John McCain constantly uses his Vietnam POW experience as a reason he should be POTUS. Personally, I don’t see how that qualifies anyone to be POTUS but apparently he thinks so.
However, if the truth be known, maybe his POW experience should prevent him from being POTUS. Don’t understand why MSM hasn’t reported on this, but these allegations are quite serious.
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.
There is even more information coming out about this here:
You would think this ex-POW would have more sympathy for Vets and be their champion. But that is not the case.
In reality, McCain’s voting record on Vet’s benefits is abysmal as is detailed at this link:
They have lambasted him for voting against the 21st Century G.I. bill; against providing more money for veterans’ health care, and for a proposal that many regard as an effort to privatize their care.
The 21st Century G.I. bill overwhelmingly passed the Senate last May and was signed into law by President George W. Bush on June 30. The legislation, which Sen. Barack Obama supported, increases educational benefits for post 9/11 veterans who serve a minimum of three years. But McCain opposed the measure, citing as a problem its bestowal of full education benefits to members of the military after just one stint in the armed services.
Add FRAUD to the adjectives that describe the out of touch McCain.
