I received this today from a colleague of mine, who served in the US Navy in his early 20's. I thought it was interesting, to say the least.

What do you think?

HONORING A TRAITOR
This is for all the kids born in the 70's who do not remember this, and didn't have to bear the burden, that our fathers, mothers, and older brothers and sisters had to bear. Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century." Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country but specific men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam.

The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison-the "Hanoi Hilton." Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJ's, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "Peace Activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received. He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and dragged away.

During the subsequent beating, he fell forward upon the camp Commandant's feet, which sent that officer berserk. In '78, the AF Col. still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying days) from the Vietnamese Col.'s frenzied application of a wooden baton. From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the "Hilton"- the first three of which he was "missing in action." His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned, fed, clothed routine in preparation for a "peace delegation" visit.

They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his SSN on it, in the palm of his hand. When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?" Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper.

She took them all without missing a beat. At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge and handed him the little pile of papers. Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Col. Carrigan was almost number four but he survived, which is the only reason we know about her actions that day.

I was a civilian economic development advisor in Vietnam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and held for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement, one year in a cage in Cambodia, and one year in a "black box" in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border.

At one time, I was weighing approximately 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.) We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals."

When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda. I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as "humane and lenient." Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a large amount of steel placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane till my arms dipped.

I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She did not answer me.

This does not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of "100 Years of Great Women." Lest we forget..."100 years of great women" should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots. There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them.

Please take the time to forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that we will never forget.

wow

While that's not exactly what I expected when I saw the thread name, I have to say that's shoc-king. I had only vaguely heard of "Hanoi Jane's" antics during the Vietnam war. It's one thing to disagree with a military action, it's a completely different thing to be party to the torture and exectution of soldiers from your own country. Next time I see a Braves game, I'll be hoping a foul liner down the first base line makes contact with her face. Cnut.

Sort of along my line of thinking, too.

Although this is all “alleged”, it is real disturbing to think that that very well could have happened. Some Vets have gone to a hell of a lot of effort to campaign their story, so.....:confused:

I hope they keep it up, and more of this story gets revealed.

bitch

But how much of the story is fiction? If this were a true story and backed up by some evidence this would have come out a long time ago and some war-vet would have took her out!

I'm only being the devil's advocate by saying this, but shouldn't we hear more than one side of the story before rounding up the lynch mob?

The story posted above was obviously from as biased a point of view as you will find. I personally would like to hear a rebuttal from her camp before I grab my bat and hunt her down.

I always hated the Braves :mad:

I don't believe we need to hear from Jane. As I stated before, I have vaguely heard of this side of the story, with Jane being an anti-war, pro-vc activist. And like I said before, it is one thing to be anti-war, but a totally different thing to put the lives of soldiers in mortal risk. The government of Ho Chi Minh never proved itself to be a reliable source of information, regardless of one's stance regarding the war. This alone is proof enough for me.
