Big Dan's Big News Oct 2, 2008

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 people would logically imagine to be 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 McCain has made his military service and POW history the focus of his presidential campaign. Reporters who had covered the Vietnam War have also turned their heads and walked in other directions. McCain doesn't talk about the missing men, and the press never asks him about them.

Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain

John McCain: War Hero or North Vietnam's Go-To Collaborator?

Why is it that Senator McCain SUPPORTS anything the VIETNAMESE COMMUNISTS want -- for instance lifting of the trade embargo, normalization, or most favored nation. Yet, Senator McCain's voting record shows a lack of support on many of the American veterans issues OR our abandoned POWs! Why would a former POW HUG HIS FORMER CAPTOR??? I believe Senator McCain's "ACHILLES HEEL" is his behavior during his captivity.

Open Letter to McCain: Withdraw From Presidential Race!

Senator John McCain,

I am recommending that you withdraw from the National Presidential Election Process immediately. I am making this recommendation to spare the National Republican Party, and the uninformed American Public, the embarrassment of nominating, and electing a person who collaborated with an enemy and possibly committed treasonous acts.

It is a well known fact that you gave Order of Battle information to the enemy in exchange for individual medical care that was not available to the other POW's. It is also a known fact that you joined several other turncoats in freely making radio broadcasts for the enemy, knowing they were being used to affect the morale of American troops. On several occasions, in violation of the "Code of Conduct for Prisoners of War", you gave unauthorized interviews to foreign nationals, and to ease their efforts, you spoke to them in their native language.

It is also a known fact that Col Ted Guy, USAF, another returned POW, was in the process of drawing-up charges against you and the other turncoats, when President Nixon gave a "blanket pardon" to all who had committed offenses while incarcerated as POW's during the Vietnam War.

Since you have been serving in the House and the Senate, you have constantly hindered every effort to resolve the POW/MIA Issue. You did this while posing as a "friend" of the Issue. Only those knowledgeable of the POW/MIA Issue knew this and tried to refute you. You used your position to disparage these resolution seekers, drastically thwarted the truth, and served as an agent provocateur for whomever it is you owe your allegiance.

I am,

Sgt Maj John R. Holland, US Army, Rtd
3 War Infantry Vet, POW/MIA Activist
Member of the National Republican Party
