It looks like Murtha is wanting the shooting of Iraqis dealt with right:
"Who covered it up, why did they cover it up, why did they wait so long?" Murtha said on "This Week" on ABC. "We don't know how far it goes. It goes right up the chain of command."
This echoes of Abu Gharib. We all know it wasn't some isolated incident of soldiers acting out of line. There had to be people at the top of the chain on down involved in this. When we hear reports of the exact same kind of abuse happening there as in Gitmo then there definitely is something bigger.
"I will not excuse murder, and this is what happened," Murtha said. "This investigation should have been over two or three weeks afterward and it should have been made public and people should have been held responsible for it."
Of course the military hoped no one would ever know. We are now investigating something that happened six months ago. The only reason it is being investigated is because Murtha brought it up and is a very credible source.
"This is the kind of war you have to win the hearts and minds of the people," he said. "And we're set back every time something like this happens. This is worse than Abu Ghraib."
That is it right there. Bush says that we need a "free and democratic Iraq" to help us win the war on terror. Well it does not matter one bit if they are free and democratic or not. If we treat their citizens like some expendable trash then they will hate us and end up building to a point to become a serious foe in the future. This is proof of how Bush has indeed made us LESS safe in the war on terror.
