John Murtha’s Unhappy Birthday Surprise: Haditha “Massacre” Unravels
By: John Lillpop
June 17, 2008 was a huge day in the life and time of America’s demented old lefty from Pennsylvania, the dishonorable John Murtha, Democrat, of course.
To begin with, this corrupt anti-American celebrated his 76th birthday. How the good people of Pennsylvania have seen fit to elect and reelect this unrepentant fraud over the years should be the subject of an immediate Congressional Blue Ribbon investigation.
Notwithstanding Murtha’s birthday, there was some good news on June 17.
Namely, a military judge dismissed charges against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis in the so-called Haditha massacre.
That means that seven of the eight American troops vilified by the ill informed and hateful Murtha have been subsequently vindicated by military justice, with an eight victim awaiting trial.
Zero for seven. Even by liberal standards, that is a poor showing.
While Lt. Col. Chessani, Lt. Andrew Grayson, Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum, Capt. Lucas McConnell, Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt, and Sgt. Sanick Dela Cruz have had their lives all but ruined by reckless allegations, leftist enemies of America like John Murtha are not held accountable.
Remember, John Murtha was instrumental in igniting the Haditha firestorm of misinformation when the irresponsible lefty said the following:
“Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”
For that statement, surely an act of treason, John Murtha should be removed from office and subjected to civil and criminal prosecution of behalf of Lt. Col. Chessani, Lt. Andrew Grayson, Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum, Capt. Lucas McConnell, Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt, and Sgt. Sanick Dela Cruz, and their families.
