Old secrets week

Revelations about the 60s, followed by another about the 50s. If as now revealed, the US Government at high levels knew,there is an interesting issue about what if anything Australian records contain about incidents now coming to light in Korea and the US about the early days of the Korean War. According to AP,
"American officers observed, photographed and confidentially reported on.. wholesale executions by their South Korean ally, a secretive slaughter believed to have killed 100,000 or more leftists and supposed sympathizers, usually without charge or trial, in a few weeks in mid-1950."
339 Australians died in the Korean War between 1950-1953.
