"The possible use of biological weapons intelligence gained from Unit 731 by the United States
can be seen in reports written during the Korean War.108 Several governments including the Democratic People’s
Republic of Korea, China, and the Soviet Union, stated publicly in 1951-1952 that the Pentagon was engaging in
germ warfare on a large scale.109
Chinese film footage showed U.S. military shells releasing numerous insects such
as fleas and spiders in snow banks during the middle of winter.110
Laboratory tests on these insects by an
Independent Scientific Team investigating reports of germ warfare revealed the presence of bubonic plague
In 1952, a captured American flier named Colonel Frank H. Schwable confessed to the Independent
Scientific Team that he had used his plane to scatter germ bombs in North Korea.112
Also in 1952, John W. Powell,
an American journalist, reported in the English language China Monthly Review:
The American invaders, by systematic spreading of smallpox, cholera and plague germs over North Korea
have shocked and horrified the entire world.
Since VJ Day Japanese war criminals turned into ‘experts’
have been working for the Americans in developing bacteriological warfare.113
In response to his report, Powell was brought before a congressional “un-American activities” committee for
supporting Korea’s BW accusations against the United States.114 He was charged with thirteen counts of sedition.
Formal grand jury charges were brought against him on April 25, 1956, but after the lawyers for the defense started
to subpoena the State Department and CIA for documents that the United States did indeed use BW, the Department
of Defense told the prosecution to back off the case.
The trial ended abruptly in 1961 as the case against Powell was
dropped by order of President Kennedy.115

Did CIA Experiment LSD on French Town?
By CHRISTOPHE SCHPOLIANSKY
PARIS, March 23, 2010
To some Americans, Pont-Saint-Esprit may be known as the birthplace of Michel Bouvier, a cabinetmaker, who was the great-grandfather of John Vernou Bouvier III, father of former U.S. first lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Today, 59 years after the event, an American journalist thinks he can shed some light on this strange episode in the life of this charming little village. In his book "A Terrible Mistake," Hank Albarelli claims it was the CIA which plunged Pont-Saint-Esprit into madness as the American agency secretly tested the effects of a hallucinogenic drug, possibly LSD, on its population.
The book, which came out in the U.S. three months ago, is a 12-year-long research by the author on the murder in 1953 of Frank Olson, an Army biochemist working on the CIA's secret Cold War mind-control experiments.
