Hold 'em Accountable

I'm glad to see this:
By Dennis B. Roddy, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Sept. 25, 2008

One of the Marines cleared in the killings of Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha plans to sue his congressman today for statements he says defamed him and other members of his squad.

Former Marine Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt, 24, of Canonsburg, will file a civil lawsuit against U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha, D-Johnstown, who was widely quoted two years ago saying that eight Marines carried out a cold-blooded killing of 24 civilians in the Iraqi town on Nov. 19, 2005.

Charges were later dropped against all but one of the Marines, with a military prosecutor calling allegations against Mr. Sharratt "incredible."
How unfair! Democrats are not supposed to be accountable! It's Bush's fault!

I also hope that U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha becomes former U.S. Rep. John Murtha after November's election.
