Re: CIA Discloses Korean Spy Records
We are talking 1950's here, when racism was still in vogue in America. The
'yellow-bellies', 'niggers' and 'Jews' were deemed sub-humans and very much
expendable by some of the American commanders. According to the History
Channel, Big Mac's 2nd in command was a fascist Franco's follower.
At the Kunu-ri battle, the Turkish Brigade mistook ROKA troops for
"Chinamen" and killed "several" hundred of them as they "came in human
waves" (the poor ROKA soldiers were actually running away from the real
Chinamen). As far as I know no Turks were punished for this friendly fire
incident. Had the Turks mistaken any Yanks for Ruskies and killed them, you
would have heard about it (justifiably so) - but killing friendly gooks was
a different matter.
How come the ROK gov did not say anything about it? Well, that's another
story. According to James Hausman, when Gen. Walker was killed in a
collision with a ROKA truck, Rhee Syngman offered the poor ROKA soldier's
head, but my friend James declined it.
I received an email from an American vet who had witnessed Gen. Walker's
death. He said the official record is not correct, but he refuses to state
what he saw. North Korea says Walker was shot dead by their troops -
another disputed 'fact'.

I have just read this thing about the spies going into NK. I can,t agree
the articles assessment of the good that the people did during that time
The North apparently knew of the number of agents being sent in so How many
troops were tied up in the operations trying to shut a few people down. I
would hate to think of all those units being released to line units. The UN
would probably have a higher death toll. It seems that the people that went
into that situation had there eyes open and knew the risk involved, I
that more than a few people were able to come back home because an enemy
soldier was tied up trying to pin down a small unit that dropped in on their
little party in the North.
The people that were lost and their families should have received some
compensation. I would imagine the United Nation people just said Oh well,
me another man. It seems that is the way most of the cases were not handled
I believe all of the things that went on was a training process because this
kind of war was knew to the Armies, so a lot should have been learned. Over
dead bodies but it still had to be learned to make any progress in the
