What's left of Hanoi Murpha's brain is not running on all cylinders, he should have been put under 24 hour nursing care a long time ago.


If the Marine Corp can't comment on it because it's still under investigation what gives Murpha the right to blurt it out without the slightest piece of evidence, where's his loyalty to the Corp he himself belonged too?

Wasn't this traitor listed as Chairman of the Senate Arms Committee on the DemocRATs November wish list the other day?

It seems as though Murtha NEVER will pass up an opportunity to whiz on the EAGLE, GLOBE and ANCHOR that he hides behind.

Since profanity is not acceptable on this site, I shall say nothing more about this worthless maggot scumbag.

I just KNOW that my fellow MARINES understand just where I am coming from. That is comfort enough for me.

Semper Fi, Brothers and Sisters!

I strongly encourage we all donate something to this lady's campaign.

Scourges like Murtha need to be sent packing.

Yes Coop. This man, can't call him by his formal honorable title, is going to be remembered by a lot of military folks as being as bad as John Kerry. And surely many a military family, especially with family members now serving and past are seeing him for what he is.
What I hope mostly right now is those Marines did not do what is being circulated.

He's been to Iraq on at least one occasion, where he met with Marines and lied to them. Capt. B of One Marine's View described the visit:

Holy Crap Bat Man I could write a whole Blog entry on Sen Murtha. He came here in Iraq a couple months ago. Praising us for what a great job we did. He visited places out west like Haditha and told the Marines there “we are going to let you finish what you started” as I listened. He probed about requirements and gear and morale and was somewhat disappointed that we had what we needed and kept asking well what do you really need trying to find a problem. He definatly just pissed off a majority of the military now and has gone 180 degree from what he was saying and preaching about “Finishing the job” when he was face to face with us. He has been to Iraq ONCE for 3 days. Everything he is saying now is exactly the opposite of what he was saying when he was with us. He makes [it] sound like he is a front line troop as he speaks. He is two faced and I have seen it first hand standing in front of him as he spoke to us. This is a very sad ploy by the democrats and will do nothing but hurt our troops. Capt B

What in the world is this doddering old fool talking about? Goes right to the TOP???

Bush: Okay, have the marines go in there and kill a couple dozen of these iraqis. They need to let off a little steam.

He is an utter star-chamber wannabe lunatic that needs to be locked up. The marine platoon in question needs to file a class action civil lawsuit for character assassination. unbelievable.

The question is, will we help defeat him, or just gripe around the cyberwatercooler?

Good thread. Instead of bashing away on borders, people could unite to rid the country of congresscritters like Murtha. And the liberal GOP Senate quislings as well. Chafee comes to mind.

PA politics are hard for outsiders to follow. Is Irey getting backing from the GOP or any deep-pockets conservative groups? I assume Murtha does okay with NRA.

He's getting a lot of out-of-state money, while Diana Irey's money has mostly been from within PA.

I will not comment on the treasonous b-turd ex-marine, however, I did receive a lovely thank you letter from the next Congresswoman for the 12th district in PA.

I am sorry to be late to the party. If you still need the address it is:

Irey for Congress
600 Park Avenue
Monongahela, PA 15063
724-258-2300 (in case you want to call and volunteer)
724-258-8600 FAX

Every $1.00 counts and adds up. Send what you can. Volunteer if you live in or near the 12th District.

DEFEAT JOHN MURTHA!!!

Perhaps the smart thing to do, providing he is wrong, is to charge him with treason. As a congressmen, making a trumped up charge against these men is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

jFsKerry was not charged with treason, Turban Dirtbin was not charged with treason, the ex-marine will not be charged with treason. Sad, pathetic, but true.

He better have proof. First they use border security as an amnesty bargaining chip , now this fossil accuses our marines of murder. Lets hope it's planted info which is bogus , so they can get this idiot to go to the press. If this is bad info , he won't be hard to beat. On the other hand he may not remember saying it.

This is a bunch of BS. I currently work at Al Qa'im which is pretty close to Haditha, and this story got around. Why? Because the Marines here threw a reporter from CNN out of the country for lying during a story.

On the border the Marines were sealing a village during Operation Iron Curtain. A house was full of insurgents and the Marines had it surrounded. A woman ran from the house and a Marine went to get her, so she wouldn't be killed. But all the reporter showed was a woman in the house and then the Marines lighting it up. They were all in the chow hall when the story came on and the reporter was in there as well. The base Colonel actually escorted the reporter out and put him on the next Black Hawk out.

Time magazine reported this and it's all BS. Is the news so slanted our troops have to be lied about in a time of war? Mr. Murtha was not there. But sadly, people will believe him because of what position he holds. He sees the news like everyone else and suddenly it's reality. Just like Bush's military records. we make up a story, therefore it must be true.

This whole media mess disgusts me and everyone over here. these men lay their lives on the line and they have to watch the opposite on TV everyday. It undermines the sacrifice of almost 2500 soldiers. And why? because they hate Bush that much. Put politics aside, stop spewing garbage, and let us get the damn job done. You want us out? Shut the hell up and let us do our job, otherwise we will be here a lot longer.

I have a shirt that states:
"Liberalism:Reality Deficit Disorder."

And if this story doesn't prove it, God help our country.

As I read, an investigation is being performed as we address this. While it is very possible they could be guilty, Murtha announcing their guilt so fast betrays every aspect of our legal system.

Move over sKerry, you have a new brother who can't wait to defame the Troops you both claim to support.

That's exactly right. Murtha makes what Durbin did look tame by comparison.

An investigation should of course be conducted. This sounds exactly like a death squad or Al Qaeda operation, but of course we can't rule out bad apples on our side. I would think an investigation would immediately focus on the type of ammunition used.
