While Washington contemplates "first strikes" against those nations unilaterally identified as the "Axis of Evil" and said to be stockpiling weapons of mass destruction, this controversial and timely book proves that the United States itself has been the most notorious practitioner of chemical and biological warfare since blankets laced with smallpox were given to Native Americans 250 years ago.
The editors of this book, William Schaap and Ellen Ray, are two prominent U.S. authorities on the CIA. This well-documented book backgrounds several cases of development and use by the United States of chemical-biological warfare, from Agent Orange in Vietnam to the Gulf War syndrome of the 1990s.
In their introduction, the editors offer an up-to-the-minute analysis of current events concerning the issue of biochemical weapons and the "war on terror."
Among the contributors are:
Robert Lederer (WBAI/Pacifica Radio journalist)
Tod Ensign (director of Citizen Soldier and veterans’ rights advocate)
Dr. Meryl Nass (expert on anthrax and biological warfare who has testified several times to U.S. Congress)
William Schaap and Ellen Ray were co-founders of Covert Action Quarterly , the authoritative magazine which has been a multiple award-winner of "Project Censored" prizes for its decades of groundbreaking investigative reporting. William Schaap is a New York attorney, who has worked with the Center for Constitutional Rights, and has testified as an expert witness on the CIA and intelligence matters in Congressional and UN hearings, as well as federal, state and foreign courts.
