    Rep. Murtha Says Rumsfed, Cheney Should Resign, Fire Everyone Responsible For War

    Rep. Murtha says Rumsfeld, Cheney should resign

    Published: Sunday March 19, 2006

    On Sunday's edition of Meet the Press with Tim Russert, Congressman John Murtha (D-PA) said that Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld should resign for misdecisions in the war in Iraq, RAW STORY has found.

    Excerpts from Meet the Press:

    MR. RUSSERT: The president picks up the phone and calls you up, and says “Jack, come on down. You voted for this war, you now think it was a mistake, but we’re in a fix. And if I get out right away, we could leave behind a civil war, we could leave behind a haven for terrorism. Tell me specifically Mr. Murtha, what should I do today?”

    REP. MURTHA: Here, here’s what you should do, Mr. President. First of all, you should fire all the people who are responsible for that, which gives you international credibility.

    MR. RUSSERT: Including his secretary of defense?

    REP. MURTHA: Well, he, he should—well, let’s say he should offer his resignation, because he certainly...

    MR. RUSSERT: And it’s sure to be accepted?

    REP. MURTHA: I would accept it, that’s exactly right.

    MR. RUSSERT: What about the vice president?

    REP. MURTHA: Well, you can’t fire the vice president, so I think he’ll, he’ll have to handle this himself.

    MR. RUSSERT: Should he offer his resignation?

    REP. MURTHA: Yeah. Well, certainly the vice president has been the primary force in running, running this war, and many of the mischaracterizations have come about. You and I talked before the show about some of the things he said on your show, right before the war started. None of them turned out to be true. This is why the American public is so upset.

    OK, I say fire some people, that’s the first thing.

    MR. RUSSERT: Who should he fire?

    REP. MURTHA: Well, he, he, he’s got to make that decision himself. Anybody that’s been responsible, first of all, for the intelligence-gathering; second of all, for the characterization; and third of all, for the maintaining and running the war. For instance, from the national security office down to the secretary of defense’s office. I mean he’s got to make that decision.
