Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

POW

Have you ever wondered how it came to be that John McCain was actually in charge of his release date when he was a North Vietnamese POW? I mean, it is McCain's claim and now the claim of the Republican Party that John McCain is a genuine war hero because he refused to be released out of sequence, refused an early release. How did he do that? How was it that the North Vietnamese weren't in control of the release date? What authority did McCain have over the North Vietnamese in this matter?
Well it turns out that McCain has other problems as well concerning American POWs after the end of the war. An online article in The Nation Institute dated September 18, 2008, claiming to be an expanded version of an October 6, 2008 article in The Nation, delves into McCain's record in Congress of obstructing the POW/MIA movement.
John McCain a war hero? Yeah right. Not quite the right stuff for that claim to hold water.
