Wikileaks Document Pushes Genetically Modified Food for African Countries

EINNEWS, December 1---Buried deep in the Wikileaks files is the U.S. government's objective to steer many African countries toward the use of genetically modified agriculture.

In a document outlining priorities for intelligence gathering in Burundi, Rwanda, the Republic of Congo and others in the region, one objective is "Government acceptance of genetically modified food and propagation of genetically modified crops."

The objective is included among information the U.S. State Department would like intelligence to discover about local government agricultural policies., yield statistics, infrastructure improvements, data on deforestation and desertification, water issues and invasive species.

The U.S. State Department has been advocating genetically modified foods as one of the responses to world hunger.
