U.S. Abandoned Its POWs in Vietnam

U.S. government and press accused of keeping the fate of abandoned American POWs in Vietnam from the public

Last week America suffered the loss of Sydney Schanberg, widely regarded as one of the greatest journalists of his generation. Yet as I’d previously noted, when I read his long and glowing obituary in the New York Times, I was shocked to see that it included not a single word concerning the greatest story of his career, which had been the primary focus of the last quarter century of his research and writing.

The cynical abandonment of hundreds of American POWs at the end of the Vietnam War must surely rank as one of the most monumental scandals of modern times, and the determined effort of the mainstream media to maintain this enormous governmental cover-up for over four decades raises serious doubts about whether we can believe what our newspapers report about anything else.

A couple of mainstream academics, one liberal and one conservative, whose names would be recognized as those of prominent public intellectuals, dropped me notes strongly applauding my effort to reopen the POW controversy and help get the truth out at last.

That’s not a conspiracy theory from critics of Israel or Jew-hating neo-Nazis. Instead, that was the thesis of a candid article in the August 1 edition of The Hollywood Reporter (THR), influential trade journal of the entertainment industry.

In fact, the article was bluntly titled: “Rule 1: Talk About Anything Political in Hollywood . . . Except Gaza.”

Melania Trump Echoes Michelle Obama

"Plagiarism" has been used to describe Melania Trump's speech at the RNC, but out of 17 minutes only a few similarities have been discovered. Still, it does sound like some speech writer (or Melania) listened to Michelle Obama's DNC speech from eight years ago for inspiration and subsequently got carried away. Here are the two saying nearly the same thing, side by side.


It seems that no one would have noticed, except for a near-unemployed journalist with a long memory sitting in an LA Starbucks listening to the speech.

Bernie Sanders' Disillusioned Supporters Learn He Signed on to Play the Game

Jon Rappoport's Blog

by Jon Rappoport

July 13, 2016
