What, exactly, does whatever Murtha did near Danang in 1967 have to do with the soundness of his stance on Iraq?

Ah, the old distract and destroy leftist illogic tactic. The left has lifted Murtha on their shoulders and proclaimed him to be a gen-you-wine war hero.

However, when their gen-you-wine war hero repeatedly demands that we cut and run as he did in Somalia and more recently with Iraq, one is within the boundaries of sanity by questioning what it is that makes Murtha such a gen-you-wine war hero.

If we examine the record of another gen-you-wine war hero such as Audie Murphy, we would have to ask the question what would he think about our operations in Somalia and Iraq and would he join with Murtha in calling for our immediate retreat and capitulation, or would he want us to finish what Saddam started?

As usual, the WaPo is practicing the usual leftist tactic of appearing to address the issue head-on by distracting the reader from the topic to attack the counter-argument. The problem for the WaPo is that the counter-argument, as it typically does when we are talking leftist positions, has merit; and they can't distract their way out of it.
