Recommendation: Drop Marine murder case
Nearly two years ago, U.S. Rep. John Murtha went on national television and accused Marines of committing murder in cold blood in regard to the so-called Haditha massacre. Well it turns out that this scumbag of a Congressman was completely wrong! But where is the apology? We should demand his immediate resignation for complete douchbaggery! To send snail-mail to his office CLICK HERE . Apparently you cannot email him from his site unless you are a Constituent of the 12th Congressional District of Pennsylvania so here are his phone numbers: 800-289-2642 from Western PA (or) 814-535-2642 (or) 202-225-2065. He is a former Marine which makes this all the more disgusting. According to his own website:
U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha has dedicated his life to serving his country both in the military and in the halls of Congress. He had a long and distinguished 37-year career in the U.S. Marine Corps, retiring from the Marine Corps Reserve as a colonel in 1990; and he has been serving the people of the 12th Congressional District since 1974, one of only 131 people in the nation’s history to have served more than 30 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and one of only 224 Members of Congress who have served 30 or more years.
If I were him I’d be looking over my shoulder for Marines, actually he would never even hear them coming. He owes the country and all of the branches of the Military a very serious apology and needs to step down immediately for his slander. Here are his despicable comments:

SAN DIEGO – An investigating officer recommended Thursday dismissing all charges against a Marine accused of murdering two girls in an assault that killed 24 civilians in the Iraqi town of
Lance Cpl. Stephen B. Tatum, 26, is charged with unpremeditated murder of two girls and negligent homicide on suspicion that he unlawfully killed two men, a woman and a boy. He is also accused of assaulting another boy and a girl.
Investigating officer Lt. Col. Paul Ware said the evidence was too weak for a court-martial. Tatum shot and killed civilians, but “he did so because of his training and the circumstances he was placed in, not to exact revenge and commit murder,” Ware wrote.
“I believe (Lance Cpl.) Tatum’s real life experience and training on how to clear a room took over and his body instinctively began firing while his head tried to grasp at what and why he was firing,” Ware wrote. “By the time he could recognize that he was shooting at children, his body had already acted.
Ware’s recommendation is nonbinding. Lt. Gen. James Mattis, the commanding general overseeing the case, has final say about whether Tatum will be court-martialed.
