Nobody has overlooked that. It's a central part of this news, and is even addressed prominently in Ms. Irey's press release.
NO it is not prominently stated in here release. She makes reference that Murtha's earlier slanderous comment was made before any marine was charged, yet she fails to tie in the fact he does it again with his response to the lawsuit.
It has been overlooked by most here that this is the second slander.
