Sarin gas claimed used in Syrian attack also used by U.S. military in secret 1960s testing in Hilo’s watershed
Below is a link to an Associated Press story on the April 4, 2017 gas attack in Syria that killed nearly 90 people. Autopsies done in Turkey report that sarin gas was used in the attack. Whether the gas was used, or a stockpile intentionally or accidentally bombed by the Syrain government, terrorist rebels, or others has not been determined. An independent investigation is needed.

Below is a cover page Fact Sheet code named “Green Mist” on Sarin nerve gas agent (GB) tested by the U.S. military March 25- April 24, 1967 in the Ola’a Forest. The tests detonated M139 sarin nerve agent filled bomblets at several heights below the forest canopy. The fact sheet was released by the U.S. Defense Dept. on Oct. 9, 2002. Many other chemical biological tests were secretly conducted over several years in the forests south of Hilo during the 1960s: Code names “Yellow Leaf” Pine Ridge” “Blue Tango” “Tall Timber” “Red Oak” etc.
Whether there were harmful health effects on Hawaii island residents is unknown. The military obtained a lease from the State of Hawaii to do what it said was “Weather testing.” The military lied. They were secretly testing deadly chemical/biological agents some of which can kill in minutes at dosages of 1/50 of a drop according to Chemical and Biological Warfare author Seymour M. Hersh, Hersh says Sarin GB gas is an odorless, colorless volatile gas. Seymour Hersh was the investigative reporter who disclosed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam where U.S. troops slaughtered hundreds of unarmed children, women and elderly at the village of My Lai.
Hunters and DLNR staff have said there are wide areas where nothing grows in what use to be rainforest where these chemical/biological tests took place. Lots of barrels remain there. Lots of the stuff was mixed at KMC and excess was dumped across the hwy in the lava crack by Volcano golf course. The point is the military lied to the state about leasing land for “weather testing.” Shinichi Kimura who was Mayor when Patsy Mink broke the story said “CANCEL THE LEASE. THE MILITARY LIED.” The lease was cancelled. The same should be done at Pohakuloa. The military said for years they never used DU. Then peace groups on Oahu found documents confirming DU use. The military lied again. Cancel the Pohakuloa lease.
