I will never forgive this.
I will never forget this.
As a consequence of her treason, many POW's suffered needlessly, more than they were already suffering.

Despite attempts to down play what she did... many tens of thousands of Americans thought what she did was distasteful. But we are a forgiving country.

Rich Hollywoods types are often given special privledges plus Tricky Dick had respect for her Dad... the late great Henry Fonda. Thank goodness Nixon ended the war that began with JFK and LBJ. Too bad for all our troops that had to serve in this one.

It was the Jane Fonda and John Kerry types that made these boys come back in shame. They were even spit on at airports. So you can't excuse that.

Amazing haw the music takes you back. Lots of buddys on that wall. Do you remember AFN and Charlie Tuna and Chris Noel? Helped to retain some of my sanity.

She did ask for forgiveness for her actions in later years. We need to let it go now.

I'm not making excuses for her, just trying to explain why so few objected.

Nixon's DOJ had every opportunity to deny her a visa but failed to do so. Why do suppose they granted her one? Because people would have accused him of a double standard by going to China and declaring Mao an ally after he financed the opposition in the war.

So who, then, showed more contempt for our soldiers?
