Fox News examines the Pueblo incident — a story that has all the ingredients of a major Hollywood thriller: high-tech espionage, communist villains and — most-importantly — American military heroes captured and subjected to brutal torture for months on end. And when it was finally over, a brave crew that returned to their homeland only to receive less than a hero's welcome.
We'll take you inside an astonishing tale of miscalculation and mistakes that brought the United States to the brink of war. And it is the story of a staggering intelligence loss that compromised national security for nearly two decades.
Additionally, the Pueblo's captain, Cmdr Lloyd "Pete" Bucher, died on Jan. 28, 2004. In this compelling episode you'll see one of the last interviews ever done with him.
This is a story for which the ending, after all these years, is yet to be written.
