    As a tribute to such a great man Trump should open up all his files so the world can know the sacrifices he made.

    Daily Caller fact-checks 'conspiracy theory' about McCain & USS Forrestal

    EDIT: Mods, I meant to post this in the main McCain thread, so if you don't mind, I'm going to repost it there.

    Says it's false. I noticed about a month ago, that the daily caller stop allowing comments. Struck me as odd, since, until now, I had only seen (obviously) left-leaning sites doing this. While I know Tucker Carlson was a co-founder, it appears he's no longer involved with it since he started his show. (DC's current staff:

    Something else - On Monday (and I checked this personally) if you looked up 'USS Forrestal' on wikipedia, under '1967 fire', the only mention of McCain was, "On the flight deck that day was Lieutenant Commander John McCain." On Tuesday, someone had added that "conspiracy theories" about McCain having caused the fire were false. Weirdly, I checked wiki again, while writing this post and the conspiracy theory part has been removed.

    The fact that the incident is not being used as another way to play up McCain's heroism - i.e. "also brave survivor of USS Forrestal catastrophe" - just makes me more inclined to believe he played some role and they want to avoid mentioning it. And as they are admitting that he took off in a helicopter with reporter R.W. Apple Jr., why wasn't he punished for going AWOL, or deserting?

    Political cartoonist Ben Garrison published a post that alleges that the late Sen. John McCain started a fire aboard the USS Forrestal in 1967 that killed 134 people. It said that McCain “wet-started” his plane, over-fueling the jet engine in order to create a dramatic plume of fire on ignition, and that the flame set off a bomb, which started the fire...........

    ...“McCain actually did an illegal ‘wet start’ which caused flames to shoot out the back of his jet and start a fire that caused the A/C behind him to catch fire and the resulting conflagration started bombs blowing up,” one user tweeted Tuesday...........

    ...“Dont forget McCain thought it would be Cool to Wet Start his plane on deck with bombs loaded which in turn killed several of his fellow soldiers,” another user tweeted Sunday.

    Verdict: False

    The official Navy report about the Forrestal incident found that a misfired rocket hit another plane and started the fire.

    Ben Garrison's Ten Reasons Not to Mourn John McCain
    ...told the reporter he needed some “R and R.” So he spent several days in Saigon sipping on scotch and sodas. He missed the memorial for his dead shipmates...
    Really? So, he wasn't "invited" to the ceremony for the dead?
