Hello Dale,

LL>> You want a true American hero? Here's two of them -

LL>> John McCain and John Kerry, both veterans of Vietnam,
LL>> and both recipients of the Purple Heart.

GD>> John "songbird" McCain is a looser, no not because he was captured,
GD>> because he sang like a songbird by his own words "I'll give military
GD>> information if you will take me to the hospital."

DS> Prove it. Other than echoing a debunked fox news(?) report, you have no
DS> basis for that claim. Take a look at the snoops article for real
DS> information.

KING: Colonel Hackworth, you were never captured, thank the heavens.
How well are people trained in the military for capture?

DAVID HACKWORTH, COL., U.S. ARMY (RET.): Aviation folks really get
excellent training, as does special forces. And then the regular
military, a lesser amount. I think that units that are logistical
units need to really sharpen up their hard training and get like
it used to be where everybody basically is a rifleman.

Although the discussion was about GWB's invasion of Iraq, Col.
Hackworth's comments concerning how US prisoners of war are treated
should be noted, given his experience.

John McCain did what duty required. His handlers are the ones
to blame, for having built him up as some kind of American superhero.
However, that does not totally absolve McCain, as noted by Col.
Hackworth in my previous post.
