The US Department of Defense has for the first time admitted that it carried out race-based tests on American troops as part of its research about mustard gas.

Up to 60,000 men were enlisted for a program, declassified in 1993, to test mustard gas and other chemicals agents on US troops.

But National Public Radio reported that the Pentagon has for the first time admitted that it grouped its test subjects by race as it believed African American and Puerto Rican US troops might respond to the poisonous gas different to white soldiers.

    In the Bible account at Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4
    Jesus has a conversation with Satan. Satan tells Jesus he is in control of the governments. So, it is no surprise the evil perpetrated by the governments of the world. But all is not lost Daniel 2:44 assures us that God’s kingdom will prevail.
