By now everyone has heard how John McCain was "tortured" repeatedly by his North Vietnamese captors. Maybe this is all another big republican lie to garner votes.

I can't speak for anyone else but the Vietnamese guy is just as believable...if not more so...then the (lying) republican!

From UK Times Online via Buzz Flash :

‘John McCain was never tortured in my jail’, says Tran Trong Duyet

Tran Trong Duyet, the former prison director who now surrounds himself with caged birds in a house in Hai Phong, first met Mr McCain a year after he had been shot down. He recalls a defiant rule-breaker, the patriotic son of an admiral and a fervent believer in the war. What he does not recall, however, is a victim of torture or violence. “I never tortured or mistreated the PoWs and nor did my staff,” says Mr Duyet in contradiction of Mr McCain’s account and those of other prisoners. “The Americans were dropping bombs on military and civilian targets – so it’s not as if they had important information we needed to extract.” Mr Duyet says that he sympathises with Mr McCain and other PoWs for claiming that they were tortured. “It’s up to the Americans to decide whether or not he counts as a hero. He was very brave, very manly, he dared to argue with me and he was very intelligent. But all the talk of being tortured is for the sake of votes.”
