...isn't going to cancel out statements that are perceived as "personal insults".

The fact is he didn't fling personal insults.....he accused them of "killing in cold blood" which would be the death sentence for them. This thing has gone far beyond school yard insults. I am encouraged to hear that the good people of PA are willing to throw away their pork roast to get rid of this guy.

The case, to be filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, says Murtha's statements in the press about the case have pressured the Pentagon to pursue charges against Wuterich and other Marines, and to use them as "scapegoats" to prove that allegations of atrocities committed against Iraqis will be pursued, "no matter how baseless."

These Marines are fighting for their lives, AGAIN! Only this time it is not on the battlefield, but in their own country against their own elected officials and the perverted American "legal" system.

Just got home from camping/fishing and found this great news.

If this Marine needs some help financially to pay for legal fees I'm in for a small amount, whatever I can afford.

Counselor , please enlighten us if the "speech and debate clause"; would let the weasel, weasel out of this?

From the article, "...suing for libel and invasion of privacy, also wrote that Murtha made the comments outside of his official scope as a congressman."

He's not protected.

He [Smolla] said the suit shows that Wuterich probably thinks he did nothing wrong.

And, so do I!

It also shows that Marines, like Sgt. Wuterich, manage to stay strong in situations that would crumble weaker beings.

Hang in there, Sgt. Wuterich. You have much support among the American people.

I'm doing my level best to remain civil in a public forum.
My comments were in the context of a response to a query of how a current member of the military can sue a sitting Congressman.

Forgive me if my comments appear to be understated, but I'm well aware that this forum is monitored by others and have no intention of saying anything that can be twisted to give "aid and comfort" to that - sometimes there are no words good enough. :)

I will say that I don't consider $75,000 to be anywhere near enough money. ;)

I was not chastising you. I understand the need for us all to stay as civil as we can. There is no need to apologize. I appreciate your work on the forum and for Diana!

I agree with your $75,000. comment as well.

"I was not chastising you."

Understood :) Just felt it would help if I clarified a bit.

Make no mistake folks, FR is a powerful catalyst, along with other sites on the internet. :) "They" are watching us and we do have an impact. ;)

Geez, even the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat finally had to address the reality of the situation in the Sunday paper editorial:

"...The technology that allows for blogs, Web forums and e-mail lists has also given many people a voice in politics that might not be otherwise available.

You can speak your mind and even have an impact on high-level political decisions - if enough people agree with you.

It is First Amendment rights in the modern age. And we are all better for having the right to freely exchange our opinions - 'extreme' or otherwise.

A free society can be that way because we are not told what to think. We can hear or read various viewpoints and make our own decisions. And be critical of our leaders.

Even at the click of a mouse."

Diana Irey understands this. At least *someone* at the Trib "gets it". Robert Gleason(head of the state GOP) is the current recepient of the "hard lesson", but one can tell that he doesn't quite "get it". John Murtha, being of my parent's generation doesn't have a clue that times have changed. ;)

Of course, "lag time" being what it is, there was no mention of the lawsuit in today's Trib. It will be interesting to see how soon they print it. ;)

WooHoo! About time I may add. It is time for the bloviating CONgress critters to realize they are supposed to work FOR us not AGAINST us!

It will be interesting to see how soon they print it.

Indeed! Please post it when it comes out. ;*)

Thanks, Julie. Maybe Murtha will get an inkling of the Marines mottos now.

I don't expect this to lead evening news though.

Besides being a great bumper sticker, these would be great to hand out when the rats gather to spew their treason and sedition and dare to call it patriotism.
