CIA Legend Dies

Death of a dirty fighter
By Richard S Ehrlich


BANGKOK - Anthony A "Tony Poe" Poshepny, a decorated former official of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who collected enemy ears, dropped decapitated human heads from the air on to communists and stuck heads on spikes, was buried on the weekend in California.

"Hearts & Minds" you can't beat it!

He took ears, heads and probably other body parts - but he could not take their hearts.

I don't think there will be any wailing in the streets if Vietnam.

Auld Yin -- don't be so po-faced. How can you not admire a man who comes out with:

"We flew in real low, in front of that bastard's house, and I threw the head so it bounced right on his porch and into his front door".

Get some!!

Seems like this Poshepny character was a loose canon. It is one thing to brag and celebrate about what this thug did, it is a totally different thing to accept him as a hero because he is not.

Actually J_W, my reply was directed at Trippy, whose love for the absurd is truly amazing.

I saw the link. The guy should have died in jail.

I have deleted the response I started to to this when I realised that the comment came from someone who is still in the trees.

Un-Necessary, inneffective, and very distasteful

He was right about the need to train indiginous forces, but I much prefer the way the Green berets did it with the Montagnards.
