Just In: McCain Faced Execution For Treason?!? Here’s What He Doesn’t Want You To Know!

Senator John McCain is back in his favorite place, the headlines. The man has always been!

The man has always been a go-to for reporters whenever they’re itching to get a Republican to trash his other party members. The more conservative, the more hatred McCain spits their way.

He’s been leading the Republican charge against Trump, likely very jealous that someone like Trump was able to succeed where he failed, and against an amateur politician in Obama at that.

As reported at the Powdered Whig Society, the mythos surrounding McCain is very powerful, and certainly the reason he has made it so far in the political world. But not everything you’ve heard about his heroic past is true.

During the presidential campaign, Trump had some choice words for the senator, questioning his patriotism at times, and daring to challenge the hero mythos that has been built around McCain. A lot of folks will immediately refuse to listen to you is you don’t call McCain a hero, or even begin to question his service.

But the truth about his infamous time as a POW in a Vietnam is not as cut and dry as it’s made out to be. Even if every claim about his past was true, it doesn’t excuse his awful political record, but unfortunately, many feel it difficult to criticize him precisely because of his past service. Which is wrong, and quite frankly, dangerous.

At least 1,205 American POWs were kept by North Vietnam according to records recovered at the end of the Cold War. President’s Clinton and Russia’s Boris Yeltsin instituted a search of Russia’s gulags looking for their remains with no success.

In 1993, armed with testimony from a former high-ranking Czech security official, a systematic search of archives in Prague that recorded the fate of 200 missing US POWs from Vietnam was mysteriously blocked by Senator John McCain.

Apparently, 33 POWs faced execution for treason after Vietnam until Nixon pardoned all POWs. On that list was none other than McCain himself.

Why? Well, according to Colonel Ted Guy, who was McCain’s commander was a POW, the senator collaborated with the communist Vietcong.McCain has also been accused of spilling information that resulted in the downing of 60 US aircraft, and training some of the North Vietnamese air defense personnel.

To top things off, McCain is also accused of making 30 propaganda videos against the US, which he moved to have classified once he became a senator. There are other accusations, but these are the most widely substantiated of the lot.

McCain owes his career to the fact he was a POW. His backstory propelled him to the Senate, where he’s been pushing bad policy ever since. We must remember that just because someone did something good or heroic in the past, it doesn’t make them above reproach in the present.
