BBC World News Today: Commandant of the Hanoi Hilton Endorses John McCain

"Tran Trong Duyet ... must rank as one of John McCain's more unlikely supporters."

"Four decades ago, during the Vietnam war, Mr Duyet was in charge of the notorious Hoa Lo prison - the place where Mr McCain says he was brutally beaten and tortured during five-and-a-half years as an American prisoner of war."

"'McCain is my friend,' said 75-year-old Mr Duyet as he feeds the caged birds he now keeps in his garden in this coastal city."

"If I was American, I would vote for him."

The article goes on to say: "Cain has since described enduring months of solitary confinement and systematic torture which drove him to try to kill himself."

Mr Duyet's reaction is: '"He did not tell the truth,' retorted Mr Duyet in the article, 'But I can somehow sympathise with him. He lies to American voters in order to get their support for his presidential election."'

Think Mr Duyet will be appearing in McCain endorsement spots?

Here is more of the interview that was left out:

At the same time, he denies prisoners of war were tortured. Despite detailed POW accounts and physical wounds, Duyet claims the presumed Republican presidential nominee made up beatings and solitary confinement in an attempt to win votes.

His statements seem to echo the communist leadership's overall line on America: It insists the torture claims are fabricated, but that Vietnam now considers the U.S. a friend and wants to lay the past to rest. Duyet said one of the reasons he likes McCain for president is the candidate's willingness to forgive and look to the future.

Former jailer calls McCain an old buddy Duyet, 75, grew testy during the interview when repeatedly questioned about torture and why so many other former POWs say they too were mistreated. He preferred to talk about McCain as an old buddy.

"He's tough, has extreme political views and is very conservative," Duyet said. "He's very loyal to the U.S. military, to his beliefs and to his country. In all of our debates, he never admitted that the war was a mistake."

McCain still bears the evidence of his wounds and has described being repeatedly bound and beaten by his captors. After his plane was hit by a surface-to-air missile during a bombing mission over Hanoi in 1967, McCain ejected and suffered a broken leg, two broken arms, and was briefly knocked unconscious. The Vietnamese mob who found him smashed his shoulder and he was bayoneted.

He says medical attention was delayed in an attempt to get him to reveal information and he was held in solitary confinement for over two years.

Jailer says McCain lied about torture to win votes Other former POWs also say they were tortured by communist forces at the jail, and many say they still suffer physical pain from it.

"They are liars. What they said is not true," said Duyet, who was a jailer at Hoa Lo from 1968 until the POW release in 1973, serving as prison chief the last three years. Duyet claimed McCain "invented that story that he was tortured and beaten to win votes."

Asked for a response, the McCain campaign referred The Associated Press to Orson Swindle, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel who was imprisoned with McCain. Swindle said Duyet "has no credibility on every utterance he makes."

This gook is only continuing his communist propaganda. Remember how honest the Vietnamese are? Claiming that after the POW exchange and following the war stating many times that there were no POW's in Vietnam? The claims of humane treatment? The claims of no Geneva Convention violations? McCain should agree to meet this POS and place a .45 to his forehead and turn his head into a fucking canoe.

GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never realized the strength of liberal/conservative feelings in your country (Spunk is Canadian).

Glad the use of dueling pistols is outlawed. Or is it?
