CNN Exclusive: McCain camp releases interrogation video

Click here to view exclusive video provided to CNN of a new campaign video where John McCain is interrogated as a P.O.W.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The McCain campaign — in a new video unveiled exclusively to CNN on Wednesday — is aiming to showcase the Arizona Republican's service in the Vietnam War, including his time spent in a North Vietnamese prison.

Called "Courageous Leadership," the twelve-minute video begins with footage of McCain being interrogated by enemy soldiers.

The video then details McCain's experience as a prisoner of war, and includes interviews with the senator himself, as well as several others who served with him.

The campaign says it plans to use the video to introduce the White House hopeful at house parties and speaking events. The campaign is also likely to use the video as the basis for a number of television commercials.
