In My opinion,NcAmnesty is no hero. He was a total traitor in VietNam. He told the NVA everything he knew!!(including flight plans and tactics) and he was so loved by the bastards he had “special quarters”. After we bombed them into total submission ( NIXON), he was the first for prisoner release!! but he begged them “no don’t do that to me — put me in the middle of your capitulating release of POWS so I don’t stand out as your favorite” I am of the opinion that he was a coward and a traitor and I am not alone. Many prisoners still alive today hate MC amnesty>
When you are tortured by pros, everyone tells or dies. Your two examples are things already known by the enemy. The purpose is to break you for propaganda not to collect intel.
