John McCain's Continuing Disservice to AmericaPolitical Perspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
First a friend to communist captors, now he's kissing cheeks with the terrorists, McCain must be stopped.
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - Has John McCain lost his mind? His illegal meeting with Sunni terrorists in Syria is the latest stain on this warmonger's record. He's a morally repugnant low life rich guy who does nothing to this country but a disservice. I have written before that McCain is the Manchurian Candidate, the one who was programmed long ago to destroy this nation from within.
Groups are petitioning for McCain's arrest, he crossed the line too far with his latest stunt in Syria. He's hanging out with the people who pose the biggest threat to everything we as Americans believe in. I am known for my advocacy of Islam, and I am also smart enough to know who is and who isn't a threat. The people McCain is spending time with are the same in many cases, who fought Americans in Iraq. But then it all fits together, the more you know about McCain.
For those thinking that McCain is a former POW deserving of our respect, I would counter by saying men like Robert Garwood USMC, the first POW captured in Vietnam, and amazingly the last to be released, four years after the final conclusion of the war, deserve a lot more. McCain set upon Garwood like a rabid dog after his 1979 release from captivity, and his campaign to discredit this Marine was very successful. There is a movie about this story that stars Ralph Machio as Garwood.
McCain and John Kerry were no friend for the families of POW's and MIA's, they did everything to deter their attempts to locate living relatives, they insisted that no Americans were alive in Vietnam, and then came Garwood to discredit all of that hype, so they in turn discredited him.
Remember that McCain was the son of one of the Navy's top ranking officers. I was contacted by a Vietnam War Marine who told me that he and his platoon killed Viet Cong (VC) who were transporting film reels. The Marines took the reels back to their base at the conclusion of their mission.
On the film, I was told, was McCain selling out his fellow POW's and his nation in one fell swoop. The films never saw the light of day, that is because McCain was connected, but this Marine told me what McCain said was damaging, and he believed McCain to be a traitor. I can't put into words how much this Marine hated John McCain and everything he represents. I can't verify the story about the film reel, but I will tell you that the vast majority of Marine combat veterans don't lie about their wartime experiences.
