The James Michener novel The BRIDGES AT TOKO-RI about a handsome Navy pilot who dies in Korea was made into a film with William Holden and Grace Kelly in the leads. It proved boffo at box office. One of the many ways Western cinema distorts history and glamorizes Washington’s crimes.

uza2-zombienationThe evidence for American BW deployment during the Korean War is overwhelming. Yet, the denial machine of the security state continues today. Recently, a Woodrow Wilson Institute scholar, Milton Leitenberg, has reworked his theory that the entire Korean War BW affair was a giant communist hoax cooked up by Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Zhou Enlai to tar brush the US into ceasefire negotiations. Leitenberg’s conspiracy theory is a B-movie plot, not plausible given his questionable source material and the historical record. Nevertheless, this quasi-official spin demonstrates clearly the extension across time to which the state denial apparatus can reach. The ongoing denial of US war crimes committed during the Korean War has been an enormous stumbling block to the normalization of relations between the US and North Korea.

  1. I also highly recommend a recent book by Dave Chaddock who rather exhaustively researched this subject and found considerable evidence that the allegations of BW by the Chinese and North Koreans was indeed correct. Naturally the US government did everything they could to cover up this obscene crime.

    However, I think the whole series of incidents inspired the CIA to continue with mind altering experiments using LSD and similar drugs to create their own “Manchurian candidates”.
