Iraq Vet Doubts 'New Veteran' Loyalty to McCain

The media can no longer ignore McCain's false claims of supporting veterans simply because he's a veteran and says so.

In this stratagem by "would-be Commander-in Chief" McCain, a swath of "300 Spartans" has emerged to try to persuade swing voters that POW McCain really is a "caring veteran."

The opening of the letter almost takes one to the Battle of Thermopylae -- still so fresh in the minds of our popular culture after the blockbuster film "300" was released a year ago.

'We have had the honor and privilege of serving as career officers in the United States Armed Forces, and of serving shoulder-to-shoulder with so many of the fine young men and women who are the backbone of America's Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard."
