    Six of them have been acquitted. Does Murtha owe them and apology?

    Yes he does. And they owe an apology to the dead people.

    Do the people of California owe an apology to O.J. Simpson?

    Murtha won't apologize ... grumpy old fuck.
  5. The most recent acquittal was someone who was charged with improper reporting, not the actual murders.

    If anything, this case shows how difficult it is to prosecute servicemen who kill civilians in times of war. If you think the acquittals vindicate the Marines' slaughter of women and children (almost certainly out of retribution), I would strongly disagree with you.

    John Murtha should apologize to American taxpayers --- for stealing their money in the form of the salary he's been getting for being a useless congressman for at least the past 20 of his 34 years in the house of representative.

    He was once an effective legislator then at some point he turned into the Democrat's version of Strom Thurmond -- a useless old crank who wins elections because of name recognition and the strength of the machine that he has in place within his district.

    Then what the fuck good is an acquittal, if you and others want to keep saying they're guilty?

    They get to walk the streets free men. That should be plenty "good" enough, regardless of what I or anyone else on here thinks.
