Reality based since 1949, with an extremely brief time out in 1967.
In his book about being a POW he gave out too much detail regarding coded communications. While it can be argued it was alright because he had the manuscript vetted, and it was the intelligence folks who screwed up by not throwing a red flag. Training had to be updated, and there was a potential period of danger for POWs until the training was promulgated. I've had mixed feelings about this. Even though I haven't read his book (If anyone has, what are your thoughts?), I believe it was an important story. Where is the line between security and non-disclosure agreements, and the public's right to information?I've given him the benefit of the doubt until now, but his recent kissing up to w the war criminal has disappointed me deeply. He should have no respect for a man championing the very abuses he suffered at the hands of the Viet Cong.
