From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain[1] is a 527 Political Action Committee formed in 1997.[2] The group makes controversial allegations against Senator John McCain concerning his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. The group was founded by Vietnam veterans Jerry Kiley and Ted Sampley.[2]

The group has made a video in which Bob Smith, former Republican Senator from New Hampshire, Bob Dornan, former Republican Representative from California, former Congressional staffers and others make various allegations against McCain.[3] The group has also disseminated taped excerpts[4] of McCain's questioning of Dolores Alfond of the National Alliance of Families before the United States Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs.

In 1974, McCain wrote his thesis, entitled The Code of Conduct and the Vietnam Prisoners of War [5]while studying at the National War College, in which he discussed the Code of Conduct and issues relating to the conduct of American prisoners of war in Vietnam. [6]
