It's a common mistake that everyone does now and again since everyone uses the word prisoners just about everyday.
No big deal...really...

I find it both hilarious and sad that ATS sees this as anything more than a fumbling of words. Why didn't he correct it? Because he didn't realize it, or because when he did realize it it was a word too late in the stream of consciousness and it would just throw off many audience members to go back mid speech and say "Oh and by the way when I said prisoners I meant Americans, sorry".

His name is John McCain. I thought this type of petty childishness was to be forbidden on ATS. Why are the mods tolerating this?

He is under pressure and his mind simply geared back to his POW days.
PTSD will call up the reponse from the shock of the event when the sufferer is under pressure.
My hat off to McCain.
