Peter Lang-Stanton thought his father was a paper-pushing bureaucrat in the State Department. Then one day, his father revealed his double-life as a spy. This story is a son's investigation of his father's role in a dubious covert mission in 1960s Laos under the codename: Pig-Pen.
This story originally aired on as “The CIA’s Secret War in Laos“ on BBC's The Documentary in December 2017.
