Letter to the Editor
When I went to school they taught us that Washington chopped down the cherry tree saying “I can not tell a lie”. We also were told that Lincoln walked 10 miles to pay back a penny. Both stories are just political fables. Now we are told that John McCain was a tortured POW and riding a bus called the “Straight Talk Express”. But I’m beginning to wonder about McCain’s history as a POW in light of him caving into Bush allowing Bush to keep torturing prisoners in secret foreign torture camps. I think McCain’s story is also a fable.
McCain is the son of an admiral and it is known that he got special treatment when he was supposedly held in North Vietnam as a POW. I think that maybe McCain either wasn’t really tortured like the real troops were because if he were he wouldn’t have caved in to let Bush do the same sort of thing that the Commies did to us.
Any senator who supports legalized torture is committing treason to the Constitution and undermines everything America stands for. America is not a country of barbarians and people like John McCain who tells fables about his war experience and pretends to be truthful should be recaptured by an enemy and treated under the same laws that he proposes the Senate pass. Torture is an evil practice and America should not embrace it.
