What a frickin' . . .

I don't care if he is a Marine or what decorations he has, you just don't say this. Way to boost their morale, Rep. Murtha.

Murtha Says Army Is 'Broken, Worn Out'

Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year, and the Army is "broken, worn out" and may not be able to meet future military threats to the country's security, Rep. John Murtha said.

. . . "I predict he'll make it look like we're staying the course," Murtha said, referring to Bush. "Staying the course is not a policy."

Murtha, 73, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, expressed pessimism about Iraq's stability and said the Iraqis know who the insurgents are, but don't always share that information with U.S. troops. He said a civil war is likely because of ongoing factionalism among Sunni Arabs, and Kurds and Shiites.

Excuse me, but WTF??? Is he getting talking points from David Gergen or Brent Scowcroft? And is this how the Democrats think it's best to lead the opinion of the American people? Holy tamales.
