MIAs in limbo
WASHINGTON- The Pentagon's Inspector General will investigate allegations of waste and misuse of taxpayer dollars by a military unit responsible for accounting for POWs and MIAs. The investigation is in response to a report that says the Joint MIA-POW Accounting Command's search for the remains of U.S. service members on old battlefields is so inept,mismanaged and wasteful that is risks total failure. The Inspector General says it is a non criminal investigation. At a Senate hearing today, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for POW-MIA policy said the investigation is into allegations of "waste, fraud and abuse."
