"The Most Flawed Presidential Candidate In History" - Roland C. Eyears
Decorated Ex Marine says -- John McCain is no Hero
It looks like opponents of McCain for President should circulate this information for authentication and public discussion as soon as possible? Maybe this can help Ron Paul win the Republican nomination?

John Sidney McCain III -
The Most Flawed Presidential Candidate in U.S. History
It is now clear that what is left of the Republicon
Party, after being fatally poisoned by the Bush
administration, intends to commit suicide by
nominating Senator John McCain (R-Hanoi)
for the presidency. Where do I start?
THE EARLY YEARS
McCain spent his boyhood in exclusive boarding
schools where staffers were paid to put up with
his tirades. We all did some immature things
before we matured. But with McCain,
the tirades continue today.
Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals,
there is scant chance he would have been admitted
to the U.S. Naval Academy. Given his behavior
patterns and academics, had he not been the son
and grandson of admirals, there is little doubt he
would have been thrown out. Instead, in 1958 he
managed to graduate 894 out of 899. Had he not
been the son and grandson of admirals, there is no
chance he would have been accepted into the
prestigious naval flight training program over
far better qualified officers. On his way to
becoming a North Vietnamese ace, the aviator
lost 3 expensive aircraft on routine, non-combat
flights. Little was made of all that, because he
was, you know, the son and grandson of admirals.
McCain's most horrendous loss occurred in
1967 on the USS Forrestal. Well, not
horrendous for him. The starter motor switch
on the A4E Skyhawk allowed fuel to pool in
the engine. When the aircraft was "wet-started,"
an impressive flame would shoot from the tail.
It was one of the ways young hot-shots got
their jollies. Investigators and survivors
took the position that McCain deliberately
wet-started to harass the F4 pilot directly
behind him. The cook off launched an
M34 Zuni rocket that tore through the
Skyhawk's fuel tank, released a thousand
pound bomb, and ignited a fire that killed
the pilot plus 167 men. Before the tally
of dead and dying was complete, the son
and grandson of admirals had been
transferred to the USS Oriskany.
As a rising naval officer, McCain was
surrounded by rumors of numerous
adulterous affairs, such as used to be
called "conduct unbecoming an officer."
Author and biographer Robert Timberg
has detailed several of McCain's sexual
relationships with subordinates when
serving as a Squadron Leader and an
Executive Officer. I think we all know
such behavior is a clear violation of the
Uniform Code of Military Justice, in
other words, a crime.
When McCain's application to the
National War College was rejected,
according to noted author and researcher
Joel Skousen, he whined to daddy who
pulled strings with the Secretary
of the Navy.
PRISONER OR HONORED GUEST?
McCain's 5 1/2-year stay at the Hanoi Hilton
(officially Hoa Loa Prison) has ever since
been the subject of great controversy.
He maintains that he was tortured and
otherwise badly mistreated. One of many
who disagree is Dennis Johnson, imprisoned
at Hanoi and never given treatment for his
broken leg. He reports that every time he
saw McCain, who was generally kept
segregated, the man was clean-shaven,
dressed in fresh clothes, and appeared
comfortable among North Vietnamese Army
officers. He adds that he frequently heard
McCain's collaborative statements broadcast
over the prison's loud speakers.
On October 26, 1967, McCain's A-4
Skyhawk was shot down over Hanoi .
The fractures of 1 leg and both arms
were reportedly due to his failure to
tuck them in during ejection.
According to U.S. News & World Report
(May 14, 1973), McCain didn't wait
long before offering military information
in return for medical care. While an
extraordinary patient at Gi Lam Hospital,
he was visited by a number of dignitaries,
including, to quote McCain himself,
General Vo Nguyen Giap, the national
hero of Dienbienphu.
Jack McLamb is a highly respected
name in law enforcement circles.
After 9 years of clandestine operations
in Cambodia and unmentionable areas,
he returned home to Phoenix where he
became one of the most decorated
police officers on record. Twice McLamb
was named Officer of the Year. He went
on to become an FBI hostage negotiator.
This man has stated that every one of
the many former POWs he has talked
with consider McCain a traitor.
States McLamb, "He was never tortured...
The Vietnamese Communists called him
the Songbird, that's his code name,
Songbird McCain, because he just came
into the camp singing and telling them
everything they wanted to know."
McLamb further quotes former POWs
as saying McCain starred in 32 propaganda
videos in which he denounced his country
The Glavnoje Razvedyvatel'noje Upravlenije
is the Soviet's military intelligence division.
Numerous sources confirm that during the
Nam Era, the English-speaking Vietnamese
who conducted interrogations of American
prisoners were always overseen by
Russian GRU officers. The ranking GRU
officer at the Hanoi Hilton had a multilingual
teenage son who was tasked with translating
all interrogation reports into Russian.
He would become known only as T.
According to T who interpreted all
interrogations and notes pertaining to
McCain during the latter's stay from
December, 1969, to March, 1973, when a
well-fed looking McCain's was released,
privileges were extended. These included
time at a furnished apartment in
Hanoi -- furnished with 2 prostitutes.
McCain would attribute such absences
to solitary confinement.
It has been widely reported that following
his father's appointment as CINCPAC
Commander-in-Chief of all U.S. forces in
the Vietnam theater of operations,
McCain was offered an immediate
parole. McCain insists that he refused
such a preference. Others insist that his
father refused to allow such a preference.
In any event, such an offer would have
required the approval of the Soviet
masters, and T would have seen
documentation. He has no recollection
of such an offer.
In 1991 the Soviet Union was in a state
of collapse. People and things were up
for grabs. During that thaw, a mass
document swap took place between the
KGB and CIA. All T's translations were
included. If these dots are really
connected, it is small wonder that McCain
had fought consistently to keep all files
sealed, block any attempts to retrieve
POWs, and establish the friendliest of
relations with his former tormentors.
Imagine the possibilities. A Clintonian
leak during the presidential campaign.
Or, in the unlikely event of a McCain
victory, blackmail of the
It is public record that Admiral McCain
was on hand to greet his son upon return.
According to Major Mark A. Smith
( USA Retired), a Green Beret and
former POW, a trusted friend of his
accompanied the Admiral that day.
Later, when the friend referred to that
meeting, McCain became enraged,
volunteered that he had received
"no special treatment," and then denied
that his father was there.
In 1989 legislation known as
The Truth Bill was introduced in
the U.S. House. It required the
Department of Defense to publish
the names and information on all
unaccounted for POWs, MIAs, and
KIAs in WW II, the Korean War,
and Vietnam . It languished and was
resurrected 2 years later.
Then came the McCain Bill, promptly
enacted, that blocked such information.
The DoD does not even have to
acknowledge confirmed sightings
of live Americans.
TEMPER AND TEMPERMENT
The senator's temper and temperament
remain in question. His biographer
quotes him: "At the smallest provocation
I would go off into a mad frenzy, and
then suddenly crash to the floor
unconscious." Has he moderated
over time? Apparently. Somewhat.
Senators who have had McCain scream
hyphenated obscenities at them
nose-to-nose include Rick Santorum,
Richard Shelby, Thad Cochran, and
James Inhofe. Most colleagues decline
comment. The man has been called
