ISIS PLANS ATTACK ON FOOD SUPPLY, PRACTICED BY POISONING PRISONERS

The Islamic State group used prisoners as “human guinea pigs,” carrying out chemical weapons experiments in order to plan for attacks against the West, documents found in Mosul have revealed. The papers detailing the tests, which led to the agonizing deaths of prisoners, were discovered at Mosul University in January when it was recaptured by Iraqi special forces. The documents verified by United States and British forces were detailed by The Times in a report published Saturday.

Prisoners had their food and water contaminated by the sprinkling of chemicals found in easily accessible pesticides. The U.S. and Britain now fear that the same methods could be used on a larger scale to contaminate food supplies in the West.

In one of the experiments detailed, a man was gradually poisoned with thallium sulfate, a colorless, tasteless toxin made famous by the Agatha Christie mystery, The Pale Horse. ISIS described it as an “ideal lethal poison” and its test subject, having been given it over a period of 10 days, suffered nausea, fever, swelling of his stomach and brain and eventually an excruciating death.

Another chemical compound tested, found in nicotine and extractable from cigarettes, was injected into a subject, causing the victim to lose consciousness in a matter of seconds and die just two hours later.

The tests mirrored human experiments carried out by the Nazis in concentrations camps during World War II.

“This is a horrifying throwback to the Nazis who would test nerve agents on live humans,” Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a U.K. chemical weapons expert, told The Times. “During the Second World War, the Nazis conducted thousands of deadly experiments with mustard gas on prisoners at Sachsenhausen concentration camp, near Berlin.”
