    As some other commentators have pointed out, McCain gave a detailed (12K word) account in 1973 of his time as a POW. The cross incident should have figured in that if it happened. It wasn't mentioned.

    That, rather than the similarity to the Solzhynitsn story, is what makes his current use of it suspicious.
