Just the name of John McCain arouses tremendous anger or admiration. Those who hate him are firm in their belief the critically, perhaps terminally-ill Arizona senator – willingly gave up military information to the North Vietnamese during his years as a prisoner-of-war.
Others maintain he is an American hero, who suffered torture at the hands of his captors. They consider him beyond criticism and a victim of some sort of smear campaign. We’ll let you, dear reader, come to you own conclusions on who is right or not about that.
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney stirred up a hornet’s nest recently when he said on the FOX News Channel that John McCain’s nickname at the Hanoi Hilton was “the songbird.” The general inferred that the admiral’s son talked plenty to his interrogators.
In view of Sen. McCain’s brain cancer, many thought the USAF brass hat was out of line in what he said. The blow back was so swift that FOX announced the general would never be invited back on the cable channel’s airwaves again.
We don’t wish to kick a man when he’s down, so we won’t go into the tall grass as to whether or not McCain is all he has been cranked up to be. But we would be remiss to not include in the discussion the fact that a “long lost” recording has turned up in the National Archives that proves one thing for sure it’s McCain’s voice. Even though it’s a scratchy recording, it clearly sounds like the voice of John McCain.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE RECORD
Before we get into the record, our readers should know that Article V of the Military Code of Conduct says the following:
“. . . WHEN QUESTIONED, SHOULD I BECOME A PRISONER-OF-WAR, I AM REQUIRED TO GIVE NAME, RANK, SERVICE NUMBER AND DATE OF BIRTH. I WILL EVADE ANSWERING FURTHER QUESTIONS TO THE UTMOST OF MY ABILITY. I WILL MAKE NO ORAL OR WRITTEN STATEMENTS DISLOYAL TO MY COUNTRY . . . “
Below is a complete transcript of a 1969 broadcast by then LCDR John McCain that pretty much speaks for itself. McCain may have been tortured – and suffered a broken leg and right arm broken in three places when he bailed out of his shot-down A-4 Skyhawk attack jet – we should keep all of this in mind. Other POWs were beaten and tortured, but still refused to broadcast and pro-enemy broadcasts.
We know from experience that any man can be broken. We all have different thresholds of pain that we can endure. McCain reached his breaking point shortly after becoming a prisoner. We have many people on our staff at MilitaryCorruption.com who served in Vietnam and some know people who were incarcerated in the Hotel Hanoi when McCain was there. Many have chosen to avoid the subject altogether, but MilitaryCorruption.com endeavors to bring out the truth and let the chips fall where they may.
We have in our possession a tape recording of John McCain’s broadcast while he was being held as prisoner of war. It is the senator’s voice, as a lieutenant commander in the Navy nearly fifty (50) years ago:
“TO THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DRVN. I’M JOHN SYDNEY McCAIN, 624787, LIEUTENANT COMMANDER, U.S. NAVY. I WAS BORN ON 25 AUGUST 1936 PANAMA. MY HOME STATE IS OREGON. I WAS SHOT DOWN 26 OCTOBER 1967 A4 AIRCRAFT.
“I, AS A U.S. AIRMAN, AM GUILTY OF CRIMES AGAINST THE VIETNAMESE COUNTRY AND PEOPLE. I HAVE BOMBED THEIR CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES AND CAUSED MANY INJURIES, EVEN DEATH TO THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM.
“I WAS CAPTURED IN THE CAPITOL OF HANOI WHILE ATTACKING IT. AFTER I WAS CAPTURED, I WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL IN HANOI WHERE I RECEIVED VERY GOOD TREATMENT.”
“I WAS GIVEN AN OPERATION ON MY LEG WHICH ALLOWED ME TO WALK AGAIN. A CAST WAS PUT ON MY RIGHT ARM, WHICH WAS BROKEN IN THREE PLACES. THE DOCTORS WERE VERY GOOD AND THEY KNEW A GREAT DEAL ABOUT THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE.
“I REMAINED IN THE HOSPITAL FOR SOME TIME AND REGAINED MUCH OF MY HEALTH AND STRENGTH.“
“SINCE I ARRIVED IN THE CAMP OF DETENTION, I HAVE RECEIVED HUMANE TREATMENT AND FOOD, EVEN THOUGH I CAME HERE AS AN AGGRESSOR AND THE PEOPLE WHO I INJURED HAVE MUCH DIFFICULTY IN THEIR LIVING STANDARDS. I WISH TO EXPRESS MY DEEP GRATITUDE FOR MY KIND TREATMENT AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS KINDNESS EXTENDED TO ME.”
With the 24-hour “trash Trump” mainstream media (CNN and MSNBC, especially) praising John McCain as a “war hero” par excellence, we thought giving just a part of the rest of the story would be fair. Again, some believe McCain is a war hero who is never to be questioned. Others believe that while he suffered greatly, he’s not a hero at all. We are not insensitive to what McCain and others endured at that hands of our enemies, but we also believe it’s healthy to get at truth and avoid whitewashing history.
