Just whose interests does John Murtha represent?

The Council on American-Islamic relations seems to think he does a bang-up job in representing their interests!
2005 Representative Murtha supported the interests of the Council on American-Islamic Relations 100 percent in 2005.
..The question is, are the interests of CAIR in line with the interests of Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District??
The conviction of a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) state operative is but the latest apparent link between that Islamist organization and Islamist terrorism. On April 13, 2005, Ghassan Elashi, founder of the group's Texas chapter (CAIR-Texas) – as well as longtime associate of CAIR's top leadership and beneficiary of CAIR fundraising and support – was convicted of laundering money for Islamic terrorist organizations from November 1995 through April 2001.

Dating back to the early 1990s, Elashi had close ties to CAIR's leaders
Bassam Khafagi, Imam Siraj Wahaj, and Randall Todd "Ismail" Royer, former civil rights coordinator and communications specialist for the "Muslim civil rights group."

And there's more. Read the whole thing here. Not to mention that Jack Murtha is the darling of Code Pink, who just happened to send over $600,000 worth of aid and comfort to our enemies
in Fallujah--the same folks who just happened to be shooting at soldiers, many, I would guess, who hailed from Murtha's district.

CAIR? Code Pink? Do the interests of these organizations really represent the interests of Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District, or even of the United States itself?

So I ask again, just whose interests is Congressman John P. Murtha really serving?
