Murtha: Withdraw From Iraq NOW

Representative John Murtha (D-PA), Vietnam combat veteran, retired Colonel (Marine Corps Reserve), top Democrat on the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee:
"The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion. The American public is way ahead of us. The United States and coalition troops have done all they can in Iraq, but it is time for a change in direction. Our military is suffering. The future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf Region."
