Murtha Ain’t Buying What the Pentagon’s Selling
Posted on Mar 6, 2006
AP: WASHINGTON - The Pentagon’s top general acknowledged Sunday that “anything can happen” in Iraq, but he said things aren’t as bad as some say. “I wouldn’t put a great big smiley face on it, but I would say they’re going very, very well from everything you look at.”
The comments drew criticism that Gen. Peter Pace is glossing over problems in the three-year-old U.S. campaign.
“Why would I believe him?” asked Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., a major critic of the Bush administration’s handling of the war. “This administration, including the president, (has) mischaracterized this war for the last two years.”
