    The Hill ^ | May 8, 2007 | Alexander Bolton
    May 08, 2007 Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) exploded at a colleague on the Appropriations defense subcommittee, Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.), on the House floor last week after Tiahrt voted in a private meeting to cut $23 million from a project in Murtha’s district. By voting to shut down the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) in Murtha’s district, Tiahrt violated an unspoken rule of the Appropriations Committee: Don’t mess with your fellow appropriators’ projects. This is especially important when the project belongs to the chairman of a powerful subcommittee. Murtha vented his anger against Tiahrt for voting last Wednesday to kill...

    WASHINGTON — The race to be the No. 2 House Democratic leader turned nasty Tuesday, with challenger Rep. John Murtha accusing opponents of "swift-boat style attacks" that hark back to his days being investigated in the FBI's 1980 Abscam sting.

    IREY CAMP: TRIB-REVIEW 'POLL' DOESN'T PASS THE SMELL TEST Thursday, October 12, 2006 (MONONGAHELA, October 12) -- Irey for Congress general consultant Bill Pascoe -- responding to the release of a suspect survey in today's Pittsburgh Tribune-Review -- today released the following statement: "Today's Tribune-Review contained a report on a 'poll' with suspect methodology and even more suspect results. No one interested in the race between Jack Murtha and Diana Irey should be fooled into thinking this race is actually where this 'poll' says it's at -- unless, of course, the interested person is a Jack Murtha supporter, and his...

    IREY TO MURTHA: MUST YOU DEMAND AN ISRAELI SURRENDER, TOO? Wednesday, August 09, 2006 (MONONGAHELA, August 9) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- continuing her focus on Jack Murtha's stated desire for Israel to lay down its arms and stop defending itself against attacks from Marine-murdering Hezbollah terrorists in southern Lebanon -- today released the following statement: "One week ago, Jack Murtha said he wanted an immediate cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | 8/2/06 | James O'Toole
    Mr. Murtha, speaking yesterday at a Post-Gazette editorial board meeting, was asked if he favored a cease-fire in the campaign north of Israel's border. "I think so," he said. "I think it would be very difficult to justify continuing on." Referring to the Bush administration's position, he said: "You know, they say, 'Well, we want a long-term cease-fire.' It seems to me you start with a cease-fire, and then you try to work out the details long term. If you don't, and you continue to have heavy-handed military action -- and I support heavy-handed military action because it saves your...

    A 12-year old survivor of the alleged massacre of innocent civilians by U.S. Marines patrolling Haditha has admitted she had prior knowledge of the plot to detonate an IED as their convoy was passing by her house on the morning of Nov. 19, 2005. In a CNN interview broadcast Wednesday, Safa Younis - who says eight members of her family were killed by U.S. troops - recalled that she was getting ready for school as the Marine Humvee approached. "I was planning to go to school. I was about to go out of bed. I knew the bomb would explode...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | May 31, 2006 | Michelle Malkin
    Democrat Rep. John "Cut and Run" Murtha thinks he knows the truth about Haditha -- and he has been blabbing it to every last cable show host that will host him. The loose-lipped former Marine has accused troops of wantonly killing some two dozen civilians, including children, "in cold blood" in the terrorist stronghold in Iraq last November. There are two ongoing military investigations into the incident itself and the actions of higher-ups in the Haditha aftermath. Let me repeat that: The investigations are ongoing. Not complete. Official reports aren't expected for several weeks. I do not know the truth...
