McCain = Kerry

Conservative media folk like to paint John Kerry as a defacto traitor.  Or at least as a wimp.  His Swift Boat companions did derail him, albeit temporarily.  And now he’s out there making innocuous statements about war, terrorism and Iran.  As the United States’ Secretary of State.

Who knew?

Speaking of who knew (this is what’s known as a segue – albeit a poor one) RINO Arizona Senator John McCain has always been a mystery to me.  Sometime-Republican, sometime-conservative, sometime NOT, the man has made more waffles than the WAFFLE HOUSE!

And now THIS:

The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.

Eighteen months ago, TAC publisher Ron Unz discovered an astonishing account of the role the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. Below, we present in full Sydney Schanberg’s explosive story.

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Almost as striking is the manner in which the mainstream press has shied from reporting the POW story and McCain’s role in it, even as the Republican Party has made McCain’s military service the focus of his presidential campaign. Reporters who had covered the Vietnam War turned their heads and walked in other directions. McCain doesn’t talk about the missing men, and the press never asks him about them.

The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a special forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington—and even sworn testimony by two Defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number—the documents indicate probably hundreds—of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

Mass of Evidence
I always thought that the guy (or gal) who occupied Barry Goldwater’s Senate seat should be more conservative.  or at least more principled.  Perhaps he’s just as crooked as his opposite number, Hillary Clinton!?

  1. It will be interesting how this shakes out. I wonder…if there is substance there, why didn’t the Dems drag it out in a prez campaign? (I’m sure pointing fingers wave in a LOT of different directions)
    That men were left behind in a fustercluck war in a jungle doesn’t really surprise me.

    • Perhaps they were not aware of it?
      Stranger things have happened…

      Last I heard, there were guys in N. Korea, still, rotting away.

    • Because McCain agreed not to challenge Obama’s (non) eligibility. McCain’s candidacy was a sham from the start. He was simply a place-holder to make it look as if the Republicans had actually fielded a candidate, when the plan was to make Obama’s election a “shoo-in”

      Wake up. The Democrats have held this info over McCain’s head for years. He is not only a RINO, he is also a traitor to the men he _knew_ were left behind. I’m sure Admiral McCain also encouraged him to keep his mouth shut. Especially about what John gave up during all of those “quality time” visits the North Vietnamese and Chinese spent with him during his stay in Hanoi. I’d bet that some of the men left behind might have spoken out about McCain, and consequently couldn’t be allowed to return.

      And yes, I’d say this to the bastard’s face. In case you are unaware of it, McCain is the father (along with Lierbermann) of NDAA, and fully supported the Patriot Act. He is no patriot, no conservative, and has no honor. He considers all of us – including other vets – to be “peasants” who need to be told what to do. His elite upbringing, and the years his political career has been fostered and guided, are tied in with the agenda of the Left, and the CFR.

  2. I have to agree with RegT2000. The RINO’s a disgrace, at best.
