I never wrote anywhere that OSS Team Deer was complicit, you are making that up; and yes, the incident I mention happened in Laos where Sassi (not Stassi) operated.
The OSS team did not just treat Uncle Ho; it also shot at and killed some French soldiers that were after him.
The OSS team that treated HCM for tuberculosis in August 1945 was 'Team Deer'.
Ho Chi Minh was nowhere near Laos in 1945. It would have been impossible for French soldiers to be 'after him''.
As I say, confused in time, place and also in things you have said.
