Michael Atwood’s Letter to the Editor (“No respect from here,” Oct. 2) concerning Sen. John McCain’s deplorable service as a member/chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee demonstrated McCain’s complete lack of ensuring that the VA provided timely, professional health care to our nation’s veterans.
McCain has another glaring black mark on his record: that of his total disregard for the presumed hundreds of POWs who never returned after the peace treaty was signed. All attempts by relatives of those POWs to gain further information were angrily and rudely rebuffed by McCain – strange behavior for a former POW, to say the least.
There is a wealth of documents, satellite pictures, electronic intercepts, etc., that has been amassed over the years. McCain has been instrumental during his political career in sponsoring and enacting laws that have suppressed pertinent POW information from being revealed to the general public under the caveat of being classified.
For those readers who would care to read further about McCain’s nefarious exploits, I recommend the following articles: “McCain and the POW Cover-Up,” by Sydney Schandberg, and “Senator John McCain, A Modern Day Benedict Arnold,” by Kelleigh Nelson. You can “Google” them both on the Internet.
McCain has repeatedly proved to be the Democrats’ best friend in Congress – a RINO (Republican in Name Only).
God have mercy on our beloved republic!
