WND is publishing an updated edition of "When Hell was in Session," Jeremiah Denton's memoir of life as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, which includes "a major new section written by Denton for today's generation." Promoting the book in a Nov. 10 article, WND allows Denton to rant during an interview:
President Obama, Denton contended, is usurping the rights of God, "as did Hitler and Stalin and the emperors of Rome."
"They all had gods – but when they didn't have good enough gods to constitute a culture, they went to hell," Denton told WND. "And we are too, if we continue to believe that man, all of us individually, or our government, can determine what the rights are and set up everything else to match that. We're done."
Denton is, unsurprisingly, quite right-wing, having once served as a consultant to Pat Robertson at his Christian Broadcasting Network. He also takes credit for "proposing a comprehensive strategy for confronting communism in Latin America that [Ronald Reagan] accepted and successfully implemented."
