John Murtha may look like everybody’s kindly uncle, but he’s proven again that he’s a despicable man:
Congressman John Murtha has now gone so far as to accuse American Marines of cold-blooded murder before an investigation has been completed, and roughly doubled the number of dead without any support for his charges, with the sole apparent goal of inflaming outrage at the expense of our military’s safety.
It would seem appropriate that the United States House of Representatives should at the very least censure Congressman Murtha, who has gone so far out of his way to initiate such inflammatory and potentially dangerous rhetoric. He has dishonored his seat, the military criminal justice system, the Marine Corps and the United States of America.
Agreed. Not only does Murtha very likely have no idea what he’s talking about, he’s destroying the reputations of these men and given Iraqi terrorists an excuse to go on another killing rampage. And now, thanks to him, no matter how the facts actually decide the case, some people will always insist that there was a coverup. I suppose an imaginary Vietnam must have an imaginary Mai Lai. And, hey, they’re all shellshocked babykillers anyway, right?
