Murtha is the face of today's Democratic Party on the war. This is bad for the country, and likely to prove unwise politically.
To say the least. Read it here.
He links to a WaPo piece slamming my former Congresscritter. It reads in part:
Mr. Murtha's cynicism is matched by an alarming ignorance about conditions in Iraq. He continues to insist that Iraq "would be more stable with us out of there," in spite of the consensus of U.S. intelligence agencies that early withdrawal would produce "massive civilian casualties." He says he wants to force the administration to "bulldoze" the Abu Ghraib prison, even though it was emptied of prisoners and turned over to the Iraqi government last year. He wants to "get our troops out of the Green Zone" because "they are living in Saddam Hussein's palace"; could he be unaware that the zone's primary occupants are the Iraqi government and the U.S. Embassy?Read the whole thing here.
If anyone in that misbegotten mess that Congress has become deserves the slams, it's Jack Murtha. Unfortunately the people of his district haven't seen fit to send him home yet. He's an embarrassment to his district, his Party, and the entire Congress. Somebody please shut him up! I'm talkin' to you, Nancy.
