I do a lot more research than most, far more than I should,
actually, and I recently came across something on John McCain that took me by
surprise; something I�m sure the vast majority are unaware of.
Did you know McCain was a POW during the Vietnam war?
No, it�s true. For 5� years. I checked it out on Snopes just
to be certain.
The reason hardly anyone has heard of this is because McCain
has kept a pretty tight lid on it, doesn�t like to discuss it at all, and has
always felt that it would dishonor the service of so many of our veterans
and fallen troops if he were to leverage his POW experience in a
cheap and tawdry political manner. That�s why there�s a virtual media blackout
on it, why you�re not likely to hear a word about this at the RNC
convention, and why it took quite a bit of Googling just
to uncover this factual tidbit.
So now, at least, you folks know.
And even though it goes against his incredibly honorable �let�s
not leverage this� philosophy, I think it�s a good idea to
forward this info to all those fence sitters out there.
people only knew what type of character he really is, it might make all
