REMINDER: “HANOI JANE” Fonda, The Traitor Who Called Returning Pow’s Hypocrites and Liars EXPOSED


Born Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda, Jane Fonda earned her reputation as “Hanoi Jane” after pictures taken in Hanoi showed her “aiding and abetting” the enemy — North Vietnam:


Fonda posed straddling a gun, while American POWs were being subjected to all manner of torture at the “Hanoi Hilton.”  Col. Roger Ingvalson, one of the POWs had his aircraft shot down by n NVA-AAG similar to the gun Hanoi Jane was captured straddling on.


Fonda wasn’t shy to call returning POWs “hypocrites and liars,” saying:

“These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed. … Pilots were saying it was the policy of the Vietnamese and that it was systematic. I believe that’s a lie.”



Back in 1989, General Vo Nguyen Giap, supreme leader of the North Vietnamese Army, told CBS in an interview:

“We paid a high price [during the Tet offensive] but so did you [Americans] … not only in lives and materiel. Do not forget the war was brought into the living rooms of the American people…. The most important result of the Tet offensive was it made you de-escalate the bombing, and it brought you to the negotiation table. It was, therefore, a victory…. The war was fought on many fronts. At that time the most important one was American public opinion.”


On the subject of “Hanoi” Jane Fonda and John Kerry, Bui Tin who was serving at the time as an NVA colonel assigned to the general staff at the time Saigon fell, said this:

 “[They were] essential to our strategy. Support of the war from our rear was completely secure while the American rear was vulnerable. Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement. Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda, and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and ministers gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses. Those people represented the conscience of America. The conscience of America was part of its war-making capability, and we were turning that power in our favor. America lost because of its democracy; through dissent and protest it lost the ability to mobilize a will to win.”



Quite a lot of years later, in 2005, when Fonda was asked if she regretted her trip to North Vietnam in 1972, she said she had no regrets what so ever:

“There are hundreds of American delegations that had met with the POWs. Both sides were using the POWs for propaganda… It’s not something that I will apologize for.”
