Eat it, Murtha

The alleged ringleader of US troops who killed 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians in 2005 in Haditha will not face murder charges, a US Marines spokesman said.

Sgt Frank Wuterich, 27, will stand trial for voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, dereliction of duty and other charges, officials said.

The decision was made by Lt Gen Samuel Helland, who is overseeing the case.

Sgt Wuterich is the last of four marines to have the murder charge against him dropped.

Another marine, 1st Lt Andrew Grayson, was ordered to face court-martial for making false official statements and other charges.

If you didn’t know, Murtha has refused to apologize about his comments calling U.S. soldiers “cold blooded killers” and is holding out hope that these marines will be convicted of murder.

“there was no firefight, there was no IED (improvised explosive device) that killed these innocent people. Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

    I hope you and all your readers will offer whatever support you can to Murtha’s opponent, Lt. Col. Bill Russell. You can do so by going to his web site at: http://www.williamrussellforcongress.com. I write regularly about the Russell-Murtha race. Thanks to all supporters of the “Haditha Marines.”
