    I dont think she will ever be, It was a time of WAR and she should not have been there in the first place!

    That was not as bad as when she took the names of the POWs that she spoke to and turn around and gave them to the North Vietnam commander. They gave her their names to her so she could give them to our US Gov.

    When Americans like Jane Fonda and Dennis Rodman who both are Blessed with Greats Talents does something like what they both did it just goes to show how "Ungreatful" they both are to their country. I ask that we all "PRAY" for the both of them,because someone said "Judge Ye that Ye not be Judged" Amen!!!!!!! I am a Veteran of Korea and Vietnam and i "Fondly remember Repeating these words; I do solomey swear to uphold and defend the constitution of the,USA. against "All" Enemies forgien or domestic,So Help Me God.So to "ALL" Veterans hold your heads up High!!!!

    Fonda should have had her citizenship revoked and shipped back to the Nam. Instead, she came back here, made a fitness video and spent the rest of her miserable existence wallowing in self-pity. Traitors are scum and so is Jane.

    She still doesn't get it after all these years and puts her blame on the picture of her on a North Vietnam antiaircraft gun. She doesn't know the meaning of the word traitor. She betrayed every man living and dead that fought in the service of the country. Wars are only a mistake if you loose them and She drove a knife in the backs of the young men who were ordered into combat. The communist would give her a medal for her service. I will never forgive her and she knows very well that she betrayed her country but blames it on a photograph.

    i agree what she did wasn't a smart decision, but if you read jane's 2005 autobiography part of it states, "It happened on my last day in Hanoi. I was exhausted and an emotional wreck after the 2-week visit." Being exhausted and an emotional wreck is hard for people. How could this have really been her fault? Let me ask all you haters this,If you were in vietnam during the war, could you really cope with all the things you would witness and not do what jane fonda did? Try and imagine yourselves in her shoes.

    I truly believe after all this time anyone who cannot forgive her, is a bitter human being for life. I served in 'nam and didn't appreciate what she did or said at the time but to hold a grudge this long just does not make sense. At least when I go to my maker, I'll no longer have that hate weighing on my heart.

    I suspect the one mistake was getting caught doing the deed. Not the deed itself. She is still the same big lib now as then. Just listen to some of her comments, recent or years ago.

    I was with the 101st and spent 18 months and 29 days in county. We faced daily tradgedies for more tha 2 weeks at a time. She should not have been there in the first place. Until all of the people that are NOT MILITARY PERSONEL are kept out of the war zobes, you are going to have this sort of thing happen. How can we ever expect to win a war when the armchair generals are sitting back here telling us what we need to be doing. Put the generals back in charge and have the 6 o'clock new tell the people at home what we accomplished today. Live coverage of military operations do nothing but cost lives of our military brothers and sisters. We have seen that with this traitor and the other traitor Geraldo Rivera. When are we going to ever learn?

    Why didn't she choose to join with the American patriots like Bob Hope, John Wayne, Martha Ray, and the many other's that choose to support American troops in Vietnam? Had she been touring with these great guys she would not have made that unforgivable mistake, as she calls it. I think she knew exactly what she was doing. Sorry Jane, no forgiveness here.

    She is an actress. I seem to remember that she did not apologize for her actions. This is Hollywood crap. She was not duped by the NVA, she was infatuated with them.

    she is still a traitor and I say strip her citizenship. take away all her rights. make her leave the usa and live in another country. my name is danny and I approve this message.

    It was very good to hear Jane Fonda's explanation. It is July 25, 2013 and it was time I heard her version. I hope to pass this on to others who would benefit and heal from this. God bless our country and all of our soldiers.

    She is one heck of an actress isn't she? I can not believe that she actually thinks that it was her holding a stick in a manner that it appeared as though she was shooting a gun is what upset us! Listen to this Traitor Jane, You are just another deceiving, lying liberal who could not be, and still can not be trusted. Your presence and conduct spoke for itself and nothing you now say or can do can undo your blatantly treasonous actions, PERIOD! The eccentric and racist liberal, Oprah Winfrey,is not admired by most of us either and all your monies and talents combined will never be able to justify your continued existence to us.

    Not good enough. Being a traitor cannot be apologized away and explained away after all these years. You stuck the bayonet in the back of every last one of us that served in Vietnam and twisted it.. We followed orders, served out country and you told us and showed us how you felt. Go to your grave with the ill will of millions of us that went to Vietnam to do our duty and serve our country. We were fighting for the freedom of the South Vietnamese people. We just plain GIs didn't start the war or want the war, but we went, because our country ask us to. You went there to enhance your movie star image and profit personally. A skunk can't change their stripes. I don't think there is another person in the United States that is more reviled than you. Live with it. We have all these years.

    Well, nobody said Hanoi Jane couldn't act. The one I want to see apologize is John Traitor Kerry. Every war movie from Apocalypse Now to Platoon was inspired by John Traitor Kerry's self serving lies on TV to the whole world in 1971 about what ruthless savages we were. The "crazed Vietnam vet" on so many TV shows and in movies are a direct figment of this turncoats cowardly imagination. I would much prefer to see him tried and convicted for treason. Making this big phony blowhard Secretary Of State was the final spit in the face for Nam vets.

    I have never been able to "Hate" a woman, lots of men who are despicable human beings but never a female. Honoi Jane is an exception. Millions of Marines and Soldiers want to just want to throw-up especially when Fonda is given accolades by hollywood or the progressive press. I know very well I am required to "forgive" by my faith, but just can't swing it!!!. Semper Fi!!!

    We fought for freedom of speech in America. Disagree freely in America using freedom of speech we veterans fought for all to use. But don't go over seas bad mouthing American troops who sacrificed so much by aiding the enemy's cause. You made your bed now sleep in it . Don't make excuses and expect that all is forgiven.

    I think Jane Fonda is like a lot of the Hollywood actor's they like the freedom the military has given us and that is it. They don't get that these men, woman an there families sacrifice so much for them. I would like to send the her and a bunch more to some hell hole to live at the rest of there miserable life's. She only wants some piece of mind before she dies. Hell No.

    She made more then one unforgivable mistake, she didn't like the war thats fine but she had no reason to go to Vietnam and conspire with the enemy. And there she was lauding all the equipment and guns and laughing up a storm. What a hypocrite she is, this is just some kind of PR stunt it means nothing

    that bit with Fonda I don't believe. A person I know was given a order from the military to kill that traitor while she was in hanoi It went down to 30 seconds and they aborted the order and ordered him to shoot the general next to her.So many military men still have her in their sights. I hear about t all the time when I go to the VA hospital around the country. she will answer for that which she did to our guys..

    This speech does not move me at all. JF is a traitor to this country and should face charges. She has no idea the harm she did! I can't and will never forget what she did. She was the hero of the anti-war citizens. She says she is sorry! She actually adds fuel to the PTSD that I was diagnosed with. So many men killed and she still remains free. Why hasn't she faced charges of being a traitor to this country! If that had been an AWOL military person on that gun, he would have been tried for treason. I am 68 years old now. My wife tells me that I need to forgive JF. Tells me not to hate. I do not hate JF, but I sure as hell don't like her. She needs to be in prison.

    What she did in Viet Nam had a domino effect. She was a public figure. Her actions were believed as true. A picture is worth a thousand words and the hippies and that jeneration age believe it. WE paid for it there and when we got home. That is why we came home in the dark.

    Some one said that Jane was at her wits end after a week of almost non stop activities. And she should not be judged because of her lack of choice to act as she did. I am sorry but I worked nonstop for over 12 hrs. prepping RF aircraft that had no guns and only took pictures. If I had failed to do everything right a pilot would have lost his life. OH wait a minute I did this for a year. There were hundreds of us that did that. Then there were the guys under direct fire for more than 12 hrs. at a time and they still had the courage and forethought to respond to helping their fellow soldiers. Her lack of sound judgement continued after she got back to the states and went on many tour and activities degrading our soldiers. No I will not forgive her because she found out that her choices have consequences. She just doesn't like the consequences. To bad she should have thought about that AT THE TIME. We did and we chose to come home and not cause so much of a fuss. But the when our children went to WAR we welcomed them home. WHERE was she then? That may have been a second chance but again she was not there.

    Yes, Jane Fonda, did make A VERY REGRETTABLE MISTAKE; She Went to North Vietnam. ... .

Jane Fonda, You Are A Traitor . ... ! You, Tim Hayden, Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dhorn, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton, are all Traitors. ... .

    Watch the entire Ken Burns documentary on Vietnam and see if your lists of traitors grows to include a couple of Presidents of the US. Jane Fonda had little influence on the number of deaths in that conflict. Johnson and Nixon on the other hand acted disgracefully. I served in Vietnam as an 11B. I thought at the time that what I was doing meant something. I was wrong. I also thought at least we as a Nation learned a lesson from Vietnam to never send young men to war over a bunch of lies. I was wrong again, and got to serve in two more endless drains of our young soldiers. Easy to focus on Jane Fonda and miss the real message going on right in front of our noses.

    Hanoi Jane; as described by all of us that served in the Vietnam Theater is; UNFORGIVABLE . ... . When she talks of her "Bad Decision" it was hers, and hers alone. ... . She did what she did, not for Love of Country, not for Political Reasons, or she'd have run for office. ... . No, Hanoi Jane, made a Conscious Decision to Choose the Enemy over our Country. ... . Siding with the Enemy, is Treason and Nothing Less. ... . Now, here we are, over 50 years hence and this Traitor's still walking Free. ... . If she had done something like this, during WW II, she's have been Exiled to some foreign land, as was Charlie Chaplin, an avowed Communist, she should do the same. ... . I have nothing for Hanoi Jane Fonda, she was and is a Traitor, she sided with the Enemy. ... . She Cavorted with the Enemy and for that, her unforgivable acts, should never be Forgotten or Forgiven . ... . In my Eyes and Mind, Hanoi Jane Fonda, will Die a Traitor to her Country and her People. ... . As despicable, as HJF, felt the USA was and is, she still wishes to remain here, hmmm. ... . Odd. ... ?

    Jane Fonda made a mistake? Cannot be serious. It's like saying that Hitler did not mean to "hurt" the Jews. There are several other videos were she claims that the American POW's were treated very well that none were ever tortured. There was a group called FTA (some of the members were Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, and others). My all time favorite is still John Kerry the war hero.

    She should have been hung 45 years ago. Her actions are reprehensible and it upsets me to no end that she is allowed to live in this country, with all it's benefits after what she did. I will dance when she dies.

    She is a totally disgrace to America. I was in Viet Nam during those days in Special Forces eating worms for a diet trying to free our captured soldiers. This is an evil women that needs to be in prison. Her excuses is not acceptable. She did this on her on own and I curse her for the rest of my life.
