Murtha, Murtha, pants on fire

Not much time today, but everyone’s favorite Congressman from Pennsylvania is apparently a liar:

He had told The Philadelphia Inquirer that Gen. Michael Hagee had given him the information on which he based his charge that Marines killed innocent civilians.

But a spokesman for the Marine Corps said Hagee briefed Murtha on May 24 about Haditha. Murtha had made comments on the case as early as May 17.

On May 17, for example, he said at a news conference, “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

A spokeswoman for Murtha was not immediately available.

He’s not on our side, folks. If he was on our side he would err on the side of caution rather than loudly declare guilt for all the TV cameras and then lie lie lie about where he got his info.

A lot of folks have said “well, he has access to information that we don’t, so if he says they’re guilty then he’s probably right”. But if that’s the case, why is he lying about the source of his information?

Not on our side.

I guess we can whip out the poster again. It always seems to get a good reaction:


Hat tip to Gateway Pundit. And more at Sweetness and Light.


  1. Breaking news: ‘Decorated marine gets accused of treason by cowardly scum’ ‘I didnt like he says. and he’s a democrat.’ replies noted chickenhawk. GOODBYE SHIT HEAD.

  2. Zap: Thanks once again for the constructive criticism and infallible logic. A few notes: A) I didn’t accuse anyone of treason. B) I don’t like what he says. That has nothing to do with the fact that he seems to have lied about his sources. C) I’m simply reporting that the Marines don’t back up Murtha’s claims. A, B, and C apparently make me cowardly scum. Despite the fact that you don’t seem to have any idea what a chickenhawk is (per your earlier comments on the subject) you decide to call me one. At least you don’t descend into further illogical name-calling…
