"The Trial’s Still Going On"
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, September 18, 2007

Jack Murtha is confronted by a young lad on video, asking if Murtha would like to step back from his "in cold blood" comments about the Haditha marines.

Mr. Murth'a reply? "The trial's still going on." Yes. No doubt he doesn't want to prejudice the proceedings in any way.

Too bad he didn't display that touching concern for the course of justice before the charges started getting dropped.

He also fell back on that good old standard, "Did you ever serve? I enlisted for Korea!" I guess prior military service immunizes you against...well...anything, huh?

Not for Marines in Iraq. We have to assume they are guilty.

Murtha... ick. I hope I never meet him face to face - I don’t know if I could be civil or not. What a poor excuse for a human he is now... regardless of what he’s done in the past.

Shoot, that’s all he’s ever had in the first place, was his military service, and he’s prostituted that honor like a $2.00 whore.
He’s a text book example for saluting the rank, not the man.

As I recall Benedict Arnold served too, and well.
But I’m not implying Murtha is a traitor to the nation, just to the the Marines.

When faced with the consequences of his misdeeds, he cut and run.

John Murtha has developed into a rank coward.

Murtha is one of most vile pustule’s to ever malign the body politic. He is one of my favorite targets.

Whether or not the defendants are aquitted, the prosecution hasn’t attempted to dispute that the Iraqis in question were killed while unarmed and were not involved in violence. The dismissals have been based on the following logic: "you did what you were accused of, but it was ok."

The acquittals are a black mark on US armed forces: not Murtha. The conduct involved is not just a war crime - convicted or not - but one hundred percent contrary to COIN doctrine in 2007.

The smearing of Murtha is a sideshow. If you can’t shoot the message, shoot the messenger.

Is that the job of the PROSECUTORS? To dispute the crime happened?

The second point is, Murtha had not a clue as to whether the allegations had an ounce of substance before he pronounced verdict nationally.
That’s the bleedin point here, ain’t it.
