Jane Fonda Still Doesn't Get it

Image: Jane Fonda: I Will Go to My Grave with 'Unforgivable Mistake'

So now Jane Fonda tells Oprah Winfrey that she made  one unforgivable mistake when she allowed herself to be photographed on that North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun in Hanoi in 1972.

“I made one unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this,” Jane Fonda says on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

"I don't know if I was set up or not,”

This isn't new. She wrote this a few years ago in one of her autobiographies when she was describing her trip to Hanoi and praising her travel companion, "fellow patriot" Ramsey Clark, in the same passage. 

Fonda doesn't get it. She never has.

She made her unforgivable mistake when she went to North Vietnam in the first place. Who set her up for that?

“There were no planes, the gun was not operable. It didn’t matter. This is an image that belied everything that I was,” Fonda said.

Really? In November 1970, there was this:

Maybe Ms Fonda would like to explain to Oprah how she acted that day at Cleveland Airport in her confrontation with US Customs officers.

That image of her on the anti-aircraft gun did not belie anything.  In my mind, it fully illustrated everything she was.

Back when all this was going on I wondered why Miss Fonda was not thrown in jail. I had just completed my one year tour in Vietnam (Oct 1970-Oct 1971) and when Fonda did what she did I was outraged and not one politician or law enforcement official did the right thing...I think Pres. Lincoln deported an opposition person to the South when faced with similar if I were in charge, I would have deported Jane Fonda to North Vietnam and destroyed her American passport among other things...

It was an act of treason. The politicos didn't have the balls to prosecute her because of Hollywood in my view.

Set up??? Does she want us to believe she was taken to North Vietnam against her will? She should be rotting away in Leavenworth prison!
