Skip to comments.The Claims of MG Jan Sejna: Crafted Nonsense
Posted on 07/29/2010 8:06:57 AM PDT by combat_boots
Summary. In the early 1990s, during the tenure of the Senate Select Committee on POW-MIAs, a witness appeared who told a story about US POWs from the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Major General Jan Sejna, a defector who had fled from Czechoslovakia to the US in 1968, claimed that he knew of a program whereby US POWs from Korea and Vietnam were used in medical experiments in Korea, Russia, and Czechoslovakia. Sejna's story was made more believable by the fact that he had served for years as a consultant to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), a position he still held when he made his claims. His revelations are a major element of the MIA "activists' " gospel.
Sejna's story is a fabrication. Carefully crafted, skillfully presented, but a fabrication nonetheless. The Sejna saga started just after his defection when he was asked by the CIA if he had any knowledge of American POWs. His response was that he knew nothing about US POWs. He was asked the same question in different forms at different times, each time with the same response.
As with most other things related to the MIA issue, Sejna's story is not simple. I will compress it to a few facts and considerations here.

The 1982 book “We will bury you” by Czechoslovak general Jan Sejna.
He defected in February 1968. He was [allegedly] murdered [poisoned] in 1997, most likely by the Russians, because he testified in front of representative Bob Dornan’s U.S. Congressional Committee on U.S. POWs.”

Thank you for the links. Now I will try to find time to locate the floppy discs containing my original notes and documents (late ‘80’s).
The matter of unclaimed American POWs is an extremely important topic that reaches back at least to WWI with some of the same parties; it has been the subject of a number of Congressional Hearings.
It appears author of the website is also the author of the article you posted .
It also appears the author has some military credentials:
I, Joe Schlatter, Colonel, US Army (Retired), author of this site — am a liberal Democrat
An interesting exercise for many of us it to decide between the claims of competing experts.
“An interesting exercise for many of us it to decide between the claims of competing ‘experts’.”
Isn’t that the truth.
