[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] those numbers are available as MIA's, and it was more than were brought home. [b]Following the Paris Peace Accords of January 1973, U.S. prisoners of war were returned during Operation Homecoming during February through April 1973. During this, 591 POWs were released to U.S. authorities; this included a few captured in Laos and released in North Vietnam. U.S. President Richard Nixon announced that all U.S. servicemen taken prisoner had been accounted for. At that time, the U.S. listed 2,646 Americans as unaccounted for, including about 1,350 prisoners of war or missing in action and roughly 1,200 reported killed in action and body not recovered. The low numbers of returnees from Laos caused some immediate concern, as previous Pentagon estimates were as high as 41 for prisoners held there, although only a few had been known to be captured for certain.[/b] if the GOP brings impeachment proceedings against Obama for this, they are cutting heir own throats again... Obama did th eright thing here. yes he should have consulted congress as i understand the law says, but even if Bowe was on LSD and shot one of our guys before he ran off? we still don't leave him behind if possible. if he deserves a punishment for his ctions? he can do it at leavenworth, and his imprisonment as a POW should be counted as time served.
