Sorry to disagree with you.
It appears that Murtha would not be a member of Congress if it were not for his military record.
This guy decided to speak out on this war (which I believe is just)and he should be subject to as much scrutiny as anyone else in a debate.
His comments were subversive, and helpful to our enemies.
I think that a lot of people do not realize the implications of calling this war illegal and/or immoral. That view implies that our Troops are involved in something that is contrary to their training concerning the Geneva Convention and other treaties.
Murtha's actual military record would help with a real determination of his credibility.

Murtha's wounds were allegedly to his face and the scars should be visible for all to see. Look closely at a picture of him...there are no scars.

"His comments were subversive, and helpful to our enemies."
AND his comments were given credibility based on his purported war experinces and decorations!
He's fair game - especially in light of the exisitence of numerous phony, wannabe Vietnam veterans.
