Detachment B-57 of US Army Special Forces was a special missions unit tasked with intelligence collection activities in Cambodia during the Vietnam War. The unit, primarily composed of local indigenous personnel led by six Green Berets was responsible for the majority of the ground intelligence collected in Cambodia during their time in country.
B-57 is best known for the infamous killing of Chu Van Thai Khac, a double agent within their ranks. Several team members were arrested and charged with the extralegal killing, though they claimed they were ordered to terminate Chu “with extreme prejudice”. All charges were eventually dropped.
