Withdraw When?

MSM spin has already started on the Murtha controversy. The AP is claiming, and the N&O is dutifully printing, that Murtha "called for troops to leave Iraq within six months." But what Murtha really called for is for troops to leave Iraq immediately, and that is what the Republicans pushed to a vote. Logistically and realistically it might take six months to get everyone out, but the Murtha surrender would have to start now, and honest reporting would make that clear so voters could understand the choice presented to them by the 2 parties.
