American POWs still alive in Laos?

True? Setanta will know.
If true, I was wondering about the US government's reaction.
It's as follows: We, the US, never pay ransom. We talk only to recognized governments, we negotiate with governments. If we don't get invitation to talks from the government, we put the info in our archives for 50 years.

Recently, Poland has lost a hostage, killed by the Taleban in Pakistan:
The Polish government attempted to help him, but among other things, the Pakistani government was uncooperative (the hostage says so in the video).

Now, Al Qaeda's top brass are somewhere in Pakistan, which is a country not much bigger than Iraq. And Americans again as if think: It's not our matter. The Pakistani government should act.
But this wasn't enough, and unauthorized American air attacks on Pakistani soil started.

I mean, it's some SOP for Americans, not to interfere in a country's internal affairs in such matters. Not to encroach.
