The Most Secret Place on Earth
the CIA's Covert War in Laos/

Thursday, Oct 20th, in Cambridge [please download flyer 

The Vietnam War was the most intensely televised war ever. However, next 
door in neighboring Laos, the longest and largest air war in human 
history was underway, which eventually made Laos the most bombed country 
on earth. The Secret War was the largest operation ever conducted by the 
CIA, yet to this day, hardly anyone knows anything about it.

Critics call it the biggest war crime of the Vietnam War era and point 
to striking similarities to the present conflicts in Iraq and 
Afghanistan; similarities that were tested and set in motion back in 
Laos in the 1960s.

In */The Most Secret Place On Earth/*, key players of the Secret War-- 
former CIA agents, American pilots, Laotian fighters and war reporters 
--- take us on a journey into the physical heart of the conflict: Top 
secret Long Cheng, where the CIA built its clandestine headquarters in 1962.

"/Laos was the progenitor of the way America fights its wars in the 21st 
century. Outsourcing the war to private companies, gathering public 
support by falsifying intelligence and documents, embedded journalism 
and automated warfare including the use of so-called 'smart weapons', 
all these methods were first tested in Laos/." ~ Marc Eberle, film director

"/An intelligence service is the ideal vehicle for a conspiracy/."  
~Allen Dulles

"/But what counter-insurgency really comes down to is the protection of 
the capitalists back in America, their property and their privileges. US 
national security, as preached by US leaders, is the security of the 
capitalist class in the US, not the security of the rest of the 
people./" ~ Philip Agee, CIA case agent, author of /Inside the Company: 
CIA Diary/

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
