Dark secret


In the words of Princeton Lyman, the former U.S. ambassador to South Africa, ‘Basson proved to be a combination of Dr. Strangelove and Walter Mitty.’  D. John Tuter, who managed one of Project Coast’s front companies, testified at Bassons’s trial ‘Walter Basson was Project Coast---end of story.’

Now then, to get up-to-speed, read this short report from FAS.org: Dr. Death and do some further research and write a succinct report that details Project Coast.  Your report should be provocative and take into consideration the following:

  • Details of Project Coast:  its inception, history, and shroud of secrecy, compartmentalization and organizational autonomy.  
  • What biological agents did scientists research and test?
  • Walter Basson was a cardiologist, a physician---you know, “first do no harm”---so, how appropriate was the nom de guerre for Dr. Basson, Dr. Death?  Is he South Africa’s Dr. Josef Mengele? Who was Dr. Daan Goosen?  Where does Nelson Mandela fit in?
  • Is South Africa a signatory on the BWC?  If so, when?
  • In the context of this conference, where is South Africa today? Wrap-up with a summary paragraph and whether something like this can happen again, or perhaps it's happening now?
