Murtha: Wrong again.

John P. Murtha couldn't be on the right side of a situation if he kept on walking in circles...Murtha's own website states that recruitment is down "...even as our military has lowered its standards." In his zeal to burnish his leftist antiwar credentials, so as to cash in on his newfound notoriety, Murtha has not missed an opportunity to slam the military at every turn, often using outright lies to meet his ends.

Enter the Washington Post:

Army Ends Best Recruit Year

Since 1997

WASHINGTON -- The Army is ending its best recruiting year since 1997 and expecting similar success in 2007, despite the weight of grim war news from Iraq, Army Secretary Francis Harvey said Thursday.

In an Associated Press interview, Harvey said the Army will enlist its 80,000th soldier on Friday, reaching its goal for the year with eight days to spare. That is a considerable turnaround from last year when the Army missed its target for the first time since 1999 and by the widest margin in more than two decades.

But one wouldn't know that by talking with Murtha, who continues to this day hellbent on his defeatist diatribes.

Which leads me to repeat the question we at MMG ask again and again: Just whose interests does Jack Murtha represent?
