As Pentagon correspondent for The Boston Globe, Bryan Bender must have cringed when the news broke. The backdrop for the final third of his new book is Hawaii's Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), responsible for conducting forensic pathology in some of the world's most forbidding terrain. But only weeks before publication, news outlets charged that JPAC's ceremonial repatriation of long-lost veteran remains was largely a sham designed to deceive a credulous public.
"Bryan Bender reported on the Kennedy family's tight-fisted and iron-willed efforts to keep the official papers of Robert F. Kennedy secret. ... For historians and others who care about the Cold War and events of that period, the stakes are high," writes John Tierney at the Atlantic.
