Hoa Loa Prison (known as Hanoi Hilton) was a French prison that was used by the North Vietnamese government to hold American prisoners during the Vietnam War. Reports from prisoners say Vietnamese jailers used torture, starvation, and murder to subdue them. Notable figures that spent time there: US Senator John McCain, US VP candidate James Stockdale and decorated USAF pilot Bud Day. Today, this prison serves as a hotel under the name Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel.

What Donald Trump was up to while John McCain was a prisoner of war

Michael Miller and Fred Barbash present a side-by-side comparison of the two men’s lives in the 1960s, when Mr. McCain served honorably in Vietnam through trial and torment, while Mr. Trump … well, you’ll want to read that for yourself, presented in his own words. The comparison can get a little ham-fisted and repetitive, but that can happen when your subject has supplied as much material as the fun-loving Mr. Trump. — John Schwartz, Science Reporter
