What the F*** makes McCain heroic? His incompetence as a pilot was well known at the time and there were bets by some on how fast he would be shot down. He was ONE among many who were POWs; I’ve had contact in the past with at least 3-4 former POWs and none of them considered themselves heroic, they did consider those who fought back and didn’t make it through the torture heros. His service and POW time are points in time past; it is what he has done and said since that matters. Benedict Arnold was considered to be a hero and Tim McVeigh was a decorated Gulf War veteran. Their accomplishments were points in time and do not give them any pass for what they do or say up to the present.
He says so.
