Iraqi POW Speicher May Be Alive?

Posted by Mark on September 8, 2005


This is deeply disturbing:

A Navy pilot shot down over Iraq in January 1991 may have been captured by Iraqi forces, and members of the former Iraqi government “know the whereabouts” of the officer, the Navy has concluded.

A Navy board of inquiry concluded that there is no credible evidence that Capt. Michael “Scott” Speicher is dead, and it reaffirmed his official status as “missing/captured,” according to the board’s final report.

The board also recommended that the Pentagon work with the State Department, the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and the Iraqi government to “increase the level of attention and effort inside Iraq” to resolve the question of Speicher’s fate.

This needs to get alot of coverage, across the blogosphere. If there’s a chance this airman is still alive, and has been held by Saddam and company for all these years…
