    As a Vietnam era veteran I am reluctant to post what could be perceived as propaganda, the reader needs to decide.

    "Hero" John McCain as Phony and Collaborator: What Really Happened When He Was a POW?

    By Alexander Cockburn

    "John McCain’s been getting kid-glove treatment from the press for years, ever since he wriggled free of the Keating scandal and his profitable association – another collaboration, you might say -- with the nation’s top bank swindler in the 1980s. But nothing equals the astounding tact with which his claque on the press bus avoids the topic of McCain’s collaborating with his Vietnamese captors after he’d been shot down.

    How McCain behaved when he was a prisoner is key. McCain is probably the most unstable man ever to have got this close to the White House. He’s one election away from it. Republican senator Thad Cochrane has openly said he trembles at the thought of an unstable McCain in the Oval Office with his finger on the nuclear trigger."

    I would think reluctance would preclude posting such unsubstantiated garbage.

    The only "fact" I see is that IF YOU SUBSCRIBE, all will be revealed. How obvious is THAT?:rolleyes:

    After looking at it again I agree.
