It's been over three months -- so what??

MATTHEWS: Draw us a picture of what happened in Haditha.

MURTHA: Well I'll tell you exactly what happened. One Marine was killed and the Marines just said we're gonna take care...we don't know who the enemy is, the pressure was too much on them, so they went into houses and actually killed civilians and...I...

MATTHEWS: Was this My Lai? When you say cold blood Congressman, a lot of people think you're basically saying you've got some civilians sitting in a room or out in a field and they're executed on purpose...

MURTHA: That's exactly what happened.

MATTHEWS: ...not because any of the Marines are scared or anybody is scared...

MURTHA: ...this was not an action...this was not...first they tried to say it was an IED, there was no IED involved in this. This was troops, they were so stressed out, they went into houses and killed children, women and children. 24 people they killed. Now this is the kind of stress they are under. Listen, I don't excuse it, but I understand what's happening and the responsibility goes right to the top. This is something that should not have happened, that should have been investigated, they've already relieved three commanding officers...but this is the kind of stuff...stress is going to cause these kind of things. That's why I'm so upset about it.

MATTHEWS: Congressman, I just want to read something from the Marine Corps and then you can continue. The Marine Corps told us today that they're not going to comment today because the investigation is still ongoing. So they're investigating...

Original thread

Today's Wash Post story: Marine Called Haditha Shootings Appropriate


Hopefully a lot of folks around here are still upset about this treasonous comment from Jackass Murtha, plus many more outrageous claims. But so what?

If it really upsets you, have you done anything about it? Posted a few angry remarks on a thread (status quo), or have you done something meaningful?

What's my definition of meaningful?

Well to me cold blood is making up your mind one day you feel like killing and go somwhere pick a victim and kill that person.

Now these fellows lost a comerade, they are tired of being used as targets, They have just narrowly escaped being killed themselves and they are pissed. Thier blood wasnt cold it was hot. The people around where they lost it were either part of the insurgency or they watched the insurgency set up the killing site and did nothing except to stand by anbd watch Americans get killed.

Now right or wrong there was nothing cold bloodd about this act, It was a hot blooded, pissed off, action caused by the present conditions at the time.

Mr, Murtha calling this a cold -blooded act has to be stupid as a bag of dog poop . It may have been a mistake , but it was no cold blooded mistake.

Isn't it amazing how the outlook of an event can change when the "facts" start coming out. Facts that the despicable Murtha was not concerned about when he called the Haditha Marines guilty of cold blooded murder.

Diana Irey will be a refreshing change from the sorry actions of Mutha in the House of Representatives.

Indeed it is. And if these Marines are in fact innocent, they'll have no place to go to get their reputations back. But wouldn't it be a nice consolation for them to see Murtha kicked to the curb and utterly humiliated in November? But that's not gonna happen unless a lot more people get involved.

Thanks for the ping! I sure hope John Abu al-Murtha ends up with more than just egg all over his face - he needs to be thoroughly humiliated, disgraced, and sent packing by the public in his district.

I just want to see the guy voted out of office. This country cannot as we very well understand have him around any longer.

Are you saying folks should actually DO something, sir?

Is that what you are saying?

When they are found innocent they need to sue Murtha for defamation of character by a public official on private citizens.

A suit which may well be thrown out because of Murtha's [much abused] role as a public official.

Maybe -- but it seems to me he (and his words) should be held to an even higher accountability for using his position and power to lie about regular citizens and ruin their reputations and question their character. I know if it was reversed, a private citizen can can get by with saying more about a public official than about another private citizen.

Oh, I'm in complete agreement with you. I just really think these guys have few options available for real recourse. Their true vindication, IMHO, is Murtha's defeat and humiliation this November.

LOL -- I figured you were. There are times I wish I was a lawyer so I could do stuff like that for fun!

From your fingers to God's ears.
