As long as Murtha was stokin' the war machine, the mongers had no trouble with him. As soon as he stood at a podium and expressed what most of the people were feeling about the Iraqi quagmire, he was a <fill in dirty name here.>
But, love him or hate him, he's dead. As much service as he has contributed to our great nation, I suppose I can get past some questionable moves on his part and suspicious acts of senility, perhaps. Anyways, someone told me once that when your dead, all your debts are paid.

On Wednesday, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said the accounts are true.
Military officials told NBC News that the Marine Corps' own evidence appears to show Murtha is right.
