And apparently I am one of the few who believe this story. It is hard to even imagine the uplifting this action would have on a POW. I refuse to be cynical and will give him the benefit of the doubt.
A fantastic story... (and I am not a McCain supporter)!
As I mentioned. . .I don't doubt the story. . .necessarily - but rather, it's long-term impact. . .did he EVER mention this before. . .the affect this had on his life etc. . .
Would like to know if this happened with other American prisoners in this camp. . .and wonder also; how many Christian Vietnamese/Viet-Cong there were actually - even amongst the general population.
Remember reading some of the POW's, McCain 'served' with; were neither friends then. . .nor are they fans, now. . .
I believe it too.
Vietnam was largely Catholic.
I think more people doubt the intent of the release of the story, then the story itself. Though given the character etch he's created for himself it's not surprising his account is being considered questionable as well.
