That’s an interesting read on John McShortfuse. I’m not sure I agree with you though. This is the guy that teamed up with John F’in Kerry (who served in Vietnam) to shut down the POW/MIA investigations and silence the families of MIA’s.
John McCain fought bravely in Vietnam.
No doubt about his service.
No doubt about his being tortured and physically incapacitated.
But once the enemy found out he was the son of a politician, he got treated like a king(comparitively).
Once he was freed he went into politics.
The Dems wanted to look good, and since rescuing POW/MIA’s would take a long time and a lot of resources (money), they decided to just ‘sign off’ on those soldiers.
But, they needed partisan support. So, they threatened McCain with exposing his ‘life of Riley’ prison stay.
Kerry negotiated control of the real estate market in South Vietnam for his brother.
And promised McCain if he ever ran for President, he would have the support of ‘the rich and powerful...dems’.
At the presentation of the signed document stating that Kerry and McCain had visited all suspected prison camps and found no POW/MIAs, McCain hung his head in shame as Kerry held up the document for the press.
