Jack Murtha, the Left's new attention junkie

I'm pretty much done respecting Jack Murtha. Principled dissent is one thing. Sedition is something else.

Murtha seems to love the attention he gets from the Left these days. Aside from his recent remarks advising Americans not to serve their country in the military, he's now openly schmoozing with one of the most despicable groups inthe pantheon of the anti-American Left.

Murtha took the time to do a `meet n' greet' on Jan. 5 with representatives of Code Pink.

Code Pink's website currently shows Murtha with his arms around Gael Murphy, the organization's co-founder, and Allison Yorra, its Washington coordinator. Murphy was one of the protesters arrested for disrupting the 2004 Republican National Convention.

In case anyone here doesn't know whom Code Pink is, they are the group that has championed military deserters, shilled for Venezuelan dictator (and anti-Semite) Hugo Chavez, traipsed around the Jordan-Iraq border last year condemning America, prayed for the "people of Fallujah," doled out $600,000 in aid to what they openly call "the other side" in Iraq and are planning a New Year's vacation to Cuba in solidarity with the Castro regime.

Code Pink was founded by 4 experienced activists and hardcore Communists - Jodie Evans, Medea Benjamin, Diane Wilson, and a radical Wiccan activist calling herself Starhawk. Ms. Evans is the nominal leader of the organization, which works closely with Medea Benjamin's group Global Exchange, which in turn maintains strong ties to the Communist Workers World Party (WWP). Code Pink also works hand-in-hand with United For Peace and Justice, whose leader Leslie Cagan is a longtime devotee of Fidel Castro and the Socialist Party USA.

Code Pink, at a mock war crimes tribunal in Istanbul June 27, signed a declaration that the Iraqi insurgency "deserved the support of people everywhere who care for justice and freedom." The document also rejected as illegitimate any democratic government left behind in Iraq.

They are also the chief protagonists and organizers of the obscene protests aimed at tormenting and mocking wounded troops at Walter Reed Hospital.

And of course they are the chief sponsors of Cindy Sheehan, also a noted anti-Semite, among her other accomplishments.

These are the people Murtha has hooked up with.

I would have expected it from the Leftists predominant in the Democratic party, but not from anyone who has actually risked his life to serve his country.

Any decent person would have thrown these traitors out of his or her office, head first.
