John McCain: “I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else’s; I loved it for its decency, for its faith in the wisdom, justice, and goodness of its people. I loved it because it was not just a place but an idea, a cause worth fighting for. I was never the same again. I wasn’t my own man any more. I was my country’s.”

John McCain had his faults, but one thing he did we should all be proud of: he spearheaded reconciliation with Vietnam.  He has been dead now for seven months.  He who must not be named has latched on to a conspiracy theory about him which is both false and absurd.   The fact is that he was given a copy of the notorious Steele dossier AFTER the 2016 election.  He did not know that the FBI already had a copy, and he was so alarmed by the allegations in it that he wasted no time in making sure they had one.  But by then it was too late– contrary to *his conspiracy theory.  If only this Steele dossier had been publicized BEFORE the election.

The unfortunate fact is that, even though the Democratic National Committee was paying for Steele’s work, its results were never communicated to the people in the campaign who could have publicized it, say in campaign commercials on TV… a fatal mistake, and a classic example of how organizations sometimes malfunction.
