MIAs in Limbo

In this photo taken Monday, July 1, 2013, in Chapel Hill, N.C., Shelia Reese, right, holds hands with her mother Chris Tench while holding a portrait of Tench and her father Kenneth F. Reese, a soldier who is still Missing In Action from the Korean War. Tench, who was later remarried, has never known what happened to her husband. 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.
