Oh. Well that should make for an interesting documentary:
What? No 60s jingles providing a poppy soundtrack for the B52 bombers as they raze the countryside? What the hell kind of documentary is this?
update: The Al Jazeera report that stirred up said documentary, when Tony Birtley became the first Western journalist to visit said Hmong in 30 odd years, is on youtube. Reading some more general background on the silly bickering over what to do with the people we armed and trained to fight our colonial enterprises for us might be advisable.
My inclination is, being as some in the Laotian government are still understandably irate with all our fantastic enterprises leveling their country and the Hmong's services rendered in that disaster, to just send the rest of our drug running terrorists to Sheboygan, with their compatriots.
