    i remember when murtha was considered a friend to the armed forces....but you will note...the book takes place under the bush admin and they are the ones who ordered the men to stand down when the men felt like they had a good chance of chasing bin laden

    I said the same thing-no jury would ever convict him-on another MB where this was being discussed...it was pointed out that, indeed, he potentially might be convicted based on the fact that chasing them down and then shooting them "in cold blood" would be a clear violation of the law.
    Maybe, maybe not, but of course either way he'd be dragged thru the slime as a defendant in criminal court so good for him that he didn't lose it-those douchebags aren't worth it.
    Damn shame the law can only give them 2 years, if that's accurate...seems to me there oughta be a way to stack other charges in there in addition to animal cruelty and run the sentences consecutively, or something.
    That was a really mean and vicious thing to do-to anyone's pet.
    Have they caught the other guy they were looking for yet, anyone know?

    The way I remember it Marcus Luttrell was the final say on whether or not to kill the shepards. He made the decision to let them live because of fear that Murtha would have them prosecuted for murder. Then of course just like he figured they would the shepards ran and told the Taliban of their presence. How many seals died because they were afraid to be prosecuted for murder? I forget was it ten.? sucks to be Murtha.

    They are making a movie about it, I do hope they do a good job and it's true to what happened.
