Why does the truth not help my cause?
Look at the pieces, please explain to me why the border was caused to be
This was not the lobbing of a minor mortar shell at the outpost that I can see
two hundred meters from my window, it was an artillery barage that started at
dawn and lasted twenty minutes.
Are you familiar with Paul Lewis who lived in Keng Tung?
Are you familiar that the CIA was also in Keng Tung.
I have reliable information that Paul Lewis was CIA.
I also have reliable information that CIA bought drugs in the Keng Tung region
while Pau Lewis was there.
As long as the bridge and road and economic development in this region are
blocked, people the like the Akha, who have little other opportunity, will be
producing opium and heroin which has little to no market value here. Yet
heroin has great market value in the US. So whose interest is it to keep the
Can I prove that the CIA is now buying drugs in this area?
Could I call witnesses who know that the CIA was buying drugs in Keng Tung in
Yes, I could.
So this is not inuendo.
As well, there is absolutely NO LOCAL LOGIC as to why the army would want this

As well, we are fully aware that the CIA is in Thailand, since Bill Young, son
of the missionary Gordon Young from Burma, with the American Baptists, is a
CIA employee in ChiangMai, mentioned often in the book, "The Politics of
Heroin" as someone involved with heroin in Laos during the vietnam war.
Wasn't SIL flying some pretty fancy planes in South America provided by the
CIA as mentioned by "Thy Will Be Done"?
Incredible suffering is caused by this bridge closure.
Admiral Blair is not here to open it, nor is anyone else.
By the way, people in the CIA told me that they prefer the border closed.
