Question by charly: Was Japan close on our heels in the production of an atomic bomb? (If not, explain why it is reported that?
they exploded one, resulting from their research at Hungdam, Korea, but totally covered up by our government.)
All traces of the facility were destroyed, so there’d be no evidence left.
I saw this report very recently as a documentary, but I can’t remember which one. (This is said so that some will not say that I conjured this up).
Did anyone else see the documentary??
I’d like to know if the whole program was a hoax…

Whatever you saw this on should not be called a documentary by any stretch of the imagination. The Japanese were nowhere close to developing a nuclear weapon during the war. What may be clouding the issue for you is the fact that they did have a working biological weapons program near Harbin at Pingfan (I believe that’s the name) in Manchuria. They produced and tested (on human subjects) a wide range of biological agents at Pingfan and used some in action during the Sino-Japanese War,euphemistically referred to as the “China Incident”. The facilities were leveled by the Japanese near the end of the war. Some of the scientists involved were captured by the Soviets, some by the western allies. Most of the latter avoided being prosecuted for war crimes by sharing their “research” with the United States and presumably others.
