A Message from Orson Swindle

Below is a special message and news article from Orson Swindle,
Lieutenant Colonel, USMC (Ret.). Orson was a prisoner of war in Vietnam
with John McCain and is a longtime friend.

"I'd like to pass along to you what I believe is the most complete
accounting of how my friend, John McCain, helped our nation avoid a
disaster in Iraq.

"When you read this article, you'll understand better what John McCain
was up against. People told him he was wrong. People told him it would
cost him his chance for the nomination for President of the United
States. True to form, John McCain decided to listen to the commanders
on the ground. He'd seen the situation with his own eyes, and his years
of experience in military and foreign affairs convinced him that he
could not ignore what was happening in Iraq, what the commanders were
saying, and the solution that was required." Click here to continue reading Orson Swindle's message.
