Our military has done everything that has been asked of them. It is time to bring them home."JOHN P. MURTHA, a Democratic representative from Pennsylvania.
"""Our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency," Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record) said Thursday. "They are united against U.S. forces and we have become a catalyst for violence. The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion."
As a Vietnam veteran and top Democrat on the House Appropriations defense subcommittee with close ties to many military officers, the 30-year Pennsylvania lawmaker carries more credibility with his colleagues on the issue than a number of other Democrats who have opposed the war from the start.
"Our military has accomplished its mission and done its duty," Murtha told reporters at news conference with a half-dozen American flags arrayed behind him.
"It's time to bring them home," he said.*****
