We just got a call from Australia the other day from LC Brendan, telling me that I might want to make sure that I still had some sparkly in the fridge, because he had some excellent news to share with me:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — An investigating officer has recommended that the Marine at the center of the biggest prosecution of U.S. troops in the Iraq war should not stand trial on murder charges, a defense attorney said Thursday.

Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, 27, of Meriden, Conn., is charged with the unpremeditated murder of 17 Iraqis in Haditha in 2005. The former squad leader allegedly directed his Marines in an assault that left 24 men, women and children dead.

I wish I could say that I were surprised by this development, but I really can’t. From day one or, at the very least, from the time that LCs and IBs Kit and Heidi were kind enough to share what they’d learned with me (which was a lot. They’ve both been working their arses off on this whole bogus Stalinist show trial), I knew that the whole case was rotten.

It came to be at a time when the MSM were publishing frivolous and unsubstantiated claims of abuses and crimes by our troops on a daily basis, it relied almost entirely upon wildly contradictory eyewitness testimonies from, shall we say, sources with dubious affiliations and loyalties, the prosecution was stonewalling any attempts by the defense counsel to examine the evidence etc. etc., and all that coupled with an obvious need on the part of the Administration to “prove to the world” how Good We Are™, even if it meant stringing up a few innocents in a blatant human sacrifice ritual made me reach the conclusion that something stunk to high heavens here and that the whole “case” would fall apart.

If justice worked, that is, which was my only real worry. Particularly as the charges fell apart and were thrown out one by one, leaving the Stalinists on the prosecution team with only one scalp to hunt for, that of SSGT Wuterich. I know how desperate coyotes will get when they’re starving and rapidly running out of prospective dinners, so I was a bit worried that they’d end up getting him as a consolation prize, justice be damned.

Looks like that’s not going to be the case, provided that the Corps follows recommendations, of course. However, even if they DO follow this recommendation, SSGT Wuterich isn’t quite out of the woods yet:

Lt. Col. Paul Ware recommended that Wuterich should be tried for the lesser offense of negligent homicide in the deaths of five children and two women, said Neal Puckett, Wuterich’s attorney.

This too is bullshit. He shouldn’t be charged with a damn thing. Furthermore, the Corps owe him AND the rest of the innocently accused one HECK of a compensation package for dragging them and their families through this nightmare. Lives and reputations have been destroyed, finances wiped out and families torn to shreds because of this desperate attempt to create a blood sacrifice to World Opinion™, and somebody needs to fucking pay for that. Not that any amount of compensation can fully restore what has been done to these servicemen, the time wasted alone is time they’ll never have back, but in order to teach the prosecution vultures a lesson and maybe make them think twice in the future before they whip out the knives and start leading their human sacrifices to the altar.

And MOST of all, Jack Murthafucker needs to be strung up from the nearest utility post, figuratively speaking, if we can find one strong enough to support his bloated, corrupt, slandering carcass.

How about those “cold-blooded killers” NOW, Murthafucker, you buddy-fucking, honorless, worthless waste of DNA?

What goes around comes around, Jack. COUNT on it. Not only have you done immeasurable damage to the reputation of those innocents; your ridiculous, unsubstantiated shameful comments have further encouraged our enemies, enemies responsible for the killing of our countrymen. Their blood is on YOUR paws, MAGGOT! “Aid and comfort”, anyone?

    Karma’s a bitch, Murtha. The day will come, soon I pray, when the Corp will decide enough is enough. It is time for ALL men and women who have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, regardless of the Branch, to DO JUST THAT! It matters not your personal political views, you swore to protect this nation. Foreign, and domestic. REMEMBER YOUR OATH OF ENLISTMENT!

    While Murtha is worse than a piece of infected smegma, he ain’t dumb enough to shout ALL of his treasonous venom outside of his ‘employer’s’ realm. That gives him coverage from lawsuits, except SSGT Wuterich’s (GREAT legal team there!)

    Murtha, beyond being a worthless example of cowardly, back-stabbing ass-kisser, is also the only living example of an ‘ex-Marine’. I wouldn’t give a dipilated rodents putrefied hindquarters if some of his ‘ex-’ brothers give him a one-way ride UP in an airplane.

    This too is bullshit. He shouldn’t be charged with a damn thing.

    Then why the recommendation he be charged with Negligent Homicide? Apparently, they felt that while there wasn’t enough legal evidence to support murder charges, there must be enough to support holding a trial for negligent homicide.

    I have a suggestion: why not hold off judgment until the trial has been concluded? I said it way back then, and I continue to say it today.

    I can’t help it if Murtha spoke out of turn, or was 0 - 100 percent wrong. So far in this particular case, anyone with an opinion on innocence or guilt is somewhere in that same 0 - 100 percent range.

    Whether he is innocent or guilty, SSGT Wuterich deserves withholding of judgment until he has had a trial — and at this point he NEEDS to have a trial.

    I know that most of you would rather he NOT have a trial, but frankly, since he has been so publicly accused, it is better that he does — if for nothing more than to clear his name. I will give you an example:

    Say you have been accused by someone of killing your child. There is some circumstantial evidence that could possibly point towards your guilt. The case is widely publicized, and everyone seems to know the story.

    But you are never charged with the crime. The allegations are out there, and everywhere you go, people recognize you and wonder: did you kill your kid?

    Obviously, I am thinking about Jon Benet Ramsey’s parents. IF someone had been tried in that family and found innocent, then that person would have been cleared. But as it stands now, there is still speculation that one or both of the parents killed the child, or covered up for the brother.

    Nobody wants our military personnel to be guilty of anything, just as we wouldn’t want members of our family or friends to be guilty of wrongdoing. It is uncomfortable enough for there to even be an accusation leveled.

    It doesn’t advance the cause of any side of the political spectrum for our military personnel to be found guilty of anything, and I think it is a faulty assumption that there is anyone who wants the allegations in this story to be true.

    OhMyDamn…

    I agree with DJ (someone catch me).

    In terms of defending their collective honor (and setting up to sue Murtha for EVERY DIME of bribe money he has, since he neglected to restrict his slanderous statements to the senate floor) - this is panning out in the best POSSIBLE way:

    Charges Dropped
    Charges Dropped
    Charges Dropped
    One Defendant Left … Charges Lessened … Trial…

    Exoneration.

    Once that happens, there will be NO WAY for ANYONE to cast doubt on the innocence of those marines.

    Murtha didn’t say “in my opinion” or “I think” or “it looks like” or “it seems to me.”

    Murtha said “they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”
    …and he forgot to say it from the “no-personal-responsibility-zone” that is the senate floor.

    Just think of the pork-funding he’ll have to skim - the bribes he’ll have to take - to recover financially from this. :em69:

    Let it ride.

    When DJ is right, though it’s as rare as a perfect diamond, he’s absolutely right–about the fact that these soldiers need their names properly cleared, that is. That’s of course also the reason Murthafucker’s bloviating was and remains so very very offensive. It was wrong that they were ever accused, but now that they have been they must be cleared. Never a “Semper Fi” to Murthafucker, always “Sic semper tyrannis” to him. God speed and a quick acquittal to the rest of the Marines who did the rough work for lady liberty in Haditha.

    Before anyone gets bent outa shape, yes, it’s sad women and kids got killed–that’s why war is tragic. Whatever you may say about reasons for opening up the Iraq theater of operations in the GWOT, the one thing no one can dispute is that if radical islamists and Saddamscum had kept to themselves and kept the people-shredding to a dull roar, we wouldn’ta hada gone in there. Further, if Iran and Syria were not such destabilizing forces in the region, Iraq would have relatively little strategic significance. Haditha wouldn’t have happened had Iraqi civilians not harbored AQII and other terrorist groups. The evil actors are to blame for innocent deaths in war, because they bring the fire down. It’s up to them to behave themselves, it’s not up to us to have perfect surgical aim when we have to dust off a bunch of ticks.

    But then again, it was justifiable that millions of those evil allies of ours were slaughtered in Vietnam. Communism works just fine for those agricultural countries. Mold and insect ridden crops are mighty tasty for the locals as long as the government makes its $$ off the product to redistribute.

    Sorry to get off track there…I’m just trying to grasp this logic.

    Following your logic too, it’s alright then that Murtha slandered these guys before they were even tried. No condemnation there. Nope.

    To all those who shall read this; Greetings.

    Know ye that the special trust and bond of brotherhood between Marines has forever been the essence of our esprit de corps.

    Know ye that Marines always have and always will watch out for each other from the day we first wear the eagle, globe, and anchor; until we have drawn our last breath, and our hearts lay forever still.

    Know ye that it is a bond forged in centuries of blood, sweat and tears wherever we have marched.

    Know ye that being forged in such fires is not a trivial matter, and is not forgotten easily.

    Know ye that while this bond supports and encourages the noblest of warrior virtue, it breeds the opposite if betrayed.

    Let it be known that Colonel Murtha, USMC has so betrayed this bond. He has, for personal gain amongst the lowest of our nation, and in standing with his disreputable new colleagues, undermined the mission that the United States Marine Corps have been ordered to carry out. He has also not only failed to speak up for his brothers dying in foreign lands, he has now gone so far as to condemn them out of hand. He has betrayed his brothers to their enemies, foreign and domestic. He has committed the ultimate sin amongst Marines, he has put himself before the Corps.

    Therefore, let it be known to all who may read these words that Colonel Murtha, USMC is disavowed, and is brother to this Marine no more.

    So be it, from this day forward, until the end of the Corps.

    Semper Fidelis,
    ASM826
    Sgt. USMC

    Dave, are you actually comparing the abduction/murder of a child in her home in a non war zone to this?

    Did you miss the point?

    These guys have been publicly accused of crimes and attrocities. They have been plastered all over the press, and by NOT charging them doesn’t actually clear them in the eyes of the public.

    I could have given any crime as an example. I picked the Jon Benet Ramsey example because even after all these years, there is still a cloud over the parents — even though one of them is dead now.

    The sad fact in this country is that once someone has been accused of a sensational crime, and their names plastered all over the media, the ONLY real way to clear them is through a public trial.

    Of course there are some exceptions to even that: Look at OJ Simpson.

    The reason why there are people who still see cases like this as “unresolved” is that while a crime may have been committed, it isn’t quite as easy to charge someone for that crime due to a lack of evidence. It doesn’t make them innocent, it only means that there isn’t enough evidence to prove they did it beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Following your logic too, it’s alright then that Murtha slandered these guys before they were even tried. No condemnation there. Nope.

    Did I say it was alright? Why must you assume that just because someone else says something — that I must automatically approve of or ‘authorize’ his saying it?

    I know this is a tough concept for a lot of Conservatives, but where the Republican Party is made up of a narrow band of like-thinkers, the Democratic Party is made up of a wide-spectrum of groups that don’t always see eye-to-eye on a lot of things.

    I have long insisted that the Democratic Party is a lot like trying to herd cats. Will Rogers summed it up very well:

    I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.

    I cannot be responsible for what someone else says. I agree or disagree with members of my own party almost as much as I do with stuff I read here.

    If this is true, why have so many Democrats gleefully carried on about every accusation, credible or not.

    Define “so many”.

    And what is your definition of “gleefully”?

    There are accusations out there. There are people here talking about them, just as there are “so many” democrats “gleefully” talking about them.

    People here are jumping to as many conclusions as to what DIDN’T happen as there are people jumping to conclusions at to what DID happen.

    I am reading more here about this entire incident than I am anywhere else, so if there is anyone ‘gleefully’ talking about this, it would be here.

    It most certainly is used to advance the cause of the America-is-wrong leftist crowd and the out-of-Iraq-now bunch. If you deny that, you are blind, stupid, or just willfully ignorant.

    Advance a cause? If true, it points out where the policies of this administration (or lack thereof) have failed, but it doesn’t “benefit” anyone. It is hardly the desire of anyone for these charges to be true.

    it relied almost entirely upon wildly contradictory eyewitness testimonies from, shall we say, sources with dubious affiliations and loyalties,

    Um, do you mean TRAITORS, Sire?

    And BC, thanks for the blast from the past via Hanover Fist. That reminded me that I have to download The Mob Rules by Ronny James Dio. Maybe it’s somewhere else in the movie, but I seem to remember Sternn getting chased down to the soothing sounds of RJ’s guitar, not the song that’s actually playing in the clip. Not that it matters; for that matter, I need to get the DVD too.

    I have to agree that the sgt. should go on trial so that he can be finally cleared of all charges, thus clearing his and the other Marines’ good names, and in the process will hopefully, except among the very hard core far left ding-a-lings, put the slur against them to bed. As for Murtha, oh, don’t you worry my fellow rotties, the jerk from my home state, and if he is from my neck of the woods, that area will need to be fumigated to get rid of his nasty stench, will eventually get what’s coming to him. And the sooner he gets his well deserved just deserts the better I say. :em96:

    These guys have been publicly accused of crimes and attrocities. They have been plastered all over the press, and by NOT charging them doesn’t actually clear them in the eyes of the public.

    We’ll see if the media gives them the face time when they are cleared. The same face time they gave this asshole to spew his accusations. I do doubt that will happen with our MSM. Some people I know don’t even know that others have been exonerated. Just like the Duke boys. Ya didn’t see Al or Jesse there after the truth came out, but they sure had no problems shouting from the mountaintops with accusations.

    Advance a cause? If true, it points out where the policies of this administration (or lack thereof) have failed, but it doesn’t “benefit” anyone. It is hardly the desire of anyone for these charges to be true.

    According to who? I’m sure in your eyes, just like those evil Vietnamese that got murdered for the glorious virtues of communism, those poor Iraqis are missing out on rapes, dog attacks, amputations and shredders. Those “freedom fighters” from Al Caca, Iran, Syria agree with you 100%. The post right below this one by the way, shows exactly how common you Dems can really be. Leading into….

    Did I say it was alright? Why must you assume that just because someone else says something — that I must automatically approve of or ‘authorize’ his saying it?

    I know this is a tough concept for a lot of Conservatives, but where the Republican Party is made up of a narrow band of like-thinkers, the Democratic Party is made up of a wide-spectrum of groups that don’t always see eye-to-eye on a lot of things.

    You don’t see the type of condemnation for this jerk that you gave to Rush, Dave. Which you took out of context.

    Narrow band of like-thinkers? Are you kidding? Shit, there is evidence on this very site about the presidential nomination alone. Debbie S is another example. Glory hole guy was asked to step down. Your party gave Barney Frank a fucking medal!! Pass the man a fricken cigar…but only after Clinton is done with it as Ted Kennedy gives driving lessons over bridges!

    I would like to add I do recognize that Dems are different…there are lefties, there are liberals, there are traditional dems, etc. Same thing with those of us who label ourselves Republicans. I’d personally fit into the libertarian tripe when it comes to government and lead my own life with what I consider puts me as a conservative, PERSONALLY. But the Dems…please. I don’t have the time to beat a dead horse but I’m curious how many of those jerks have even read the Constitution or Declaration of Independence when it comes to them making God a four letter word.

    Idiots.

    But have a good weekend. I do hope you get well soon. I need to take a breather…I’m still shocked and disgusted at you poo-pooing all those deaths to communism in Vietnam.

    Murtha is a traitorous pig, and contrary to what DJ said above, he did openly and PUBLICLY accuse the marines of killing civilians in cold blood.

    “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood,” said Jack Murtha of Pennsylvania

    Murtha also lied about getting information from General Hagee prior to shooting off his big mouth.

    I hope he gets nailed to the wall for slandering these Marines.

    Look, I am NOT saying this is how I see things, I am just saying how the public perception is when these things play out. You can give all the fact time you want, but the damage has already been done. Until they have been cleared by a court, the perception will always be that they are guilty. It’s a sad fact, but that is how it is.

    I am not trying to be argumentative here, I just think you are misunderstanding what I am trying to say. If you want to clear these people — I mean really CLEAR these people, you have to let them have a trial — and they should insist upon it.

    A person accused will always be accused and by extention considered guilty to some degree or another until they have actually been tried and either aquitted or found guilty. The idea that a person is assumed innocent until proven guilty is a quaint idea, but never actually heeded. People make up their minds on just the minimal amount of information and very little short of aquittal will budge them from their prejudice.

    You have already made up your mind that these guys are innocent. There are others with the opposite view. NONE of you are working from an established and official set of facts other than what has been filtered down to you. You are working mainly from an emotional space where a set of personal variables determine whether there is guilt or innocence. NONE of it is admissable evidence one way or the other.

    I have always said from the beginning of this story, that we should wait and hold our judgment (good or bad) until it is all over. We can HOPE for the best — in this case their innocence.

    There is no need for a trial. This whole drama is an exercise in PC cover your ass. These Marines had a right to defend themselves, period. Yeah, it is a shame civilians died. Tough shit.

    Anyone who would willingly go to trial is crazy. These marines need nothing to exonerate them. They are presumed innocent until proven guilty. They did their duty.

    I think, upon reflection, that the statements of Murthaforker may well have been a violation of the law.

    I don’t remember the exact statute, but I believe from somewhere in Title 18 USC. The statements made by MurthaForker (…“Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood,” … amongst others) were as a result of information he received as a Member of Congress (an Official), that were not generally available to the public, and in part from an official investigation, and would serve to be prejudicial to the possibility of a fair and impartial trial for these men. This would be depriving the Soldiers involved of their Constitutionally Mandated Civil Rights under the Color of Authority.

    This whole drama is an exercise in PC cover your ass.

    MY ass? Unlike you, I haven’t passed judgment either way on this. But there are a lot of people — in the court of public opinion — who have passed judgment one way or the other, and UNLESS there is a trial, UNLESS these men can come out exonerated beyond the shadow of doubt, then there will always be those who will think they “got away with it”.

    Surely you understand what people are (in)capable of in the age of :30 second soundbytes. The words, “aquitted” hold a lot more weight than “accused” but “not charged”, because the “not charged” could be for a lack of evidence sufficient to bring a conviction.

    Like I said, it is the unfortunate state we find ourselves in today with instant media, and people leveling charges left and right. It’s sad, but it’s a reality.

    I don’t remember the exact statute, but I believe from somewhere in Title 18 USC.

    Well you can search it, but I doubt there is anything there. I don’t know that there was anything Murtha said that hadn’t already been put out to the media from one source or another. The story didn’t start with Murtha, he was just the highest ranking person who opened his yap with an opinion on it.

    And before you say it (I know someone will), a person does not have to preface everything he says with “in my opinion”.

    We just had a State Supreme Court ruling here in Washington that says it is alright for candidates to deliberately lie about each other. They just can’t show malace. (that would be our conservative court, BTW) It would be interesting to hear what our National Conservative Robes would have to say in a case like this. I am suspecting the outcome would be the same.

    You may be right, but when Murtha was spouting this crap on one of the Sunday shows, he was bragging that he had received inside briefings on the matter, not open source.

    Generally, there are two titles that can be considered criminal. That is Title 18 and Title 28. Neither is civil.

    Interestingly, Title 28 is the tax code, and it is where all of the drug crimes are located, because Nixon decided he would fight is War on Drugs by prosecuting them under tax code violations.

    I have to agree that you have a good point vis-a-vis whether it would be best for SSGT Wuterich to have the case proceed to acquittal, Deej, even though I’m positively convinced that it won’t matter a flying fuck in the “public opinion” of the MSM.

    The thing is: They shouldn’t have been charged in the first place. There never was any “there” there. All there was was a handful of unsubstantiated claims from various stringers, al-Qaeda sympathizers and, of course, the MSM who gladly swallow anything whole as long as it casts our nation and our forces in particular in a bad light.

    But once charges were filed, you can argue that it would be better in the long run for the charged to get their day in court. If it wasn’t for the fact that they’ve been spending those two years in jail waiting for that day for nothing, their families’ finances have been ruined and their reputations and careers destroyed, no matter what the outcome.

    Where are they going to get all of that back? Were it me, I’d gladly take the jaundiced eye of an unconvinced, knuckledragging public over losing all of that with absolutely no hope for redress.

    DJ,

    You seem to take the position that the courts are the be all and end all of everything. Sorry but that just ain’t so. Take OJ. He was acquitted in his criminal trial. Did public perception change? Not one whit. Those predisposed to believe him innocent continue to believe it. Those predisposed to believe him guilty continue to believe it.

    Those who witnessed the testimony and truly came to their own conclusion are the only ones who can be said to have been influenced by the trial. What percentage would you say they were? I’d be surprised by a percentage larger than 2 to 3 percent of the general public.

    These patriots deserve better than to have a member of Congress pronounce them guilty without trial. Having a congressman (why do I choke when referring to that piece of sh*t as a congressman?) pronounce them guilty prejudices the case. All charges should be dropped and the convening authority should state that it was Jackhole Murthaf*cker’s statement that made a trial impossible.

    Oh, I forgot. Liberals are never responsible for their own actions. As my favorite mythical military man (Col. Sherman T. Potter) would say: Horse hockey!

    To all those who shall read this; Greetings.

    Know ye that the special trust and bond of brotherhood between Marines has forever been the essence of our esprit de corps.

    Know ye that Marines always have and always will watch out for each other from the day we first wear the eagle, globe, and anchor; until we have drawn our last breath, and our hearts lay forever still.

    Know ye that it is a bond forged in centuries of blood, sweat and tears wherever we have marched.

    Know ye that being forged in such fires is not a trivial matter, and is not forgotten easily.

    Know ye that while this bond supports and encourages the noblest of warrior virtue, it breeds the opposite if betrayed.

    Let it be known that Colonel Murtha, USMC has so betrayed this bond. He has, for personal gain amongst the lowest of our nation, and in standing with his disreputable new colleagues, undermined the mission that the United States Marine Corps have been ordered to carry out. He has also not only failed to speak up for his brothers dying in foreign lands, he has now gone so far as to condemn them out of hand. He has betrayed his brothers to their enemies, foreign and domestic. He has committed the ultimate sin amongst Marines, he has put himself before the Corps.

    Therefore, let it be known to all who may read these words that Colonel Murtha, USMC is disavowed, and is brother to this Marine no more.

    So be it, from this day forward, until the end of the Corps.

    Semper Fidelis,
    ASM826
    Sgt. USMC

    LC 0311 crunchie

    Speaking of military atrocities a guy brought in a copy of the paper I work for from October 1945. The Japanese (referred to as Japs in the AP story) had admitted that cannibalism was allowed but only if the victim weren’t Japanese!

    I watch the History Channel. A LOT. Before cable came along I used to read a lot of books on WWII. I still read them but not quite as much now. I can’t remember every seeing anything on this.

    Anyone else ever run across this. I haven’t checked it out yet but I’m sure going to when I get the time. If you have let me know, I’d appreciate it.

    Whether he is innocent or guilty, SSGT Wuterich deserves withholding of judgment until he has had a trial

    And Murthfucker’s conviction and condemnation of him in absentia, before even the initial hearings started, denied him that right. The fact that you still will not admit this, let alone condemn it, tells us all where you *really* stand despite your self-righteous pretense of neutrality.

    Until they have been cleared by a court, the perception will always be that they are guilty.

    There you go again, holding the Almighty courts as the sole, final, and infallible arbiters of what is or is not true; no other person (except yourself) is allowed or qualified to reach any judgment.

    It was a court that acquitted OJ, and a court that convicted Dreyfus.

    The idea that a person is assumed innocent until proven guilty is a quaint idea, but never actually heeded.

    Well gee, I’m glad that you consider one of the most fundamental principles of our society’s legal tradition to be ‘quaint.’ Incidentally, who is supposed to uphold and defend that principle when all else fails? That’s right, your perfect Almighty courts.

    We just had a State Supreme Court ruling here in Washington that says it is alright for candidates to deliberately lie about each other. They just can’t show malace.

    First of all, it’s spelled ‘malice.’

    Leaving that aside, to falsely accuse someone (say, active duty armed service members) of a heinous crime (such as, say, ‘killing in cold blood’) constitutes defamation per se because the malice is obvious and inherent. IOW, Murthafucker *DID* show malice, you fatuous twit.

    the MSM who gladly swallow anything whole as long as it casts our nation and our forces in particular in a bad light.

    Not wanting to defend the MSM for its laziness, they do tend to gravitate towards the sensational, regardless of whether it makes the US look good, bad, or indifferent. If it bleeds, it leads. If it makes the Administration look bad — any administration — then it is going to be front page news.

    The thing is: They shouldn’t have been charged in the first place.

    Were they actually charged, or were they just being held for investigation? I thought they hadn’t actually been charged yet.

    Where are they going to get all of that back? Were it me, I’d gladly take the jaundiced eye of an unconvinced, knuckledragging public over losing all of that with absolutely no hope for redress.

    Have you thought about taking up a collection or starting a foundation?

    You seem to take the position that the courts are the be all and end all of everything. Sorry but that just ain’t so. Take OJ. He was acquitted in his criminal trial. Did public perception change? Not one whit. Those predisposed to believe him innocent continue to believe it. Those predisposed to believe him guilty continue to believe it.

    I mentioned that there was the “OJ Exception” already, and that was an anomaly. The majority of people did not and do not agree with the verdict on that one.

    Those who witnessed the testimony and truly came to their own conclusion are the only ones who can be said to have been influenced by the trial. What percentage would you say they were? I’d be surprised by a percentage larger than 2 to 3 percent of the general public.

    On the OJ trial? I doubt that you would find one in one hundred who didn’t think that OJ got away with murder — not even a few of the jurors.

    These patriots deserve better than to have a member of Congress pronounce them guilty without trial. Having a congressman (why do I choke when referring to that piece of sh*t as a congressman?) pronounce them guilty prejudices the case. All charges should be dropped and the convening authority should state that it was Jackhole Murthaf*cker’s statement that made a trial impossible.

    Really? Did Murtha’s comments convince YOU that they were guilty? How many of the 1,581 people who have commented at this site in the past year, or the 2,551 who have ever signed up at this site for an account were swayed by Jack Murtha into believing these guys were guilty?

    How many people in this country that never paid attention to Jack Murtha’s comments, and only heard the initial news broadcasts feel that these guys are guilty?

    I just went to my barometer of average public opinion to ask them what they think about all of this and got the answer I expected:

    “huh?”

    Who are my “barometer of average public opinion”?

    My roommate and his girl friend. They hear the news a few times a day — usually going in one ear and out the other. Sometimes something sticks, sometimes it doesn’t. They might catch an MSN headline on their stock browser homepage and be surprised about something.

    I call them average, because unlike most of you here, and me, they don’t spend too much time on the news or politics. The war in Iraq is an abstract thought with them, they don’t like the fact that there is a war going on, but they don’t understand the complexities enough to really have an informed opinion. They are just like every average person I’ve run across.

    I would say it bores them to tears, but that would take energy. They just don’t care.

    Oh, I forgot. Liberals are never responsible for their own actions. As my favorite mythical military man (Col. Sherman T. Potter) would say: Horse hockey!

    Tell that to Larry Craig (NOT Gay, ID)

    My favorite lately is “Horse Pussy”.

    I watch the History Channel. A LOT.

    Me too. In fact, I have asked Comcrap if they could only charge me for the History Channel since it is the only channel I watch except for Weeds on Showtime once a week.

    #67 by DJ Allyn, pretentious fuckwit extraordinaire:

    Oh, sorry. I type 130 words a minute, and sometimes I make a mistake

    Heck, we *all* make mistakes. Some of us correct them.

    For example, when misspellings occur, there is a spell check function here (which someone was kind enough to install) which points them out. There is also the possibility of, oh I don’t know, reviewing posts for errors before sending. Admittedly it’s not a perfect system, but it’s better than nothing.

    Then their are those who repeatedly make the same errors in spelling and usage even after they have been pointed out. At that point it’s not a typo, it’s a deficiency in literacy.

    Some people here occasionally try to correct factual errors - for example by admitting they were mistaken when someone is nice enough to provide the correct information. Sometimes, someone will - God Forbid - look up the correct information on their own initiative when challenged, saving others the burden of doing their homework for them. Then there are the folks who wouldn’t admit shit stinks if you dipped them head first in it.

    Such self-correction is part of the training of scientists, and in time it becomes almost second nature. Obviously this is not a universally recognized or practiced skill.

    — the biggest one, responding to people like you.

    And yet you do so. You masochist… :em93:

    Ooooh, two Latin words in one comment. I am impressed.

    Some of us actually took Latin, O ora de fimus.

    But can you prove MALICE?

    The entire point, you fatuous fuckwit, is that you don’t *HAVE* to prove malice; the accusation is malicious in itself. That’s what ‘per se‘ means, dickhead. Try talking to an attorney who actually has some expertise in this area, you might learn something.

    Or was he just repeating what he had heard from other sources?

    It doesn’t matter. He repeated it as fact. There is no way any reasonable person could have interpreted his claim as mere opinion. I suppose his attorney will try to use this as a point of defense, and it might actually work; but “I vas only follovink orters” doesn’t fly with me. A real Marine - hell, a real man - takes responsibility for his misdeeds.

    In order to prove malice, you have to show intent.

    See above. By definition, the malice in Murthafucker’s statement was inherent and obvious. This is why defamation per se is distinguished from ‘ordinary’ defamation.

    The classic examples of defamation per se are a) false accusation of a heinous crime, and b) false accusation of having a loathsome disease. (Attorneys being the clever critters they are, this is not an exhaustive list.)

    People say stupid shit all the time

    Yes, but when the ‘people’ are Congressmen making false and malicious accusations which could influence a court to convict citizens of charges that carry the death penalty, it’s not a trivial matter. (Well, maybe it is trivial to someone who thinks the massacre of two million innocent people is no big deal…)

    — I offer you as an example.

    Is that the best you can do? I used to make beer money spell checking papers for people like you who were too fucking stupid to do it themselves. (Mind you, this was before automatic spell check was a common convenience; heck, it was so long ago we wrote papers with actual pens.)

    No, I saw it. Were you somehow disappointed that I wasn’t as insulted or devastated by the comparison as you had hoped? If it’s really important to you I could fake it, but that’s not my style…

    I think I adequately explained that there is a difference between simply having a contrary opinion and overtly misstating facts. And yes, there is a point where a person can no longer claim to be simply mistaken or unaware of facts - at that point a contrary claim is, by definition, a lie.

    You’re entitled to see things differently, of course. But if you expect me to roll over the first time someone makes an invidious comparison, then I’m sorry to disappoint you. :em93:

    Last night at work, this thread was going through my mind. And I remembered Wil calling me Marine. While that would make me proud, I was AF. And I’m just as proud. In the AF we have certain jobs that earn berets like PJ, CCT, TACP, SF, and a few others. Some of us go places we, ahem, never went, and do shit “No Americans were involved in”. My job? I taught killing for a living, and if the shit got particularly personal it was my job to go out, look around, and say “if I was him, where would I be”. Then go find him and make him leave our ground crew and pilots alone in some unpleasant fashion. I was saying the Marines have the right to start the dance because they’re the ones first invited, in my eyes.

    Did Murtha’s comments convince YOU that they were guilty?

    Doesn’t matter. While Murthaf*cker isn’t in the line of command he IS a member of Congress, would that it were otherwise. What he did was commit undue command influence.
    I am NOT in an organization that Congress oversees. If a Congresscritter doesn’t like me my boss isn’t going to be concerned about her job if she doesn’t fire me (or put me up on charges.) Actually I might benefit. So whether Murthaf*ckers words influenced my thinking on the issue is moot.

    The issue is simply this: Could his statements be taken by someone in the military as sort of a backhanded order, ie “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome man?”

    The question isn’t whether his words were so taken, it was whether they COULD be.

    Are you stating that there is no way in God’s green earth that it is possible to assume that someone in the military hierarchy MIGHT have taken his comments as an incentive to punish someone for something that wasn’t wrongdoing?

    BTW I used to know a guy who could do 130 wps on a typewriter, and back then you had to wait for the platen to move back to the start after each line. He was a legal secretary and, trust me, his work was scrutinized with a fine toothed comb for mistakes. I used to get a kick out of watching him type. Listening to him type was like listening to the difference between a Tommy gun and a gatling gun.

    Have you thought about taking up a collection or starting a foundation?

    There are several. I’ve contributed to some and helped spread the word on as many as I’ve heard of. Not enough, but a man does what he can, and I’ll continue to do so.

    However, even though I most certainly will do what I can to help as I always have, since when did that become the average citizen’s duty? When did it become our duty to clean up the gummint’s messes? The problem is that the government should be given a pooper-scooper and fucking well forced, at gunpoint if necessary, to clean up the mess that THEY made. They broke it, they own it.

    And even if they DID stand on their heads to make it right, even if they DID refund every cent of those families’ expenses, WITH interest, even THEN there’d be absolutely no way of giving them back the two years they lost because a bunch of feckless fuckwits wanted to sacrifice a few innocent servicemen in order to prove a point and make the seditionist swine in Congress happy.

    Skyechild….the wisest man I have ever known had a seventh grade education……. an old black man growing up in New Orleans in the thirties and forties, serving in Korea with honor. I worked with him, grew to love him. He stayed by his wife’s side as cancer killed her, he kept four of five sons out of prison, and was raised in abject poverty. But he knew and lived the finest human ideals, simply and quietly. Yet he knew what mattered…and what did not….I used to drive him to the vet center in Palo Alto where he could get his pain medication, for he was blown through the roof of a deuce and a half when his convoy hit a minefield…yet he never complained, just winced a lot. But I knew……and did what I could.

    Heck, we *all* make mistakes. Some of us correct them.

    Sure, I could have gone back into the comment and changed it, but why? You got nit-pickey and pointed it out as if it really mattered to anyone.

    For example, when misspellings occur, there is a spell check function here (which someone was kind enough to install) which points them out. There is also the possibility of, oh I don’t know, reviewing posts for errors before sending. Admittedly it’s not a perfect system, but it’s better than nothing.

    They I did? :em99: Do tell!

    I installed no such thing here, brainiac. You are seeing a red-squiggly line under misspelled words because you are using FireFox, not because there is a spell-checker here. I used to have a spell checker on this site for a short while, but that was almost two years and several WordPress versions ago. There hasn’t been a reliable spell checker made for WordPress yet.

    I just installed FireFox on this computer last night because I wanted to see what Wil was talking about. I had installed an AJAX comment posting plugin that apparently doesn’t work with Internet Exploder.

    Then their are those who repeatedly make the same errors in spelling and usage even after they have been pointed out. At that point it’s not a typo, it’s a deficiency in literacy. [emphasis mine]

    Ah, the irony, or was that on purpose? Do it again, I will have no choice but to assume that you have some literacy issues.

    There is a reason why they have a commonly misspelled words list of various lengths. One of those words is the word, “misspelled”.

    When I type, I usually see the word visually as I go. I can usually spot a misspelled word on a printed page just by glancing at the page. Sometimes, if I am in a hurry, something might slip by me. But there are a few words that get me every time, even though I should know better.

    I don’t usually rely on a spell-checker like you apparently do. Reliance on a spell-checker isn’t a solid indication of literacy — it just means you correct your mistakes if you find them.

    Some people here occasionally try to correct factual errors - for example by admitting they were mistaken when someone is nice enough to provide the correct information.

    Oh, you mean being nice enough to preface the comment with the following terms of endearment?

    #50 by DJ Allyn, would-be defense attorney pro bono for all traitors, liars, and tyrants:

    Yes, I can see the benevolence there. Friendly, neighborly, helpful.

    Sometimes, someone will - God Forbid - look up the correct information on their own initiative when challenged, saving others the burden of doing their homework for them.

    I misspelled the word “malice” for God’s sake! I’ve worked on over 25,000 lines of code on this site, and have occasionally made a mistake or typo somewhere along the line. Which do you think is more critical?

    (Disclaimer: I am sure there are probably a few undetected line errors in the code here that I haven’t come across yet.)

    Such self-correction is part of the training of scientists, and in time it becomes almost second nature. Obviously this is not a universally recognized or practiced skill.

    And you called me a pretentious fuckwit extraordinaire? They call that projection.

    And yet you do so. You masochist… :em93:

    I love train wrecks.

    Some of us actually took Latin

    Why, because you didn’t have a chance with the girls in school anyways?

    O ora de fimus

    You could have just said “asshole” — you didn’t have to show off.

    The entire point, you fatuous fuckwit, is that you don’t *HAVE* to prove malice; the accusation is malicious in itself. That’s what ‘per se‘ means, dickhead. Try talking to an attorney who actually has some expertise in this area, you might learn something.

    Are you trying to tell me that if you say something the malice is implied? That if you DO something that there was a specific intent for its outcome?

    People say things all the time without trying to be malicious.

    It doesn’t matter. He repeated it as fact. There is no way any reasonable person could have interpreted his claim as mere opinion. I suppose his attorney will try to use this as a point of defense, and it might actually work; but “I vas only follovink orters” doesn’t fly with me. A real Marine - hell, a real man - takes responsibility for his misdeeds.

    How often have you repeated something you’ve heard as a “fact”, only to find out later that it wasn’t true?

    I know that because of your previous hatred for Murtha, ANYthing he says or does is going to be viciously attacked ad infinitum. Nobody ever considered for a moment that he was just repeating something HE had been told was a fact. Instead, you make the assumption it was something he simply made up on the spot. Not exactly the first time a public official has made a claim about something, only to find out later that it wasn’t true. (WMD?)

    See above. By definition, the malice in Murthafucker’s statement was inherent and obvious. This is why defamation per se is distinguished from ‘ordinary’ defamation.

    See above.

    The classic examples of defamation per se are a) false accusation of a heinous crime, and b) false accusation of having a loathsome disease. (Attorneys being the clever critters they are, this is not an exhaustive list.)

    Of course this only works if a) he intended to defame an individual or a group by using knowingly false information; b) that he intended unwarranted harm.

    In criminal law, for a given actus reus, the requirement to prove intent consists of showing mens rea. The requirement of proof of intent is different in tort law where knowledge of repercussions is not always necessary. You really only need to show that there was a desire to perform an act. Still, there has to be intent. You have to show that Murtha intended to defame these Marines by using knowingly false information.

    Yes, but when the ‘people’ are Congressmen making false and malicious accusations which could influence a court to convict citizens of charges that carry the death penalty, it’s not a trivial matter.

    But can you prove that the accusations Murtha made at the time were knowingly false and malicious, and that he wasn’t using the best information available at the time? This is your burden of proof, and it is a tough one to show, considering you don’t know where he got his information from.

    As far as his statements influencing a Court? You could say that about every high profile legal case that has been plastered all over the media over the past 200 years.

    Yet even in spite of what Murtha said, the system is still working to the point where SSgt Wuterich is not going to be facing Murder charges. Doesn’t that kinda negate your argument a little?

    (Well, maybe it is trivial to someone who thinks the massacre of two million innocent people is no big deal…)

    Who said it was trivial? Do I see you screaming for our military to do something in Darfur right now? Where is your concern about the dead innocent Iraqis being killed on a regular basis? How about your concern about a lawless group of American contractors who kill innocent civilians just because they can without any repercussions?

    It can be easily argued that if we had never gotten involved in Vietnam in the early sixties, there wouldn’t have been 2 million innocents killed. All we did was prolong the inevitable, and you people have been trying to re-write history ever since.

    Is that the best you can do? I used to make beer money spell checking papers for people like you who were too fucking stupid to do it themselves. (Mind you, this was before automatic spell check was a common convenience; heck, it was so long ago we wrote papers with actual pens.)

    I am normally a good speller, thank you very much. The stupidity is better placed on your shoulders, since you make silly assumptions on a lot of things. Unlike you, I don’t rely on FireFox to make sure I’ve spelled a word correctly.

    Frankly, even if I do let a misspelled word slip by on occasion, I am certainly not going to lose any sleep over it. I will leave the petty stuff to you, since it bothers you so much.

    Doesn’t matter. While Murthaf*cker isn’t in the line of command he IS a member of Congress, would that it were otherwise. What he did was commit undue command influence.

    As I mentioned above, regardless of what Murtha said, it obviously didn’t have any influence on the outcome of this case. These guys stood accused BEFORE Murtha said anything, and they are not being charged according to anything he said.

    The issue is simply this: Could his statements be taken by someone in the military as sort of a backhanded order, ie “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome man?”

    Apparently they weren’t, now were they?

    The question isn’t whether his words were so taken, it was whether they COULD be.

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda? As it is frequently pointed out here and other places across the political landscape, CongressCritters say and do the stupidest things from time-to-time. It is in their DNA, and probably a prerequisite for the job. There should be a section on this site for Stupid Congress Tricks. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough disk space on this server to list all of them.

    BTW I used to know a guy who could do 130 wps on a typewriter, and back then you had to wait for the platen to move back to the start after each line. He was a legal secretary and, trust me, his work was scrutinized with a fine toothed comb for mistakes. I used to get a kick out of watching him type. Listening to him type was like listening to the difference between a Tommy gun and a gatling gun.

    I learned to type on an old Royal manual typewriter in seventh grade. I was the only boy in the class — which was my ulterior motive. We didn’t have electric typewriters, and we didn’t even have the concept of “touch-typing”. I think the best I ever got “stroke-typing” was around 60wpm (Note to Duke: you figure wpm by the number of words without mistakes)

    I’ve known people who could stroke-type around 100wpm, and that was awesome.

    Most people don’t realize that the QWERTY keyboard was designed to SLOW a typist down to prevent manual typewriters from jamming. The Dvorak keyboard has been kicked around for a while to replace the QWERTY layout, but it still hasn’t caught on.

    (Disclaimer: I am sure there are probably a few undetected line errors in the code here that I haven’t come across yet.)

    I’m pretty sure Duke will let you know . . .

    Twenty-Five THOUSAND lines of code? OMG! There might be 5 or even 6 errors in that! WHAT WILL WE DO? It’s the end of the world as we know it!

    Phtahhhhh!! =================================

    Dave, when I learned computers, there was no such thing as a laptop, or desktop, and MiniComputer meant a blue box the size of a refrigerator (only IBM made them, ya know) with a whopping 8 k byte of memory.

    Thank you for all your efforts.

    DJ sed:

    My favorite lately is “Horse Pussy”.

    I sed:

    ahhhh…so you’re a Hillary supporter eh?

    DJ sez:

    Nope. I think I mentioned elsewhere that she is probably as dangerous if not more so than Bush.

    She is a corporatist — just like Bush, and while she will throw a few bones to Liberals when she is elected, her number one patron will be her corporate masters.

    that was a joke son….are you sure that doctor didn’t take out your funnybone???

    I look forward to it.

    In case someone has noticed that I appear to be a bit testy lately, it is because I gave my two-week notice last week, and I will be out of a job as of this coming Friday. It isn’t being handled as a permanent resignation, They are going to keep the job open in case I am able to return in the next six to eight months. It’s just that right now I am not able to travel much — especially three to five trips a week between Seattle and Portland and back. Aaron is no longer here to fly me down and back since he moved to Texas last month.

    I could do a lot of the job from here — and I have — but there is a lot that I have to be on site to do — and I can’t. It is really frustrating to me, because I love the job and the people involved.

    A couple of you have belittled what I do without realizing what has been going on lately, and that has really been agonizing. It has been all I could do to refrain from going “psycho” on this site for a couple of those comments — but you didn’t know.

    Ordinarily, I would have just ignored the ignorance — as I usually do, but lately I have been under a lot of stress (and drugs). I am liable to (and have) said some stuff that I had no intention of saying.

    that was a joke son….are you sure that doctor didn’t take out your funnybone???

    In a manner of speaking, yes.

    Deej

    Despite all of our jousting here and the level of invective I throw at ya from time to time, I do think you’re a good person and I hate to hear of your difficulties.

    I pray that you’ll get through all this and get back to your “normal” self (sorry, can’t resist poking ya).

    At least you have an excuse. Some of us are cranky because it’s our natural state. How you put up with all the hell you catch here, I will never know.

    Be well, David.

    Well, DJ,

    I hope you know that I mean you no ill will, I just like sparring with you….and you give as well as you take, thats what makes it fun.

    If you feel like kicking some technical ass in the local school district let me know, God (and most of us teachers) know that they could use some of your IT expertise.

    Get well man…..

    This is like the Rock Candy Mountain compared to some of the situations I’ve been in.

    Thanks, but really, I could use a few months off anyways. I’ve got things covered pretty well. I’ll still do a little dabbling from time-to-time on the show — I still have an ownership share in it. but the day-to-day operations will be turned over to someone else.

    I may take the opportunity to go back to school, I don’t know. I haven’t really decided what I am going to do at this point. There is no real pressure to do anything at the moment, except to get physically better. I start physical therapy in less than a week, which will probably make me wish I were dead.

    Despite all of our jousting here and the level of invective I throw at ya from time to time, I do think you’re a good person and I hate to hear of your difficulties.

    It isn’t really a “difficulty” more of a detour.

    Duke, you make grammatical/spelling errors,such as this one (

    Then their are those

    Yup. Sometimes they even occur by accident. I’d like to thank you and DJ for reacting in *exactly* the manner I anticipated. :em99:

    You’ll get off with no penalty because you’re basically nice and I didn’t give you a specific warning. :em93:

    Of course this only works if a) he intended to defame an individual or a group by using knowingly false information; b) that he intended unwarranted harm.

    Wrong again. Reckless disregard for the truth is sufficient. The point you’re not getting is that certain statements are inherently defamatory; it is not necessary to prove malice because the accusation is *inherently* malicious.

    Do I see you screaming for our military to do something in Darfur right now?

    I thought we had no business intervening in purely internal civil wars? Besides, it would involve defending Christians from Muslim genocide, and we can’t do that - it might ‘offend’ them.

    How often have you repeated something you’ve heard as a “fact”, only to find out later that it wasn’t true?

    How often have I been a member of Congress whose commentary could get people railroaded on capital charges?

    Talk about Phony Sold-iers…Murtha Motherfucker lies about his sad ass record in the Reserves, then calls the real troops cowards and killers, this fat piece of lard should be tried and hung for treason.
