Author Amy Water Yarsinke, a veteran author of more than 55 non-fiction books on American history, military and current affairs. She is known as “the POW Hunter” due to her experience in military intelligence.
An American in the Basement is an expose about the betrayal of Captain Scott Speicher and the cover-up of his death, according to the author. C-SPAN will explore this detailed investigation for the first time, as author Amy Yarsinke warns that this story is for every parent, family member or enlisted person about the promises made by the U.S. Forces to search, locate, assist and recover all alive prisoners of war and missing in action.
“The public has been shielded from the ugly truth of the Speicher case and others like it,” said Ms. Yarsinke. “This book bares the truth in a way that Washington has actively tried to prevent.”
The story of navy captain Michael Scott Speicher begins when he became the first American service man shot down in the 1991 Iraqi conflict. The book documents what happened, from beginning to end, with new documentation and eyewitness accounts that confirm Speicher was alive and captured during that war, but “forgotten” and left to behind to die. The book also examines in great detail the war of words used by the armed services to define those it will bring home, and those it will choose to ignore.
