It is predictable that he would be discredited. After all, he does not support the agenda of those who benefit from the war in Iraq. The pattern of such character assassinations are always the same: first, discredit anything positive or good that he has done (war hero). Second, make him out to be insane, or at least a bit flaky.
Murtha is courageous (to speak out against the US staying in Iraq) and sane (it would be insane to want to stay in Iraq much longer, since the US has gained nothing from the war and already it's cost a trillion dollars and over 2000 Americans and 30,000 to 100,000 Iraqis killed, the latter mostly civilians).
TROLL ALERT....Now like a good little boy get on back to DU...there are men here having a discussion and you wouldn't understand...
I warn my wife about people telling war stories...More often (about 75%) then not they are full of it. I haven't yet seen a first-account witness come foward and defend Murtha.
Hanoi Kerry Timeline of a traitor
includes FBI files
Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), the political wing of the Vietcong, and other Viet Cong and Communist Vietnamese representatives to the Paris peace talks, a trip he now calls a "fact-finding" mission.
(U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953, declares it illegal for a U.S. citizen to go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power.)
He is a traitor to the brave men and women who are serving over there. A real hero does not brag about medals. I know my brother has many but I do not have a clue as to what they are. I hope my niece does.
