“Prince of Death” Road Trip-Khun Sa

November 09, 2007 | | Comments 0

“Khun Sa”. The name strikes fear in some, admiration in others.  Was he a freedom fighter as his admirers claim?  Or was he the biggest and most famous drug lord in S.E. Asia as claimed by the U.S, Drug Enforcement Administration (As reported in this 1994 video Khun Sa – Opium Warlord of the World – Burma)

Khun Sa died in Burma on 26 October 2007.  Before being driven from Thailand he made his home and trained his armies in the town of Thoed Thai, Thailand. Hearing of his death and a planned memorial service, what should a former Narcotics Unit Commander do?  Head for Thoed Thai of course………
