McCain's Vietnamese Jailer says he was never tortured
Weirdest article I've ever read.... Former jailer supports McCain for President, but says he was never tortured.
From ABC (Australian Broadcasting Company):
"REPUBLICAN US presidential candidate John McCain has got some unexpected support from his former Vietnam War jailer, who said he would vote for the former navy pilot if he could.
Speaking to the BBC from Haiphong, Tran Trong Duyet also insisted that Senator McCain's assertions that he was tortured during his time at the prison were lies, and that no one held there was ever subjected to torture."

BBC article here - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7459946.stm
doesn't even begin to explain it....
And no, it has nothing to do with that crazy Jim Carrey movie...

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. "

BTW-Anybody have a screensaver.Those miscreatnts make me ashamed to be a liberal and a Democrat. I'm ashamed to breathe the same air

Your link conects to a thread where people are disagreeing with the AU story.

27. Here are my thoughts
I have to say that this post being allowed to stay up makes me think twice about DU in general.
Is this really the road we want to go down, to question whether or not all the freed POWs were liars and frauds on the word of one NVA guard? To insinuate that maybe the guard is telling the truth.
This is obviously someone attempting to make DU look like anti-soldier (different then anti-war) assholes.
There is plenty to go after McCain about. But to incite rumors based on the word of someone who claims to be his former captor, especially with the permanent injuries he sustained and the length of time he was held, is really almost unforgivable.
It is a slap in the face to every soldier who survived those camps and a real disrespect to the ones who never came home at all.
