James Webb is an authentic American hero, and he is exactly right here.

He is a war hero, but he is wrong here.

He has made a mistake and is in error.

Yes he is an authentic American hero. Whether he is exactly right here is a matter of opinion, and I beleive most patriotic American conservatives are of the opinion that he is dead wrong here.

Thorin, I disagree.

The only reason, and I mean the ONLY reason Murtha got any space at all is because he presents himself (and is presented by others) as an unimpeachable source of combat wisdom which lends him credibility.

Because his actions and words have both direct and indirect deleterious effects on the conduct of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as such may increase both the loss of life and the quantity of blood shed by our military, it is not only right, but necessary to debunk him if indeed he is a phony.

The exact same thing was true with John Kerry, and is true now with Murtha.

Murtha brought this on himself by questioning the ability of our troops and deeming them "not worth" of his joining.

Murtha's fault is allowing himself to be a puppet for his Democrat masters.

Read this and then see what you think. Pay particular attention to the comments by Don Bailey, fellow Democrat from Pennsylvania.

If the RATS want to make this an issue, they will be seriously hurt.
