Why is it off limits to investigate a war record, but not off limits to investigate a lack of war record? Benedict Arnold served his country bravely, but that's not why we remember him. Like Kerry, Murtha is trying to use his war record to establish credibility. I agree that Republicans can be made to look bad for questioning "this brave man's" credentials. If a Republican claims military credentials, the media does the questioning.
Do it on your own time. If you find anything substantive and factual, post a thread at FR, and ping me to it.
Otherwise you'll accomplish two things:
- You'll end up slandering a a fellow American by engaging in a smear campaign.
- You'll help the GOP, who seems to want to go off half-cocked on some sort of mission into the unknown, and in that process, reverse the course of the party.

Let the right wing organizations look into this. Let some witnesses say what they want to say, but the Pub party ought to stay clear of this and just say "we honor anyone who served, medals or not", and leave it at that.
Too close to the Kerry stories to bring up, even if they are true, which certainly looks like the case.
Besides this guy is a joke anyway. I don't know of anyone who's been swayed by him. He's a non issue. Just rip him for what he's doing now.
