I have posted on a few threads that I think we should stay far away from this story. It worked, attacking Kerry's record, because he was so public with his anti-war rhetoric, he is unlikable and overbearing and he was running for the presidency, so the stakes were higher.
We have nothing to gain by attacking Murtha, imo. And that a trap might have been set wouldn't surprise me in the least.
I'd love to know what the book Stolen Valor has to say about Murtha. Their research was excellent about people who got medals who didn't deserve them.
I thought the story smelled when I first read about it
As have I. I've been saying we can't afford to go down that road.
