The Rules committee heard testimony on S. 82, legislation that would create a Senate select committee to oversee the investigation into POW-MIA’s remaining in other countries following the Korean and Vietnam wars. Colonel Peck resigned from his position in the Defense Intelligence Agency because of its poor handling of investigations into POW-MIA’s sightings in Vietnam. The issue of POW-MIA investigations surfaced in July 1991 when a former POW from the Vietnam war made public a photograph of three men who were claimed to be POW-MIA’s from the Vietnam war who were still alive and being held captive in Vietnam. The Pentagon said the photograph could not be verified nor absolutely proven to be a fake, but it came from unreliable sources. close
