IMHO this is the wrong way to go. This isn't a Swiftee situation where Murtha's fellow Marines in his Vietnam unit have a bone to pick with him. This just makes it appear that any former military who criticizes the administration will have his war record attacked. This guy may well be right, but it's a bad image. Murtha wore the uniform and served honorably.

What Murtha has been saying about the Iraq war and the men and women fighting it is a disgrace to the uniform he wore and ought to be attacked. That's where this should be fought.

I disagree. Murtha has stated by virtue of his service and his medals that he is more qulaified to comment on Iraq than Cheney, Rumsfield or Rice. He himself raised his record as a pertinent point in this issue and therefore it is fair game to research it and publicize any discrepancies in the record.
