Perhaps the biggest traitor in the Washington swamp is non other than Senator John McCain. The man who stabbed President Donald Trump in the back has even more secrets that are beginning to come out. New information has surfaced about his direct ties to Muslim terrorists as well as the London bomber. What may be even scarier is information leading us to believe that he is funded by Saudi terrorists as well as the most corrupt man alive, George Soros. We’ve seen McCain’s true colors begin to show ever since Trump made his way into office. Some Americans are still under the impression that McCain is a Vietnam “war hero,” however, it is time for the truth to come out.
Many aren’t aware that McCain had strong family ties to right ranking Naval commanders at the time he was in the military. Both his father and grandfather were four-star admirals. Because of his ties, most of McCain’s scandals in the Navy were overlooked and forgotten. His military records were sealed.
Other news came out about McCain a few weeks back explaining that he was responsible for a horrific incident that took place on the USS Forrestal Aircraft Carrier back on July 31st 1967. McCain’s choice to do a “wet start” of the plane he was in charge of actually killed 134 sailors. This was the worst lost the Navy has ever seen to this day. The only reason you may never have even heard about it was because McCain’s dad was a four-star admiral. McCain got off without so much as a slap on the wrist. Unbelievably, he was granted permission to continue serving in the Navy. He was later responsible for even more deaths.
Just three months after McCain got 134 men killed due to an error on his part, in October of 1967, he was assigned to be a part of the bombing mission over Hanoi. He was shot down and captured by the North Vietnamese troops. They held him prisoner of war until 1973. Upon his release, McCain milked his POW story to gain political prominence. His title of “war hero” got him to his spot as a United States Senator.
The word “hero” doesn’t accurately describe a man who singlehandedly cost us the lives of so many others. In his closet full of skeletons is yet another scandal. McCain helped hide a government scandal for years. He hid information about American prisoners in Vietnam who didn’t return home. He used his seat as a senator to sponsor federal laws that kept the existence of these POWs hidden through classified documents.
These aren’t little secrets that McCain was helping hide, either. It didn’t matters that there was sworn testimony by TWO Defense Secretaries of “the men left behind” back in Vietnam, Senator McCain didn’t stop lying, stating that there were no survivors. The POW families who were waiting to know what happened about their loved ones were devastated. Tons of government documents proved that there were in fact HUNDREDS of men left behind as POWs in Vietnam and were not returned home when President Nixon signed the peace treaty in January of 1973. Merely 591 men were released in Hanoi. John McCain was one of them.
When the war was over, President Nixon made a promise to the Vietnamese to grant a $3.25 billion amount in “postwar reconstruction” aid “without any political conditions.” What most weren’t aware of was the stipulation of this promise. Nixon added that Congress must be in approval of the funds, and that approval never came. Nanoi was so angry that the American government had lied that they kept the hundreds of POWs.
Freedom Daily wrote:
CIA whistleblowers said that the government wanted to keep these missing men a secret, because as more years passed, it became more and more difficult for the government to admit that it knew about the prisoners that were left behind. Years later, CIA officials admitted that their intel indicated that the remaining POWs were eventually executed by the Vietnamese, as they were no longer useful bargaining chips.
After the Pentagon’s POW/MIA office was publicly shamed by internal whistleblowers that there were in fact still men in Vietnam being held as POWs, the pressure from the families and Vietnam veterans finally forced the government in 1991 to create the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs, to investigate these allegations. John Kerry was made chairman of the board, and McCain became its most pivotal member. In the end, this committee became part of the debunking machine, and McCain would become paramount to sweeping the entire atrocity of these forgotten POWs under the rug.
But what people don’t know is John McCain’s vital role in keeping this story about these abandoned POWs hidden from the American public, as a traitor who completely turned his back on his brothers-in-arms who had remained in captivity by the Vietnamese.
Then, in the 1990s, “the Truth Bill” was proposed to Congress. This bill would have allowed the truth to come out about these POWs. The Pentagon along with Senator McCain (of course) opposed the bill. It was stopped in its tracks. People were so angry that the bill was written off, so McCain and Pentagon officials tried to lie their way out and cover their own butts. A few months later, the “McCain Bill” was proposed. The bill became a law in 1991. All it did was make it impossible for the families who were missing their loved ones to discover the truth. Later in 1991, the Senate Select Committee was formed. McCain and John Kerry worked together to hide the very last bit of evidence on the POWs.
The American Conservative also wrote about other things that McCain did to completely ruin the lives of these POWs. He wrote a sickening amendment to the Missing Service Personnel Act. This amendment took away any obligation that the commanders had before to looking for missing men quickly and report any incidents to the Pentagon.
The American Conservative reported:
“McCain was also instrumental in amending the Missing Service Personnel Act, which had been strengthened in 1995 by POW advocates to include criminal penalties, saying, ‘Any government official who knowingly and willfully withholds from the file of a missing person any information relating to the disappearance or whereabouts and status of a missing person shall be fined as provided in Title 18 or imprisoned not more than one year or both.’ A year later, in a closed House-Senate conference on an unrelated military bill, McCain, at the behest of the Pentagon, attached a crippling amendment to the act, stripping out its only enforcement teeth, the criminal penalties, and reducing the obligations of commanders in the field to speedily search for missing men and to report the incidents to the Pentagon.”
“About the relaxation of POW/MIA obligations on commanders in the field, a public McCain memo said, ‘This transfers the bureaucracy involved out of the [battle] field to Washington.” He wrote that the original legislation, if left intact, “would accomplish nothing but create new jobs for lawyers and turn military commanders into clerks.’”
“McCain argued that keeping the criminal penalties would have made it impossible for the Pentagon to find staffers willing to work on POW/MIA matters. That’s an odd argument to make. Were staffers only “willing to work” if they were allowed to conceal POW records? By eviscerating the law, McCain gave his stamp of approval to the government policy of debunking the existence of live POWs.”
The worst of it all is that Senator McCain insisted that all the evidence (documents, witnesses, satellite photos) should be buried. He pretended that the entire story was an “unpatriotic myth.” He even dubbed the testimony of anyone who came forward the “bizarre rantings of the MIA hobbyists.”
This man is nothing near a “war hero.” He singlehandedly killed more than a hundred American men and who knows how many more he let suffer at the hands of the Vietnamese when they were taken as POWs. The bottom line is Senator John McCain cannot be trusted.
