Get this from a library. The CIA's secret war in Tibet. [Kenneth J Conboy; James Morrison] -- In one of the most remote covert campaigns of the cold war, the CIA harnessed, nurtured, and encouraged the Khampa tribesmen of Tibet in their defiance.

This book can be used as a guideline for understanding how secret wars and destabilizations are done. In itself, the Tibet story is very interesting and relates to protests held there by Buddhist monks as well as alerting readers to the destruction of Tibet by China/5. Following the month-long Sino-Indian War ofthe CIA developed a close relationship with Indian foreign intelligence services in both training and supplying agents in Tibet.

The CIA worked to strengthen the Tibetans against the Chinese communist efforts. To do so, the United States planned to issue asylum to the Dali Lama and his supporters. In Secret Tibet (In disguise amongst lamas, robbers, and wise men) is a travel book by author Theodore Illion, first published in English in Fantastic tales.

Inthe author set out to explore Tibet, dyeing his face with iodine and oil to avoid detection in a country that was closed to foreigners at the time. Theodore Illion wrote three books about the country, Darkness over Tibet.

Indeed, according to Peissel, the Kham exile army has tied down the Chinese military for years, a fact which at least ""in part"" explains why the Sino-Indian war of ended as it did — Chinese troops ""were still needed to fight the rebels inside Tibet,"" thus foiling Mao from pursuing his easy victory over the Indians.

The publication of the US' secret intelligence documents on the CIA covert operations in Tibet back in came like a clap of thunder in a clear sky. The declassified memoranda shed light on Washington's interference on China's domestic affairs since the later s and the Dalai Lama's cooperation with the CIA.
