January 23, 1968 by North Korea. While monitoring North Korea, the
Pueblo came under attack by North Korean naval forces, primarily motor
torpedo boats, even though U.S. Naval officials and the crew have claimed
the ship was in international waters at the time. North Koreans boarded the
ship and took her to the port at Wonsan. For the next 11 months, Bucher and
his crew were held as POWs by the North Koreans. Initially, they were
treated relatively well, with good food and living accommodations.

LeMay (November 15, 1906 – October 1, 1990) was a general in the United
States Air Force and the vice presidential running mate of American
Independent Party presidential candidate George Wallace in 1968. He is
credited with designing and implementing an effective, but also
controversial, systematic strategic bombing campaign in the Pacific theater
of World War II. During the war, he was known for planning and executing a
massive bombing campaign against cities in Japan and a crippling minelaying
campaign in Japan’s internal waterways. After the war, he unintentionally initiated
the Berlin airlift, then reorganized the Strategic Air Command (SAC) into
an effective instrument of nuclear war. He served as Chief of Staff of the
U.S. Air Force from 1961 until his retirement in 1965.

Sidney Adm.
 – [ 691 Pages, 47.53MB ]
– Sidney William Souers (March 30, 1892 – January 14, 1973) was an
American admiral and intelligence expert. ear Admiral Souers was appointed
as the first Director of Central Intelligence on January 23, 1946 by
President Harry S. Truman. Prior to this, as Deputy Director of Naval
Intelligence, Souers had been one of the architects of the system that came
into being with the President’s directive. He had written the intelligence
chapter of the Eberstadt Report, which advocated a unified intelligence
system. Toward the end of 1945, when the competing plans for a national
intelligence system were deadlocked, Souers’ views had come to the
attention of the President, and he seems to have played a role in breaking
the impasse.
