Murderous Acts Need No Aggrandizement

General briefed Murtha after murder comment, Corp says
The head of the U.S. Marine Corps briefed Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record) on the Haditha case after the vocal war critic publicly said Marines had killed innocent civilians in that Iraqi city, the Corps said on Thursday.
…Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat, is being sued by one of the accused Marines for libel. He had told The Philadelphia Inquirer that Gen. Michael Hagee had given him the information on which he based his charge that Marines killed innocent civilians.
But a spokesman for the Marine Corps said Hagee briefed Murtha on May 24 about Haditha. Murtha had made comments on the case as early as May 17.

A Swill salute to the Gateway Pundit.

    I think the Marine’s defense strategy is pretty stereotypical. If you don’t have a case, sue everyone and make a lot of confusion in public.
    Let’s hope that the panel in the court martial isn’t affected by this pre-trial publicity and properly condemns any guilty Marines.

  2. And exonerates the innocent.

    If there are any. I’m very skeptical at this point.
