Seeding the Homeland with Mutants

Most world governments will have nothing to do with GMO food crops.
Most U.S. citizens don’t want to eat the stuff.
Yet, without the people’s consent or due process, poison transgenic plants have been scattered over ‘public’ lands:
ONE-THIRD OF U.S. WILDLIFE REFUGES USE GM CROPS IN SOUTHEAST
Genetically Modified Seeds Okayed by Obama Fish & Wildlife Service Director Pick Hamilton

Washington, DC – One-third of National Wildlife Refuges in
the Southeast U.S. are growing genetically modified crops with approval
from the official tapped by the Obama White House to head the U.S. Fish
& Wildlife Service, according to agency records obtained today by
Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). Planting GM
crops on a wildlife refuge is illegal without full prior environmental
and public review under a federal court ruling won by PEER and allied
groups last year, but none of the Southeastern refuges have undertaken
the required reviews.

[…] In the Southeast Region, headed by Sam Hamilton, named by the
Obama administration as its intended nominee to lead the entire FWS,
records show:

One in three (41 of 128 total refuges) are growing GM crops;
No refuge has been denied permission for GM crops; and
The basis for Hamilton’s Regional Office approval typically cites farmers’ profitability or their preference for GM crops.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Sleet wrote that the Fish and Wildlife agency erred by failing to conduct environmental studies to determine whether farming with genetically modified crops at the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware was compatible with conservation and habitat preservation.
