It's been a failure wrapped in lies, but...

It's time I withdrew right away.

Congressman Murtha has close ties to many top Pentagon officials as the senior Democrat on the powerful House Appropriations defense subcommittee. In emotional remarks to reporters in Washington, the Congressman said it is time to bring U.S. troops home. America's military has accomplished its mission, he said, and its duty is done.

Mr. Murtha said U.S. troops have become a catalyst for violence as the primary targets of insurgents in Iraq who are united against American forces. The war is not going as advertised, he said, calling it a flawed policy wrapped in illusion.
