Haditha Marine Prepares To Sue Murtha

One of the Haditha Marines who has been exonerated, is considering a lawsuit against Rep. John Murtha and Time Magazine reporter Tim McGuirk for the smear that led to the charges against him. Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani's lawyer said they are considering the move.

Chessani has a better shot at McGuirk than Murtha. Murtha is probably going to claim immunity under the Speech and Debate clause, but McGuirk might be on the hook for libel.

Still, just the publicity of pulling Murtha (a former Marine) into court to explain his actions and words is delicious.
