In Reply.—The information presented by
Dr Rolicka in her article1 and the additional
information provided in her letter refute the alleged waging of biological
warfare by the United States during the Korean War beyond any reasonable doubt.
Rolicka's article discusses that "many specific examples of black propaganda
were discovered that contained false information and lies discrediting the
United States. The mechanism of lies, which convinced the Korean population
that bacteriological warfare was going on and that the only way not to become
victims of the United States' inhuman cruelty was to fight, are shown in this
article."1 Our article agrees that this
episode demonstrated the propaganda value of false allegations of biological
warfare. The phrase "regardless of veracity," as used in our article, was
not intended to imply that the allegations of biological warfare had any credibility.
