To the Editor.—Based on the Biological
Agents as Weapons issue of JAMA,1 it appears
that American medicine had been sold to the Pentagon in a most bizarre presentation
of the problems of chemical and biological warfare. Checking the issue date,
August 6, 1997, I found, to my total disbelief, that I was reading an anticommemorative
to Hiroshima—the wholesale massacre of civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki
on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively.
