Congressman John Murtha finally got around to taking a call from the father of one of the accused Marines in the so-called Haditha Massacre. The Marine is Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt and his father, Darryl Sharatt, made 53 phone calls over 18 months, before getting a return call. Mr. Sharrat is a resident of Congressman Murtha’s district. That’s right. Murtha is his congressional representative.
Darryl got emotional talking about how his son’s desire to be a career Marine had been ruined. He wants Murtha to be held accountable but he’s realistic about the chances of an official reprimand from Congress (ed. note: that he so richly deserves). His frustration is understandable,
An investigating officer in the case against a U.S. Marine accused of murdering civilians in Haditha, Iraq, has recommended that charges against him be dropped, concluding that the government’s allegations that the Marine executed a group of men are “unsupported and incredible.”
Bruce McQuain from QandO was with us and added some great perspective and observations.
