James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal says it’s time for Congressman Jack Murtha to apologize to the Haditha Marines for his false charges.
This was the incident in which Rep. John Murtha accused the Marines of killing Iraqis “in cold blood”–a charge, as we noted in May 2006, that was self-contradictory. In November ScrippsNews reported that Cpl. Sharratt’s parents were “enraged” with Murtha, who is their congressman. Perhaps it’s time for him to apologize.
