Storyline

Hundreds of American POWs from the Korean War were abandoned in N. Korea after hostilities ended in 1953. When it became apparent that repatriating these men would not be feasible, the U.S. government declared them, "Missing, Presumed Dead." These missing servicemen were forgotten until POW/MIA activists forced the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, chaired by Sen. John Kerry, to investigate recent reports that POWs are still alive in Vietnam and N. Korea and that the Pentagon has kept this secret from the public. MISSING, PRESUMED DEAD, unveils the mystery of why these POWs were abandoned, the likelihood some are still alive in N. Korea and why our government doesn't want them back. Written by Bill Dumas

A Really Great Documentary
3 February 2006 | by supersocket7See all my reviews

If you thought Senator John McCain and John Kerry (both US veterans, and McCain a former POW from the Korea war) would be in favor of finding out whether there are still POWs in North Korea: THINK AGAIN! This documentary shows footage from C-SPAN in 1996 when a senate hearing was established hear whether there was enough evidence of POWs in North Korea (McCain and Kerry were on it). I saw it on PBS late one night and I was stunned to see all but one senate committee members walked out after hearing reports about live POWs still in North Korea. This is one of the best documentaries I have seen and I plan to buy a copy and show it to my father and uncles who think the Pentagon, Senate, and our Presidents would never leave a man behind.
