Summary Note

Kenneth and Bill Donovan went up to the extreme northern part of Thailand for the repatriation of the KMT troops. Both the previous ambassador, Ed Stanton, and the ambassador to Burma, David Key, had been told to assure their respective governments that the U.S. was not helping the KMTs at all. When Dave Key found out that this was a lie, he resigned. Ed Stanton, though outraged, was able to accept it. (Length 2:28)
