subsequent EIGHT (8) times rejection of the “Veterans Right To Know Act”! On 25 July 2012 a U.S. Magistrate Judge ordered the VA to release these DOD experimentation records!
    [
    Congress Overlooks:
    A..”To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces.” is the U.S. Congress’s responsibility under the U.S. Constitution, Art. I, Sect. 8, Clause 14.
    B..”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” This is the U.S. Congress’s Oath of Office.
    [
    Please require your members of Congress to obey their abandoned Oath of Office! Shouldn’t U.S. Service Personnel have the same U.S. Constitutional, Amendment 8, Rights that: 1. Were given by the 26 February 1953 Secretary of the Department of Defense’s, to-date ignored, no non-consensual human experimentation order. And 2. Are given to convicted rapists and murderers under the Amendment VIII reiteration, “U.S. Report under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights July 1994, Article 7 – Freedom from Torture, or Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.”
    [
    “EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW” is carved in stone above the main entrance to the U.S. Supreme Court Building. Please make this happen for veterans and active duty military men and woman!

    Thank you.
