Intro­duc­tion: In numer­ous pro­grams and lec­tures, we have dis­cussed the impor­tant, dev­as­tat­ing­ly suc­ces­sive­ly mind con­trol pro­grams engaged in by the mil­i­tary and CIA. Those pro­grams were devel­oped in reac­tion to downed Amer­i­can air­men who–after captivity–gave tes­ti­mo­ny that they had been involved in bio­log­i­cal war­fare attacks against Chi­na and North Korea dur­ing the war.

A superb book about Unit 731–the Japan­ese bio­log­i­cal war­fare unit dur­ing World War II–had a chap­ter in the British edi­tion that was omit­ted in the Amer­i­can edi­tion.

(Sad­ly, the books are out of print, although both the British and Amer­i­can edi­tions are avail­able through used-book ser­vices. Mr. Emory hearti­ly encour­ages lis­ten­ers to obtain the book. Even the Amer­i­can edition–missing this key chapter–is worth­while. Hope­ful­ly, a pub­lish­er will obtain the rights to the book and re-issue it. If so, we will enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly pro­mote the work.)

The chap­ter in the UK edi­tion chron­i­cles the inves­ti­ga­tion into the alle­ga­tions of Amer­i­can BW use dur­ing the Kore­an War, includ­ing cir­cum­stan­tial evi­dence that Unit 731 vet­er­ans and method­ol­o­gy may well have been used in the alleged cam­paign.

That chap­ter is alto­geth­er objec­tive, avoid­ing ide­o­log­i­cal bias toward either side in the con­flict.

Because of that, we found the omis­sion of this chap­ter from the U.S. edi­tion to be sig­nif­i­cant. As the bril­liant Peter Dale Scott not­ed: “The cov­er-up obvi­ates the con­spir­a­cy.”

It is a mat­ter of pub­lic record that Unit 731’s files were incor­po­rat­ed into the U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram, and vet­er­ans of the Unit bequeathed their exper­tise to the Amer­i­cans in exchange from immu­ni­ty from pros­e­cu­tion for war crimes.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis

  1. The pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of a Telepress dis­patch from Bur­ma alleg­ing that key vet­er­ans of Unit 731–including for­mer com­mand­ing offi­cer gen­er­al Shi­ro Ishii–were dis­patched to Korea with ship-borne equip­ment to wage bio­log­i­cal war­fare.
  2. Next, the pro­gram details the con­sid­er­able inter­est on the part of the U.S. com­mand struc­ture in bio­log­i­cal warfare–an inter­est that grew con­sid­er­ably as the war pro­gressed.
  3. A British vet­er­an of the Kore­an War dis­cussed sus­pi­cious activ­i­ty by an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary unit as Chi­nese troops were advanc­ing on UN forces, fol­low­ing that coun­try’s entry into the war. The sol­dier recount­ed: How the U.S. per­son­nel were plac­ing feath­ers in build­ings, while wear­ing face masks; how he had a sus­pi­cious boost­er shot short­ly after encoun­ter­ing the Amer­i­can troops; see­ing hun­dreds of dead Chi­nese troops in a vil­lage, who did not appear to have been shot or wound­ed in any way.
  4. The authors note that Unit 731 often used BW to attack sup­ply routes and that the intro­duc­tion of Sovi­et-built MIGs into the war–forcing U.S. B‑29s to oper­ate at night–may have been a moti­va­tion for the alleged BW attacks.
  5. The pro­gram con­cludes with pre­sen­ta­tion of the sci­en­tif­ic cre­den­tials of the Inter­na­tion­al Sci­en­tif­ic Com­mis­sion inves­ti­gat­ing the alle­ga­tions of bio­log­i­cal war­fare. ” . . . .
