Skip to comments.John Murtha: Caving In to Arabs Since 1980 (Ann Coulter)
Posted on 02/21/2007 3:32:03 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Rumored ex-Marine John Murtha, Democrat congressman from Pennsylvania, has become the darling of the cut-and-run crowd for trying to place absurd restrictions on our troops, amounting to withdrawal from Iraq. Were Arab sheiks whispering into his ear?
In case you missed the video on "I Love the '80s," Rep. Murtha was caught on tape negotiating bribes with Arab sheiks during the FBI's Abscam investigation in 1980. The Abscam investigation was conducted by Jimmy Carter's Justice Department, not right-wing Republicans.
On tape, Murtha told the undercover FBI agent: "When I make a f***in' deal I want to make sure that I know exactly what I'm doing and ... what I'm sayin' is, a few investments in my district ..."
It is a profound and shocking fact that Murtha even showed up at this meeting, knowing he was going to be negotiating bribe money with Arabs.
Murtha added that he wanted the investment in his district to look like it was done "legitimately ... when I say legitimately, I'm talking about so these bastards up here can't say to me ... 'Jesus Christ, ah, this happened,' then he (someone else), in order to get immunity so he doesn't go to jail, he starts talking and fingering people and then the son of a bitch all falls apart."

Pictures please! ^^
You want more pictures of Murtha ?!?!
Well, I AM on a diet ...
should become as ubiquitous expression as French Surrender Monkeys
Interesting how all these low-lifes get themselves elected to Congress. Any decent people there?
Great article as usual by Ann.
I like "Defeatocrats", what do you think??
Why aren't republican congressmen calling this guy a treasonous traitor and criminal every time he opens his mouth in congress?
Someone should make that a bumper sticker. It will be a big hit!
Ah, yes, our future Vice President!
And now this worthless lying fat b@stard holds in his filthy hands the fate of our brave soldiers in Iraq!
G-D, is there no justice!!!?
Thank you, Ann. I had hoped someone would slap the silliness out of John Murtha -- and I was sure just "wishing" wouldn't make it so. Silly, me. Let's go on to Nancy Pelosi and another smack-down there. Ah, it is a good day, after all.
Wasn't there a more complete tape of this that came out in September? Where is it?????
You can thank the voters in his district for that.
They had a choice and choose him.
Any further comment would probably get me banned or suspended so I will let it go at that.
