Amy Waters Yarsinske latest expose is on the case of Captain Scott Speicher as detailed in her new book An American in the Basement.
BACKGROUND: Author Amy Waters Yarsinske, a veteran author of more than 55 non-fiction books on American history, military and current affairs, 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. Researcher Yarsinske advocates that every parent, family member or enlisted person become educated 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. Yarsinske. “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, since World War II.
Amy Waters Yarsinske is available for interview by phone at any time.
