Veterans - for or against McCain

Just this morning I came across this website and video about John McCain, when he was a member in 1991-92 of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs.

Watch his disrespectful communication with, and how he mis-used his authority as a Committee member and Senator to run roughshod over, Dolores Alfond, sister of a Vietnam War USAF pilot who was still MIA in 1992 and then-National Chairperson of the National Alliance of Families of POW/MIAs. And how at the end he just walks out of the committee hearing.

Carefully also watch his smilling and friendly, respectful interaction, including the hug at the end, with the North Vietnamese Army colonel who was McCain's interrogator while he was a prisoner-of-war.

Then you might ask yourself why Obama is not using this to smear McCain.
