Sleazy Republican Operative Guns For Murtha
It wasn't long ago Murtha was one of those Democrats the Republicans loved to love. Now sleazy Ken Mehlman is using a retracted story to attack Murtha, whom he says "who claims America is more dangerous than Iran and North Korea." From a post on Think Progress:

Mehlman is referencing a 6/25/06 story in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, which reported that Murtha said he believed the “American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran.”

Three days later, the paper retracted the report. Murtha was actually citing an international public opinion poll, not expressing his own views. But why let facts get in the way of a perfectly good smear?

Oddly, the story can no longer be found on the paper's site. Neither can the retraction. I searched Murtha on the Sun-Sentinel site and only this story, "Squad members threatened to kill me, soldier testifies" from The Washington Post comes up.
