 Michael Scott Speicher, Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy
The United States has warned Iraq it may become the next target in the war on terror unless it allows U.N. weapons inspectors back in the country to investigate Western claims the country is building weapons of mass destruction.
The report stated that Commander Speicher's aircraft was shot down by an Iraqi jet firing an air-to-air missile, and that the jet crashed in the desert west of Baghdad.
The Navy changed Speicher's status not because it has evidence that he is alive but because an accumulation of facts in recent years led it to doubt earlier signs that he died in a fiery crash, officials said.
