  •  Hero Status (3+ / 0-)

    McCain has made a lot of hay out of his hero status, which I don't question.  However, such status is based entirely on his being a prisoner of war and his being subjected to torture.  By that measure, can't one argue that the terrorists who have suffered torture at our hands are similarly heroic?

    Please skip the silly, morally vacuous arguments that (i) they weren't tortured; they were the subject of "enhanced interrogation techniques" and (ii) they aren't prisoners of war, but are instead "enemy combatants."
