An expose of the worst act of treason in our history -- the Betrayal of American POWs following World War 11, the Korean conflict and the debacle in Vietnam. A shocking expose of the shameful betrayal and astounding cover up regarding American military men who were deliberately left behind following World War 11, the Korean War and the debacle in Vietnam.
How American soldiers and marines were abandoned in Russian and Chinese slave labor camps.
How highly skilled Cuban interrogators were brought in to sadistically maim and murder American POWs.
How the attitude of our leaders followed the view espoused by Henry “Bor” Kissinger: “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
And Harriet Ison, Charge d’ Affairs -- United States Embassy in Vientiane, Laos, 1990: “You do not understand … there is a greater destiny for our foreign policy in Asia and the POWs are expendable in pursuit of that policy.”

           Who would have thought that young American boys, drafted or enlisting in the United States Armed Forces during World War II, would end up as POWs and spend the rest of their lives in horrid Russian slave labor camps?

   Tens of thousands did!

Or that young American fighting men in the Korean War, would end up as POWs and spend the rest of their lives in horrid Korean, Chinese and Russian slave labor camps?

       Thousands upon thousands did!

   Or that young American boys, who heroically fought during the Vietnam War, would end up as POWs and spend the rest of their lives in horrid Vietnamese, Laotian, Chinese and Russian slave labor camps?

         Thousands more did!

      Or that their government would have deliberately abandoned to their sadistic Com­munist captors, thousands of young American fighting men who had been left behind when the Korean War ended?

        The United States Government did exactly this!

          Or that officials in their government would blatantly lie by announcing in 1973, and uncountable times since, that all American POWs in Viet­nam and in other parts of Southeast Asia were dead?

     Officials throughout the United States Government lied and continue to lie to this very day!

     Or that United States Army specialists would deliberately misidentify the purported remains of American servicemen who died during the Vietnam debacle

         They did and are still doing this!

      Or that despite more than 1400 unresolved reports of first-hand live American POW sightings, an agency of the United States Government still has the audacity to lie by declaring that it has “no credible evidence”?

          The Defense Department did this!

      This is an explosive exposé of a series of treasonous betrayals: the betrayal of American prisoners of war as World War II wound down to its conclusion; of American prisoners of war after the Korean debacle; and of American prisoners of war following the spectacularly brazen Washington engineered  Vietnam sellout!

     It reveals how highly skilled Cuban interrogators were brought in to sadistically maim and murder American POWs. 

     And how the attitude of our leaders followed the view espoused by Henry “Bor” Kissinger: “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”

    And Harriet Ison, Charge d’ Affairs -- United States Embassy in Vientiane, Laos, 1990: “You do not understand … there is a greater destiny for our foreign policy in Asia and the POWs are expendable in pursuit of that policy.”

       “Men who would deliberately leave behind Americans to suffer and die in captivity …  are dangerous men,” charged Charlie Reese on January 22, 1991.  “Our government knew there were living POWs left behind and resorted to lies, intimidation, disinformation, frameups, character assassination and possibly even murder to keep that disgusting secret.”

         But the POW/MIA situation in Southeast Asia wasn’t anything new!

        In 1945 the Russians “liberated’ more than 1,000,000 Allied POWs who had been incarcerated in German prisoner of war camps in Poland, East Germany and Austria.

         Tens of thousands of American POWs were , shipped by the Soviets to Siberia and held in Russian slave labor camps.

         Roosevelt and Truman believed that a dispute over these American POWs simply wasn’t worth the risk of war with America’s Soviet “Allies.”

          Then more than a half-century ago the no-win Korean War came to an end.  Some 10,000 American boys -- ages 18 to 30 – were left alive in 1953 as POWs in the hands of the ruthless North Korean Communists.

     On January 23, 1973, Richard Nixon flagrant lied to the American people. He said: “All American prisoners of war throughout Indochina will be released” and that America would have “the fullest possible accounting for all those who are missing-in-action.”

        Nixon knew better!

        On April 13, 1973, a Department of Defense press state­ment contained the same kind of brazen untruth: “There are no more prisoners in Southeast Asia. They are all dead.”

      On March 23, 1977, the White House released the U.S. Presidential Commission Report. The big lie was again reiterated: “There is no evidence to indicate that any American POWs from the Indochina conflict remain alive.”

      Actually there was no evidence to indicate there weren’t.

      And in July of 1990, Colonel Joseph A. Schlatter, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Special Office for POWIMIAs, brazenly continued the big lie.  He boldly declared: “If we look at everything we collected during the war and everything we’ve collected since the war, we don’t find any evidence that Americans are captive.”

      The above examples are blatant falsehoods. There have been hundreds upon hundreds of these kinds of prevarications.  

     No military officer is ever allowed for whatever the reason to desert his men!  Action of this nature would warrant a court martial. The penalty for such a cowardly deed might well be the gallows!

        Is not the President of the United States the Commander-in-Chief of all the military branches -- Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force?

        Didn’t President Truman inexcusably abandon tens of thousands of American POWs when World War II ended?

        Absolutely!

        Didn’t President Eisenhower indefensibly turn his back on thousands of American POWs when the Korean War ended?

        Certainly!

         Didn’t President Nixon unforgivably for­sake thousands of American POWs when the Vietnam War finally ended?

        Yes!

               Navy Captain and fighter pilot Eugene “Red” McDaniel sums it up best when he declared: “If had known as a POW, what I know now about my government, I could not have lived the 2110 days I spent in captivity.

     “I was prepared to fight; I was prepared to be wounded; I was prepared to be captured; I was even prepared to die -- but I wasn’t prepared to be abandoned!”
