So now he can't duck the hard questions.

A criminal defense attorney for a Marine under investigation in the Haditha killings says he will call a senior Democratic congressman as a trial witness, if his client is charged, to find out who told the lawmaker that U.S. troops are guilty of cold-blooded murder.

Murtha was the one Congressman to issue public statements on Haditha, both claiming that guilt wasn't in question, and alleging a coverup. He claimed inside knowledge, which strangely, onley he seems to posses.

Col. Dave Lapan, a spokesman at Marine Corps headquarters at the Pentagon, said Mr. Murtha was one of eight senior House members and senators briefed by Gen. Hagee in May on the investigation. "I don't know what he told them," Col. Lapan said.

and the other seven seem to be complicit in silence, if you believe Murtha. I don't actually. I think he recieved a general briefing with the others, then RAN to a camera to wildly exaggerate and distort what he was told. In a courts martial, he's bound by the same laws as everyone else. He can be charged with purjury, if he can not prove his claims. Ironic that the democrat who hoped to hitch his wagon to a war crimes star, may end up in prison because he got tripped up in his own distoted lies. He's not able to claim he was just claiming that it was his opinion, not when there's a ream of film showing him making his claims of inside knowledge. The Marines already know what he is, it's time everyone else can see just how low a snake he is.

Drudge.
