Description

"In 1953, the U.S. Army secretly sprayed thousands of Americans -- including children at a school in the Twin Cities -- with toxic chemicals. (This report) reveals that the Army lied about the aerosol releases in Minneapolis, which were actually part of the Cold War biologial warfare program. Gilbert interviews former students and finds that many had serious medical problems, including high rates of cancer, multiple miscarriages, and children with birth defects."
