  •  I've doubts about McCain even in military service (4+ / 0-)

    Given the PR cover-up of the circumstances of Pat Tillman's death and given John McCain's piloting history, I sometimes wonder if he was shot down in Vietnam because of pilot error and if that was covered up to create a war hero.  Looking into that is probably a project for the future.

      this coverup was arranged while he was being tortured and held captive.

    •  I doubt he was shot-down due to pilot error... (4+ / 0-)

      ....compared to our ECM at the time the SAM's were quite effective. Then I again, I've often wondered if what happened on the Forrestal was an accident or if he bumped something in the cockpit.

      I truly feel for him and his years in captivity. However, that experience doesn't make one qualified within the Intelligence arena. The only thing it made him qualified for was to tell Bushco how full of crap they were regarding torture. That's where his experience has cache, but it's the only place.
