    Just thinking out loud you understand, but if any reader happens to have the ear of Charlie Rangel you might want to suggest he read a book that starts off with…THE TRUTH and ends with THE TRUTH.
             
    Opening up comments(1) about his own book titled “Unwanted Dead or Alive”” Robert Pelton notes this…
    “An expose of the worst act of treason in our history — the Betrayal of American POWs following World War 11, the Korean conflict and the debacle in Vietnam. A shocking expose of the shameful betrayal and astounding cover up regarding American military men who were deliberately left behind following World War 11, the Korean War and the debacle in Vietnam.
    How American soldiers and marines were abandoned in Russian and Chinese slave labor camps.”

    And further along this significant reference…
    “And how the attitude of our leaders followed the view espoused by Henry “Bor” Kissinger: “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”

    And Harriet Ison, Charge d’ Affairs — United States Embassy in Vientiane, Laos, 1990: “You do not understand … there is a greater destiny for our foreign policy in Asia and the POWs are expendable in pursuit of that policy.”
    (break)
    “And in July of 1990, Colonel Joseph A. Schlatter, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Special Office for POWIMIAs, brazenly continued the big lie. He boldly declared: “If we look at everything we collected during the war and everything we’ve collected since the war, we don’t find any evidence that Americans are captive.”
    (break)
    “On January 23, 1973, Richard Nixon flagrant lied to the American people. He said: “All American prisoners of war throughout Indochina will be released” and that America would have “the fullest possible accounting for all those who are missing-in-action.”
    Nixon knew better!”

    Finally…

    “Navy Captain and fighter pilot Eugene “Red” McDaniel sums it up best when he declared: “If had known as a POW, what I know now about my government, I could not have lived the 2110 days I spent in captivity.
    “I was prepared to fight; I was prepared to be wounded; I was prepared to be captured; I was even prepared to die — but I wasn’t prepared to be abandoned!””

    Almost too much for the mind to believe and the heart to accept. Patriotic young men all, who offered up their lives in service to the call of their country, REGARDLESS of whether they agreed or disagreed with that call, ABANDONED by SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS of that same country. One must dig beyond the obvious surface illusions to get at THE TRUTH for the TRUTH is always camouflaged by political agendas of those who crave power and influence over others. I and other dedicated vets wear that mantle of responsibility to ADVOCATE FOR THE TRUTH with brotherly pride and a personal humility. TO NEVER FORGET!
