She's still 'Hanoi Jane'

Hanoi Jane Fonda has a books to sell. So she is trying to make believe she has apologized for her treansonous behavior during the Vietnam War. The left wing MSM has gushed over her supposed apology. The only problem is, she has not apologized in any sense of the word. Robert Caldwell explains in his article.

"The most famous – make that infamous – image of Jane Fonda from her years protesting the Vietnam War was a photograph taken during her wartime visit to North Vietnam in 1972. In the photo, Fonda is sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun clasping her hands, singing, a rapturous smile on her face, a North Vietnamese helmet on her head, surrounded by grinning North Vietnamese soldiers.

Fonda, out promoting her autobiography these days, now says she regrets that particular "betrayal," and that is her word. In an interview with Leslie Stahl on CBS's "60 Minutes," Fonda said: "I will go to my grave regretting that ... It was the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine."

She expressed similar regrets in an interview in 1988 and again in 2000, when she called posing on the enemy's anti-aircraft gun "thoughtless."

Careful readers will note that "thoughtless" and "lapse of judgment" and even "betrayal" are not apologies. In truth, Jane Fonda has never apologized for eagerly lending herself and her celebrity to the wartime propaganda of an enemy state, a Stalinist dictatorship no less, that killed 58,000 Americans.

And she's not apologizing today."
She has not apolgized and I doubt she ever will. If she were on fire, I would not even piss on her to put the fire out. - Sailor
