Trump Owes John McCain And All POWs A Humble Apology
I rarely agree with Richard Cohen, a liberal Washington Post columnist, but I agree with him concerning Donald Trump's thoughtless and outrageous comments about John McCain and other prisoners of war.
I also agree with Cohen that Trump (and everyone) ought to read Robert Timberg's The Nightingale's Song (although I somehow doubt that Trump reads anything that is not about himself).
As Cohen notes in his column, the book covers McCain's captivity in North Vietnam. The book also covers three other naval academy graduates who went on to serve in Vietnam; Oliver North, James Webb and Robert McFarland.
You can read the rest of the column via the below link:
