Update: By the way, in the excitement over the confrontation itself, a very significant part of the story is being overlooked:
"And Congressman Moran, 200 of your constituents just returned from Afghanistan. We never got a letter from you; we never got a visit from you. You didn't come to our homecoming. The only thing we got from any of our elected officials was one letter from the governor of this state thanking us for our service in Iraq, when we were in Afghanistan."That State would be Virginia. They've got a new Governor now, the one in question has moved on.
Moran did respond a bit later in the meeting, first citing his current reasons for being "anti-war", then adding that his definition of support is different and unpredictable:
...and for those reasons I didn't support the war, and while I certainly support the dedication of the troops and will provide whatever is necessary both to protect them and to provide health care for them, far better that they not lose their lives and not lose their limbs in a mission that is not justified than to give the kind of predictable support that some others have.
If Moran feels justified in undercutting 'the troops' because he doesn't agree with the policies of the administration, how can American military servicemen and -women ever be sure of his support? Some fair-weather friend...Posted by DaveP. at January 16, 2006 09:06 AM
Once a Marine always a Marine does not apply to Murtha. He is a disgrace to what our wonderful Marines are.Posted by Wild Thing at January 16, 2006 04:34 PM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
