Doctor Dean will be in hot water again if major media picks up on the following:
In August  the Quad City Times submitted a list of 20 questions to all the Democrat presidential candidates, one of which asked them to complete the following sentence: "My closest living relative in the armed services is...?"Oops.
Dean responded by saying "my brother is a POW/MIA in Laos, but is almost certainly dead."
The U.S. Department of Defense as Missing in Action (sic) meaning that [Charlie Dean] was among those officially sought by our government. He wasn't the only civilian with such a classification.
But he was a civilian, not a member of the armed services.
So Dr. Dean's brother, whom, it is hoped, is resting is peace, went to Southeast Asia to protest an American policy that sought to hinder the spread of a sociopolitical ideology whose key tenet was to imprison and kill people who voiced differing political views.
But the people he sought to help found him.
Then, presumably, imprisoned him.
Then, again presumably, killed him.
Then his brother then lied about it.
