Re: KW KLO Operations - ROK Comments
I missed Miskesh's post somehow. And God Knows I'd be the last to PLUG
MY BOOK, but . . . both Apollo's Warriors and In the Devil's Shadow include
the story of a B-26 navigator who parachuted agents (including an unknown
American) into Manchuria. I suppose the bit about the American (physical
description in book) will raise eyebrows. I didn't intend to include the
story in the book at the time, because I had no other way to corroborate what
I was being told.
But a year later, while researching in the classified archives of an
agency best known by an acronym (I'm not on their Christmas card A-list at
the moment, so I'm not eager to further antagonize them), I read in its files
a near identical description of the Manchurian base camp. Remarkably, in an
interview with a USAF Crash Rescue Boat crewman still another year later, and
with no prompting from me because it was the last thing on my mind, this
SpecOps vet begins describing the same agent; to a T. Why? Because he also
inserted the agent onto the Manchurian coastline.
It's quite a story. To this day I do not know the agent's name, or
whether he was military or CIA.
