Federal judge orders Murtha to testify in Haditha defamation case

OK, I buy into this guy's argument so long as Jack Murtha didn't name names. Should he have singled out Frank, then there's a case. If he only talked about the incident and didn't name anyone, it isn't an issue. Frank Wuterich is accused and his involvement isn't yet established except for...the idiot admitted he was one of the accused! Duh.

Addendum below.
A federal judge has ordered Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.) to testify in a defamation case related to the deaths of Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha in 2005, according to the Associated Press.

Murtha, a former Marine. accused Marines involved in the "cold-blooded murder and war crimes'' during the Haditha incident. Frank Wuterich, a Marine sergeant involved in the incident, has sued Murtha for defamation over his comments.

...

Frankly, I don't understand this ruling at all, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is appealed by the Justice Dept. and/or House general counsel's office on behalf of Murtha. Murtha, who can say some inappropriate things once in a while, was clearly acting in his capacity as a lawmaker when he made the comments and is thus protected by the Speech or Debate Clause from any type of prosecution for official acts.

Addendum: First off, Frank, should you decide to sue me for defamation you'll end up with a couple empty Diet Pepsi cans and navel lint. Second, when you have a traffic accident the first rule is SHUT THE FUCK UP! You don't admit to anything. Capiche?

What a maroon.

Via Politico.
