I know exactly who he is referring to. No, they are not officers, they are
civilians who ran the program in the late 50's until the end of offensive Bio
research in 69-70. The US did not weaponize anthrax during the Korean war,
not did they have any successful bio agents weaponized until late in 53, even
then, they were generally non-lethal diseases, like Tularemia and Q-fever.
Since this time period is outside of the 50-53 time period, I'll just leave
it at that.
