John McCain: POW, war criminal

John McCain is trying to revive his campaign by running an ad playing up his status as a former prisoner of war in Vietnam. So naturally I'm obligated to remind my readers that that status was achieved at the price of being a war criminal - a pilot obeying illegal orders to bomb a lightbulb factory, and not only someone who obeyed illegal orders, but who has subsequently given his endorsement to such attacks on civilian targets.

As I wrote back in 2005: "John McCain - war criminal then, war criminal now, war criminal forever."
