I have seen that mentioned previously, including a thread on TFL.

Thing is, I have never seen the movie, or read the book, and have no idea what the political insinuation is.

Could someone please enlighten me?

The premis is/was that American POW during the Korean Conflict were taken to China and barinwashed and returned. Later, when they were shown the queen of spades (I think) they would act on the brainwashed orders. One of the POWs was running for President.

Great Film! A must for all Cold War buffs.
Commies program American POW's. Could it happen? Why yes,

answers to no one! Only Government handlers from birth on. You
could have a fierce force of warriors that have been programmed
since day one to do whatever. If they are killed, who cares, as
they belong to the Gov...
