American POW's Were Abandoned In Vietnam
One of the reasons the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta was stood up at Ft. Bragg in 1977, was to prepare for an eventual rescue of American prisoners still being held in Vietnam. There were verified locations of prisons and prisoners. The likelihood of success for a rescue mission was high. The ultimate decision NOT to make the attempt was a political one. It was not a question of feasibility, or likelihood, or even truth. It was politics. Powerful members of the press in the U.S. knew the truth just as well as the politicians. They colluded in hiding the truth from the American People. We were betrayed and our men in Vietnam and Laos were betrayed.
The story is a sad and amazing one. Read it all here. Let it turn your stomach for a little while. Think of this when you go into the voting booth this fall, and remember: they all knew.
One of the many money quotes from the piece:
"I doubt if one American in twenty is aware that over forty years ago, his government deliberately abandoned hundreds of POWs in Vietnam, and then spent four decades desperately covering up that enormous crime, with the media being a willing co-conspirator. But even if our citizens remain ignorant of that particular dark deed, over the years they have strongly come to suspect their elites are guilty of a vast number of equally heinous offenses, some of which are plausible and others ridiculous; and who can reasonably blame them? If our entire media would willfully ignore “the story of the century” as massively documented by one of its most distinguished members, who can say what other matters might remain hidden from public view?"
