I've been offline much of the weekend--a healthy thing every once in a while. The Haditha story continues to unfold. Allah Pundit is on top of all the latest developments, blog coverage of a possible "hoax," Dem exploitation, new Marine revelations, etc. Start here. Continue here.

Over to you, Jack Murtha.
I noted last month the 18-page report recommending that all charges against Lance Corporal Justin Sharratt in the Haditha case be dropped. Now, it's official: Murder charges against a US Marine accused of killing three Iraqi civilians during an alleged massacre in Haditha two years ago have been dropped, the military said on Thursday. A... Read More
Hold the line.
Hot Air's Bryan Preston dialed up Rep. John Murtha's office to ask about his slander of the Marines who have had charges dropped against them in the Haditha case. Listen here.
Hello, Jack?
Following up on another Haditha Marine slandered by Rep. John Murtha: Washington Post coverage here: "What occurred in house 1 and house 2 are tragedies," Ware wrote. "The photographs of the victims are heart wrenching, and the desir
Going down.
Update: Charges dropped against another Haditha Marine *** The troop-smearer can't hide from Jason Mattera of Young America's Foundation, teaming up with Hot Air TV, who asks the Democrat congressman whether he will apologize to the exonerated Haditha Marines: You can just hear Rep. John Murtha's relief as the elevator doors close. Note, also, how... Read More
Paging Jack Murtha.
Via Allahpundit, here's the latest on the Haditha Marines. I recommend everyone e-mail and fax this North County Times story to John Murtha ASAP: A Marine Corps official has recommended that murder charges be dismissed against a Camp Pendleton squad leader accused in the deaths of 17 civilians killed in the Iraqi city of Haditha...

The real defining atrocity.
You won't hear about this from John Murtha, but you'll read it first on the Internet. Nathaniel Helms at Defend our Marines has an exclusive report on the battle in Haditha that the media ignored: Buried in the mountain of exhibits attached to the once secret Haditha, Iraq murder inquiry prepared by US Army Maj....

Paging John Murtha...
Just in: John Murtha was, as they say, unavailable for comment. But we won't let him rest. More via Reuters: Allahpundit: "Exit question: If the charges against [Frank] Wuterich end up being dismissed too, is it time to revisit a House censure for Murtha? *** Flashback: September 2007...Jason Mattera corners cut-and-run Murtha o
Guilty.
In the wake of the dismissal of charges against Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum, Gary at Let Freedom Ring makes the case for indicting John Murtha. An excerpt: Let’s highlight that conflict between rep. Murtha and the Marine Corps spokesman because it highlights extremely important information. If Gen. Hagee did indeed brief Rep. Murtha on May... Read More
(Graphic via Defend Our Marines) Paging John Murtha: Haditha Marine Lt. Andrew Grayson found not guilty on all counts.

And then there were two. (Photo image source:
On June 5, you'll recall, Marine Lt. Andrew Grayson was found not guilty on all counts in the Haditha case. Charges were dropped against five other Haditha Marines. Two await trial: Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani and SSgt. Frank Wuterich. A hearing is scheduled tomorrow morning in Lt. Col. Chessani's case. The LATimes reported today that... Read More

Benedict, Ephialtes, and John.
Apropros of the latest Haditha case dismissal this afternoon, Modern Conservative puts John Murtha in his place.
Culture of impunity.
(Photoshop: Sanctuary) My syndicated column today recounts how the Haditha smear merchants from John Murtha to the NYSlimes to the world media hanged the Marines before a single formal charge had been filed. (And I know I don't have to worry about the AP quoting from it, because the MSM doesn't want you to remember... Read More
Make a difference.
I blogged about Bill Russell last fall (see here). It's time for a re-introduction. He's an Army vet, 9/11 survivor, and small business owner who is challenging smear merchant/corruptocrat Rep. John Murtha. I saw Russell at the fantastic Pennsylvania Leadership Conference last month (where the photo above was snapped). He is a staunch conservative, a... Read More
From prosecution to persecution.
The legal nightmare continues for Haditha Marine Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani. David Harsanyi reports on the prosecution's appeal of the dismissal of charges against Lt. Col. Chessani. Gary Gross has more and notes: The Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Lt. Col. Chessani, posts the notice of appeal and blasts the decision: Richard Thompson,... Read More
My syndicated column today spotlights the upstart candidacy of Republican newcomer Bill Russell, who is challenging corruptocrat John Murtha in Pennsylvania. I've been writing about Bill since last fall and told you about seeing him last month at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, where he was warmly received by the conservative grass-roots. Last week's second quarter... Read More
Latest to donate: Fred Thompson!
Momentum continues to build for GOP upstart Bill Russell, who is generating conservative grass-roots buzz and cash flow for his campaign to unseat entrenched, troop-smearing corruptocrat Jack Murtha. I told you last month about Russell's impressive fund-raising feat in the second quarter--out-raising the pork king Murtha 6 to 1 despite being unable to actively campaign... Read More
Calling the Russell brigade.
Add this to the growing list of reasons you should be doing everything in your power to support John "In Cold Blood" Murtha's GOP upstart challenger, Bill Russell. Via WaPo, we learn that the Democrat porkmeister intervened for a law-breaking Pennsylvania company convicted of selling military equiment parts illegally: Rep. John P. Murtha, the Pennsylvania...

Excellent question from David Harsanyi. Har: Commenter magicarb's answer... "Right after Murtha does. (And probably using the same speech.)"
This won't be on the front page of the NYTimes. Justice for former US Marine Jose Luis Nazario. More at Defend Our Marines and Blackfive.
Cold-blooded slander.
Good: Murtha won't talk. But his upstart GOP opponent wil
I had prayed before the election that I wouldn't have to pay one more iota of attention to the pork-filled, cut-and-run smear merchant John Murtha. Our prayers, alas, were not answered. Now, this corruptocrat is trying to hide from justice in the Haditha slander lawsuits: A Marine who sued U.S. Rep. John Murtha for defamation... Read More
John Murtha's big, fat mouth is still wreaking havoc on the lives of the Haditha Marines he defamed. But the Marines keep winning in court. Yesterday's good news from the Thomas More Law Center, which has vigorously defended the accused Marines: Gary Gross and Jim Hoft have full coverage -- coverage you won't find in... Read More
Sufficient time has passed since John Murtha's death to reckon with his true record. No tears for the wreckage, poison, and damage to the public trust he left behind. Latest news: There is a movement to install Murtha's wife in the seat. Given the late congressman's share-the-pork-with-friends-and-family proclivities, this is a very bad idea for... Read More
Ugly picture, ugly picture, ha ha ha! That deranged talking head who called me a "big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick” and mocked my ethnic maiden name is suddenly concerned with public decorum. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has the pathetic video of cable clown Keith Olbermann naming me "worst person in the... Read More
"Eight Marines were charged. Seven have been cleared as the facts have been revealed. Now one more trial remains." -- Defend Our Marines Welcome to 2012. The headlines will be awash in presidential politics this week, but I want to make sure you take note of the trial of SSgt Frank D. Wuterich set to... Read More
I told you on Monday about the opening of SSgt Frank D. Wuterich's trial this week in connection to an alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians in the village of Haditha in 2005. Seven have been exonerated. Wuterich is the last Haditha Marine standing. Here's the very latest on the proceedings. SSgt Wuterich's defense team succeeded... Read More
At the beginning of the month, I told you about the trial of SSgt Frank D. Wuterich -- the last of the Marines charged in connection to an alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians in the village of Haditha in 2005.
