In the summer of 2010, House Resolution 1489 was introduced calling for an independent international investigation of the April 10, plane crash in Russia that killed Poland’s president Lech Kaczynski and 95 other individuals. President Kaczynski and his wife, senior Polish military officers, Poland’s deputy foreign minister, 12 members of the Polish Parliament, senior members of the Polish clergy, were all on their way to honor the 22,000 Polish officers killed at Katyn by the Soviet Secret Police in 1940, when the plane crashed just six miles from Katyn. Hear from someone impacted by the catastrophe and close to the investigation. What really happened on April 10, 2010? Why did the administration have no interest in an investigation?
