Here is a somewhat different article about Jane Fonda you might like to read.
THIS MOVING; ACROSS AMERICA HONORING A TRAITOR This is for all the kids born in the 70's that
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
The first part of this is from an F-4E
pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1978, 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 PJs, 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.
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-4Es). 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
