Curious how this paper (which endorsed Kerry in 2004) overlooked the veterans' understandable outrage regarding Murtha's reckless and treasonous Haditha guilty verdict, and even more curious (not!) was its neglect to mention that despite a huge voter registration advantage Kerry only managed 51% in this district two years ago.

While all this makes good political theater, its effect in November is questionable.

ROTFLMAO!! Okay, so then why all the media interest? And all the Murtha attacks?

Please support Murtha's worthy opponent - Commissioner Diana Irey.

Stopped reading right there. Continuing the propoganda that Cleland is some sort of a hero.

the first sentence of the news release had been re-written to remove the word "charged." The original claim had been dropped down the memory hole without explanation.

ROTFL...Were they misrepresenting the facts, just inept or avoiding another lawsuit? We'll never know because Murtha's minders won't write a script for him to explain.

>>His position actually is that the U.S. and its coalition troops have done all they can do and that the war can not be won militarily<<

I don't believe that's quite what Murtha said... I remember it being significantly worse than that.

Hi, a new guy here.. but I seem to recall that there is more to Murtha than meets the eye:

From The Washington Times:

Last June, the Los Angeles Times reported how the ranking member on the defense appropriations subcommittee has a brother, Robert Murtha, whose lobbying firm represents 10 companies that received more than $20 million from last year's defense spending bill. "Clients of the lobbying firm KSA Consulting -- whose top officials also include former congressional aide Carmen V. Scialabba, who worked for Rep. Murtha as a congressional aide for 27 years -- received a total of $20.8 million from the bill," the L.A. Times reported.
In early 2004, according to Roll Call, Mr. Murtha "reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city of San Francisco." Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights to the land. The same article also reported how Mr. Murtha has been behind millions of dollars worth of earmarks in defense appropriations bills that went to companies owned by the children of fellow Pennsylvania Democrat, Rep. Paul Kanjorski. Meanwhile, the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan campaign-finance watchdog group, lists Mr. Murtha as the top recipient of defense industry dollars in the current 2006 election cycle.

Whatever it is, this isn't Treason

"Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year because the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth,"

For an American Congressman to say this during the time of war, Sir, is definitely treason.

"A news conference held by his opponents in downtown Johnstown Thursday was dwarfed by a pro-Murtha rally at which Cleland was featured"

Seems to me I read the opposite was true..that the rally for Murtha was quite smaller..

I wonder if "Murtha" will join "Quisling" and "Benedict Arnold" in our future lexicon . . .

Isn't is wonderful how when a Democrat dispenses with pork, it makes him politically smart and caring, but when a Republican does it, he is Boss Tweed?

I think I will contact Wuterich's attorney and let him know that Murtha's faxed version of his press release stated that Wuterich had been "charged".

Murhta is the gift that keeps on giving, though I'd much rather see him used as daisy fertilizer.

What smear?! Murtha DID call for the US to cut and run.
