Murtha says U.S. poses top threat to world peace
MIAMI — American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon.Murtha was the guest speaker at a town hall meeting organized by Rep. Kendrick B. Meek, D-Miami, at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus....Murtha also has publicly said that the shooting of 24 Iraqis in November at Haditha, a city in the Anbar province of western Iraq that has been plagued by insurgents, was wrongfully covered up.
The killings, which sparked an investigation into the deadly encounter and another into whether they were the subject of a cover-up, could undermine U.S. efforts in Iraq more than the prison abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib in 2004, Murtha said."(The United States) became the target when Abu Ghraib came along," Murtha said.

Sweetness and Light chimes in: Murtha is insane in his hatred for the United States." [here]

Ah, Johnny, we hardly knew ya -- we who now regret ever having voted for you.
It's time for you to go.
It appears that Murtha claims to have been misquoted in the news report. He covered himself by saying that he was actually citing the results of a Pew poll rather than stating his personal views. It's a standard journalistic/political dodge -- get the idea out there but if challenged attribute it to someone else, that way you avoid personal responsibility.
