Sent from Please pass on to everyone you kinow.Jane Fonda was on 3 times this week talking about her new book. . .And how good she feels in her 70's. . . She still does not know what she did wrong. . . Her book just may not make the bestseller list if more people knew.Barbara Walters said: Thank you all. Many died in Vietnam for our freedoms. I did not like Jane Fonda then and I don't like her now. She can lead her present life the way she wants and perhaps SHE can forget the past, but we DO NOT have to stand by without comment and see her "honored" as a "Woman of the Century."For those who served and/or died. . .NEVER FORGIVE A TRAITOR. SHE REALLY WAS A TRAITOR!!And now President Obama wants to honor her!!!!In Memory of Lt. C. Thomsen Wieland, who spent 100 days at the Hanoi Hilton [infamous North Vietnam prison] --IF YOU NEVER FORWARDED ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE. FORWARD THIS SO THAT EVERYONE WILL KNOW!A TRAITOR IS ABOUT TO BE HONORED. KEEP THIS MOVING ACROSS AMERICA.This is for all the kids born in the 70's and after who do not remember, and didn't have to bear the burden that our fathers, mothers and older brothers and sisters had to bear.Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century."Barbara Walters writes: 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 the Vietnam War.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 onto the camp commandant's feet, which sent that officer berserk.In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying career) from the Commandant's frenzied application of a wooden baton.From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the "Hanoi Hilton". . . The first three of which his family only knew he was "missing in action." His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and 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 were alive and still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his Social Security Number 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 all the little pieces of paper...Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Colonel Carrigan was almost number four but he survived, which is the only reason we know of her actions that day.I was a civilian economic development advisor in Vietnam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and held prisoner 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 Banme Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I weighed only about 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 her. I said yes, for I wanted to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received. . . and how different it was from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by her as "humane and lenient."Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees, with my arms outstretched with a large steel weight placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane.I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda soon after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She never did answer me.These first-hand experiences do 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.RONALD D. SAMPSON, CMSgt,USAF 716 Maintenance Squadron,Chief of Maintenance DSN: 875-6431 COMM: 883-6343PLEASE HELP BY SENDING THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK. IF ENOUGH PEOPLE SEE THIS MAYBE HER STATUS WILL CHANGE
We need to get our facts correct people.
It does not serve anyone to pass along easily refuted "facts" - it just makes us look bitter and foolish.
There may be MANY MANY reasons to dislike Jane Fonda, but this is just not one to keep forwarding to people - they will stop listening at any reason if you blindly pass along these things.
I recall the Vietnam War quite clearly thank you, and what she did by going to North Vietnam was a vain and stupid thing, but making up stories about passing notes on to captors is just not true, and when you perpetuate these sort of things you will eventually lose the ears of those that need to hear the truth.
I know I am new hear - I am trying to be helpful.
When I see something being passed around in emails I ALWAYS check on them, and you know what?
Most of it is easily proven to be false stories that somebody made up altogether.
Then people stop listening altogether.
Then your message is lost altogether, no matter the merits - you lose credibility.
Mathias, There is a lot of truth in what you say about loosing credibility by repeating false rumors. But as Mr. Regan says there is also more than enough truth about what Jane Fonda, (And John Kerry ) have both said and done for them to be tried and hung for high treason. It should have been done 30 years ago. I remember the VietNam and the years after that also even though I never went to NAM myself. I was in the USAF just prior to the major part of the war. I spent two years in a hospital in New Hampshire, and I watched TV most of the time, (confined to a hospital bed), I hear and saw both of them. And as far as I'm concerned they should both be hanged as traitors. Sooner or later that will happen, one way or another. I just hope Barry Soretoro is with them.
