These are outtakes of my feature doco about the so-called secret war in Laos, The Most Secret Place on Earth–The CIA's covert war in Laos. Anthony Poshepny was just one of five renegades that Coppolla referred to within the procedure of writing and discussing the screenplay of Apocalypse Now! with Marlon Brando.
There has been evidence and witness accounts of many of Poe's compatriots that confirm him cutting of enemy ears as well as heads, which he preserved in jars in his hut, as well as intimidating POWs by throwing their compatriots out of flying helicopters, Tony Poe has been referred to as one of the most striking templates of Brando's Kurtz in Apocalypse Now!
Talking about him here are some of his frllow fighters and adversaries. Vint Lawrence, CIA case officer who was stationed in Long Cheng with Poe from 62-66, James Lilley deputy CIA station chief Laos, Charlie Weitz, Air America pilot and finally Fred Brafnman, journalist and aid worker, who blew Poe's cover.
