The L.A. Times has an article today about Democrat threats to cut off funding for additional military operations in Iraq. The article says that, by the time of Bush’s speech Wednesday night, “congressional Democrats across the ideological spectrum were rallying to oppose the president.” Check out the description of one of those Democrats:
Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.), a decorated Vietnam veteran and longtime military supporter, said Friday that he would use his position as chairman of the House appropriations panel’s defense subcommittee to try to block funding for any troop increase in Iraq.
Murtha said he also wanted to force the closure of the controversial military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and put limits on how long military service members could be deployed.
Friends, if even decorated Vietnam veteran and longtime military supporter John Murtha has now turned against this war, all is lost.
