Believe me, there's method in my madness. However, I'd still rather see him investigated and arraigned for all the other stuff. There's probably a lot more jail time involved. What would that do to Pelosi's corruption argument?
What I think we are all missing here...is the DD-214 and the implications. Its not Purple Heart history that would be damaged by the release of the DD-214...in fact...it would be a plus just to show the wording on the document. I have no arguement with any of Purple Heart business. But when you don't want the entire DD-214 to come out...it makes me wonder what else you did...and if you got any involuntary separation paperwork or if you were court-martialed for some action (like striking a officer or AWOL for two weeks). This is the case in front of us today. Murtha hasn't laid out the DD-214 for a reason...Purple Heart comments aren't the reason...he's got something else that he hasn't admitted.
For this reason, I think he is a open target. Any man who puts his hat in the ring for congress or the senate...better put his entire reputation on the line and lay out the path he took to get to that point. I can say alot of negative things about McCain...but he has a military career that cannot be stained. I don't think Murtha can sit at the same table as McCain...nor can he stand judgement on military decisions of the president.
