mccain's plane was next to the one hit by the missile

FactCheck.org:
"A special note is in order here. We have seen some baseless claims that McCain was somehow responsible for the Forrestal disaster. One incorrect but widely quoted theory has him triggering the Zuni missile with the exhaust of his own plane by "wet-starting" deliberately dumping fuel into the afterburner before starting in order to shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft. This is a preposterous notion. "

Yeah this is one of the more ridiculous anti-McCain ventures. McCain is actually visible trying to save another pilot before the guy explodes, then he jumps off the side of the boat, so while he's a shitty pilot that used his daddy's connections to jump ahead of everybody he's definitely not an arsonist and definitely is a war hero.

Speaking of war heroes, lets not forget that when someone shot John Kerry's boat with a rocket, Kerry grabbed an M-16, jumped out, chased him down, shot his ass, and took his rocket launcher from him. He still got Swiftboated.

It's terrible what they did to John Kerry, and it should never be repeated again.

I love watching those clusterfuck disaster autopsy shows.

I think for this one they had: Lazy ammunition loaders not keeping safety features on properly to save time, Dangerously old WW2 bombs because the US Navy was running out of bombs to use on Charlie, The F-4's instrument start-up switch causing power surges to go to everything connected to it(like a Zuni rocket pod with a loose safety), the Fire Control chief getting blown up because he wasn't informed about the old WW2 bombs being there, The crew not being trained in proper fuel fire fighting techniques and making things worse.
