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 during Vietnam.
>The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry
>Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1968, 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 PJ's, 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.
>During 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,
>Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). 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.
>They, 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
>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
>to the officer in charge and handed him the little pile of papers. Three
>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 South Vietnam in 1968, and held for
>over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement, one year in a
>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
>leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle
>the Cambodian border.
>At 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.
>This does 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.
