Truthdigger of the Week: John Murtha

Jun 17, 2006
Truthdig salutes Pa Rep John Murtha for his sustained leadership in demanding a pullout of US troops out from Iraq Particularly inspiring was his conduct during Thursday's congressional debate over the war A GOP congressman all but called Murtha a coward, and the 38-year Marine veteran thundered back a response that sent the congressman scurrying for cover In doing so, Murtha again demonstrated the Republican fallacy of equating a call for withdrawal with weakness It's a lesson more Democrats could stand to learn Watch the video of Murtha on the House floor Read Murtha's words from the day of the debate (Wash Po, AP, N Times) UPDATE: Murtha steamrolls over Tim Russert (h/t: Huff Po).
