KT spotted this: Laos Government Continues to Hunt Former CIA Secret Army. JWR’s comment: Unless they’ve been covertly re-supplied (which I doubt), the fact that they are still mainly using US-made weapons is indicative that they have been fighting defensively in a conservative fashion, rather than offensively.
