French lab identifies US soldier's remains after JPAC refuses to investigate

French lab identifies US soldier's remains after JPAC refuses to investigate | World at War | Scoop.it
France’s national crime laboratory has positively identified the remains of an U.S. Army soldier missing from World War II after the U.S. Defense Department’s own accounting agency refused to exhume the body and conduct a DNA test.
Global Research's insight:

JPAC Stonewalls more identification cases than it solves.  It is a typical government agency that toots it own horn, but refuses the help of many credible volunteers, historians and researchers.  We know of the locations of American remains buried in Germany and the Czech Republic that JPAC has flatly refused to assist in exhuming and identifying.  These families also deserve to have their hero loved ones home.  Congratulations to the team that brought Pvt. Gordon home and closure to his family so many years after he heroically died fighting against tyranny and oppression.
