The great American Senator/Admiral Jeremiah Denton recently died.
He is known among other things for his bravery in the Vietnam War as a Prisoner of War, most famously when he blinked in Morse code the word “torture” while responding to an interviewer’s questions in a staged propaganda television broadcast. In fact, his very words were awesomely brave. [YouTube link]
What was the history of who figured that out, and when? When was that made public, at least that the US recognized it, independent of any private citizens–who may saw it immediately? Did any? Was it broadcast by the US networks? Did the Communists become aware of it and subject Denton to further abuse as a direct response?
