“An untimely exit (from Iraq) could rapidly devolve into a civil war,
which would leave America’s foreign policy in disarray as countries question not
only America’s judgment but its perseverance.”
(From Rep. John Murtha's 2004 book "From Vietnam to 9/11"...
where Murtha advocates that the U.S. should
not pull-out or Iraq prematurely or create a timetable)
"Our military has done everything that has been asked of them, the U.S. can not accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. IT IS TIME TO BRING THEM HOME." (Rep. John Murtha on the War in Iraq, Congressman John Murtha website, November 17, 2005)
"Well, I say that the fight against Americans began with Abu
Ghraib. It began with the invasion of Iraq. That's when terrorism started."
(Murtha, Nov. 17, 2005, News Hour with Jim Lehrer)
"They [the Marines/Military] knew the day after this happened that
it was not as they portrayed it. They knew that they (marines) went into the
rooms, they killed the people in the taxi. There was no firing at all. And this
comes from the highest authority in the Marine Corps, so there's no question in
(Murtha, May 2006)
"There was no firefight. There was no IED that killed these innocent people. Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood"
(Murtha, May 19, 2006)
''We can go to Okinawa. . . . We can redeploy there almost instantly.''
(Murtha, June 11, 2006, Meet The Press)
"We can't win this."
(Rep. John Murtha, Congressional Record, June 15, 2006, p. H4028)
"We are causing the problem."
Rep.John Murtha, Congressional Record, June 15, 2006, p. H4028)
"American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than
nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran."
(Murtha, June 24, 2006 South Florida Sun-Sentinel)
Concerning the Haditha Marines that Murtha mugged with a guilty verdict during an investigation. Mugger has little to say. In fact, it seems he is cowardly hiding from his false, but damning words.
John Murtha. “Mad Jack”. “Mugger”. Possibly “Mothra’s Ugly Brother”. He has gained many names, but the assignation the Congressman likes the best is “hero”. Is he a hero?
Democratic Congressman Murtha is not a war heroRead the rest and google “Murtha Marine Hero” and decide for yourself.
On the occasion of his attacks on the troops and the nation’s Iraq policy, I again took interest, as he was described as an injured war hero. John Murtha is not a war hero. I am certain if and when the truth comes out one will find that his awards were given long after he left Viet Nam. Murtha is, in my opinion, a phony and has used his veteran’s status to climb to the top of several committees where he can and does influence pork for Johnstown.
Me? I think he is an opportunist old hack having his past lies and duplicity coming full circle to bite him in the ass.
Throw him out.
