Vaccine-A: The Covert Government Experiment that's Killing Our Soldiers.
Northwest Vets for Peace interview Gary Matsumoto, author of "Vaccine-A: The Covert Government Experiment that's Killing Our Soldiers." Vaccine-A uncovers a story of betrayal—the betrayal of the men and women who serve in the armed forces, the betrayal of medical ethics, and the betrayal of the American people by military and civilian leaders sworn to defend and protect. Veteran journalist Gary Matsumoto shows that the worst friendly-fire incident in military history came from something no soldier had any reason to think would harm him: a vaccine administered by the military's own medics.
Dave and Jo Ann look at the flap over the City of Beaverton supporting a Mexican independence celebration and other current local events.
