McCain and the POW Cover-Up | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 27, 2018

This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number—the documents indicate probably hundreds—of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

Cambodia and Laos also.

We have seen this before. It is worth reading again.

By SYDNEY SCHANBERG

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Almost as striking is the manner in which the mainstream press has shied from reporting the POW story and McCain’s role in it, even as the Republican Party has made McCain’s military service the focus of his presidential campaign. Reporters who had covered the Vietnam War turned their heads and walked in other directions. McCain doesn’t talk about the missing men, and the press never asks him about them.

The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a special forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington—and even sworn testimony by two Defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number—the documents indicate probably hundreds—of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

Rand Paul: McCain and Graham are blind to the risks in Syria (opinion) – CNN.com

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 20, 2017

Recently, I introduced legislation to ensure that no American weapons are given to terrorist groups, especially in Syria. You wouldn’t think we would have to have legislation to prevent our own government from sending arms to terrorists, but there it is. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 21, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/02/michael-s-rozeff/anti-trump-coup/

John McCain is at the tiller of this coup. A willing minion for David Rockefeller, Soros, arms suppliers, CIA and oil companies.

Bibi Netanyahu’s Worst Nightmare Is Coming True

Posted by M. C. Fox on January 17, 2016

Iran is divesting themselves of nuclear material and centrifuges. Our national intelligence estimates have told us Iran has not been working towards nuclear weapons since 2003 or so. Iran is following all the rules. They are getting their money back and sanctions lifted.

As we have mentioned in the past The Haaretz reported Bibi Netanyahu as telling the Knesset that his fear wasn’t that Iran would not meet disarmament requirements but that they would. Uh oh! Read the rest of this entry »

This Election is Bad News, Once McCain is in Charge Deadlock Will Look Good

Posted by M. C. Fox on November 12, 2014

Drone attacks and interfering in ever more numerous Middle East countries has caused terrorist ranks to sky-rocket. A Russian vassal state’s government is overthrown by the US and replaced by Nazi’s. Now Russia is said to be planning air patrols of the Caribbean.

China is antagonized by increased US troop presence in Australia, now it has stepped up aircraft carrier building, is developing their own stealth aircraft and is hacking away at our cyber security.

All this under a Nobel peace prize-winning president’s guiding hand. Read the rest of this entry »

Who is the Real Commander in Chief-William Kristol, Benjamin Netanyahu or Obama?

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 7, 2012

I agree with Robert Cogan’s recent Erie Times letter arguing that an attack on Iran is not in our interest. I say it is hardly necessary by anyone. Another ineptly conceived and implemented war and the resulting sky rocketing oil prices won’t do us any good. One can read where the 2007 National Intelligence Estimates and the CIA say Iran stopped any nuclear weapon research 10 years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
