Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century."


Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country but specific men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam.



Witness #1



The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat.

In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison-the "Hanoi Hilton."

Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJ's, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "Peace Activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received.


He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and was dragged away.


During the subsequent beating, he fell forward upon the camp Commandant's feet, which sent that officer berserk.


In '78, the AF Col. still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying days) from the Vietnamese Col.'s frenzied application of a wooden baton.


Witness #2

From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the "Hilton"- the first three of which he was "missing in action".

His wife lived on faith that he was still alive.


His group, too, got the cleaned, fed, clothed routine in preparation for a 'peace delegation" visit.


They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they still survived.


Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his SSN on it, in the palm of his hand.



When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?"



Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper.


She took them all without missing a beat.


At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge and handed him the little pile of papers.



Three men died from the subsequent beatings.



Col. Carrigan was almost number four but he survived, which is the only reason we know about her actions that day.


Witness #3

I was a civilian economic development advisor in Vietnam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and held for over 5 years.

I spent 27 months in solitary confinement, one year in a cage in Cambodia, and one year in a "black box" in Hanoi.

My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border.


At one time, I was weighing approximately 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.)



We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals."


When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda.


I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as "humane and lenient."



Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a large amount of steel placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane till my arms dipped.


I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after I was released.


I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV.



She did not answer me.


This does not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of "100 Years of Great Women."

Lest we forget..." 100 years of great women" should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots.

There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them.


Please take the time to forward to as many people as you possibly can.



It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that we will never forget.

ALthough Jane should have been left in one of those black boxes (along with that idiot thats running for president), only one part of what you have posted is true. (the last example) according to Snopes.
Sorry but when these postings are used to show the kind of persons Hanoi Jane and her buddy Kerry are, we should always make sure they are very accurate.

Serems to me that a lot of this "internet hype" was reported by the news media in the 60's and/or 70's when it was happening. This was before Snopes
was ever heard and the news media reported what was happening instead of only reporting their own version of what was happening.

La4 no doubt she should have been drawn and quartered, only that we need to insure we don't loose our credibility by saying she did things the quoted persons won't back up.
Snopes contacted the first two men "quoted" and the said the incident was untrue. The third backed his incident to the hilt.
I have a wonderful hat that shoes brogans standing next too, and a "stream" landing on her headstone :)
I have have to fight off the good guys to keep it when I wear it to Amvets
