Our buddy, Coby Dillard, sends us a link to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report that the folks at Walter Reed Military Medical Center are planning on naming their cancer clinic for backstabbing, lying, cheating, ex-Marine John Murtha;
“It’s a very fitting tribute to my husband because he cared so much about the troops and making sure they were taken care of. I’m delighted, ” said Joyce Murtha, whose husband served in Congress from 1974 until his death in February 2010. For much of that time, the former Marine either chaired or was the ranking member of the House panel that oversaw defense spending. He is the longest-serving congressman in Pennsylvania history.
Yeah, I’d expect his widow to have nothing but good stuff to say about her dead husband, but his illegal and immoral activities are well-known through-out DC circles. If any one person is responsible for the war against terror, it’s Murtha, since he convinced President Clinton to withdraw prematurely from Somalia and he did his best to undermine efforts of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What I don’t understand is that Murtha is dead now, naming the clinic for him will get the clinic no tangible benefit so why stick their finger in our eye like that? I hope they put up a sign to remind the Marines who are treated at the clinic that John P. Murtha called them “cold blooded killers”.
