“War hero” John McCain suppresses information on America’s still-missing POWs

American VN War POWsAmerican POWs captured by the communist North Vietnamese

I know Conservatives who are critical of Senator John McCain’s (R-Arizona) politics but nevertheless still hold an admiration and respect for McCain for having been a prisoner of war (POW) in the Vietnam War. Indeed, McCain successfully parlayed his years as a POW into potent political capital as a war hero and patriot.

It is therefore extremely important that the truth be told about McCain’s betrayal of POWs.

Sydney Schanberg is an award-winning (including a Pulitzer) long-time journalist best known for his book, The Death and Life of Dith Pran, on which the 1984 Academy Award-winning movie “The Killing Fields” was based.

In the following explosive article for The American Conservative, Schanberg uncovers the role McCain had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. The article is long, so please pace yourself.

A big h/t to my friend, John Molloy, Chairman of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition.
