The terrible crimes of Japan's secret Unit 731 would make anyone's blood run cold. Thousands of people were used as test subjects for the development of biological weapons. The subjects were injected with cholera, typhoid, anthrax and bubonic plague, to be later dissected alive. The unit's ideologist, Shiro Ishii, and most of his associates were never punished. They became practising physicians or scientists. Watch our film to find out why.
Watch "Death Factories" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
So why were "Shiro Ishii, and most of his associates [were] never punished"? Because they were co-oppted into the Pentagon's own biological weapons program! Much like Nazi rocketeers were absorbed into the USAF missile program.
