I ask these questions in light of your stated purpose:
Are you aware the the VA has ruled that three Okinawa Veterans have a service connected exposure to herbicides including agent orange on Okinawa?
Given that project 112 veterans get priority group 6 VA status, are you aware of the following: The test program, which began in fall 1962 and which was funded at least through fiscal year 1963, was considered by the Chemical Corps to be “an ambitious one.” The tests were designed to cover “not only trials at sea, but Arctic and tropical environmental tests as well.” (54) The tests, presumably, were conducted at what research officers designated, but did not name, “satellite sites.” (55) These sites were located both in the continental United States and in foreign countries. The tests conducted there were aimed at both human, animal, and plant reaction to BW. It is known that tests were undertaken in Cairo, Egypt, Liberia, in South Korea, and in Japan’s satellite province of Okinawa in 1961, or earlier. (56) [This was at least one year prior to the creation of Project 112.]
The Okinawa anti-crop research project may lend some insight to the larger projects 112 sponsored. BW experts in Okinawa and “at several sites in the Midwest and south:”conducted in 1961 “field tests” for wheat rust and rice blast disease. These tests met with “partial success” in the gathering of data, and led, therefore, to a significant increase in research dollars in fiscal year 1962 to conduct additional research in these areas. The money was devoted largely to developing “technical advice on the conduct of defoliation and anti-crop activities in Southeast Asia.” (57) By the end of fiscal year 1962, the Chemical Corps had let or were negotiating contracts for over one thousand chemical defoliants. (58) The Okinawa tests evidently were fruitful. (59)
Factories of Death: Japanese Biological Warfare, 1932-1945, and the American cover up By Sheldon Harris http://www.scribd.com/doc/91284707/Factories-of-Death
Chemical Anti crop agent of 1940s-50s-early 1960 was 50% agent LNA (2,4-D)+ 50% agent LNB (2,4,5-T)= Agent LNX which later became agent orange.
Covert Chemical, Biological, Radiological anti communist methods were conducted at the counterinsurgency school on Okinawa. BW agents for anti-crop included were Rice blast, wheat stem rust , rye stem rust, nemotodes, insects. etc. Mycotoxin (yellow rain known to be used in SE Asia) is a toxin made by rice blast and wheat stem fungi. Japanese were involved in growing it at Rocky Mountain Arsenal during this time period and "a red mold disease" was field tested in Tokyo and attributed to contaminated rice.
If you want the Documentation for any thing above, just ask, and leave the thread open. I'll prove you wrong, politely and constructively if you will allow me.
