McCain Hits Back at Spicer: A Failed Mission Doesn’t Diminish Bravery and Courage
MCCAIN: "Many years ago when I was in prison in North Vietnam there was an attempt to rescue the POW's. Unfortunately, the prison had been evacuated but the brave men who took — on that mission and risked their lives in an effort to it rescue us, prisoners of war, were genuine American heroes. Because the mission failed did not in any way diminish their bravery and courage and willingness to sacrifice for their fellow Americans who were being held captive. Mr. Spicer should know that story."
