Presidential Candidate John McCain's captor, who ran the notorious Hanoi Hilton prison in North Vietnam, has broken his silence in a new story published by the BBC.

Tran Trong Duyet, whom BBC attributes as a retiree and ballroom dancing enthusiast, says the aging Republican is 'lying' about his time in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" during the Vietnam War.

"I don't know how he'd react if he met me again," said Duyet. "But I can confirm to you that we never tortured him. We never tortured any prisoners."

The BBC article goes on to state that Mr. Duyet's version of the events is 'propaganda-perfect,' and should be treated with suspicion as the country's Communist leadership still exercises strict control over media.

"He did not tell the truth," says Duyet. "But I can somehow sympathize with him. He lies to American voters in order to get their support for his presidential election."

In spite of an apparent disbelief in McCain's war stories, Duyet still claims he would vote for the Republican if he were a US citizen.

"We used to argue about the war - about whether it was right or wrong," he claims. "He is a very frank man - very conservative, and very loyal to his country and the American ideal. ... I wish him success in the presidential election."
