Pentagon to use US Vets as Guinea Pigs?



Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been growing among US vets at an alarming rate. The trauma of war has over 300,000 deployed soldiers living with PTSD, which makes approximately 20 percent of vets. In 2010, the number of diagnosed cases have jumped 50 percent. Now the Pentagon has received an $11 million grant to study the effectiveness of a new drug on military vets. The drug, DCS, is thought to get rid of fearful memories and get the trama out of war. Doctor Jeff Kaye, blogger and TruthOut contributor joins us to discuss this new drug.
