An article in Rolling Stone looks at McCain's military record in some detail. Everyone knows he was a P.O.W., but there is more to it than that. He finished 894th in a class of 899 at the Naval Academy and crashed three jet fighters during his career as a pilot, only to be bailed out by his father, who was an admiral at the time. He may also have been involved in the 1967 fire on the aircraft carrier Forrestal which destroyed the ship and caused the deaths of 133 sailors. CQ Politics has the story but the traditional media won't touch it with a barge poll. Worth reading to form your own opinion.
