Eighteen months ago, TAC publisher Ron Unz discovered an astonishing account of the role the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. Below, we present in full Sydney Schanbergs explosive story.

This is a long post and didn't want to post it all....if you go to theamericanconservative.com you should be able to read it, if not, let me know and I'll post the whole thing...
A link to the article would be nice.
Go ahead and post in bite size pieces. McCain is calling conservatives “crazies”. Let’s fling the ‘crazy’ back in his face.
According to General Tran Van Quang is the archives in Moscow - 1205 US prisoners were being held. Quang said that many of the prisoners would be held back from Washington after the accords as bargaining chips for war reparations. General Quang’s report added: “This is a big number, Officially until now we published a list of only 368 prisoners of war.
Intersting that there is some questions if this is true . But under the Reagan Administration there was a request from Vietnam for a $4 Billion ransom for the US POW/MIAs still being held in Vietnam.
Up until 1993 there was the possibility of 600 POW/MIAs still in Vietnam. But it was believed many would no longer be alive
If that's not enough all of the planes waiting their turn had their engines pointed away from the ship out over the sea.
NS025929. This diagram was taken from a drawing provided by USS Forrestal and shows the location of CVW-17 aircraft spotted for launch moments before the fire broke out. From "Naval Aviation News," October 1967 issue.
He’s just repeating DemoRat propaganda from the 2008 election cycle.
The amazing thing is that anyone would think they needed to invent dirt on McCain. I have literally dozens of links for real dirt on him.
McCain, in his hurried egress, more than likely dropped a bomb from his plane in his panic from the fire and the explosives/fuel he was sitting on top of.
That bomb eventually went off from being in the fire, setting off the other explosions, killing the firefighters.
McCain didn't bother to help either fight the fire along with those also untrained in firefighting, or those scrambling to try to rescue any survivors.
Thank you for the spotting diagram, and thanks to those who pointed out that the A-4 didn’t have an afterburner. Am I correct in my understanding that an afterburner is a necessary prerequisite to executing a wet start? (Not a pilot here)
“McCain, in his hurried egress, more than likely dropped a bomb from his plane in his panic from the fire and the explosives/fuel he was sitting on top of.

No any aircraft can have a “Wet Start” and NO McCain did NOT have a WET START!
I’m agreeing with that.
I get that he didn’t. If his aircraft was started in the position that the diagram indicates, it wouldn’t have mattered anyway since the exhaust was pointed over the side, right?
I hadn’t heard the ‘wet start’ theory before today. As far as I’m concerned, it has been put to bed.
