COMMENT: In past programs, we have briefly noted that military  and [ostensibly] civilian  programs officially involved with “epidemic prevention” might conceal clandestine biological warfare applications designed to create epidemics.
The official distinction between “offensive” and “defensive” biological warfare research is academic.
In that context, one should note that the official title of Unit 731, the notorious Japanese biological warfare unit was “the Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Department of the Kwantung Army.”
Noteworthy in that general context is the observation by Jonathan King (professor of molecular biology at MIT), that Pentagon research into the application of genetic engineering to biological warfare could be masked as vaccine research, which sounds “defensive.”
In FTR #1130 , we noted the role of four-star general Gustave Perna in Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed,” instituted by General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Whether the program serves as cover for military research seems a reasonable question to ask, under the circumstances.
Unit 731 (Japanese : 731部隊, Hepburn : Nana-san-ichi Butai), also referred to as Detachment 731, the 731 Regiment, Manshu Detachment 731, The Kamo Detachment, :198 Ishii Unit,  Ishii Detachment  or the Ishii Company, was a covert biological  and chemical warfare  research and development  unit of the Imperial Japanese Army  that undertook lethal human experimentation  during the Second Sino-Japanese War  (1937–1945) of World War II . It was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by Imperial Japan . Unit 731 was based at the Pingfang  district of Harbin , the largest gas chamber in the Japanese puppet state  of Manchukuo  (now Northeast China ), and had active branch offices throughout China and Southeast Asia.
It was officially known as the Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Department of the Kwantung Army (関東軍防疫給水部本部, Kantōgun Bōeki Kyūsuibu Honbu). . . .

. . . . King, who has chaired the microbial physiology study section for the NIH, believes that without intensive independent scrutiny, the Penton is free to obscure its true goals.
“The Defense Department appears to be pursuing many narrow, applied goals that are by nature offensive, such as the genetic ‘improvement’ of BW agents,” King says. “But to achieve political acceptability, they mask these intentions under forms of research, such as vaccine development, which sound defensive. . . .
