Stopped reading right there. Continuing the propoganda that Cleland is some sort of a hero.
The this the same Max Cleland who blew himself up playing with a grenade?
Of course they're furthering the propoganda that Cleland is some sort of hero. That's supposed to give Jack Murtha some sort of credibility. They must think the voter's in this district are majorly stupid.
Read on. But slip your tootsies into your boots. It gets pretty deep.
He served. He lost limbs in a training accident. That qualifies as a hero to anyone who doesn't have an ideological axe to grind.
Cleland will call Diana Irey a "chicken hawk" for not serving in Vietnam.
First Cleland let Kerry use him, now he's letting Murtha.He needs to give it up.
U.S. Sen. Max Clelland, who lost three limbs in Vietnam,
In a non-combat related accident
he was injured while picking up a live grenade that had fallen out of a U.S. helicopter onto the landing pad. He would have been on the helicopter and avoided the injury but he had decided to stay at the supply depot and enjoy a few beers and some R&R with his buddies.
