The great betrayal of Laos’ Hmong tribesmen

Nov. 17, 1999: WND broke the international story of the betrayal of Laos’ Hmong tribesmen, recruited as CIA Special Forces soldiers to fight side-by-side with Americans during the Vietnam war.

Until WND’s roving international correspondent Anthony C. LoBaido spent a year traveling throughout Thailand and Laos, at considerable personal risk, documenting the plight of the Hmong, no other news organization worldwide has been willing or able to document this important story.

“In this age of global media, who wonders at how this final liquidation can be taking place? It is a symbol of the agenda of the United Nations, Clinton administration and U.S. State Department – hatred of Christians and anti-Communists,” charged Dr. Michael Korpi, an award-winning filmmaker interviewed by LoBaido.
