Maury,Despite John2's statement in his last email, I do not believe there is any compelling evidence to indicate it was used, only circumstantioal evidence of the sort that appeals to conspiracy theorists. Even the rebuttal article I believe that Trish posted, while insightful, relies largely on the theory that the US had the means and the motive. I disagree on a variety of levels. Fisrt, Anthrax as a weapon is difficult to make and use. The US Anthrax pilot facility produced miniscule quantities and the industrial plant at Vigo never entered production. Delivery means were not satisfactorily solved until the mid to late 50's (post Korea). The other thing that most of these stories ignore is that the US focused its effort on mostly non-fatal diseases, for which we had vaccines, Tularemia and Q-Fever being the first. The method of delivery and storage was incredibbly complex (we are talking refrigeration vans here sportsfans), again, not satisfactorily resolved during te Korean war. I recommend that you rev
iew the wealth of open source literature on the US bio program. That's about all I can really say on this. Hope this doesn't cloud (sort of bio pun there ;)) the Korean war bio issue too much.
