It's my understanding the Murtha has never been to Iraq. Is that true?

I watched NBC news tonight when they talked about this and they said Murtha recently changed his mind on the war. But I understand that that is not true. In fact he was oppossing the war as early as the early parts of 2004.

I do know Murtha's big announcement back last Thanksgiving, that supposedly was a change of heart -- he had expressed those same views 18 months earlier. He's scum.

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

In my view, he opposes the war not because he cares about the soldiers involved or our National Interests, but because the dimboRATs are out of power. He blows off a lot of hot gas trying to change the balance of power in the nation. Unfortunately, many people listen to him.
