Murtha finds military progress in trip to Iraq Warns that Iraqis must do more for their own security Thursday, November 29, 2007 By Jerome L. Sherman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. John Murtha today said he saw signs of military progress during a brief trip to Iraq last week, but he warned that Iraqis need to play a larger role in providing their own security and the Bush administration still must develop an exit strategy.
"I think the 'surge' is working," the Democrat said in a videoconference from his Johnstown office, describing the president's decision to commit more than 20,000 additional combat troops this year. But the Iraqis "have got to take care of themselves."
Violence has dropped significantly in recent months, but Mr. Murtha said he was most encouraged by changes in the once-volatile Anbar province, where locals have started working closely with U.S. forces to isolate insurgents linked to Al Qaeda.

Let the layoffs begin ... As Newt found out, that when it gets tough.
Thanks for posting. It gives me a perfect chance to say that I could not care less what that ignorant, ugly, traitorous, black-hearted excuse for a feeble-minded senator has to say. I can’t believe he’s alive and Henry Hyde is gone.
[. . .(Murtha said) the central government in Baghdad is “dysfunctional.”]
Yeah, Johnny, just think of how great it’d be if we hadn’t lost the war.
Guess who is afraid of a law suit?
Murtha offered a compromise on the funding today. Finally feeling the heat. Not nearly enough and too late.
Fry baby fry.
Who gives a rat's ass what you think you pork bellied fat treasonous bastard! Too bad you sucked up taxpayers' money for your utterly useless opinion!
This scumbag is not a Senator, he/she/it is a Rep.
Hey Murtha..tell you’re bud Harry ..
Oh by the way, fund the war and stfu.
As they said over at HotAir.com, here’s steaming pot of reality for your face Mr Murtha.
