Chemical Warfare Drills by Homeland Security Will Turn Humans into Lab Rats, Many Fear

Posted on Wednesday, 13th December 2017 @ 10:03 PM by Text Size A | A | A

Residents of a small Oklahoma farming town near the Kansas border fear the federal government will be using them as lab rats if it carries out plans for biological warfare testing in the area next month. The Department of Homeland Security is set to release what is says are inert chemicals into the atmosphere near an abandoned school in Newkirk, Oklahoma. It aims to gauge how the chemicals travel through the air and whether they could infiltrate buildings and homes where people were seeking shelter in the event of a biological attack

The chemical agents the department plans to utilize are titanium dioxide, which is common in sunscreens and cosmetics; fluorescent brightener, used in laundry detergents; urea, a natural fertilizer; and Dipel, an insecticide.

Area residents dispute the Homeland Security assurances that the chemicals are harmless to humans, animals and the environment. 

Jill Wineinger, a resident of nearby Arkansas City in Kansas, has collected nearly 9,000 signatures on a petition seeking to block the testing since Homeland Security on November 6 placed a legal notice about the tests in a Newkirk newspaper to invite the public to comment on the environmental assessment during a 30-day open comment period. 

“We just don’t really know or trust that everything that they’re saying is what they’re doing,” Wineinger told Newsweek.

Wineinger, a 35-year-old mother of two, said she’s allergic to urea and could be hospitalized if she’s exposed to it. She also is worried about individuals with asthma and fears the chemicals could contaminate the area’s crops.
