    Article - En anglais

    In the television series Korea the Unknown War produced jointly by Thames Television (London) and WGBH (Boston) ] in 1990, General Matthew Ridgway, Commander in Chief of United Nations forces during the Korean War, called the accusations that the United States waged bacteriological warfare « black propaganda. » The charges discredited the United States and, despite denials and many international discussions, have not been completely refuted until new.

    Following studies in archives previously not available for research and after uncovering new sources, 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 paper.
