Confidence in War on Terror at Lowest Point Since Obama Supported Murtha in Smearing Haditha Marines
Barack Obama was wrong on Iraq and wrong on Haditha.
When asked about the Haditha incident in June 2006 on Hannity and Colmes, Barack Obama joined with democrrat John Murtha who said that US troops had killed innocents “in cold blood.“
Obama sided with his fellow antiwar Democratic colleague:
Colmes: Did Murtha say that in the right way?
Obama: You know, I don’t have the exact quotes in front of me. What I know is here is a guy who served our country. I would never second guess John Murtha… I think he’s somebody who knows of which he speaks.
Obama was wrong.
7 of 8 marines had their charges dismissed.
One marine awaits justice.
It was a smear job that devastated the morale of our troops at war.

Today, confidence in the war on terror has fallen back to its lowest point since 2006.
Confidence in America’s conduct of the war on terror has fallen to its lowest level in four-and-a-half years.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 32% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the United States and its allies are winning the war on terror. That’s down eight points from a month ago and the most pessimistic assessment since October 2006.
Twenty-four percent (24%) think the terrorists are winning. Thirty-nine percent (39%) say neither side is winning.
