Last May 18, one of the liberal/leftist MSM’s favorites, Democrat John Murtha, accused U. S. Marines in Iraq of murdering civilians.
From a tape of Chris Matthews show that night:
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Let me ask you Mr. Murtha to give us some details about that. Draw us a picture of what happened at Haditha.Month-by-month since last May the charges Murtha and some others recklessly and eagerly made have been disproved.
REP. JOHN “JACK” MURTHA: Well, I’ll tell you exactly what happened. One Marine was killed and the Marines just said we’re going to take care – they don’t know who the enemy is, the pressure was too much on them, so they went into houses and they actually killed civilians. And, and –
MATTHEWS:—was this My Lai? Was this a case of – when you say cold blood Congressman, a lot of people think you’re basically saying you got some civilians sitting in a room around a field and they’re executed. Just on purpose…
MURTHA: That’s exactly it. This was not an action…this was troops…they were so stressed out…
You can read about what should be the final implosion at this post by Michelle Malkin who started questioning the Haditha story from day one.
Now that Murtha and some other Democrats have been exposed as sliming U. S. Marines, do you think those Senate Democrats who've been going after Rush Limbaugh will say anything critical of Murtha and the others?
Hat tips to Malkin and Mike Williams who also started questioning the Haditha lies from day one.
And thank you U. S. Marines. You're great and don't deserve some of the political leaders you risk your lives protecting.
