    A lobbying firm with close ties to the late Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) — and a central player in some of the most questionable earmarks sponsored by Murtha — appears to have closed its doors. KSA Consulting was at the center of a project that led to the first criminal convictions tied to a Murtha earmark. The firm at one point employed Murtha’s brother Kit as a lobbyist, as well as Carmen Scialabba, Murtha’s longtime Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense aide. A database maintained by the Clerk of the House indicates that KSA has not filed lobbying disclosure forms since July...

      Murtha speech gets cheers and jeers By Richard Robbins TRIBUNE-REVIEW Sunday, May 14, 2006 U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha -- one of the most vocal critics of President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq -- drew cheers and boos during his commencement speech at Seton Hill University on Saturday when he once again called for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops. "We don't care. This isn't about graduation," Leonard Pierce, of North Huntingdon, the parent of a graduate, called out several times from the audience. The catcalls prompted shouts from other audience members that Murtha should be allowed...

    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...

    One of the mysteries these days is the about-face of a supposed Democrat war hawk, Representative John Murtha of Pennsylvania. Considered a supporter of the Iraq conflict, the decorated former Marine suddenly came out with statements calling for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq and that the war is not winnable. After the liberal media feasted on his sudden burst on the national scene, Murtha became the new lightning rod for the antiwar, anti-American movement. Recently, he said that the US military was worn out and unable to protect Americans should a security crisis emerge. And the media again...
