    Excellent and timely link to a contrast in character. As usual, the comments below the article also add value for the time spent.

    I read a book about him years ago.

    He was an honorable man that served his country. He also he a fairly liberal voting record as a senator.

    I remember the propaganda video shown during the evening news on our old B&W TV, and him blinking his eyes in morse code. He was a patriot.

    He blinked the word "TORTURE".

    He was also the first one to step off the plane, during 'Operation Homecoming'.
