Secret War in Laos Documentary Film: Laotian Civil War and U.S. Government Involvement
 
24:21
The Laotian Civil War (1953--75) was a fight between the Communist Pathet Lao (including many North Vietnamese of Lao ancestry, and the Royal Lao Government in which both the political rightists and leftists received heavy external support for a proxy war from the global Cold War superpowers. Among United States Central Intelligence Agency Special Activities Division US and Hmong veterans of the conflict, it is known as the Secret War.[8] The Kingdom of Laos was a covert theatre for battle for the other belligerents during the Vietnam War. The Franco--Lao Treaty of Amity and Association signed 22 October 1953, transferred remaining French powers -- except control of military affairs -- to the Royal Lao Government -- which did not include any representatives from the Lao Issara anti-colonial armed nationalist movement[9] — and otherwise establishing Laos as an independent member of the French Union.[10] The following years were marked by a rivalry between the neutralists under Prince Souvanna Phouma, the right wing under Prince Boun Oum of Champassak, and the left-wing Lao Patriotic Front under Prince Souphanouvong and future Prime Minister Kaysone Phomvihane. A number of attempts were made to establish coalition governments, and a "tri-coalition" government was finally seated in Vientiane. The fighting in Laos involved the North Vietnamese Army, American, Thai, and South Vietnamese forces directly and through irregular proxies in a battle for control over the Laotian Panhandle. The North Vietnamese Army occupied the area for use as the Ho Chi Minh Trail supply corridor and staging area for offensives into South Vietnam. There was a second major theatre of action on and near the northern Plaine des Jarres. The North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao emerged victorious in 1975, as part of the general communist victory in Indochina that year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laotian_Civil_War

History of The Secret War in Laos
 
07:02
In The Lingering War, Delilah Napier takes an historic look at the effects of the Secret War in Laos. Its citizens, most born decades after the war ended, confront unexploded bombs on a daily basis. First-person interviews with Vietnam War veteran Lee Thorn, activist and whistle-blower Fred Branfman, as well as representatives of NGOs in Laos paint a picture of the emotional and physical toll inflicted by war. This teen-produced documentary resulted from An Investigative Journalism Adventure to Laos, a program of Friendship Tours World Travel and Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City, California, led by Emmy Award-winning journalist Jeff MacIntyre (http://www.contentmediagroup.com), artist/educator Cheri Gaulke, and history teacher Alethea Paradis.

Secret War in Laos [1080 resolution] ~ Hmong History ~ Project 404 aka "Palace Dog"
 
18:03
"Far above the Plain of Jars, And the mighty Mekong River. High atop the mountains of Laos, Generations of Hmong lived a peaceful, happy life. Then war tore the country apart, Bombs rained down, For ten years, Laos was bombed every 8 minutes. Laos became the most heavily bombed country on earth. The CIA supplied weapons, training, and salaries, And the Hmong provided the soldiers and the casualties. Over 10,000 Hmong died, a rate 100 times higher than that of the U.S. in Vietnam. Before learning to drive cars, Hmong learned to fly, More than half the Hmong fighter pilots were killed. The Hmong had entered the space age, A generation of children thought rice came from the sky. By 1975 the country was destroyed, and everything was lost, Entire villages were evacuated by air. The only choice was to flee across the Mekong to safety in Thailand, To finally depart their beloved Laos, And start a new life in America. In addition to the U.S. Hmong also resettled in other countries, including: France, French Guiana, Canada, Australia, Argentina, and Germany. Many Hmong, after spending years in refugee camps in Thailand, were forcefully repatriated back to Laos." Video/photo/music editing and text narration by Cory Jasperson. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a historical video / photo compilation made in iMovie that gives a basic overview of the Secret War in Laos and its impact on the Hmong people--prepared and presented in one of the breakout sessions of the 2013 Regional LDS (Mormon) Hmong Conference entitled "Listen to My Story" held in Sacramento, California. After years of many requests for copies of the video presentation, finally posting it online for everyone to view and share. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ General Vang Pao, Nais Phoos Vaj Pov, Long Tieng, Looj Ceeb, VP, CIA, USAID, Hmongstory 40, Hmong Story, Hmongstory.org, Tso Rog Nplog Teb, Air America, Tragic Mountains, Ravens, T-28, Lee Lue, Luang Prabang, Plain of Jars, Lub Tiaj Rhawv Zeb, Lav 52, Lav Tsib Caug Ob, Xieng Khouang, Keeb Kwm Hmoob (Liv Xwm), Hmong Guerilla Fighters, Hmong Army, Special Guerrilla Unit SGU, Angelfire

Radio producer Peter Lang-Stanton thought his father was a paper-pushing bureaucrat in the State Department. Then one day, his father revealed his double- life as a spy. Much of his father’s past was a lie; he never fought in the Vietnam War, as he said. Instead, he was involved in a covert mission in 1960s Laos under his codename: Pig-Pen. Through deep interviews with ex-CIA and a former Laotian soldier, Peter Lang-Stanton tells a story of lies and half-truths, of pride and regret. Produced by Peter Lang-Stanton and Nick Farago.

President Obama recently visited the nation of Laos in Southeast Asia to acknowledge the deadly legacy of what has become known as the CIA’s Secret War. The Minnesota Memorial to Special Forces in Laos was dedicated Saturday, June 11, on the grounds of the Minnesota State Capitol. The memorial is a tribute to the men and women who served in alliance with the United States Armed Forces during the Secret War in Laos from 1961 to 1975. The United States Secret War in Laos supported the Royal Lao Government against the Patheo Lao in order to prohibit traffic along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. During the war, the United States heavily bombed Laos with over 580,000 bombing missions. The war displaced hundreds of thousands of Laos civilians.

8mm HOME MOVIES FROM THE SECRET WAR IN LAOS  75022
 
22:58
These extraordinary Super 8mm home movies from the Vietnam War, come from a member of the "Ravens". The Raven Forward Air Controllers, also known simply as The Ravens, were fighter pilots used for forward air control in a covert operation in conjunction with the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States in Laos during America's Vietnam War. The Ravens provided direction for most of the air strikes against communist Pathet Lao targets and People's Army of Vietnam's infiltrators in support of the Laotian Hmong guerrilla army. SCENE #1: (00:00:00) T-28 on ramp at Pakse, loaded with Napalm. … (00:26:10) T-28 taking off at Pakse. SCENE #2: (01:37:00) T-28’s bombing target on Bolavens Plateau. … (03:38:05) T-28 shooting rockets on target. Target is a PL (Pathet Lao) village. Ravens did not direct airstrikes on villages, but would monitor the strikes to make sure the Lao Pilots were hitting the village they wanted to target. However, the Ravens had no control over the T-28’s. SCENE #3: (04:59:10) PL antiaircraft locations (the round holes in the ground). SCENE #4: (05:50:10) T-28’s on target on the Eastern foot of the Bolavens Plateau. (06:47:10) When 2 smokes (WP’s, Willie Petes, White Phosphorus) are used, the fighters are to drop their ordnance anywhere between the 2 smokes. … (07:01:15) As here, the 2 smokes mark the area for the dropping of CBU’s (Cluster Bomb Units). … (07:26:10) Here, 500# bombs are dropped. … (07:48:00) Here, Napalm is dropped. … (08:52:00) More 500# bombs. … During these bombing runs, T-28’s are shown making their run-in on target. … (10:05:00) Another CBU run. This is a good shot of the CBU’s. SCENE #5: (11:03:00) Saravane, Laos, burning. Saravane was overrun by the N. Vietnamese, who set the town on fire. SCENE #6: (12:06:05) Passengers at Saravane Airport waiting to load onto plane. SCENE # 7: (13:20:00) School children in Saravane, Laos, in marketplace. As always, they all want their picture taken. SCENE #8: (13:59:05) Shop along road in Laotian town and the pedestrian traffic, bicycles, and cyclos (taxis), women carrying firewood on their back, etc. A lot of “village activity”. … (16:25:05) Laotian soldiers in café for coffee. … (16:45:00) Boys playing soccer at school. SCENE #9: (18:31:00) Military compound at Saravane, Laos, with women walking down road. Gasoline drums are seen lined up on the ground ready to be used to refuel aircraft. All refueling is done manually with a hand-pump. Airline Stewardess and Pilot are seen on ramp at Saravane. … (20:07:05) Royal Lao Air Force plane landing at Saravane. … (20:51:05) Konty (Raven 58’s GIB [Guy-in-the-Backseat]) is shown at Saravane holding Raven 58’s Chicom SKS that was given to him by General Phasouk, the MR-4 Commander (Military Region). He is standing in front of the Lao Airlines sign at Saravane. SCENE #10: (21:19:10) Raven 58’s O-1 and looking toward the mist-shrouded mountains south of Saravane. When flying over the northern part of the Bolavens Plateau, breaking out below the clouds, it was a very “prehistoric”-type site. In fact, unknown at the time, Ravens spotted what would eventually be determined to be a previously unknown huge water buffalo. It turned out to be an unknown species that is about twice the size of water buffalos commonly seen in the rice fields. … (21:45:10) A village along the runway at Saravane complete with water buffalo (the normal size).

Secret War in Laos: Bombing Attacks, School Activities, Military Training of the Pathet Lao
 
25:05
The Pathet Lao (Lao ປະເທດລາວ, "Lao Nation") was a communist political movement and organization in Laos, formed in the mid-20th century. More: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=ea096feca83152ac12cd4283e35507aa&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=pathet%20lao The group was ultimately successful in assuming political power after the Laotian Civil War. The Pathet Lao were always closely associated with Vietnamese communists. During the civil war, it was effectively organized, equipped and even led by the army of North Vietnam. The Pathet Lao were the Laotian equivalent of North Vietnam's Vietnam People's Army, South Vietnam's Viet Minh and later Viet Cong, and Cambodia's Khmer Rouge.[2] Eventually, the term became the generic name for Laotian communists. The political movement of the Pathet Lao was called first the Lao People's Party (1955--1972) and later the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (1972--present). Key Pathet Lao leaders include Prince Souphanouvong, Kaysone Phomvihane, Phoumi Vongvichit, Nouhak Phoumsavanh and Khamtay Siphandone. In the 1960s, more attempts at neutrality agreements and coalition government were attempted but as North Vietnam had no intention of withdrawing from Laos, these agreements all failed. By the middle 1960s, the country had fallen into proxy warfare between pro-US and pro-Vietnamese irregular military groups. In 1968, the Army of North Vietnam launched a multi-division invasion of Laos. The Pathet Lao were pushed to the side in the conflict and reduced to the role of an auxiliary force to the North Vietnamese army. Unable to match the heavy Soviet and Chinese weapons in addition to the numerical strength of the Vietnamese forces, the Royal Lao Army took itself out of the conflict after heavy losses. The communist forces battled the Royal Lao Army, U.S. irregular forces (including Air America and other contract employees and Hmong commandos), and Thai "volunteer" forces in Laos winning effective control in the north and east. The government itself was effectively powerless. The Pathet Lao held hundreds of US "detainees" as prisoners of war during and after the Vietnam War (Second Indochina War). Shortly after the Paris Peace Accords ended US involvement in the Vietnam war, the Pathet Lao and the government of Laos signed a cease-fire agreement, the Vientiane Treaty, in February 1973. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathet_Lao

The museum covers, not so comprehensibly, the history of Laos, from the time of the dinosaurs to the prehistoric paleolithic and neolithic eras , through the Hindu and Buddhist eras, the Siamese invasion, the French colonial period, the communist revolution,Vietnam War era 'secret war' with the US, and the modern Laotian political system.

The film represents the U.S. foreign policy toward Laos and the Central Intelligence Agency's involvement in the Vietnam conflict. About the CIA: The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is an independent civilian intelligence agency of the United States government. It is an executive agency and reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence, with responsibility for providing national security intelligence assessment to senior United States policymakers. The primary function of the CIA is to collect information about foreign governments, corporations, and individuals, and to advise public policymakers, but it does conduct tactical operations and carries out covert operations, and exerts foreign political influence through its tactical divisions, such as the Special Activities Division. Often, when field operations are organized, the U.S. military carry these operations out on behalf of the agency while the CIA oversees them. Intelligence-gathering is performed by non-military commissioned civilian intelligence agents, many of whom are trained to avoid tactical situations.
