10/2/20 Jeffrey Kaye: Proof of American Biological Warfare in Korea

Scott interviews Jeffrey Kaye about his bombshell report on U.S. war crimes during the Korean War. For decades, Kaye says, the narrative advanced by America and the UN has been that although Japan, our ally, is known to have conducted experiments in chemical and biological warfare, any claims that the U.S. engaged in such activities are nothing more than communist propaganda. Even today, anyone alleging that America used such weapons in Korea is labeled a conspiracy theorist. But Kaye has now meticulously combed through a trove of recently-released documents from American intelligence that finally provide proof of what some have long suspected: after World War II the U.S. eagerly took advantage of the research by Japan’s Unit 731 and others, and eventually put some of it into practice during the late stages of the Korean War. Kaye calls these actions war crimes of the very highest degree, right up with anything the Nazis did. Much like with nuclear weapons, the disastrous effects of biological warfare linger for generations afterward, and today communities in Southeast Asia continue to suffer outbreaks of diseases like bubonic plague. Kaye hopes his reporting will finally start to change the story of America’s crimes.
