3. Truest words McCain ever attested to.

 

It was under duress, however:

"I am a black criminal and I have performed the deeds of an air pirate. I almost died and the Vietnamese people saved my life, thanks to the doctors."

What is anti-American therein? The truth cannot be "anti-American." If anything, it is understated. "Air pirate" sounds harmless compared to what he was really doing.

The honorable alternative to participating in mass murder as an aggressor is to desert. If Bergdahl unlike McCain happened to do that, we should not condemn him.
