Murtha: exercise free speech - don't join

He has a every right to speak, and comes from a 37 year background in the Marines. But the man acts as if there was no threat from Iraq, nor any lingering threat from AQ for that matter:

"No," replied Murtha of Pennsylvania, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives subcommittee that oversees defense spending and one of his party's leading spokesmen on military issues.
Note to John- the US military isn't just fighting in Iraq. Perhaps he can enlighten us on our Bosnia/Kosovo exit strategy.

Peter Pace seems concerned. His concern would seem to me well founded.
