John Speaks, you listen. Murtha does have the ear of the military so this isn't surprising to hear from him.
Think Progress: Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) today on CBS's Face the Nation:
MURTHA: The public is way ahead of whats going on in Washington. They no longer believe it. The troops themselves, 70 percent of the troops said we want to come home within a year. The only solution to this is to redeploy. Let me tell you, the only people who want us in Iraq is Iran and al-Qaeda. I've talked to a top-level commander the other day, it was about two weeks ago, and he said China wants us there also. Why? Because were depleting our resources, our troop resources and our fiscal resources.
