Instead of being resisting his jailers, John McCain instead seems to have been one of Hanoi’s leading military collaborators almost from the moment he was captured.

Furthermore, it’s doubtful he was ever tortured, but much more likely that McCain simply invented those claims as a preemptive defense against the danger of facing a court martial for collaboration upon his return.
