John McCain ‘Sang Like a Canary’ to the North Vietnamese©

Material Supplied by Colonel Ted Guy

John McCain’s SRO at the Plantation

Dedicated to the Memory of Ted Guy

15 April 2008


       Within the first four days of his capture, while in his initial interrogation (26-30 October 1967) at the Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi, and while recovering from his shootdown wounds in the North Vietnamese military hospital (31 October 1967 through mid-December 1967), John McCain provided military information far beyond that which the Code of Conduct – and that which other POWs, while undergoing extreme torture – refused to divulge to the enemy. Colonel Ted Guy, McCain’s Senior Ranking Officer (SRO) while they were both imprisoned at the Plantation prison complex in Hanoi, gathered information from various sources after the POWs were released in March 1973.


       This information comes from U.S. intercepts of North Vietnamese broadcasts to American servicemen in South Vietnam around 31 October 1967, as well as from dispatches by North Vietnamese and Cuban correspondents — using material from a Nhan Dan (the central organ, the voice of the Communist Party of Vietnam, then and now) correspondent who interviewed John McCain. This material was published on 9 November 1967.  The latter were backed up by the intercepts of these messages by the Message Center of the U.S. Department of Defense National Military Command Center, dated 11 November 1967..


       A separate interview of McCain by a Soviet Union correspondent was published by Pravda in Moscow on 8 December 1967. A copy of this interview is presented below. And finally, McCain was interviewed by a French correspondent who published a series of interviews announced on 25 December 1967 and began 27 December 1967. This interview was intercepted by the Message Center of the U.S. National Command Center and disseminated via message on 1 January 1968.


       Each of these official records of John McCain’s interviews with foreign correspondents, while held captive in Hanoi is reproduced below. Observe that every one of these interviews contains military information — far, far beyond the limits required by the Code of Conduct. Indeed this information is far beyond what nearly all of the POWs were severely tortured to obtain — the insignificant ‘gray area’ information such as nebulous ‘air pirate’ signed statements. Only those few who were turncoats and anti-war sympathizers among our POWs gave up more information to the enemy than did John McCain.


       Indeed, John McCain made good on his promise to his interrogator, ‘the Bug,’ to provide U.S. military information in return for medical attention to his shootdown wounds. See the essay, ‘John McCain as a POW’ for the context of this promise. These interviews are documented below.

      FINALLY – People are talking about this High Treasonous Traitor! Remember too, he CRIED LIKE A BABY, GOT DOWN ON HIS KNEES, AND BEGGED to Kissinger FEET to take him home with him, on the same plane once the treaty was signed. Go back and read this story at McCains Kissingers last Birthday party in NYC! He thanked Kissinger for not listening to him doing this. If Kissinger would have brought this lowlife high treasonous filth with him back, the US people would have viewed it as favoratism because remember, McCains daddy was a High Ranking Congressman! As a War Vet, he has always been a disgrace, and don’t forget John Kerry! He also did a 180 and sold out Veterans for power and money, so he is also equally guilty of high treason, who need to spend the rest of his life in jail, or if found guilty, hanged because remember, the US is still “At War”, which war requires death to traitors… I pray to heaven that those 10s of millions of US citizens who died on the battlefield go after them both, and all US Gov officials today once they leave this planet!

        I have always been attacked whenever I said this by US citizens who didn’t believe this to be true. But now, in your face and welcome to reality! To all of you who automatically “THINK” all Vets are honorable, beware – THEY ARE NOT! Read more on about all the crimes going on inside the military today you also are not suppose to know of.


        Just like all the highest ranking Generals and Admirals today, ARE ALL HIGH TREASONOUS TRAITORS TO THE US FLAG! It starts with General Dempsey, who is the SOLE DICATOR OF THE ENTIRE US Forces. Dempsey “Just also happened” to be HAND SELECTED BY PRES B0 to be the SOLE DICTATOR OF THE ENTIRE MILITARY FORCES, and answers to NO ONE BUT THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF! So you see, the military is 100% run by a criminal equal to BO who runs our nation. One person runs the US,and the other criminal party runs the military. Then yet another criminal runs the Congress, and the other the House of R. See how all this criminal actions start right at the top. Read more on the High Treasonous General Dempsey here (its the only story known about him not by the mass media):

          I love it-a negative! Someone believes each and every military member is a hero? All the lower levels are, as in the linked story states, but all the high Generals and Admirals are NOT! So you still think McCain is and always will be a war hero for selling out his fellow troops, and surpress fellow veterans lives, who he turned his back to and pretended they were nothing to him? Anyone who thinks and does not read the link first, shows they only comment and not read. Since when does a military member who betrays or sells out their oath become a traitor? To anyone who thinks regardless what they do to destroy their fellow troops, are no patriot. yes, the military does have traitors, but the vast majority are Generals and Admirals, who onlyorder people.

      :!: :arrow: Since we are on the subject of high treasonous military, this is a MUST READ! Generals and Admirals have dishonored the US Flag, and committed the highest known military disgrace known to exist. Instead of staying to fight fo rour nation, each were offered a bribed monthly pension of $10k per month to shut up and turn their backs to the crimes going on inside the US military today. Want to read more on how your military is criminally corrupt from General Dempsey down to each General and Admiral, read this. I promise you, it explains everything and why they turned their backs to the US Constitutional Oath they all taken:
