PARTS of American uniforms found...

  1. Oh nooooooooooo....

    Just heard on TV from Pentagon reporter that a military prison was invaded by out troops after receiving intelligence on the location.. that this may be where our 7 POWS were being held.

    That only parts (bloody scraps) of uniforms were found, boots, and other particles of clothing.. 2 with American names on them.

    Dear God, please no.

    anybody out there getting anything more on this? I can't STAND it!

    Said they got in there too late, that it had been evacuated right before they came... that's all I got. Anybody else know more?

    Can they report this before saying anything to the families? This would be sheer hell for them !!!

    No,Jnette. They notify the family first and they would not do it on the basis of torn, bloody uniforms. They need a body or DNA material. If a reporter blabbed names, he'd go the way of Arnett and Geraldo.

    I understand that part, Hrd.knox... they DON'T know if the POWS are alive or not... just found uniform scraps, boots, etc. Barbara Starr at teh Pentagon was the one who was reporting this as "disturbing news" coming from the area. No names were given although they did have 2 uniforms with names on them.

    I'm just wondering how fair it is to even mention that on the news
    without any furhter info... from the families' point of view, y'know?
    I would be worried sick right now( and am) if I were in their shoes !

    They could still be alive. Remember that. I'm sure they were tortured but they could still be alive.

    Keep praying.

    MKUE, that was BEAUTIFUL...
    Wow, what a powerful prayer. Thanx so much. Just happened to be set to one of my alltime favorite songs, as well. That song has been dear to my hear ever since I was itty-bitty, and has gotten me through many a hard time.

    Thanx again. :kiss

    Col. Hunt, the talking tv head, announced on CNBC on Sunday morning that the tv POWs had been murdered. I almost went into shock when I heard it because the goverment has made no such announcement. I did a thread about it called Big Mouth.
