Suspected CIA black site in Thailand to become tourist destination

A CIA black site? Or habitat to rats?

Not many tourist attractions promote themselves by saying “there’s nothing to see here”. But the Ramasun Camp Historical Museum in north-eastern Thailand isn’t your average destination: it’s among the locations suspected of hosting a CIA black site and secret torture prison.

 

Set to open as a museum on Saturday, the base started as the US Army’s 7th Radio Research Field Station in 1964 and according to the official history was used in the Vietnam war to spy on communists and control plane movements until 1976.

 

Unofficially and more recently, it’s one of three sites in the remote north-eastern province of Udon Thani suspected to be part of the US Central Intelligence Agency’s worldwide network of secret locations where terrorist suspects were subjected to enhanced interrogation.

I did live just two killometers from the Voice of America site on the 2022 in  Udon Thani.

 

Military helecopters flying in at night. Screams and cries. Armed guards everywhere. Massive water bills.

"Massive water bills"

They 'suspect' that it was a CIA black site and are opening it to the public based on suspicion?

 

It either was or wasn't.

Think it could be fake news.

Sounds more like the first full on all inclusive Soapy massage parlour.

That's why the water bill was so high.

Water boarding,   think you mean water sports. :smile:

TIT, :thumbsup:

Wasn't it Prawit who denied those places never existed in Thailand? Invite him for the opening to cut the the satin band at the entrance.

Was just going to say just that.   Deny, deny, deny until we can make a buck.   Can you trust anything that comes from that little troll's mouth ?   He is the concubine of fibs.

How sick and gruesome all this 'Thai horror tourism' is. 

 

Truly, the people who run this place have very real psychological, emotional and moral issues (some people would call them psychopaths) ...

I gave them a call, but just got a message saying they were tied up at the moment.

Great idea....allow tourists to see where Thailand allowed torture by foreign agencies!

Whats the problem.?

Ever go to a Nazi death camp tour?

They are some of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe...

Maybe its a sick world but many people get off on hate, torture, death and destruction.

Well they are hardly likely to allow you to see where they torture their own people are they ?

This is a serious question: Are there any sites in Thailand from WW2 or the Vietnam era worth visiting?

Bridge over the river Kwai is the only one that springs to mind.   The AVG or Flying Tigers bombed Thailand extensively form China.  The RAF did too from Burma.   Sure if you read up, you might find some things. 

 

A friend of mine, his brother was wounded by insurgence from Lao while at the Ubon Air Force Base, back in the early 70's.  That is when his parents lost faith.  They thought he was safe in Thailand, and the fact he was wounded meant there must be many things the government was hiding at the time.  One of my bosses was there too.  A lot of bad things happened there during the war.
