What Do These People Mean?

Besides the obvious (getting reelected), I’m not sure what Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) means by this: “Our military is suffering, the future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region.”

Does he want to leave the Iraqi people in the hands of Zarkawi & co. That would a a helluva betrayal of people like this. (At the link, Mohammed writes of the new torture allegations – this time allegedly on behalf of the New Iraqi regime. Who knows the extent of it? But however much makes the heart ache.)
