                Chapter 7. Told lies too: “The attacks on the Presidential Palace” and “hit US Embassy”.

                                Episode 27.  Communist Viem and Tu Cang gave the untruthful stories:  “The attacks on the Presidential Palace“.

  1. Communist Viem gave the untruthful stories: “The attacks on the Presidential Palace“.
  1. – Versio Larry Berman.

“…Tet 1968 …During the early morning hours of January 31, …Tu Cang was a renowned marksman. “He could shoot K-54 pistols with both hands, firing one shot a second and never missing the target,” said An. He always kept one bullet in his pocket, a bullet that he reserved for himself if necessary.48When the attacks on the Presidential Palace were repulsed, Tu Cang found himself holed up in a house across from the palace: “From my hiding place I could see that in a house directly across from the house that our commandos were defending there was a group of American and puppet officers shouting and directing their soldiers to attack the house. I thought to myself that only if something were done to disrupt the enemy’s deployment of his troops would our commandos be able to escape. However, I also knew that firing a gun is something that an intelligence agent has to weigh extremely carefully, because if an intelligence agent is exposed it is very likely that an entire espionage net that has taken years to develop will suddenly be rendered ineffective. After carefully analyzing the situation, I pulled out my gun, aimed it at two American officers, fired two quick shots, and then immediately pulled back into my hiding place.”49 Tu Cang takes credit for killing the two American officers.…” (Perfect Spy, Chapter 5, Page 10/25)

  1. – Versio Thomas A. Bass.

                “Pretending to be chatting about dogs and cockfights, they were actually sighting targets for the Têt Offeive. Tu Cang proposed attacking the Treasury to get some money. “They only hand out salaries there,” An told him. A better target would be the courthouse, where lots of gold was stored as evidence in the trials of South Viem’s legion of burglars and smugglers. He advised Tu Cang to bring an acetylene torch.

Tu Cang and An isolated twenty targets in Saigon, including the Presidential Palace and the U.S. embassy. Beginning at 2:48 A.M. on Wednesday, January 31, Tu Cang personally led the attack on the palace, where fifteen of the seventeen members on his team were killed outright. He himself barely escaped to the nearby apartment of Tam Thao, where he fired shots out the window and then hid with his two pistols held to his head, vow-ing to kill himself before being captured. When soldiers rushed into the apartment, Tam Thao convinced them that she was a South Viemese loyalist and perhaps even the mistress of the American officer—her boss—whose photo she prominently displayed. Later that morning, Tu Cang and An drove around the city, counting the bodies of the Vietcong soldiers who had died in the attack. (To commemorate the role these two men played in the battle, Tu Cang’s pistols and Pham Xuan An’s Renault are now displayed in the museum of military intelligence at army headquarters in Hanoi. …” (The Spy Who Loved Us, page 196)

                Comment:

  1. Not probably: “nearby apartment of Tam Thao” = “a house across from the palace“?

                Because: “When the attacks on the Presidential Palace were repulsed, Tu Cang found himself holed up in a house across from the palace” and “I pulled out my gun, aimed it at two American officers, fired two quick shots, and then immediately pulled back into my hiding place.”49 Tu Cang takes credit for killing the two American officers.…” = “He himself barely escaped to the nearby apartment of Tam Thao, where he fired shots out the window and then hid with his two pistols held to his head, vow-ing to kill himself before being captured.”

                Never!

  1. Joke:

                “When soldiers rushed into the apartment, Tam Thao convinced them that she was a South Viemese loyalist and perhaps even the mistress of the American officer—her boss—whose photo she prominently displayed. Later that morning, Tu Cang and An drove around the city, counting the bodies of the Vietcong soldiers who had died in the attack.

                The story is impossible!

                Note:

  1. 1. Earlier that morning:Beginning at 2:48 A.M. on Wednesday, January 31, Tu Cang personally led the attack on the palace
  2. Between that morning:He himself barely escaped to the nearby apartment of Tam Thao, , where he fired shots out the window and then hid with his two pistols held to his head, vow-ing to kill himself before being captured. When soldiers rushed into the apartment, Tam Thao convinced them that she was a South Viemese loyalist
  3. Later that morning:Tu Cang and An drove around the city, counting the bodies of the Vietcong soldiers who had died in the attack.

                The story is impossible!

  1. Some versioalso gave the untruthful stories The attacks on the Presidential Palace:

                (Here the story gets a bit vague …)

  1. Version 1: No Tu Cang.

                (Provisional tralation) “…On the second day of Tet Offeiveat 1 o’clock, on Tran Quy CapStreet (now namely Vo Van Tan) there are 3 car tandem towards Le Van Duyet (and now called August Revolution street). Even it was Tet at that moment, around the Independence Palace but still dee mound of sand and barbed newly erected, formed a confidentiality perimeter defeive. After the sand mounds, sharp enough soldiers with helmets, armor, weapo … The convoy entered the intersection of Nguyen Du- Thu Khoa Huan, the soldiers suddenly opened fire crushes a top of guards and volunteers invaded Independence Palace.

                Independence palace’s gates was locked carefully, we must use explosive force to break, but not explosive drug blocks. So the soldiers must climb fences ambush iide. Enemy come to one’sees and massively increases assistance. Unfortunately, due to some dynamite and grenades damaged, 5 soldiers were sacrificed; the remaining team member was arrested after having fought to the last bullet. Shortly after the New Year, the enemy discovered the place of the military forces therefore; they have confiscated their homes, possessio of bourgeois Mai Hong Que, and offered a 2 million for anyone “get his head”.

                Only remaining Mr. Nam Lai, after being besieged by enemy then received orders to retreat anyway to maintain inline. After three days hiding in the trash at Ben Thanh market, He brought his wife and children in Phu Nhuan withdrawal from Saigon, and he continued to coolidate the remaining basis of the commando.

                After being pursued by the enemy, Mr. Nam Lai must flee Quang Ngai (wife’s Countryside) continues to operate. In 1972, he was arrested and imprisoned in Son Tinh by enemy until 1975. He was the takeover of Saigon, either wounded ¼ class (81% health), but he still devoted for the revolution to retirement. In 2002, Tran Van Lai was drawing one’s last breath.

                Comment: 1: No Tu Cang.

  1. “Only remaining Mr. Nam Lai, after being besieged by enemy then received orders to retreat anyway to maintain inline.”?

                “attacks on the Presidential Palace ” but “retreat“?

                Note: “He was the takeover of Saigon, either wounded ¼ class (81% health)”

  1. Tran Van Lai also gave the untruthful stories!

                (Roughly tralated) “Special Army Museum which houses the Hino truck plate number EC-6045. It is the vehicle of entrepreneur Mai Hong Que, who is quite popular among the wealthy in Saigon before 1975, to free up to the Presidential Palace.

                … Thanks to the experience of furnishing worker and his skill, Mr. Nam Lai was engaged in the top of repairman for Royal Cambodian throne, the king’s father Sihanouk praised Huang. In addition to generous bonuses, each worker was granted a right of entry certificates for coming Cambodia anytime without permission.

                This is a “broken amulet” in the lifetime of his secret activities. Thanks to this certificate, he was accepted as an interior, can freely come to the Presidential Palace, and this is also the way to his rise to become entrepreneurs. A cover for activity in the city.

                … In 1966, the organization assigned him to  prepare weapo storage facility for a commando force. He bought three houses of number 287/70 Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street in Ho Chi Minh City and two cars: Citroen NCE-345 number plates and Hino truck bearing plate number EC-6045. Pictures contractors often drive with imprinted paper dragon emptive favorable to him to ship cement, bricks, sand, iron building secret tunnels. In 1967 cellar 30m wide, 2.5m deep secret camouflaged completed, by the end of that year he repeatedly used car plate number EC-6045 carrying 2.5 to of weapo including gu, explosives, ammunition bunker to hide in his house.

                In the attack of 1968 year, 19 soldiers present at No 287/70 get starting weapo. Mr.To Hoai Thanh – Team Head (Ba Thanh) assigned Nam Lai stay resupply weapo to other attacks but Nam Lai firmly suggested to participate in this time because he know the way to entrance in the palace. At 1 hour 30 minutes on 3-1-1968, Mr. Nam Lai drove the car EC-6045 cars pick Ba Thanh up on the way of Tran Quy Cap and turning to Le Van Duyet street (The August Revolution street now) and turning to Nguyen Du street pressed tailgate Independence Palace, after a series of AK gu to kill rifles guard, a soldier rushed to put explosive port. Non- explosion drugs, our soldiers continue Hurdles attack on the palace. Now at that moment the enemy shoot violent, Ba Thanh was hit, before sacrifice, Ba Thanh ask the comrades continue to fight, keep the war of position, only Mr. Nam Lai must come back immediately to resupply weapo, Nam Lai returned home but remotely have seen top secret military siege, while a helicopter heavenly islands and torrential bullets into the house 287/70. He Know that basis were revealed, he ran the Ben Thanh market and then hide in the coal cellar housing 720 Vo Di Nguy (now Nguyen Kiem street, Go Vap ward), then he came to  a central region for his activity.

                After recognizing Nam Lai is soldiers of special task force troops who held weapo shipments hit Independence Palace in Tet of 1968, we pursued the enemy aggressively while offering 2 million reward for anyone who caught him to give the authorities. Until to 1972, Nam Lai was arrested in Quang Ngai but called others name in the paper, this time he make believe that he was crazy, they did not catch anything so they must release  …”

                Comment:

  1. Continue: “attacks on the Presidential Palace ” but “Nam Lai returned home “?

                “Now at that moment the enemy shoot violent, Ba Thanh was hit, before sacrifice, Ba Thanh ask the comrades continue to fight, keep the war of position, only Mr. Nam Lai must come back immediately to resupply weapo, Nam Lai returned home but …”

                Never!

  1. Enemyonly know entrepreneur Mai Hong Que” – one person freely come to the Presidential Palacea house house 287/70”?

Enemydo not know entrepreneur Mai Hong Que” – one person freely come to the Presidential Palacehave a home in 720 Vo Di Nguy ”?

Nam Lai returned home but remotely have seen top secret military siege, while a helicopter heavenly islands and torrential bullets into the house 287/70. He Know that basis were revealed, he ran the Ben Thanh market and then hide in the coal cellar housing 720 Vo Di Nguy”

The story is impossible!

  1. “we pursued the enemy aggressively while offering 2 million reward for anyone who caught him to give the authorities. Until to 1972, Nam Lai was arrested in Quang Ngai but called others name in the paper, this time he make believe that he was crazy, they did not catch anything so they must release …”

                True that: “entrepreneur Mai Hong Que” one person freely come to the Presidential Palacecan escaped out?

                Why not “to the VC zone”?

                Look: “An would often go to the VC base to discuss his reports and receive new assignments.”?

                Tran Van Lai … why so low?

                III. Story lies!

  1. His wife back home in Danang“, the CIA and South Viemese police not discovered?

(Provisional tralation) “Until  6/2002 when the boss of  ” contractor Independence Palace” – billionaire  Mai Hong Que, was the prototype of the boss character in the film company East Asian painting “Special task Saigon” vent last breath at home, many people knew him intimately, former  billionaire  special task Saigon force.

Morning of the third day of Tet, gun ammo, Mr. Nam Lai hire in mixed trash box at Ben Thanh market. At night, he left his hiding place. No money in the bag, no ID, endure and overcome hundred thousand hardships and dangers, he found that his wife back home in Danang.

                Mrs.Thiep go home to visit her husband. To avoid being arrested, she had to give him all the documents certified as severely mentally ill patients. During 1968 to April/1975, Mr. Nam Lai – Saigon special task , Hong Que Mai billionaire success as a madman.

                (Tien Phong newspaper, The soldier Special task Sai Gon in Spring 1968, January 11, 2008, http://www.tienphong.vn/xa-hoi-phong-su/nhung-chien-sy-biet-dong-sai-gon-dac-biet-xuan-1968-107934.tpo)

Comment: 1.”his wife back home in Danang“, the CIA and South Viemese police not discovered?     “No money in the bag, no ID, endure and overcome hundred thousand hardships and dangers, he found that his wife back home in Danang.

Mrs.Thiep go home to visit her husband. To avoid being arrested, she had to give him all the documents certified as severely mentally ill patients.”

Cheap story!

  1. If this story is true, Why Nam Lai is not running on “the VC base“?

Why should: “During 1968 to April/1975, Mr. Nam Lai – Saigon special task , Hong Que Mai billionaire success as a madman.“?

                If Lai is intelligence “Viemese Communist” when The attacks on the Presidential Palace failed, he totally can run the bases safely, but why he did not go but stay … to end and must “His wife back home in Danang” but still could not escape “In 1972, he was arrested and imprisoned in Son Tinh by enemy until 1975.”?

Running out “the VC base” so difficult it? Look here: “An would often go to the VC base to discuss his reports and receive new assignments.”!

Look here: “An would often go to the VC base to discuss his reports and receive new assignments. An adopted a strange modus operandi for these trips. He grew a mustache and allowed his hair to get a bit longer in an effort to disguise his identity and provide a cover for his absence. He told colleagues at Time that the “professor of sexology” was leaving for a three-day in Hue, where women fancied the “hippy-artist” look.” (Perfect Spy, Chapter 4, Page 9/27) And “An describes for me the trips that he used to make to the Cu Chi tunnels. “I would go stay for a few days to write reports and brief them,” he says. “When using secret ink on rice paper, you can’t write very much. Another way to do it was to go to Cu Chi and type up longer reports.”” (The Spy Who Loved Us, page 178)

                Story lies!

  1. “Hai Tri and Ba Den” is the boss of Nam Lai?

“A20  Leaders  special task Saigon Hai Tri  and Ba Den (Ngo Van Van) suggest Mr. Nam Lai re buy houses 287/68, 287/70 and 287/72 (now Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street Ward 5, Q .3, HCMC) and conducted renovatio …” (Tien Phong newspaper, The soldier Special task Sai Gon in Spring 1968, January 11, 2008)

                Comment: Incorrect!

                According to article 26: “Hai Tri and Ba Den” just a “real Rangers captain” – of course, the story that is lying!

  1. Tran Van Lai and Tu Cang – Narrator same a motifs.

                (Provisional tralation) “…According to aggregated materials serve records suggest posthumous title of Hero of the People’s Armed Forces for Tran Van Lai, beginning in 1963, due to the strategic needs to launch armed movement enemy right in the heart of the enemy, he was officially traferred to Unit 159 Special Military Region action under Sai Gon – Cho Lon – Gia Dinh.

                … Tran Van Lai and Mai Hong Que’ s task by that moment they was scouting profession goals, regular reports the news on Military Zone, documents of the enemy situation and facilitate opportunity for our staff to check out, lay low and stay safe operation in urban Saigon.

                Later, the confirmation of Mr. Nguyen Van Tri, former heads of combat units Euring Military Region Saigon – Gia Dinh on the achievement of Tran Van Lai also confirmed: At the headquarters of the US – puppet, the news investigated by Tran Vai Lai the situation and report on the military zone has value

                …Just short period, he has built up over 20 basis euring medium capable of hiding weapo, he tucked personnel to operate secretly, over 100 core masses could tasked from easy to difficult, from contributing money to get tasks …

                ..After a few months,  the appointment of the military zone to check the cellar, Tran Van Lai received itructio to prepare to receive weapo. With its own exclusive contractor  for Independence Palace, Mr.Tran Van Lai is not in a “trickle” into the bus that hit big. Trai carrying weapo designed for first-time iide two hollowed very heavy horse boarding, board thickness of shells fall enough ratings B.40, B.41, explosive …

                The first night of Tet, nearly 2nd Tet, weapo is the focus of the Committee for the fight. While teammate tunnel opened for unloading and assembling the weapo and equipment, clean the gun and left explosive (explosive), Mr Lai had to keep taking iron furniture legs dragged in the house; and pull out in closed iron to ace the cry of the weapo and equipment, wary of the enemy situation and the surroundings.

                … After 4 days shooting found offeive, the enemy discovered gathering place dispatching troops and weapo storage operation should have opened the enclosure, gu bombarded the front and back door…”

                Comment:

  1. Coincides with Tu Cang tasks: “…… Tran Van Lai and Mai Hong Que’ s task by that moment they was scouting profession goals, regular reports the news on Military Zone, documents of the enemy situation and facilitate opportunity for our staff to check out, lay low and stay safe operation in urban Saigon.”
  2. Ridiculous here is: Both the 2 “Super Spies” are “very liberal”!

                Tu Cang: “They also drove around Saigon in An’s green Renault, identifying the easiest targets for attack, with An advising ways to avoid security systems. ” (episode 5)

                – entrepreneur Mai Hong Que: This is a “broken amulet” in the lifetime of his secret activities. Thanks to this certificate, he was accepted as an interior, can freely come to the Presidential Palace

  1. Ridiculous here is: Both the 2 “Super Spies” are “taskoverlapping tasks”: “scouting profession goals“.

                – Tu Cang: “Tu Cang and An isolated twenty targets in Saigon, including the Presidential Palace and the U.S. embassy.

                – entrepreneur Mai Hong Que: “… Tran Van Lai and Mai Hong Que’ s task by that moment they was scouting profession goals…”, follow: “…Just short period, he has built up over 20 basis euring medium capable of hiding weapo, he tucked personnel to operate secretly, over 100 core masses. “

                Quick as “cinema” that?

  1. Ridiculous here is: Both 2 are escaped, while: “until nearly all of the small unit was killed” (Washington Post – 1968.)

                while:

                Tu Cang: “Beginning at 2:48 A.M. on Wednesday, January 31, Tu Cang personally led the attack on the palace, where fifteen of the seventeen members on his team were killed outright.

                “I pulled out my gun, aimed it at two American officers, fired two quick shots, and then immediately pulled back into my hiding place.”49 Tu Cang takes credit for killing the two American officers…

                – entrepreneur Mai Hong Que: “Mr.To Hoai Thanh – Team Head (Ba Thanh) assigned Nam Lai stay resupply weapo to other attacks but Nam Lai firmly suggested to participate in this time because he know the way to entrance in the palace.

                Not probably: Both the 2 “Super Spies” are “taskoverlapping tasks”: “scouting profession goals“, at same fight, the same was not killed? while: “fifteen of the seventeen members on his team were killed outright”?

                Never!

  1. Ridiculous here is:Reason exit.

                – Tu Cang: “However, I also knew that firing a gun is something that an intelligence agent has to weigh extremely carefully, because if an intelligence agent is exposed it is very likely that an entire espionage net that has taken years to develop will suddenly be rendered ineffective.

                – entrepreneur Mai Hong Que: “Only remaining Mr. Nam Lai, after being besieged by enemy then received orders to retreat anyway to maintain inline. After three days hiding in the trash at Ben Thanh market, He brought his wife and children in Phu Nhuan withdrawal from Saigon, and he continued to coolidate the remaining basis of the commando.

                Not probably: fearing:  “if an intelligence agent is exposed it is very likely that an entire espionage … ineffective“, or “retreat anyway to maintain inline.should both the 2 exited?

  1. Where is the truth?

                Just that: “…According to aggregated materials serve records suggest posthumous title of Hero of the People’s Armed Forces for Tran Van Lai”

                “Later, the confirmation of Mr. Nguyen Van Tri, former heads of combat units Euring Military Region Saigon – Gia Dinh on the achievement of Tran Van Lai also confirmed:…”

                While the truth is: (Thư 3)

                Summary: Tran Van Lai and Tu Cang are not “super spies Communism”!

                Tran Van Lai neither “entrepreneur Mai Hong Que”!

                While the truth is: Tran Van Lai = a person was crazy!

                Initially, they took “a person was crazy – Tran Van Lai named” then assign that person is: “wounded ¼ class (81% health)” –  then assign that person is: Hero “attacks on the Presidential Palace”, was “entrepreneur Mai Hong Que”… Let them tell stories to have “living witness”!

                Later, they find that “person was crazy – Tran Van Lai” role-plays “Super spy Communists” not good.  And the trick Viemese people and the world too easy. So they’ve let Bop also “Hero “attacks on the Presidential Palace””!

                The truth is that!

  1. Some versioAlso: No Tu Cang.

(Roughly tralated) “At the Independence Palace, 1 hour 30 minutes, including 15 teams of 5 officers and soldiers led by Mr. To Hoai Thanh commander, derived from the number 280/70 Phan Dinh Phung Street, go over 3 minicar and a motorcycle, radar, fire attack Independence Palace. Some soldiers penetrated the campus, two comrades sacrifice, a comrade tur out to be the enemy wounded, forced to deploy combat on Nguyen Du. Battle rages on, to close the morning, the team sacrificed 7 comrades, including captain Hoai Thanh, 8 comrades remaining half had retreated into the house wounded people, entrenched on a strategic level 3 play. Still hungry and tired but tenacious fighters fought all day 31-1, fight off several waves of enemy counter-attack, killing doze of names. Mr. Le Tan Nation’s duty barricades down the enemy from the top hit, hit sacrifice. To 3 am on 1-2-1968, 7 comrades rest from hunger and exhaustion, all fall into the hands of the enemy. (People’s Army newspaper, Saigon special task – Jiading Spring 1968, ĐOÀN HOÀI TRUNG, 22/08/2013, http://vndefence.info/tin/ho-so/657/biet-dong-sai-gon-gia-dinh-xuan-mau-than-1968/)

                Comment:  1. Also: No Tu Cang.

  1. Version this confirmedfire attack Independence Palace“, took place more than a day: “1 hour 30 minutesderived from the number 280/70 Phan Dinh Phung Streettenacious fighters fought all day 31-1To 3 am on 1-2-1968, 7 comrades rest from hunger and exhaustion, all fall into the hands of the enemy.

                Tu Cang storytelling attacks on the Presidential Palace just in one morning (also redundant): “Beginning at 2:48 A.M. on Wednesday, January 31, Tu Cang personally led the attack on the palace, where fifteen of the seventeen members on his team were killed outrightLater that morning, Tu Cang and An drove around the city, counting the bodies of the Vietcong soldiers who had died in the attack.”

                Who is right? Version right? Tu Cang or right?
The truth is all wrong!
