TIME regrets the error

Friday, June 09, 2006

I do not know what happened at Haditha, but it seems a lot of other folks know a lot less than they said they did. flopping Aces has a round up on Haditha which includes some retractions by Time.

If Murtha has unjustly accused the wrong men, will he still get the leadership position he covets in House? I think not.

“I do not know what happened at Haditha”

I also don’t know what happened. Still, if I were to bet a few bucks---it is my tentative belief that this is a scam to get money from the U.S. government. These accusers are well aware that the payoff could be very lucrative.

“..but it seems a lot of other folks know a lot less than they said they did. flopping Aces has a round up on Haditha which includes some retractions by Time.”

I am still a subscriber to Time. Thankfully, my subscription will eventually run out. This magazine simply takes it for granted that the accusers are telling the truth. The gullibility of Time’s journalists is embarrassing to say the least.

“If Murtha has unjustly accused the wrong men, will he still get the leadership position he covets in House? I think not.”

John Murtha has just helped the Republican Party. Is he getting money under the table from Karl Rove? I suspect this idiocy is another example of the influence of the Daily Kos crowd. Murtha and other left-wing politicians listen closely to the leftist blogging community.

Time. I may have subscribed once back in, oh, 1982 or so.

Murtha has graced the halls of Congress for thirty years. His quest for a leadership position is either a manifestation of very late blooming or incipient Alzheimers. One of those choices is definitely more likely than the other.

Alzheimers.

as i said the other day - those who condemned our marines based on insufficient evidence - i.e. all those who condemned our marines - are traitors, pure and simple.

moreover, their treachery cannot be redeemed even if what they presumed to be true is eventually shown to be true.

Good point, ex-dum...i mean, ex-dem (I can joke, because I grew up on Time Magazine--devoured every word, for years, until about the 2000 election or so--it's a wander I dint turn out a idoit).

Terrye,

I just thought of another possibility - the Dems have a Fantasy Leadership League going and Murtha was mumbling about his position on that team.

You can bet your bottom dollar ole Zarkawi would've supported Murtha.
