The remarks of Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) regarding the Haditha incident ["Death Toll Rises in Haditha Attack, GOP (?) Leader Says," news story, May 20]. Mr. Murtha said, "Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood." Well, Rep. Murtha – which is it? Overreaction or cold blood? Even you cannot have it both ways, try as you might.

Here’s a suggestion, Rep. Murtha – why don’t you zip your pie hole shut until the INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETE? And if or until proper adjudication has taken place?

Just as a reminder, Rep. Murtha, people in this country are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Blathering by an ignorant and biased public person such as yourself is neither proof nor grounds for conviction.

Your agenda is well known, sir. Add to that the fact that, like your pal John F. Kerry, your military bona fides are not necessarily as they are advertised, and your verbal posturing moves into the area of giving “aid and comfort” to an enemy who is capable of reading our newspapers and misconstruing your remarks as being an accurate representation of sane and intelligent people in our country.

Last night on CNN they were flogging the daylights out of this story, but even CNN had to admit that in their interview with the surviving children of Haditha, the stories were amazingly consistent (as in rehearsed?) and that one of the children opined that she didn’t want to get out of bed and covered her ears because she knew the bomb was coming! So clearly, the investigation needs to run its course before you, or anyone else, rushes to judgment.

In other words, Rep. Murtha – shut the hell up!
