Update: News From The West, a racist and anti-Semitic blog, recently printed a transcript of the Jack Wheeler video interview.

Of the more well-known bloggers Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs seems to be the only one still running with this. She prints Jack Wheeler's response to the criticisms.

Did John McCain commit treason with North Vietnamese prostitutes?

Apparently John Kerry got off lucky. The swift-boating of John McCain has taken a really bizarre and crazy twist. WorldNet Daily has the story: How the Clintons will undo McCain . Basically, the story goes that a bright teenager known only as T, the son of the Soviet military intelligence officer who ran the "Hanoi Hilton" prison, transcribed the notes of McCain's interrogations by his captors and that this material later came into the hands of the CIA, which passed it on to the Clintons because Bill has been a CIA agent since the 60s. McCain, however, may retaliate by releasing information about Hillary's lesbian affair with Saudi intelligence operative Huma Abedin. One blogger rightly calls this The Wingnuttiest Blog Post of All Time.

The piece is written by Dr. Jack Wheeler, the "rightwing Indiana Jones." Dr Wheeler has apparently been everywhere and done everything. A radio interview with him, which I have not yet listened to, can be found here .

According to T, they reveal that McCain had made an "accommodation" with his captors, and in exchange, T's father saw that he was provided with an apartment in Hanoi and the services of two prostitutes. Upon returning to his prison cell, he would say he had been held in solitary confinement. That may be why so many of his fellow prisoners said later they saw so little of him at Hoa Loa.
In other words, the CIA has in its possession the notes and reports of John McCain's interrogators at the Hanoi Hilton, in both the original Vietnamese and translated Russian, showing collaboration with his Communist captors.
The CIA is supporting Hillary Clinton because they are a bunch of left-wingers and because Bill was a CIA agent since the 60s, according supposedly to Cord Meyer of the Agency.

(Back in the 90s years after he retired, if Cord drank a little too much Scotch, he would laugh derisively at those conspiratorialists who accused Bill Clinton of being connected with the KGB.

"They all darkly point to Bill's participation in anti-war peace conferences in Stockholm and Oslo, and his trip to Leningrad, Moscow, and Prague while he was at Oxford. ‘Who could have paid for this?', they ask. ‘It had to be the KGB!' they claim." Cord would shake his head. "What rot - we paid for it. We recruited Bill the first week he was at Oxford. Bill's been an asset of The Three Bad Words ever since." Cord passed on in 2001.)
There is no evidence presented for any of this, of course, and so the crazier wingnuts are all over it, including batshit crazy Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs. (Since her earlier post, however, she has linked to a FrontPageMag refutation of the charges.)
