The Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain have questions. McCain was a POW for over 5 years. In that time he made, apparently, multiple statements in support of communist North Vietnamese propaganda. In my mind, any POW that says anything to avoid more torture and pain, is absolutely right to do so. But do you get to be president for it? How does that history affect McCain’s mind? And did he cover-up any indication of his true behavior and treatment while a POW?
There is no question that the Vietnam Vets and this blog (among others) will be seen as among the sleazier precincts of the Internet by the MSM for promoting this story. But, we ask, why cover the swift-boating of John Kerry and not this? Why does McCain get a free pass? At some point, you reach a threshold for what having been a POW will grant you. At that point – and I would say being president is definitely a threshold issue – questions should be asked.
This is the defining event of this man’s life. Is anyone challenging the narrative?
