Rep. Murtha Says Army Is 'Broken, Worn Out'

"Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq' within a year, and the Army is "broken, worn out" and may not be able to meet future military threats to the country's security, Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record) said."

He then went on to say: "I predict he'll make it look like we're staying the course," Murtha said, referring to Bush. "Staying the course is not a policy."

Embedded Reporter Says Bush Lied in Speech Yesterday About Iraqi Security Forces

"Yesterday, President Bush claimed that Iraqi security forces “primarily led” the assault on the city of Tal Afar."

But the TIME reporter said "I was in that battle from the very beginning to the very end. I was with Iraqi units right there on the front line as they were battling with al Qaeda. They were not leading. They were being led by the U.S. green beret special forces with them."

True leaders willing to speak the truth regardless of personal consequences.
