Description

60 Minutes tells the story of Navy pilot Michael Scott Speicher, the first American lost in the Gulf War. 60 Minutes reveals that the "US military likely left" Speicher in Iraq and then "four years later willingly passed on a chance to bring him or his remains home... There is a remote chance Speicher is a prisoner of Saddam Hussein. Speicher went down during the first mission of the first night of the Gulf War. Contrary to what his fellow pilots thought, no rescue mission was ever launched. After the war, contrary to what the Pentagon said, no one ever looked for his plane."
