potentially explosive news: McCain may have lied about his POW experience

If this is true, it could seriously undermine the McCain camp. The exposion of vitriol by the right (read the readers' comments in the linked article) in response to this allegation leads me to suspect it just might be true.

Why is this important? Because, in the words of Paul Waldman:
Many journalists decided long ago that McCain is just different from other politicians. They declare McCain innocent of all the sins they associate with other members of his profession, no matter how often he commits them. They testify that McCain is too modest to mention his POW experience in Vietnam, but McCain now brings it up all the time.

We will most certainly continue to follow this.
