Rep. Murtha Calls for 'Immediate Redeployment' of U.S. Troops In Iraq


By Kevin Zeese, Democracy Rising

Now Rep. Pelosi Must Lead Democrats, Republicans Must Separate from Bush

For months, those of us who work Capitol Hill on the Iraq War have heard that Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the leader of the Democratic Party in the House, could not go further on anti-war efforts because the right flank of the Democratic Party was not speaking out against the war. We were always told the key Democrat to watch was Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) a national security Democrat who is the senior member of the Appropriations Committee and a leader on military policy who every week visits wounded service personnel at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington or at the Bethesda naval hospital in suburban Maryland.

The 73 year old Murtha, who has served three decades in Congress, was perhaps the strongest supporter of the war among Democrats when the war began, summarized his views in the first paragraph of a speech given on November 17, 2005:

“The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion. The American public is way ahead of us. The United States and coalition troops have done all they can in Iraq, but it is time for a change in direction. Our military is suffering. The future of our country is at risk. We can not continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interest of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf Region.

Obviously, this man is highly regarded by the American people and is gaining quite a following for HIS resolution, (not the phoney Fake Hunter stunt by the Republicans). Mr Murtha, a man of integrity and compassion, was asked by Tim Russert if he believed Bush lied us into Iraq War. Mr. Murtha obviously cannot bring himself to believe that any president would lie to him or anyone else about something so monumental as the intel to go to war, so he declined to say that Bush lied. Mr Murtha apparently cannot fathom such evil since he himself is a good man. As hard as it is, I believe we all need to contact the Honorable Congressman John Murtha with the truth to help him face the facts about the pre-meditated Iraq plots of the PNAC website links, the Downing Street Memos links , and an interview or two with Karen Kwiatkowski, the whistleblower of the fabricated intel of the Office of Special Plans.

I also watched this morning. I heard a sincere and honorable gentleman reply without hesitation to Tim Russert, without need to double speak. His straightforward and impassioned answer about why he is changing his stance from supporting the war to not supporting it was a two-fold truth: We are not being successful and the troops had done all that had been asked of them and now were targets.

I am so grateful that his experience and overriding concern for our current troops have caused him to put politics aside and speak honestly. It must have been a painful process to watch so many lose life and limb while watching the reasons for going to war just deteriorate and go up in smoke and come to realize this war was wrong.

I believe this honorable gentleman will have to endure an even greater pain when he comes to realize the deception was deliberate---greed, corruption, power---and not one of the deceivers fit to wipe the sand off the boots of our troops.

Is this what our country has turned in to? Enablers for war mongering elitist?
