Murtha finds military progress in trip to Iraq
Warns that Iraqis must do more for their own security
U.S. Rep. John Murtha today said he saw signs of military progress during a brief trip to Iraq last week, but he warned that Iraqis need to play a larger role in providing their own security and the Bush administration still must develop an exit strategy.
"I think the 'surge' is working," the Democrat said in a videoconference from his Johnstown office, describing the president's decision to commit more than 20,000 additional combat troops this year. But the Iraqis "have got to take care of themselves."
Murtha finally admits the surge has worked. He has not discussed whether the military justice system has worked concerning the "cold-blooded murderers" of Haditha.
Without an apology and an admission that he was wrong Murtha has no credibility. Well, he never had any with me, he just dug his hole deeper.
UPDATE: Nancy "I'm so spitting mad" Pelosi has probably been throwing things as well as fits over Murtha's inability to stop his mouth from moving before he has his brain engaged. Poor Harry "Dem punched me too much" Reid keeps watching any credibility he may have had slip through his fingers and away. At least Pelosi married money.
UPDATE II: Murtha gets confused again. Unfortunately, getting confused is easy for Murtha. Did the President, Rumsfeld, Rice, Cheney, Clinton, Rockefeller, Murtha, Democrats in general or the Pentagon talk about WMDs?
Murtha even yelled at a reporter during a recent press conference, telling the reporter that the news coming out of the Pentagon regarding Iraq is not believable.
"They don't need to do the things — you're missing the point — because the Pentagon says it, you believe it?," Murtha yelled. "You believe what the Pentagon says? Huh? With all the things that they have told us, you believe what — I mean, go back and look — 'mission accomplished,' Al Qaeda connection, weapons of mass destruction, on and on and on, and you believe the Pentagon?"
Believe the Pentagon? Yes, I do, especially before I would ever believe you Murtha. You loser, but at the moment the fact that you have put the madam, Pelosi, in a bad position, has made me smile.
Poor Pelosi, her little attack dog, Mugger Murtha, has slipped off his leash and the neighbors are laughing because he has bit Nancy in the butt. Good.
