Chapter 8. “The Communist super spies” are suspected, be controlled = Pham Xuan An. And secret “Nguyen Ai Quoc Communist”
Episode 30. “Be controlled” until death – General story of “the Communist Super Spy”.
- Phạm Xuân Ẩn – “Be controlled” until death. = Ba Quoc.
“The new government offered An a job in the ceNSorship office“?
“The new government offered An a job in the ceNSorship office, which he declined. He was then asked to train Communist journalists, but he thought it was a practical joke: “Anyone I trained would lose their red card. What could I possibly teach VieTNAmese journalists about my profession? If they practiced it the way I believed, they would be sent to reeducation, so I was really saving them a lot of expeNSe and problems.”
And so the reeducated An had trouble fitting in and being trusted. ” (Perfect Spy, Chapter 7, Page 8/23)
There is more than a touch of irony.
“In January 1958 Lee assumed the editorship of the Barnacle. An was promoted from feature writer to second page editor, meaning that he and Lee would work closely for the entire spring semester of 1958. An iNSerted an important detail into the Barnacle article announcing his promotion: “An Pham, foreign student from VieTNAm, will take over the duties of second page editor. An previously worked in the capacity of feature writer for the Barnacle and as a member of a news ceNSorship board in his native land.”19There is more than a touch of irony here because in 1976 An scoffed at the idea that he should work in just such a capacity for the new regime.” (Perfect Spy, Chapter 3, Page 5/20)
“I later learned than An had never really retired from the spy business; he remained a “coNSultant” for Hanoi’s General Department of Intelligence until six months prior to his death. “They are always asking me to read things and give my analysis. They know I will give them an honest assessment because I don’t need anything from them. But I am so tired now and many times cannot find the time to read it all and then analyze it the way I should,” said An.” (Perfect Spy, Epilogue, Page 1/10)
Comment: A person under surveillance, so they can be: “The new government offered An a job in the ceNSorship office” journalism of Communists? And “he remained a “coNSultant” for Hanoi’s General Department of Intelligence until six months prior to his death. “?
They say to dread – indeed – required An sitting there – let them easily monitor!
The truth is: Being under house arrest “Office”! (was placed under house arrest.)
Professor Larry Berman – It is naive!
He was acting on orders from above.
“When I went to visit him for the last time, in January 2006, we were preparing for what I thought would be a long night of conversation, the usual mix of stories and jokes, when he told me this would be our last meeting. There was no going back on his decision. We would never see each other again.
I knew by this point that An was working with another “official” biographer. “What’s the difference between my book and this other book?” I asked. “Your book is being written from iNSide VieTNAm,” he said, implying that I had access to seNSitive information that should not be revealed. I took this as a compliment to my VieTNAmese research assistants, whose legwork and tenacity were sometimes as remarkable as An’s back in the days when he was the hardest-working journalist in VieTNAm.
I was hurt by An’s decision not to see me again, and I took the news personally, until I learned that he was acting on orders from above. ” (The Spy Who Loved Us, page 7)
Comment: “taking orders from his superiors” until death!
Taking orders from his superiors.
We talk about my New Yorker article published in May 2005.
An complaiNS that the photographer nearly killed him in a photo shoot that lasted half a day. Following this ordeal, his favorite lark lost all his feathers and didn’t sing for a weEK. Then the magazine’s fact checker pestered him with phone calls but she still misidentified his great-grandfather’s birthplace in North VieTNAm.
“I know what happened to you,” a VieTNAmese friend later tells me. “You published information that should not have gotten out. It violated the protection of state secrets. After you let the cat out of the bag, someone made the decision to close you down.” I am saddened to think that an old man taking rhinoceros horn and gasping for breath can still be coNSidered dangerous to state security. I am also unnerved by realizing that An is still taking orders from his superiors. Like An’s other American friends, I believed he was his own man, the one free soul in VieTNAm who could speak his mind while flying the flag of liberty.”(The Spy Who Loved Us, page 255)
Comment: “I am saddened to think that an old man taking rhinoceros horn and gasping for breath can still be coNSidered dangerous to state security. I am also unnerved by realizing that An is still taking orders from his superiors. “
“In 1997 the VieTNAmese government apparently denied An permission to visit the United States for a conference at the Asia Society in New York, to which he had been invited as a special guest, and it was not until March 2002 that the seventy-four-year-old, emphysema-stricken general was supposedly allowed to retire. (He “retired” again in July 2005, but he was actually working up to the day he died.) “They wanted to control me,”
he says. “That’s why they kept me in the military so long. I talk very wildly. They wanted to keep my mouth shut.” All we can say for sure is that for at least thirty years after the end of the war An was still an active member of VieTNAm’s intelligence service. ” (The Spy Who Loved Us, page 230)
Comment: Like Ba Quoc!
Actually – they asked for An – making it useless things – to supervise him – iNStead of going to prison alone, just as Ba Quoc below.
- Ba Quoc – Dang Tran Duc – “Be controlled” until death = Pham Xuan An.
“And from 1976 through until 1988, sometimes arount from 2 -3 months he was going home… He worked until 1 year ago, at age 82 (he was born in 1922, the age when was born is 83 years old) will definitely work out regularly, but every weEK he has to work in offices around 1 or 2 times.”
(Provisional traNSlation) “We do not have enough information about his job after the liberation from Mr. Ba Quoc so far. However, according to Mr. Muoi Nho, his merits in the war protection of national borders is” more prominent and have special merits “.
The first month after liberation, he worked and stay at the agency, long time he go home. And from 1976 through until 1988, sometimes arount from 2 -3 months he was going home. By 1988, he worked in the city but the job requirements he stay at the office, He visit home one time per weEK. Since 1990, he goes home at night. “Have you seen your father on leave?”. “No, I did not see him leave any day. Both Sundays and holidays he was going to work. And then the first of the New Year he was going to do it.” His son said that his salary is “split”, sent a half for someone in the North, and the rest in the South. The years after the liberation Mr. Xuan open stalls selling books and nourishing the pigs to “improve” lives. He worked until 1 year ago, at age 82 (he was born in 1922, the age when was born is 83 years old) will definitely work out regularly, but every weEK he has to work in offices around 1 or 2 times. ” (Text 1)

Reviews:The truth is: Being under house arrest “Office”! (was placed under house arrest.)
Look: Pham Xuan An: ” Be controlled = Ba Quoc – Dang Tran Duc!”
Surely all “super Communist Spies”: Vũ Ngọc Nhạ, Lê Hữu Thúy, Trần Sĩ Hùng and Trần Quốc Hương… also offers: Being under house arrest “Office”! = Ba Quoc – Dang Tran Duc and Pham Xuan An!
III. He is buried beside Ba Quoc and other espionage agents.
“An is venerated and beloved in VieTNAm for his contribution to the VieTNAmese people’s victory. When he died on September 20, 2006, his coffin lay in state for two days of public tribute before a funeral with full military honors. He is buried beside Ba Quoc and other espionage agents in a special area of the Ho Chi Minh City national cemetery.” (Perfect Spy, Epilogue, Page 8/10)

Ông tướng tình báo bí ẩn và những điệp vụ siêu hạng (Kỳ 34): Con người khổ hạnh
“Chúng tôi chưa có đủ thông tin về những công việc của ông Ba Quốc từ sau giải phóng đến nay. Tuy nhiên theo ông Mười Nho thì công lao của ông trong cuộc chiến tranh bảo vệ biên giới của Tổ quốc là “nổi bật hơn và có những công lao đặc biệt”.
…Những tháng đầu tiên sau giải phóng, ông làm việc và ở lại cơ quan, lâu lâu mới về nhà một lần. Và suốt từ năm 1976 cho đến năm 1988, thỉnh thoảng khi 2 tháng, khi 3 tháng ông mới về thăm nhà. Đến năm 1988, ông về làm việc ở TP.HCM nhưng do yêu cầu công việc ông cũng ở luôn tại cơ quan, mỗi tuần về thăm nhà một lần. Từ năm 1990, buổi tối ông mới về nhà. “Anh có thấy bố anh nghỉ phép không?”. “Không, tôi chưa thấy ông nghỉ phép ngày nào cả. Cả chủ nhật và ngày lễ ông vẫn đi làm. Còn Tết thì mồng một ông đã đi làm rồi”. Người con của ông cũng cho biết tiền lương của ông thì “chia đôi”, gửi cho bà ngoài Bắc một nửa, bà trong Nam một nửa. Những năm sau giải phóng bà Xuân mở một quầy bán sách báo và nuôi heo để “cải thiện” đời sống. Ông làm việc cho đến mãi cách đây 1 năm, lúc đã 82 tuổi (ông sinh năm 1922, tuổi “mụ” là 83 tuổi) mới dứt ra khỏi công việc thường xuyên, nhưng mỗi tuần ông vẫn đến làm việc ở cơ quan khoảng 1 hoặc 2 lần.”
