    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) spoke to the FBI and handed over documents last month related to recent stock transactions by her husband that have come under public scrutiny. "Senator Feinstein was asked some basic questions by law enforcement about her husband’s stock transactions. ...She was happy to voluntarily answer those questions to set the record straight and provided additional documents to show she had no involvement in her husband’s transactions," a spokesman said. Feinstein's conversation with the FBI took place in April and the spokesman said that "there have been no follow up actions on this issue." Feinstein's husband sold...

    [Ad-free 51 min video] Soldiers returned from the Vietnam War with harrowing tales of survival, but one was especially remarkable. This is the story of James Stockdale and his fellow prisoners at "Hanoi Hilton," who used spy communications to prompt a daring rescue.

    Towards the end of the video where John McCain's betrayals are exposed By Vietnam Vets And POWs: are found the remarks of former Congressman Dornan's which are accurate and highly plausible but are missing a vital part that deconstructs John McCain's character and the myth about his 'heroism'. Here's the context with reference in italics to the Hanoi Hilton's POW Commanding Officer Admiral James Stockdale in his own words: Admiral (then a USN Captain) Stockdale and all other POWs inside the Hanoi Hilton confirmed the only way to come home early was if Admiral Stockdale granted permission; there was...

    While reading [about the Stockdale Paradox], I had what could only be termed an epiphany. The modern Left are precisely analagous to Stockdale's "Optimists." Their philosophy: if we ignore the global war on terror, the problem will simply go away. Consider, if you will, just a few recent events on the world stage...

    WASHINGTON - This is a tale of two men who were -- each in his own way -- icons of America's searing and bitter experience in Vietnam. Both left us this month, one at age 81 the other at age 91, and they left us wondering what it all meant and what they meant to us. One was a symbol of a nation's failure to succeed in its costly and bloody mission in Vietnam. The other was a symbol of gritty personal courage and simple personal honor while a seemingly helpless prisoner of America's enemies in that war. Gen. William...

    July 28, 2005 The strong do what they will; the weak suffer what they must. - Thucydides Annapolis. First came the memorial service for James Bond Stockdale on July 16 aboard the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan near San Diego - followed Saturday by services and burial at the Naval Academy. Some, for whom Stockdale was perhaps the decisive individual in their lives, were present at both occasions. To the mere everyday rest of us, Stockdale may be best remembered for asking fuddy-duddily in a vice-presidential debate in 1992, as the running mate of Ross Perot, "Why am I here?" But more...
  • A Greatest American Dies and No One Notices: A major missed diagnosis

    A great man died on July 5th. None of the obituaries noted that his greatest gift to America was the one we have, so far, refused. A missed diagnosis of classic proportions! Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale was arguably the most decorated officer in Navy history: 26 personal citations, including the Congressional Medal of Honor for nearly eight years of heroism as a Vietnam POW. But he was famous mostly for his decision to become Ross Perot's 1992 vice presidential running mate, and for that disastrous debate when he came across as, at best, a kindly old buffoon who should...

    Mourners Remember James Stockdale, Vietnam POW and Perot Running Mate The Associated Press Published: Jul 16, 2005 CORONADO, Calif. (AP) - Military officials and family members gathered atop an aircraft carrier Saturday to remember retired Vice Adm. James Stockdale, the highly decorated Navy officer who was Ross Perot's running mate in the 1992 presidential race. The mourners made no mention of Stockdale's bid for vice president during the memorial service aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, focusing instead on his military career, which included spending 7 1/2 years in a North Vietnamese prison and being awarded the Medal of Honor for...

    WORLD DEFENSE REVIEW ^ | July 15, 2005 | Richard Marcinko
    By Richard "Rogue Warrior" Marcinko Special to WORLD DEFENSE REVIEW This is either the most opportune – or the worst – time for me to express my personal views on "ethics" within the framework of the "War on Terrorism." As most of you know, the SEAL community has just suffered its worst loss of teammates, warriors, lovers and family members since World War II. Although nothing unethical occurred during the operation in Afghanistan that cost a total of 19 special operations warriors (11 SEALS and 8 U.S. Army personnel) that I'm aware of today; it never-the-less is a dramatic loss....

    In the 1992 Vice-Presidential Debate, Admiral James Stockdale, the running mate of billionaire Independent H. Ross Perot, began his opening remarks by asking two rhetorical questions, "Who am I and why am I here?" Not much else is remembered about the Stockdale candidacy, including the fact that he was a true hero of the Vietnam War, earning 26 medals and spending 7 years as a POW. His was a resume of genuine heroism most politicans would give their right arm for. "Who am I? Why am I here?" are questions that Senate Republicans need to start answering soon. I'll give...
