Today, Murtha is a traitor or tool of traitors --- while under suspicion for ethics problems --- and we're being asked to cut him slack because he's a "hero".
It's NOT out of line when he and his defenders demand that his critics give him "credit" for his "heroic past" while he behaves as a unethical traitor in the present -- during time of war...
I suspect the facts will show that Murtha has been a lying, posing asshole for the vast majority of his worthless, lying, cheating, stealing life...
Murtha, like Kerry, Kennedy, etc, etc, prove the saying that politicians are our only inherently criminal class.
Supposedly, a newspaper has seen Murtha's medical records.
"A May 12, 2002, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article reported that "Marine Corps casualty records show that Murtha was injured in 'hostile' actions near Danang, Vietnam, on March 22, 1967 and May 7, 1967. In the first incident, his right cheek was lacerated, and in the second he was lacerated above his left eye. Neither injury required evacuation."
Well said! There are too many of these scumbags desecrating the honor of the silent ones. Throughout history there have been those bootlickers who actively seek rewards through connections for political purposes, most were officers, most were liars. Let their peers, those who were with them, expose them for what they are are. We owe it to the dead and the walking dead and in this case, to the Corps.
I don't ever remember any Intelligence Officers in the field, when there was shooting going on anyway, in my Viet Nam experience, maybe the crotch was different. I do remember a directive from MAC-V about the awarding of Hearts in '67, that said you had to have some Iron in you to get one, there was a lot of Medal inflation going on at the time.
I'm just not cool that we smear every war-vet Moonbat that comes along. If he was trying to run for "Commander in Chief", then I would be on boad.
Bum a smoke? (That's ex-Navy for Semper Fi)
