Murtha was a principal motivator behind the Mogadishu pull-out.
The Mogadishu pull-out was listed by OBL as his moment of epiphany in seeing the US as a “paper tiger”.
When the jihadiscum make the claim that the US can be defeated because Americans are weak, spineless and stupid, they’re speaking directly to an example set by Murtha.
There’s one for the “root causes” type folk to chew on.
And I have no doubt the guy is past it mentally. I noticed he stopped doing as much national TV interviews after this fiasco...
