US Navy reservist Safi Rauf was able to secure Afghan-American Mahnaz Safi's release and arrived with her at JFK Airport on Thursday morning after arranging her safe passage to Dubai. Safi, an Afghan-American born in New Jersey, decided to travel to a village in Jowzjan Province in May to distribute humanitarian aid after raising $18,000. But just three weeks into her stay local police brought her in for questioning and she was detained for several days after they found she had no visa. Her family reached out to Rauf after reading about his months-long captivity by the Taliban and his work with the Human First Coalition. After spending 105 days in Taliban captivity Rauf and his brother were released in April following months of negotiations by the Biden administration. But when it came to the negotiations to free Safi, the State Department had no involvement....

An American in the Basement: The Betrayal of Captain Scott Speicher and the Cover-up of His Death

http://www.amazon.com/books/dp/1937584208

The incredible story of denial, deceit, and deception that ultimately cost Navy pilot Captain Michael Scott Speicher his life is exposed in this military tell-all. Asserting that years of information has been intentionally kept from an American public, the book reveals that, contrary to reports, Speicher survived after he ejected from his stricken F/A-18 Hornet on the first night of the Persian Gulf War. Protected by a Bedouin tribal group, he evaded Saddam’s capture for nearly four years. In that time he was repeatedly promised by an American intelligence asset that a deal for his repatriation would be worked out but it never was. Speicher was left behind. After Saddam Hussein captured him, Speicher spent the next eight years in a secret Baghdad prison and being moved around in secret to avoid an American task force looking for him, and before he was killed after the United States invaded Iraq in March 2003. Author Amy Waters Yarsinske, a former naval intelligence officer and a veteran investigator and author, presents her fascinating case after years of research.

AP IMPACT:  MIA work 'acutely dysfunctional'
By ROBERT BURNS    Jul. 7 10:22 AM EDT

     WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon's effort to account for tens of  thousands of Americans missing in action from foreign wars is so inept, mismanaged and wasteful that it risks descending from "dysfunction to total failure," according to an internal study suppressed by military officials.
     Largely beyond the public spotlight, the decades-old pursuit of bones and other MIA evidence is sluggish, often duplicative and subjected to too little scientific rigor, the report says.....
