A cover story in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine depicts John McCain as a coward, cheat, adulterer and pampered admiral’s son who owes his reputation in part to the liberal media.
The article, “Make-Believe Maverick,” retells much of McCain’s familiar story and doesn’t dispute any of the well-known facts of his capture and subsequent torture during the Vietnam War.
But it places those facts in a less-forgiving light and quotes some of McCain’s fellow soldiers and former POWs as raising questions about his heroism, and his ability to lead.
The author, Tim Dickinson, quotes John Dramesi, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who was also imprisoned in Vietnam, as saying that McCain is undeserving of his reputation.
“McCain says his life changed while he was in Vietnam, and he is now a different man," Dramesi is quoted as saying. "But he's still the undisciplined, spoiled brat that he was when he went in." etc........
