Crossed Out

Andrew Sullivan’s suspicion that McCain embellished or out-and-out-invented the story of a Vietnamese guard’s drawing a cross in the ground to cheer him up one Christmas may be off base, or maybe even just mean. But … I can’t dismiss it. The NVA who guarded our guys were notoriously tough and brutal. Most of them should’ve been hung long ago as war criminals (though, granted, a lot of them no doubt honestly felt the same way about the pilots they were guarding). I don’t feature any of them doing anything to help a POW, especially one as non-cooperative as McCain.
