    Roll Call via Drudge Report ^ | November 12, 2006 | John Bresnahan
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in line to become Speaker in January, is throwing her support to Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) in the race for Majority Leader, a move that will be an early test of her influence and will weigh heavily on Murtha's contest with Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) for the post. Pelosi, in a letter distributed Sunday to newly elected House Democrats, wrote that Murtha's outspoken opposition to the war in Iraq helped change the electoral campaign for the House this fall. Murtha began calling for a U.S. pullout from Iraq a year ago, and his open opposition to...

"There's a ton of information that isn't out there yet," said one lawyer, who, like the others, would speak only on the condition of anonymity because a potential client has not been charged. The radio message traffic, he said, will provide a different view of the incident than has been presented by Rep. John...

    WASHINGTON — House Republican leaders drafted legislation on Thursday that rejects calls for withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq as "fundamentally inconsistent with achieving victory" and said they would force a vote on Friday. It would be the second time in five weeks that GOP leaders maneuvered for a vote on the war in the face of Democratic calls for a timetable for withdrawal. The resolution expresses the commitment of the House "to achieving victory in Iraq." • Click here to read the proposed anti-Iraq pullout legislation.

    In Search of Murtha's ArmyBy Jed Babbin Published 12/13/2005 12:10:46 AM Last week, I went to Iraq to search for John Murtha's army. You know: the one he described as "broken, worn out," and "living hand to mouth." Thanks to the help of some friends in low places, I met with a lot of the troops and almost all of the commanders around Baghdad and at Camp Fallujah. Murtha was not just wrong, but damnably wrong. And so, unsurprisingly, is Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean, who declared the war unwinnable. I promised to bring back as many of the facts...

    Republicans have discovered what may end up being a most powerful weapon in next year's congressional elections: leading Democrats' own words. A new video Web ad by the Republican National Committee sent out to activists and state parties features the simplest of formats. We see a TV screen in an undisclosed location. Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean is pictured, and we hear him on a San Antonio radio station last week saying, "The idea that we're going to win this war is an idea that unfortunately is just plain wrong." A white flag flies across the image, and Sen. Barbara...

    Dean Seeks to Clarify Comments on Iraq 16 minutes ago Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean said Thursday his assertion that the United States cannot win the war in Iraq was reported "a little out of context," saying Democrats believe a new U.S. strategy is needed to succeed there. Seeking to clarify a statement in a Texas radio interview that Republicans harshly assailed and some Democrats questioned, Dean said, "They kind of cherry-picked that one the same way the president cherry-picked the intelligence going into Iraq." Dean was questioned on CNN about an interview he gave Monday to radio station WOAI...

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Jack Murtha, who re-ignited the debate over Iraq with a proposal last month to begin a fast drawdown of troops in Iraq, said Wednesday that President Bush has lost credibility with the public over his Iraq policy. "I'm showing you that I don't see the kind of progress he sees. ... I don't know that you can call him dishonest, but certainly, the public is not buying it," Murtha, D-Pa., said just hours after Bush delivered a speech on economic progress in Iraq. Murtha renewed his call for redeployment of troops, laying out what he said was...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Democratic lawmakers accused President George W. Bush of glossing over problems in Iraq ahead of the war-torn country's elections. The US opposition returned to the attack over Iraq policy after Bush's latest speech in which the president highlighted "tangible progress" in rebuilding Iraq's economy. "As he did last week, the president once again failed to provide a strategy for success or speak honestly to the American people about the failures in rebuilding Iraq and the challenges that lie ahead," said Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate. "Instead, he cherry picked isolated examples of Iraq's reconstruction...

    MURTHA: Let me start by going through a timeline and then get to what the president said. In May 1, 2003, the president declared it was a major -- end of major operations. Then he sent John Hamre to Iraq. John Hamre was undersecretary of defense in the Clinton administration. And he found all kinds of problems. He said: You got three months, three critical months to get this thing under control if you want to control the security; 12 months at the most, but three months are crucial, the first three months.

    Strong antiwar comments in recent days by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean have opened anew a party rift over Iraq, with some lawmakers warning that the leaders' rhetorical blasts could harm efforts to win control of Congress next year. Several Democrats joined President Bush yesterday in rebuking Dean's declaration to a San Antonio radio station Monday that "the idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong." The critics said that comment could reinforce popular perceptions that the party is weak on military matters...

    (SAN ANTONIO) -- Saying the "idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong," Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean predicted today that the Democratic Party will come together on a proposal to withdraw National Guard and Reserve troops immediately, and all US forces within two years. Dean made his comments in an interview on WOAI Radio in San Antonio. "I've seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam.

    For the past two years, the old-line media has been more than willing to help broadcast the allegations made by the anti-war crowd that "Bush lied, soldiers died." However, no matter how many times the likes of Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan have made this allegation, they've never been able to make it stick. The only thing they've proven thus far is that they hold a twisted hatred of this country and feel consumed with resentment toward America's economic, military and political superiority. It turns out that it's not George Bush or Dick Cheney who has been lying to the...

    LATROBE, Pa. - Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year because the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth," U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., told a civic group. Two weeks ago, Murtha called for U.S. troops to leave Iraq now. He spoke to a group of community and business leaders in Latrobe on Wednesday, the same day President Bush said troops would be withdrawn when they've achieved victory, not under an artificial deadline set by politicians. Murtha predicted most troops will be out of Iraq within a year, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Thursday. "I predict...
