MIAs in Limbo
FILE - This May 18, 2009 file photo show Members of the JPAC, Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, right, and South Korean Army soldiers searching for remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War in Hwacheon, South Korea. The Pentagon said Tuesday it will take a “second look” at how it goes about accounting for missing Americans on foreign battlefields, following the disclosure of an internal assessment that the work is “acutely dysfunctional” and at risk of failure.“We have a sacred obligation to perform this mission well,” Pentagon press secretary George Little told reporters, referring to the Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command, or JPAC, which is based in Hawaii and run by a two-star general. The U.S. estimates there are more than 83,000 Americans missing from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon, File)
